SOLARWINDOW TECHNOLOGIES, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 – Basis of Presentation, Organization and Going Concern

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The unaudited financial statements of SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) as of November 30, 2018, and for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States for interim financial reporting and include the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, Kinetic Energy Corporation (“KEC”), and New Energy Solar Corporation (“New Energy Solar”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended August 31, 2018, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as part of the Company’s Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial information have been included. The Company did not record an income tax provision during the periods presented due to net taxable losses. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the entire year.

 

Organization

 

SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Nevada on May 5, 1998, under the name “Octillion Corp.” On December 2, 2008, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to effect a change of name to New Energy Technologies, Inc. Effective as of March 9, 2015, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. to align the company name with its brand identity, SolarWindow™. Products derived from the Company’s SolarWindow™ technology are intended to harvest light energy from the sun and artificial sources and generate electricity from a transparent coating of organic photovoltaic (“OPV”) solar cells, applied to glass and plastics, thereby creating a “photovoltaic” effect. The Company’s ticker symbol changed to WNDW.

 

Until the fourth quarter of the 2015 fiscal year, the Company was developing two sustainable electricity generating systems. These novel technologies are branded as SolarWindow™ and MotionPower™. On March 2, 2015, the Company announced its exclusive focus on SolarWindow™.

 

The Company’s SolarWindow™ technology harvests light energy from the sun and artificial sources to generate electricity from a transparent coating of organic photovoltaic solar cells applied to glass or plastics, creating a “photovoltaic” effect. Photovoltaics are best known as “solar panels” providing a method to generate electricity using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into a flow of electrons. Conventional PV power is generated by solar modules composed of interconnected mono- or poly-crystalline cells containing PV and electricity-conducting materials. These materials are usually opaque (i.e., not see-through) and only effectively generate electricity with sun light. The Company’s researchers have replaced these materials with a very thin layer of specially developed compounds that allow our SolarWindow™ technology to remain see-through or “transparent,” while generating electricity when exposed to either sun or artificial light. SolarWindow™ coatings are capable of generating electricity when exposed to direct, diffused, filtered, low, or reflected natural or artificial light.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company does not have any commercialized products, has not generated any revenue since inception and has sustained recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations since inception. Due to the “start-up” nature of our business, we expect to incur losses as we continue development of our products and technologies. On November 26, 2018, the Company completed a self-directed offering resulting in $19,800,000 of proceeds. Simultaneously, the 2013 Note and March 2015 Loan were converted in the amount of $5,200,000, including outstanding debt principal and unpaid interest. As of November 30, 2018, the Company had approximately $19,962,000 of cash on hand and current liabilities of $160,827. The Company believes that, as a result of the recent financing, it currently has sufficient cash to meet its funding requirements over the next twelve months following the issuance of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. However, the Company has experienced and continues to experience negative cash flows from operations, as well as an ongoing requirement for substantial additional capital investment. The Company expects that it may need to raise additional capital to accomplish its business plan over the next several years. If additional funding is required, the Company expects to seek to obtain that funding through private equity or convertible debt. There can be no assurance as to the availability or terms upon which such financing and capital might be available.

NOTE 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

Kinetic Energy Corporation was incorporated on June 19, 2008, in the State of Nevada and holds the patents related to the Company’s MotionPower™ technology. The Company’s business activities related to the MotionPower™ technology are conducted through KEC.

 

New Energy Solar was incorporated on February 9, 2009, in the State of Florida and entered into agreements with The University of South Florida Research Foundation (“USF”) to sponsor research related to the Company’s SolarWindow™ technology. On February 18, 2015, the Company terminated the license agreement entered into with USF which originated on June 21, 2010.

 

These consolidated financial statements presented are those of SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, KEC, and New Energy Solar. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and use assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by management’s application of accounting policies. On an on-going basis, the Company evaluates its estimates. Actual results and outcomes may differ materially from these estimates and assumptions.

 

Equipment

 

Fixed assets are carried at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Major improvements are capitalized, while repair and maintenance are expensed when incurred. Renewals and betterments that materially extend the life of the assets are capitalized. When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gain or loss is reflected for the period.

 

Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the related assets. The estimated useful lives of depreciable assets are:

 

Estimated

Useful Lives

Computers

3 years

Equipment

5 years

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company measures fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the reporting date. The Company utilizes a three-tier hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value:

 

Level 1. Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that an entity has the ability to access. The Company has no assets or liabilities measured and recorded on a recurring or nonrecurring basis with Level 1 inputs.

 

Level 2. Valuations based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. The Company has no assets or liabilities measured and recorded on a recurring or nonrecurring basis with Level 2 inputs.

 

Level 3. Valuations based on inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. The Company has no assets or liabilities measured and recorded on a recurring or nonrecurring basis with Level 3 inputs.

Table of Contents

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and interest payable approximate their fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments and their liquidity. It is not practical to determine the fair value of the Company’s notes payable due to the complex terms. Management is of the opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant interest or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

 

Research and Product Development

 

Research and product development costs represent costs incurred to develop the Company’s technology, including salaries and benefits for research and development personnel, allocated overhead and facility occupancy costs, supplies, equipment purchase and repair and other costs. Research and product development costs are expensed when incurred, except for nonrefundable advance payments for future research and development activities which are capitalized and recognized as expense as the related services are performed.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Share

 

The computation of basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is based on the weighted average number of shares that were outstanding during the period, including shares of common stock that are issuable at the end of the reporting period. The computation of diluted EPS is based on the number of basic weighted-average shares outstanding plus the number of common shares that would be issued assuming the exercise of all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding using the treasury stock method. The computation of diluted net income per share does not assume conversion, exercise or contingent issuance of securities that would have an antidilutive effect on earnings per share. Therefore, when calculating EPS if the Company experienced a loss, there is no inclusion of dilutive securities as their inclusion in the EPS calculation is antidilutive. Furthermore, options and warrants will have a dilutive effect under the treasury stock method only when the average market price of the common stock during the period exceeds the exercise price of the options or warrants (they are in the money). See “NOTE 7 - Net Loss Per Share” for further discussion.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In July 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2017-11, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). The amendments in Part I of this Update change the classification analysis of certain equity-linked financial instruments (or embedded features) with down round features. When determining whether certain financial instruments should be classified as liabilities or equity instruments, a down round feature no longer precludes equity classification when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The amendments also clarify existing disclosure requirements for equity-classified instruments. As a result, a free-standing equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded conversion option) no longer would be accounted for as a derivative liability at fair value as a result of the existence of a down round feature. For freestanding equity classified financial instruments, the amendments require entities that present earnings per share (EPS) in accordance with Topic 260 to recognize the effect of the down round feature when it is triggered. That effect is treated as a dividend and as a reduction of income available to common shareholders in basic EPS. Convertible instruments with embedded conversion options that have down round features are now subject to the specialized guidance for contingent beneficial conversion features (in Subtopic 470-20, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options), including related EPS guidance (in Topic 260). The amendments in Part II of this Update recharacterize the indefinite deferral of certain provisions of Topic 480 that now are presented as pending content in the Codification, to a scope exception. Those amendments do not have a material accounting effect. For public business entities, the amendments in Part I of this Update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. If an entity early adopts the amendments in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. The Company adopted ASU No. 2017-11 at the beginning of the current fiscal year with no impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

Table of Contents

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Scope of Modification Accounting. The amendments in this Update provide guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. The amendments in this Update are effective for all entities for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in any interim period, for public business entities for reporting periods for which financial statements have not yet been issued. The Company adopted ASU 2017-09 at the beginning of the current fiscal year with no impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842)”, which supersedes ASC Topic 840, Leases, and creates a new topic, ASC 842, Leases. The new guidance requires the recognition of lease assets and liabilities for operating leases with terms of more than 12 months. Presentation of leases within the consolidated statements of operations and consolidated statements of cash flows will be generally consistent with the current lease accounting guidance. The ASU is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company early adopted ASU No. 2016-02 at the beginning of the current fiscal year with no impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

The Company reviews new accounting pronouncements as issued. Although some of these accounting standards issued or effective after the end of the Company’s previous fiscal year may be applicable, the Company has not identified any standards that the Company believes merit further discussion. The Company believes that none of the new standards will have a significant impact on the financial statements.

March 2015 Loan as Amended

 

On March 4, 2015, the Company entered into a Bridge Loan Agreement with 1420468 Alberta Ltd. (which has since been merged with and into Kalen Capital Corporation, a British Columbia corporation wholly-owned by our Chairman, Harmel S. Rayat (the “Investor”)). Pursuant the Bridge Loan Agreement, the Company borrowed $600,000 at an annual interest rate of 7% (the “March 2015 Loan”), compounded quarterly, with a default rate of 15%.

 

On November 3, 2017, the Company entered into the Third Amendment related to the March 2015 Loan pursuant to which the Company and the Investor amended the March 2015 loan to extend the maturity date to December 31, 2019. As consideration for the note extension, the interest rate was increased to 10.5%. On November 26, 2018, $798,566 of the March 2015 Loan was converted in exchange for 532,377 Units pursuant to the November 2018 Private Placement except for $7,922 of accrued interest which the Company agreed to repay from proceeds from the November 2018 Private Placement, See “Note 4 – Private Placements” for additional information.

 

During the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recognized $19,691 and $14,436, respectively, of interest expense.

2013 Note as Amended

 

On October 7, 2013, the Company sold to the Investor an unsecured Convertible Promissory Note (the “2013 Note”) in the amount of $3,000,000 with 7% interest compounded quarterly. According to the terms of the amended 2013 Note, the Investor may elect to convert principal and accrued interest into units of the Company’s equity securities, with each Unit consisting of (a) one share of common stock; and (b) one Stock Purchase Warrant for the purchase of one share of common stock. The conversion price for each Unit is the lesser of (i) $1.37; or (ii) 70% of the 20 day average closing price of the Company’s common stock prior to conversion, subject to a floor of $1.00 with the exercise price of each Warrant being equal to 60% of the 20 day average closing price of the Company’s common stock prior to conversion. On November 26, 2018, $4,401,434 of the 2013 Note was converted in exchange for 2,934,290 Units pursuant to the November 2018 Private Placement except for $44,260 of accrued interest which the Company agreed to repay from proceeds from the November 2018 Private Placement, See “Note 4 – Private Placements” for additional information.

 

On November 3, 2017, the Company entered into the Third Amendment related to the 2013 Note pursuant to which the Company and the Investor amended the 2013 Note to extend the maturity date to December 31, 2019. As consideration for the note extension, the interest rate was increased to 10.5% and all outstanding warrants held by the Investor had their maturity date extended to December 31, 2022, resulting in an additional debt discount of $1,074,265 as of November 3, 2017. The modification did not result in a gain or loss due to the related party nature of the transaction.

 

During the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recognized $108,547 and $79,580, respectively, of interest expense. During the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recognized $663,918 and $345,147, respectively, of debt discount accretion. The full $663,918 of the remaining debt discount balance related to warrant expiration date extensions was amortized in total due to the conversion of the notes as described above.

 

NOTE 4 – Private Placements

 

November 2018 Private Placement

 

On November 26, 2018, the Company completed a self-directed offering (the “November 2018 Private Placement”) to accredited investors of 16,666,667 units of the Company’s equity securities (each a “Unit” and collectively, the “Units”) at a price of $1.50 per Unit with each Unit comprised of (a) one share of unregistered common stock; and (b) one warrant to purchase one share of common stock at a price, subject to certain adjustments, of $1.70 per share for a period of seven (7) years (the “Series T Warrant”). The Unit price represents an approximately 20% discount to the closing price of the Company's common stock on October 29, 2018, the date the Investor and the Board agreed to enter into a significant financing arrangement. Pursuant to the November 2018 Private Placement, the Company issued 13,200,000 Units in exchange for cash of $19,800,000 and 3,466,667 Units for the conversion of $5,200,000 of the principal and unpaid interest owed under the 2013 Note and the March 2015 Loan. The interest payable remaining under the notes totals $52,182, which the Company agreed to repay from proceeds received under the November 2018 Private Placement. Of the 13,200,000 Units issued in exchange for cash, Kalen Capital Corporation purchased 13,100,000 Units.

 

The Series T Warrants were accounted for pursuant to ASC 470-20-25-2. The relative fair value of the common stock was estimated to be $13,687,151. The relative fair value of the Series T Warrants was estimated to be $11,312,849 as determined based on the relative fair value allocation of the proceeds received. The Series T Warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes option pricing model using the following variables: market price of common stock - $2.94 per share; estimated volatility – 85.85%; 7-year risk free interest rate – 2.97%; expected dividend rate - 0% and expected life - 7 years.

NOTE 6 - Stock Options

 

Stock option grants pursuant to the 2006 Plan vest either immediately or over one to five years and expire ten years after the date of grant. Stockholders previously approved 5,000,000 shares for grant under the 2006 Plan, of which 2,570,085 remain available for grant, 1,305,001 have been exercised in total with 629,677 net shares (due to the cashless exercise feature) issued pursuant to such exercises of vested options from inception of the 2006 Plan through August 31, 2018. All shares approved for grant and subsequently forfeited are available for future grant. The Company does not repurchase shares to fulfill the requirements of options that are exercised and therefore issues new shares when options are exercised. The 2006 Plan was approved by stockholders on February 7, 2011 and expires according to its terms on February 7, 2021.

The aggregate intrinsic value in the table above represents the total pretax intrinsic value for all “in-the-money” options (i.e. the difference between the Company’s closing stock price on the last trading day of the period covered by this report and the exercise price, multiplied by the number of shares) that would have been received by the option holders had all in-the-money option holders exercised their vested options on November 30, 2018. The intrinsic value of the option changes based upon the fair market value of the Company’s common stock. Since the closing stock price was $3.59 on November 30, 2018 and only 42,500 outstanding options have an exercise price below $3.59 per share, as of November 30, 2018, there is $6,875 of intrinsic value to the Company’s outstanding, in-the-money stock options.

 

Three Months Ended November 30, 2018

 

Due to his resignation from the Board of Directors on October 22, 2018, Joseph Sierchio forfeited 20,000 unvested stock options with an exercise price of $4.87 which resulted in the Company reversing previously recorded stock compensation expense related to the vesting of said options in the amount of $58,367.

 

The following table sets forth the share-based compensation cost resulting from stock option grants, including those previously granted and vesting over time, that were recorded in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017:

NOTE 7 - Net Loss Per Share

 

During the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company recorded a net loss. Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. The Company has not included the effects of warrants, stock options and convertible debt on net loss per share because to do so would be antidilutive.

 

Following is the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended November 30, 2018 and 2017:

On August 2, 2017, we entered into a Process Integration and Production Agreement with TriView Glass Industries, LLC (“Triview”). Triview is a glass fabricator operating a manufacturing facility in City of Industry, California. The purpose and primary goals of agreement are to:

 

 

1. establish commercial scale manufacturing methodologies and processes to fabricate products based on WNDW technologies, and

 

 

 

 

2. integrate SolarWindow™ process technologies into the Triview manufacturing process, to fabricate specific transparent electricity-generating SolarWindow™ Products.

 

The Company has validated our SolarWindow™ coatings rigorous autoclave system for window glass lamination at Triview. Layered with SolarWindow™ electricity-generating liquid coatings, glass modules were subjected to the extremely high heat and pressure of autoclave equipment located at the fabricator’s facility. Despite the SolarWindow™ modules being subjected to the harsh pressure and temperature conditions, subsequent performance testing confirmed that the modules continued to produce power. This is an important milestone for the commercialization of SolarWindow products, showing that our PV layers are compatible with autoclave production equipment.

 

We have achieved numerous important milestones and overcome major technical challenges in the development of our SolarWindow™ technology, including the ability to generate electricity on glass while remaining transparent and the application of our coatings on to glass at room temperature and pressure.

 

A brief list of some of our important milestones includes:

 

 

· SolarWindow has been awarded a Grant by the U.S. Department of Energy, for Advanced Manufacturing. The Company was awarded the CRADA after submitting a proposal outlining its process technologies and fabrication methods to the DOE’s Roll-to-Roll Advanced Materials Manufacturing Consortium, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and partnering with Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The CRADA is being carried out with the DOE by SolarWindow, ANL, and NREL.

 

 

 

 

· the Company has set a new performance record for power efficiency with a 34% increase in performance over previous generations of its transparent electricity-generating glass. Performance results are based on independent testing and certification of SolarWindow™ devices by NREL’s Device Performance Measurement Laboratory;

 

 

 

 

· our SolarWindow™ transparent electricity-generating glass modules were successfully processed through the rigorous autoclave system for window glass lamination at a commercial window fabricator;

 

 

 

 

· successfully completed important freeze/thaw performance testing necessary for the commercialization of our transparent electricity-generating coatings; modules were subjected to more than 200 freeze/thaw cycles, which yielded favorable performance results of the edge sealing processes and minimal impact on the device electrical performance;

 

 

 

 

· expanded product development and successfully applied our electricity-generating coatings onto flexible glass – as thin as a business card (only 0.1-millimeter-thick) – that is flexible enough to be bent without breaking or cracking;

 

 

 

 

· entered into the NREL CRADA which is still in effect;
 

 
17
 
Table of Contents

 

 

· filed over sixty (60) U. S. and international patent and thirty (30) trademark applications for our electricity-generating coating and SolarWindow™ technology development efforts;

 

 

 

 

· expanded the use of our SolarWindow™ coatings to include two new product lines for commercial and military aircraft, and the safety and security of military pilots;

 

 

 

 

· generated electricity on flexible plastic using novel see-through SolarWindow™ coatings;

 

 

 

 

· developed new SolarWindow™ coatings with increased transparency and improved color;

 

 

 

 

· produced the largest OPV device ever fabricated at NREL in the institute’s history;

 

 

 

 

· successfully collected and transported electricity using a virtually ‘invisible’ conductive wiring system developed for SolarWindow™;

 

We are currently developing “SolarWindow™ Products” derived from our SolarWindow™ technology designed to address several potential markets, including:

 

 

· SolarWindow™ – Commercial – A flat glass product for installation in new commercial towers under construction and replacement windows;

 

 

 

 

· SolarWindow™ – Structural Glass – Structural glass walls and curtains for tall structures;

 

 

 

 

· SolarWindow™– Architectural Glass – Textured and decorative interior glass walls, room dividers, etc.;

 

 

 

 

SolarWindow™ – Residential – A window glass for installation in new residential homes under construction and replacement windows;

 

 

 

 

· SolarWindow™ – Flex – Flexible films which may be applied directly to different surfaces; and

 

 

 

 

· SolarWindow™ Retrofit Veneer - Transparent, tinted, and flexible veneers that installers can apply directly on to existing, previously installed, window glass.

 

In addition to SolarWindow™-Commercial, Structural, and Architectural products, we are also developing SolarWindow™ Retrofit Veneer products as transparent, tinted, flexible and rigid veneers that installers can apply directly over the inside of existing windows. This expanded product line broadens our market reach beyond new and replacement installations, to include windows currently installed on the estimated five million commercial buildings constructed in the U.S. alone. As noted, the SolarWindow™ Retrofit Veneer products will be developed concurrently with the other SolarWindow™ products currently under development.

 

We also developed the capability to integrate transparent SolarWindow™ coatings on to (very thin) flexible glass. This presents new product opportunities for curved and non-flat surfaces in automotive, aircraft, and military applications.

 

Our product development efforts have produced early working prototypes for these applications, which we are sharing with potential commercialization partners, who will work along-side us to ascertain whether the SolarWindowTM technology can form the basis for a commercially viable technology or product and which products will be first to market.

Table of Contents

 

We plan to market any SolarWindow™ Products we commercialize through co-marketing and co-promotion, licensing, and distribution arrangements with third party collaborators, such as Triview, to advance the technical development and subsequent commercialization of our SolarWindow™ products. We are actively seeking additional technology and product licensing, joint venture arrangements, and manufacturing process integration relationships with commercial partners and industry; and organizations which have established technical competencies, market reach, and mature distribution networks in the solar PV, building-integrated PV, and alternative and renewable energy market industries. We believe that this approach could provide immediate access to existing distribution channels which can increase market penetration and commercial acceptance of our products, and enable us to avoid expending significant funds for development of a large sales and marketing organization. We have not yet entered into any such arrangements for these services.

 

We do not currently have any commercial products and there is no assurance that we will successfully be able to design, develop, manufacture, or sell any commercial products in the future. Our product development programs involve ongoing R&D and product development efforts, and the commitment of significant resources to support the extensive invention, design, engineering, testing, prototyping, and intellectual property initiatives carried-out by our contract engineers, scientists, and consultants.

 

We cannot accurately predict the amount of funding or the time required to successfully commercialize or fabricate SolarWindow™ products. The actual cost and time required to commercialize our SolarWindow™ technology may vary significantly depending on, among other things, the results of our product development efforts; the cost of developing, acquiring, or licensing various enabling technologies; changes in the focus and direction of our business or product development plans; competitive and technological advances; the cost of patent filing, prosecuting, defending and enforcing claims; demonstrating compliance with regulations and standards; and manufacturing, marketing and other costs that may be associated with product fabrication. Because of this uncertainty, even if financing is available to us, we may secure insufficient funding to effectuate our business and/or product development plans.

 

Research and Related Agreements

 

We are a party to certain agreements related to the development of our SolarWindow™ technology.

 

Process Integration and Production Agreement with TriView Glass Industries

Selling, General and Administrative

 

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) costs include all expenditures incurred other than research and development related costs, including costs related to personnel, professional fees, travel and entertainment, public company costs, insurance and other office related costs. During the three months ended November 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended November 30, 2017, SG&A costs decreased due primarily to a $77,000 reduction in investor communications related fees, $36,000 reduction in personnel costs offset by $50,000 increase in professional fees and $15,000 increase in other SG&A costs.

 

Research and Product Development

 

Research and Product Development (“R&PD”) costs represent costs incurred to develop our SolarWindow™ technology and are incurred pursuant to our research agreements and agreements with other third-party providers and certain internal R&PD cost allocations. Payments under these agreements include salaries and benefits for R&PD personnel, allocated overhead, contract services and other costs. R&PD costs are expensed when incurred, except for non-refundable advance payments for future research and development activities which are capitalized and recognized as expense as the related services are performed. During the three months ended November 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended November 30, 2017, R&PD costs decreased primarily as a result of a decrease in consulting, personnel and CRADA costs.

 

Stock Compensation

 

The Company grants stock options to its Directors, employees and consultants and issues stock to its Directors. Stock compensation represents the expense associated with the amortization of our stock options and issuance of common stock. Expense associated with equity-based transactions is calculated and expensed in our financial statements as required pursuant to various accounting rules and is non-cash in nature. Stock compensation expense decreased during the three months ended November 30, 2018 compared to the three months ended November 30, 2017 due to no stock or option grants occurring in 2018 compared to the 2017 grant of 255,000 options with vesting related expense of $493,057 and issuance of 210,000 shares of common stock to our directors valued at $1,022,700. The 2018 stock compensation expense includes $355,000 related to the January 1, 2018 option grant issued to our CEO on January 1, 2018.

“Interest expense” relates to the stated interest of our convertible promissory notes and bridge note. “Accretion of debt discount” represents the accretion of the discount applied to our notes as a result of the issuance and modification of detachable warrants and the beneficial conversion feature contained in our notes. Pursuant to the third amendment to both outstanding promissory notes, the maturity date was extended to December 31, 2019 and the interest rate increased from 7% to 10.5% resulting in an increase to the amount of interest expense recognized during the three months ended November 30, 2018. The increase in accretion is due to the recognition of all remaining debt discount related to the 2013 Note as a result of its conversion on November 26, 2018. See “NOTE 3 – Debt” and “NOTE 4 – Private Placements” to our Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

See Note 2 to our Consolidated Financial Statements for more information regarding recent accounting pronouncements and their impact to our consolidated results of operations and financial position.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”) requires the use of estimates and assumptions that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenue and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental disclosures including information about contingencies, risk and financial condition.

 

 
22
 
Table of Contents

 

Critical accounting estimates are defined as those that are reflective of significant judgments and uncertainties and potentially yield materially different results under different assumptions or conditions. Given current facts and circumstances, we believe that our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, adhere to GAAP and are consistently applied. Our selection and disclosure of our critical accounting policies and estimates has been reviewed by our Board. Following is a review of the more significant assumptions and estimates and the accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements. For all of these estimates, we caution that future events rarely develop exactly as forecast, and the best estimates routinely require adjustment. See Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies to the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements which discusses the significant accounting policies that we have adopted.

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

We account for stock based compensation arrangements through the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all stock based payment awards to employees and directors based on estimated fair values. We use the Black-Scholes option valuation model to estimate the fair value of our stock options and warrants at the date of grant. The Black-Scholes option valuation model requires the input of subjective assumptions to calculate the value of options and warrants. We use historical company data among other information to estimate the expected price volatility and the expected forfeiture rate and not comparable company information, due to the lack of comparable publicly traded companies that exist in our industry.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Company maintains “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act, that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any control and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objective.

 

As required by SEC Rule 13a-15(b), the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of November 30, 2018. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not sufficiently effective as of November 30, 2018 because of the following material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting:

 

 

· Ineffective control environment due to an insufficient number of independent board members, insufficient oversight of work performed, and the lack of compensating controls over financial reporting due to limited personnel;

 

 

 

 

· Ineffective design, implementation, and documentation of internal controls impacting financial statement accounts and general controls over technology pertaining to user access and segregation of duties, banking and disbursements, and financial accounting system applications; and

 

 

 

 

· Ineffective monitoring controls related to the financial close and reporting process, including management’s risk assessment process and its identification, evaluation, and timely remediation of control deficiencies

 

The Company’s plan is to realign certain roles to provide better segregation of duties and implement stronger user access controls, perform more extensive reviews of critical estimates, journal entries and complex calculations. The Company has engaged the services of independent consultants to assist in addressing and reviewing its internal controls, including information technology general controls.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

On October 22, 2018, the Company hired a Chief Financial Officer. There have been no other changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, during the fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2018, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
