SPYR, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Three Months Ended March 31, 2016 and 2015

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. Accordingly, these interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 filed with the SEC. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015 included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date, but does not include all disclosures, including notes, required by GAAP.

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary to fairly present the Company's financial position and results of operations for the interim periods reflected. Except as noted, all adjustments contained herein are of a normal recurring nature. Results of operations for the fiscal periods presented herein are not necessarily indicative of fiscal year-end results.

 

Organization

 

The Company was incorporated as Conceptualistics, Inc. on January 6, 1988 in Delaware. Subsequent to its incorporation, the Company changed its name to Eat at Joe’s, Ltd. In February 2015, the Company changed its name to SPYR, Inc. and adopted a new ticker symbol “SPYR” effective March 12, 2015.

 

Nature of Business

 

The primary focus of SPYR, Inc. (the “Company”) is to act as a holding company and develop a portfolio of profitable subsidiaries, not limited by any particular industry or business.

 

We currently own three operating subsidiaries, one in the restaurant industry and two in the digital technology industry, each having their own particular focus.

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiaries, SPYR APPS, LLC and SPYR APPS Oy, we operate our mobile games and applications business. The focus of the SPYR APPS subsidiaries is the development and publication of our own mobile games as well as the publication of games developed by third-party developers.

 

Through our other wholly owned subsidiary, E.A.J.: PHL Airport, Inc., we own and operate the restaurant “Eat at Joe’s” ®, which is located in the Philadelphia International Airport and has been in operations since 1997.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of SPYR, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation, SPYR APPS, LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company, SPYR APPS, Oy, a Finnish Limited Liability Company, and E.A.J Market East, Inc. a Nevada corporation (Dormant). Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company generates revenues from its wholly owned subsidiaries, which operate separate and distinct businesses. The following is a summary of our revenue recognition policies.

 

 6 

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiary SPYR APPS, LLC, we develop, publish and co-publish mobile games, and then generate revenue through those games by way of advertising and in-app purchases. The Company recognizes revenue using four basic criteria that must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured, which is typically after receipt of payment and delivery. The Company’s dedicated mobile gaming applications can be downloaded through the app stores maintained by Apple and Google. The Company’s cross platform gaming application which can be played on personal computers, Facebook and mobile devices, can be downloaded from the internet and Facebook as well as through the app stores maintained by Apple, Google and Amazon. The Company receives revenue from sale of advertising provided with games and through in-app purchases. The Company also receives revenue from publishing agreements entered into during 2015 for one mobile game and one cross platform game.

 

Though our wholly owned subsidiary E.A.J.: PHL, Airport, Inc. we generate revenue from the sale of food and beverage products through our restaurant. Revenue from the restaurant is recognized upon sale to a customer and receipt of payment.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under the provisions of ASC 740 “Accounting for Income Taxes,” which requires a company to first determine whether it is more likely than not (which is defined as a likelihood of more than fifty percent) that a tax position will be sustained based on its technical merits as of the reporting date, assuming that taxing authorities will examine the position and have full knowledge of all relevant information. A tax position that meets this more likely than not threshold is then measured and recognized at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than fifty percent likely to be realized upon effective settlement with a taxing authority.

 

Deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences related to temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for tax purposes at each year end, based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. A valuation allowance is recognized when, based on the weight of all available evidence, it is considered more likely than not that all, or some portion, of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company evaluates its valuation allowance requirements based on projected future operations. When circumstances change and cause a change in management's judgment about the recoverability of deferred tax assets, the impact of the change on the valuation is reflected in current income. Income tax expense is the sum of current income tax plus the change in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates and assumptions used by management affected impairment analysis for fixed assets, intangible assets, amounts of potential liabilities and valuation of issuance of equity securities. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company’s computation of earnings (loss) per share (EPS) includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is calculated by dividing the Company’s net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares during the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution, using the treasury stock method that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the net income (loss) of the Company. In computing diluted EPS, the treasury stock method assumes that outstanding options and warrants are exercised and the proceeds are used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. Shares of restricted stock are included in the basic weighted average number of common shares outstanding from the time they vest and are included in the calculation of diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding from the time they are granted.

 

The basic and fully diluted shares for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are the same because the inclusion of the potential shares (Non-vested Common – 241,667, Class A – 26,909,028, Class E – 696,767) would have had an anti-dilutive effect due to the Company generating a loss for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

 

 7 

 

The basic and fully diluted shares for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are the same because the inclusion of the potential shares (Non-vested Common – 458,333, Class A – 26,909,028, Class E – 161,394) would have had an anti-dilutive effect due to the Company generating a loss for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

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

 

The fair value of the Company's stock option and warrant grants is estimated using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing model, which uses certain assumptions related to risk-free interest rates, expected volatility, expected life of the stock options or warrants, and future dividends. Compensation expense is recorded based upon the value derived from the Black-Scholes Option Pricing model, and based on actual experience. The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes Option Pricing model could materially affect compensation expense recorded in future periods.

 

The Company also issues restricted shares of its common stock for share-based compensation programs to employees and non-employees. The Company measures the compensation cost with respect to restricted shares to employees based upon the estimated fair value at the date of the grant, and is recognized as expense over the period which an employee is required to provide services in exchange for the award. For non-employees, the Company measures the compensation cost with respect to restricted shares based upon the estimated fair value at the measurement date which is either a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company follows paragraph 825-10-50-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments and paragraph 820-10-35-37 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Paragraph 820-10-35-37”) to measure the fair value of its financial instruments. Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs.

 

The three (3) levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.

 

Level 2: Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.

 

Level 3: Pricing inputs that are generally observable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash and cash equivalents, inventory, prepaid expenses, and accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of those instruments.

 

The Company’s trading securities are measured at fair value using level 1 fair values.

Software Licensing Costs

 

Software licensing costs pertains to non-refundable payments made to independent gaming software developers pursuant to licensing agreements executed in 2015. The payments are intended to assist gaming software developers in the marketing and further development of two gaming software applications.

 

Software licensing costs were $90,000 and $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively and was reflected as part of Other General and Administrative Expenses on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

 

Capitalized Licensing Rights

 

Capitalized licensing rights represent fees paid to intellectual property rights holders for use of their trademarks, copyrights, software, technology, music or other intellectual property or proprietary rights in the development of our products. Depending upon the agreement with the rights holder, we may obtain the right to use the intellectual property in multiple products over a number of years, or alternatively, for a single product.

 

Significant management judgments and estimates are utilized in assessing the recoverability of capitalized costs. In evaluating the recoverability of capitalized costs, the assessment of expected product performance utilizes forecasted sales amounts and estimates of additional costs to be incurred. If revised forecasted or actual product sales are less than the originally forecasted amounts utilized in the initial recoverability analysis, the net realizable value may be lower than originally estimated in any given quarter, which could result in an impairment charge. Material differences may result in the amount and timing of expenses for any period if management makes different judgments or utilizes different estimates in evaluating these qualitative factors.

 

As of December 31, 2015, the Company capitalized $80,000 as a result of the acquisition of licensing rights for two gaming applications. The Company estimates that the two gaming applications will have an estimated life ranging from two to five years, which approximates the term of the respective licenses.

 

During the period ended March 31, 2016, the Company capitalized an additional $10,000 and amortized $7,500. As of March 31, 2016, the unamortized capitalized licensing rights amounted to $82,500.

 

Recent Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. ASU 2014-09 is a comprehensive revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP and replace it with a principle based approach for determining revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 will require that companies recognize revenue based on the value of transferred goods or services as they occur in the contract. The ASU also will require additional disclosure about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from customer contracts, including significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from costs incurred to obtain or fulfill a contract. ASU 2014-09 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted only in annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods therein. Entities will be able to transition to the standard either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of ASU 2014-09 on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires a lessee to record a right of use asset and a corresponding lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. ASU 2016-02 is effective for all interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-02 on the Company’s financial statements and disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company's present or future consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2 - TRADING SECURITIES

 

Trading securities are purchased with the intent of selling them in the short term. Trading securities are recorded at market value and the difference between market value and cost of the securities is recorded as an unrealized gain or loss in the statement of operations. Gains from the sales of such marketable securities will be utilized to fund payment of obligations and to provide working capital for operations and to finance future growth, including, but not limited to: conducting our ongoing business, conducting strategic business development, marketing analysis, due diligence investigations into possible acquisitions, and research and development and implementation of the Company’s business plans generally.

 

The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities. Trading securities are recorded at fair value based on quoted market price (level 1) on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period included in earnings.

 

Investments in securities are summarized as follows:

NOTE 4 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Legal Proceedings

 

We are involved in certain legal proceedings that arise from time to time in the ordinary course of our business. Except for income tax contingencies, we record accruals for contingencies to the extent that our management concludes that the occurrence is probable and that the related amounts of loss can be reasonably estimated. Legal expenses associated with the contingency are expensed as incurred. A material legal proceeding that is currently pending is as follows:

 

On October 14, 2015, the Company was named as a defendant in a case filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware case: Zakeni Limited v. SPYR, Inc., f/k/a Eat at Joe’s., Ltd. The suit relates to the Company’s issuance of its convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $1,500,000 in 1998. The plaintiff is seeking payment or conversion of said convertible debentures together with accrued interest and unspecified damages. The Company believes the claim is not a valid debt, is vigorously defending this lawsuit, and filed a motion to dismiss, which is pending before the Court. Based upon available information at this very early stage of litigation it is the opinion of management and belief of in-house counsel that the Company will obtain a favorable ruling and no amount will be awarded to the plaintiff in this action. Accordingly, Management believes the likelihood of material loss resulting from this lawsuit to be remote.

 

NOTE 5 – COMMON STOCK TRANSACTIONS

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,325,000 shares of common stock to employees with a total fair value of $199,512 for services rendered. The shares issued are non-refundable and deemed earned upon issuance. As a result, the Company expensed the entire $199,512 upon issuance. The shares issued were valued at the date of the respective agreements.

 11 

 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company issued an aggregate of 350,000 shares of restricted common stock to consultants with a total fair value of $52,500 for services rendered. The shares issued are non-refundable and deemed earned upon issuance. As a result, the Company expensed the entire $52,500 upon issuance. The shares issued were valued at the date of the respective agreements.

 

Common Stock with Vesting Terms:

 

In August 2015, the Company granted and issued 100,000 shares of its restricted common stock to an employee pursuant to an employment agreement. The 100,000 shares vest over a period of one year with a fair value of $37,000 at the date of grant.

 

In February 2015, the Company granted and issued 500,000 shares of its restricted common stock to a consultant pursuant to a consulting agreement. The 500,000 shares are forfeitable and are deemed earned upon completion of service over a period of twenty four months. The Company recognizes the fair value of these shares as they vest.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, 87,500 of these shares vested and as a result, the Company recognized compensation cost of $5,709. As of March 31, 2016, total unvested shares totaled 241,667 shares with unearned compensation costs of $42,542 which will be recognized in fiscal years 2016 and 2017.

 

The following table summarizes common stock with vesting terms activity:

 

          Weighted
          Average
    Number of     Grant Date
    Shares     Fair Value
Non-vested, December 31, 2015 329,167    $ 0.48

NOTE 7 – DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

On February 23, 2015 the Company entered into an agreement whereby, the Company issued an aggregate of 2.5 million shares of its restricted common stock valued at $1,700,000, in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding shares of Franklin Networks, Inc., a Tennessee corporation (“Franklin”), an internet company that began operations in September 2014. The acquisition of Franklin had been accounted for as a purchase and the operations of Franklin have been consolidated since the date of the acquisition. The $1.7 million purchase price was allocated based upon the fair value of the acquired assets which consists of intangible assets of $671,131, deferred tax liability of $117,741 and goodwill of $1,146,610, as determined by management with the assistance of an independent valuation firm.

 

 13 

 

 

On December 31, 2015, the Company and the former owners of Franklin, McGarrity, Palm and Pilgrim Consulting Services, Inc. agreed to unwind the agreement and return the original consideration exchanged in the contract. As a result, the Company recognized a loss of $1,638,536 due to the write off of the unamortized intangible assets, goodwill and deferred tax liability, reduced by the fair value of the 2.5 million shares of common stock returned to the Company amounting to $500,000 or a net amount of $1,138,536. In addition, the Company also recognized a loss from discontinued operations of $1,205,988 which includes stock-based compensation of $279,258.

 

In addition, during the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company incurred expenses of $4,494 related to Franklin. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, Franklin generated a gain from operations of $37,539. Pursuant to ASC 2014-08, Reporting of Discontinued Operations, the Company reported the gain (loss) from operations as a gain (loss) from discontinued operations in the accompanying statements of operations since the Company considered its decision to rescind the Franklin acquisition as a strategic shift that has a major effect in the Company’s operations and financial results.

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

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and supplementary data referred to in this Form 10-Q.

 

This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Such statements, which include statements concerning revenue sources and concentration, selling, general and administrative expenses and capital resources, are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, those discussed elsewhere in this Form 10-Q that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Unless otherwise expressly indicated, the information set forth in this Form 10-Q is as of March 31, 2016, and we undertake no duty to update this information.

 

Plan of Operations – SPYR, Inc. operates in two separate and distinct segments: Digital Media and Restaurant. The Digital Media segment includes developing, publishing, co-publishing and marketing mobile games and applications. The Restaurant segment includes owning and operating an “American Diner” theme restaurant called “Eat at Joe’s”®.

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiaries SPYR APPS, LLC and SPYR APPS Oy, we develop, publish and co-publish mobile games, and then generate revenue through those games by way of advertising and in-app purchases. Our primary focus is on the development and expansion of our mobile games and applications. We anticipate we will need to hire additional employees during 2016 to help with the development and marketing of existing and future games and application.

 

Though our wholly owned subsidiary E.A.J.: PHL, Airport, Inc. we generate revenue from the sale of food and beverage products through our theme restaurant located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We plan to maintain the restaurant operations as they currently exist and do not anticipate the hiring of new full-time employees or the need for additional funds to satisfy cash requirements for the restaurant operations.

 

The Company intends to utilize cash on hand to conduct its ongoing business, and to also conduct strategic business development, marketing analysis, due diligence investigations into possible acquisitions, and research and development and implementation of our business plans generally.

 

The Company may also decide to diversify, through acquisition or otherwise, in other unrelated business areas if opportunities present themselves.

Results of Operations - For the three months ended March 31, 2016 the Company had a loss from continuing operations of approximately $809,000 compared to income from continuing operations before income taxes of approximately $3,372,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. This change is due primarily to decreases in the amount of realized and unrealized gains on the sale of marketable securities of approximately $1,570,000, decreases in labor and related costs of approximately $233,000 and decreases in professional fees of approximately $992,000, partially offset by increases in rent of approximately $29,000, increases in depreciation and amortization of approximately $19,000, and increases in other general and administrative expenses of approximately $187,000.

 

More detailed explanation of the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 changes are included in the applicable segment discussions following.

 

Total Revenues - For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company’s total sales remained flat at approximately $332,000. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, revenues included approximately $35,000 in revenues from our Digital Media Mobile Games Publishing and Advertising segment and approximately $297,000 in restaurant revenues. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, all revenues were generated from our restaurant segment. Management plans to expand its mobile application and game development and monetization efforts and expects increased revenues in this segment in the coming months. We believe restaurant revenues will continue to fluctuate in the future as airport traffic fluctuates.

 

Costs and Expenses - Costs of sales, include the costs of food, beverage, and kitchen supplies and relates solely to our restaurant business.

 

The cost of labor decreased approximately $233,000 to $553,000 from $786,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. A portion of the decrease is due to $199,000 of restricted stock awards granted to executive officers recorded at fair value for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to approximately $634,000 in restricted stock awards granted to executive officers recorded at fair value for the three months ended March 31, 2015. This decrease is partially offset by an increase of $71,000 due to hiring additional employees for our digital media operations. Of this amount, approximately $62,000 was paid in cash and $9,000 was paid in restricted stock recorded at fair value. The remaining difference is attributed to hiring dates and changes in pay rates and the overall number of employees. The cost of labor is expected to increase in conjunction with expansion of the digital media operations.

 

 16 

 

 

The cost of rent increased approximately $29,000 from 2015 to 2016. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, E.A.J.: PHL, Airport, pays $14,000 per month basic rent plus percentage rent equal to 20% of gross revenues above $1,200,000 under the lease based on sales for the 12 month period from July to June of each year. Basic rent is a fixed cost and percentage rent is variable, so the total rent paid is expected to vary from year to year in conjunction with restaurant sales. Beginning May 1, 2015, the Company moved into its new corporate offices in Denver, Colorado and began recording lease expense of $5,487 per month pursuant to this lease agreement. On October 1, 2015, we added additional square footage that more than doubled our administrative office space in Denver and further increased our corporate rent expense to $11,846 per month.

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased by approximately $19,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. This is attributable to depreciation and amortization expenses on the purchase of office equipment, furniture and fixtures and leasehold improvements for the new corporate headquarters in Denver Colorado of approximately $231,000, new restaurant equipment of approximately $4,000, and amortization of our capitalized licensing rights of $7,500.

 

Professional fees decreased approximately $992,000 from approximately $1,211,000 in 2015 to approximately $219,000 in 2016. Professional fees during 2016 included $22,000 for investor and public relations, $49,000 for accounting and auditing services, $75,000 for consulting and professional fees related to our digital media segment, $20,000 for other professional service needs and 350,000 shares of restricted common stock issued to third parties for consulting services recorded at fair value of $53,000. Professional fees during 2015 included $54,000 for investor and public relations, $58,000 for accounting and auditing services, $38,000 for other professional service needs, and 2,500,000 shares of restricted common stock issued for consulting services and employee signing bonuses recorded at fair value of $1,061,000.

 

Other general and administrative expenses increased approximately $187,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. The increase can be attributed primarily to digital media marketing, which increased by approximately $75,000, research and development costs of approximately $90,000, and increases in various other general and administrative costs of $22,000.

 

The Company had unrealized gains on trading securities of approximately $100,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to unrealized losses of $1,123,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Unrealized gains and losses are the result of fluctuations in the quoted market price of the underlying securities at the respective reporting dates.

 

The Company realized gains from the sale of trading securities of approximately $49,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared to realized losses of approximately $298,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Realized gains and losses are the difference between the selling prices and purchase costs of the underlying securities.

 

As of December 31, 2015, the Company had deferred tax assets arising from net operating loss carry-forwards, unrealized losses on marketable securities, capital loss carry overs and deductible temporary differences of approximately $7,000,000. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company increased its net operating loss carry-forwards by approximately $796,000 and decreased it capital loss carry-overs by approximately $159,000.

 

Management believes it is more likely than not that forecasted income, together with future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences, will not be sufficient to fully recover the deferred tax assets and has established a 100% valuation allowance of $2,066,000 against these potential future tax benefits. The Company will continue to evaluate the realizability of deferred tax assets quarterly.

Results of Operations – For the three months ended March 31, 2016 the Restaurant segment had a net loss from continuing operations of approximately $58,000 compared to a net loss of approximately $61,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 This change is due primarily to a decrease in revenues of approximately $35,000 and a decrease in cost of sales of approximately $3,000 offset by a decrease in operating costs (general and administrative costs including depreciation and amortization) of approximately $35,000.

 

Revenues – For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Restaurant segment had sales of approximately $297,000 and $332,000, respectively, for a decrease of approximately $35,000 or 11%. We believe restaurant revenues will continue to fluctuate in the future as airport traffic fluctuates.

Costs of Sales – For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Restaurant segment had costs of sales of approximately $97,000 and $101,000, respectively, for a decrease of approximately $3,000 or 3%. Costs of sales include the costs of food, beverage, and kitchen.

 

General and Administrative Expenses – For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Restaurant segment had general and administrative expenses of approximately $238,000 compared to approximately $274,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

 

The decrease in revenue is attributed to changes in the timing and flow of airport traffic. The decrease in costs and expenses is attributed to personnel changes in restaurant management and employees leading to greater productivity, better price negotiation with suppliers and reduced product waste.

 

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

On February 23, 2015 the Company entered into an agreement whereby, the Company issued an aggregate of 2.5 million shares of its restricted common stock valued at $1,700,000, in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding shares of Franklin Networks, Inc., a Tennessee corporation (“Franklin”), an internet company that began operations in September 2014. The acquisition of Franklin had been accounted for as a purchase and the operations of Franklin have been consolidated since the date of the acquisition. The $1.7 million purchase price was allocated based upon the fair value of the acquired assets which consists of intangible assets of $671,131, deferred tax liability of $117,741 and goodwill of $1,146,610, as determined by management with the assistance of an independent valuation firm.

 

On December 31, 2015, the Company and the former owners of Franklin, McGarrity, Palm and Pilgrim Consulting Services, Inc. agreed to unwind the agreement and return the original consideration exchanged in the contract. As a result, the Company recognized a loss of $1,638,536 due to the write off of the unamortized intangible assets, goodwill and deferred tax liability, reduced by the fair value of the 2.5 million shares of common stock returned to the Company amounting to $500,000 or a net amount of $1,138,536. In addition, the Company also recognized a loss from discontinued operations of $1,205,988 which includes stock-based compensation of $279,258.

 

In addition, during the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company incurred expenses of $4,494 related to Franklin. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, Franklin generated a gain from operations of $37,539. The Company reported the gain (loss) from operations as a gain (loss) from discontinued operations in the accompanying statements of operations since the Company considered its decision to rescind the Franklin acquisition as a strategic shift that has a major effect in the Company’s operations and financial results.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

The Company has generated a net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2016 of approximately $809,000. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had current assets of approximately $6,845,000, which included cash and cash equivalents of approximately $5,890,000, and trading securities of approximately $794,000. While the Company believes it has sufficient cash and cash equivalents to carry out its operating plans for the next twelve to twenty-four months, there can be no assurance the Company will be able to successfully execute its plans at the anticipated level or that additional debt or equity financing will not be needed, or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company has met its capital requirements through a combination of collection of revenues, the sale of its trading securities, and utilization of cash reserves.

 

Operating Activities - For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company used cash in operating activities of $643,100. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company used cash in operating activities of $469,430. This is due primarily to our expansion efforts into the digital media publishing, advertising and gaming industry, the addition of new management and operations personnel and the resulting increases in operating expenses.

 

Investing Activities - During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company used $510,000 in cash to purchase trading securities, received $189,467 in cash proceeds from sales of trading securities and used cash of $40,510 for the purchase of property plant and equipment.

Financing Activities - During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company did not engage in any financing activities.

 

After the completion of its expansion plans, the Company expects future development and expansion will be financed through cash flows from operations and other forms of financing such as the sale of additional equity and debt securities, capital leases and other credit facilities. There are no assurances that such financing will be available on terms acceptable or favorable to the Company.

 

Government Regulations - The Company is subject to all pertinent Federal, State, and Local laws governing its business. Each subsidiary is subject to licensing and regulation by a number of authorities in its State or municipality. These may include health, safety, and fire regulations. The Company's operations are also subject to Federal and State minimum wage laws governing such matters as working conditions, overtime and tip credits.

 

Critical Accounting Policies 

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of 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 and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements describes the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements. Estimates are used for, but not limited to, contingencies and taxes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The following critical accounting policies are impacted significantly by judgments, assumptions, and estimates used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Loss Contingencies

 

The Company is subject to various loss contingencies arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company considers the likelihood of loss or impairment of an asset or the incurrence of a liability, as well as its ability to reasonably estimate the amount of loss in determining loss contingencies. An estimated loss contingency is accrued when management concludes that it is probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company regularly evaluates current information available to us to determine whether such accruals should be adjusted.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets (future tax benefits) and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the book carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. The deferred tax assets and liabilities represent the expected future tax return consequences of those differences, which are expected to be either deductible or taxable when the assets and liabilities are recovered or settled.

 

Investments

 

The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities. Trading securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period included in earnings. Gains from the sales of such marketable securities are utilized to fund our ongoing business, and to also conduct strategic business development, marketing analysis, due diligence investigations into possible acquisitions, and research and development and implementation of our business plans generally.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

 20 

 

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 March 31, 2016, 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 on-going basis.

 

Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

 

The Company has 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. 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.
