AMERICAN CANNABIS COMPANY, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017 and 2016
(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 de-criminalized 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 non-exclusive customer products commonly used in the industry. American Cannabis Company, Inc. is a publicly listed company quoted on the OTCQB 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 long-lived 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 S-X.  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.

 

Stock-Based 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 straight-line basis over the requisite vesting period of the award. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company had recognized stock-based compensation expense of $401,809.

 

Warrants

As of June 30, 2017, and December 31, 2016, the Company had issued and outstanding warrants to the Company’s independent board member to purchase up to two hundred and fifty thousand (250,000) shares of common stock at an exercise price of sixty-three cents ($0.63) per share were outstanding, exercisable within five (5) years of the date of issuance on November 19, 2014. The warrants were fully-vested as of November 19, 2014, and expire on November 19, 2019. The Company has no issued warrants for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016.

 

Options

In addition to the warrants as described above, the Company’s independent board member shall be eligible to receive options for 400,000 shares of common stock under the Company’s incentive plan, as and when duly approved by the Board of Directors. No options have been issued for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2017.

ITEM 2.MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The statements contained in this report that are not statements of historical fact, including without limitation, statements containing the words “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates” and similar words, constitute forward-looking statements that are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. From time to time we may make other forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements are subject to an inherent risk that actual results may materially differ as a result of many factors, including the risks discussed from time to time in this report, including the risks described under “Risk Factors” in any filings we have made with the SEC.

 

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. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. On an on-going basis, we evaluate these estimates, including those related to useful lives of real estate assets, cost reimbursement income, bad debts, impairment, net lease intangibles, contingencies and litigation. 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.

On May 15, 2014, BIMI entered into a merger agreement (“the Merger Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding American Cannabis Consulting while simultaneously disposing of 100% of the issued share capital EsoTV (“the Separation Agreement”). Both the merger with American Cannabis Consulting and disposal of EsoTV were completed on September 29, 2014. BIMI subsequently amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to American Cannabis Company, Inc. On October 10, 2014, American Cannabis Company, Inc changed its stock symbol from BIMI to AMMJ.

The foregoing descriptions of the Merger Agreement and Separation Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the terms of such agreements, which are filed as exhibits to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on October 3, 2014.

 

Immediately following the completion of the Merger Agreement, former shareholders of American Cannabis Consulting owned 31,710,628 shares of American Cannabis Company, Inc.’s common stock representing 78.4% of American Cannabis Company, Inc.’s issued and outstanding share capital. Accordingly, American Cannabis Consulting was deemed to have been the accounting acquirer in a Reverse Merger which resulted in a recapitalization of the Company. Consequently, the Company’s consolidated financial statements reflect the results of American Cannabis Consulting since Inception (March 5, 2013) and of American Cannabis Company, Inc. (formerly BIMI) since September 29, 2014.

Revenues 

Total revenues were $952,780 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to $468,745 for the three months ended June 30, 2016, an increase of $509,132. Consulting service revenues increased for the three months ended June 30, 2017, $841,762 or 88.3% of total revenues, versus $211,863 or 47.8% of total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016. We experienced a decrease in our product and equipment revenues as amounts for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were $111,018 or 11.7% of total revenues, versus $231,785 or 52.2% of total revenues for three months ended June 30, 2016. This decrease was attributed to the lifecycle of client contracts with the company experiencing spikes in product revenues during facility design and build-outs. The company was not performing any facility build-outs for the three months ended June 30, 2017, while two facility build-outs were in-progress during the three months ended June 30, 2016.

 

Costs of Revenues 

Costs of revenues primarily consist of labor, travel, and other costs directly attributable to providing services or products. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, our total costs of revenues were $133,397, or 14.0% of total revenues. This compares to total costs of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016 of $197,126 or 44.4% of total revenues. The decrease in costs of revenues of $63,729 was primarily due to the lower profit margins resulting from the sale of equipment as compared to consulting revenue. For the three months ended June 30, 2017, consulting-related costs were $87,251, or 9.2% of total revenue, as compared to costs of $51,278, or 11.6% of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016. Costs associated with products and equipment were $46,146, or 4.8% of total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to $145,858, or 32.9% of total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016. As a percentage of revenues, the decrease was attributed to the lifecycle of client contracts with the company experiencing spikes in product revenues during design and facility build-outs. The company was not performing any design and facility build-outs for the three months ended June 30, 2017, while two facility build-outs were in-progress during the three months ended June 30, 2016.

This compares to total gross profit of $246,522 for the three months ended June 30, 2016, comprised of consulting services gross profit of $160,585 and products and equipment gross profit of $85,937. The increase of $593,926 for consulting services gross profit was due to growth in our new consulting client base and volume of operations. As a percentage of total revenues, gross profit was 86.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2017 as compared to 55.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

Revenues 

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2017, our primary internal sources of liquidity were our working capital, which included cash and cash equivalents of $1,675,808 and accounts receivable of $193,538. We also have the ability to raise additional capital as needed through external equity financing transactions. 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 in by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was a inflow of $322,077 consisting of net gain of $123,826, increases in accounts payable of $17,911 due to inventory product purchases, an decrease in advances from clients $210,024 which related to recognition of revenues from advances received during 2016 and inventory of $16,974 based on product purchases. Net cash used in operating activities for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was a use of $464,529, consisting of net loss of $98,332, decreases in accounts payable of $146,491 due to inventory product purchases, an increase in advances from clients $105,416 which related to recognition of revenues from advances received during 2016 and inventory of $293 based on product purchases. 

 

Investing Activities

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, investing activities were a use of cash of $0 and ($1,662) respectively.

 

Financing Activities

For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the net cash from financing activities was $602,693 and $139,065 respectively.  During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company received proceeds of $602,693 from the proceeds from the issuance of convertible notes payable and from the sale of common stock.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of June 30, 2017, and December 31, 2016, we did not have any off-balance 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.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

We use Adjusted EBITA, a non-GAAP 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, stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring expenses. 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 EBITA 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 S-K.

 

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 June 30, 2017, 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 not 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 on-going basis.

 

16 

 

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting cannot provide absolute assurance of the prevention or detection of misstatements. In addition, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

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.
