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, 2014 filed with the SEC. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014 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.

 

From 2002 to present, the Company has owned and operated one “American Diner” theme restaurant called “Eat at Joe’s (R)”. Located in the Philadelphia International Airport, Eat at Joe's, the classic American grill, is a restaurant concept that takes you back to eating in the era when favorite old rockers were playing on chrome-spangled jukeboxes and neon signs reflected on shiny tabletops of the 1950's.

 

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

 

On February 23, 2015 the Company issued an aggregate of 2.5 million shares of its restricted common stock valued at $1,700,000, in exchange for the issued and outstanding shares of Franklin Networks, Inc., A Tennessee corporation. (“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 (see Note 3).

 

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.

 

On March 24, 2015, the Company organized its wholly owned subsidiary SPYR APPS, LLC, (“Apps”) a Nevada Limited Liability Company for the purpose of expanding the Company’s digital media presence into the mobile app industry.

 

Nature of Business

 

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

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of SPYR, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Franklin Networks, Inc., a Tennessee corporation, E.A.J.: PHL, Airport Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation, SPYR APPS, LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company, 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.

 

The results of operations attributable to subsidiaries are included in the consolidated results of operations beginning on the date on which the Company’s interest in a subsidiary was acquired.

 

Inventories

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition

 

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

 

Through our wholly owned subsidiary Franklin Networks, Inc. we produce content for websites and attract visitors to our sites, and then sell advertising on our sites, which generates revenue. Ad revenue is recognized when the service has been provided and collection is reasonable assured.

 

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

 

Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets acquired, either individually or with a group of other assets (but not those acquired in a business combination), are initially recognized and measured based on fair value. Goodwill acquired in business combinations is initially computed as the amount paid by the acquiring company in excess of the fair value of the net assets acquired.

 

The cost of internally developing, maintaining and restoring intangible assets (including goodwill) that are not specifically identifiable, that have indeterminate lives, or that are inherent in a continuing business and related to an entity as a whole, are recognized as an expense when incurred.

 

An intangible asset (excluding goodwill) with a definite useful life is amortized; an intangible asset with an indefinite useful life is not amortized until its useful life is determined to be no longer indefinite. The remaining useful lives of intangible assets not being amortized are evaluated at least annually to determine whether events and circumstances continue to support an indefinite useful life.

 

The Company evaluates intangible assets and goodwill for impairment, at a minimum, on an annual basis and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable from its estimated undiscounted future cash flows. Recoverability of goodwill and intangible assets is measured by comparing their net book value to the related projected undiscounted cash flows from these assets, considering a number of factors, including past operating results, budgets, economic projections, market trends and product development cycles. If the net book value of the asset exceeds the related undiscounted cash flows, the asset is considered impaired, and a second test is performed to measure the amount of impairment loss.

 

At March 31, 2015, goodwill and intangible assets balances were $1,435,000 and $290,202, respectively. There were no indications of impairment based on management’s assessment of these assets at March 31, 2015. Factors we consider important that could trigger an impairment review include significant underperformance relative to historical or projected future operating results, significant changes in the manner of the use of our assets or the strategy for our overall business, and significant negative industry or economic trends. If current economic conditions worsen causing decreased revenues and increased costs, we may have to record an impairment to our goodwill and intangible assets.

 

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, however, FASB has proposed a one-year deferral. 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 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.

 

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. 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.

 

The basic and fully diluted shares for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are the same because the inclusion of the potential shares (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.

 

Diluted net income per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was calculated based on an increased number of shares that would be outstanding assuming that the Class E preferred shares were converted to 3,380,663 common shares as of March 31, 2014.

 

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, goodwill and intangible 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 March 31, 2015, the Company had cash deposits in three 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.

 

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 2014, including accounts receivable, 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 2014.

 

In presenting the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014, the Company separately reported accounts receivable of $1,093 that were previously combined with prepaid expenses and other current assets, and separately reported intangible assets of $5,000 that were previously combined with other assets.

 

In presenting the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company reclassified merchant fees of $7,419, that were previously reflected as net revenues, to other general and administrative expenses and professional fees of $147,720, that were previously combined with other general and administrative expenses, have been separately stated.
