Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “goals,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “continues,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to projections of our future financial performance, our anticipated growth and trends in our businesses, uncertain events or assumptions, and other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on management's expectations as of the date of this filing and involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include those described throughout this report and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, particularly the “Risk Factors” sections of such reports. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made in this Form 10-Q and in other documents we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission that disclose risks and uncertainties that may affect our business. The forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q do not reflect the potential impact of any divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, or other business combinations that had not been completed as of July 6, 2020. In addition, the forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q are made as of the date of this filing, and we do not undertake, and expressly disclaims any duty, to update such statements, whether as a result of new information, new developments or otherwise, except to the extent that disclosure may be required by law.

1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

DPW Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“DPW” or the “Company”), formerly known as Digital Power Corporation, was incorporated in September 2017. The Company is a diversified holding company owning subsidiaries engaged in the following operating businesses: commercial and defense solutions, commercial lending and advanced textile technology. The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries are Gresham Worldwide, Inc. (“GWW”), Coolisys Technologies Corp. (“Coolisys”), Gresham Power Electronics Ltd. (f/k/a Digital Power Limited) (“Gresham Power”), Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd (“Enertec”), Digital Power Lending, LLC (“DP Lending”) and Digital Farms, Inc. (“Digital Farms”). The Company also has a controlling interest in Microphase Corporation (“Microphase”). The Company has three reportable segments – defense solution through GWW with operations conducted by Microphase, Enertec and Gresham Power, commercial solution through Coolisys and commercial lending through DP Lending.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company ceased operations at Digital Farms, the Company’s blockchain mining subsidiary, and I. AM, Inc. (“I. AM”). Management determined that the permanent closing of the restaurant operations at I. AM, which owned and operated the Prep Kitchen brand restaurants located in the San Diego area, met the criteria for presentation as discontinued operations. Accordingly, the results of the restaurant operations segment are presented as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss and are excluded from continuing operations for all periods presented.

 

On March 14, 2019, pursuant to the authorization provided by the Company’s stockholders at a Special Meeting of Stockholders, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation (the “COI Amendment”) to effectuate a reverse stock split of the Common Stock of the Company’s issued and outstanding number of such shares by a ratio of one-for-twenty (the “First Stock Split”). At the Company’s 2019 reconvened Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal permitting the Board to effectuate a second reverse stock split (the “Second Stock Split”) of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock. Thereafter, on July 23, 2019, the Board approved the Second Stock Split with a ratio of one-for-forty. The Second Stock Split did not affect the number of authorized shares of Common Stock or their par value per share. As a result of the Second Stock Split, each forty shares of common stock issued and outstanding prior to the Second Stock Split were converted into one share of common stock. The Second Stock Split became effective in the State of Delaware on August 5, 2019. All share amounts in these financial statements have been updated to reflect these reverse stock splits.

 

2. LIQUIDITY, GOING CONCERN AND MANAGEMENT’S PLANS

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $626,337, an accumulated deficit of $95,186,473 and negative working capital of $19,229,061. The Company has incurred recurring losses and reported losses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, totaling $6,531,548 and $6,711,026, respectively. In the past, the Company has financed its operations principally through issuances of convertible debt, promissory notes and equity securities. During 2020, the Company continued to successfully obtain additional equity and debt financing and restructured existing debt.

 

The Company expects to continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future and needs to raise additional capital to continue its business development initiatives and to support its working capital requirements. During February 2020, the Company entered into a Master Exchange Agreement with an entity that, subject to shareholder approval, has agreed to purchase up to approximately $7.7 million in certain promissory notes previously issued by the Company. Management believes that the Company has access to capital resources through potential public or private issuances of debt or equity securities. However, if the Company is unable to raise additional capital, which ability could be adversely affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19, it may be required to curtail operations and take additional measures to reduce costs, including reducing its workforce, eliminating outside consultants and reducing legal fees to conserve its cash in amounts sufficient to sustain operations and meet its obligations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might become necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) as a pandemic which continues to spread throughout the United States and the world.  The Company is monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and the related business and travel restrictions and changes to behavior intended to reduce its spread, and its impact on operations, financial position, cash flows, inventory, supply chains, customer purchasing trends, customer payments, and the industry in general, in addition to the impact on its employees. Due to the rapid development and fluidity of this situation, the magnitude and duration of the pandemic and its impact on the Company's operations and liquidity is uncertain as of the date of this report. 

 

However, the Company’s business has been disrupted and materially adversely affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Consequently, the Company is relying on the order issued by the SEC on March 25, 2020, providing an additional 45 days from the original due date to file this Form 10-Q. The Company is still assessing its business operations and system supports and the impact COVID-19 may have on its results and financial condition, but there can be no assurance that this analysis will enable the Company to avoid part or all of any impact from the spread of COVID-19 or its consequences, including downturns in business sentiment generally or in its sectors in particular.

 

The Company’s operations are located in Alameda County, CA, Orange County, CA, Fairfield County, CT, the United Kingdom, Israel and members of senior management work in Seattle, WA and New York, NY. The Company has been following the recommendations of local health authorities to minimize exposure risk for its employees, including the temporary closures of its offices and having employees work remotely to the extent possible, which has to an extent adversely affected their efficiency.

 

Updates by business unit are as follows:

 

·DPW Holdings’ corporate headquarters, located in Newport Beach, CA, has begun working remotely, based on the occupancy and social distancing order from the Orange County Health Officer (http://www.ochealthinfo.com/phs/about/epidasmt/epi/dip/prevention/novel_coronavirus). The headquarters staff has tested the secure remote access systems and technology infrastructure to adjust working arrangements for its employees and believes it has adequate internal communications system and can remain operational with a remote staff.

 

·Coolisys Technologies Corp., located in Fremont, CA, had temporarily suspended operations as a result of the Alameda County Public Health Department’s order to cease all activities at facilities located within the County.

 

·Microphase Corporation, located in Shelton, CT, has developed an emergency plan to ensure that its mission critical manufacturing and logistical functions are up and running. Microphase has implemented additional steps to ensure a higher level of cleanliness in its facility. Employees at greater risk of major health issues from COVID-19, which include key members of its finance department, are not required to work on site. The crisis management team meets regularly to monitor the situation, and modifies and communicates the plan as the need arises. Once the COVID-19 crisis has passed, the team will work on transitioning Microphase back to normal operations.

 

·Gresham Power Electronics Limited, located in Salisbury, UK, temporarily suspended operations on March 19, 2020.

3. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X and do not include all the information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company has made estimates and judgments affecting the amounts reported in our condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially from our estimates. The condensed consolidated financial information is unaudited but reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary to provide a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 1, 2020. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2019 was derived from the Company’s audited 2019 financial statements contained in the above referenced Form 10-K/A. Results of the three months ended March 31, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2020.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of DPW and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, GWW, Coolisys, Digital Power Corporation (a wholly owned subsidiary of Coolisys), Gresham Power, Enertec, DP Lending and Digital Farms and its majority-owned subsidiaries, Microphase and I.AM. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements, in conformity with U.S. GAAP, requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions. The Company's management believes that the estimates, judgments and assumptions used are reasonable based upon information available at the time they are made. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Key estimates include acquisition accounting, fair value of certain financial instruments, reserve for trade receivables and inventories, carrying amounts of investments, carrying amounts of digital currencies, accruals of certain liabilities including product warranties, useful lives and the recoverability of long-lived assets, impairment analysis of intangibles and goodwill, and deferred income taxes and related valuation allowance.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets:

 

Management reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to undiscounted expected future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by comparing the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets to their fair value. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, management determined that its operating right-of-use assets attributed to the discontinued operations of I.AM were impaired by $1,020,514.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the new revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

·Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer,
·Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract,
·Step 3: Determine the transaction price,
·Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and
·Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

The Company’s disaggregated revenues consist of the following for the three months ended March 31, 2020:

Sales of Products

 

The Company generates revenues from the sale of its products through a direct and indirect sales force. The Company’s performance obligations to deliver products are satisfied at the point in time when products are received by the customer, which is when the customer obtains control over the goods. The Company provides standard assurance warranties, which are not separately priced, that the products function as intended. The Company primarily receives fixed consideration for sales of product. Some of the Company’s contracts with distributors include stock rotation rights after six months for slow moving inventory, which represents variable consideration. The Company uses an expected value method to estimate variable consideration and constrains revenue for estimated stock rotations until it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur. To date, returns have been insignificant. The Company’s customers generally pay within 30 days from the receipt of a valid invoice.

 

Because the Company’s product sales agreements have an expected duration of one year or less, the Company has elected to adopt the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14(a) of not disclosing information about its remaining performance obligations.

 

Manufacturing Services

 

The Company provides manufacturing services in exchange primarily for fixed fees; however, the initial two MLSE units are subject to variable pricing under the $50 million purchase order from MTIX. Under the terms of the MLSE purchase order, the Company is entitled to cost plus $100,000 for the manufacture of the first two MLSE units. The Company has determined that the costs of manufacturing the MLSE units will decline over time because of a learning curve which will result in a greater amount of revenue being recognized for these initial two MLSE units.

For manufacturing services, which include revenues generated by Enertec and in certain instances revenues generated by Gresham Power, the Company’s performance obligation for manufacturing services is satisfied over time as the Company creates or enhances an asset based on criteria that are unique to the customer and that the customer controls as the asset is created or enhanced. Generally, the Company recognizes revenue based upon proportional performance over time using a cost to cost method which measures progress based on the costs incurred to total expected costs in satisfying its performance obligation. This method provides a depiction of the progress in providing the manufacturing service because there is a direct relationship between the costs incurred by the Company and the transfer of the manufacturing service to the customer. Manufacturing services that are recognized based upon the proportional performance method are included in the above table as services transferred over time and to the extent the customer has not been invoiced for these revenues, as accrued revenue in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Revisions to the Company’s estimates may result in increases or decreases to revenues and income and are reflected in the consolidated financial statements in the periods in which they are first identified.

 

The Company has elected the practical expedient to not adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component to the extent that the period between when the Company transfers its promised good or service to the customer and when the customer pays in one year or less.

 

The aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to the performance obligation that is partially unsatisfied as of March 31, 2020, for the MLSE units was approximately $48 million, representing 24 MLSE units. Based on our expectations regarding funding of the production process and our experience building the first machines, the Company expects to recognize the remaining revenue related to the partially unsatisfied performance obligation over an estimated three year period. The Company will be paid in installments for this performance obligation over the estimated period that the remaining revenue is recognized.

 

Lending Activities

 

DP Lending generates revenue from lending activities primarily through interest, origination fees and late/other fees. Interest income on these products is calculated based on the contractual interest rate and recorded as interest income as earned. The origination fees or original issue discounts are recognized over the life of the loan using the effective interest method.

 

Fair value of Financial Instruments

 

In accordance with ASC No. 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, fair value is defined as the exit price, or the amount that would be received for the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date.

 

The guidance also establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs include those that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. The guidance establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or model-derived valuations. All significant inputs used in our valuations are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated with observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs also include quoted prices that were adjusted for security-specific restrictions which are compared to output from internally developed models such as a discounted cash flow model.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The carrying amounts of financial instruments carried at cost, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables and accounts and other receivable – related party, investments, notes receivable, trade payables and trade payables – related party approximate their fair value due to the short-term maturities of such instruments.

 

The categorization of a financial instrument within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The following table sets forth the Company’s financial instruments (see Note 5 and Note 9) that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy:

Net Loss per Share

 

Net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The calculation of the basic and diluted earnings per share is the same for all periods presented, as the effect of the potential common stock equivalents is anti-dilutive due to the Company’s net loss position for all periods presented. The Company has included 6,500 warrants, which are exercisable for shares of the Company’s common stock on a one-for-one basis, in its earnings per share calculation for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Anti-dilutive securities, which are convertible into or exercisable for the Company’s common stock, consist of the following at March 31, 2020 and 2019:

 

   March 31, 
   2020   2019 
Stock options   950    9,006 
Warrants (1)   765,422    23,410 
Convertible notes   561,158    35,961 
Conversion of preferred stock   2,232    2,232 
Total   1,329,762    70,609 

 

(1)The Company has excluded 6,500 warrants issued in April 2019, which may be exercised by means of a cashless exercise into 6,500 shares of the Company’s common stock, in its anti-dilutive securities but included the warrants in its weighted average shares outstanding.

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for comparative purposes to conform to the current-year financial statement presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported results of operations. In addition, certain prior year amounts from the restated amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period presentation.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (“ASU 2019-12”), which is intended to simplify various aspects related to accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 and also clarifies and amends existing guidance to improve consistent application. ASU 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. The Company has not early adopted ASU 2019-12 and is currently evaluating its impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

 

4.  Discontinued Operations

 

On March 16, 2020, to try and mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), San Diego County health officials issued orders mandating that all restaurants must end dine-in services. As a result of these temporary closures and the deteriorating business conditions at both the Company’s cryptocurrency mining and restaurant businesses, the Company concluded that discontinuing the operations of Digital Farms and I. AM was ultimately in its best interest.

 

Digital Farms was established to pursue a variety of digital currencies and mined the top three cryptocurrencies for its own account. Although the Company has ceased operations at Digital Farms, since the assets and operations have not yet been abandoned, sold or distributed, these assets do not yet meet the requirement for presentation as discontinued operations. In the first quarter of 2020, management determined that the permanent closing of the restaurant operations met the criteria for presentation as discontinued operations. Accordingly, the results of the restaurant operations are presented as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss and are excluded from continuing operations for all periods presented. In addition, the assets and liabilities of the restaurant operations are classified as held for sale in our condensed consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented.

 

The following tables summarize the major classes of assets and liabilities included as part of discontinued operations:

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had invested in the marketable equity securities of certain publicly traded companies. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, unrealized losses of $121,068 were included in net income as a component of change in fair value of equity securities. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recognized unrealized gains of $258,905. The Company’s investment in marketable equity securities will be revalued on each balance sheet date.  The fair value of the Company’s holdings in marketable equity securities at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 is a Level 1 measurement based on quoted prices in an active market.

 

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company also held equity investments in private companies and an investment in a limited partnership. These investments do not have readily determinable fair values and have been measured at cost less impairment, if any, and adjusted for observable price changes for identical or similar investments of the issuer.

 

6. PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT, NET

 

At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, property and equipment consist of:

Property and equipment, net  $1,731,125   $1,787,393 

 

Under the guidance of ASC 360, Impairment or Disposal of Long-lived Assets, a long-lived asset or asset group (including intangibles) will be tested for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that its carrying amount may not be recoverable. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, based upon the deteriorating business conditions for restaurants in the San Diego County as result of the spread of COVID-19 and the decline in projected cash flows over the life of the restaurant equipment, the Company performed an undiscounted cash flow test to determine if the restaurant equipment was impaired. The undiscounted cash flows were less than the carrying amount of the Company’s restaurant equipment and therefore, the carrying amount of the assets were compared to the fair value of the restaurant equipment, and the Company determined that there were impairment charges to be recorded on the restaurant equipment. Impairment charges for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were in an amount equal to the cost of the Company’s restaurant equipment, net of depreciation of $504,802, and are included as a component of net loss from discontinued operations (see Note 4).

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, depreciation expense amounted to $174,947 and $799,023, respectively.

The Company’s investments in AVLP, a related party controlled by Philou Ventures, LLC, or Philou, an affiliate of the Company, consist of convertible promissory notes, derivative instruments and shares of AVLP common stock. At March 31, 2020, the Company has provided loans to AVLP in the principal amount $9,645,879 and, in addition to the 12% convertible promissory notes, AVLP has issued to the Company warrants to purchase 19,291,758 shares of AVLP common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share for a period of five years. The warrants were determined by the issuer to be derivative financial instruments. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company recorded a cumulative unrealized loss on its investment in warrants of AVLP of $5,606,350 and $4,364,256, respectively, representing the difference between the cost basis and the estimated fair value of the warrants in the Company’s accumulated other comprehensive income in the stockholder's equity section of the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized, in other comprehensive loss, net unrealized loss on derivative securities of related party of $1,242,094 and $736,680, respectively. The Company’s investment in AVLP will be revalued on each balance sheet date. The fair value of the Company’s holdings in the AVLP warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method. The risk-free rate, which ranged between 0.23% and 2.60%, was derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve, matching the term of our investment, in effect at the measurement date. The volatility factor which ranged between 68.7% and 89.4% was determined based on historical stock prices for similar technology companies with market capitalizations under $100 million. The warrant valuation is a Level 3 measurement.

 

In accordance with ASC No. 310, Receivables (“ASC 310”), the Company had accounted for its convertible promissory notes in AVLP at amortized cost, which represents the amount at which the convertible promissory notes were acquired, adjusted for accrued interest and accretion of original issue discount and discount attributed to the fair value of the warrants that the Company received in conjunction with its investment. Interest was accreted using the effective interest method. The Company recorded interest on an accrual basis and recognized it as earned in accordance with the contractual terms of the convertible promissory notes, to the extent that such amounts are expected to be collected. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded $619,809 of interest income for the discount accretion and $210,191 of interest income from the contractual 12% rate provided for by the convertible promissory notes. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, no interest income was recognized from the Company’s investment in AVLP.

 

The Company evaluated the collectability of both interest and principal for the convertible promissory notes in AVLP to determine whether there was an impairment. Based on current information and events, primarily the value of the underlying conversion feature and current economic events, the Company concluded that an impairment existed at December 31, 2019. At March 31, 2020, the Company determined that the fair value of the convertible promissory notes in AVLP was approximately $5,591,381. The Company’s determination of fair value was based upon the estimated present value of a future liquidity event combined with the closing price of AVLP’s common stock at March 31, 2020. Accordingly, the Company recorded a $1,000,000 provision for credit losses. Impairment assessments require significant judgments and are based on significant assumptions related to the borrower’s credit risk, financial performance, expected sales, and estimated fair value of the collateral.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and year ended December 31, 2019, the Company also acquired in the open market 5,000 shares of AVLP common stock for $1,274 and 91,000 shares of AVLP common stock for $53,032, respectively. At March 31, 2020, the closing market price of AVLP’s common stock was $0.05, a decline from $0.24 at December 31, 2019. The Company has determined that its investment in AVLP marketable equity securities should be accounted for in accordance with ASC No. 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures and based upon the closing market price of AVLP common stock at March 31, 2020, the Company’s investment in AVLP common stock had an unrealized loss of $697,876.

 

In aggregate, the Company has 999,175 shares of AVLP common stock which represents 18.0% of AVLP’s outstanding shares of common stock. The Company has determined that AVLP is a variable interest entity (“VIE”) as it does not have sufficient equity at risk. The Company does not consolidate AVLP because the Company is not the primary beneficiary and does not have a controlling financial interest. To be a primary beneficiary, an entity must have the power to direct the activities of a VIE that most significantly impact the VIE's economic performance, among other factors. Although the Company has made a significant investment in AVLP, the Company has determined that Philou, which controls AVLP through the voting power conferred by its equity investment and which is deemed to be more closely associated with AVLP, is the primary beneficiary. As a result, AVLP’s financial position and results of operations are not consolidated in our financial position and results of operations.

 

10. INVESTMENTS IN LIMITED PARTNERSHIP

 

On June 8, 2018, the Company entered into a limited partnership agreement, in which it agreed to become a limited partner in the partnership (the “NY Partnership”). The NY Partnership is a limited partner in the partnership that is responsible for the construction and related activities of a hotel in New York City. In connection with this transaction, the Company has agreed to finance a portion of the capital required by the NY Partnership. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had invested an aggregate of $1,869,000 in the NY Partnership and $100,000 in another real estate investment. The Company has no obligation to make any capital contributions until the hotel is open for business to the public.

 

11. OTHER INVESTMENTS, RELATED PARTIES

 

The Company’s other related party investments primarily consist of two investments.

 

MTIX, Ltd.

 

On December 5, 2017, the Company entered into an exchange agreement with WT Johnson pursuant to which the Company issued to WT Johnson two convertible promissory notes in the principal amounts of $600,000 (“Note A”) and $1,667,766 (“Note B”), in exchange for cancellation of amounts due to WT Johnson by MTIX Ltd., a related party of the Company.

 

During December 2017, the Company issued 750 shares of its common stock to WT Johnson & Sons upon the conversion of Note A and WT Johnson subsequently sold the 750 shares. The proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock received upon the conversion of Note A were sufficient to satisfy the entire $2,267,766 obligation as well as an additional $400,500 of value added tax due to WT Johnson. Concurrent with entering into the exchange agreement, the Company received a promissory note in the amount of $2,668,266 from MTIX and cancelled Note B. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company has valued the note receivable at $600,000, the carrying amount of Note A. The Company will recognize the remainder of the amount due from MTIX upon payment of the promissory note by MTIX.

Israeli Property

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, our President, Amos Kohn, purchased certain real property that serves as a facility for the Company’s business operations in Israel. The Company made $300,000 in payments to the seller of the property and received a 28% undivided interest in the real property (the “Property”). The Company’s indirectly held wholly owned subsidiary, Coolisys Technologies, Inc. (“CTI”), entered into a Trust Agreement and Tenancy in Common Agreement with Roni Kohn, who owns a 72% interest in the Property, the daughter of Mr. Kohn and an Israeli citizen. The Property was purchased to serve as a residence/office facility for the Company in order to oversee its Israeli operations and to expand its business in the high-tech industry located in Israel. Pursuant to the Trust Agreement, Ms. Kohn will hold and manage CTI’s undivided 28% interest in the Property. The trust will be in effect until it is terminated by mutual agreement of the parties. During the term of the trust, Ms. Kohn will not sell, lease, sublease, transfer, grant, encumber, change or effect any other disposition with respect to the Property or CTI’s interest without the Company’s approval.

 

Under the Tenancy in Common Agreement, CTI and its executive officers shall have the exclusive rights to use the Property for the Company and its affiliates’ business operations. The Property shall be managed by Ms. Kohn. Further, pursuant to the Tenancy in Common Agreement, for each completed calendar month of employment of Mr. Kohn by the Company, Ms. Kohn shall have the right to purchase a portion of the Company’s interest in the Property. Such right shall fully vest at the end of five years of continuous employment and the Trustee shall have the right to purchase the Company’s 28% interest in the Property for a nominal price. The Company will amortize its $300,000 investment over ten years, subject to a cliff vesting after five years. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized $7,500 in amortization expense. At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the unamortized balance of the Israeli Property was $225,000 and $232,500, respectively. If Mr. Kohn is not employed by the Company, the Company shall have the right to demand that Ms. Kohn purchase the Company’s remaining interest in the Property that was not subject to vesting for the fair market value of such unvested Property interest.

 

12. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Under the Company's 2018 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”), 2017 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”), 2016 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan”) and the 2012 Stock Option Plan, as amended (the “2012 Plan”) (collectively, the “Plans”), options may be granted to employees, officers, consultants, service providers and directors of the Company. On July 19, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment to the 2018 Plan which increased the number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may be issued thereunder to a total of 175,000 shares. The Plans, as amended, provide for the issuance of a maximum of 184,216 shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

Options granted under the Plans have an exercise price equal to or greater than the fair value of the underlying common stock at the date of grant and become exercisable based on a vesting schedule determined at the date of grant. Typically, options granted generally become fully vested after four years. Any options that are forfeited or cancelled before expiration become available for future grants. The options expire between 5 and 10 years from the date of grant. Restricted stock awards granted under the Plans are subject to a vesting period determined at the date of grant. As of March 31, 2020, an aggregate of 53,543 of the Company's options are still available for future grant.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company did not grant any options under the Plans. Generally, options granted under the Plans become fully vested after four years. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company also issued 65,000 and 9,375, respectively, shares of common stock to its consultants and service providers. The grant date fair value of these shares amounted to $73,450 and $253,019 respectively, which was determined from the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance.

 

The Company has valued the options at their date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This model is dependent upon several variables such as the options’ term, exercise price, current stock price, risk-free interest rate estimated over the expected term and estimated volatility of our stock over the expected term of the options. The risk-free interest rate used in the calculations is based on the implied yield available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent term approximating the expected life of the options as calculated using the simplified method. The estimated volatility was determined based on the historical volatility of our common stock.

Master Exchange Agreement

 

On February 10, 2020, the Company entered into a master exchange agreement (the “Master Exchange Agreement”) with Esousa Holdings, LLC (“Esousa” or the “Creditor”) which acquired $4,163,481 in principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of certain promissory notes that had been previously issued by us to Dominion (the “Dominion Short-Term Promissory Note”) and the Canadian Special Opportunity Fund, LP (the “CSOF Short-Term Promissory Note” and with the Dominion Short-Term Promissory Note, the “Purchased Notes”) in separate transactions. The Creditor also agreed to purchase additional notes up to an additional principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of $3.5 million (the “Additional Notes” and collectively, with the Purchased Notes, the “Notes”). Pursuant to the Master Exchange Agreement, the Creditor has the unilateral right to acquire shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Exchange Shares”) in exchange for the Notes.

 

The first exchange occurred on the date of the Master Exchange Agreement upon which the Creditor may exchange, in whole or in part, the Dominion Note for the Exchange Shares (the “Initial Exchange”) and the second exchange (the “Second Exchange” and together with the Initial Exchange, the “Exchange”) shall occur if the Company receives stockholder approval at a special meeting thereof for the Exchange of the Additional Notes for the Company’s common stock, and subsequently, authorization from the NYSE American (together, the “Required Approvals”).

 

The Exchange Agreement provides for two pricing periods, the first of which shall commence after the date on which the Creditor receives the Exchange Shares pursuant to the Initial Exchange and ending on the date that is 90 days after receipt thereof, subject to extension as provided for in the Exchange Agreement, and the second of which shall commence on the date on which the Creditor receives the Exchange Shares pursuant to the Second Exchange and ending on the date that is 90 days after receipt thereof, in either case, unless earlier terminated by the Creditor by written notice.

 

The number of shares to be issued upon each Exchange will be equal to (x) the principal and accrued but unpaid interest due on the Notes being exchanged multiplied by 1.35, divided by (y) the closing bid price effective on each date of an exchange notice, provided, however, that the Company shall theretofore have obtained the Required Approvals (the “Exchange Price”). The total number of shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued to Creditor in connection with the applicable Exchange shall be adjusted on the Business Day immediately following the Pricing Period based upon the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of the Company’s common stock over the applicable Pricing Period (the “VWAP Shares”). VWAP Shares means the number of shares determined by dividing (x) the Exchange Amount of the applicable Exchange, multiplied by 1.1, by (y) the greater of (I) seventy-five percent (75.0%) of the VWAP of the Company’s common stock over the applicable Pricing Period, or (II) $0.30 per share.

   

Pursuant to the Master Exchange Agreement, the Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,832,597 shares of common stock at an average exercise price equal to $1.43 per share of common stock. The warrants shall be exercisable commencing on the date upon which the Company receives the Required Approvals therefor. In connection therewith, the Company has agreed to file a registration statement to register the sale of the shares of common stock underlying the exercise of the warrants by the Creditor pursuant to the Master Exchange Agreement. In the event that the Creditor does not purchase all of the Additional Notes, the Company shall have the option to acquire a portion of the warrants from the Creditor for an aggregate price of $1.00. Consequently, at March 31, 2020, since the Creditor had not purchased all of the Additional Notes, the option represented the right to acquire 1,562,399 of the warrants from the Creditor. Therefore, only 270,198 options are deemed outstanding at March 31, 2020.

 

The Company computed the fair value of the 270,198 warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and, as a result of this calculation, recorded a loss on extinguishment in the amount of $232,177 based on the estimated fair value of the warrants. The fair value of the warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method. The risk-free rate of 1.38% was derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve, matching the term of the warrants, in effect at the measurement dates. The volatility factor of 86.31% was determined based on historical stock prices of similar technology companies. The Company, however, is prohibited from issuing the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants unless stockholder approval of such issuance of securities is obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules. The Company has not yet received stockholder approval of such share issuances.

The Esousa 12% short-term promissory notes have a term of three months.

 

The Company computed the fair value of the warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and, as a result of this calculation, recorded debt discount in the amount of $182,718 based on the estimated fair value of the warrants. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, non-cash interest expense of $59,810 was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts.

The volatility factor of 86.31% was determined based on historical stock prices of similar technology companies. The Company, however, is prohibited from issuing the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the warrants unless stockholder approval of such issuance of securities is obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules.

8% Convertible Promissory Note

 

On November 15, 2019, the Company entered into an exchange agreement with a lender pursuant to which the Company issued to the lender a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $935,772 with an interest rate of 8% per annum. The 8% convertible promissory note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at conversion price of $1.80. During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, the Company issued 496,500 shares of common stock upon the conversion of principal and interest of $893,700. Subsequent to March 31, 2020, the Company issued an additional 32,925 shares of common stock upon the conversion of the remaining outstanding principal and interest of $59,265. Since the proceeds received by the investor from the sales of common stock were less than the amount of principal and accrued interest, the investor was due a true up payment in the amount of $210,049, which was recognized as additional interest expense.

 

12% Convertible Promissory Note

 

On February 5, 2020 the Company entered into an exchange agreement (the “February 2020 Exchange Agreement”) with an institutional investor pursuant to which the Company issued to the investor a 12% convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $295,000 with a conversion price of $1.45 per share of common stock and a 12% promissory note in the principal amount of $585,919 (see Note 17). These two notes were issued upon the exchange of the 12% Convertible Note, in the principal amount of $815,218, issued on September 26, 2019. On February 25, 2020, the Company issued to the investor 203,448 shares of the Company’s common stock upon the conversion of principal of $295,000. Since the exchange provided the institutional investor with a substantive conversion feature, the debt instruments were determined to be substantially different and a loss on extinguishment of $20,345 was recognized.

 

20. CONVERTIBLE NOTE PAYABLE – RELATED PARTY

 

On February 5, 2020, the Company issued an 8% convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $1,000,000 to Ault & Company (the “Ault & Company Convertible Note”). The principal amount of this note, plus any accrued and unpaid interest at a rate of 8% per annum, shall be due and payable on August 5, 2020. The Ault & Company Convertible Note shall be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $1.45 per share, subject to the approval of the Company’s stockholders at a special meeting thereof, and subsequently, authorization from the NYSE American.

At the time of issuance of the Ault & Company Convertible Note, the closing price of the Company’s common stock was in excess of the conversion price, resulting in a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”). The BCF embedded in the Ault & Company Convertible Note is accounted for under ASC No. 470, Debt (“ASC 470”). At issuance, the intrinsic value of the BCF totaled $68,966, based on the difference between the effective conversion price and the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the commitment date of the transaction. The Company, however, is prohibited from issuing the shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the Ault & Company Convertible Note unless stockholder approval of such issuance of securities is obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules. The Company has not yet received stockholder approval of such share issuances. This provision resulted in a contingent BCF that shall be recognized once the contingency is resolved.

We moved to dismiss the Complaint, and on February 25, 2019, the Court granted our motion to dismiss, in its entirety, without prejudice, and also granted Plaintiffs leave to amend their Complaint. 

 

On March 11, 2019, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint asserting violations of breaches of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment claims based on the previously pled transactions (the “Amended Complaint”).

 

On March 25, 2019, we filed a motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint. On May 21, 2019, the Court granted in part, and denied part, our motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint. As previously announced, on February 24, 2020, the Company entered into a definitive settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Plaintiffs to settle the claims asserted in the Amended Complaint.

 

On April 15, 2020, the Court issued an Order (the “Order”) approving a Motion for Preliminary Approval of Settlement in the Derivative Action. Pursuant to the terms of the Order, the Board shall adopt and/or maintain certain resolutions and amendments to the Company’s committee charters and/or bylaws, to ensure adherence to certain corporate governance policies (collectively, the “Reforms”). The Order further provides that such Reforms shall remain in effect for a period of no less than five (5) years and shall be subject to any of the following: (a) a determination by a majority of the independent directors that the Reform is no longer in the best interest of the Company, including, but not limited to, due to circumstances making the Reforms no longer applicable, feasible, or available on commercially reasonable terms, or (b) modifications which the Company reasonably believes are required by applicable law or regulation.

 

In connection with the Settlement Agreement, the parties have agreed upon a payment of attorneys’ fees in the amount of $600,000, which sum shall be payable by our Director & Officer liability insurance. The Settlement Agreement contains no admission of wrongdoing.

 

We have always maintained and continue to believe that neither we nor our current or former directors engaged in any wrongdoing or otherwise committed any violation of federal or state securities laws or any other laws or regulations.

On the same day, our subsidiary also filed a partial Answer to the Complaint in connection with the breach of contract claim.

Notwithstanding, we have established a reserve in the amount of the unpaid portion of the purchase agreement. An unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

On May 4, 2020, we and Ault jointly filed a motion to dismiss the Complaint in its entirety, with prejudice.

 

The motion to dismiss is returnable before the Court on July 14, 2020.

An unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Subpoena

 

The Company received a subpoena from the SEC for the voluntary production of documents. The Company is fully cooperating with this non-public, fact-finding inquiry and Management believe that the Company has operated our business in compliance with all applicable laws. The subpoena expressly provides that the inquiry is not to be construed as an indication by the Commission or its staff that any violations of the federal securities laws have occurred, nor should it be considered a reflection upon any person, entity or security. However, there can be no assurance as to the outcome of this matter.

 

Other Litigation Matters

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, several non-trade creditors of the Company commenced litigation against the Company for payment of approximately $4.0 million of debt obligations not paid according to contractual terms. The Company has since repaid approximately $3.6 million of such debt obligations and entered into settlement agreements for the remaining amount of approximately $400,000 which are included within future receipts obligations in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2020. The Company also recorded an aggregate of approximately $450,000 of trade liabilities for judgments settled in favor of two trade creditors as of March 31, 2020 and is currently a defendant in several other claims made by trade creditors in which the maximum loss exposure is currently estimated to be approximately $350,000.  The outcome of any matters relating to unresolved trade credit obligations cannot be predicted at this time.

 

The Company is involved in litigation arising from other matters in the ordinary course of business. We are regularly subject to claims, suits, regulatory and government investigations, and other proceedings involving labor and employment, commercial disputes, and other matters. Such claims, suits, regulatory and government investigations, and other proceedings could result in fines, civil penalties, or other adverse consequences.

 

Certain of these outstanding matters include speculative, substantial or indeterminate monetary amounts. We record a liability when we believe that it is probable that a loss has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. If we determine that a loss is reasonably possible and the loss or range of loss can be estimated, we disclose the reasonably possible loss. We evaluate developments in our legal matters that could affect the amount of liability that has been previously accrued, and the matters and related reasonably possible losses disclosed, and make adjustments as appropriate. Significant judgment is required to determine both likelihood of there being and the estimated amount of a loss related to such matters.

 

With respect to our other outstanding matters, based on our current knowledge, we believe that the amount or range of reasonably possible loss will not, either individually or in aggregate, have a material adverse effect on our business, consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. However, the outcome of such matters is inherently unpredictable and subject to significant uncertainties.

25. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Paycheck Protection Program

 

In March 2020, U.S. lawmakers agreed on the passage of a $2 trillion stimulus bill called the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act to blunt the impact of an economic downturn set in motion by the global coronavirus pandemic. On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed the bill into law. The main driver of small business stimulus in the CARES Act is contained in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). PPP Loans may be used to cover payroll, benefits, and salaries, as well as interest payments, rent, and utilities. Fees are waived, and collateral and personal guarantees are not required. Payments are deferred for a minimum of six months, up to one year, and there are no prepayment penalties.

 

During April 2020, the Company received loans under the PPP in the principal amount of $715,101 and the Company’s majority owned subsidiary, Microphase, received loans in the principal amount of $467,333. The principal of the loan may be forgiven up to the total cost of payroll, mortgage interest payments, rent and utility payments made during the eight-week period after origination. In addition to meeting the size requirement (500 or fewer employees for most companies), the Company was required to demonstrate that its business had been negatively impacted by COVID-19.

 

Economic Injury Disaster Loan

 

On May 27, 2020, the Company received an Economic Injury Disaster Loan in the principal amount of $150,000 with an annual interest rate of 3.75%. The Company shall begin making principal and interest payments of $731 every month beginning on May 27, 2021. All remaining principal and interest is due and payable thirty years from the date of the note.

 

April 2020 Convertible Promissory Note

 

On April 13, 2020, the Company issued a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $100,000 with an interest rate of 10% per annum and a five-year warrant to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock equal to 50% of the number of shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the convertible promissory note, at an exercise price equal to $1.17 per share of common stock. The number of shares to be issued upon conversion of the note shall be equal to (x) the principal and accrued but unpaid interest due on the note being exchanged multiplied by 1.35, divided by (y) the closing bid price effective on date of conversion, provided, however, that the Company shall theretofore have obtained the approval of the issuance of the shares of common stock by the NYSE American. The total number of shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued to creditor in connection with the conversion of the note shall be adjusted based upon the VWAP of the Company’s common stock over the applicable pricing period. The amount of the adjustment shall be determined by dividing (x) the aggregate amount of principal and interest converted multiplied by 1.1, by (y) the greater of (I) seventy-five percent (75.0%) of the VWAP of the Company’s common stock over the applicable pricing period, or (II) $0.35 per share.

As previously disclosed, the Amended Complaint alleges violations including breaches of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment claims based on the previously pled transactions.

 

On April 15, 2020, the Court issued an Order (the “Order”) approving a Motion for Preliminary Approval of Settlement in the Derivative Action filed against DPW as a Nominal Defendant and its directors who served on its board of directors on July 31, 2018.

 

Under the terms of the Order approving the Agreement, the Board shall adopt and/or maintain resolutions and amendments to committee charters and/or the Company’s bylaws to ensure adherence to certain corporate governance policies (collectively, the “Reforms”), which shall remain in effect for no less than five (5) years, subject to any of the following: (a) a determination by a majority of the independent directors that the Reform is no longer in the best interest of the Company, including, but not limited to, due to circumstances making the Reform no longer applicable, feasible, or available on commercially reasonable terms, or (b) modifications which the Company reasonably believes are required by applicable law or regulation.

 

In connection with the Settlement Agreement, the parties have agreed upon a payment of attorneys’ fees in the amount of $600,000 payable by the Company’s Director & Officer liability insurance. The Settlement Agreement contains no admission of wrongdoing. The Company has always maintained and continues to believe that it did not engage in any wrongdoing or otherwise commit any violation of federal or state securities laws or other laws. While the Settlement Agreement has been preliminarily approved by the Court, there can be no assurance that the settlement will be finalized and approved by the Court or properly objected to by any shareholders and, even if approved, whether the conditions to closing will be satisfied, and the actual outcome of this matter may differ materially from the terms of the settlement described herein.

Other Matters

 

During the first quarter of 2020, we made the decision to discontinue the operations of Digital Farms and I. AM. On March 16, 2020, to try and mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus, San Diego County health officials issued orders mandating that all restaurants must end dine-in services. As a result of these temporary closures by the San Diego County health officials and the deteriorating business conditions at both our cryptocurrency mining and restaurant businesses, management concluded that discontinuing these operations was ultimately in our best interest. Although the Company has ceased operations at Digital Farms, since the assets and operations have not yet been abandoned, sold or distributed, these assets do not yet meet the requirement for presentation as discontinued operations. However, management determined that the permanent closing of the restaurant operations met the criteria for presentation as discontinued operations.

 

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) as a pandemic which continues to spread throughout the United States and the World.  The Company is monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and the related business and travel restrictions and changes to behavior intended to reduce its spread, and its impact on operations, financial position, cash flows, inventory, supply chains, customer purchasing trends, customer payments, and the industry in general, in addition to the impact on its employees. Due to the rapid development and fluidity of this situation, the magnitude and duration of the pandemic and its impact on the Company's operations and liquidity is uncertain as of the date of this report. 

 

However, the Company’s business has been disrupted and materially adversely affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Consequently, the Company is relying on the order issued by the SEC on March 25, 2020, providing an additional 45 days from the original due date to file this Form 10-Q. We are still assessing our business operations and system supports and the impact COVID-19 may have on our results and financial condition, but there can be no assurance that this analysis will enable us to avoid part or all of any impact from the spread of COVID-19 or its consequences, including downturns in business sentiment generally or in our sectors in particular.

 

Our operations are located in Alameda County, CA, Orange County, CA, Fairfield County, CT, the United Kingdom, Israel and members of our senior management work in Seattle, WA and New York, NY, which is also the location of the offices of the Company’s independent auditor. The Company has been following the recommendations of local health authorities to minimize exposure risk for its employees, including the temporary closures of its offices and having employees work remotely to the extent possible, which has to an extent adversely affected their efficiency.

 

GENERAL

 

As a holding company, our business strategy is designed to increase shareholder value. Under this strategy, we are focused on managing and financially supporting our existing subsidiaries and partner companies, with the goal of pursuing monetization opportunities and maximizing the value returned to shareholders. We have, are and will consider initiatives including, among others: public offerings, the sale of individual partner companies, the sale of certain or all partner company interests in secondary market transactions, or a combination thereof, as well as other opportunities to maximize shareholder value. We anticipate returning value to shareholders after satisfying our debt obligations and working capital needs.

 

From time to time, we engage in discussions with other companies interested in our subsidiaries or partner companies, either in response to inquiries or as part of a process we initiate. To the extent we believe that a subsidiary partner company’s further growth and development can best be supported by a different ownership structure or if we otherwise believe it is in our shareholders’ best interests, we will seek to sell some or all of our position in the subsidiary or partner company. These sales may take the form of privately negotiated sales of stock or assets, mergers and acquisitions, public offerings of the subsidiary or partner company’s securities and, in the case of publicly traded partner companies, sales of their securities in the open market. Our plans may include taking subsidiaries or partner companies public through rights offerings and directed share subscription programs. We will continue to consider these (or similar) programs and the sale of certain subsidiary or partner company interests in secondary market transactions to maximize value for our shareholders.

Revenues

 

Our revenues decreased by $160,110, or 2.8%, to $5,605,434 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, from $5,765,544 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease from the three months ended March 31, 2019, was due to a decrease in revenue from our commercial lending segment, attributed to a reduction in our loan portfolio and, to a lesser extent, our decision to cease operations at our cryptocurrency mining operations. We also experienced a decrease in revenue from our customized and flexible power system solutions for the commercial markets caused by temporary shortages in components required for the manufacture of these solutions. However, this decrease was offset by an increase in revenue from customized solutions for the military markets as we continue to experience the benefit of capital that was allocated to our defense business during the second half of 2019.

 

Revenues, cryptocurrency mining

 

In January 2018, we formed Digital Farms, Inc. (“Digital Farms”). Digital Farms was established to operate our cryptocurrency business, which was pursuing a variety of digital currencies. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, due to deteriorating business conditions in the cryptocurrency mining sector, the Company ceased operations at Digital Farms. The market prices of digital currencies have declined since the formation of Digital Farms which, due to power cost considerations, negatively affected the number of active miners we operated. These factors, coupled with a significant increase in the difficulty of mining blocks of cryptocurrency, led to our decision to cease cryptocurrency mining operations.

 

Gross Margins

 

Gross margins increased to 31.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to 16.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The Company’s gross margins have typically ranged between 33% and 37%, with slight variations depending on the overall composition of our revenue. Our gross margins during the three months ended March 31, 2020, of 31.3%, were affected by the negative margins on no revenues at Digital Farms. Excluding the effects of Digital Farms, then our adjusted gross margins for the three months ended March 31, 2020, would have been 33.0%, within our historical range.

 

Our gross margins of 16.3% recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2019, was also impacted by the negative margins at Digital Farms. Excluding the effects of Digital Farms, our adjusted gross margins for the three months ended March 31, 2019, would have been 28.9%, slightly less than our historical average as a result of lower revenues in our defense business to allocate manufacturing overhead during the quarter ended March 31, 2019

 

Engineering and Product Development

 

Engineering and product development expenses decreased by $15,052 to $440,626 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, from $455,678 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in engineering and product development expenses is due to various costs, none of which are significant individually.

 

Selling and Marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses were $338,163 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $417,622 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of $79,459. This decrease was the result of decreases in personnel costs directly attributed to a reduction in sales and marketing personnel throughout our operations.

 

General and Administrative

 

General and administrative expenses were $2,902,902 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $4,501,529 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, a decrease of $1,598,627. General and administrative expenses decreased from the comparative prior period, mainly due to lower stock compensation expense, forbearance fees and audit fees, which we did not incur until the quarter ended June 30, 2020 due to delays in the timing of our audit from COVID-19.

Provision for Credit Losses

 

Loans are generally carried at the amount of unpaid principal, adjusted for unearned loan fees and original issue discount, which are amortized over the term of the loan using the effective interest rate method. Interest on loans is accrued based on the principal amounts outstanding. During the year ended December 31, 2019 we determined that our investment in the convertible promissory notes of AVLP were impaired. At March 31, 2020, the Company determined that the fair value of the convertible promissory notes in AVLP was approximately $5,591,381, resulting in an increase in our provision for credit loss of $1,000,000.

 

Loss from Continuing Operations

 

The Company recorded a loss from continuing operations of $2,929,784 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to an operating loss of $4,433,612 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in operating loss is mostly attributable to an increase in our gross margins and the decrease in general and administrative expenses.

 

Interest Income

 

Interest income was $320 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to $836,927 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2020 is related to a decrease in interest income pursuant to the Loan and Security Agreement entered into on September 6, 2017, with AVLP, a related party. Due to the impaired status of the loan, no interest was recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense was $1,086,163 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to $2,099,541 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease in interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 is primarily related to a reduction of amortization of debt discount resulting from original issue discount from the issuance of warrants in conjunction with the sale of debt instruments. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, as a result of these issuances, non-cash interest expense of $677,022 and $1,491,065, respectively, was recorded from the amortization of debt discount and debt financing costs.

 

Net Loss from Discontinued Operations

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the permanent closing of the restaurant operations at I. AM, which owned and operated the Prep Kitchen brand restaurants located in the San Diego area, met the criteria for presentation as discontinued operations. We determined that the assets of I. AM, primarily consisting of restaurant equipment and right-of-use assets related to I. AM’s operating leases, were impaired in the amount of $1,525,316. These impairment charges represented the majority of our net loss from discontinued operations of $1,697,744 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The remaining increase in our net loss from discontinued operations is attributed to an overall decline in revenues at the restaurants and general inefficiencies during the final months of operations.

 

Net Loss

 

For the foregoing reasons, our net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020, was $6,531,548 compared to a net loss of $6,711,026 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. After taking into consideration the loss attributable to the non-controlling interest of the minority shareholders of Microphase during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, of nil and $32,416, respectively, and preferred dividends of $4,460 and $1,869, respectively, the net loss available to common shareholders during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, was $6,536,008 and $6,680,479, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, our reported net loss included non-cash charges of $2,582,684 and $2,411,977, respectively. A summary of these non-cash charges is as follows:

 

   For the Three Months Ended 
   March 31, 
   2020   2019 
Interest expense – debt discount  $677,022   $1,491,065 
Stock-based compensation   122,763    621,288 
Depreciation and amortization   258,232    961,438 
Impairment of property and equipment   1,525,316     
Accretion of original issue discount on notes receivable – related party   7,500    (612,309)
Accretion of original issue discount on notes receivable   (3,738)   (49,505)
Change in fair value of warrant liability   (4,411)    
Non-cash items included in net loss  $2,582,684   $2,411,977 

 

Other comprehensive income (loss)

 

Other comprehensive loss was $7,926,709 and $7,387,302, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. Other comprehensive loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020, which decreased our equity, was primarily due to unrealized losses in the warrant derivative securities that we received as a result of our investment in Avalanche International, Corp., or AVLP, a related party, and from fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the Israeli Shekel. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, unrealized losses in the warrant derivative securities of AVLP was the primary component of other comprehensive loss.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

On March 31, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $626,337. This compares with cash and cash equivalents of $483,383 at December 31, 2019. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to cash provided by financing activities with the remaining variance attributed to fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the Israeli Shekel.

 

Net cash used in operating activities totaled $1,115,954 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $2,169,632 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the decrease in net cash used in operating activities compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019, was mainly due to several non-cash charges, a decrease in amortization of debt discount of $814,043, stock-based compensation of $498,525, and depreciation and amortization of $703,206, and an increase in our provision for loan losses of $1,000,000.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $101,976 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to $965,425 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The decrease of the net usage of cash from investing activities was primarily attributed to a decrease in related party investments.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $1,271,690 and $3,709,501 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily related to proceeds from notes payable and short-term advances, related party. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the financing activities primarily related to the sale of shares of common stock through our at-the-market offering, net proceeds from the Company’s debt financings and from advances on future receipts.

 

Historically, we have financed our operations principally through issuances of convertible debt, promissory notes and equity securities. During 2020, as reflected below, we continued to successfully obtain additional equity and debt financing and in restructuring existing debt.

 

·On February 10, 2020, we entered into a Master Exchange Agreement with Esousa, which acquired approximately $4.2 million dollars in principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of certain promissory notes that had been previously issued by the Company. Esousa also agreed to purchase additional notes up to an additional principal amount, plus accrued but unpaid interest, of $3.5 million (collectively, the “Notes”). Pursuant to the Master Exchange Agreement, Esousa has the unilateral right to acquire shares of the Company’s common stock in exchange for the Notes. We anticipate the second exchange to acquire an additional $3.5 million of certain promissory notes if the Company receives stockholder approval at a special meeting thereof for the Master Exchange Agreement, and subsequently, authorization from the NYSE American. This special meeting is presently scheduled to occur on July 8, 2020.

 

 

6

 
 

 

We expect to continue incurring losses for the foreseeable future and will be required to raise additional capital to continue to support our working capital requirements. We have been successful over the last 12 months in raising capital to support our working capital requirements. We anticipate that we will continue to raise capital through public and private equity offerings, debt financings, or other means. If we are unable to secure additional capital, we may be required to curtail our current operations and take additional measures to reduce costs expenses, including reducing our workforce, eliminating outside consultants, ceasing or reducing our due diligence of potential future acquisitions, including the associated legal fees, in order to conserve cash in order to sustain operations and meet our obligations.

 

Based on the above, these matters raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern and amounts reported in our financial statements do not reflect the effects of any adjustments to the carrying amounts of our assets and liabilities should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

In our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, we identified the critical accounting policies which affect our more significant estimates and assumptions used in preparing our consolidated financial statements.  The basis for developing the estimates and assumptions within our critical accounting policies is based on historical information and known current trends and factors.  The estimates and assumptions are evaluated on an ongoing basis and actual results have been within our expectations.  We have not changed these policies from those previously disclosed in our Annual Report.

 

ITEM 3.QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable for a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, with the assistance of other members of the Company's management, have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based upon our evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer has concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because the Company has not yet completed its remediation of the material weakness previously identified and disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, the end of its most recent fiscal year.

 

Specifically, management has determined that we do not have sufficient resources to ensure an appropriate level of segregation of duties in our accounting function, we have inadequate controls to ensure that information necessary to properly record transactions is adequately communicated and we did not design or maintain effective general information technology controls over certain information systems that are relevant to the mitigation of the risk pertaining to the misappropriation of assets.

 

 

7

 
 

 

A material weakness is a control deficiency (within the meaning of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Auditing Standard No. 2) or combination of control deficiencies that result in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

 

Planned Remediation

 

Management, in coordination with the input, oversight and support of our Audit Committee, has identified the measures below to strengthen our control environment and internal control over financial reporting.

 

In January 2018, we hired a new Chief Financial Officer and engaged the services of a financial accounting advisory firm. In September 2018, we hired a Chief Accounting Officer and in January 2019, we hired a Senior Vice President of Finance. Finally, in May 2019, we hired an Executive Vice President and General Counsel. We have tasked these individuals with expanding and monitoring the Company’s internal controls, to provide an additional level of review of complex financial issues and to assist with financial reporting. On October 7, 2019, we created an Executive Committee comprised of our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President and General Counsel. The Executive Committee meets on a daily basis to address the Company’s critical needs and provides a forum to approve transactions. Further, as we continue to expand our internal accounting department, the Chairman of the Audit Committee shall perform the following:

 

·assists with documentation and implementation of policies and procedures and monitoring of controls,

 

·reviews all anticipated transactions that are not considered in the ordinary course of business to assist in the early identification of accounting issues and ensure that appropriate disclosures are made in the Company’s financial statements

 

We are currently working to improve and simplify our internal processes and implement enhanced controls, as discussed above, to address the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting and to remedy the ineffectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures. These material weaknesses will not be considered to be remediated until the applicable remediated controls are operating for a sufficient period of time and management has concluded, through testing, that these controls are operating effectively.

 

Despite the existence of these material weaknesses, the Company believes that the consolidated financial statements included in the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q fairly present, in all material respects, the Company's financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. 

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting.

 

Except as detailed above, during the most recent fiscal quarter 2020 there were no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1.LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Derivative Action

 

On July 31, 2018, Ethan Young and Greg Young (collectively, “Plaintiffs”) filed a stockholder derivative complaint (the “Complaint”) in the United States District Court for the Central District of California (the “Court”) against the Company as the nominal defendant, as well as its current directors and a former director, in action captioned, Ethan Young and Greg Young, Derivatively on Behalf of Nominal Defendant, DPW Holdings, Inc. v. Milton C. Ault, III, Amos Kohn, William B. Horne, Jeff Bentz, Mordechai Rosenberg, Robert O. Smith, and Kristine Ault and DPW Holdings, Inc., as the nominal defendant, Case No. 18-cv-6587 (the “Derivative Action”).

 

 

8

 
 

 

The Complaint alleged violations of state law and breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and gross mismanagement by the individual defendants, in connection with various transactions entered into by us.

 

We moved to dismiss the Complaint, and on February 25, 2019, the Court granted our motion to dismiss, in its entirety, without prejudice, and also granted Plaintiffs leave to amend their Complaint. 

 

On March 11, 2019, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint asserting violations of breaches of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment claims based on the previously pled transactions (the “Amended Complaint”).

 

On March 25, 2019, we filed a motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint. On May 21, 2019, the Court granted in part, and denied part, our motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint. As previously announced, on February 24, 2020, the Company entered into a definitive settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Plaintiffs to settle the claims asserted in the Amended Complaint.

 

On April 15, 2020, the Court issued an Order (the “Order”) approving a Motion for Preliminary Approval of Settlement in the Derivative Action. Pursuant to the terms of the Order, the Board shall adopt and/or maintain certain resolutions and amendments to the Company’s committee charters and/or bylaws, to ensure adherence to certain corporate governance policies (collectively, the “Reforms”). The Order further provides that such Reforms shall remain in effect for a period of no less than five (5) years and shall be subject to any of the following: (a) a determination by a majority of the independent directors that the Reform is no longer in the best interest of the Company, including, but not limited to, due to circumstances making the Reforms no longer applicable, feasible, or available on commercially reasonable terms, or (b) modifications which the Company reasonably believes are required by applicable law or regulation.

 

In connection with the Settlement Agreement, the parties have agreed upon a payment of attorneys’ fees in the amount of $600,000, which sum shall be payable by our Director & Officer liability insurance. The Settlement Agreement contains no admission of wrongdoing.

 

We have always maintained and continue to believe that neither we nor our current or former directors engaged in any wrongdoing or otherwise committed any violation of federal or state securities laws or any other laws or regulations.

 

Although the Settlement Agreement has been preliminarily approved by the Court, there can be no assurance that the settlement will be finalized and approved by the Court or that the Settlement Agreement will be properly objected to by any of our shareholders and, even if approved, whether the conditions to closing will be satisfied, and the actual outcome of this matter may differ materially from the terms of the settlement described herein.

 

Blockchain Mining Supply and Services, Ltd.

 

On November 28, 2018, Blockchain Mining Supply and Services, Ltd. (“Blockchain Mining”) a vendor who sold computers to our subsidiary, filed a Complaint (the “Complaint”) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against us and our subsidiary, Super Crypto Mining, Inc., in an action captioned Blockchain Mining Supply and Services, Ltd. v. Super Crypto Mining, Inc. and DPW Holdings, Inc., Case No. 18-cv-11099.

 

The Complaint asserts claims for breach of contract and promissory estoppel against the us and our subsidiary arising from the subsidiary’s alleged failure to honor its obligations under the purchase agreement. The Complaint seeks monetary damages in excess of $1,388,495, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.

 

We believe that these claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend them.

On April 13, 2020, we and our subsidiary, jointly filed a motion to dismiss the Complaint in its entirety as against us, and the promissory estoppel claim as against our subsidiary. On the same day, our subsidiary also filed a partial Answer to the Complaint in connection with the breach of contract claim.

 

On April 29, 2020, Blockchain Mining filed an amended complaint (the “Amended Complaint”). The Amended Complaint asserts the same causes of action and seeks the same damages as the initial Complaint.

 

On May 13, 2020, we and our subsidiary, jointly filed a motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint in its entirety as against us, and the promissory estoppel claim as against of our subsidiary. On the same day, our subsidiary also filed a partial Answer to the Amended Complaint in connection with the breach of contract claim.

 

Based on our assessment of the facts underlying the claims, the uncertainty of litigation, and the preliminary stage of the case, we cannot reasonably estimate the potential loss or range of loss that may result from this action. Notwithstanding, we have established a reserve in the amount of the unpaid portion of the purchase agreement. An unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Ding Gu (a/k/a Frank Gu) and Xiaodan Wang Litigation

 

On January 17, 2020, Ding Gu (a/k/a Frank Gu) (“Gu”) and Xiaodan Wang (“Wang” and with “Gu” collectively, “Plaintiffs”), filed a Complaint (the “Complaint”) in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York against us and our Chief Executive Officer, Milton C. Ault, III, in an action captioned Ding Gu (a/k/a Frank Gu) and Xiaodan Wang v. DPW Holdings, Inc. and Milton C. Ault III (a/k/a Milton Todd Ault III a/k/a Todd Ault), Index No. 650438/2020.

 

The Complaint asserts causes of action for declaratory judgment, specific performance, breach of contract, conversion, attorneys’ fees, permanent injunction, enforcement of Guaranty, unjust enrichment, money had and received, and fraud arising from: (i) a series of transactions entered into between Gu and us, as well as Gu and Ault, in or about May 2019; and (ii) a term sheet entered into between Plaintiffs and DPW, in or about July 2019. The Complaint seeks, among other things, monetary damages in excess of $1,100,000, plus a decree of specific performance directing DPW to deliver unrestricted shares of DPW’s common stock to Gu, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.

 

We believe that these claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend them.

 

On May 4, 2020, we and Ault, jointly filed a motion to dismiss the Complaint in its entirety, with prejudice.

 

The motion to dismiss is returnable before the Court on July 14, 2020.

 

Based on our assessment of the facts underlying the above claims, the uncertainty of litigation, and the preliminary stage of the case, we cannot reasonably estimate the potential loss or range of loss that may result from this action. An unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Subpoena

 

The Company received a subpoena from the SEC for the voluntary production of documents. The Company is fully cooperating with this non-public, fact-finding inquiry and Management believe that the Company has operated our business in compliance with all applicable laws. The subpoena expressly provides that the inquiry is not to be construed as an indication by the Commission or its staff that any violations of the federal securities laws have occurred, nor should it be considered a reflection upon any person, entity or security. However, there can be no assurance as to the outcome of this matter.

Other Litigation Matters

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, several non-trade creditors of the Company commenced litigation against the Company for payment of approximately $4.0 million of debt obligations not paid according to contractual terms. The Company has since repaid approximately $3.6 million of such debt obligations and entered into settlement agreements for the remaining amount of approximately $400,000 which are included within future receipts obligations in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2020. The Company also recorded an aggregate of approximately $450,000 of trade liabilities for judgments settled in favor of two trade creditors as of March 31, 2020 and is currently a defendant in several other claims made by trade creditors in which the maximum loss exposure is currently estimated to be approximately $350,000.  The outcome of any matters relating to unresolved trade credit obligations cannot be predicted at this time.

 

The Company is involved in litigation arising from other matters in the ordinary course of business. We are regularly subject to claims, suits, regulatory and government investigations, and other proceedings involving labor and employment, commercial disputes, and other matters. Such claims, suits, regulatory and government investigations, and other proceedings could result in fines, civil penalties, or other adverse consequences.

 

Certain of these outstanding matters include speculative, substantial or indeterminate monetary amounts. We record a liability when we believe that it is probable that a loss has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. If we determine that a loss is reasonably possible and the loss or range of loss can be estimated, we disclose the reasonably possible loss. We evaluate developments in our legal matters that could affect the amount of liability that has been previously accrued, and the matters and related reasonably possible losses disclosed, and make adjustments as appropriate. Significant judgment is required to determine both likelihood of there being and the estimated amount of a loss related to such matters.

 

With respect to our other outstanding matters, based on our current knowledge, we believe that the amount or range of reasonably possible loss will not, either individually or in aggregate, have a material adverse effect on our business, consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. However, the outcome of such matters is inherently unpredictable and subject to significant uncertainties. 

 

ITEM 1A.RISK FACTORS

 

The risks described in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K, could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations, and the trading price of our common stock could decline. These risk factors do not identify all risks that we face - our operations could also be affected by factors that are not presently known to us or that we currently consider to be immaterial to our operations. Due to risks and uncertainties, known and unknown, our past financial results may not be a reliable indicator of future performance and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results or trends in future periods. The Risk Factors section of our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K remains current in all material respects.

 

ITEM 2.UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

During March 2020, the Company issued 65,000 shares of its common stock as payment for services to its consultants. The shares were valued at $73,450, an average of $1.13 per share.

 

On December 23, 2019, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Ault & Company. Pursuant to the terms of this agreement, Ault & Company agreed to purchase an aggregate of 660,667 shares of the Company’s common stock for a total purchase price of $739,948 at a purchase price per share of $1.12, subject to the approval of the NYSE American. The sale was authorized by the NYSE American on January 15, 2020. As a result, at the closing on January 15, 2020, Ault & Company became the beneficial owner of 666,945 shares of Common Stock.

 

On March 4, 2020, pursuant to the terms of the securities purchase agreement for the sale of the Dominion short-term promissory note, the Company issued to Dominion 12,500 shares of its common stock (see Note 17).

 

 

11

 
 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, principal and accrued interest of $1,171,960 and $809,455, respectively, on the Company’s debt securities was satisfied through the issuance of 1,345,164 shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

The foregoing issuances were exempt from registration upon reliance of Section 4(a)(2) and Regulation D promulgated thereunder.

 

ITEM 3.DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES

 

On June 18, 2019, we issued a promissory note in the principal face amount of $2,900,000. Pursuant to the terms of the note, we were required to make six monthly amortization payments beginning on July 18, 2019. We have not made these payments and this note is currently in default. This promissory note was acquired by Esousa on February 10, 2020, pursuant to the terms of the Master Exchange Agreement. If we receive stockholder approval at a special meeting being held on July 8, 2020, Esousa will have the unilateral right to acquire shares of our common stock in exchange for this note.
