NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

1.Description of business and summary of significant accounting policies

 

Description of business –Brownie’s Marine Group, Inc., (hereinafter referred to as the “Company”, “We”, or “BWMG”) designs, tests, manufactures and distributes recreational hookah diving, yacht based scuba air compressor and nitrox generation systems, and scuba and water safety products through its wholly owned subsidiary Trebor Industries, Inc. The Company sells its products both on a wholesale and retail basis, and does so from its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Company does business as (dba) Brownie’s Third Lung, the dba name of Trebor Industries, Inc. The Company’s common stock is quoted on the OTCBB under the symbol “BWMG”.

 

Basis of Presentation – The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In the opinion of management all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary to give a fair presentation of operating results for the periods presented have been included. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. The information included in this Form 10Q should be read in the conjunction with information included in the 2011 annual report filed on Form 10-K.

 

Definition of fiscal year – The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31.

 

Use of estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Reclassifications – Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2011 financial statement amounts to conform to the 2012 financial statement presentation.

 

Cash and equivalents – Only highly liquid investments with original maturities of 90 days or less are classified as cash and equivalents. These investments are stated at cost, which approximates market value.

 

Going Concern –The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business for the twelve-month period following the date of these financial statements. We have incurred losses since 2009, and expect to have losses in 2012. We have had a working capital deficit since 2009. Although cured effective the fourth quarter 2010, the Company defaulted on its first mortgage in the third quarter of 2010, which resulted in an automatic default on its second mortgage, and was restructured with a forbearance agreement with a maturity date of May 22, 2012. The Company was notified of default under the Forbearance Agreement on or around April 27, 2012, and the real estate was foreclosed on and sold on August 16, 2012. See Note 10. NOTES PAYABLE for further discussion related to the mortgage and Forbearance Agreement.

 

In addition, the Company is behind on payments due for payroll taxes and withholding, matured convertible debentures, related party notes payable, accrued liabilities and interest –related parties, and certain vendor payables. While the Company has received no formal notices of default related to these it has not been able to resolve, it is working out these matters on a case by case basis. However, there can be no assurance that cooperation the Company has received thus far will continue. Payment delinquencies are further addressed in Note 6. RELATED PARTIES TRANSACTIONS, Note 8. ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND ACCRUED LIABILITIES, Note 9. OTHER LIABILITIES, Note 10. NOTES PAYABLE, and Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES.

1.Description of business and summary of significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Going Concern (continued) – During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company formed a joint venture with one dive entity, and in the first quarter of 2012, purchased the assets of another, with assumption of their retail location lease. The Company accomplished both transactions predominantly through issuance of restricted common stock in BWMG. The Company believes these transactions will help generate enough sales to supply sufficient working capital in the future. See Note 17. JOINT VENTURE EQUITY TRANSACTION and Note 7. ASSET PURCHASE for further discussion of these transactions. However, the Company does not expect that existing cash flow will be sufficient to fund presently anticipated operations beyond the forth quarter of 2012. This raises substantial doubt about BWMG’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will need to raise additional funds and is currently exploring alternative sources of financing. We have issued a number of convertible debentures as an interim measure to finance our working capital needs as discussed in Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES and may continue to raise additional capital through sale of restricted common stock or other securities. We are paying for many legal and consulting services with restricted stock to maximize working capital. We have implemented some cost saving measures and will continue to explore more to reduce operating expenses.

 

If we fail to raise additional funds when needed, or do not have sufficient cash flows from sales, we may be required to scale back or cease operations, liquidate our assets and possibly seek bankruptcy protection. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Inventory – Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is principally determined by using the average cost method that approximates the First-In, First-Out (FIFO) method of accounting for inventory. Inventory consists of raw materials as well as finished goods held for sale. The Company’s management monitors the inventory for excess and obsolete items and makes necessary valuation adjustments when required.

 

Property, Plant, and Equipment – Property, Plant and Equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is provided principally on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which are primarily 3 to 5 years. The cost of repairs and maintenance is charged to expense as incurred. Expenditures for property betterments and renewals are capitalized. Upon sale or other disposition of a depreciable asset, cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in other income (expense).

 

The Company periodically evaluates whether events and circumstances have occurred that may warrant revision of the estimated useful lives of fixed assets or whether the remaining balance of fixed assets should be evaluated for possible impairment. The Company uses an estimate of the related undiscounted cash flows over the remaining life of the fixed assets in measuring their recoverability.

 

Revenue recognition – Revenues from product sales are recognized when the Company’s products are shipped or when service is rendered. Revenues from fixed-price contracts are recognized on the percentage-of-completion method, measured by the percentage of cost incurred to date to estimated total cost of each contract. This method is used because management considers the percentage of cost incurred to date to estimated total cost to be the best available measure of progress on the contracts.

 

Contract costs include all direct material and labor costs and those indirect costs related to contract performance, such as indirect labor, supplies, tools, repairs, and depreciation costs. General and administrative costs are charged to expense as incurred. Provisions for estimated losses on uncompleted contracts are made in the period in which such losses are determined. Change in job performance, job conditions, and estimated profitability may result in revisions to costs and income and are recognized in the period in which the revisions are determined.

 

Revenue and costs incurred for time and material projects are recognized as the work is performed.

 

Product development costs – Product development expenditures are charged to expenses as incurred.

1.Description of business and summary of significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Advertising and marketing costs – The Company expenses the costs of producing advertisements and marketing material at the time production occurs, and expenses the costs of communicating advertisements and participating in trade shows in the period in which occur. Advertising and trade show expense incurred for the three months ended September 30, 2012, and 2011, was $2,636 and $28,509, respectively. Advertising and trade show expense incurred for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, and 2011, was $15,799 and $42,981, respectively.

 

Customer deposits and returns policy – The Company takes a minimum 50% deposit against custom and large tankfill systems prior to ordering and/or building the systems. The remaining balance due is payable upon delivery, shipment, or installation of the system. There is no provision for cancellation of custom orders once the deposit is accepted, nor return of the custom ordered product. Additionally, returns of all other merchandise are subject to a 15% restocking fee as stated on each sales invoice.

 

Income taxes – The Company accounts for its income taxes under the assets and liabilities method, which requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

The Company records net deferred tax assets to the extent the Company believes these assets will more likely than not be realized. In making such determination, the Company considers all available positive and negative evidence, including future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences, projected future taxable income, tax planning strategies and recent financial operations. A valuation allowance is established against deferred tax assets that do not meet the criteria for recognition. In the event the Company were to determine that it would be able to realize deferred income tax assets in the future in excess of their net recorded amount, they would make an adjustment to the valuation allowance which would reduce the provision for income taxes.

 

The Company follows the accounting guidance which provides that a tax benefit from an uncertain tax position may be recognized when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including resolutions of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits. Income tax positions must meet a more-likely-than-not recognition threshold at the effective date to be recognized initially and in subsequent periods. Also included is guidance on measurement, derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.

 

Comprehensive income – The Company has no components of other comprehensive income. Accordingly, net income equals comprehensive income for all periods.

 

Stock-based compensation – The Company accounts for all compensation related to stock, options or warrants using a fair value based method whereby compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the service period, which is usually the vesting period. The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to calculate the fair value of options and warrants issued to both employees and non-employees. Stock issued for compensation is valued on the effective date of the agreement in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, which includes determination of the fair value of the share-based transaction. The fair value has been determined either through use of the quoted stock price unless the trading activity is nominal, which may indicate it does not represent the fair value. Under these circumstances, the Company determines fair value through an analysis of its fair value of net assets and comparable publicly traded companies that have higher trading volumes with similar results of operations and industries.

1.Description of business and summary of significant ACCOUNTING policies (continued)

 

Stock-based compensation (continued) – For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company amortized prepaid equity based compensation for personal guarantees of related party on Company’s bank debt, and additional compensation expense to the Chief Executive Officer payable in stock when vested. See Note 6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS for further discussion. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, and 2011, the company granted stock for consulting services. See Note 12. STOCK ISSUED FOR CONSULTING, LEGAL, AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL SERVICES. In addition, on March 6, 2012, the Company authorized year end 2011 equity based bonuses for some employees, board of directors, and consultants, as well as payment of amounts due the non-employee member of the Board of Directors for service on the Board from April 1 to December 31, 2012. See Note 20. EQUITY BASED YEAR END BONUSES AND CONVERSION OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ LIABILITY for further information. Similarly, on March 8, 2012, the Company issued 10,000,000 shares of stock to an employee in satisfaction of $45,000 of accrued payroll from 2011. In addition, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recognized $11,333 and $5,333, respectively, for sales, general and administrative expense for exclusivity pursuant to strategic alliance agreement payable in stock when vested. See Note 21. STRATEGIC ALLIANCE AGREEMENT for further discussion.

 

Beneficial conversion features on convertible debentures – The fair value of the stock upon which to base the beneficial conversion feature (BCF) computation has been determined either through use of the quoted stock price unless the trading activity is nominal, which may indicate it does not represent the fair value. Under these circumstances, the Company determines fair value through an analysis of its fair value of net assets and comparable publicly traded companies that have higher trading volumes with similar results of operations and industries.  See Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES for further discussion.

 

Fair value of financial instruments – The carrying amounts and estimated fair values of the Company’s financial instruments approximate their fair value due to the short-term nature.

 

Earnings per common share – Basic earnings per share excludes any dilutive effects of options, warrants and convertible securities. Basic earnings per share is computed using the weighted-average number of outstanding common shares during the applicable period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common and common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period. Common stock equivalent shares are excluded from the computation if their effect is antidilutive. All common stock equivalent shares were excluded in the computation for the three months ended September 30, 2012, and 2011, since their effect was antidilutive.

 

New accounting pronouncements – In July 2012, the Financial Accounting and Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) ASU 2012-02, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment. ASU 2012-02 addresses valuation of indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill, and allows an entity the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that impairment has occurred. If an entity determines it is not likely that impairment has occurred no further action is necessary. ASU 2012-02 is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The Company elected early adoption of ASU 2012-02 during the second quarter of 2012 without impact to financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Royalties expense – related parties – The Company has Non-Exclusive License Agreements with 940 Associates, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “940A”), an entity owned by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, to license product patents it owns. Under the terms of the license agreements effective January 1, 2005, the Company pays 940A $2.00 per licensed product sold, rates increasing 5% annually. Also with 940A, the Company has an Exclusive License Agreement to license the trademark “Brownies Third Lung”, “Tankfill”, “Brownies Public Safety” and various other related trademarks as listed in the agreement. Based on this license agreement, the Company pays 940A 2.5% of gross revenues per quarter. Total royalty expense for the above agreements for three months ended September 30, 2012, and 2011, is disclosed on the face of the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations. As of September 30, 2012, the Company was approximately twenty-six months in arrears on royalty payments due. No default notice has been received and the Company plans to make payments as able.

 

Non-employee Board of Directors – Non-employee Board of Director (BOD) compensation is $2,500 per month. Non-Employee BOD fees for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $7,500 and $30,000, respectively. One of the two non-employee Board of Directors (“BOD”), Wesley Armstrong, of the three person BOD, which included the Chief Executive Officer, resigned his position on April 18, 2012. As of September 30, 2012, none of the $30,000 accrued BOD fees had been paid. Because the remaining non-employee BOD, Mikkel Pitzner, now accounts for 50% of the BOD, the Company reclassified him to related party as of April 2012. See Other liabilities and accrued interest - related parties below for inclusion of the $22,500 payable to him as of September 30, 2102. Prior to April 2012, the two non-employee BOD were not classified as related parties. The $7,500 payable to the non-employee director that resigned is included in other liabilities at September 30, 2012. On June 20, 2012, Mr. Pitzner converted a $20,000 short-term loan to 2,666,667 restricted shares payable per BOD consent. Conversion price per share was $.0075, which was the same price granted to another unrelated equity investor.

 

Patent purchase agreements – In the first quarter of 2010, the Carleigh Rae Corporation (herein referred to as “CRC”), an entity that the Company’s Chief Executive Officer has an ownership interest, transferred ownership rights to the Company of patents previously subject to Non-Exclusive License Agreements. Effective September 24, 2010, the Company finalized and executed terms of the purchase from CRC for payment of $25,500 and 371,250 shares of the Company’s common stock. In addition, the principals of CRC are entitled to a percentage of future sales amounting to $8,250 of products the Company is to receive in conjunction with two patent infringement lawsuits settled in the third quarter of 2010. For financial reporting purposes the Company valued the group of patents at $0 which is the lower of CRC’s historical cost as compared to the fair market value of the stock. Accordingly, the Company realized $182,250 loss on the transaction comprised of $148,500 fair market value of the stock on the September, 30, 2010 grant date less the $0 historical cost, plus the $25,500 cash, plus the $8,250 liability. See Other liabilities and accrued interest– related parties below for inclusion of $6,017 remaining on the liability due the Principals of CRC. By acquiring the IP the Company (i) has an opportunity to further develop the IP, (ii) has the ability to incorporate the IP into current and future products, and (iii) has the opportunity to license the IP to third parties.

6.RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS (continued)

 

Equity based compensation for Chief Executive Officer – Pursuant to a Written Consent of the Board of Directors (BOD) of the Company on June 11, 2012, clarifying a meeting held on May 31, 2012, the BOD declared a $83,333 bonus due the Chief Executive Officer payable in 6,944,444 shares of restricted stock. The shares will not vest until January 2, 2013, are subject to continued employment with the Company through then, and will not be released until vested. The grant price per share of $.012 was based on the closing price of the stock on May 31, 2012. For accounting purposes, the Company will recognize $83,333 operating expense ratably over the seven months the share vest. Further, the Chief Executive Officer’s monthly salary was increased by $16,667 per month beginning in June 2012, payable in restricted stock calculated based on a monthly weighted average share factor of .70, or a 30% discount. The shares will not vest until six months after the last day of each month, continued employment is also a requirement for vesting, and shares will not be issued until vested. The Company will record $23,801 operating expense each month related to the salary increase, which is $16,667 with the discount added back to record at full monthly weighted average price per market. Accordingly, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recorded $107,143 and 142,857, respectively, operating expense related to the equity based compensation with corresponding entry to shares payable.

 

7.ASSET PURCHASE

 

On February 3, 2012, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement with Florida Dive Industries, Inc. (“Seller”). On March 5, 2012, the same parties executed an amendment (“Amendment”) to the agreement (collectively, the “Agreement”). Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company acquired certain diving and related inventory, and Seller provided a three year non-compete agreement within a 10-mile wide radius. In addition, the Company assumed a commercial lease obligation for a retail dive store in Boca Raton, Florida beginning in April 1, 2012. The lease is automatically renewable on an annual basis through May 31, 2014, with 90 days written notice assuming the Leasee is in compliance with all terms of the lease. The lease amount is base rental plus an allocated amount of common areas maintenance (‘CAM”). Base rental increases annually by the greater of 5% or the annual consumer price index. The current monthly rental including CAM at the time of assignment is approximately $3,200.

 

As a purchase price, the Company shall pay Seller, on a monthly basis, beginning April 1, 2012, and thereafter until May 13, 2013, in equal payments, the total cash purchase price of $22,500. In addition, the Company shall issue Seller 2,200,000 shares of restricted stock as part of the purchase price as provided for in the Amendment. The fair market value of the Company’s 2,200,000 shares of restricted stock on March 5, 2012, was $59,400, or $.027 per share. Both the restricted stock and the monthly payments due Seller shall be maintained in an escrow account for six months as a purchase price holdback for contingent liabilities not otherwise settled by Seller. If such items including rent and any building or zoning code violations have not been paid by Seller during this period, Buyer will settle said liabilities with the purchase price holdback.

9. OTHER LIABILITIES

 

Other liabilities of $360,126 at September 30, 2012, consists of $307,107 foreclosure liability, $37,000 short-term loans, $22,500 payable for assets purchased pursuant to Asset Purchase Agreement (Note 7. ASSET PURCHASE), $7,500 non-employee BOD fee, and $2,200 on-line training liability. The foreclosure liability is the difference between the court judgment amount, and amount the Company’s foreclosed property was purchased for by lender. The $37,000 short-term loans is comprised of three loans due on demand from unrelated parties.

 

Other liabilities of $13,320 at December 31, 2011, consists of $10,000 short-term loan, and $3,320 on-line training liability. The $10,000 short-term loan, unsecured loan is from one of the Board of Directors and is without stated terms.

 

Effective July 1, 2005, the Company began including on-line training certificates with all hookah units sold. The training certificates entitle the holder to an on-line interactive course at no additional charge to the holder. The number of on-line training certificates issued per unit is the same as the number of divers the unit as sold is designed to accommodate (i.e., a three diver unit configuration comes with three on-line training certificates). The certificates have an eighteen-month redemption life after which time they expire. The eighteen-month life of the certificates begins at the time the customer purchases the unit. The Company owes the on-line training vendor the agreed upon negotiated rate for all on-line certificates redeemed payable at the time of redemption. For certificates that expire without redemption, no amount is due the on-line training vendor.

 

The Company estimates the on-line training liability based on the historical redemption rate of approximately 10%. The Company continues to monitor and maintain a reserve for certificate redemption that approximates the historical redemption rate.

 

10.NOTES PAYABLE

 

Notes payable consists of the following as of September 30, 2012:

 

Promissory note payable, unsecured, bearing interest at 5% simple interest per annum, due in weekly principal and interest payments of $250,  maturing on March 10, 2015.  $30,307

On March 18, 2011, the Chief Executive Officer transferred all financial interest in GKR. Accordingly, all transactions of the Company with GKR subsequent to March 18, 2011, are not classified with those of related parties, and the note payable due them was converted to a convertible debenture as of September 8, 2011. Accordingly the balance due under that obligation is classified with the convertible debenture balance as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. See Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES for further discussion.

 

On February 18, 2011, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Trebor Industries, Inc., entered into a Forbearance Agreement with Branch Banking and Trust Company (“BBT”) for the promissory note in the principal amount of $1,000,000 in favor of BBT (the “Term Loan”) and the promissory note in the principal amount of $199,991 in favor of BBT (the “Second Note”). The Term Loan and Second Note are collectively referred to as the “Secured Notes”.  The Secured Notes are secured by the Company's Fort Lauderdale facilities and personally guaranteed by the Company’s chief executive officer. As previously disclosed, the Company failed to bring the Secured Notes current and in January 2011 BBT accelerated the full principal and accrued interest due under the Secured Notes, as well as initiated collection and legal action.  The Forbearance Agreement effectively extended the maturity date of the Secured Notes to May 22, 2012.  The Secured Notes were consolidated under a Consolidated and Restated Promissory Note in the principal amount of $1,053,993, effective November 22, 2010, (the “Consolidated Note”).  The maturity date of the Consolidated Note was May 22, 2012.  The interest rate on the Consolidated Note was 7.5% per annum. Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement the Company paid $33,000 to BBT at closing.  In addition to the monthly interest only payments required under the Consolidated Note, Trebor was required to pay BBT $6,028 by February 28, 2011, and monthly payments of approximately $3,555 on March 10, 2011, April 10, 2011, and May 10, 2011, to satisfy disbursements, costs and expenses associated with the Forbearance Agreement.

 

On or about April 27, 2012, the Company received a default notice from BBT under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate. BBT subsequently received judgment of foreclosure, as the 17th Judicial Circuit of the Circuit Court of Broward County awarded BBT a final judgment in the amount of $1,123,269.

10.NOTES PAYABLE (continued)

 

On August 16, 2012 the Company’s real estate was sold through a court ordered auction for approximately $824,000, an amount approximately $300,000 less than the final judgment amount. At the time of the sale, carrying value of the building, building improvements, and land was $1,641,075, mortgage balance was $1,053,997, accrued interest was $15,609, and accrued real estate taxes was $45,006. After reversing all amounts associated with the foreclosed property and recording $300,569 adjustment for difference between the sale and final judgment amount the Company recorded a $307,108 loss on foreclosure. This adjustment and loss are an estimate and are pending final resolution with the mortgage lender who both foreclosed and purchased the property. Until resolution, the Company will maintain a liability for the shortfall, recorded in other liabilities on the balance sheet. The Company continues to occupy the property, has not received notice to vacant, and is working out final terms with the bank on a lease. Accordingly, the note payable on the mortgage was written off during the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 along with the real estate and accumulated depreciation, while the shortfall liability was recorded and will remain until resolution as noted above.

 

In February 2011, the Company converted a vendor payable into an unsecured promissory note as reflected above and below in note payable balances as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. Principal and interest payments of $2,000 per month were to begin on February 28, 2011, and continue through August 31, 2012, maturity. Since the Company was in arrears on payments, on June 1, 2012, the Company restructured the Note with the vendor. Effective June 5, 2012, the Company began making payments under the restructured term as reflected in the terms above stated with the balance at September 30, 2012.

 

Notes payable consists of the following as of December 31, 2011:

 

Promissory note payable secured by a first mortgage on the real property of the Company having a carrying value of $1,093,562 at December 31, 2011, bearing interest at 7.5% per annum, due in monthly interest only payments beginning on February 22, 2011, maturing on May 22, 2012, with balloon payment of principal and any accrued and unpaid interest.  $1,053,993

11.CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES

 

Potential convertible debenture default - On August 16, 2012 the Company’s real estate was sold through a court ordered auction for approximately $824,000, an amount approximately $300,000 less than the final judgment amount. Until the entire final judgment amount is satisfied, there can be no assurance that BBT will not take possession of certain of the Company’s assets to satisfy the judgment. Further, because this may be considered a default under the terms and conditions of the Company’s convertible debentures, there can be no assurance that the lenders may not accelerate as due immediately the full outstanding principal, interest and related default penalties. As of September 30, 2012, no default notices had been received from any of the holders of the convertible debentures.

(1)The Company converted an accounts payable for legal services to a convertible debenture. At the option of the lender, the principal amount of the note plus any accrued interest may be converted in whole or in part into Common Stock at the conversion price per share of $.001 by written notice. The lender will be limited to maximum conversion of 4.99% of the outstanding Common Stock of the Company at any one time. The debenture and the shares referenced within the debenture may be assignable in whole or in part to a third party at any time during the term. The Company valued the beneficial conversion feature (BCF) of the convertible debenture at $20,635, the “ceiling” of its intrinsic value. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture and recognize interest expense through its maturity. On the maturity date of the debenture, the lender sold and assigned the debenture to an unrelated third party for the face value of the debenture. See Note 16. LEGAL regarding dismissal of lawsuit complaint filed by this party against the Company and the original lender. Because the original lender asserted default against this party, the original lender re-assigned the debenture to another party. See Ref. (12) for assignment of the debenture as well as accounting treatment of the assignment.

11.CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES (continued)

 

(2)The Company purchased exclusive rights for license of certain intellectual property from an unrelated party. The parties agreed to a royalty of 2.5% of net revenues generated from the sale, sub-license or use of the technology or a reasonable negotiated rate based on similar invention. The debenture is convertible to common shares of the Company at May 27, 2011, along with accrued interest at the option of the lender. Conversion price per share is 30% discount as determined from the weighted average of the preceding 12 trading days’ closing market price. The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $53,517, its intrinsic value. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture and will recognize interest expense through repayment in full or conversion. Because there is no assurance of success and the invention is still in design and pre-prototype phase, the Company recorded the initial net value of the debenture, $71,483, as research and development expense in during the year ended 2010. Both parties have agreed to confidentiality regarding the invention during the pre-prototype stage. In addition, the Company has agreed to provide the licensor with design services, as well as assist in completing the prototype and initial production at the Company’s prevailing wholesale rate for comparable services.

 

On February 10, 2012, the holder of this debenture entered into an agreement with a third party to sell/assign the $125,000 principal balance, plus accrued interest. The purchase will be in installments with transfer/assignment of the debenture upon payment, referred to as “Closings”. The First Closing was on or about February 15, 2012 for $7,500, with that amount assigned/transferred. The Second Closing, will occur 90 days after the first closing for $11,500 paid/assigned. All subsequent closing’s will be for $11,500 and occur in 30 day increments after the Second Closing. This will continue until the full principal balance of $125,000, plus accrued interest has been purchased/assigned. See Ref. (9) for discussion of new terms on the assigned portions of the debenture.

 

(3)The Company ratified a technology and license agreement with commitment for purchase of inventory related to an agreement signed in 2010, which set pricing for products if minimum quantity purchases were met. Since the Company did not purchase the minimum quantities, but desired to maintain the technology and licensing rights along with the pricing, it agreed to purchase the 2010 balance shortage in 2011, as well as the 2011 minimum quantities. The agreement required the Company issue a convertible debenture for $76,000, and $38,000 of restricted common stock at $.15 per share. The lender at their option may convert all or part of the note plus accrued interest into common stock at a price of thirty percent (30%) discount as determined from the average four (4) deep highest closing bid prices over the preceding five (5) trading days. On June 1, 2011, the Company issued 253,334 shares of restricted common stock at $.15 per share, or $38,000 as required by the agreement. The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $32,571. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture and will recognize interest expense through paid in full or converted. The Company repaid $28,000 of this debenture in 2011.

 

(4)The Company borrowed $42,500 in exchange for a convertible debenture. The interest rate on the debenture will revert to 22% per annum upon nonpayment of any amounts when due. Beginning 180 days after the date of the debenture, the lender may convert the note to common shares at a 42% discount of the “Market Price” of the stock based on the average of the lowest three (3) closing bid prices on the date prior to the notice of conversion. In addition, if the Company grants a lower price for common stock purchase or conversion to anyone else during the term of this agreement, the lender’s conversion price will be adjusted downward to the same. Since as of March 31, 2011, the Company holds another outstanding debenture with a conversion price to common shares at $.001, this conversion price would also apply to this debenture. The lender cannot convert an amount greater than 4.99% of the outstanding common stock at any one time. The Company may prepay the debenture at any time before maturity at graduated amounts depending on the date of prepayment ranging from 130% to 150% of the debenture balance plus accrued and unpaid interest. There is a $2,000 per day penalty for not timely delivering shares upon conversion notice. The Company is also required to maintain a reserve of shares sufficient to cover the lender’s conversion to common stock of the total amount of the debenture. The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $42,500, the “ceiling” of its intrinsic value. Accordingly, the $42,500 debenture is discounted by the amount of the BCF. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture through its maturity and will recognize interest expense until paid in full or converted.

11.CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES (continued)

 

From the same lender, the Company borrowed $37,500 twice in exchange for two other convertible debentures under the same general terms and conditions as the previous debenture.

 

On February 7, 2012, the lender sold/assigned all rights and interest on the first debenture having net book value of $11,000 plus accrued interest of $3,328. On March 9, 2012, the lender sold/assigned all rights and interest on the second debenture having a net book value of $24,500, plus $1,448 of accrued interest. See reference (11) which discusses the terms and conditions surrounding the new debentures issued upon extinguishment of the two originals as well as accounting treatment of the transactions.

 

During the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, the lender converted $37,500 principal and $1,500 accrued interest outstanding in full satisfaction of the convertible debenture. The stock was issued without restrictive legend pursuant to Rule 144, as the holder acquired convertible note issued by the Company more than six months prior to the date of conversion and did not pay any additional consideration for the shares.

 

On July 2, 2012, the Company borrowed $78,500 from this same lender in exchange for a convertible debenture maturing on April 5, 2013. The debenture bears 8% interest per annum and beginning 180 days after the date of the debenture, lender may convert the note to common shares at a 39% discount pursuant to the same terms and conditions discussed in paragraph one of this section (4). The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $35,268. Accordingly, the $78,500 debenture is discounted by the amount of the BCF. The Company will accrete the discount to the convertible debenture through its maturity and will recognize interest expense until paid in full or converted. As part of this transaction, the Company was required to reserve 185,000,000 shares for potential future conversion.

 

On August 8, 2012, the Company borrowed $42,500 from this same lender in exchange for a convertible debenture maturing on May 10, 2013. The debenture bears 8% interest per annum and beginning 180 days after the date of the debenture, lender may convert the note to common shares at a 39% discount pursuant to the same terms and conditions discussed in paragraph one of this section (4). The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $27,172. Accordingly, the $42,500 debenture is discounted by the amount of the BCF. The Company will accrete the discount to the convertible debenture through its maturity and will recognize interest expense until paid in full or converted. As part of this transaction, the Company was required to reserve 268,100,000 shares for potential future conversion.

 

(5)The Company borrowed $50,000 in exchange for a convertible debenture. The lender may at any time convert any portion of the debenture to common shares at a 30% discount of the “Market Price” of the stock based on the average of the previous ten (10) days weighted average closing prices on the date prior to the notice of conversion. The Company may prepay the debenture plus accrued interest at any time before maturity. In addition, as further inducement for loaning the Company the funds, the Company granted the lender 50,000 and 100,000 warrants at $.25 and $.35 per share, respectively. As a result, the Company allocated fair market value (“FMV”) to both the BCF and to the warrants, or $34,472, which was recorded as a discount against the debenture. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture through its maturity and 00recognized interest expense until both the debenture and accrued interest were converted to stock in full satisfaction of amounts due, in the first and second quarter of 2012, respectively. Before discount, the Company determined the FMV of the warrants as $7,500 using the Black-Scholes valuation model.

 

(6)The Company borrowed $300,000 in exchange for a convertible debenture. The Debenture bears 10% interest per annum. The lender may at any time convert any portion of the debenture to common shares at a 30% discount of the “Market Price” of the stock based on the average of the previous ten (10) days weighted average closing prices on the date prior to the notice of conversion. The Company may prepay the debenture plus accrued interest at any time before maturity. In addition, as further inducement for loaning the Company the funds, the Company granted the lender 300,000 and 600,000 warrants at $.25 and $.35 per share, respectively. As a result, the Company allocated fair market value (“FMV”) to both the BCF and to the warrants, or $206,832, which was recorded as a discount against the debenture. The Company accreted the discount to the convertible debenture through maturity and will recognize interest expense until paid in full or converted. Before discount, the Company determined the FMV of the warrants as $45,000 using the Black-Scholes valuation model.

11.CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES (continued)

 

(7)The Company borrowed $10,000 in exchange for a convertible debenture. The lender at their option may convert all or part of the note plus accrued interest into common stock at a price of thirty percent (30%) discount as determined from the average four (4) deep highest closing bid prices over the preceding five (5) trading days. The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $4,286. The Company will accrete the discount to the convertible debenture and recognize interest expense through paid in full or converted.

 

(8)The Company converted a note payable and related accrued interest of $39,724 into a convertible debenture. The lender at their option may convert all or part of the note plus accrued interest into common stock at a price of thirty percent (30%) discount as determined from the average four (4) deep highest closing bid prices over the preceding five (5) trading days. The Company valued the BCF of the convertible debenture at $17,025. Because the debenture was issued and matured in the third quarter of 2011, the full amount of the discount, $17,025 was accreted and recognized as interest expense during the period.

 

On February 10, 2012, the lender sold/assigned all rights and interest on the debenture having a net book value of $39,724, plus $1,552 of accrued interest. See reference (11) which discusses the terms and conditions surrounding the new debenture issued upon extinguishment of the original as well as accounting treatment of the transaction.

 

(9)The Company entered a new debenture agreement upon sale/assignment of the original lender under the debenture as discussed in reference (2) above. Because the stated terms of the new debenture agreement are significantly different from the original debenture, including analysis of value of the beneficial conversion feature at the assignment/purchase date, the transaction is treated as extinguishment of the old debenture and recording of the new for accounting purposes. Because the debenture is being assigned/sold in installments, the Company is calculating and recognizing gain or loss on the extinguishment as it occurs. On February 10, 2012, the new holder (lender) purchased $7,500 of the original $125,000 principal balance, and based on this transaction, the Company recorded a $4,286 loss on extinguishment. On May 18, 2012, the lender purchased another $11,750, and the Company recorded a $6,714 loss on extinguishment related to this transaction. On July 17, 2012, the lender purchased another $11,750, and the Company recorded a $6,714 loss on extinguishment related to this transaction.

 

The stated interest rate on the debentures is 10% and the Company may prepay at any time in an amount equal to 150% of the principal and accrued interest. The conversion price under the debenture is $.000275 per share and the lender may convert at any time until the debenture plus accrued interest is paid in full. Various other fees and penalties apply if payments or conversions are not done timely by the Company. The lender will be limited to maximum conversion of 4.99% of the outstanding Common Stock of the Company at any one time. The debenture and the shares referenced within the debenture may be assignable in whole or in part to a third party at any time during the term. As of September 30, 2012, the lender had assigned $5,500 under the debenture to four separate parties, and $11,750 to another party. See reference (10) and (12), respectively, related to the assignments. In addition, the lender had converted $13,970 of the debentures to stock. The stock was issued without restrictive legend pursuant to Rule 144, as the holder acquired convertible note issued by the Company more than six months prior to the date of conversion and did not pay any additional consideration for the shares.

 

(10)This line is comprised of the assignment of $5,500 of the convertible debenture with the same stated terms and conditions equally to four separate parties. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, each converted $1,257 of the $1,375 assigned to them for stock for a combined principal balance remaining at quarter end of $472. The stock was issued without restrictive legend because the Rule 144 holding period had been met at time of issuance. Due to the smaller transaction amounts, these four debenture holders have been combined for presentation purposes.

11.CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES (continued)

 

(11)The Company entered into three new debenture agreements upon sale/assignment of the original lenders under the debentures as discussed in references (4) and (8) above. Because the stated terms of the new debenture agreement and principal amounts are significantly different from the original debenture, including analysis of value of the beneficial conversion feature at the assignment/purchase date, the transactions are treated as extinguishment of the old debentures and recording of the new for accounting purposes. As a result of these three transactions, the Company recognized a combined loss on extinguishment of $71,577.

 

The new debentures were issued with the same following terms and conditions: The stated interest rate of the debentures is 10% and the Company may prepay at any time in an amount equal to 150% of the principal and accrued interest. The conversion price under the debentures is $.000275 per share and the lender may convert at any time until the debenture plus accrued interest is paid in full. Various other fees and penalties apply if payments or conversions are not done timely by the Company. The lender will be limited to maximum conversion of 4.99% of the outstanding Common Stock of the Company at any one time. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the lender had converted $9,729 of the debenture with original principal balance of $39,724 to stock. The stock was issued without restrictive legend pursuant to Rule 144, as the holder acquired convertible note issued by the Company more than six months prior to the date of conversion and did not pay any additional consideration for the shares.

 

(12)On April, 19, 2012, the original lender discussed in ref (1) above re-assigned the debenture to another party asserting default against the first assignee. The amount of assignment was the balance remaining per the original lender’s records, or $16,347. The Company recognized a $3,700 loss on this transaction. Terms of the assigned debenture are the same as the original debenture as stated in ref (1). During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the new holder converted $16,347 of the debenture principal plus $162 of accrued interest in fully satisfaction.

 

On August 17, 2012, the lender accepted assignment of $11,750 of a convertible debenture from the lender discussed in (9) above. The Company recorded a $6,714 loss on extinguishment of the original debenture portion related to this transaction. See reference (2) for terms surrounding the original convertible debenture. In addition, the Company converted $5,255 of the $11,750 assignment to stock during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The stock was issued without restrictive legend pursuant to Rule 144, as the holder acquired convertible note issued by the Company more than six months prior to the date of conversion and did not pay any additional consideration for the shares.

Due to the guarantee stock value clause in the Agreement, the Company compared the value at the time the stock was granted with the value at the end of the quarter, and determined there was no need for accrual of additional shares payable to achieve the $20,000 market value to guarantee. At June 30, 2012, this agreement and compensation under this agreement had ceased. Accordingly, no expense related to this agreement was recorded for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

15.AUTHORIZATION OF PREFERRED STOCK

 

During the second quarter of 2010, the holder of the majority of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock approved an amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation authorizing the issuance of 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The preferred stock as authorized has such voting powers, designations, preferences, limitations, restrictions and relative rights as may be determined by our Board of Directors of the Company from time to time in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Before modification, the existing Articles of Incorporation did not authorize the issuance of shares of preferred stock. The Company authorized the preferred stock for the purpose of added flexibility in seeking capital and potential acquisition targets.  The amendment authorizing the issuance of shares of preferred stock grants the Board authority, without further action by our stockholders, to designate and issue preferred stock in one or more series and to designate certain rights, preferences and restrictions of each series, any or all of which may be greater than the rights of the common stock. See Note 6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS – Notes Payable for discussion regarding issuance of 425,000 shares of preferred stock for forgiveness of $42,500 Note payable to Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

 

16.LEGAL

 

On June 23, 2011, a claim was filed in the U.S. District Court of Dallas County, Texas by the Estate of Christopher Logan. Amount of damages sought were not provided in the claim. The claim lists eight defendants of which the Company is one. The claim asserts Mr. Logan died breathing carbon monoxide while diving with a T80G medium duty compressor (“T80G”). The claim’s cited belief by the plaintiff that the T80G was sold by Brownie’s based on representations made by Keene Engineering, Inc. also a manufacturer of dive compressors and also listed as a defendant. The Company believes the representation is erroneous because Brownie’s does not sell the make/model cited in the claim, and Brownie’s compressors have the brand name forged into the die-casting on the head of each cylinder. On April 18, 2012, the Company filed a Motion for Leave to Designate Responsible Third Parties on this the Company motioned to have the Court designate the responsible third parties named by the Company in the Motion.

16.LEGAL (continued)

 

Legal counsel advised the Company the court shall grant such a motion unless an objecting party establishes that the moving Defendants failed to plead sufficient facts to meet the pleading requirement of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure. In the meantime, the case moved to trial and per legal navigators, after four days of proceedings, there was a defense verdict against Honda. The jury placed 77% of fault on Seeders and 23% on the plaintiff. Seeders settled for their $1M policy pre-trial. BWMG was advised by its insurer that it was un-suited before the trial began so no liability will be assigned the Company in this case and/or paid out.

 

On or about May 3, 2012, the Company received notice of filing of an action for breach of contract, conspiracy to commit securities fraud and injunctive relief against the Company and the first party named in Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES Ref (1). The Plaintiff is the second party referenced in Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES, Ref (1) who purchased the original debenture from the first party. The net book value, excluding interest, on the debenture as of September 30, 2012 was approximately $12,700. The amount named in the lawsuit is “damages in excess of $15,000”, plus other fees. On July 16, 2012, the Palm Beach County Court issued an Order on the Company’s Motion to dismiss this complaint. The motion was granted without prejudice to allow the plaintiff 15 days to file an amended complaint with substantiating documentation. As of the required date the plaintiff had not filed an amended complaint. Therefore, the Company considers this matter closed.

 

On or about April 27, 2012, the Company received a default notice from BBT under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate. The Company subsequently received judgment of foreclosure, as the 17th Judicial Circuit of the Circuit Court of Broward County awarded BBT a final judgment in the amount of $1,123,269. On August 16, 2012 the Company’s real estate was sold through a court ordered auction for approximately $824,000, an amount approximately $300,000 less than the final judgment amount. Until the entire final judgment amount is satisfied, there can be no assurance that BBT will not take possession of certain of the Company’s assets to satisfy the judgment. Further, because this may be considered a default under the terms and conditions of the Company’s convertible debentures, there can be no assurance that the lenders may not accelerate as due immediately the full outstanding principal, interest and related default penalties.

 

17.JOINT VENTURE EQUITY EXCHANGE AGREEMENT

 

On November 7, 2011, the Company entered into a Joint Venture Equity Exchange Agreement (“Agreement”) with Pompano Dive Center, LLC. (“PDC”). PDC owns a retail store, several dive boats, and has a classroom for training divers. Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company will provide PDC with an assortment of Brownie’s Third Lung products on consignment, and PDC will act as a training and demonstration site for Brownie’s Third Lung products. Beginning in 2012, both parties ceased operating under the consignment inventory arrangement. Inventory not sold was returned and inventory was purchased for sale. See Note: 6.  RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS - Net revenues and accounts receivable – related parties for further information on sales to PDC for the period ended September 30, 2012, and related Accounts Receivable balance. Terms of sale to PDC are no more favorable than those granted other dealers of the Company’s products.

 

In addition, the Agreement provides for a non-binding letter of intent for the possible acquisition of PDC in exchange for BWMG’s stock for the yet to be agreed upon value of PDC. In anticipation of a possible purchase, the Agreement provides BWMG with a 33% interest in PDC. As part of the transaction, BWMG issued 4,581,505 restricted shares of its common stock with fair market value on the date of the transaction of $24,740 to PDC, reflected in other assets in the long-term portion of the Company’s balance sheet.

 

If BWMG purchases PDC, the stock issued by BWMG will be credited to the purchase price. Further, PDC is required to remit no later than 45 days from the end of each quarter, a 33% share in pre-tax net profits. At least 50% of the total pre-tax profits are required for distribution under the Agreement, and BWMG is not required to share in losses. If PDC decides to sell any inventory provided by the Company, the purchase price will be the same as that offered to other Dealers of the Company’s products.

17.JOINT VENTURE EQUITY EXCHANGE AGREEMENT (continued)

 

If this Agreement is terminated by either party and/or a written purchase and sales agreement is not entered into by the parties, then the parties’ respective interests in each other’s business will revert back to the original party. Accordingly, if this should happen, PDC will relinquish the interest acquired in BWMG through this Agreement and BWMG will do the same. All property at PDC owned by BWMG would be returned to BWMG at that time as well. Because the joint venture is cancellable at any time by either party with return of respective interest transferred to each as per the joint venture agreement, possible acquisition of PDC is in the form of a non-binding letter of intent, each entities assets and liabilities remain their own, BWMG will not share in any of PDC losses or additional expenses unless otherwise approved, and the management and operation of PDC remains with PDC, the Company accounted for the investment in PDC under the Cost basis.

 

As of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, PDC reported pre-tax net losses. Therefore, there was no profit sharing applicable under the agreement.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2012, as Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2011

 

Net revenues. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had net revenues of $990,388 as compared to net revenues of $659,261 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $331,127 or 50.23%. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, tankfill system and related sales increased approximately $163,000, hookah system and related sales increased approximately $144,000, scuba sales increased approximately $29,000 and sales of other products and services decreased approximately $4,000 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2011. The Company attributes the increase in net revenues to sales and marketing efforts, the opening of a new retail store, and increased consumer spending despite economic uncertainty.

Cost of net revenues. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had cost of net revenues of $601,568 as compared with cost of net revenues of $490,251 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $111,317 or 22.71%. Of the $111,317 net increase in cost of net revenues for the period, approximately, $123,000 is attributable to incremental material costs to suppport increase in net revenues, approximately $20,000 decrease is attributable to 6% overall decrease in material costs as a percentage of net revenues, and approximately $8,000 net increase was attributable to other individually insignificant account increases and decreases for the period. The 6% decrease in material costs was primarily the result of sales mix for the period with higher margin items sold.

 

Gross profit. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had a gross profit of $388,820 as compared to gross profit of $169,010 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $219,810 or 130.06%. The increase in gross profit is primarily attributable to increase in net revenues and decrease in material costs as a percentage of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to same period in 2011.

 

Operating expenses. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had operating expenses of $483,735 as compared to operating expenses of $361,341 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $122,394, or 33.87%. The $122,394 increase is comprised of $123,399 increase in selling, general and administrative costs partially offset by $1,495 decrease in research and development costs as compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in selling, general and administrative costs of $123,399 in the third quarter of 2012, is primarily attributable to increase in officers’ compensation of approximately $107,000 (non-cash); increase in contract labor, legal and other professional fees of approximately $20,000 (non-cash); and an approximate $4,000 net decrease in other individually insignificant account balance increases and decreases for the period. The decrease in research and development costs is attributable to less payroll hours spent in this area in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the third quarter of 2011.

 

Other expense, net. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had other expense, net of $314,134 as compared to other expense, net of $179,446 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $134,688, or 75.06%. This account is comprised of other (income) expense, net, and interest expense. Other (income) expense, net, increased by $285,692 expense. Other (income) expense, net, is comprised of transactions that are generally of a non-recurring nature. The $285,692 net increase is primarily attributable to approximately $307,000 loss on foreclosure of real estate partially offset by approximately $15,000 other income attributable to earned license fee; and $6,000 net increase in other individually insignificant increases and decreases in account balances. Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2012, decreased $151,004 over the three months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in interest expense of $151,004 is primarily attributable to approximately $125,000 decrease in convertible debenture discounts accreted to interest during the three months ended September 30, 2011, which were fully accreted by the three months ended September 30, 2012; and approximately $25,000 decrease in interest due to foreclosure/sale of real estate underlying the Company’s mortgage during the period.

 

Provision for income tax expense. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had a provision for income tax expense of $22,849 as compared to a provision for income tax expense of $37,892 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, a decrease in the provision for income tax expense of $15,043, or 39.70%. The decrease in provision for income tax expense is primarily a result of adjustment to account for decrease in valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset attributable to realization of the net operating loss carryforward for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011.

 

Net loss. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had net loss of $431,898 as compared to net loss of $409,759 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $22,139 or 5.40%. The $22,139 increase in net loss is primarily attributable to $122,394 increase in operating expenses, $134,688 increase in other expense, net, and partially offset by $219,810 increase in gross profit, and $15,133 decrease in provision for income tax expense.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, tankfill system and related sales increased approximately $384,000, hookah system and related sales increased approximately $275,000, scuba sales increased approximately $75,000, and other product sales decreased approximately $4,000 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The Company attributes the increase in net revenues to sales and marketing efforts, the opening of a retail dive store in the second quarter of 2012, and increased consumer spending despite economic uncertainty.

Of the $335,551 net increase in cost of net revenues for the period, approximately $307,000 is attributable to incremental material coststo support increase in net revenues, approximately $15,000 is due to 2% overall increase in material costs as a percentage of sales, and approximately $14,000 net increase is attributable to other individually insignificant account increases and decreases for the period.

 

Gross profit. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we had a gross profit of $785,593 as compared to gross profit of $391,495 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $394,098, or 100.66%.

The $419,814 increase is comprised of an increase in selling, general and administrative costs of $452,392, net a $32,578 decrease in research and development costs as compared to the same period in 2011. The increase in selling, general and administrative costs of $452,392 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, over the same period in 2011, is primarily comprised of $125,001 amortization of equity based compensation (non-cash) not in first quarter of 2011, but in each quarter in 2012; increase in officers’ compensation of approximately $143,000 (non-cash) in nine months ended September 30, 2012; approximately $205,000 consulting, legal and other professional fee expense (non-cash) for which there was only approximately $27,000 comparable expenses during the same period in 2011; and $6,000 net increase in other individually insignificant account balance increases and decreases during the period. The decrease in research and development costs is attributable to less payroll hours spent in this area during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

 

Other expense, net. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we had other expense, net of $504,550 as compared to other expense, net of $2,500,022 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, a decrease of $1,995,472, or 79.82%.

Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, decreased $2,288,650 over the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in interest expense of $2,288,650 is primarily attributable to $2,083,000 interest expense decrease (non-cash) on related party debt converted to preferred stock in the second quarter of 2011 for which there was not a comparable transaction for the nine months ended 2012; decrease in accretion of discount on convertible debentures to interest was approximately $178,000 less for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011 due to discounts on debentures being fully accreted; and approximately $33,000 decrease due to foreclosure/sale of real estate underlying the Company’s mortgage during the period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and current assets (primarily consisting of inventory) of $956,752 and current liabilities of $1,812,784 or a current ratio of .53 to 1. This represents a working capital deficit of $856,032. As of December 31, 2011, the Company had cash and current assets of $796,051 and current liabilities of $2,698,631 or a current ratio of .30 to 1. As of December 31, 2010, the Company had cash and current assets of $620,270 and current liabilities of $997,034, or a current ratio of .62 to 1.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business for the twelve-month period following the date of these financial statements. We have incurred losses since 2009, and expect to have losses in 2012. We have had a working capital deficit since 2009. Although cured effective the fourth quarter 2010, the Company defaulted on its first mortgage in the third quarter of 2010, which resulted in an automatic default on its second mortgage, and was restructured with a forbearance agreement (the Forbearance Agreement”) with a maturity date of May 22, 2012. The Company was notified of default under the Forbearance Agreement on or around April 27, 2012, and the real estate was foreclosed on and sold on August 16, 2012. See Note 10. NOTES PAYABLE for further discussion related to the mortgage and Forbearance Agreement.

 

In addition, the Company is behind on payments due for payroll taxes and withholding, matured convertible debentures, related party notes payable, accrued liabilities and interest –related parties, and certain vendor payables. While the Company has received no formal notices of default related to these it has not been able to resolve, it is working out these matters on a case by case basis. However, there can be no assurance that cooperation the Company has received thus far will continue. Payment delinquencies are further addressed in Note 6. RELATED PARTIES TRANSACTIONS, Note 8. ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND ACCRUED LIABILITIES, Note 9. OTHER LIABILITIES, Note 10. NOTES PAYABLE, and Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES.

 

During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company formed a joint venture with one dive entity, and in the first quarter of 2012, purchased the assets of another, with assumption of their retail location lease. The Company accomplished both transactions predominantly through issuance of restricted common stock in BWMG. The Company believes these transactions will help generate enough sales to supply sufficient working capital in the future. See Note 17. JOINT VENTURE EQUITY TRANSACTION and Note 7.ASSET PURCHASE for further discussion of these transactions. However, the Company does not expect that existing cash flow will be sufficient to fund presently anticipated operations beyond the forth quarter of 2012. This raises substantial doubt about BWMG’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company will need to raise additional funds and is currently exploring alternative sources of financing. We have issued a number of convertible debentures as an interim measure to finance our working capital needs as discussed in Note 11. CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES and may continue to raise additional capital through sale of restricted common stock or other securities. We are paying for many legal and consulting services with restricted stock to maximize working capital. We have implemented some cost saving measures and will continue to explore more to reduce operating expenses.

 

If we fail to raise additional funds when needed, or do not have sufficient cash flows from sales, we may be required to scale back or cease operations, liquidate our assets and possibly seek bankruptcy protection. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Certain Business Risks

 

The Company is subject to various risks, which may materially harm its business, financial condition and results of operations. You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this filing before deciding to purchase the Company’s common stock. These are not the only risks and uncertainties that the Company faces. If any of these risks or uncertainties actually occurs, the Company’s business, financial condition or operating results could be materially harmed. In that case, the trading price of the Company’s common stock could decline and you could lose all or part of your investment.

 

34
 

 

Our ability to continue as a going concern is in substantial doubt absent obtaining adequate new debt or equity financing and achieving sufficient sales levels.

 

We incurred a net loss of approximately $432 thousand in the third quarter of 2012, and a net loss of approximately $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. We incurred net losses of approximately $3.87 million in 2011, and $1.19 million in 2010. We anticipate these losses will continue for the foreseeable future. Additionally, the Company has negative cash flows from operations, negative working capital, is behind on payments due for payroll taxes and withholding, matured convertible debentures, property taxes, related party notes payable, accrued liabilities and interest – related parties, a note payable due an unrelated party, and certain vendor payables. In April 2012, the Company received a default notice under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate. See risk factor below. Other than the Forbearance Agreement default notice, the Company had no other notices of default to address, and is working out all matters of delinquency on a case by case basis. However, there can be no assurance that cooperation the Company has received thus far will continue. This raises a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our continued existence is dependent upon generating working capital and obtaining adequate new debt or equity financing. Because of our continuing losses, we may not have working capital to permit us to remain in business through the end of the year, without improvements in our cash flow from operations or new financing. Working capital limitations continue to impinge on our day-to-day operations, thus contributing to continued operating losses.

 

The Company defaulted under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate and assets, the real estate was sold, and other assets may be at risk.

 

On or about April 27, 2012, the Company received a default notice from Branch Banking and Trust (BBT)under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate. BBT subsequently received judgment of foreclosure, as the 17th Judicial Circuit of the Circuit Court of Broward County awarded BBT a final judgment in the amount of $1,123,269. On August 16, 2012 the Company’s real estate was sold through a court ordered auction for approximately $824,000, an amount approximately $300,000 less than the final judgment amount. Until the entire final judgment amount is satisfied, there can be no assurance that BBT will not take possession of certain of the Company’s assets to satisfy the judgment. Further, because this may be considered a default under the terms and conditions of the Company’s convertible debentures, there can be no assurance that the lenders may not accelerate as due immediately the full outstanding principal, interest and related default penalties.

 

The optional conversion features of a series of convertible debentures issued by the Company could require the Company to issue a substantial number of shares of common stock, which will cause dilution to the Company’s stockholders and a potentially negative effect on our stock price.

 

Since October 4, 2010 the Company has issued convertible debentures to several lenders and other third parties. At September 30, 2012 the outstanding principal balance of these debentures was approximately $682,000. The debentures convert under various conversion formulas, all of which are at a significant discount to market price of our common stock. As of October 26, 2012, the debentures are convertible into approximately 1,600,000,000 shares of Common Stock. The conversion of any of the debentures will result in the issuance of a significant number of shares of our common stock which will cause dilution to our existing shareholders. Furthermore, the conversion at a significant discount to the market price of our common stock may have a negative effect on our stock price. See Note 11. Convertible Debentures to our consolidated financial statements included herein.

 

Our Common Stock May Be Affected By Limited Trading Volume and May Fluctuate Significantly

 

Our common stock is traded on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board. There is a limited public market for our common stock and there can be no assurance that an active trading market for our common stock will develop. As a result, this could adversely affect our shareholders’ ability to sell our common stock in short time periods, or possibly at all. Thinly traded common stock can be more volatile than common stock traded in an active public market. Our common stock has experienced, and is likely to experience in the future, significant price and volume fluctuations, which could adversely affect the market price of our common stock without regard to our operating performance. In addition, we believe that factors such as quarterly fluctuations in our financial results and changes in the overall economy or the condition of the financial markets could cause the price of our common stock to fluctuate substantially.

Our Common Stock Is Deemed To Be “Penny Stock,” Which May Make It More Difficult For Investors to Sell Their Shares Due To Suitability Requirements

 

Our common stock is deemed to be “penny stock” as that term is defined under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system). Our common stock is covered by an SEC rule that imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors, which are generally institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000, or individuals with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse.

 

Broker/dealers dealing in penny stocks are required to provide potential investors with a document disclosing the risks of penny stocks. Moreover, broker/dealers are required to determine whether an investment in a penny stock is a suitable investment for a prospective investor. These requirements may reduce the potential market for our common stock by reducing the number of potential investors. This may make it more difficult for investors in our common stock to sell shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them. This could cause our stock price to decline.

 

We Depend On the Services of Our Chief Executive Officer

 

Our success largely depends on the efforts and abilities of Robert M. Carmichael, our President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Carmichael has been instrumental in securing our existing financing arrangements. Mr. Carmichael is primarily responsible for the development of our technology and the design of our products. The loss of the services of Mr. Carmichael could materially harm our business because of the cost and time necessary to recruit and train a replacement. Such a loss would also divert management attention away from operational issues. We do not presently maintain a key-man life insurance policy on Mr. Carmichael.

 

We Require Additional Personnel and Could Fail To Attract or Retain Key Personnel

 

Our continued growth depends on our ability to attract and retain a Chief Financial Officer, a Chief Operations Officer, and additional skilled associates. We are currently utilizing the services of two professional consultants in the absence of a Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer. The loss of the services of these consultants prior to our ability to attract and retain a Chief Financial Officer or Chief Operations Officer may have a material adverse effect upon us. Also, there can be no assurance that we will be able to retain our existing personnel or attract additional qualified associates in the future.

 

Our Failure to Obtain Intellectual Property and Enforce Protection Would Have a Material Adverse Effect on Our Business

 

Our success depends in part on our ability, and the ability of our patent and trademark licensors, entities owned and controlled by Robert M. Carmichael, our President and Chief Executive Officer, to obtain and defend our intellectual property, including patent protection for our products and processes, preserve our trade secrets, defend and enforce our rights against infringement and operate without infringing the proprietary rights of third parties, both in the United States and in other countries. Despite our efforts to protect our intellectual proprietary rights, existing copyright, trademark and trade secret laws afford only limited protection.

 

Our industry is characterized by frequent intellectual property litigation based on allegations of infringement of intellectual property rights. Although we are not aware of any intellectual property claims against us, we may be a party to litigation in the future.

We May Be Unable To Manage Growth

 

Successful implementation of our business strategy requires us to manage our growth. Growth could place an increasing strain on our management and financial resources. If we fail to manage our growth effectively, our business, financial condition or operating results could be materially harmed, and our stock price may decline.

 

Reliance on Vendors and Manufacturers

 

We deal with suppliers on an order-by order basis and have no long-term purchase contracts or other contractual assurances of continued supply or pricing. In addition, we have no long-term contracts with our manufacturing sources and compete with other companies for production facility capacity. Historically, we have purchased enough inventories of products or their substitutes to satisfy demand. However, unanticipated failure of any manufacturer or supplier to meet our requirements or our inability to build or obtain substitutes could force us to curtail or cease operations.

 

Dependence on Consumer Spending

 

The success of the our business depends largely upon a number of factors related to consumer spending, including current and future economic conditions affecting disposable consumer income such as employment, business conditions, tax rates, and interest rates. In times of economic uncertainty, consumers tend to defer expenditures for discretionary items, which affect demand for our products. Any significant deterioration in overall economic conditions that diminishes consumer confidence or discretionary income can reduce our sales and adversely affect our financial results. The impact of weakening consumer credit markets; layoffs; corporate restructurings; higher fuel prices; declines in the value of investments and residential real estate; and increases in federal and state taxation can all negatively affect our results. There can be no assurance that in this type of environment consumer spending will not decline beyond current levels, thereby adversely affecting our growth, net sales and profitability or that our business will not be adversely affected by continuing or future downturns in the economy, boating industry, or dive industry. If declines in consumer spending on recreational marine accessories and dive gear are other than temporary, we could be forced to curtail operations.

 

Government Regulations May Impact Us

 

The SCUBA industry is self-regulating; therefore, Brownie’s is not subject to government industry specific regulation. Nevertheless, Brownie’s strives to be a leader in promoting safe diving practices within the industry and is at the forefront of self-regulation through responsible diving practices. Brownie’s is subject to all regulations applicable to “for profit” companies as well as all trade and general commerce governmental regulation. All required federal and state permits, licenses, and bonds to operate its facility have been obtained. There can be no assurance that our operations will not be subject to more restrictive regulations in the future, which could force us to curtail or cease operations.

 

Bad Weather Conditions Could Have an Adverse Effect on Operating Results

 

Our business is significantly impacted by weather patterns. Unseasonably cool weather, extraordinary amounts of rainfall, or unseasonably rough surf, may decrease boat use and diving, thereby decreasing sales. Accordingly, our results of operations for any prior period may not be indicative of results of any future period.

 

Investors Should Not Rely On an Investment in Our Stock for the Payment of Cash Dividends

 

We have not paid any cash dividends on our capital stock and we do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the future. Investors should not make an investment in our common stock if they require dividend income. Any return on an investment in our common stock will be as a result of any appreciation, if any, in our stock price.

The Manufacture and Distribution of Recreational Diving Equipment Could Result In Product Liability Claims

 

We, like any other retailer, distributor and manufacturer of products that are designed for recreational sporting purposes, face an inherent risk of exposure to product liability claims in the event that the use of our products results in injury. Such claims may include, among other things, that our products are designed and/or manufactured improperly or fail to include adequate instructions as to proper use and/or side effects, if any. We do not anticipate obtaining contractual indemnification from parties-supplying raw materials, manufacturing our products or marketing our products. In any event, any such indemnification if obtained will be limited by our terms and, as a practical matter, to the creditworthiness of the indemnifying party. In the event that we do not have adequate insurance or contractual indemnification, product liabilities relating to defective products could have a material adverse effect on our operations and financial conditions, which could force us to curtail or cease our business operations.

Item 4.Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management carried out an evaluation with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer who serves as our principal executive officer and principal financial and accounting officer, required by Rule 13a-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act.

 

Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and principal financial and accounting officer concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the information relating to our company required to be disclosed in our SEC reports (i) is recorded processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. Our management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as described in more detail below. A material weakness is a control deficiency, or combination of control deficiencies, that result in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements would not be prevented or detected.

 

The specific weakness identified by our management was a lack of a timely review by corporate management. The weakness is principally due to lack of working capital to retain the legal, accounting and external audit services, which are integral to the Company’s process for timely disclosure and financial reporting. This deficiency resulted in failure to timely file Form 8-Ks relating to foreclosure notice on real estate securing a mortgage, significant conversion of convertible debentures, installment conversion of portion of one debenture, and issuance of unrestricted stock for consulting services. The transactions are discussed below Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds and are disclosed in the notes to the Company’s Financial Statements for the period covered by this report included herein.

 

To mitigate the chance for reoccurrence of this noted deficiency, as disclosed in the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of this 10-Q Report, the Company is currently in the process of addressing its working capital shortfall whereby this would provide the needed funds to retain the legal, accounting, and external services required for timely disclosure and financial reporting.

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 3.   Defaults Upon Senior Securities

 

On or about April 27, 2012, the Company received a default notice from Branch Banking and Trust (BBT)under its Forbearance Agreement on the mortgage underlying the Company’s real estate. BBT subsequently received judgment of foreclosure, as the 17th Judicial Circuit of the Circuit Court of Broward County awarded BBT a final judgment in the amount of $1,123,269.30. On August 16, 2012 the Company’s real estate was sold through a court ordered auction for approximately $824,000, an amount approximately $300,000 less than the final judgment amount. Until the entire final judgment amount is satisfied, there can be no assurance that BBT will not take possession of certain of the Company’s assets to satisfy the judgment. Further, because this may be considered a default under the terms and conditions of the Company’s convertible debentures, there can be no assurance that the lenders may not accelerate as due immediately the full outstanding principal, interest and related default penalties.
