AMERICAN CANNABIS COMPANY, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2018 and 2017, and THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2017

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1. Description of the Business

 

American Cannabis Company, Inc. and its subsidiary Company, Hollister & Blacksmith, Inc., doing business as American Cannabis Consulting (“American Cannabis Consulting”), (collectively “the “Company”) are based in Denver, Colorado and operate a fully integrated business model that features end-to-end solutions for businesses operating in the regulated cannabis industry in states and countries where cannabis is regulated and/or has been decriminalized for medical use and/or legalized for recreational use. The Company provides advisory and consulting services specific to this industry, designs industry specific products and facilities, and manages a strategic group partnership that offers both exclusive and nonexclusive customer products commonly used in the industry. American Cannabis Company, Inc. is a publicly listed company quoted on the OTC Pink Tier under the symbol “AMMJ”.

 

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Accounting

 

The financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The Company has elected a fiscal year ending on December 31. Certain balance sheet reclassifications have been made to prior period balances to reflect the current period’s presentation format; such reclassifications had no impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations or consolidated statements of cash flows and had no material impact on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.

 

Use of Estimates in Financial Reporting

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amount of assets and liabilities, and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities, as of the date of the financial statements during the periods presented. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically, and the effects of revisions are reflected in the financial statements in the period in which they are deemed to be necessary. Significant estimates made in the accompanying financial statements include but are not limited to following: those related to revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts and unbilled services, lives and recoverability of equipment and other longlived assets, contingencies and litigation. The Company is subject to uncertainties, such as the impact of future events, economic, environmental and political factors, and changes in the business climate; therefore, actual results may differ from those estimates. When no estimate in a given range is deemed to be better than any other when estimating contingent liabilities, the low end of the range is accrued. Accordingly, the accounting estimates used in the preparation of the Company's financial statements will change as new events occur, as more experience is acquired, as additional information is obtained and as the Company's operating environment changes. Changes in estimates are made when circumstances warrant. Such changes and refinements in estimation methodologies are reflected in reported results of operations; if material, the effects of changes in estimates are disclosed in the notes to the financial statements.

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation SX. Accordingly, the financial statements 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 adjustments consisting of normal recurring entries necessary for a fair statement of the periods presented for: (a) the financial position; (b) the result of operations; and (c) cash flows, have been made in order to make the financial statements presented not misleading. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operations for a full year.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of nine months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are held in operating accounts at a major financial institution.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recorded at the net value of face amount less an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company evaluates its accounts receivable periodically based on specific identification of any accounts receivable for which the Company deems the net realizable value to be less than the gross amount of accounts receivable recorded; in these cases, an allowance for doubtful accounts is established for those balances. In determining its need for an allowance for doubtful accounts, the Company considers historical experience, analysis of past due amounts, client creditworthiness and any other relevant available information. However, the Company’s actual experience may vary from its estimates. If the financial condition of its clients were to deteriorate, resulting in their inability or unwillingness to pay the Company’s fees, it may need to record additional allowances or writeoffs in future periods. This risk is mitigated to the extent that the Company receives retainers from its clients prior to performing significant services.

7

 

The allowance for doubtful accounts, if any, is recorded as a reduction in revenue to the extent the provision relates to fee adjustments and other discretionary pricing adjustments. To the extent the provision relates to a client's inability to make required payments on accounts receivables, the provision is recorded in operating expenses. As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, the Company’s allowance for doubtful accounts was $21,334 and $21,581, respectively. The Company recorded bad debt expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $21,514 and $73,280 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

Deposits

 

Deposits is comprised of advance payments made to third parties, primarily for inventory for which the Company has not yet taken title. When the Company takes title to inventory for which deposits are made, the related amount is classified as inventory, then recognized as a cost of revenues upon sale.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is comprised of products and equipment owned by the Company to be sold to endcustomers. Inventory is valued at cost, based on the specific identification method, unless and until the market value for the inventory is lower than cost, in which case an allowance is established to reduce the valuation to market value. As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, market values of all of the Company’s inventory were greater than cost, and accordingly, no such valuation allowances were recognized.

 

Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets

 

Prepaid expenses and other current assets is primarily comprised of advance payments made to third parties for independent contractors’ services or other general expenses. Prepaid services and general expenses are amortized over the applicable periods which approximate the life of the contract or service period.

 

Significant Clients and Customers

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, three customers individually accounted for $248,937 of the Company’s total revenues equaling approximately 79.37% of the Company’s total revenues for the period.

 

Property and Equipment, net

 

Property and Equipment is stated at net book value, cost less depreciation. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation of owned equipment is provided using the straightline method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, ranging from two to seven years. Costs associated with inprogress construction are capitalized as incurred and depreciation is consummated once the underlying asset is placed into service. Property and equipment is reviewed for impairment as discussed below under “Accounting for the Impairment of LongLived Assets.” The Company did not capitalize any interest as of September 30, 2018.

 

Accounting for the Impairment of LongLived Assets

 

The Company evaluates longlived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Upon such an occurrence, recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to forecasted undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. For longlived assets held for sale, assets are written down to fair value, less cost to sell. Fair value is determined based on discounted cash flows, appraised values or management's estimates, depending upon the nature of the assets. The Company had not recorded any impairment charges related to longlived assets as of September 30, 2018 or December 31, 2017.

 

Beneficial Conversion Feature

 

If the conversion features of conventional convertible debt provides for a rate of conversion that is below market value at issuance, this feature is characterized as a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”). A BCF is recorded by the Company as a debt discount pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ACF”) Topic 470-20 Debt with Conversion and Other Options. In those circumstances, the convertible debt is recorded net of the discount related to the BCF, and the Company amortizes the discount to interest expense, over the life of the debt using the effective interest method.

8

 

Revenue Recognition

 

For annual reporting periods after December 15, 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) made effective ASU 2014-09 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” to supersede previous revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP. Revenue is now recognized in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 606, Revenue Recognition. The guidance presents a single five-step model for comprehensive revenue recognition that requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Two options are available for implementation of the standard which is either the retrospective approach or cumulative effect adjustment approach. The guidance becomes effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period, with early adoption permitted. We determined to implement the cumulative effect adjustment approach to our implementation of FASB ASC Topic 606, with no restatement of the comparative periods presented. We intend to apply this method to any incomplete contracts we determine are subject to FASB ASC Topic 606 prospectively. As is more fully discussed below, we are of the opinion that none of our contracts for services or products contain significant financing components that require revenue adjustment under FASB ASC Topic 606.

 

In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 606, Revenue Recognition, we will recognize revenue when persuasive evidence of a significant financing component exists in our consulting and product sales contracts. We examine and evaluate when our customers become liable to pay for goods and services; how much consideration is paid as compared to the cash selling price of the goods or services; and, the length of time between our performance and the receipt of payment.

 

Product Sales

Revenue from product and equipment sales, including delivery fees, is recognized when an order has been obtained from the customer, the price is fixed and determinable when the order is placed, the product is shipped, title has transferred and collectability is reasonably assured. Generally, our suppliers’ drop-ship orders to our clients with shipping-point or destination terms. For any shipments with destination terms, the Company defers revenue until delivery to the customer. Given the facts that (1) our customers exercise discretion in determining the timing of when they place their product order; and, (2) the price negotiated in our product sales contracts is fixed and determinable at the time the customer places the order, we are not of the opinion that our product sales indicate or involve any significant financing that would materially change the amount of revenue recognized under the contract, or would otherwise contain a significant financing component for us or the customer under FASB ASC Topic 606. During the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, sales returns were $51 and $36 respectively and comprised of a cancelled contract and product returns and replacement.

 

Consulting Services

We also generate revenues from professional services consulting agreements. These arrangements are generally entered into: (1) on an hourly basis for a fixed-fee; or, (2) on a contingent fee basis. Generally, we require a complete or partial prepayment or retainer prior to performing services.

 

For hourly based fixed fee service contracts, we utilize and rely upon the proportional performance method, which recognizes revenue as services are performed. Under this method, in order to determine the amount of revenue to be recognized, we calculate the amount of completed work in comparison to the total services to be provided under the arrangement or deliverable. We segregate upon entry into a contract any advances or retainers received from clients for fixed fee hourly services into a separate “Advances from Clients” account, and only recognize revenues as we incur and charge billable hours, and then deposit the funds earned into our operating account. Because our hourly fees for services are fixed and determinable and are only earned and recognized as revenue upon actual performance, we are of the opinion that such arrangements are not an indicator of a vendor or customer based significant financing, that would materially change the amount of revenue we recognize under the contract or would otherwise contain a significant financing component under FASB ASC Topic 606.

9

 

Occasionally, our fixed-fee hourly engagements are recognized under the completed performance method. Some fixed fee arrangements are for completion of a final deliverable or act which is significant to the arrangement as a whole. These engagements do not generally exceed a one-year term. If the performance is for a final deliverable or act, we recognize revenue under the completed performance method, in which revenue is recognized once the final act or deliverable is performed or delivered for a fixed fee. Revenue recognition is affected by a number of factors that change the estimated amount of work required to complete the deliverable, such as changes in scope, timing, awaiting notification of license award from local government, and the level of client involvement. Losses, if any, on fixed-fee engagements are recognized in the period in which the loss first becomes probable and reasonably estimable. FASB ASC Topic 606 provides a practical expedient to disregard the effects of a financing component if the period between payment and performance is one year or less. As, our fixed fee hourly engagements do not exceed one year, no significant customer-based financing is implicated under FASB ASC Topic 606. During the quarter ended September 30, 2018, and September 30, 2017, we have incurred no losses from fixed fee engagements that terminate prior to completion. We believe if an engagement terminates prior to completion, we can recover the costs incurred related to the services provided.

 

We occasionally enter into arrangements for which fixed and determinable revenues are contingent and agreed upon achieving a pre-determined deliverable or future outcome. Any contingent revenue for these arrangements is not recognized until the contingency is resolved and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Our arrangements with clients may include terms to deliver multiple services or deliverables. These contracts specifically identify the services to be provided with the corresponding deliverable. The value for each deliverable is determined based on the prices charged when each element is sold separately or by other vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) or estimates of stand-alone selling prices. Revenues are recognized in accordance with our accounting policies for the elements as described above (see Product Sales). The elements qualify for separation when the deliverables have value on a stand-alone basis and the value of the separate elements can be established by VSOE or an estimated selling price.

 

While assigning values and identifying separate elements requires judgment, selling prices of the separate elements are generally readily identifiable as fixed and determinable as we also sell those elements individually outside of a multiple services engagement. Contracts with multiple elements typically incorporate a fixed-fee or hourly pricing structure. Arrangements are typically terminable by either party upon sufficient notice and do not include provisions for refunds relating to services provided.

 

Reimbursable expenses, including those relating to travel, other out-of-pocket expenses and any third-party costs, are included as a component of revenues. Typically, an equivalent amount of reimbursable expenses is included in total direct client service costs. Reimbursable expenses related to time and materials and fixed-fee engagements are recognized as revenue in the period in which the expense is incurred and collectability is reasonably assured. Taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities are presented in the statement of operations on a net basis.

 

Costs of Revenues

 

The Company’s policy is to recognize costs of revenue in the same manner in conjunction with revenue recognition. Cost of revenue includes the costs directly attributable to revenue recognition and includes compensation and fees for services, travel and other expenses for services and costs of products and equipment. Selling, general and administrative expenses are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Advertising and Promotion Costs

 

Selling and Marketing costs are included as a component of selling and marketing expense and are expensed as incurred. During the three months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, these costs were and $75,826, and $72,115 respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, these costs were $202,905 and $149,419 respectively.

Shipping and Handling Costs

 

For product and equipment sales, shipping and handling costs are included as a component of cost of revenues.

 

StockBased Compensation

 

Restricted shares are awarded to employees and entitle the grantee to receive shares of common stock at the end of the established vesting period. The fair value of the grant is based on the stock price on the date of grant. The Company recognizes related compensation costs on a straightline basis over the requisite vesting period of the award. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, the Company had stockbased compensation expense of $73,742 and $401,809, respectively. Compensation expense for warrants and options is based on the fair value of the instruments on the grant date, which is determined using the BlackScholes valuation model.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company’s corporate status changed from an SCorporation, which it had been since inception, to a CCorporation during the year ended December 31, 2014. As provided in Section 1361 of the Internal Revenue Code, for income tax purposes, SCorporations are not subject to corporate income taxes; instead, the owners are taxed on their proportionate share of the SCorporation’s taxable income. Accordingly, we were not subject to income taxes for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. We recognize deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns in accordance with applicable accounting guidance for accounting for income taxes, using currently enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. We record a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, due to cumulative losses since our corporate status changed, we recorded a valuation allowance against our deferred tax asset that reduced our income tax benefit for the period to zero. As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, we had no liabilities related to federal or state income taxes and the carrying value of our deferred tax asset was zero.

 

Related Party Transactions

 

The Company follows FASB ASC subtopic 850-10, Related Party Disclosures, for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.

 

Pursuant to ASC 850-10-20, related parties include: a) affiliates of the Company; b) entities for which investments in their equity securities would be required, absent the election of the fair value option under the Fair Value Option Subsection of Section 825–10– 15, to be accounted for by the equity method by the investing entity; c) trusts for the benefit of employees, such as pension and profit sharing trusts that are managed by or under the trusteeship of management; d) principal owners of the Company; e) management of the Company; f) other parties with which the Company may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests; and g) other parties that can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties or that have an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

The Company reports net income (loss) per common share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share”. This statement requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the earnings per share computations. Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period and excludes the effects of any potentially dilutive securities. Diluted net income (loss) per share gives effect to any dilutive potential common stock outstanding during the period. The computation does not assume conversion, exercise or contingent exercise of securities that would have an antidilutive effect on earnings.

 

Due to the Company’s net losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, any potentially dilutive shares outstanding for these periods, respectively, were not presented in the EPS computations, as their effect would have been antidilutive.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed all the recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and it does not believe any of these pronouncements will have a material impact on the Company.

 

Reclassifications

Note 9. Stockbased Compensation

 

Restricted Shares

 

From time to time, the Company grants certain employees restricted shares of its common stock to provide further compensation in lieu of wages and to align the employee’s interests with the interests of its stockholders. Because vesting is based on continued employment, these equitybased incentives are also intended to attract, retain and motivate personnel upon whose judgment, initiative and effort the Company’s success is largely dependent.

The grant date fair value of the warrants, as calculated based on the BlackScholes valuation model, was $0.59 per share.

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.

We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those estimates.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, total revenues were $771,302 and $2,560,251 respectively. Consulting service revenues were $89,500 or 28.5% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2018, versus $916,676, or 92.6% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, consulting services revenues were $272,192 or 35.3% of total revenues and $2,331,735 or 91.1% of total revenues. Our product and equipment revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $224,136 or 71.5% of total revenues, versus $73,637 or 7.4% of total revenues for three months ended September 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our product and equipment revenues were $499,110 and $228,516, respectively. The increase in products and equipment revenue was attributed to increased client orders with the company experiencing spikes in product revenues during facility design and buildouts.

15

Costs of Revenues

 

Costs of revenues primarily consist of labor, travel, cost of equipment and soil sold, and other costs directly attributable to providing services or products. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, our total costs of revenues were $165,103, or 52.6% of total revenues. This compares to total costs of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017 of $163,501 or 16.5% of total revenues. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, total costs of revenues were $387,714 as compared to $443,782 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 consulting related costs were $105,471, or 13.7% of total revenue, as compared to costs of $273,753, or 10.7% of revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Gross Profit

 

Total gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $148,533 comprised of consulting services gross profit of $65,801 and products and equipment gross profit of $82,732. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, our total gross profit was $826,812 comprised of consulting services gross profit of $791,999 and product and equipment gross profit of $34,813. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our total gross profit was $383,588 and $2,116,469 respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 consulting services gross profit was $166,721 and $2,057,982 respectively, and our products and equipment gross profit was $216,867 and $58,487 respectively. The $1,732,881 decrease of our total gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017, was due to a reduction of our consulting services revenue which was $272,192 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 versus $2,331,735 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease reflects fewer states enacting legislation during the period legalizing cannabis. The increase in products and equipment gross profit was due to the Company expanding its product sales to existing clients during the period. As a percentage of total revenues, gross profit was 49.7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to 82.7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses were $304,751, or 97.2% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $399,147, or 40.3% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our total operating expenses $874,283 and $1,099,058 respectively. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in general and administrative expenses and reduced labor allocations transferred out of general and administrative expenses to direct project costs (cost of revenues) for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as compared to September 30, 2017.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was expense of $46,941 as compared with expense of $109,844 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. In comparison, other income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was an expense of $88,406 while September 30, 2017 had an expense of $575,764. The decrease was primarily due to $328,067 in stock based compensation and $110,000 in settlement expense that was incurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

Net Income (Loss)

 

As a result of the factors discussed above, net (loss) for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $(579,101) or (75.1) % of total revenues for the period, as compared to net income of $441,647, or 17.3 % of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. For the three months ended September 30, 2018 net income (loss) was $(203,159) or (64.8)% of total revenue for the period, and for September 30, 2018 there was net income of $317,821.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2018, our primary internal sources of liquidity were our working capital, which included cash and cash equivalents of $1,243,886 and accounts receivable of $109,864. Additionally, considering that our fixed overhead costs are low, we have the ability to issue stock to compensate employees and management, and the level of future revenue we expect to generate from executed client contracts, we believe our liquidity and capital resources to be adequate to fund our operational and general and administrative expenses for at least the next 12 months without needing to raise additional debt or equity funding. There is no guarantee we will have the ability to raise additional capital as needed through external equity financing transactions if required.

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was a use of $(404,201), consisting of increases in accrued and current liability of $22,271 and accounts payable of $38,372.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, investing activities were a use of cash of $0 and ($5,000) respectively.

16

 

Financing Activities

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the net cash from financing activities was $0 and $602,693 respectively.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, we did not have any offbalance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

 

NonGAAP Financial Measures

 

We use Adjusted EBITA, a nonGAAP metric, to monitor our overall business performance. We define Adjusted EBITA as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, stockbased compensation and certain nonrecurring expenses, which to date have been limited to costs associated with the Reverse Merger. We believe that such adjustments to arrive at Adjusted EBITA provides us with a more comparable measure for managing our business. We also believe that it is a useful measure for securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of our Company.

 

A reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBDITA is provided below.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE & QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We are a smaller reporting Company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information required under this item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Management of the Company is responsible for maintaining disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that financial information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the timeframes specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, consistent with Items 307 and 308 of Regulation SK.

 

In addition, the disclosure controls and procedures must ensure that such financial information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required financial and other required disclosures.

 

As of September 30, 2018, an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13(a)-15(e) and 15(d)-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and other persons carrying out similar functions for the Company. Based on the evaluation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, the Company concluded that during the period covered by this report, such disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

The Company continues to employ and refine a structure in which critical accounting policies, issues and estimates are identified, and together with other complex areas, are subject to multiple reviews by accounting personnel. In addition, the Company evaluates and assesses its internal controls and procedures regarding its financial reporting, utilizing standards incorporating applicable portions of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s 2009 Guidance for Smaller Public Companies in Auditing Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting as necessary and on an ongoing basis.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting cannot provide absolute assurance of the prevention or detection of misstatements.

The Company had no reportable changes to its internal controls over financial reporting for the period covered by this report.

 

The Company will continually enhance and test its internal controls over financial reporting on a continuing basis. Additionally, the Company’s management, under the control of its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, will increase its review of its disclosure controls and procedures on an ongoing basis. Finally, the Company plans to designate, in conjunction with its Chief Financial Officer, individuals responsible for identifying reportable developments and the process for resolving compliance issues related to them. The Company believes these actions will focus necessary attention and resources in its internal accounting functions.
