Poverty Dignified, Inc.

Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements

February 28, 2019

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Poverty Dignified, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 27, 2013, and is headquartered in Belmont, North Carolina. The Company was established as a renewable energy company, incubating solar technologies to establish electrification, education, connectivity and media distribution infrastructures in rural communities across the globe to empower the individual, community and local economy. My Power Solutions, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc., was incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 13, 2014 as a franchise business opportunity with Franchise Disclosure Documents for franchise sales in both the United States and South African markets. Africhise, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on August 28, 2015 to be the franchise management arm of My Power Solutions, Inc's franchise operations in Africa. My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of My Power Solutions, Inc., is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on June 14, 2018 to establish itself as a renewable energy solutions company in the Bahamas. B4dignity, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on January 18, 2019 to be a cause marketing company.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they may not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of financial position, results of operations or cash flows. It is management's opinion, however, that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made which are necessary for a fair financial statement presentation.

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Form 10-K, which contains the audited financial statements and notes thereto, together with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, for the year ended August 31, 2018. The interim results for the six months ended February 28, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of results for the full fiscal year.

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Poverty Dignified, Inc., My Power Solutions, Inc., Africhise, Inc., and My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc. However, My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc. and B4dignity, Inc. have yet to establish operations and have little to no activity to date. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These entities are collectively referred to herein as Poverty Dignified, or the Company.

 

In May 2018, following an operational review, the Company decided to withdraw all operations of My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa. With a lack of significant revenues and higher than expected expenses due to training on-the-ground personnel and the implementation of solar installations, plus the instability of the political environment, the established operating structure and initial business plan was not sustainable. The decision to cease the operations of My Power Solutions, Inc. in rural South African communities represents a strategic shift that impacts the Company’s financial reporting and results. As such, My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa has been classified as a discontinued operation.

 

Since it has been classified as a discontinued operation, the balance sheet amounts and results of operations for My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa have been reclassified from their historical presentation to assets and liabilities of discontinued operation on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and to discontinued operation on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss, respectively, for all periods presented. Losses associated with impairment of assets are recorded in discontinued operation in the period of the disposal. The Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows has also been reclassified for assets, liabilities and results of the discontinued operation for all periods presented. See Note 10 for more details regarding the discontinued operation.

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN AND PLAN OF OPERATION

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of February 28, 2019, the Company had cash of $19,194, a working capital deficit of $3,005,657 and a stockholders’ deficit of $3,005,657. The Company has incurred net losses from start-up costs and minimal operations since inception to February 28, 2019 and has ceased operations of its subsidiary, My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa. As a result, as of February 28, 2019, these issues raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset amounts or the classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company needs to generate revenues or must raise additional capital, reduce expenses and curtail cash outflows in order to be able to accomplish its business plan. In the interim, the Company will continue to pursue bridge capital as needed. The Company’s $3,033,264 of total liabilities at February 28, 2019 includes $1,114,207 of notes payable to a related party, $1,089,950 of accrued payroll expenses due to current and former Company management, and $6,725 due to a former officer of the Company, all of which we believe, but cannot guarantee, we can delay payment on over the next twelve months. During the six months ended February 28, 2019, we received net proceeds totaling $147,250 from two convertible notes payable. For all of our convertible notes payable, payments become due in fiscal year 2019, or can be repaid through conversion into the Company’s common stock. During the six months ended, and also subsequent to February 28, 2019, payments totaling $58,035 have been netted against the outstanding principal of convertible notes payable through the issuance of common stock. Additionally, subsequent to February 28, 2019, the Company issued a convertible promissory note to Power Up Lending Group, LTD. in the amount of $25,000, resulting in net proceeds of $22,000 to the Company after the payment of debt issuance costs. As such, we believe we have the capabilities and available resources to continue for the next twelve months, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

 

Plan of Operation

 

As a renewable energy Company, Poverty Dignified remains committed to incubating solar technologies that establish electrification, education, connectivity and media distribution infrastructures in rural communities across the globe to empower the individual, community and local economy. Plans are underway to recapitalize the Company over the next two quarters, which if successful, would provide the necessary operational capital to execute its plan of operation.

 

The core values of the Company are 1) To be a renewable energy company focused on community development that champions the cause of dignity for a forgotten people by empowering them to implement practical solutions through an intentional, hands on engagement model that promotes entrepreneurial education, micro-business incubation and installation of basic solar power solutions. 2) To implement entrepreneurial education programs that strengthen and enhance the local community through actionable awareness of basic solar technology, discovery and implementation of business development opportunities and hands-on vocational training programs. 3) To develop a repeatable micro-business incubation model (with an emphasis on apprenticeships) that creates a sustainable economic development blueprint for rural communities to improve the quality of life for everyone. 4) To install basic solar power solutions as a transformation catalyst to kickstart the stalled economic growth problems in rural communities.

 

We want to promote a cycle of sustainability in rural communities. We also recognize a need for reliable and affordable power, and we believe solar power is the best solution for rural settings. For this reason, we intend to combine entrepreneurial education, micro-business development and solar power installations – with the hope of creating jobs through micro-business development and installation of solar power in rural communities to achieve the goal of stimulating economic growth and creating a pathway out of poverty into dignity.

 

We are not a charity, and we are not under any impression that we need to rescue rural communities. We are a for profit business that believes in developing integrated business partnerships to create opportunities for empowerment for everyone. It is our goal to do two things: 1) integrate solar technology solutions that will improve power efficiency and 2) facilitate business development through entrepreneurial education and community development.

In June 2018, the Company established My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc. to begin offering renewable energy solutions throughout the Bahamas, but to date has no operations. On January 18, 2019, the Company established B4dignity, Inc. as a cause marketing company focused on lowering the cost of solar power for rural communities, but to date has no operations. We plan to partner with rural communities to create micro-business opportunities that invite the opportunity to pilot the implementation of low-cost, energy efficient solar power generation and power storage products. In this way, funding for solar energy solutions in rural communities won’t be a pipe dream but rather a realistic and achievable goal. Through an established eco-system of partners who provide basic products and services to the community, we can champion the rural community development story, and build a diversified online platform to facilitate e-commerce marketing efforts that can achieve sustainable business growth to help fund the implementation of basic solar power for the community. With an apprenticeship approach and vocational skills training programs, individuals in rural communities can apply their skills and training anywhere they wish, either to grow a business of their own or as a valuable employee of an existing local business to support their family and community.

 

A portion of all sales from products and services will be used to offset the initial cost of installing solar power for a family or school in the community. By sharing their story, we will elevate the voice of the rural community and highlight the sustainable micro-business development model we are helping to champion as a model for rural communities. We believe this is a repeatable model that can be implemented in any rural community across the globe to provide renewable solar power and sustainable business development.

 

In addition to working with local community business partners to install solar power solutions and provide business development skills training, we are also building joint venture relationships with technology companies that are revolutionizing solar power technology and battery power management. We are already seeing positive results that may lead to significant efficiency improvements and lower the cost for solar power generation and distribution, which would make solar power available to everyone at an affordable price. We believe these new solutions could make a powerful impact on society and transform rural communities, which in turn would drive revenue for the Company.

 

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and reported amounts of expenses in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash

 

The Company maintains funds in financial institutions that are members of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). As such, funds are insured based on Federal Reserve limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in the past, and management believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on the current account balances. At times, cash balances may exceed insured limits.

 

The Company has determined that the functional currency of its foreign subsidiaries is the local currency. At February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018, the Company had no cash in foreign bank accounts.

 

Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets

 

Prepaid expenses and other current assets consist of payments primarily related to a professional fee retainer, payroll advance and short-term deposits.

Table of Contents

 

Property and Equipment, Net

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally between three and five years. As of February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018, property and equipment consists of computer equipment with a total cost of $1,607 and accumulated depreciation of $1,607. There was no depreciation expense during the six months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018.

 

The Company periodically evaluates the fair value of fixed assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that carrying amounts may not be recoverable. As a result of the discontinued operation in South Africa, during the six months ended February 28, 2018, the solar equipment for containers was written down to its net realizable value of $-0- and the Company recognized a loss on impairment of $54,141.

 

Accrued Expenses

 

Accrued expenses are recorded when incurred and primarily consist of accrued interest on notes payable and amounts due for supplies and travel. Accrued payroll consists of salary amounts earned but deferred by the Company's management team.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Company has certain financial instruments that contain embedded derivatives. The Company evaluates all its financial instruments to determine if those contracts or any potential embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be accounted for separately. This accounting treatment requires that the carrying amount of any embedded derivatives be recorded at fair value at issuance and marked-to-market at each balance sheet date. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, as is the case with the Company, the change in the fair value during the period is recorded as either income or expense. Upon conversion, exercise or repayment, the respective derivative liability is marked to fair value at the conversion, repayment or exercise date and then the related fair value amount is reclassified to income or expense as part of gain or loss on extinguishment.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue once there is pervasive evidence that an agreement exists; the product and/or service have been rendered; the fee is fixed and determinable; and collection of the amount due is reasonably assured. There are no revenues from continuing or discontinued operations for the six months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018.

 

Advertising

 

Advertising expenditures are charged to expense as incurred and are included in general and administrative expense. Total advertising expense for the six months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018 was $102 and $-0-, respectively.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments consist primarily of cash, prepaid expenses and other current assets, current assets of discontinued operation, accounts payable, accrued payroll expenses, accrued expenses, current liabilities of discontinued operation, derivative liabilities, convertible notes and notes payable. The carrying amounts of such financial instruments approximate their respective estimated fair value due to the short-term maturities and approximate market interest rates of these instruments.

 

The Company adopted ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements (“ASC Topic 820”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The standard provides a consistent definition of fair value which focuses on an exit price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The standard also prioritizes, within the measurement of fair value, the use of market-based information over entity specific information and establishes a three-level hierarchy for fair value measurements based on the nature of inputs used in the valuation of an asset or liability as of the measurement date.

 

 
10
 
Table of Contents

 

The three-level hierarchy for fair value measurements is defined as follows:

 

Level 1 – inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets; liabilities in active markets;

 

Level 2 – inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability other than quoted prices, either directly or indirectly, including inputs in markets that are not considered to be active; or directly or indirectly including inputs in markets that are not considered to be active;

 

Level 3 – inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement

 

The following table summarizes fair value measurements by level at February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018, measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in the consolidated financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority.

 

The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination. Interest and penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits would be classified as additional income taxes in the consolidated statements of income. No interest or penalties were recognized for the years ended August 31, 2018 or 2017.

 

Tax years 2015 and forward remain open to examination under United States statute of limitations. Management is not aware of any material uncertain tax positions and no liability has been recognized at February 28, 2019 or August 31, 2018.

Earnings Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share are computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each year, while diluted earnings per share are based on the weighted-average number of common shares and common share equivalents outstanding.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

For financial reporting purposes, the functional currency of the discontinued foreign operation of My Power Solutions, Inc. is the local currency. The assets and liabilities of the discontinued foreign operation for which the local currency is the functional currency are translated into the U.S. dollar at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date, while revenues and expenses are translated at average exchange rates during the period. The accumulated foreign currency translation adjustment is presented as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss in the consolidated statement of changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit).

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in the prior period have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation, including those of the discontinued operation. These reclassifications had no impact on previously reported stockholders’ deficit or net loss.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet effective, Accounting Standards Updates (ASU) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and does not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements may be expected to cause a material impact on its financial condition or the results of operations.

 

NOTE 4 - STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (DEFICIT)

 

In September 2013, the Company authorized the issue of 100,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock at a par value of $.0001. There is a total of 12,096,152 and 10,107,394 shares of common stock issued and outstanding at February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018, respectively. Preferred stockholders could receive preferential treatment relative to declared dividends, should there be any, and to distributions upon a liquidation event. As of February 28, 2019, no preferred stock has been issued.

 

Since incorporation, the Company has raised capital through private sales of its common stock. In its private placement memorandum dated January 2014 and closed November 2014, the Company raised $1,182,180 for its operations, research and development, and marketing of its franchise opportunities. Since our original Private Placement Offering was not sufficient to capitalize the Company, Poverty Dignified, Inc. conducted a Private Investment in Public Equity transaction, in which the Company offered 1,000,000 unregistered shares to accredited investors at a discounted price of $0.75 per share to raise an additional $750,000 of growth capital. Under this offering, the Company sold 999,970 shares of common stock for proceeds of $749,977, including 784,302 shares of common stock for proceeds of $588,226 during the year ended August 31, 2017. Poverty Dignified, Inc. did a Private Placement Memorandum, in which the Company offered 2,000,000 shares at a price of $1.50 per share to raise an additional $3,000,000 in growth capital. In this Private Placement Memorandum, the Company has the option to sell shares at a price lower than the $1.50 per share. Through August 31, 2017, under this Private Placement Memorandum, the Company issued 144,000 shares of common stock at a discounted price of $0.75 per share for proceeds of $108,000 and issued 49,700 shares of common stock at the offering price of $1.50 per share for proceeds of $74,550. During the year ended August 31, 2018, the Company issued 10,800 shares at a discounted price of $0.75 per share and 6,000 shares at a price of $1.50 for total proceeds of $17,100.

As of February 28, 2019, of our 12,096,152 outstanding shares of common stock, 8,204,758 shares were issued to various stockholders in exchange for services and/or under restricted stock agreements. Relative to those shares, since inception, the Company has recognized total expense of $6,524,029. During the six months ended February 28, 2019, the Company issued 1,288,758 shares for stock compensation expense of $200,957. During the six months ended February 28, 2018, the Company issued 175,000 shares for stock compensation expense of $85,750.

 

NOTE 5 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Based on a May 2018 performance review by Poverty Dignified Inc.’s Board of Directors, the decision was made to withdraw all operations of its wholly owned subsidiary, My Power Solutions, Inc., in South Africa. As a result, My Power Solutions South African employees and consultants have filed a dispute with The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration ( CCMA ) in South Africa. As the Company winds down its local operations in South Africa, legal counsel has confirmed that the creditors of the Company will only have claims against the insolvent estate of the local external company and not against My Power Solutions, Inc. or Poverty Dignified Inc in the United States. It is therefore managements position that there is no probable recourse that will have an adverse effect on Poverty Dignified, Inc.

 

NOTE 6 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

On December 21, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement whereas, Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (the "buyer") wished to purchase from the Company securities consisting of the Company’s 8% convertible notes payable for an aggregate principal amount of up to $120,000. As additional consideration, the Company issued a Common Stock Purchase Warrant (the “warrant”) for 32,000 shares at an exercise price of $1.25 over an exercise period of 5 years. Due to the provisions of the warrant, the warrant was classified as a derivative warrant liability, the fair value of which was determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. On May 11, 2018, the Company repaid the convertible note payable. However, the warrant remains outstanding and the derivative liability associated with it was valued at $136 and $7,086 at February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018, respectively.

 

On June 21, 2018, the Company issued a convertible note to Power Up Lending Group, LTD. for $128,000. The note bears interest at 12%, matures on March 30, 2019, and is convertible into common stock at 58% of the lowest 3 closing market prices of the previous 10 trading days prior to conversion. The Company also recorded a $3,000 debt discount due to issuance fees. The holder’s conversion option under the note does not become active until 180 days after the issuance date. During the six months ended February 28, 2019, the holder’s option to convert became active and the Company recorded a derivative liability of $38,008, in which the fair value of the embedded derivative was determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. The value of the derivative liability was attributed to debt discount. The debt discount is amortized over the term of the note or to the date of conversion, and the derivative liability is revalued at each conversion or reporting date to fair value. Any change in fair value is credited or charged to the statement of operations in the period.

 

On July 13, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement whereas, EMA Financial, LLC (the "buyer") wishes to purchase from the Company a 10% convertible note for a principal amount of $83,500. On July 13, 2018, the Company issued a convertible promissory note (the “note”) to the buyer for $81,830 in proceeds, after a $1,670 original issue discount. The note matures on April 12, 2019. The note is convertible at a conversion price of 50% of the lowest trading price during the 10 days prior to the conversion date. At the closing, the Company paid closing costs and a consulting fee totaling $7,340. Accordingly, the Company recorded a debt discount of $9,010. At issuance, the holder’s option to convert was active and the Company recorded a derivative liability of $48,702, in which the fair value of the embedded derivative was determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. The derivative liability was attributed to debt discount. The debt discount is amortized over the term of the note or to the date of conversion, and the derivative liability is revalued at each conversion or reporting date to fair value. Any change in fair value is credited or charged to the statement of operations in the period. During the six months ended February 28, 2019, the holder effected four conversions for a total of 700,000 shares to extinguish a portion of the convertible note payable. As a result, the Company recorded a loss on extinguishment of debt of $18,490.

On September 27, 2018, the Company issued a convertible note to Power Up Lending Group, LTD. for $53,000. The note bears interest at 12%, matures on July 15, 2019, and is convertible into common stock at 58% of the lowest 3 closing market prices of the previous 10 trading days prior to conversion. The Company also recorded a $3,000 debt discount due to issuance fees. The holder’s conversion option under the note does not become active until 180 days after the issuance date.

 

On November 6, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement whereas, Auctus Fund, LLC (the "buyer") wishes to purchase from the Company a 12% convertible note for a principal amount of $111,000. On November 6, 2018, the Company issued a convertible promissory note (the “note”) to the buyer for $97,250 in proceeds, after a $13,750 reduction for issuance fees. The note matures on August 6, 2019. The note is convertible at a conversion price of 55% of the lowest trading price during the 25-day period ending one trading day prior to the date of the conversion notice. At the closing, the Company paid closing costs and fees totaling $6,000. Accordingly, the Company recorded a debt discount of $19,750. At issuance, the holder’s option to convert was active and the Company recorded a derivative liability of $15,063, in which the fair value of the embedded derivative was determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. The derivative liability was attributed to debt discount. The debt discount is amortized over the term of the note or to the date of conversion, and the derivative liability is revalued at each conversion or reporting date to fair value. Any change in fair value is credited or charged to the statement of operations in the period.

Amortization of the debt discounts recorded as interest expense during the six months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018 totaled $73,334 and $94,345, respectively.

 

Each of the convertible notes payable include a debt covenant stating that during the period the conversion right exists, the borrower will reserve from its authorized and unissued common stock a sufficient number of shares, free from preemptive rights, to provide for the issuance of common stock upon the full conversion of the notes issued pursuant to the securities purchase agreement. The borrower is required at all times to have authorized and reserved between five to ten times the number of shares that would be issuable upon full conversion of the note. At April 15,2019, the Company did not have sufficient authorized and unissued common stock to meet the reserve demand of its convertible notes payable, and Management intends to rectify this deficit during the third quarter.

 

NOTE 7 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The Company analyzed the warrant and beneficial conversion features (“BCF”) for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815, “ Derivatives and Hedging,” and determined that the warrant was a derivative warrant liability and that the conversion options on convertible notes payable become derivatives at the point the holder’s option to convert becomes active and there is active trading of the Company’s stock.

 

The Company determined our derivative liabilities to be a Level 3 fair value measurement and used the Black-Scholes pricing model to calculate the fair value as of February 28, 2019 and August 31, 2018. The Black-Scholes model requires six basic data inputs: the exercise or strike price, time to expiration, the risk-free interest rate, the current stock price, the estimated volatility of the stock price in the future, and the dividend rate. Changes to these inputs could produce a significantly higher or lower fair value measurement. The fair value of each convertible note is estimated using the Black-Scholes valuation model.

NOTE 8 – INCOME TAXES

 

Due to continued operating losses, there is a full valuation against gross deferred tax assets for the period from inception through February 28, 2019.

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amount used for federal and state income tax purposes.

As of February 28, 2019, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards in the amount of $4,148,169, of which $3,164,932 was incurred in the U.S. and $983,237 was the result of cumulative operating losses of the Company’s subsidiaries in South Africa, which have now been discontinued. Because of the Company’s lack of earnings history and uncertainty regarding the usability of the losses from its discontinued operation in South Africa, the net operating loss carryforwards and other deferred tax assets have been fully offset by a valuation allowance. The valuation allowance increased by $48,098 and $335,222 during the six months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Our federal net operating losses will begin to expire in 2034 and our state tax loss carryforwards will begin to expire in 2029. Federal net operating losses incurred in 2018 and after carryforward indefinitely.

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

 

With the exception of historical matters, the matters discussed herein are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning anticipated trends in revenues and net income, projections concerning operations and available cash flow. Our actual results could differ materially from the results discussed in such forward-looking statements. The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes thereto appearing elsewhere herein.

 

Background Overview

 

Poverty Dignified, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 27, 2013, and is headquartered in Belmont, North Carolina. The Company was established as a renewable energy company, incubating solar technologies to establish electrification, education, connectivity and media distribution infrastructures in rural communities across the globe to empower the individual, community and local economy. My Power Solutions, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc., was incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 13, 2014 as a franchise business opportunity with Franchise Disclosure Documents for franchise sales in both the United States and South African markets. Africhise, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on August 28, 2015 to be the franchise management arm of My Power Solutions, Inc's franchise operations in Africa. My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of My Power Solutions, Inc., is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on June 14, 2018 to establish itself as a renewable energy solutions company in the Bahamas. B4dignity, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Poverty Dignified, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation, and was formed on January 18, 2019 to be a cause marketing company.

 

In May 2018, following an operational review, the Company decided to withdraw all operations of My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa. With a lack of significant revenues and higher than expected expenses due to training on-the-ground personnel and the implementation of solar installations, plus the instability of the political environment, the established operating structure and initial business plan was not sustainable. The decision to cease the operations of My Power Solutions, Inc. in rural South African communities represents a strategic shift that impacts the Company’s financial reporting and results. As such, My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa has been classified as a discontinued operation.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of February 28, 2019, the Company had cash of $19,194, a working capital deficit of $3,005,657 and a stockholders’ deficit of $3,005,657. The Company has incurred net losses from start-up costs and minimal operations since inception to February 28, 2019 and has ceased operations of its subsidiary, My Power Solutions, Inc. in South Africa. As a result, as of February 28, 2019, these issues raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset amounts or the classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company needs to generate revenues or must raise additional capital, reduce expenses and curtail cash outflows in order to be able to accomplish its business plan. In the interim, the Company will continue to pursue bridge capital as needed. The Company’s $3,033,264 of total liabilities at February 28, 2019 includes $1,114,207 of notes payable to a related party, $1,089,950 of accrued payroll expenses due to current and former Company management, and $6,725 due to a former officer of the Company, all of which we believe, but cannot guarantee, we can delay payment on over the next twelve months. During the six months ended February 28, 2019, we received net proceeds totaling $147,250 from two convertible notes payable. For all of our convertible notes payable, payments become due in fiscal year 2019, or can be repaid through conversion into the Company’s common stock. During the six months ended, and also subsequent to February 28, 2019, payments totaling $58,035 have been netted against the outstanding principal of convertible notes payable through the issuance of common stock. Additionally, subsequent to February 28, 2019, the Company issued a convertible promissory note to Power Up Lending Group, LTD. in the amount of $25,000, resulting in net proceeds of $22,000 to the Company after the payment of debt issuance costs. As such, we believe we have the capabilities and available resources to continue for the next twelve months, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Plan of Operation

 

As a renewable energy Company, Poverty Dignified remains committed to incubating solar technologies that establish electrification, education, connectivity and media distribution infrastructures in rural communities across the globe to empower the individual, community and local economy. Plans are underway to recapitalize the Company over the next two quarters, which if successful, would provide the necessary operational capital to execute its plan of operation.

 

The core values of the Company are 1) To be a renewable energy company focused on community development that champions the cause of dignity for a forgotten people by empowering them to implement practical solutions through an intentional, hands on engagement model that promotes entrepreneurial education, micro-business incubation and installation of basic solar power solutions. 2) To implement entrepreneurial education programs that strengthen and enhance the local community through actionable awareness of basic solar technology, discovery and implementation of business development opportunities and hands-on vocational training programs. 3) To develop a repeatable micro-business incubation model (with an emphasis on apprenticeships) that creates a sustainable economic development blueprint for rural communities to improve the quality of life for everyone. 4) To install basic solar power solutions as a transformation catalyst to kickstart the stalled economic growth problems in rural communities.

 

We want to promote a cycle of sustainability in rural communities. We also recognize a need for reliable and affordable power, and we believe solar power is the best solution for rural settings. For this reason, we intend to combine entrepreneurial education, micro-business development and solar power installations – with the hope of creating jobs through micro-business development and installation of solar power in rural communities to achieve the goal of stimulating economic growth and creating a pathway out of poverty into dignity.

 

We are not a charity, and we are not under any impression that we need to rescue rural communities. We are a for profit business that believes in developing integrated business partnerships to create opportunities for empowerment for everyone. It is our goal to do two things: 1) integrate solar technology solutions that will improve power efficiency and 2) facilitate business development through entrepreneurial education and community development.

 

In June 2018, the Company established My Power Solutions Bahamas, Inc. to begin offering renewable energy solutions throughout the Bahamas, but to date has no operations. On January 18, 2019, the Company established B4dignity, Inc. as a cause marketing company focused on lowering the cost of solar power for rural communities, but to date has no operations. We plan to partner with rural communities to create micro-business opportunities that invite the opportunity to pilot the implementation of low-cost, energy efficient solar power generation and power storage products. In this way, funding for solar energy solutions in rural communities won’t be a pipe dream but rather a realistic and achievable goal. Through an established eco-system of partners who provide basic products and services to the community, we can champion the rural community development story, and build a diversified online platform to facilitate e-commerce marketing efforts that can achieve sustainable business growth to help fund the implementation of basic solar power for the community. With an apprenticeship approach and vocational skills training programs, individuals in rural communities can apply their skills and training anywhere they wish, either to grow a business of their own or as a valuable employee of an existing local business to support their family and community.

 

A portion of all sales from products and services will be used to offset the initial cost of installing solar power for a family or school in the community. By sharing their story, we will elevate the voice of the rural community and highlight the sustainable micro-business development model we are helping to champion as a model for rural communities. We believe this is a repeatable model that can be implemented in any rural community across the globe to provide renewable solar power and sustainable business development.

 

In addition to working with local community business partners to install solar power solutions and provide business development skills training, we are also building joint venture relationships with technology companies that are revolutionizing solar power technology and battery power management. We are already seeing positive results that may lead to significant efficiency improvements and lower the cost for solar power generation and distribution, which would make solar power available to everyone at an affordable price. We believe these new solutions could make a powerful impact on society and transform rural communities, which in turn would drive revenue for the Company.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company needs to generate revenues or must raise additional capital, reduce expenses and curtail cash outflows in order to be able to accomplish its business plan. In the interim, the Company plans to defer certain payments. The Company’s $3,077,976 of total liabilities at February 28, 2019, includes $1,114,207 of notes payable to a related party, $1,089,950 of accrued payroll expenses due to current and former Company management, and $6,725 due to a former officer of the Company, all of which we believe, but cannot guarantee, we can delay payment on over the next twelve months.

To continue as a going concern and achieve a profitable level of operations, we will need, among other things, additional capital resources. Management’s plan to continue as a going concern includes raising investment capital through leveraging equity in the Company, generating revenue through operations and securing additional debt and/or equity financing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that we will be successful in accomplishing any of our plans to raise additional investment capital or generate revenue through operations. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon management’s ability to successfully implement the plans described above. Management cannot provide any assurance that unforeseen circumstances that may occur at any time within the next twelve months, or thereafter, will not increase the need for us to raise additional capital on an immediate basis. There can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to raise funds in subsequent debt or equity financings, in which case the Company may be unable to meet its obligations.

Our net cash used in operating activities of our continuing operation was only $114,146 for the six months ended February 28, 2019. However, we do not currently have enough cash on hand to deploy our business plan in 2019. To achieve a profitable level of operations, we will need, among other things, additional capital resources. Management’s plan to continue as a going concern includes raising investment capital through leveraging equity in the Company, generating revenue through operations and by securing additional debt and/or equity financing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that we will be successful in accomplishing any of our plans to raise additional investment capital or generate revenue through operations.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not required

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Based upon an evaluation of the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures, our principal executive and financial officer has concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were not effective. The Company’s principal executive and financial officer has determined that there are material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures.

 

The material weaknesses in our disclosure control procedures are as follows:

 

1)

lack of a functioning audit committee due to a lack of a majority of independent members and a lack of a majority of outside directors on our Board of Directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal control and procedures; and

2)

inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives;

 

We recognize the importance of the control environment as it sets the overall tone for the organization and is the foundation for all other components of internal control.

 

As of April 15, 2019, while we have a third-party consultant to help us with our public reporting and disclosures we have not taken action to correct the material weaknesses identified above in our internal control over financial reporting. Once the Company has additional sales activities and has sufficient personnel available, then our Board of Directors, in connection with the aforementioned weaknesses, will implement the following remediation measures:

 

We will hire additional personnel with sufficient qualifications to allow us to segregate duties consistent with control objectives and will increase our personnel resources and technical accounting expertise within the accounting function when funds are available to us. We plan to use some of the funds through the private placement offering to allocate to this additional salary cost.

 

And, we plan to appoint one or more outside directors to our board of directors who shall be appointed to an audit committee resulting in a fully functioning audit committee who will undertake the oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures such as reviewing and approving estimates and assumptions made by management when funds are available to us.

 

Management believes that the appointment of one or more outside directors, who shall be appointed to a fully functioning audit committee, will remedy the lack of a functioning audit committee and a lack of a majority of outside directors on our Board.

 

If we are able to raise additional capital, we anticipate having sufficient funds to at least partially, if not fully, implement our plans by August 31, 2019. Additionally, we plan to test our updated controls and remediate our deficiencies by August 31, 2019.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

The Company is not a party to any pending legal proceedings, and no such proceedings are known to be contemplated.

 

No director, officer, or affiliate of the issuer and no owner of record or beneficiary of more than 5% of the securities of the issuer, or any security holder is a party adverse to the small business issuer or has a material interest adverse to the small business issuer.

 

Based on a recent performance review by Poverty Dignified Inc.’s Board of Directors, the decision was made to withdraw all operations of its wholly owned subsidiary, My Power Solutions, Inc., in South Africa.
