NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Nature of the Business
 
The Company was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 10, 1999. The Company is based in Rochester, New York and its common stock, par value $0.001 per share, is traded on the over-the-counter market and quoted on the OTCQB.
 
The Company is a technology pioneer in the anti-counterfeiting industry. This broad market encompasses counterfeiting of physical and material goods and products, as well as counterfeiting of identity in digital transactions. The Company is able to deliver security solutions for identification and authentication of people, products and packaging in a variety of applications in the security field for physical transactions and owns digital patents which are in the same field. The products can be used to manage and issue secure credentials, including national IDs, passports, driver licenses and access control credentials, as well as comprehensive authentication security software to secure physical and logical access to facilities, computer networks, internet sites and mobile applications.

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements (the “Interim Statements”) have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations for reporting on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and disclosures required by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements are not included herein. The Interim Statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s latest Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 16, 2018.  The accompanying interim financial statements are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The interim results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018 or for any future interim periods.
    
The Company’s activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including the need to secure additional funding to further develop the Company’s patents.
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying financial statements are presented in accordance with GAAP.

Revenue Recognition

The Company accounts for revenues according to ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” which establishes principles for reporting information about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity's contracts to provide goods or services to customers.
 
 
The Company applies the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as it fulfills its obligations under each of its agreements:
 
·
identify the contract with a customer;
·
identify the performance obligations in the contract;
·
determine the transaction price;
·
allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and
·
recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company’s revenues were primarily made up of canisters sold that will allow our customer to print labels with the Company’s technology.
 
Basic and Diluted Net Income per Share of Common Stock

The Company follows FASB ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share,” when reporting Earnings Per Share resulting in the presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share.  Because the Company reported a net loss for each of the periods presented, common stock equivalents, including preferred stock, stock options and warrants were anti-dilutive; therefore, the amounts reported for basic and diluted loss per share were the same.
 
For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, there were shares potentially issuable, that could dilute basic earnings per share in the future that were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive to the Company’s losses during the years presented.
 
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 there were approximately 42,703,000 anti-dilutive shares consisting of 18,014,000 relating to options, 11,375,000 relating to warrants and 13,314,000 relating to preferred share agreements.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 there were approximately 60,570,000 anti-dilutive shares consisting of 18,733,000 relating to options, 27,128,000 relating to warrants, and 14,709,000 relating to preferred share agreements.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
 
As of June 30, 2018, there are no recently issued accounting standards not yet adopted which would have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements through 2018.
 
NOTE 2 – PATENTS AND TRADEMARKS
     
The current granted patent portfolio consists of 12 granted U.S. patents and two pending patents applications. The Company has recently received notice that one of its core printing technology patents has been granted in the European Union and will issue in approximately eight designated countries. Management has also conducted a review of its intellectual patent portfolio and determined that several of the applications, even if issued, were not central to the pursuit of the Company’s anti-counterfeiting and diversion business and thus not cost effective and would not continue to be pursued. Accordingly, costs associated with the registration and legal defense of these patents have been capitalized and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated lives of the patents which were determined to be 17 to 19 years.   During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company capitalized $825 and $0 of patent costs and trademarks. Amortization expense for patents and trademarks was $5,860 and $8,543 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and 10,894 and 6,331 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.
 
 
NOTE 3 – NOTES PAYABLE
 
Notes payable consist of the following as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017:
 
 
 
June 30,
   
December 31,

At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 accrued interest on notes payable was $35,667 and $33,667.
 
On October 28, 2009 the Company issued an unsecured note payable for $50,000. The note and accrued interest at 8% per annum were due in full in October 2011.  The holder has never demanded payment.

NOTE 6– STOCK OPTIONS, RESTRICTED STOCK AND WARRANTS
 
During 2013, the Company adopted a new incentive compensation plan (the “2013 Plan”). Under the 2013 Plan, the Company is authorized to grant awards of stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units and other stock-based awards of up to an aggregate of 20,000,000 shares of common stock.  The 2013 Plan is intended to permit stock options granted to employees under the 2013 Plan to qualify as Incentive Stock Options.  All options granted under the 2013 Plan, which are not intended to qualify as Incentive Stock Options are deemed to be Non-Statutory Stock Options.  
 
 
On November 14, 2017, the Executive Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Executive Committee”) adopted the 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) which covers the potential issuance of 13 million shares of common stock. The Plan provides that directors, officers, employees, and consultants of the Company will be eligible to receive equity incentives under the Plan at the discretion of the Board or the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee may adopt rules and regulations to carry out the terms of the Plan. The Plan terminates on November 14, 2027 unless sooner terminated.
 
The Plan is administered by a committee of the Board (“Compensation Committee”) which determines the persons to whom awards will be granted, the number of awards to be granted and the specific terms of each grant, including the vesting thereof, subject to the provisions of the Plan.

In connection with Incentive Stock Options, the exercise price of each option may not be less than 100% of the fair market value of the common stock on the date of the grant (or 110% of the fair market value in the case of a grantee holding more than 10% of the outstanding stock of the Company). The aggregate fair market value (determined at the time of the grant) of stock for which an employee may exercise
 
 
Incentive Stock Options under all plans of the Company shall not exceed $1,000,000 per calendar year. If any employee shall have the right to exercise any options in excess of $100,000 during any calendar year, the options in excess of $100,000 shall be deemed to be Non-Statutory Stock Options, including prices, duration, transferability and limitations on exercise.
 
The Company issued Non-Statutory Stock Options pursuant to contractual agreements with non-employees. Options granted under the agreements are expensed when the related service or product is provided.
 
Determining the appropriate fair value of stock-based awards requires the input of subjective assumptions. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value its stock option awards. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value represent management’s best estimates and involve inherent uncertainties and judgments.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 the Company expensed $20,219 and $226,188 with respect to options.  For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company expensed $284,373 and $335,970 with respect to the options.

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

VerifyMe is a technology pioneer in the anti-counterfeiting industry. This broad market encompasses counterfeiting of physical and material goods and products, as well as counterfeiting of identity in digital transactions. We can deliver security solutions for identification and authentication of people, products and packaging in a variety of applications in the security field for physical transactions and hold patents with the application to digital transactions. Our products can be used to manage and issue secure credentials, including national identifications, passports, driver licenses and access control credentials, as well as comprehensive authentication security software to secure physical and logical access to facilities, computer networks, internet sites and mobile applications.

The challenges associated with digital access control and identity theft are problems that are highly relevant in the world today. Consumers, citizens, employees, governments and employers demand comprehensive solutions that are reliable but not intrusive. The current widespread use of passwords or PINs for authentication has been proven insecure and inadequate. Individuals increasingly expect anywhere-anytime experiences—whether they are making purchases, crossing borders, accessing services or logging into online accounts or corporate resources. They expect those experiences to ensure the protection of their privacy and to provide uncompromising confidentiality.

We believe that the digital technologies we own will enable businesses and consumers to reconstruct their overall approaches to security—from identity and authentication to the management of legacy passwords and PINs. We estimate that we need to spend $150,000 to develop our digital patents. Our goal is to do that in the current year. Our goal is to enable our customers to take advantage of the full capabilities of smart mobile devices and provide solutions that are both simple to use and deliver the highest level of security. These solutions can be applied to corporate networks, financial services, e-gov services, digital wallets, mobile payments, entertainment, subscription services, and social media.
 
Brand owners, government agencies, professional associations, and others all share in the challenge of responding to counterfeit goods and product protection issues. Counterfeit goods span across multiple industries including currency, passports, ID cards, pharmaceuticals, apparel, cosmetics, accessories, music, software, food, wine, tobacco, automobile and airplane parts, consumer goods, toys and electronics. Described by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation as the crime of the twenty-first century, product counterfeiting accounts for an estimated 2.5% of global trade or $461 billion and creates global health, safety and economic consequences for individuals, corporations, government and society.

We believe that the physical technologies we own will enable businesses and consumers to reconstruct their overall approaches to security—from counterfeit identification to employee or customer monitoring. Potential applications of our technologies are available in different types of products and industries—e.g., gaming, apparel, luxury goods, tobacco, fragrances and cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, event and transportation tickets, driver’s licenses, insurance cards, passports, computer software, and credit cards. We generate sales through licenses of our technology or through direct sales of our technology.

Our physical technologies involve the utilization of invisible and color changing inks, which are compatible with today’s printing presses. The inks may be used with certain printing systems such as offset, flexographic, silkscreen, gravure, and laser. Based upon our experience, we believe that the ink technologies may be incorporated into existing manufacturing processes. We believe that some of our patents may have non-security applications, and we are attempting to commercialize these opportunities.

 Our digital technologies involve the utilization of multiple authentication mechanisms, some of which we own and some of which we license.  These mechanisms include biometric factors, knowledge factors, possession factors and location factors.   Biometric factors include facial recognition with liveness detection, finger print and voice recognition.  Knowledge factors include a personal gesture swipe and a safe and panic color choice.  Possession factor includes devices that the user has in their possession such as a smartphone, smart watch, and other wearable computing devices.  The location factor geo-locates the user during a secure login.  We surround these authentication mechanisms with proprietary systems that improve the usability and the security of the solutions. Our solutions allow the assessment and quantification of risk using a sophisticated heuristic scoring mechanism.  We have specialized systems that perform ‘liveness’ detection to insure the subject of authentication is in fact a live human being. We have systems that introduce learning capabilities into our solutions to improve the ease of use and flexibility.
 
We believe that our physical technologies will play a role in the supply chain management process.  Our invisible ink can be used as a unique identifier in a digital serialization application.
 
 
Serialization or Unique identification helps brand owners identify who manufactured the product, which wholesaler has sold the product  to retailers or hospitals and other pertinent information concerning the products supply chain.  The implementation of serialization and track and trace provides the ability to track and trace the lifecycle of products in the system end-to-end.  Our invisible ink is applied during the printing process of product labels and packaging and can be used as a unique invisible serialization identifying number or code on labels and packaging.   The invisibleness of our ink acts as an additional layer of security since the ink needs to be revealed with special equipment.

A track and trace system improves security by:

1.
Knowing the life cycle of a product or prescription drug, from where it is manufactured, who is repackaging it, who is distributing, when it is prescribed and when it is sold
2.
Meeting accurate regulatory and compliance requirement questions such as “What, Where, When and Who”
3.
Locating prescription drug batches and precisely where they are distributed
4.
Enabling the option to recall a particular batch or entire batches which are reported as having a product/batch failure or having not met standards
5.
Identify if the prescribed drug is counterfeit, stolen, contaminated etc.
6.
Know about the multi-container packaging item level details

Track and trace works in the following ways:

1.
Generate and apply unique serialization number for manufactured drugs.
2.
Capture unique serialization number and store in centralized database (distributed or non-distributed).
3.
Update serialization data in EPCIS centralized database.
4.
Wholesalers, Repackagers and Pharmacies can have the ability to validate the serialization when they perform transactions.
 
Each time a transaction for serialized drugs is carried out, the transaction drug history is updated in the e-pedigree system.
 
 
Results of Operations

Comparison of the Three Months Ended June 30, 2018 and 2017

The following discussion analyzes our results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. The following information should be considered together with our financial statements for such period and the accompanying notes thereto.

Revenue

We generated revenue of $6,799 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This compares to no revenue in 2017.We were engaged for an order for the printing of 10 million labels with VerifyMe’s authentication serialization technology for a large global brand owner. The $6,799 primarily represents canisters that were sold to allow our customer to print labels with our technology. It is expected that the technology usage revenue for the 10 million label order will be booked during the third and fourth quarters of 2018.  The revenue is recognized as the labels are printed.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses increased by $43,376 to $525,760 for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $482,384 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The increase resulted primarily to an increase in non-cash charges related to restricted stock awards.

General and administrative expenses increased by $392,503 to $1,021,334 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from $628,831 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increase resulted primarily to an increase in non-cash charges related to restricted stock awards and options to consultants and our directors for $200,000.  Additionally, our Chief Executive Officer received wages in the second half of 2017, resulting in an increase of $90,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The remaining increases related primarily to consulting expenses for our Chief Operating Officer offset by a decrease in accounting fees.

Legal and Accounting

Legal and accounting fees increased by $206,268 to $297,474 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from $91,206 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  In the quarter ended March 31, 2017 we had released our then attorneys and hired our current attorneys in the second quarter of 2017.

Payroll Expenses

Payroll expenses were $191,854 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, an increase of $148,792 from $43,062 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The increase relates to compensation for our Chief Executive Officer.
  
Research and Development

Research and development expenses were $28,429 and $17,310 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. 

Interest Expense, net

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company incurred interest income, net of $283 as compared to interest expense, net of $212,316 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The decrease in interest expense is related to the settlement of notes payable in the second quarter of 2017.

Change in Fair Value of Warrants

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company did not have any unrealized gain or loss for the change in Fair Value of Warrants as compared to a gain of $101,744 for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  As of June 30, 2017, warrants with derivative liabilities were exchanged for common stock. 

Change in Fair Value of Embedded Derivative Liability

During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company did not have any unrealized gain or loss for the change in the fair value of the embedded derivative liability as compared to a gain of $79,420 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. 

Settlement agreement with shareholders

In the first half of 2018 we made a strategic decision to end a future revenue sharing program resulting in settlement expenses of $779,000.

Net Loss

Our net loss increased to $1,918,828 from $957,315 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
 
 
Non-GAAP – Financial Measures

The following discussion and analysis includes both financial measures in accordance with GAAP, as well as non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as supplemental to, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income, and cash flow from operating activities, liquidity or any other financial measures. They may not be indicative of the historical operating results of AGI nor are they intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Our management uses and relies on EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that both management and shareholders benefit from referring to the following non-GAAP financial measures in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparison. Our management recognizes that the non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations because of the described excluded items.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (or loss) from operations before the items in the table below including non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, investors and analysts to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of items of a non-operational nature that affect comparability.

We have included a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe that providing the non-GAAP financial measures, together with the reconciliation to GAAP, helps investors make comparisons between us  and other companies. In making any comparisons to other companies, investors need to be aware that companies use different non-GAAP measures to evaluate their financial performance. Investors should pay close attention to the specific definition being used and to the reconciliation between such measure and the corresponding GAAP measure provided by each company under applicable SEC rules.

The following table presents a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) allocable to common shareholders, a GAAP financial measure:

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Our operations used $1,623,303 of cash during the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to $281,449 during the comparable period in 2017 due to a $500,000 payment made related to the Settlement Agreement and due to changes in operations occurring in the first half of 2017.
 
In March 2018, we made a financial strategic decision to end a future revenue sharing program, so that we could benefit entirely from future revenues.  To do this, we paid out cash in relation to the Settlement Agreement mentioned in Note 6 to the financial statements, of $500,000.  Management believes that the potential future savings that will be incurred by this transaction significantly outweigh the costs.
 
Cash provided or used in investing activities was not material in either quarter. 
 
Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2018, was $3,247,428 compared to $797,122 during the six months ended June 30, 2017.  During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company sold common stock for gross proceeds of $1,154,211.  Additionally, the Company raised $2,093,217 from the exercise of warrants.
 
As of July 31, 2018, we had $2,371,387 of cash which we expect will meet our liquidity and working capital needs for more than the next 12 months. Ultimately, we must not only generate revenue from our technologies but we must general positive cash flow from operations. If we do not, we will be required to raise more capital, which will likely be very dilutive or cease operating our current business.
  
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This report includes forward-looking statements including statements regarding our product development and capabilities, and generation of revenue.

The words “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “could,” “target,” “potential,” “is likely,” “will,” “expect” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

The results anticipated by any or all of these forward-looking statements might not occur. Important factors, uncertainties and risks that may cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include our ability to close sales leads, begin meaningful marketing of our products, and begin generating revenue from our products. Further information on our risk factors is contained in our filings with the SEC, including our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

None.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our financial statements are impacted by the accounting policies used and the estimates and assumptions made by management during their preparation. We have identified below the accounting policies that are of particular importance in the presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows and which require the application of significant judgment by management.

Revenue Recognition

We account for revenues according to ASC Topic 606, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” which establishes principles for reporting information about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity's contracts to provide goods or services to customers.
 
 
We apply the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as it fulfills its obligations under each of its agreements:
 
·
identify the contract with a customer;
·
identify the performance obligations in the contract;
·
determine the transaction price;
·
allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and
·
recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.

Stock-based Compensation

We account for stock-based compensation under the provisions of FASB ASC 718, “Compensation—Stock Compensation,” which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all stock-based awards made to employees and directors based on estimated fair values on the grant date. We estimate the fair value of stock-based awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods using the straight-line method.

We account for stock-based compensation awards to non-employees in accordance with FASB ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”. Under FASB ASC 505-50, we determine the fair value of the warrants or stock-based compensation awards granted as either the fair value of the consideration received, or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.

All issuances of stock options or other equity instruments to non-employees as consideration for goods or services received by the Company are accounted for based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued. Any stock options issued to non-employees are recorded as an expense and additional paid in capital in stockholders’ equity over the applicable service periods using variable accounting through the vesting dates based on the fair value of the options at the end of each period.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

Not Applicable.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of three months ended June 30, 2018, the end of the fiscal quarter covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on that evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of June 30, 2018, our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective to ensure that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is: (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

(b) Changes in Internal Controls. There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
