NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1. Organization and Business

Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. (HHWW) is a clothing and accessories design and distribution company whose products are inspired by the artwork of Japanese master tattoo artist Yoshihito Nakano - better known as Horiyoshi III. The Horiyoshi name has been internationally recognized for decades and Horiyoshi III is considered by his peers and followers as a legend in his field. The business was established September 1, 2008 to capitalize on the multi-generational legacy of the Tattoo Masters by offering consumers a unique collection of knitwear, t-shirts and accessory items. The rights to the design catalogue are exclusively licensed to Horiyoshi the Third, Inc. (HTT) a wholly owned subsidiary of HHWW (“the Company”). Horiyoshi Worldwide [U.K.] Limited, another subsidiary wholly owned by HHWW, was created in 2011 and operates the Company’s first branded retail outlet in London.

We were incorporated as Kranti Resources, Inc. (Kranti), in the State of Nevada on November 3, 2006 to engage in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral deposits and reserves. The company discontinued its planned mining activities and eventually adopted a new strategy to pursue opportunities in the fashion apparel industry. On May 18, 2010, Benny Gill and Rimpal Samra resigned as Directors of the company and Jaskarn Samra resigned as President. On May 18, 2010, Mitsuo Kojima was appointed as President of Kranti Resources, Inc.

On June 21, 2010, Kranti effected a 2.1622 for one (1) forward stock split of outstanding stock. As a result, the company’s outstanding share count increased from 365,625 shares of common stock to 790,554 shares of common stock, all with a par value of $0.01. In addition, on June 21, 2010, the company changed its name to Horiyoshi Worldwide Inc. to coincide with the redirection of its business toward fashion apparel. On September 1, 2010, the company entered into a share exchange agreement with Horiyoshi the Third Limited, a Hong Kong corporation, and the shareholders of Horiyoshi the Third Limited for purchase of the company.

On November 5, 2010, then President, Mitsuo Kojima affected a Share Cancellation Agreement with Kranti and surrendered for cancellation all 540,550 shares held by him in common stock which left a total of 250,004 shares outstanding.

The share exchange agreement with Horiyoshi the Third Limited was subsequently amended and on November 5, 2010 the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Horiyoshi the Third Limited occurred. In accordance with the closing, Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. issued 250,000 shares of common stock to the former shareholders of Horiyoshi the Third Limited in exchange for the acquisition of all 83 Horiyoshi the Third Limited shares issued and outstanding. Upon close of the acquisition Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. had a total of 500,004 shares issued and outstanding.

On June 15, 2011, Horiyoshi Worldwide [UK] Limited (HHWW UK) was incorporated. HHWW UK is a wholly owned subsidiary of HHWW, and is a United Kingdom Corporation. HHWW UK is the owner and operator of the Company’s first branded retail outlet.

On January 12, 2012, Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. enacted a 10 to 1 reverse stock split which decreased the number of shares issued and outstanding to 529,333.

On February 12, 2013, Mitsuo Kojima resigned from his positions as President, Chief Executive Officer, Treasurer and Director of the Company. Concurrently with Mitsuo Kojima’s resignation, Kerry Chung was appointed as President, Chief Executive Officer, and Treasurer to fill the ensuing vacancy.

In March 2013, the management and directors of Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. authorized the conversion of $50,000 of debt held by Lonestar Capital Limited, into restricted shares of HHWW common stock to be valued at $0.015. This transaction increased the number of shares issued and outstanding to 810,180.

In April 2013, Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. enacted a 12 to 1 reverse stock split which decreased the number of shares issued and outstanding to 810,180. All share and per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the effects of this transaction.

 
 

Going Concern, Liquidity and Management's Plan

As of June 30, 2014 our Company has accumulated losses of $8,673,561 since inception and has earned no net income since inception. Our Company intends to fund operations through equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements for the year ending December 31, 2014. In response to these problems, management intends to raise additional funds through public or private placement offerings. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

The accompanying unaudited Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and are presented in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements included herein contain all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position, the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The most significant estimates include: revenue recognition; sales returns and other allowances; allowance for doubtful accounts; valuation of inventory; valuation and recoverability of long-lived assets; property and equipment; contingencies; and income taxes.

On a regular basis, management reviews its estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such reviews, and if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company includes in cash and cash equivalents all short-term, highly liquid investments that mature within three months of their acquisition date. Cash equivalents consist principally of investments in interest-bearing demand deposit accounts and liquidity funds with financial institutions and are stated at cost, which approximates fair value. The Company’s main banking relationship is with HSBC Bank at branches in Los Angeles, Hong Kong and London. For cash management purposes the company concentrates its cash holdings in accounts at HSBC Bank. The balances in these accounts may exceed the federally insured limit of $ 250,000 per account by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in case of bank failure. This would have a significantly negative impact on the company’s ability to continue operations.

Revenue recognition

Our revenue recognition policy is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, which requires the recognition of sales when there is evidence of a sales agreement, the delivery of goods has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable and the collectability of revenue is reasonably assured. We generally record sales upon shipment of product to customers and transfer of title under standard commercial terms. All sales at our branded retail outlet in London are recognized at the point of sale.

Deferred revenue as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $9,113 and $13,214, respectively. Deferred revenue represents prepayments and deposits required from certain customers before delivery of Horiyoshi the Third, The Thiiird, and Heroes & Demons products.

 
 

 

Return policy

Customers have the right to return merchandise and the return policy is set by senior management and consistent among all of our client relationships. Based on historical experience, actual returns by our clients have been rare and immaterial across our client base. Management monitors returns by clients carefully as we increase the number of retail outlets within our distribution network. Reserves are established to reflect actual and anticipated losses resulting from the returns of defected and unsold merchandise based on historical information. Currently we estimate returns to be approximately 1.8% of our trailing twelve month sales and reserves have been made accordingly each reporting period. The return reserve based on this percentage of sales has been consistent with actual returns in our brief operating history. The balances of the return reserve at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $10,317.

Cost of sales

Cost of goods sold consists of cost of purchases for resale to stores located in in Canada, Dubai, France, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Hong Kong the United Kingdom, and the United States.  It also consists of cost of purchases for resale of our branded online Horiyoshi the Third, The Thiiird, and Heroes and Demons stores as well as our branded retail outlet in London. In addition, write offs of obsolete inventory, changes in the inventory reserve, and shrinkage are included in cost of goods sold. Generally, our customers are required to pay all shipping costs for the delivery of their orders. 

 

Accounts receivable and allowance for doubtful accounts

Accounts receivable are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days from the invoice date. Customer accounts with balances over 90 days old are considered delinquent. The carrying amount of accounts receivable are reduced by an allowance for doubtful accounts that reflects our Company's best estimate of the amounts that will not be collected. Our Company reviews outstanding accounts and based on an assessment of current creditworthiness, estimates the portion, if any, of the balance that will not be collected. Our Company provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a charge to earnings and a credit to a valuation allowance based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Balances that are still outstanding after reasonable collection efforts are written off through a charge to the valuation allowance and a credit to accounts receivable. Our Company has assessed accounts receivable and determined that a reserve is necessary. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 the allowance for doubtful accounts was $17,060 and $21,495, respectively.

 

Earnings (Loss) per Share

The Company presents earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) in accordance with ASC 260,“Earnings per Share. ASC 260 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS includes the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. Due to the net loss during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, the assumed exercise of stock warrants was anti-dilutive. Therefore, basic and diluted losses per share are the same for all periods presented. At June 30, 2014 and 2013 there were 3,333 stock warrants that could dilute future earnings.

Foreign currency transactions

Foreign currency exposures arise from transactions, including firm commitments and anticipated contracts, denominated in a currency other than an entity's functional currency and from foreign-denominated revenues translated into U.S. dollars. Changes in currency exchange rates may affect the relative prices at which we and our foreign competitors sell products in the same market and collect receivables from such sales. Products are generally sold in U.S. dollars (USD) or British pound sterlings (GBP).

Changes to currency rates may affect the prices at which we conduct business with our vendors and our employees. Payments subject to foreign currency translation are executed at our deposit bank’s currency spot rate at the time of payment, generally at each month’s end.

 
 

 

The functional currency of the Company’s subsidiaries outside the U.S. is the respective local currency. The translation from the applicable foreign currencies to U.S. dollars is performed for balance sheet accounts using exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date and for revenue and expense accounts using a weighted average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are recorded as a component of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (“AOCI”).

During the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we incurred foreign currency transaction gains of $25,935 and $4,400, which have been included as part of net income, and foreign currency translation losses of $25,112 and $118, which have been included as part of AOCI. During the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, we incurred a foreign currency transaction gain of $35,757 and a foreign currency transaction loss of $45,738, which have been included as part of net income, and a foreign currency translation loss of $33,713 and a foreign currency translation gain of $44,648, which have been included as part of AOCI.

Income Taxes

The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial statement 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 Company estimates the degree to which tax assets and credit carry-forwards will result in a benefit based on expected profitability by tax jurisdiction. A valuation allowance for such tax assets and loss carry-forwards is provided when it is determined that such assets will more likely than not go unrealized. If it becomes more likely than not that a tax asset will be realized, the related valuation allowance on such assets would be reversed.

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with the ASC 740-10-25, which requires that deferred tax assets and liabilities be recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. In addition, it requires recognition of future tax benefits, such as carry forwards, to the extent that realization of such benefits is more likely than not and that a valuation allowance be provided when it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.

Inventory

Inventories, consisting of finished goods, work in process, and raw materials are valued at the lower of cost, as determined by the average cost, or market. Cost includes all expenditures incurred in bringing the goods to the point of sale and putting them in a saleable condition. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, inventory consists of $299,798 and $332,102 of finished goods, and $54,493 and $55,524 of raw materials, respectively.

The Company maintains a perpetual inventory and report by product. This is updated daily based upon shipping and sales reports. Due to the high style nature of the Company’s merchandise, reserves are recorded to reduce the carrying value of slow moving, out of season, and broken style merchandise to market value and as additional cost of sales. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there have been reserves of $118,248 and $122,798 made for inventory on hand.

Prepaid Expenses and Other Current Assets

Prepaid expenses and other current assets at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were $37,789 and $31,784, respectively. Prepaid expenses and other current assets represent deposits on operating leases and amounts paid for goods and services yet to be received.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are record at cost. Depreciation is computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which is five years for the office equipment, websites, and computers, three years, for software, and seven years for leasehold improvements for financial reporting purposes.

Accounts payable and accrued expenses

Accounts payable are those funds owed to our business partners for goods and services rendered which are related to our business operations. Our accounts payable at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were $324,487 and $354,609, respectively.

 
 

 

The Company accrues expenses related to business travel, professional services rendered but not yet paid for and various office expenses and reimbursements. As a result of the limited number of employees and short term nature of their employment it was not necessary for the Company to separately accrue for vacation or payroll time for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Our accrued expenses were $941,841 at June 30, 2014 and $671,229 at December 31, 2013.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amount reported in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets for cash, accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximates fair value because of the short-term maturity of those instruments. It was not practicable to estimate the fair value of notes payable to related parties.

Segment reporting

The Company considers its operations to constitute a single segment which is the design and distribution of clothes and accessories. The Company does not operate under a multiple segment reporting model.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASU 2014-09), which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing U.S. GAAP.

The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). We are currently evaluating the impact of our pending adoption of ASU 2014-09 on our consolidated financial statements and have not yet determined the method by which we will adopt the standard in 2017.

Any amounts outstanding are due on the demand of the lender and are non-interest bearing. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, our Company was obligated to AMS Holdings Limited for $150,000. This amount is included on the balance sheet under “Demand loans”.

Note 5. Related Party Transactions

On September 17, 2008, Horiyoshi III Worldwide Ltd. (as we then were) entered into a License Agreement with Stone Corporation Inc. d/b/a Stone Japan, a Japanese corporation that is 80% owned by Lone Star Capital Limited, (a Hong Kong company and our principal shareholder) and 20% owned by Yoshihito Nakano, Master Horiyoshi III. Pursuant to the license agreement we hold an exclusive, worldwide, 35 year license, effective September 17, 2008, to use all copyright and trademark rights associated with our products and brand, and to exclusively manufacture and distribute apparel, beauty products, and other products related to our business. No third party is permitted to use the IP licensed to us for the production of non-apparel merchandise. We paid consideration of $10 in respect of the licensed rights. In the event that Stone Japan intends to sell the intellectual property rights licensed to us, we shall have a first right of purchase for those rights so long as the license agreement is in effect to purchase those rights at any time in the seven (7) years preceding the termination of the license agreement. The purchase price shall be equal to two (2) times the average annual gross sales turnover of our products based on the licensed rights during the three years preceding the date of exercise of the right of purchase.

On June 1, 2011, as a result of rising costs in Japan and weakness of the United States Dollar against the Japanese Yen, our Company ceased its manufacturing relationship with Stone Corporation and entered into an amended agreement for licensing rights. Pursuant to the amended license agreement we hold the exclusive, worldwide rights to use, and sublicense to use, rights related to the mark “HORIYOSHI”, and all derivatives thereof, in connection with the manufacture, promotion, sale and distribution of all products, goods, and services, in all categories, without limitation. The amended license agreement expired on May 31, 2012 and contains five extension options in five year increments. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, as consideration for the IP rights, we recognized $180,000 of expenses related to license fees, all of which have been included in accrued expenses at June 30, 2014.

The Company will continue to pay Stone Corporation a flat monthly license fee of $30,000 until the termination of the licensing agreement.

In March 2013, the management and directors of the Company authorized the conversion of $50,000 of debt held by Lonestar Capital Limited, into restricted shares of HHWW common stock to be valued at $0.015 per share. This transaction increased the number of shares issued and outstanding to 810,180.

In July 2014, the management and directors of the Company authorized the conversion of $450,000 of debt held by Lonestar Capital Limited, into 22,500,000 restricted shares of HHWW common stock.

Note 6. Stock-Based Compensation and Warrants

Stock Awards

On January 1, 2011, we entered into a consulting agreement with Raymond A. Catroppa, CFA. Pursuant to the terms of the consulting agreement, we provided Mr. Catroppa with 3,333 warrants to purchase equity shares at $0.50 per share. The vesting period was from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. The amount fully vested at December 31, 2011.

 
 

 

The fair value of each warrant granted is estimated on the date of the grant using the Black-Scholes Model. The Black-Scholes Model has assumptions for risk free interest rates, dividends, stock volatility and expected life of an option grant. The risk free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury Bill rate with a maturity based on the expected life of the warrant and on the closest day to an individual stock option grant. Dividend rates are based on the Company’s dividend history. The expected life of a warrant grant is based on management’s estimate. The fair value of each warrant grant is recognized as a compensation expense over the vesting period of the warrant on a straight line basis. All warrants were vested and expensed as of December 31, 2011. The warrants have no expiration date. There were no additional awards granted during the six months ended June 30, 2014.

 

Note 7. Common Stock Subscribed

On May 15, 2014, the Company entered into subscription agreements with 14 subscribers for the issuance of 27,892,098 common shares at a deemed price of $0.001 per share. The 27,892,098 shares were issued in partial compensation for consulting services rendered, or to be rendered, to the Company by the subscribers. Of these, 200,000 shares were issued to our Director, Raymond Catroppa, 5,820,000 shares were issued to our Director and Chief Financial Officer, Darren Takemoto, and 6,200,000 shares were issued to our Director, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Kerry Chung.

Note 8. Commitments and Contingencies

Operating Leases

In September 2011, the Company entered into an agreement to lease a building for its first retail store at 19 Connaught Street, London W2. The lease has a term of 7 years and expires at the end of August 2018. The Company accounts for this lease as an operating lease.

The Company also leases certain office equipment under operating lease agreements.

The following is a schedule by years of future minimum rental payments required under operating leases that have initial or remaining non-cancelable lease terms in excess of one year as of June 30, 2014:

 2014 – remainder   $23,903 
 2015    45,694 
 2016    44,990 
 2017    43,582 
 2018    32,686 
 Total   $190,855 

Operating lease rent expense (including real estate taxes and common area maintenance costs) was approximately $31,455 and $57,027 for the six months June 30, 2014 and 2013. Rent expense is included in operating expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Note 9. Seasonality

To date, with the majority of the Company’s revenues coming from the luxury segment there is seasonality in the revenue steam. The company attends important design shows that are focused on the Women’s and Men’s spring season and Women’s and Men’s fall season which occur in March and September. This translates into the Company booking large portions of revenues when spring and fall seasonal orders are delivered.

Note 10. Subsequent Events

On July 10, 2014, the Company entered into a debt settlement and subscription agreement pursuant to which Lonestar Capital Limited agreed to accept, in repayment of $450,000 of debt, 22,500,000 restricted common shares in our capital stock at a deemed price of $0.02 per share.

On July 24, 2014, the Company issued 27,892,098 common shares to 14 subscribers under the terms of the subscription agreements entered into on May 15, 2014. The 27,892,098 shares were issued in partial compensation for consulting services rendered, or to be rendered, to the Company by the subscribers.

These issuances increased the Company’s number of shares issued and outstanding to 51,202,278.

Overview

Horiyoshi Worldwide, Inc. (HHWW) is a clothing and accessories design and distribution company whose products are inspired by the artwork of Japanese master tattoo artist Yoshihito Nakano - better known as Horiyoshi III. The Horiyoshi name has been internationally recognized for decades and Horiyoshi III is considered by his peers and followers as a legend in his field. The business was established September 1, 2008 to capitalize on the multi-generational legacy of the Tattoo Masters by offering consumers a unique collection of knitwear, t-shirts and accessory items. The Company began selling its products from the “Horiyoshi” collection in 2009. The “Horiyoshi” collection retails at a suggested price point of approximately $140-160 for T-shirts, $480-945 for knits, $600-800 for hoodies, and $280-420 for scarves. In 2011, the Company launched the Heroes & Demons collection of men’s t-shirts which retails at a suggested price point of approximately $60-$75. In July 2012, the Company launched “The Thiiird” collection of men’s t-shirts, denims, sweats and hoodies. The Thiiird retails at a suggested price point of approximately $200 to $400 for denim, $115 to $140 for t-shirts, $270 to $365 for hoodies and sweats, $700 to $1000 for jackets. The rights to the design catalogue are exclusively licensed to Horiyoshi the Third, Inc. (HTT) a wholly owned subsidiary of HHWW (“the Company”). Horiyoshi Worldwide [U.K.] Limited, another subsidiary wholly owned by HHWW, was created in 2011 and operates the Company’s first branded retail outlet in London.

The Company’s design teams are passionate about the art work of Horiyoshi III and take great care integrating the imagery into the Company’s garments. HHWW’s management feels that it is positioning the Company to take advantage of the increasing inflection of design, art and culture in today’s fashion world. By introducing quality clothes that infuse the internationally recognized art work of Horiyoshi III the company believes it is at the vanguard of a growing interest in unique aspects of the art and cultural imagery of the Far East. The Company’s strategy includes the development of a line extension marketed at a lower price point and focused on larger markets. In conjunction a number of new distribution channels are under development. Our goal is to build a brand that is recognized throughout the world for creating quality products with universal appeal.

Revenue

We earned revenues of $117,296 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared to revenues of $208,001 for the three months June 30, 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 we earned revenues of $224,091 compared to $524,361 for the corresponding period in 2013. Revenues decreased in the three and six months periods due to a significant decrease in spring/summer 2014 wholesale sales as well as decreased sales of prior season inventory to wholesale discounters.

 

Cost of Goods Sold

 

Cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $61,867 compared to $158,791 for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Cost of goods sold represented 53% of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to 76% for the three months ended June 30, 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, cost of goods sold were $118,466, or 53% of sales, compared to $308,254, or 59% of sales, for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, can be attributed to increased sales at the retail level through our branded websites and London store.

 

Expenses

Our total expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 are outlined in the table below:

   Three Months Ended

This decrease can be attributed to a management’s implementation of an aggressive cost cutting initiative which led to decreases in travel, meals and entertainment expense, consulting fees, and office expenses.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net cash used in operating activities was $279,634 as a result of changes in our working capital and a six month net loss of $535,135.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net cash provided by financing activities was $271,710 as a result of net proceeds of loans from Lonestar Capital, a related party, offset by repayments of loans to shareholders.

We will require additional funds to fund our budgeted expenses in the future. These funds may be raised through equity financing, debt financing, or other sources, which may result in further dilution in the equity ownership of our shares. There is no assurance that we will be able to maintain operations at a level sufficient for an investor to obtain a return on their investment in our common stock. Further, we may continue to be unprofitable. We may need to raise additional funds in the future in order to proceed with our budgeted expenses. Additionally, there is no assurance that any party will advance additional funds to us in order to enable us to sustain our plan of operations or to repay our liabilities.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Growth of our operations will be based on our ability to internally finance from cash flow, raise equity and/or debt to increase sales and production. Our primary sources of liquidity are: (i) cash from sales of our products; and (ii) financing activities. Our cash balance as of June 30, 2014 is $3,461.

Prior to the $5,000,000 in equity financing in December 2010, our Company funded some of its operations through debt financing with related party transactions.

As of June 30, 2014, our Company was obligated to Steve Suk, a Director of Horiyoshi the Third Limited, for a non-interest bearing demand loan with a balance of $93,138.

As of June 30, 2014, our Company was obligated to Lone Star Capital Limited, a related party, for a non-interest bearing demand loan with a balance of $1,946,110.

As of June 30, 2014, our Company was obligated to AMS Holdings Limited, for a non-interest bearing demand loan with a balance of $150,000.

Plan of Operation and Cash Requirements

Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Horiyoshi the Third Limited, began selling its products in 2009. Our wholly owned subsidiary Horiyoshi Worldwide [U.K.] limited, began operating our first branded retail outlet in London in 2011. Our plan of action over the next twelve months is to continue to market and sell the Horiyoshi, the Thiiird, and Heroes & Demons collections and raise additional capital financing as necessary, to grow operations.

 
 

The success of our operations will be based on our ability to grow by financing the operation through internal cash flow or to raise funds through equity and/or debt financing to invest in marketing, sales and distribution of our product line. The challenging markets for credit and for the sale of luxury apparel resulting from the recent financial crisis and current period of economic stagnation have negatively affected the markets for many luxury goods. The availability of equity and/or debt financings remains uncertain.

 

Going Concern

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, our Company incurred a loss of $535,135 and an accumulated deficit of $8,673,561. Our Company intends to fund operations through operational cash flow and equity/debt financing arrangements. These sources may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements for the future. In response to these problems, management intends to raise additional funds through public or private placement offerings. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to stockholders.

Seasonality

To date, with the majority of the Company’s revenues coming from the luxury segment there is seasonality in the revenue steam. The company attends important design shows that are focused on the Women’s and Men’s spring season and Women’s and Men’s fall season which occur in March and September. This translates into the Company booking large portions of revenues when spring and fall seasonal orders are delivered.

Critical Accounting Policies

Use of estimates

In preparing financial statements in conformity with US GAAP, our management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities. These estimates and assumptions also affect the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reported periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Our consolidated financial statements include some amounts that are based on our management's best estimates and judgments. The most significant estimates relate to the valuation allowance for accounts receivable, returns, inventory, deferred taxes and various contingent liabilities. It is reasonably possible that the above-mentioned estimates and others may be adjusted as more current information becomes available, and any adjustment could be significant in future reporting periods.

Revenue recognition

Our revenue recognition policy is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, which requires the recognition of sales when there is evidence of a sales agreement, the delivery of goods has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable and the collectability of revenue is reasonably assured. We record sales upon shipment of product to customers and transfer of title under standard commercial terms for wholesale and web orders, and at the point of sale for direct to consumer sales at our branded retail store.Deferred revenue as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $9,113 and $13,214, respectively. Deferred revenue represents prepayments and deposits required from certain customers before delivery of Horiyoshi the Third and The Thiiird products.

Return policy

Customers have the right to return merchandise and the return policy is set by senior management and consistent among all of our client relationships. Based on historical experience, actual returns by our clients have been rare and immaterial across our client base. Management monitors returns by clients carefully as we increase the number of retail outlets within our distribution network. Reserves are established to reflect actual and anticipated losses resulting from the returns of defected and unsold merchandise based on historical information. Currently we estimate returns to be approximately 1.8% of our trailing twelve month sales and reserves have been made accordingly each reporting period. The return reserve based on this percentage of sales has been consistent with actual returns in our brief operating history. The balances of the return reserve at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $10,317.

 
 

 

Accounts receivable and allowance for doubtful accounts

 

Accounts receivable are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days from the invoice date. Customer accounts with balances over 90 days old are considered delinquent. The carrying amount of accounts receivable are reduced by an allowance for doubtful accounts that reflects our Company's best estimate of the amounts that will not be collected. Our Company reviews outstanding accounts and based on an assessment of current creditworthiness, estimates the portion, if any, of the balance that will not be collected. Our Company provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a charge to earnings and a credit to a valuation allowance based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Balances that are still outstanding after reasonable collection efforts are written off through a charge to the valuation allowance and a credit to accounts receivable. Our Company has assessed accounts receivable and determined that a reserve is necessary. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 the allowance for doubtful accounts was $17,060 and $21,495, respectively.

Cost of goods sold

Cost of goods sold consists of cost of purchases for resale to stores located in in Canada, Dubai, France, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Hong Kong the United Kingdom, and the United States.  It also consists of cost of purchases for resale of our branded online Horiyoshi the Third, The Thiiird, and Heroes and Demons stores as well as our branded retail outlet in London. In addition, write offs of obsolete inventory, changes in the inventory reserve, and shrinkage are included in cost of goods sold. Generally, our customers are required to pay all shipping costs for the delivery of their orders. 

Inventory

Inventories, consisting of finished goods and raw materials are valued at the lower of cost, as determined by the average cost, or market. Cost includes all expenditures incurred in bringing the goods to the point of sale and putting them in saleable condition. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, inventory consists of $299,798 and $332,102 of finished goods, and $54,493 and $55,524 of raw materials, respectively.

The Company maintains a perpetual inventory and report by product. This is updated daily based upon shipping and sales reports. Due to the high style nature of the Company’s merchandise, reserves are recorded to reduce the carrying value of slow moving, out of season, and broken style merchandise to market value and as additional cost of sales. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there have been reserves of $118,248 and $122,798 made for inventory on hand.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with the FASB Codification Topic 740-10-25 (“ASC 740-10-25”), which requires that deferred tax assets and liabilities be recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. In addition, it requires recognition of future tax benefits, such as carry forwards, to the extent that realization of such benefits is more likely than not and that a valuation allowance be provided when it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASU 2014-09), which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing U.S. GAAP.

 
 

 

The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). We are currently evaluating the impact of our pending adoption of ASU 2014-09 on our consolidated financial statements and have not yet determined the method by which we will adopt the standard in 2017.
