ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

General

 

The primary focus of the business of SPYR, Inc. (the “Company”) is digital publishing & advertising and the development of mobile applications & games. The Company also owns and operates an “American Diner” theme restaurant called “Eat at Joe’s (R).”

 

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company changed the focus of its business from that of a restaurant developer, owner and operator to digital publishing & advertising and the development of mobile applications & games. In doing so, the Company put new management in place, acquired Franklin Networks, Inc. (“Franklin”) and changed its name from Eat at Joe’s, Ltd. to SPYR, Inc. Franklin is primarily engaged in the business of monetizing various digital and internet media platforms. Through Franklin, the Company owns and monetizes eight websites catering to a broad audience and covering a wide range of topics, including food, fitness, nutrition, beauty, fashion, parenting and travel. The Company is dedicated to identifying innovative digital ideas and projects that will provide consistent returns for investors who embrace the promise of the growing digital frontier.

 

Management is working to effectively combine strategic thinking, creative talent, and technological savvy and strict corporate governance in order to uniquely position the Company to capitalize on a wide variety of exciting digital opportunities without being limited by any single industry or platform. Operating under the belief that anything worth doing is worth doing right, the Company is backed by strong and experienced leaders that have a deep knowledge of digital trends and unmatched business acumen.

 

The Company also owns and operates one theme restaurant located in the Philadelphia International Airport.

 

The Company’s common stock is traded on the National Association of Security Dealers, Inc. (the “NASD’s”) OTC Bulletin Board Under the symbol “SPYR.”

 

History

 

The Company was incorporated as Conceptualistics, Inc., on January 6, 1988, in Delaware as a wholly owned subsidiary of Halter Venture Corporation ("HVC"), a publicly-owned corporation (now known as Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino, Inc.). In 1988, HVC divested itself of approximately 14% of its holdings in the Company by distributing 1,777,000 shares of the issued and outstanding stock of the Company to its shareholders. The then majority shareholder of HVC became the majority shareholder of the Company. Its authorized capital stock is 50,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share.

 

During the period from September 30, 1988 to March 1, 1990, the Company remained in the development stage while attempting to enter the mining industry. The Company was unsuccessful in this start up effort and all activity ceased during 1992 as a result of foreclosure on various loans in default and/or abandonment of all assets. Subsequently, the Company did not engage in any business activities up to January, 1997.

 

On January 1, 1997, the Shareholders adopted a plan of reorganization and merger between the Company and E. A. J. Holding Corp. Inc. (“Hold”) to be effective on or before January 31, 1997. Under the plan, the Company acquired all the issued and outstanding shares of “Hold,” a Delaware corporation making “Hold” a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company for 5,505,000 common shares of the Company. Since that time “Hold” has been dissolved.

 

On December 16, 2014, the Company amended it articles of incorporation and changed its domicile to Nevada.

 

On February 23, 2015 the Company entered into a material definitive agreement whereby, the Company issued an aggregate of 2.5 million shares of the its restricted common stock valued at $1,700,000, in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding shares of Franklin. By virtue of the agreement, the Company acquired the assets and business of Franklin including, but not limited to: employment contracts, consulting contracts, customer lists, customer relationships, trade secrets, trade designs, technical expertise, know how, proposals, internet web domains, internet web sites, trade names, and other intellectual property, and contractual relationships with Ad Service providers.

In February 2015, pursuant to the approval of the Company’s Board of Directors and shareholders, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name from Eat at Joe’s, Ltd. to SPYR, Inc. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) processed the Company’s name change and assigned the new ticker symbol “SPYR” effective March 12, 2015.

 

The Company has the following wholly owned subsidiaries:

 

·E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc. a Pennsylvania corporation;
·E.A.J. Market East, Inc., a Nevada corporation;
·E.A.J. MO, Inc., a Nevada corporation; and
·Franklin Networks, Inc., a Tennessee corporation.

 

Each of the E.A.J. subsidiaries was organized to operate a single restaurant. The Company presently owns and operates one theme restaurant located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, operated under the subsidiary E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc. The other two “E.A.J.” subsidiaries are dormant.

 

Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Franklin, the Company currently owns and monetizes eight websites catering to a broad audience and covering a wide range of topics, including food, fitness, nutrition, beauty, fashion, parenting and travel. The Company is dedicated to identifying the innovative digital ideas and projects that will provide consistent returns for investors who embrace the promise of the growing digital frontier.

 

All administrative activities of the Company have been conducted by corporate officers from either their home or shared business offices located at 670 White Plains Road, Suite 120, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Beginning May 2015, administrative activities will be conducted from the Company’s new corporate headquarters located at 4643 South Ulster Street, Suite 1510, Denver, Colorado.

 

OPERATING LOSSES

 

The Company has incurred net losses from operations of approximately $4,190,000 and $58,000 for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Such operating losses reflect developmental and other administrative costs for 2014 and 2013. The Company expects to incur losses in the near future until profitability is achieved. The Company’s operations are subject to numerous risks associated with establishing any new business, including unforeseen expenses, delays and complications. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve or sustain profitable operations.

 

FUTURE CAPITAL NEEDS AND UNCERTAINTY OF ADDITIONAL FUNDING

 

Revenues are not yet sufficient to support the Company’s operating expenses and are not expected to reach such levels until the Company implements a plan of expansion. The Company may seek additional financing in the future. There can be no assurance that such financing will be available at all or available on terms acceptable to the Company.

 

GOVERNMENT REGULATION

 

The Company is subject to all pertinent Federal, State, and Local laws governing its business. Each Eat at Joe’s 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.

 

COMPETITION

 

The Company faces competition from a wide variety of restaurants and participants in the digital media industry, many of which have substantially greater financial, marketing and technological resources than the Company.

 

EMPLOYEES

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company had approximately 10 employees, none of whom is represented by a labor union.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

RISK OF LOW-PRICED STOCKS

 

Rules 15g-1 through 15g-9 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) impose sales practice and disclosure requirements on certain brokers and dealers who engage in certain transactions involving “a penny stock.”

 

Currently, the Company’s common stock is considered a penny stock for purposes of the Exchange Act. The additional sales practice and disclosure requirements imposed on certain brokers and dealers could impede the sale of the Company’s Common Stock in the secondary market. In addition, the market liquidity for the Company’s securities may be severely adversely affected, with concomitant adverse effects on the price of the Company’s securities.

 

Under the penny stock regulations, a broker or dealer selling penny stock to anyone other than an established customer or “accredited investor” (generally, an individual with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual incomes exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 together with his or her spouse) must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and must receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to sale, unless the broker or dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt. In addition, the penny stock regulations require the broker or dealer to deliver, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) relating to the penny stock market, unless the broker or dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt. A broker or dealer is also required to disclose commissions payable to the broker or dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the Securities. In addition, a broker or dealer is required to send monthly statements disclosing recent price information with respect to the penny stock held in a customer’s account and information with respect to the limited market in penny stocks.

 

LACK OF TRADEMARK AND PATENT PROTECTION

 

The Company relies on a combination of trade secret, copyright and trademark law, nondisclosure agreements and technical security measures to protect its products. Notwithstanding these safeguards, it is possible for competitors of the company to obtain its trade secrets and to imitate its products. Furthermore, others may independently develop products similar or superior to those developed or planned by the Company.

 

ITEM 1B. UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

 

All administrative activities of the Company have been conducted by corporate officers from our business office located at 670 White Plains Road, Suite 120, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Beginning May 2015, administrative activities will be conducted from the Company’s new headquarters located at 4643 South Ulster Street, Suite 1510, Denver, Colorado.

 

The Company leases approximately 2,314 square feet at 4643 South Ulster Street, Denver, Colorado pursuant to a lease dated January 31, 2015. The lease period will commence upon substantial completion of the tenant improvements which is estimated to be May 1, 2015 and expires July 31, 2020. Under the lease, the Company will pay annual base rent on an escalating scale ranging from $63,635 to $68,263.

 

The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc. leases approximately 845 square feet in the Philadelphia Airport, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania pursuant to a lease dated July 6, 2010. E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc. pays $14,000 per month basic rent plus 20% of gross revenues above $1,200,000 under the lease that expires April 30, 2017.

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Plan of Operations - SPYR, Inc. intends to maintain its restaurant operations as they currently exist and does not anticipate the hiring of new full-time employees or the need for additional funds to satisfy cash requirements for the restaurant operation.

 

The Company intends to utilize funds generated from available 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. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Franklin, the Company plans to expand its internet and digital holdings and operations by exploring opportunities for additional acquisitions in the digital media realm, including additional websites to expand its digital publishing presence, and entering the areas of mobile application and game development, all of which will be used to support our digital advertising and monetization efforts.

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

 

COMPARISON OF 2014 TO 2013

 

Results of Operations - For the year ended December 31, 2014 the Company had income before income taxes of approximately $3,231,000 compared to a loss of approximately $1,201,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013. This change is due primarily to realized and unrealized gains on the sale of marketable securities of approximately $7,996,000 and increased general and administrative expenses of approximately $4,196,000.

 

Total Revenues - For the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company had total sales of approximately $1,451,000 and $1,319,000, respectively, for an increase of approximately $132,000 or 10%. Management believes that restaurant revenues will continue to fluctuate in the future as airport traffic fluctuates.

 

Costs and Expenses - Costs of revenues, which include the costs of food, beverage, and kitchen supplies increased approximately 1% as a percentage of sales for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to the year ended December 31, 2013. This increase is attributed to increasing costs of certain food items.

 

The cost of labor stayed relatively flat increasing approximately $1,000 to $333,000 from $332,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to the year ended December 31, 2013. The cost of labor is expected to increase in 2015 as a result of administrative compensation agreements beginning February 1, 2015.

 

The cost of rent increased approximately 2% as a percentage of sales from 2013 to 2014. 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. Rent expense for 2015 will increase by approximately $27,000, due to the additional lease for administrative offices in Denver, Colorado.

 

General and administrative expenses increased approximately $4,196,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase can be attributed primarily to marketing and promotional expenses and professional fees. During 4th quarter 2014 the Company spent approximately $2,261,000 in marketing and promotional fees for a company awareness campaign. The marketing fees were paid to a company owned by Mark McGarrity, who subsequently became a minority shareholder and Chief Information Officer of the Company. The Company’s professional fees increased by approximately $1,848,000 of which, $1,372,500 is due to employment agreement signing bonuses to hire two executive officers and $475,500 is for legal fees paid pursuant to the Company’s contractual duties to reimburse expenses and legal fees to officers and directors for informal legal inquiries that the Company determined to be subject to the Company’s indemnification responsibilities under Article VIII of its By-Laws.

 

Interest expense increased approximately $51,000 from $536,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013 to $587,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014. This increase is due to accrued interest on notes payable to related parties. The notes payable were settled in full as of December 31, 2014 and management does not anticipate further borrowing during 2015.

 

The Company had unrealized gains on trading securities of approximately $2,007,000 as of December 31, 2014 compared to unrealized losses of $1,726,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013. Unrealized gains and losses are the result of fluctuations in the quoted market price of the underlying securities.

 

The Company realized gains from the sale of marketable securities of approximately $5,989,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to realized gains of approximately $1,118,000 for the year ended December 31, 2013. Realized gains and losses are the difference between the selling prices and purchase costs of the underlying securities.

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company had deferred tax assets arising from net operating loss carry-forwards, unrealized losses on marketable securities and deductible temporary differences of approximately $2,700,000 compared to approximately $4,900,000 in deferred tax assets at December 31, 2013. During 2014, the Company used approximately $1,700,000 of its net operating loss carry-forwards and $500,000 in deductible temporary differences.

 

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 $1,068,000 against these potential future tax benefits.

 

The provision for income taxes for 2014 and 2013 was $1,040,000 and $179,000, respectively and reflects the establishment of the valuation allowance and removal of deferred tax assets from the December 31, 2014 consolidated balance sheet. The Company will continue to evaluate the realizability of deferred tax assets quarterly.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

The Company has generated income before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2014 of approximately $3,231,000 and it had a loss from operations of approximately $4,190,000. As of December 31, 2014, the Company had current assets of approximately $13,101,000, which included cash and cash equivalents of approximately $6,994,000, and marketable securities of approximately $6,027,000. While the Company believes it has sufficient cash and cash equivalents to carryout is 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.

 

8
 

The Company has met its capital requirements through the sale of its common stock, convertible preferred stock, convertible debentures, marketable securities and borrowings on related party notes payable.

 

Since the Company's re-activation in January 1997, the Company's principal capital requirements have been the funding of: (i) the development of the Company and its 1950's diner style concept; (ii) the construction of its existing units and the acquisition of the furniture, fixtures and equipment therein; and (iii) towards the development of additional units.

 

Operating Activities - For the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company used cash for operating activities of $2,860,437. For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company generated cash from operating activities of $7,889.

 

Investing Activities - During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company received $8,579,373 in cash proceeds from sales of marketable securities and used cash of $1,948,285 for the purchase of marketable securities. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company received $5,365,534 in cash proceeds from sales of marketable securities and used cash of $3,665,612 for the purchase of marketable securities and issued notes payable to related parties to acquire marketable securities valued at $2,605,218. As of December 31, 2014, the Company owns marketable securities valued at $6,026,780.

 

Financing Activities - During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company entered into two separate stock purchase agreements completing sales of its restricted common shares to two private accredited investors. The Company sold a total of 4,000,000 shares of restricted common stock at a price of $0.40 per share for an aggregate amount of $1,600,000 received by the Company. In addition, the Company settled notes payable and accrued interest due to related parties totaling $11,032,297. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the Company issued 107,636 shares of its newly created Class A Preferred Stock in settlement of $10,763,611 in debt and accrued interest and $268,686 in accrued interest was forgiven. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company made cash repayment of $460,000 on notes payable to related parties.

 

After the completion of its expansion plans, the Company expects future development and expansion will be financed through cash flow 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 Eat at Joe's 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 - 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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held for an indefinite period of time are classified as available-for-sale securities. Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period excluded from earnings and recorded net of tax as a component of other comprehensive income. 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.

Recently Enacted and Proposed Regulatory Changes - Recently enacted and proposed changes in the laws and regulations affecting public companies, including the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and rules proposed by the SEC and NASDAQ could cause the Company to incur increased costs as we evaluate the implications of new rules and respond to new requirements. The new rules could make it more difficult for the Company to obtain certain types of insurance, including directors and officers liability insurance, and the Company may be forced to accept reduced policy limits and coverage or incur substantially higher costs to obtain the same or similar coverage. The impact of these events could also make it more difficult for the Company to attract and retain qualified persons to serve on the Company's board of directors, or as executive officers. The Company is presently evaluating and monitoring developments with respect to these new and proposed rules, and it cannot predict or estimate the amount of the additional costs it may incur or the timing of such costs.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders

SPYR, Inc. and Subsidiaries (formerly Eat At Joe’s, Ltd.)

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of SPYR, Inc. and Subsidiaries (formerly Eat at Joe’s, Ltd.) (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2014 and the related consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income, stockholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2014. The Company's management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate under the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of SPYR, Inc. and Subsidiaries (formerly Eat at Joe’s, Ltd.) as of December 31, 2014 and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

SPYR, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES (FORMERLY EAT AT JOE’S, LTD.)

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

YEARS ENDING DECEMBER 31, 2014 AND 2013

 

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of accounting policies for SPYR, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) is presented to assist in understanding the Company's financial statements. The accounting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

Organization

 

The Company was incorporated as Conceptualistics, Inc. on January 6, 1988 in Delaware as a wholly owned subsidiary of Halter Venture Corporation ("HVC"), a publicly-owned corporation (now known as Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino, Inc.). In 1988, HVC divested itself of approximately 14% of its holdings in the Company by distributing 1,777,000 shares of the issued and outstanding stock of the Company to its shareholders. The then majority shareholder of HVC became the majority shareholder of the Company. Its authorized capital stock is 50,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share.

 

During the period from September 30, 1988 to March 1, 1990, the Company remained in the development stage while attempting to enter the mining industry. The Company was unsuccessful in this start up effort and all activity ceased during 1992 as a result of foreclosure on various loans in default and/or abandonment of all assets. Subsequently, the Company did not engage in any business activities up to January, 1997.

 

On January 1, 1997, the Shareholders adopted a plan of reorganization and merger between the Company and E. A. J. Holding Corp. Inc. (“Hold”) to be effective on or before January 31, 1997. Under the plan, the Company acquired all the issued and outstanding shares of “Hold,” a Delaware corporation making “Hold” a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company for 5,505,000 common shares of the Company. Since that time “Hold” has been dissolved.

 

On December 16, 2014, the Company amended it articles of incorporation and changed its domicile to Nevada.

 

In February 2015, pursuant to the approval of the Company’s Board of Directors and shareholders, the Company changed its name from Eat at Joe’s, Ltd. to SPYR, Inc. and adopted a new ticker symbol “SPYR” effective March 12, 2015.

 

Nature of Business

 

The Company owns and operates a theme restaurant styled in an “American Diner” atmosphere.

 

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, E.A.J. Market East, Inc., a Nevada corporation, and E.A.J. MO, Inc., a Nevada corporation. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories consist of food, paper items and related materials and are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company generates revenue from the sale of food and beverage through its restaurants. Revenue is recognized upon purchase of products and receipt of payment from customers.

 

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.

 

17
 

 

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 causes 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.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents to the extent the funds are not being held for investment purposes.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over the estimated economic useful lives of the related assets as follows:

 

Furniture & fixtures 5-10 years
Equipment 5- 7 years
Computer equipment 3 years
Leasehold improvements 6-15 years

 

Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations; betterments are capitalized. The cost of property sold or otherwise disposed of and the accumulated depreciation and amortization thereon are eliminated from the property and related accumulated depreciation and amortization accounts, and any resulting gain or loss is credited or charged to operations.

 

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 will eliminate transaction- and industry-specific 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 reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and early adoption is not permitted. Entities can transition to the standard either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. Management is currently assessing the impact the adoption of ASU 2014-09 and has not determined the effect of the standard on our ongoing financial reporting.

 

In April 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. (ASU) 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360). ASU 2014-08 amends the requirements for reporting discontinued operations and requires additional disclosures about discontinued operations. Under the new guidance, only disposals representing a strategic shift in operations or that have a major effect on the Company's operations and financial results should be presented as discontinued operations. This new accounting guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2014. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2014-08 on the Company's results of operations or financial condition.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, which provides guidance on determining when and how to disclose going-concern uncertainties in the financial statements. The new standard requires management to perform interim and annual assessments of an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date the financial statements are issued. An entity must provide certain disclosures if conditions or events raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ASU applies to all entities and is effective for annual periods ending after December 15, 2016, and interim periods thereafter, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2014-15 on the Company’s financial statement presentation and disclosures.

 

18
 

 

In January 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2015-01 (Subtopic 225-20) - Income Statement - Extraordinary and Unusual Items. ASU 2015-01 eliminates the concept of an extraordinary item from GAAP. As a result, an entity will no longer be required to segregate extraordinary items from the results of ordinary operations, to separately present an extraordinary item on its income statement, net of tax, after income from continuing operations or to disclose income taxes and earnings-per-share data applicable to an extraordinary item. However, ASU 2015-01 will still retain the presentation and disclosure guidance for items that are unusual in nature and occur infrequently. ASU 2015-01 is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2015. The adoption of ASU 2015-01 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Early adoption is permitted.

 

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. 

 

The Company continually assesses any new accounting pronouncements to determine their applicability to the Company. Where it is determined that a new accounting pronouncement affects the Company’s financial reporting, the Company undertakes a study to determine the consequence of the change to its financial statements and assures that there are proper controls in place to ascertain that the Company’s financials properly reflect the change.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The Company’s computation of earnings (loss) per share (EPS) includes basic and diluted EPS. The 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 earnings (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.

 

Diluted net income per common share for the year ended December 31, 2014 was calculated based on an increased number of shares that would be outstanding assuming that the preferred shares were converted to 27,403,099 (Class A - 26,909,028, Class E - 494,071) common shares as of December 31, 2014.

 

The basic and fully diluted shares for the year ended December 31, 2013 are the same because the inclusion of the potential shares (Class E – 3,225,806) would have had an anti-dilutive effect due to the Company generating a loss for the year ended December 31, 2013.

 

Pervasiveness 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 fixed asset impairment analysis, amounts of potential liabilities and valuation of issuance of equity securities. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company has no significant off-balance-sheet concentrations of credit risk such as foreign exchange contracts, options contracts or other foreign hedging arrangements. The Company maintains the majority of its cash balances with financial institutions, in the form of demand deposits. At December 31, 2014, the Company had cash deposits in two financial institutions that were above FDIC limits of $250,000. The Company believes that no significant concentration of credit risk exists with respect to these cash balances because of its assessment of the creditworthiness and financial viability of these two financial institutions.

 

19
 

 

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 fair value hierarchy defined by Paragraph 820-10-35-37 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 amount 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 value because of the short maturity of those instruments.

 

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

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain financial position and financial results in 2013, including accounts receivable, security deposits, merchant fees, professional fees and other general and administrative expenses have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassification did not change the reported total assets or net loss during 2013.

 

In presenting the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2013, the Company combined accounts receivable of $1,093 that were previously separately stated, with prepaid expenses and other current assets, and reclassified security deposits of $15,000 as other assets.

 

In presenting the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company reclassified merchant fees of $12,088, that were previously reflected as net revenues, to other general and administrative expenses and professional fees of $99,861, that were previously combined with other general and administrative expenses, have been separately stated.

 

Marketing and Promotional – Related Party

 

Marketing and promotional costs are expensed as incurred and included as a separate line item on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. Marketing and promotional expense was $2,260,850 for the year ended December 31, 2014. Included in the marketing and promotional costs were costs of e-mail marketing design and implementation, e-mail infrastructure campaign, digital advertising campaign, advertising sonar, purchase of Google ad words, image design, marketing campaign and direct placement ads.

 

There were no Marketing and promotional costs for the year ended December 31, 2013. As of December 31, 2014, there were no capitalized advertising costs on the balance sheet. The amounts were paid to an entity owned by a minority shareholder who subsequently became our Chief Information Officer (see Note 4.)

 

Segment Information and Reporting

 

The Company operated in one segment during 2014, but concurrent with the acquisition of Franklin Networks, Inc. (see Note 9), the Company will report the operations of two segments going forward.

 

NOTE 2 - INVESTMENT IN MARKETABLE SECURITIES

 

The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held for an indefinite period of time are classified as available-for-sale securities. Available-for-sale securities are purchased with the intent of selling them before they reach maturity and are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period excluded from earnings and recorded net of tax as a component of other comprehensive income. The Company’s available-for-sale securities are marketable securities and have no maturity date. When sold the cost of the securities is determined using the average purchase cost of the securities and the difference is recorded as a realized gain or loss. The Company will transfer some of its available for sale securities to trading securities. When this occurs the unrealized gain or loss is immediately recognized in earnings. 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.

 

20
 

During the year ended December 31, 2014, unrealized gain on trading securities included in results of operations resulting from transfers of securities from the available for sale category into the trading category were $1,285,009. As of December 31, 2014 all of the Company’s investments in marketable securities were classified as trading securities.

 

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:

Deferred tax assets and liabilities reflect the effects of tax losses, credits and the future income tax effects of temporary differences between the consolidated financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and are measured using enacted tax rates that apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

 

The Company’s net operating loss carry forward for income tax purposes as of December 31, 2014 was approximately $529,000 and may be offset against future taxable income through 2032. Current tax laws limit the amount of loss available to be offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs. Therefore, the amount available to offset future taxable income may be limited.

 

Uncertain Tax Positions

 

ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. In many cases the Company’s uncertain tax positions are related to tax years that remain subject to examination by relevant tax authorities. The Company is generally no longer subject to U.S. federal, state or local income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2011. However, as of December 31, 2014, the years subsequent to 2011 remain open and could be subject to examination by tax authorities including the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and major state and local tax jurisdictions in the United States.

 

Interest costs related to unrecognized tax benefits are classified as “Interest expense, net” in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. Penalties, if any, would be recognized as a component of “General and administrative expenses.”

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company had no liability for unrecognized tax benefits and no accrual for the payment of related interest and penalties, nor did the Company recognized any interest or penalties expense related to unrecognized tax benefits during the years ended December 31, 2014 or 2013.

All Class A Preferred Stockholders shall be treated the same with respect to the payment of dividends. In the event the Company elects to pay a portion or all of the dividends on the Class A Preferred Stock by issuing shares of the Company's Common Stock, the shares of common stock issued as dividends will be restricted, unregistered shares, and will be subject to the same transfer restrictions that apply to the shares of Class A Preferred Stock. The dividend is payable as may be determined by the Board of Directors, out of funds legally available therefor. The Class A Preferred Stock will have priority as to dividends over the Common Stock.

 

Voting Rights

 

The holders of the Class A Preferred Stock shall vote for the election of directors, and shall have full voting rights, except that each Class A Preferred share shall entitle the holder to exercise ten thousand (10,000) votes for each one ( 1) Class A Preferred Share held.

 

Redemptive Rights

 

The Class A Preferred Stock shall not be redeemable.

 

Conversion Rights

 

The holders of the Class A Preferred Stock will be entitled at any time to convert their shares of Class A Preferred Stock into shares of the Company's Common Stock at the rate of one (1) share of Class A Preferred Stock be converted into common shares of the Company at an agreed price of forty cents ($0.40) per share (the "Conversion Price"), which, based upon the recorded fair value of the Class A Preferred Stock, results in a conversion ratio of 1 share of Class A Preferred Stock to approximately 250 shares of common stock. No fractional shares will be issued.

  

The Conversion Ratio of the Class A Preferred Stock shall be adjusted in certain circumstances, including the payment of a stock dividend on shares of the Common Stock and combinations and subdivisions of the Common Stock.

 

In the case of any share exchange, capital reorganization, consolidation, merger or reclassification, whereby the Common Stock is converted into other securities or property, the Company will make appropriate provisions so that the holder of each share of Class A Preferred Stock then outstanding, will have the right thereafter to convert such share of Class A Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock and other securities and property receivable upon such consolidation, merger, share exchange, capital reorganization or reclassification by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Class A Preferred Stock might have been converted immediately prior to such consolidation, merger, share exchange, capital reorganization or reclassification. If the shares of Common Stock are subdivided or combined into a greater or smaller number of shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Ratio shall be proportionately increased in the case of subdivision of shares. If the shares of Common Stock are combined, consolidated or reverse split into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Ratio shall be proportionally decreased. The kind and type of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Class A Preferred Stock both before and after combination, consolidation or reverse split of the Common Shares shall be the same.

 

26
 

 

The same transfer restrictions imposed on the Class A Preferred Stock shall be applicable to the Common Stock into which the Class A Preferred Stock is converted, although for purposes of Rule 144 as presently in effect, the holding period requirement may be met by adding together the period in which the Class A Preferred Stock is held and the period in which the Common Stock into which the Class A Preferred Stock is converted, is held.

 

Other Provisions

 

The shares of Class A Preferred Stock to be issued and any Common Shares into which it is converted, shall be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. The holders of the Class A Preferred Stock shall not have pre-emptive rights with respect to any shares of capital stock of the Company or any other securities of the Company convertible into Common Stock or rights or options to purchase any such shares.

 

The Class E Convertible Preferred Stock carries the following rights and preferences;

 

* No dividends.
* Convertible to common stock at the average closing bid price for the Company’s common stock for the 5 trading days prior to the conversion date, and is adjustable to prevent dilution.  (Convertible to 494,071 common shares at December 31, 2014).

ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

 

There are not and have not been any disagreements between the Company and its accountants on any matter of accounting principles, practices or financial statements disclosure.

 

ITEM 9A. 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 December 31, 2014, 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.

 

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.

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K does not include an attestation report of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

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 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.

Board Meetings and Committees

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

 

Based solely upon a review of forms 3, 4, and 5 and amendments thereto, furnished to the Company during or respecting its last fiscal year, no director, officer, beneficial owner of more than 10% of any class of equity securities of the Company or any other person known to be subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, failed to file on a timely basis reports required by Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act for the last fiscal year.

 

Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

The Company's board of directors does not have an "audit committee financial expert," within the meaning of such phrase under applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, serving on its audit committee. The board of directors believes that all members of its audit committee are financially literate and experienced in business matters, and that one or more members of the audit committee are capable of: (i) understanding generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and financial statements; (ii) assessing the general application of GAAP principles in connection with our accounting for estimates, accruals and reserves; (iii) analyzing and evaluating our financial statements; (iv) understanding our internal controls and procedures for financial reporting; and (v) understanding audit committee functions, all of which are attributes of an audit committee financial expert. However, the board of directors believes that there is not any audit committee member who has obtained these attributes through the experience specified in the SEC's definition of "audit committee financial expert." Further, like many small companies, it is difficult for the Company to attract and retain board members who qualify as "audit committee financial experts," and competition for these individuals is significant. The board believes that its current audit committee is able to fulfill its role under SEC regulations despite not having a designated "audit committee financial expert."
