PART I

 

Item 1.Business

 

Our Corporate History and Background

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008. From inception through December 31, 2014, our primary business purpose was to stockpile indium, a specialty metal that is used as a raw material in a wide variety of consumer electronics manufacturing applications. As of December 31, 2014, we sold all of the indium from our stockpile. As a result, at such time we were no longer in the business of purchasing and selling indium. In December 2015, our Board of Directors approved a cash distribution to our stockholders in the amount of $1.75 per share (or approximately $3.05 million). The distribution was classified as a return of capital for tax purposes. The aggregate cash distribution was recorded against additional paid in capital for accounting purposes. During the third quarter of 2015, our Board of Directors approved a program to repurchase up to $650,000 worth of our shares of common stock. In connection therewith, we repurchased 139,070 shares of our common stock in September 2015 for approximately $200,000, or $1.40 per share. After completion of the share repurchase program and immediately prior to the Acquisition, we had 1,744,569 shares issued and outstanding.

 

On September 19, 2017, we acquired one hundred percent of the issued and outstanding membership interests (“MG Membership Interests”) of MG Cleaners LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“MG”) pursuant to which MG became our wholly-owned subsidiary (the “Acquisition”). In connection with the Acquisition, we issued 4,578,276 shares and agreed to pay $300,000 in cash to the MG Members, payable with $250,000 at closing and the remaining $50,000 paid to the MG Members upon the completion of the Company’s sale of a minimum of $500,000 of its securities in a private offering to investors.

 

Effective April 2, 2018, we changed our corporate name to SMG Industries Inc.

 

The Business of MG Cleaners LLC

 

General

 

MG Cleaners was organized as a limited liability company in Texas in 2005. In 2010, Stephen Christian, acquired MG Cleaners from its prior owner and has served as its Managing Member and President since. Mr. Christian was a former Rig Supervisor for Nabors Drilling (“Nabors”) from 2004 until 2010. Nabors Industries (NYSE: NBR), the parent company of Nabors Drilling, owns and operates the nation's largest land-based drilling rig fleet and is one of our larger customers.

 

We are an emerging growth oilfield service company focused on the drilling rig operator market segment in the domestic United States pursuant to which we offer the following products and services: (i) product sales for the oilfield industry focused on drilling rig wash, oilfield cleaning, industrial cleaning, fleet and equipment cleaning; (ii) equipment sales for the oilfield industry including, industrial pressure washers; (iii) parts sales for our installed base on equipment, including water guns, hoses and fittings, and (iv) service crews for the oilfield industry related to rig wash and repairing drilling rigs on location.

  

Industry Overview

 

In February 2018, the Domestic United States Rig Count, as measured by Baker Hughes, stood at 978, up 142% from the May 2016 lows of 404. Rig Counts are a measurement of oilfield activity particularly relevant to us, as we sell products to drilling rig operator customers. As a result of favorable operating economics for oil and gas companies, there is a high concentration of rigs and oilfield activity in Texas relative to other areas in the domestic United States. In February 2018, Texas and adjacent New Mexico (Permian and Delaware basins) had approximately 569 rigs operating, representing about 58% of the entire domestic United States rigs concentrated in these West Texas/New Mexico basins.

 

MG Cleaner’s Products and Services

 

 2 

 

 

Proprietary Products

 

Our branded products have proprietary formulations that perform in specific applications. These products include soaps, surfactants and degreasers which are environmentally friendly and sold primarily to drilling rig operators, exploration and production companies, and distribution and supply companies serving this market segment.

 

Our branded products have proprietary formulations that have been sold direct via our sales force and through distribution supply companies for over ten years. Miracle Blue™, a powerful degreaser, Luma Brite™, an aluminum brightener and descaler, and Wicked Green™, an enviro-friendly emulsifier used in oil remediation jobs that is bio-degradable, are some of the Company’s top selling products. In total, we currently offer 14 branded and proprietary products used by industry leading drilling contractors in the domestic United States including Nabors, UTI-Patterson, Helmrich & Payne and Cactus Drilling. MG’s products are sold throughout Texas using direct sales employees in the East Texas market (based in Carthage, Texas) and in the West Texas market (based in Odessa, Texas) with distributors/suppliers handling other areas.

 

Service Crews

 

MG’s service crews consist of Company employees who perform drilling rig wash and mechanical repair services for drilling rig operator customers. MG’s rig wash crews typically consist of four employees using company equipment that clean a drilling rig prior to its transport to another location. Mechanic crews generate service revenues by performing onsite repairs of centrifugal pumps, mud agitators and related equipment. MG’s mechanic service crews also operate at MG’s East and West Texas facilities for non-time critical jobs.

 

In other examples, customers prefer to outsource cleaning and repair services where our service crews become strategic to MG’s business solving customer problems and using our products during service.

 

Equipment and Parts Sales

 

Other customers prefer to purchase equipment and perform their own maintenance on their equipment, using a variety of our cleaning products. Through long-standing relationships with manufacturers, we sell equipment and related parts to our customers which strategically promote our future product sales. We currently offer a full line of industrial and oilfield pressure washers along with compressors, heaters, water pumps and combination units. We also sell spare parts to customers who have purchased equipment, which include pressure washer water guns, hoses and fittings.

 

Rentals

 

Some drilling rig operators, oil company operators and other oilfield companies rent our rig wash equipment trailer units that are comprised of pressure washers, heating equipment, water containment units and related components. These rental revenues typically come in five to seven day rental cycles, and MG charges a day rate for this equipment.

 

MG’s customers include drilling rig operators such as Nabors, UTI-Patterson, Cactus Drilling; oil companies such as Chesapeake and Chevron; and other oilfield service companies.

 

Our Strategy

 

Continued Development of Texas business. Currently, more than half of the rigs in the domestic United States are located in Texas and adjacent New Mexico due to favorable economics in Texas’s resource basins, such as the Permian Basin and Delaware Basin, relative to other parts of the United States. We have initiated a direct sales presence in West Texas, based out of Odessa, Texas, to complement our existing distribution channels for that market area which will allow us to further penetrate that market. In West Texas, the Company has enjoyed good market penetration via distribution and supply companies. We believe that high activity levels in West Texas’s Permian and Delaware basins should allow for further growth with new direct sales. In July 2017, we hired a strategic level employee, from Odessa, Texas, experienced with many of our customers, to support and grow our presence in that market. Currently, the Company has a sales force in East Texas servicing the Haynesville Shale, Woodbine, Cotton Valley and other oil & gas resource plays in the area.

 

Sell New Products and Additional Services to Existing Customers. We have over 50 customers, many of which are leading companies in their field. We believe we can further monetize our relationships with our customers by bringing other products and services to them that we develop or acquire when there is a demand. As an example, on February 15, 2018, we acquired a product, formulation, trademark and brand for Rig Hands™ that aligns with our current distribution system.

 

Acquire Complementary Oilfield Service Companies. Our management team has prior experience acquiring owner/operated companies in oilfield. The Company believes this acquisition strategy can be an attractive way to grow more quickly than organic growth alone allows. In our experience, operating companies that want to be acquired often have complementary and many times non-overlapping customers that could have a positive strategic impact to our future.

Maintaining High Quality Service. Our success and history has been built on a reputation of high-quality service. We try to ingrain this philosophy in our Company culture and employee attitudes. The oilfield service business is demanding, and keeping a 24/7 service policy is a priority that we intend to continue to focus on and maintain.

 

Leverage Access to Public Company Markets. We believe that the public capital markets can facilitate funding access for our long-term growth initiatives, including making strategic acquisitions, however, there can be no assurance that we will identify acquisition targets or if we do identify acquisition targets that we will be able to acquire them on terms acceptable to us. Additionally, there can be no assurance that we will be able to access the public capital markets to facilitate funding for our long-term growth initiatives, or if funding is available that it will be on terms acceptable to us.

 

Sales. The Company’s sales plan includes continuing to support its East Texas direct sales presence and establishing a direct sales force in West Texas to complement the distribution and supply channels already present in that area. This will be led by a recently hired strategic employee who has a significant number of customer and sales contacts. We also have meaningful sales through distributors and supply firms that benefit from their customers’ requests for our products. Any demand for the Company’s products outside the state of Texas are typically fulfilled through a distribution supply channel.

 

Manufacturing. The Company manufacturers its products in its facility in Carthage, Texas. Raw materials are procured by the Company and the proprietary formulas for our brands are utilized throughout the process. Mixing tanks and other process equipment are used to make the products. The final product is then stored in large gravity-fed containers onsite or in transportation quantities such as totes or gallons. Third party shipping and distribution companies are currently utilized for certain shipments of product to West Texas. We may install manufacturing capabilities in our Odessa, Texas facility as activity increases in that market area.

 

Marketing Plan. The Company’s marketing plan focuses around supporting its product brands such as Miracle Blue™, Luma Brite™, and Wicked Green™, as well as supporting its direct sales force. MG participates in industry trade shows, sponsorships and community events that allow its products to be featured. Social media, including LinkedIn, is utilized to facilitate awareness and discussion groups focused around these product cleaning applications. The Company’s web site has been updated recently to create higher relevance for our target market customers and promote testimonials of our products and equipment. For our service crews, the marketing plan is to increase crew counts in West Texas market area so as to increase availability and service hours.

 

Market Segment Description. The Company views the oilfield services market in three principal segments: Drilling, Completions and Production. MG’s position in the market is to focus on the Drilling segment. In our opinion, the Drilling market is very elastic resulting in its segment being the first to recover on industry up-cycles.

 

Market Activity. In any given unconventional well typically drilled in Texas, the completion and fracturing costs can be two to three times the cost of drilling. Therefore, a trend has developed over recent years referred to as "fraclog”, illustrating the number of Drilled Uncompleted Wells (DUCs). According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), DUC’s total more than 7,600 in the domestic US in January 2018. As industry economics improve, the Company believes that the Completions market segment could become more attractive. Today, however, MG believes the Drilling market segment is where we should focus our resources and attention. The Production market segment has been relatively steady, compared to Drilling and Completion, as wells already online which are maintaining positive economics can support operations and continued production.

 

The Company currently believes the price of oil and gas may stay at present levels for several years therefore, we believe our focus and positioning on the drilling market segment is critical to the Company’s future profitability.

 

Management. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Flemming, is located in Houston, Texas. Mr. Flemming was the CEO of HII Technologies (“HII”) when it was a small public company with approximately $300,000 in cash, no debt and plans to enter the oilfield services business through an initial platform acquisition. HII had no revenues prior to its first acquisition in September 2012, when it acquired AES Water Solutions for approximately $2.3 million in cash, a seller note and stock. Following this initial acquisition, HII completed two more acquisitions as well as two additional subsidiary startups in the power and safety segments of the oilfield services business. By December 2014, HII’s consolidated revenues had grown to $4.2 million for that month (or an annual run rate of revenues of $50 million). Falling rig counts, industry activity and oil & gas prices created an industry down-turn by 2015. In July 2015, HII’s senior lender declared HII in default of its senior credit facility, and as a result the lender did not continue to release funds to HII pursuant to the terms of the credit facility. As a result, HII was unable to continue to fund its operations or satisfy its reporting obligations with the SEC subsequent to its March 31, 2015 Form 10-Q filing. Led by its Chief Restructuring Officer, Loretta Cross, HII filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition with the US Bankruptcy court in Houston, Texas in September 2015. On April 15, 2016, Mr. Flemming resigned as an officer and director of HII and HII emerged from bankruptcy protection. On July 13, 2016, HII’s registration was revoked by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The revocation of HII’s registration was the result of proceedings instituted by the SEC, which HII accepted and consented to without admitting or denying the findings of the SEC. The SEC’s findings included that HII filed a Chapter 11 petition with the Bankruptcy court and that HII failed to comply with Exchange Act Section 13(a) and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13.

Mr. Flemming has been a CEO and CFO for more than twenty years in high growth capital intensive businesses with more than twelve years’ experience in a public company environment. He has significant relationships in the oilfield market place that help provide access to products and company acquisition targets.

 

Stephen Christian has been the President of MG Cleaners, LLC since October 2010, when he acquired MG Cleaners’ membership interests and will continue to have operational responsibility for MG, our wholly-owned subsidiary. Prior to MG, Stephen was employed by the largest drilling rig operator in the United States, known as Nabors Drilling, a subsidiary of Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR), as a Rig Manager from 2004 to 2010. Over the six years he was employed by Nabors, Mr. Christian developed a strong reputation with Nabors’ employees and industry partners. He purchased MG Cleaners in 2010 and has operated the business as its President since its acquisition. The Company believes Mr. Christian’s industry relationships and reputation will continue to assist its growth.

 

Geographic Diversification

 

All of our operations are based in Texas. Most of our products and all of our service work is conducted in Texas. Our products are sold outside of Texas through several long-standing relationships with distributors.

 

Competition

 

The markets in which we operate are highly competitive. We provide services and sell our products in the State of Texas. Our competitors include many large and small oilfield service companies. In addition, the business segments in which we compete are highly fragmented. We believe that the principal competitive factors in the markets we serve are: reputation for service and technical expertise, equipment and personnel capacity, work force competency, efficiency, safety record and price. Our branded products compete against other cleaning products, surfactants and degreasers, some of which are branded retail and some industrial. Because of our dealer status with certain equipment, we do not frequently compete for equipment sales on selected items. With our service crews, we compete with the human resources that drilling rig operators and oil companies employ. These firms may have their own service personnel, in which case we may not get awarded that service job. While we seek to be competitive in our pricing, we believe many of our customers elect to work with us based on safety, performance and quality of our crews, equipment and services. We seek to differentiate ourselves from our competitors by delivering the highest quality services, experienced personnel and equipment possible, coupled with superior execution and operating efficiency in a safe working environment. Many of our competitors have greater financial and personnel resources than we do.

 

Cyclical Nature of Industry

 

We operate in a highly cyclical industry. The key factor driving demand for our services is the level of drilling activity by E&P companies, which in turn depends largely on current and anticipated future crude oil and natural gas prices and production depletion rates. Global supply and demand for oil and the domestic supply and demand for natural gas are critical in assessing industry outlook. Demand for oil and natural gas is cyclical and subject to large, rapid fluctuations. Producers tend to increase capital expenditures in response to increases in oil and natural gas prices, which generally results in greater revenues and profits for oilfield service companies such as ours. Increased capital expenditures also ultimately lead to greater production, which historically has resulted in increased supplies and reduced prices, which in turn tend to reduce activity levels for oilfield services. For these reasons, the results of our operations may fluctuate from quarter to quarter and year to year. These fluctuations may distort comparisons of results across periods.

 

Dependence on One or a Few Major Customers

 

The Company serves several major drilling companies and independent oil & gas companies that are active in our core areas of operations.

 

As of December 31, 2017, two customers comprised more than 10% of our accounts receivable balance at approximately 44% and 20%, respectively. During the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2017, two customers represented more than 10% of our revenues at 34% and 18%, respectively, and no other customer represented more than 10% of our revenues during this period.  

 

As of December 31, 2016, four customers comprised more than 10% of our accounts receivable balance at approximately 30%, 19%, 11% and 11%, respectively. Revenues from these four customers represented 23%, 12%, 7% and 6%, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Seasonality

 

Weather conditions affect the demand for, and prices of, oil and natural gas and, as a result, demand for our services. Demand for oil and natural gas is typically higher in the fourth and first quarters resulting in higher prices. Due to these seasonal fluctuations, results of operations for individual quarterly periods may not be indicative of the results that may be realized on an annual basis.

 

Raw Materials

 

The Company purchases a wide variety of raw materials, parts and components that are made by other manufacturers and suppliers for our use. The Company is not dependent on any single source of supply for those parts, supplies or materials and we believe that such parts, supplies and materials are readily available from multiple sources. We do not foresee significant price fluctuations in our raw material costs.

 

Intellectual Property

 

We do not have any patents on our current products and do not intend to file any patents on such products. We protect our trademarks and may from time to time file for registration of those trademarks.

 

We currently protect our trade secrets and in-house intellectual property through contractual arrangements, including confidentiality, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements with employees, and will continue to use such contractual arrangements in the future to help protect our proprietary intellectual property.

 

Government Regulation

 

We are not currently subject to any direct regulation by any government agency, other than regulations generally applicable to businesses.

 

General business regulations include the packaging, labeling, distribution, advertising and sale of our chemical products, such as those we sell, are subject to regulation by one or more federal agencies, principally the Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, and to a lesser extent the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

 

Federal agencies, primarily the FTC, have a variety of procedures and enforcement remedies available to them, including the following:

 

·initiating investigations,
·issuing warning letters and cease and desist orders,
·requiring corrective labeling or advertising,
·requiring consumer redress, such as requiring that a company offer to repurchase products, previously sold to consumers,
·seeking injunctive relief or product seizures,
·imposing civil penalties, or,
·commencing civil action and/or criminal prosecution.

 

In addition, certain state agencies have similar authority. These federal and state agencies have in the past used these remedies in regulating participants in the industry, including the imposition by federal agencies of civil penalties. We cannot assure you that the regulatory environment in which we operate will not change or that such regulatory environment, or any specific action taken against us, will not result in a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

We cannot predict the nature of any future laws, regulations, interpretations, or applications, nor can we determine what effect such additional regulation, when and if it occurs, would have on our business in the future. Such additional regulation could require, however, any or all of the actions listed below, which could have a material adverse effect on our operations:

 

·the reformulation of certain products to meet new standards,
·the recall or discontinuance of certain products,
·additional record keeping,
·expanded documentation of the properties of certain products,
·revised, expanded or different labeling, or
·additional scientific substantiation.

Property

 

Our principal executive office is located at 710 N. Post Oak Road, Suite 400, Houston, Texas, where we lease approximately 700 square feet of office space on a month to month basis at a rate of $500 per month. We also have offices located in Carthage, Texas and Odessa, Texas. Our Carthage facility is comprised of a 2,500 square foot building and one acre of property that is leased for $2,500 per month. The Carthage lease is on a month to month basis and is used for our operations throughout East Texas. Effective July 15, 2017, we leased a facility in Midland, Texas for a three year period ending July 15, 2020 at a rate of $3,000 per month. The Midland, Texas facility is comprised of approximately 2,400 square feet of space and a shared yard with several acres of storage area used for our operations in West Texas including the Permian Basin. We terminated the Midland Texas lease effective January 2018 with mutual consent. On January 22, 2018, we entered into a two year lease for a 6,500 square foot building on approximately 1.5 acres in Odessa, Texas providing for three lease term extensions totaling six additional years. The initial rent is $6,500 per month and increases to $8,500 per month at the seventh month of the lease. After the first year anniversary, we may cancel the lease with 30 days’ notice to our landlord. Lease extensions are at our discretion and require rent increases. The Company is responsible for the repair, maintenance and insurance of the facility.

Risks Related to Our Business

 

We depend on several significant customers, and a loss of one or more significant customers could adversely affect our results of operations.

 

Our customers consist primarily of drilling rig operators and oil and natural gas companies. During fiscal year 2017, two of our customers accounted for approximately 52% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 34% and another accounting for 18%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2017. During fiscal year 2016, two of our customers accounted for approximately 35% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 23% and another accounting for 12%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2016. These customers do not have any ongoing commitment to purchase our services.  While additional customers have been sourced since December 31, 2016, significant customer concentration still exists.  The loss of or a sustained decrease in demand by these customers could result in a substantial loss of revenues and could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.  In addition, should these large customers default in their obligations to pay, our results of operations and cash flows could be adversely affected.

 

Our business depends on domestic (United States) spending by the crude oil and natural gas industry which has suffered significant negative price volatility since July 2014, and such volatility may continue; our business has been, and may in the future be, adversely affected by industry and financial market conditions that are beyond our control.

 

We depend on our customers’ ability and willingness to make operating and capital expenditures to explore, develop and produce crude oil and natural gas in the United States. Customers’ expectations for future crude oil and natural gas prices, as well as the availability of capital for operating and capital expenditures, may cause them to curtail spending, thereby reducing demand for our services and equipment. Major declines in oil and natural gas prices from July 2014 (when WTI prices were at approximately $100 per barrel) through 2015 resulted in substantial declines in capital spending and drilling programs across the industry in which we operate. As a result of the declines in oil and natural gas prices, most exploration and production companies shut down or substantially reduced drilling programs. Any significant decline in oil and natural gas prices or a significant decline in the North American rig count could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

Industry conditions and specifically the market price for crude oil and natural gas are influenced by numerous domestic and global factors over which the Company has no control, such as the supply of and demand for oil and natural gas, domestic and worldwide economic conditions, weather conditions, political instability in oil and natural gas producing countries, and merger and divestiture activity among oil and natural gas producers. The volatility of the oil and natural gas industry and the consequent impact on commodity prices as well as exploration and production activity could adversely impact the level of drilling and activity by some of our customers. Where declining prices lead to reduced exploration and development activities in the Company’s market areas, the reduction in exploration and development activities also may have a negative long-term impact on the Company’s business. Continued decline in oil and natural gas prices may result in increased pressure from our customers to make pricing concessions in the future and may impact our borrowing arrangements with our principal bank. 

 

There has also been significant political pressures for the United States economy to reduce its dependence on crude oil and natural gas due to the perceived impacts on climate change. These activities may make oil and gas investment and production less attractive.

 

Higher oil and gas prices do not necessarily result in increased drilling activity because our customers’ expectation of future prices also drives demand for drilling services. Oil and gas prices, as well as demand for the Company’s services, also depend upon other factors that are beyond the Company’s control, including the following:

 

·Supply and demand for crude oil and natural gas,
·political pressures against crude oil and natural gas exploration and production,
·cost of exploring for, producing, and delivering oil and natural gas,
·expectations regarding future energy prices,
·advancements in exploration and development technology,
·adoption or repeal of laws regulating oil and gas production in the U.S.,
·imposition or lifting of economic sanctions against foreign companies,
·weather conditions,
·rate of discovery of new oil and natural gas reserves,
·tax policy regarding the oil and gas industry,
·development and use of alternative energy sources, and,
·the ability of oil and gas companies to generate funds or otherwise obtain external capital for projects and production operations.

Ongoing volatility and uncertainty in the domestic and global economic and political environments have caused the oilfield services industry to experience volatility in terms of demand. While our management is generally optimistic for the continuing development of the onshore North American oil and gas industry, there are a number of political and economic pressures negatively impacting the economics of continuing production from some existing wells, future drilling operations, and the willingness of banks and investors to provide capital to participants in the oil and gas industry. These cuts in spending will continue to curtail drilling programs as well as discretionary spending on well services, and will continue to result in a reduction in the demand for the Company’s services, the rates and equipment utilization can be charged. In addition, certain of the Company’s customers could become unable to pay their suppliers, including the Company. Any of these conditions or events could adversely affect our operating results.

 

New cleaning technologies and products may render our products and services obsolete.

 

As technology continues to develop, our clients and our competitors may develop or discover new cleaning technologies that are superior to, or more cost effective than, the cleaning products and services we provide. In the event that any such technologies are developed, and we are unable to adapt to such new products or services, our business could be materially adversely effected.

 

We are dependent on third-parties to procure the chemicals required to manufacture our products.

 

We do not manufacture the chemicals that are required to manufacture our products and we rely on third-parties to supply such chemical products to us. In the event that there is a shortage in the supply of chemicals that are required to manufacture our products and we are unable to acquire any such chemicals from another source, our sales and results of operations will be materially adversely effected.

 

The loss of one or more key members of our management team, or our failure to attract, integrate and retain other highly qualified personnel in the future, could harm our business.

 

Our success is largely dependent on the skills, experience and efforts of our people.  We currently depend on the continued services and performance of the key members of our management team, including Matthew Flemming, our Chief Executive Officer, and Stephen Christian, President of MG Cleaners, LLC, our operating subsidiary. The loss of key personnel could disrupt our operations and have an adverse effect on our ability to grow our business if we are unable to replace them.

 

We operate in a highly competitive environment, which could adversely affect our sales and pricing.

 

We operate in a highly competitive environment. We expect competition to intensify in the future. We compete on the basis of our brands and branding, customer service, quality and price. There can be no assurance that we will be able to compete successfully with other companies. Thus, revenues could be reduced due to aggressive pricing pursued by competitors.  Many of our competitors are entities that are more established, larger and have greater financial and personnel resources than we do.  If we do not compete successfully, our business and results of operations will be materially adversely affected.

 

The line of credit with Crestmark Bank contains restrictive covenants which limit management’s discretion to operate MG’s business and is secured by all of MG’s assets.

 

In order to obtain the line of credit from Crestmark Bank, MG, our wholly-owned subsidiary, agreed to certain covenants that place certain restrictions on MG, among other things, MG’s ability to incur additional indebtedness, to create liens or other encumbrances, and to sell or otherwise dispose of MG’s assets.  Any failure to comply with the covenants included in the Crestmark Bank loan agreements could result in an event of default, which could trigger an acceleration of the related debt.  If MG were unable to repay the debt upon any such acceleration, Crestmark Bank could seek to foreclose on MG’s assets in an effort to seek repayment under the loans.  If Crestmark Bank were successful, we would be unable to conduct our business as it is presently conducted and our ability to generate revenues and fund our ongoing operations would be materially adversely affected.

 

The interest rate on a significant portion of our indebtedness varies with the market rate of interest.  An increase in the prime interest rate could have a material adverse effect on our interest expense and our results of operations.

 

The interest on the line of credit and term loan from Crestmark Bank is payable monthly and is at a rate per annum equal to the prime rate plus 7.50%, per annum (provided that at no time shall be less than 11.5%). The interest under the Crestmark Credit Facility will fluctuate over time, and if the prime rate significantly increases, our interest expense will increase.  This could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.

 

We may need additional financing to further our business plans.

 

We may require additional funds to finance our business development projects.  We may not be successful in raising additional financing as and when needed. If we are unable to obtain additional financing in sufficient amounts or on acceptable terms, our operating results and prospects could be adversely affected.

We may not realize all of the anticipated benefits of our acquisitions, joint ventures or divestitures, or these benefits may take longer to realize than expected.

 

Our business strategy includes growth through the acquisitions of other businesses in the areas of drilling, completions or production business segments.  We may not be able to continue to identify attractive acquisition opportunities or successfully acquire those opportunities that are identified.  There is always the possibility that even if there is success in integrating our current or future acquisitions into the existing operations, we may not derive the benefits, such as administrative or operational synergy or earnings obtained, that were expected from such acquisitions, which may result in the commitment of capital resources without the expected returns on the capital.  The competition for acquisition opportunities may increase which in turn would increase our cost of making further acquisitions or causing us to curb our activities of making additional acquisitions.

 

In pursuing our business strategy, from time to time we evaluate targets and enter into agreements regarding possible acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures. To be successful, we conduct due diligence to identify valuation issues and potential loss contingencies, negotiate transaction terms, complete transactions and manage post-closing matters such as the integration of acquired businesses. Our due diligence reviews are subject to the completeness and accuracy of disclosures made by third parties. We may incur unanticipated costs or expenses following a completed acquisition, including post-closing asset impairment charges, expenses associated with eliminating duplicate facilities, litigation, and other liabilities.

 

The risks associated with our future acquisitions also include the following:

 

·the business culture of the acquired business may not match well with our culture,
·we may fail to retain, motivate and integrate key management and other employees of the acquired business,
·we may experience problems in retaining customers and integrating customer bases, and
·we may experience complexities associated with managing the combined businesses and consolidating multiple physical locations.

 

We believe that we have sufficient resources to integrate these acquisitions successfully, such integration involves a number of significant risks, including management’s diversion of attention and resources.  There can be no assurance as to the extent to which the anticipated benefits of these acquisitions will be realized, if at all, or that significant time and cost beyond that anticipated will not be required with the integration of new acquisitions to the existing business.  If we are unable to accomplish the integration and management successfully, or achieve a substantial portion of the anticipated benefits of these acquisitions within the time frames anticipated by management and within budget, it could have a material adverse effect on our business.

 

Many of these factors will be outside of our control and any one of them could result in increased costs, decreases in the amount of expected revenues and diversion of management’s time and attention. They may also delay the realization of the benefits we anticipate when we enter into a transaction.  Failure to implement our acquisition strategy, including successfully integrating acquired businesses, could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We are vulnerable to the potential difficulties associated with rapid growth

 

We believe that our future success depends on our ability to manage the rapid growth that we expect to experience organically and through acquisitions.  Our anticipated growth will place additional demands and responsibilities on our management to maintain existing customers and attract new customers, recruit, retain and effectively manage employees, as well as expand operations and integrate customer support and financial control systems.  The following could present difficulties:

 

·Lack of sufficient executive level personnel,
·Increased administrative burden,
·Availability of suitable acquisitions,
·Additional equipment to satisfy customer requirements, and,
·The ability to provide focused service attention to our customers.

 

If we are unable to manage our expected future growth, our business could be materially adversely effected.

 

Compliance with climate change legislation or initiatives could negatively impact our business.

 

The U.S. Congress has considered legislation to mandate reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and certain states have already implemented, or may be in the process of implementing, similar legislation. Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court has held in its decisions that carbon dioxide can be regulated as an “air pollutant” under the Clean Air Act, which could result in future regulations even if the U.S. Congress does not adopt new legislation regarding emissions. At this time, it is not possible to predict how legislation or new federal or state government mandates regarding the emission of greenhouse gases could impact our business; however, any such future laws or regulations could require us or our customers to devote potentially material amounts of capital or other resources in order to comply with such regulations. These expenditures could have a material adverse impact on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

 

 10 

 

 

Changes in accounting guidance could have an adverse effect on our results of operations, as reported in our financial statements.

 

Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP, which is periodically revised and/or expanded. Accordingly, from time to time we are required to adopt new or revised accounting guidance and related interpretations issued by recognized authoritative bodies, including the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the SEC. Market conditions have prompted these organizations to issue new guidance that further interprets or seeks to revise accounting pronouncements related to various transactions as well as to issue new guidance expanding disclosures. An assessment of proposed standards is not provided, as such proposals are subject to change through the exposure process and, therefore, their effects on our financial statements cannot be meaningfully assessed. It is possible that future accounting guidance we are required to adopt could change the current accounting treatment that we apply to our consolidated financial statements and that such changes could have an adverse effect on our results of operations, as reported in our consolidated financial statements.

 

Unexpected events, including natural disasters, may increase our cost of doing business or disrupt our operations.

 

The occurrence of one or more unexpected events, including fires, tornadoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other forms of severe weather in the United States or in other countries in which our suppliers may be located could adversely affect our operations and financial performance. Natural disasters, pandemic illness, equipment failures, power outages or other unexpected events could result in physical damage to and complete or partial closure of one or more of our offices and disrupt our ability to deliver our products and services. Existing insurance arrangements may not provide protection for all of the costs that may arise from such events.

 

Failure to obtain and retain skilled technical personnel could impede our operations.

 

We require skilled personnel to operate and provide technical services and support for our business. Competition for the personnel required for our businesses intensifies as activity increases. In periods of high utilization it may become more difficult to find and retain qualified individuals. This could increase our costs or have other adverse effects on our operations.

 

Our operations are subject to inherent risks, some of which are beyond our control. These risks may not be fully covered under our insurance policies.

 

Our operations are subject to hazards inherent in the oil and natural gas industry, such as, but not limited to, accidents, blowouts, explosions, fires and oil spills. These conditions can cause:

 

·Personal injury or loss of life,

·Damage to or destruction of property, equipment and the environment, and

·Suspension of operations by our customers.

 

The Company maintains insurance coverage that we believe to be customary in the industry against these hazards. However, we do not have insurance against all foreseeable risks, either because insurance is not available or because of the high premium costs. As such, not all of our property is insured. The occurrence of an event not fully insured against, or the failure of an insurer to meet its insurance obligations, could result in substantial losses. In addition, we may not be able to maintain adequate insurance in the future at reasonable rates. Insurance may not be available to cover any or all of the risks to which we are subject, or, even if available, it may be inadequate, or insurance premiums or other costs could rise significantly in the future so as to make such insurance prohibitively expensive. It is likely that, in our insurance renewals, our premiums and deductibles will be higher, and certain insurance coverage either will be unavailable or considerably more expensive than it has been in the recent past. In addition, our insurance is subject to coverage limits. The occurrence of a significant event or adverse claim in excess of the insurance coverage that we maintain or that is not covered by insurance could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

Risks Related to Our Securities

 

There is a limited trading market for our shares.  You may not be able to sell your shares if you need money.

 

Our common stock is traded on the OTC Pink Market, an inter-dealer automated quotation system for equity securities.  During the thirty days preceding filing of this report, the average daily trading volume of our common stock was approximately 1,000 shares traded per day, on average, and currently is thinly traded.  As of March 31, 2018, we had 65   record holders of our common stock (not including an indeterminate number of stockholders whose shares are held by brokers in “street name”).  There has been limited trading activity in our stock, and when it has traded, the price has fluctuated widely.  We consider our common stock to be “thinly traded” and any last reported sale prices may not be a true market-based valuation of the common stock.  Stockholders may experience difficulty selling their shares if they choose to do so because of the illiquid market and limited public float for our common stock.

 

We are subject to the penny stock rules and these rules may adversely affect trading in our common stock.

 

Our common stock is a “low-priced” security under rules promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  In accordance with these rules, broker-dealers participating in transactions in low-priced securities must first deliver a risk disclosure document which describes the risks associated with such stocks, the broker-dealer’s duties in selling the stock, the customer’s rights and remedies and certain market and other information.  Furthermore, the broker-dealer must make a suitability determination approving the customer for low-priced stock transactions based on the customer’s financial situation, investment experience and objectives.  Broker-dealers must also disclose these restrictions in writing to the customer, obtain specific written consent from the customer, and provide monthly account statements to the customer. The effect of these restrictions probably decreases the willingness of broker-dealers to make a market in our common stock, decreases liquidity of our common stock and increases transaction costs for sales and purchases of our common stock as compared to other securities.

 

Transfers of our securities may be restricted by virtue of state securities “blue sky” laws which prohibit trading absent compliance with individual state laws. These restrictions may make it difficult or impossible to sell shares in those states.

 

Transfers of our common stock may be restricted under the securities or securities regulations laws promulgated by various states and foreign jurisdictions, commonly referred to as “blue sky” laws. Absent compliance with such individual state laws, our common stock may not be traded in such jurisdictions. Because the securities registered hereunder have not been registered for resale under the blue sky laws of any state, the holders of such shares and persons who desire to purchase them should be aware that there may be significant state blue sky law restrictions upon the ability of investors to sell the securities and of purchasers to purchase the securities. These restrictions may prohibit the secondary trading of our common stock. Investors should consider the secondary market for our securities to be a limited one.

 

Our Officers, Directors and significant shareholders collectively own a substantial portion of our outstanding common stock, and as long as they do, they may be able to control the outcome of stockholder voting.

 

Our Officers, Directors and significant shareholders are collectively the beneficial owners of approximately 56.7% of the outstanding shares of our common stock as of the date of this report.  As long as our Officers, Directors and significant shareholders collectively own a significant percentage of our common stock, our other shareholders may generally be unable to affect or change the management or the direction of our company without the support of our Officers, Directors and significant shareholders.  As a result, some investors may be unwilling to purchase our common stock.  If the demand for our common stock is reduced because our Officers, Directors and significant shareholders have significant influence over our company, the price of our common stock could be materially depressed.  The Officers, Directors and significant shareholders will be able to exert significant influence over the outcome of all corporate actions requiring stockholder approval, including the election of Directors, amendments to our certificate of incorporation and approval of significant corporate transactions.

 

We have the ability to issue additional shares of our common stock and shares of preferred stock without asking for stockholder approval, which could cause your investment to be diluted.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the Board of Directors to issue up to 25,000,000 shares of common stock and up to 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock.  The power of the Board of Directors to issue shares of common stock, preferred stock or warrants or options to purchase shares of common stock or preferred stock is generally not subject to stockholder approval.  Accordingly, any additional issuance of our common stock, or preferred stock that may be convertible into common stock, may have the effect of diluting your investment.

 

By issuing preferred stock, we may be able to delay, defer or prevent a change of control.

 

Our Certificate of Incorporation permits us to issue, without approval from our shareholders, a total of 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock. Our Board of Directors can determine the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to, or imposed upon, the shares of preferred stock and to fix the number of shares constituting any series and the designation of such series.  It is possible that our Board of Directors, in determining the rights, preferences and privileges to be granted when the preferred stock is issued, may include provisions that have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in control, discouraging bids for our common stock at a premium over the market price, or that adversely affect the market price of and the voting and other rights of the holders of our common stock.

 

 12 

 

 

Our stock price is volatile.

 

The trading price of our common stock has been and continues to be subject to fluctuations.  The stock price may fluctuate in response to a number of events and factors, such as quarterly variations in operating results, the operating and stock performance of other companies that investors may deem as comparable and news reports relating to trends in the marketplace, among other factors.  Significant volatility in the market price of our common stock may arise due to factors such as:

 

·our developing business,
·relatively low price per share,
·relatively low public float,
·variations in quarterly operating results,
·general trends in the industries in which we do business,
·the number of holders of our common stock, and,
·the interest of securities dealers in maintaining a market for our common stock.

 

As long as there is only a limited public market for our common stock, the sale of a significant number of shares of our common stock at any particular time could be difficult to achieve at the market prices prevailing immediately before such shares are offered, and could cause a severe decline in the price of our common stock.

 

There are limitations in connection with the availability of quotes and order information on the OTC Markets.

 

Trades and quotations on the OTC Markets involve a manual process and the market information for such securities cannot be guaranteed. In addition, quote information, or even firm quotes, may not be available.  The manual execution process may delay order processing and intervening price fluctuations may result in the failure of a limit order to execute or the execution of a market order at a significantly different price.  Execution of trades, execution reporting and the delivery of legal trade confirmation may be delayed significantly.  Consequently, one may not be able to sell shares of our common stock at the optimum trading prices.

 

There are delays in order communication on the OTC Markets.

 

Electronic processing of orders is not available for securities traded on the OTC Marketplace and high order volume and communication risks may prevent or delay the execution of one's OTC Marketplace trading orders.  This lack of automated order processing may affect the timeliness of order execution reporting and the availability of firm quotes for shares of our common stock.  Heavy market volume may lead to a delay in the processing of OTC Marketplace security orders for shares of our common stock, due to the manual nature of the market.  Consequently, one may not able to sell shares of our common stock at the optimum trading prices.

 

There is a risk of market fraud on the OTC Marketplace.

 

OTC Marketplace securities are frequent targets of fraud or market manipulation. Not only because of their generally low price, but also because the OTC Pink Market reporting requirements for these securities are less stringent than for listed or NASDAQ traded securities, and no exchange requirements are imposed.  Dealers may dominate the market and set prices that are not based on competitive forces. Individuals or groups may create fraudulent markets and control the sudden, sharp increase of price and trading volume and the equally sudden collapse of the market price for shares of our common stock.

 

There is a limitation in connection with the editing and canceling of orders on the OTC Markets.

 

Orders for OTC Pink Market securities may be canceled or edited like orders for other securities. All requests to change or cancel an order must be submitted to, received and processed by the OTC Markets.  Due to the manual order processing involved in handling OTC Markets trades, order processing and reporting may be delayed, and one may not be able to cancel or edit one's order. Consequently, one may not be able to sell its shares of our common stock at the optimum trading prices.

 

Increased dealer compensation could adversely affect our stock price.

 

The dealer's spread (the difference between the bid and ask prices) may be large and may result in substantial losses to the seller of shares of our Common Stock on the OTC Markets if the stock must be sold immediately.  Further, purchasers of shares of our Common Stock may incur an immediate "paper" loss due to the price spread.  Moreover, dealers trading on the OTC Markets may not have a bid price for shares of our Common Stock on the OTC Markets.  Due to the foregoing, demand for shares of our Common Stock on the OTC Markets may be decreased or eliminated.

Item 1B.Unresolved Staff Comments

 

None.

 

Item 2.Properties

 

Our principal executive office is located at 710 N. Post Oak Road, Suite 400, Houston, Texas, where we lease approximately 700 square feet of office space on a month to month basis at a rate of $500 per month. We also have offices located in Carthage, Texas and Odessa, Texas. Our Carthage facility is comprised of a 2,500 square foot building and one acre of property that is leased for $2,500 per month. The Carthage lease is on a month to month basis and is used for our operations throughout East Texas. Effective July 15, 2017, we leased a facility in Midland, Texas for a three year period ending July 15, 2020 at a rate of $3,000 per month. The Midland, Texas facility is comprised of approximately 2,400 square feet of space and a shared yard with several acres of storage area used for our operations in West Texas including the Permian Basin. We terminated the Midland, Texas lease effective January 2018 with mutual consent. On January 22, 2018, we entered into a two year lease for a 6,500 square foot building on approximately 1.5 acres in Odessa, Texas providing for three lease term extensions totaling six additional years. The initial rent is $6,500 per month and increases to $8,500 per month at the seventh month of the lease. After the first year anniversary, we may cancel the lease with 30 days’ notice to the landlord. Lease extensions are at our discretion and require rent increases. The Company is responsible for the repair, maintenance and insurance of the facility.

 

Currently, we believe that our facilities are adequate for our present and future needs.

The following discussion and analysis of our results of operations and financial condition should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this report. This discussion and analysis contains forward looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. The actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forwarding looking statements as a result of certain factors, including but not limited to, those which are not within our control.

 

Overview

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008. From inception through December 31, 2014, our primary business purpose was to stockpile indium, a specialty metal that is used as a raw material in a wide variety of consumer electronics manufacturing applications. As of December 31, 2014, we sold all of the indium from our stockpile. As a result, at such time we were no longer in the business of purchasing and selling indium. In December 2015, our Board of Directors approved a cash distribution to our stockholders in the amount of $1.75 per share (or approximately $3.05 million). The distribution was classified as a return of capital for tax purposes. The aggregate cash distribution was recorded against additional paid in capital for accounting purposes. During the third quarter of 2015, our Board of Directors approved a program to repurchase up to $650,000 worth of our shares of common stock. In connection therewith, we repurchased 139,070 shares of our common stock in September 2015 for approximately $200,000, or $1.40 per share. After completion of the share repurchase program and immediately prior to the Acquisition, we had 1,744,569 shares issued and outstanding.

 

On September 19, 2017, we entered into an exchange agreement with all of the members of MG Cleaners, LLC (“MG”) pursuant to which we acquired one hundred percent of the issued and outstanding membership interests of MG (“MG Membership Interests”) pursuant to which MG became our wholly-owned subsidiary. In connection with the acquisition, we issued 4,578,276 shares and agreed to pay $300,000 in cash ($250,000 in cash at closing) to the MG Members.

 

As a result of our acquisition of MG, we are now an emerging growth oilfield service company focused on the drilling rig operator market segment in the domestic United States pursuant to which we offer the following products and services: (i) product sales for the oilfield industry focused on drilling rig wash, oilfield cleaning, industrial cleaning, fleet and equipment cleaning; (ii) equipment sales for the oilfield industry including, industrial pressure washers; (iii) parts sales for our installed base on equipment, including water guns, hoses and fittings, and (iv) service crews for the oilfield industry related to cleaning and repairing drilling rigs on location.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, has issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from contracts with Customers (Topic 606), or ASU 606. ASU 606 provides guidance outlining a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers in an amount that supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. This guidance requires us to recognize revenue when we transfer promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. We are required to adopt ASU 606 at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2018. The new guidance requires enhanced disclosures, including revenue recognition policies to identify performance obligations to customers and significant judgments in measurement and recognition. We will implement the new standard using the modified retrospective approach effective January 1, 2018.  We do not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements within any accounting period presented.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02). Under ASU No. 2016-2, an entity will be required to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 offers specific accounting guidance for a lessee, a lessor and sale and leaseback transactions. Lessees and lessors are required to disclose qualitative and quantitative information about leasing arrangements to enable a user of the financial statements to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. For public companies, ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period, and requires a modified retrospective adoption, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, ”Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.” The amendments in this update simplify several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. The Company adopted the new guidance on January 1, 2017. The primary impact of adoption was the recognition of excess tax benefits in our provision for income taxes rather than paid-in capital. However, as the Company has a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset, a corresponding adjustment was recorded to increase the valuation allowance.

 

 16 

 

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2017-17”) to simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes.  ASU 2015-17 requires that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position.  ASU 2015-17 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years.  The Company has adopted the provisions of Update 2016-15 and determined that there is no impact on its financial statements.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40):  Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” The amendments in this ASU are intended to provide guidance on the responsibility of reporting entity management.  Specifically, this ASU provides guidance of management related to evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about the reporting entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and about related financial statement note disclosures.  Although the presumption that a reporting entity will continue to operate as a going concern is fundamental to the preparation of financial statements, prior to the issuance of this ASU, there was no guidance in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) related to the concept.  Due to the lack of guidance in U.S. GAAP, practitioners and their clients often faced challenges in determining whether, when, and how a reporting entity should disclose the relevant information in its financial statements. As a result, the FASB issued this guidance to require management evaluation and potential financial statement disclosures.  This ASU will be effective for financial statements with periods ending after December 15, 2016.  The Company adopted the ASU during the year and performed going concern evaluations for its 2017 fiscal year-end financial statements.

  

Results of Operations

 

Year Ended December 31, 2017 Compared to the Year Ended December 31, 2016

 

Sales for the year ended December 31, 2017 increased to $2,465,897  or approximately 54%, from $1,603,395 for the year ended December 31, 2016. The increase in revenue during the year ended 2017 is primarily attributable to the domestic drilling rig count increasing in the markets that we operate resulting in increased customer activity compared to the year ended 2016. We established a physical presence in West Texas during mid 2017 which contributed to our growth.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, cost of sales increased to $1,445,910, or approximately 58.6% of sales, compared to $939,780, or 58.6% of sales, for the comparable 2016 period. The slight decrease in cost of sales as a percentage of sales in 2017 was primarily attributable to lower materials and supplies expense, lower equipment rental costs, repairs and maintenance, partially offset by higher wages and contract labor costs.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2017 increased to $977,174, or approximately 39.6% of revenues, an increase from $363,584 or 22.7% of revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016. This increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in 2017 was primarily due to increased professional fees associated with the acquisition of MG Cleaners and its result in public company reporting status, increased wage expense, higher employee count, higher lease expense associated with establishing a presence in West Texas.

 

Stock based compensation expense was $211,320  in 2017 compared to no expense for the same period in 2016. The 2017 stock based expense was in connection with the acquisition of MG Cleaners in September 2017.

 

The impairment expense in 2017 of $27,366 was from the recognition of fair value of assets held for sale that were reclassified from fixed assets during the period. The impairment expense in 2016 was $24,905 for an inventory write down in the period.

 

There was bad debt recovery of an expense in 2017 of $10,439,  as compared to a bad debt expense of $55,872 in 2016 resulting from a customer filing for bankruptcy protection, resulting in our entire accounts receivable with that customer being charged off.

 

The acquisition costs in 2017 were $378,807 which resulted from the Company’s acquisition of MG Cleaners on September 19, 2017. There was no comparable cost in 2016.

 

The gain on settlement of accrued liability in 2017 of $7,118 resulted from the settlement of a liability from an obsolete vendor during the period. The gain on settlement of accrued liability in 2016 of $10,971 resulted from the settlement of a liability for inventory purchases payable in the period.

 

Interest expense, net, increased to $155,484 during the year ended December 31, 2017 from $52,603 for the comparable 2016 period.

The Net Loss for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $731,080  as compared to a Net Income of $178,015 for the year ended December 31, 2016. Our Net Loss in 2017 was primarily attributable to transaction costs of the MG Cleaners acquisition, public company expenses, higher professional fees, higher wages from an increase in employees, and an increase in general and administrative expenses as compared to 2016. We plan to address our Net Loss with a goal to achieve profitability in 2018 by increasing sales, covering more costs within cost of sales, improving gross margins with better sales mix with higher margin service revenues, reducing general and administrative costs of professional fees.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of December 31, 2017, our total assets were $855,413   comprised of $85,570  in cash, $441,359  in trade receivables, $142,053 in inventories, $42,300 in assets held for sale, $25,352  in prepaid expenses and $118,779  in net, property and equipment. This is an increase in total assets of $311,494  over December 31, 2016. Our working capital as of December 31, 2017 was a negative $442,542, compared to a negative working capital of $347,980 as of December 31, 2016.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, we had cash used in operating activities of $416,656 compared to $219,668 of cash provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2016. Our net cash used in operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2017 resulted primarily from our net loss, our reduction in accounts receivable of $144,996 and inventory of $131,105, and accrued expenses of $86,215, which amounts were offset by depreciation of $72,161, amortization of deferred financing costs of $63,482, stock based compensation of $211,320, impairment loss of $27,366, prepaid expenses of $24,959, and increases in accounts payable of $230,951. By comparison, we had net cash provided by operating activities of $219,668 for the year ended December 31, 2016. 

 

During the year ended December 31, 2017, we used $17,083  of cash in investing activities of which $38,248 was used for the purchase of property and equipment, offset partially by cash received in the reverse acquisition of $21,164. By comparison, we used $5,200 of cash in investing activities net cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment in the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

We had net cash provided in financing activities of $496,848 in the year ended December 31, 2017 as compared to a negative $192,400 of net cash used in financing activities for year ended December 31, 2016. Our net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2017 resulted primarily from proceeds from secured line of credit of $181,734, proceeds from notes payable of $346,150, proceeds from member contributions of $110,081, and proceeds of sales of common stock of $348,000 partially offset by payments of notes payable of $299,780  and payments for member distributions of $192,507.

 

Our net increase in cash for the year ended December 31, 2017 was $63,109  as compared to a net increase of $22,068 in the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

Our cash flows from operations and our available capital including the new line of credit of $1 million obtained in May 2017 are presently sufficient to sustain our current level of operations for the next 12 months. However, we may require up to an additional $1 million to expand and market our business in active areas of Texas. Of this amount, currently we believe we will require $200,000 in capital expenditures for additional trailer units and equipment used by our service crews and for rental purposes, $50,000 to increase inventory in our facility in West Texas and $25,000 in sales and marketing expenses associated with our growth plans. We may pursue capital from a combination of capital sources, including debt and equity financings. Failure to secure these additional funds will result in a less aggressive growth plan. We plan to improve our cash flows provided in operating activities by focusing on increasing sales, reducing professional fees as some were one-time reverse acquisition charges, and reducing product transportation costs by locally manufacturing in West Texas, complementing our current East Texas manufacturing base.

 

Historically, we have funded our capital expenditures internally through cash flow, leasing and financing arrangements. We intend to continue to fund future capital expenditures through cash flow, as well as through capital available to us pursuant to our line of credit, capital from the sale of our equity securities and through commercial leasing and financing programs.

 

On May 31, 2017, MG entered into a $1 million revolving accounts receivable financing facility with Crestmark Bank. The financing facility provides for MG to have access to the lesser of (i) $1 million or (ii) 85% of the net amount of eligible receivables (as defined in the financing agreement). The financing facility is paid for by the assignment of MG’s accounts receivable to Crestmark Bank and is secured by MG’s assets. The financing facility has an interest rate of 7.25% in excess of the prime rate reported by the Wall Street Journal per annum, with a floor minimum rate of 11.5%.  Interest and maintenance fees will be calculated on the higher of the average monthly loan balance from the prior month or a minimum average loan balance of $200,000. The financing facility is for an initial term of two-years and will renew on a year to year basis, unless terminated in accordance with the financing agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the financing facility, Crestmark has been granted a security interest in all of our assets and the assets of MG and we have agreed to guaranty all amounts due under the facility upon an event of default, however, the guaranty does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur debt in connection with its operations.

Pursuant to the terms of the financing facility, MG is not allowed to incur additional indebtedness, to create liens or other encumbrances, or to sell or otherwise dispose of MG’s assets, without the prior written consent of Crestmark. The Crestmark facility does not restrict the Company’s ability to finance its operations through the sale of its equity securities.

 

On October 15, 2010, the former managing member of MG Cleaners, Stephen Christian, purchased MG Cleaners from the previous membership interest owners (“Original MG Sellers”). In connection with that transaction, a $450,000 seller note was issued to the sellers. The note bears an interest rate of 8% and principal and interest payments are made monthly. The remaining principal balance of $307,391 was refinanced by the note holder in January 2015, bearing an interest rate of 6.00%, with principal and interest payments due monthly. The note is secured by the land and building originally occupied by MG, which property is no longer occupied. The balance of this note at December 31, 2017 was $228,947. On September 19, 2017, Stephen Christian and the Original MG Sellers amended the note, whereby the membership interests of MG Cleaners LLC were removed as security for the loan. Additionally, on September 19, 2017, the Company entered into a guaranty agreement with the Original MG Sellers with respect to the repayment of the note. This note does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional indebtedness, or the sale of its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations.

 

On February 2, 2017, we re-financed two truck notes existing with First State Bank and Trust for one new note of $53,610. The term was principal and interest payments monthly over 42 months with an interest rate of 6%. The note is secured by certain trucks and equipment of the Company. This note does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional indebtedness, or the sale of its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations.

 

On April 7, 2017 MG received $100,000 in return for an assignment and transfer to Capital Stack LLC of a specified percentage of the proceeds of each future sale made by MG, collectively “Future Receipts” until MG has received the purchased amount of $143,000. Pursuant to the terms of the Capital Stack agreement, MG cannot sell any portion of its future sales that have previously been sold to Capital Stack, however, it does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional debt, or sell its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations. The final payment to Capital Stack will be made in October 2017, at which point the Capital Stack agreement shall terminate by its terms.

 

On August 10, 2017 MG received $51,150 in return for an assignment and transfer to Libertas Funding LLC of a specified percentage of the proceeds of each future sale made by MG, collectively “Future Receipts” until MG has received the purchased amount of $67,100. Pursuant to the terms of the Libertas agreement, MG cannot sell any portion of its future sales that have previously been sold to Libertas, however, it does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional debt, or sell its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations. The final payment to Libertas will be made in November 2017, at which point the Libertas agreement shall terminate by its terms

 

On August 14, 2017, MG refinanced a note dated January 27, 2017 with First State Bank and Trust for $66,348. The unsecured note bears an interest rate of 7.25% per annum, has 47 monthly payments of $1,400, with a balloon payment of $12,086 at maturity on August 1, 2021. This note does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional indebtedness, or the sale of its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations.

 

On December 18, 2017 MG received $195,000 in return for an assignment and transfer to Libertas Funding LLC of a specified percentage of the proceeds of each future sale made by MG, collectively “Future Receipts” until MG has received the purchased amount of $278,000. Pursuant to the terms of the Libertas agreement, MG cannot sell any portion of its future sales that have previously been sold to Libertas, however, it does not restrict the Company’s ability to incur any additional debt, or sell its equity securities, in connection with financing its operations. The final payment to Libertas will be made in October 2018, at which point the Libertas agreement shall terminate by its terms.

 

From September 2017 through December 31, 2017, we sold an aggregate of 1,740,000 restricted common stock to accredited investors in a private placement for aggregate cash proceeds of $348,000.   

 

During the first quarter of 2018, we sold an aggregate of 1,140,000 restricted common stock to accredited investors for aggregate cash proceeds of $228,000.  

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The acquisition of MG Cleaners LLC by SMG Industries Inc. (formerly SMG Indium Resources Ltd.) on September 19, 2017, was accounted for as a reverse acquisition with MG Cleaners as the acquirer of SMG Industries for accounting purposes. The financial statements presented in this Annual Report on Form 10-K are presented as a continuation of the operations of MG Cleaners LLC with one adjustment to retroactively adjust the membership interests of MG Cleaners LLC to reflect the legal capital of SMG Industries prior to the September 19, 2017 acquisition, and one adjustment to eliminate the accumulated deficit of SMGI in accordance with the recapitalization of MG.

 

The preparation for financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. For a description of our significant accounting policies, see Notes to Financial Statements – Note 2 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies. Of these policies, the following are considered critical to an understanding of the Company’s Financial Statements as they require the application of the most difficult, subjective and complex judgments: (1) Use of Estimates, (2) Share-Based Payment Arrangements and (3) Income Taxes. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company records revenue when all four of the following criteria are met: (i) there is persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists; (ii) delivery of the products and/or services has occurred; (iii) the selling price is fixed or determinable; and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

The Company recognizes sales when products are delivered or services rendered to the customer. Postage and handling charges billed to customers are also recognized as sales upon shipment of the related equipment. Shipping terms are generally FOB destination, and title passes to the customer at the time and place of delivery or purchase by customers at a retail location. The company does no consignment sales. The customer has no cancellation privileges after shipment or upon purchase at our locations, other than customary rights of return. The Company excludes sales tax collected and remitted to various states from sales and cost of sales. Sales from items sold through the Company’s locations are recognized at the time of sale.

 

Revenue received from online sales are recognized when products are delivered to the customer.

 

Shipping and Fulfillment Costs

 

Freight costs incurred related to shipment of products or equipment from MG’s facilities to customers are recorded in cost of sales.

 

Concentrations

 

The Company sells direct to drilling rig operators, oilfield service companies, Oil and Gas operating companies, distributors and suppliers and performs ongoing credit evaluations of trade receivables due from customers. Generally, the Company does not require collateral for terms. An allowance for doubtful accounts is determined with respect to those amounts that the Company has determined to be doubtful of collection using specific identification of doubtful accounts and an aging of receivables analysis based on invoice due dates. Generally, trade receivables are past due after 45-60 days after an invoice date, unless special payment terms are provided. Based on this analysis, the Company recorded an allowance for doubtful accounts of $10,695   and $21,134 at December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of accounts receivable. During fiscal year 2017, two of our customers accounted for approximately 52% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 34% and another accounting for 18%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2017. During fiscal year 2016, two of our customers accounted for approximately 35% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 23% and another accounting for 12%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2016. Two customers accounted for more than 64% of accounts receivable at December 31, 2017, and three customers accounted for more than 62% of accounts receivable at December 31, 2016. No other customers exceeded 10% of accounts receivable as of December 31, 2017 and 2016. The Company believes it will continue to reduce the customer concentration risks by engaging new customers and increasing activity of existing less active customers and smaller, newer customer relationships. While the Company continues to acquire new customers in an effort to grow and reduce its customer concentration risks, management believes these risks will continue for the foreseeable future.

 

Five vendors accounted for more than 60%  of accounts payable at December 31, 2017, and three vendors accounted for more than 36% of accounts payable at December 31, 2016. No other vendors exceeded 10% of accounts payable at December 31, 2017 and 2016.

 

The Company maintains demand deposits with commercial banks. At times, certain balances held within these accounts may not be fully guaranteed or insured by the U.S. federal government. The uninsured portion of cash are backed solely by the assets of the underlying institution. As such, the failure of an underlying institution could result in financial loss to the Company.

 

Inventories

 

Inventory, consisting of raw materials, work in progress and finished goods, is valued at the lower of the inventory’s costs or market, using the first in, first out method to determine the cost. Management compares the cost of inventory with its market value and an allowance is made to write down inventory to market value, if lower, which resulted in impairment loss recognized of $0 in 2017 and $24,905 in 2016.

Advertising

 

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising expense was approximately $15,327 and $11,407 for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying statements of income. 

 

Item 7A.Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company, and therefore, we are not required to provide information required by this item.

 

Item 8.Financial Statements and Supplementary Data

 

Our financial statements and notes thereto are set forth in this annual report on Form 10-K on pages F-1 through F-11.

 

Item 9.Changes In and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure

 

Effective as of September 19, 2017, the Company dismissed Cohn Reznick LLP (“Cohn”) as its independent registered public accounting firm. The decision was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors effective September 19, 2017.

 

The reports of Cohn on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles. During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31 2016 and 2015, and the subsequent period through the date of this report, there were (i) no disagreements with Cohn on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Cohn would have caused Cohn to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its report, and (ii) no “reportable events” as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

Effective as of September 19, 2017, the Company engaged Malone Bailey, LLP (“Malone”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. The appointment of Malone was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors effective September 19, 2017. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, and the subsequent interim period through September 19, 2017, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted with Malone regarding either (1) the application of accounting principles to any specific completed or proposed transaction, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, nor did Malone provide written or oral advice to the Company that Malone concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (2) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the instructions thereto) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

 

Item 9A.Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures: Our management carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness and design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and interim Chief Financial Officer has concluded that, at December 31, 2017, such disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management including our Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls: Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system are met. Because of inherent limitation in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, if any, within a company have been detected. Our Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer has concluded, based on his evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this Report that our disclosure controls and procedures were not sufficiently effective to provide reasonable assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system were met.

 

 21 

 

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting: There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting:

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act and is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, our Chief Executive and Interim Chief Financial Officer and effected by our Board, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

·Pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;

·Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and

·Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Our management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2017. In making this assessment our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control - integrated Framework (2013).

 

Based on its evaluation, our management has concluded that, as of December 31, 2017, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective. The lack of separation of duties between the Chief Executive Officer and the Interim Chief Financial Officer, being the same person, along with the lack of personnel between processes provided two material weaknesses in the effectiveness of our controls.

 

We are a smaller reporting company and are exempt from the requirement for an attestation report on the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting by our registered public accounting firm.

PART III

 

Item 10.Directors, Executive Officers, and Corporate Governance

 

The following table sets forth the names of our Executive Officers and Directors as of the date of this Annual Report. Directors hold office for a period of one year from their election at the annual meeting of stockholders or until their successors are duly elected and qualified. Officers are elected by, and serve at the discretion of, the Board of Directors.

 

Name   Age   Position
Matthew C. Flemming   49   Chief Executive Officer, Interim Chief Financial Officer and Chairman
John P. Boylan   51   Director
Steven E. Paulson   54   Director
Michael A. Gilbert II   43   Director

  

Mr. Flemming has served as our Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors since the completion of our acquisition of MG on September 19, 2017, and since March 19, 2018 has served as our interim Chief Financial Officer. Prior thereto, Mr. Flemming was the Chief Executive Officer of MG Cleaners since June 2017. Previous to that, Mr. Flemming was a consultant for a financial restructuring firm and a financial advisor to a private closely held oilfield services company during 2016 and early 2017. From June 2011 to March 2016, Mr. Flemming was the Chief Executive Officer, Treasurer, Secretary, and Chairman of the Board of HII Technologies Inc. HII Technologies was a Houston, Texas based oilfield services company with operations in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and West Virginia focused on commercializing technologies and providing services in frac water management, safety services and portable power used by exploration and production companies in the United States. During his tenure at HII, the Company acquired three frac water management companies and started up two other operating subsidiaries driving monthly revenues from nil in August 2012 to $4.2 million by its peak in December 2014. In 2015, HII experienced significantly reduced customer activity and oil & gas pricing levels creating an industry down-turn pressuring its covenants with its debt with its senior lenders. In July 2015, HII’s senior lender declared HII in default of its senior credit facility and as a result the lender did not continue to release funds pursuant to the terms of the credit facility. As a result, HII was unable to continue to fund its operations or satisfy its reporting obligations with the SEC subsequent to its March 31, 2015 Form 10-Q filing. On September 18, 2015, HII Technologies filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of Title 111 of the U.S. Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas Victorian Division. On April 15, 2016, Mr. Flemming resigned as an officer and director of HII and the bankruptcy court entered an order confirming HII Technologies’ Plan of Reorganization. This plan became effective on May 20, 2016. On July 13, 2016, HII’s registration was revoked by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The revocation of HII’s registration was the result of proceedings instituted by the SEC, which HII accepted and consented to without admitting or denying the findings of the SEC. The SEC’s findings included that HII filed a Chapter 11 petition with the Bankruptcy court and that HII failed to comply with Exchange Act Section 13(a) and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13.

 

Prior thereto, from 2009 to 2011, Mr. Flemming was Chief Financial Officer of Hemiwedge Industries Inc. a proprietary valve technology company with oilfield applications that was sold in 2011. From 2005 to 2009, Mr. Flemming was Chief Financial Officer of Shumate Industries, Inc., an oilfield manufacturing company and successor of Excalibur. Previous to that, from 2001 to 2005, Mr. Flemming was Chief Financial Officer of Excalibur Industries, Inc. an industrial and energy related manufacturer and fabrication company. From June 1999 to March 2001, he served as Chief Executive Officer of WorldByNet, Inc. a Houston, Texas based privately held technology company. From January 1994 to May 1999, Mr. Flemming served as Chief Executive Officer of FARO Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately held national specialty products company that he founded.  Mr. Flemming received a Bachelor of Arts in Finance from the University of Houston.  

  

Mr. Boylan has served as a Director of the Company since the completion of our acquisition of MG. Mr. Boylan has served as the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Houston American Energy Corp. (NYSE MKT: HUSA) since April 2015 and served as a director of that company since 2006. Since 2008, Mr. Boylan has owned and operated EJC Ventures, LP, a financial and management consulting firm providing executive and financial management, asset management, corporate finance, risk management, complex financial reporting, crisis management, turnaround services and pre- and post-bankruptcy management services to the oil and gas industry. Mr. Boylan has served as interim chief executive officer, interim chief financial officer and in other interim management roles with private and publicly traded oil and gas companies, including operators in pre- and post-bankruptcy. Mr. Boylan holds a BBA with a major in Accounting from the University of Texas and an MBA with majors in Finance, Economics and International Business from New York University. Mr. Boylan is a licensed CPA in the State of Texas.

Mr. Paulson has served as a Director of the Company since the completion of our acquisition of MG. Mr. Paulson has been a director of TOR Minerals International Inc. (“TOR Minerals”) since 2008. TOR Minerals is a global producer of high performance, specialty mineral products focused on product innovation and technical support. Mr. Paulson has served as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Contech Control Services, an electrical and automation engineering/design services and construction firm since December 2014. Previously, Mr. Paulson served as President and Director of The Automation Group, or TAG, a national engineering firm focused in process automation, from 1996 until its sale to Emerson Electric in December 2007. Following the sale, he continued to serve as a consultant to Emerson and TAG until November 2012. Mr. Paulson received his Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University.    

 

Mr. Gilbert has served as a Director of the Company since the completion of our acquisition of MG. Mr. Gilbert is the co-founder and has been the Managing Partner of Sable Power and Gas LLC (“Sable”), an energy management services and advisory company since 2008. Prior to co-founding Sable, Mr. Gilbert was Senior Director of Gexa Energy, a retail electricity provider for residential and commercial customers from 2006 to 2008. From 2001 to 2006, Mr. Gilbert served several roles in energy trading and asset management at Citibank, Citigroup Energy and Reliant Energy. Mr. Gilbert’s experience includes energy management strategy, energy trading, risk management, data management, wholesale origination and structuring power and gas contracts for firm clients. Mr. Gilbert holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas A&M University.

 

Director Independence and Qualifications

 

The Board of Directors has determined that each of Messrs. Boylan, Paulson and Gilbert qualifies as an “independent director.” Because our common stock is not currently listed on a national securities exchange, we have used the definition of “independence” of The NASDAQ Stock Market to make this determination. NASDAQ Listing Rule 5605(a)(2) provides that an “independent director” is a person other than an officer or employee of the Company or any other individual having a relationship with the Company that, in the opinion of the Company’s Board, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. The NASDAQ listing rules provide that a director cannot be independent if:

 

·the Director is, or at any time during the past three years was, an employee of the Company,

·the Director or a family member of the Director accepted any compensation from the Company in excess of $120,000 during any period of 12 consecutive months within the three years preceding  the independence determination (subject to certain exclusions, including, among other things, compensation for board or board committee service),

·a family member of the Director is, or at any time during the past three years was, an Executive Officer of the Company,

·the director or a family member of the Director is a partner in, controlling stockholder of, or an Executive Officer of an entity to which the Company made, or from which the Company received, payments in the current or any of the past three fiscal years that exceed 5% of the recipient’s consolidated gross revenue for that year or $200,000, whichever is greater (subject to certain exclusions),

·the Director or a family member of the director is employed as an executive officer of an entity where, at any time during the past three years, any of the executive officers of the Company served on the compensation committee of such other entity, or,

·the Director or a family member of the director is a current partner of the Company’s outside auditor, or at any time during the past three years was a partner or employee of the Company’s outside auditor, and who worked on the Company’s audit.

  

The Board believes that the qualifications of the Directors, as set forth in their biographies which are listed above and briefly summarized in this section, gives them the qualifications and skills to serve as a Director of our Company. All of our directors have strong business backgrounds. The Board also believes that each of the Directors has other key attributes that are important to an effective Board: integrity and demonstrated high ethical standards; sound judgment; analytical skills; the ability to engage management and each other in a constructive and collaborative fashion and the commitment to devote significant time and energy to service on the Board and its Committees.

 

 24 

 

 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

Except as set forth below, none of our directors or executive officers has, during the past ten years:

 

·been convicted in a criminal proceeding or been subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offences),

·been subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his involvement in any type of business, securities, futures, commodities or banking activities, or,

·been found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the Securities and Exchange Commission or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended, or vacated, or,

·has had any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which he was a general partner or executive officer, either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time.

 

On September 18, 2015, HII Technologies, Inc., and each of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Apache Energy Services, LLC, Aqua Handling of Texas, LLC, Hamilton Investment Group, Inc. and Sage Power Solutions, Inc. (collectively, the “Debtors’) filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of Title 111 of the U.S. Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas Victorian Division. On April 15, 2016, the bankruptcy court entered an order confirming the Debtors’ Plan of Reorganization and the plan became effective on May 20, 2016. Mr. Flemming, who is currently an officer and member of our Board of Directors, was an officer and director of each of the Debtors during those periods.

 

Family Relationships

 

There are no family relationships among the individuals comprising our Board of Directors, management and other key personnel.

 

Board Composition

 

Our certificate of incorporation, as amended, and bylaws provide that the authorized number of Directors may be changed only by resolution of the Board. We currently have four Directors with each Director serving a one-year term which will expire at our next annual meeting of stockholders. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successors to the current Directors will be elected to serve until the next annual meeting following the election.

 

Director Independence

 

Our Board has reviewed the materiality of any relationship that each of our Directors has with us, either directly or indirectly. Based on this review, the Board has determined that Messrs. Boylan, Gilbert and Paulson are “independent directors” under the NASDAQ independence standards.

 

Board Committees

 

Our Board currently has three standing committees: Audit Committee, Nominating and Governance Committee, and a Compensation Committee, each of which is described below. All standing committees operate under charters that have been approved by the Board. Copies of the charters of the Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and the Nominating and Governance Committee can be found on our Internet site www.smg-indium.com.

 

Audit Committee.  Our Audit Committee is composed of Mr. Boylan, Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Paulson. All members of our Audit Committee are independent as defined in the NASDAQ rules. In addition, the Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Boylan satisfies the SEC’s criteria for an “audit committee financial expert.” Our Audit Committee oversees our corporate accounting, financial reporting practices and the annual audit and quarterly reviews of the financial statements. For this purpose the Audit Committee has a charter (which is reviewed periodically) and performs several functions.

 

The Audit Committee’s primary functions are:

 

·assist the Board in monitoring the integrity of our financial statements,
·appoint and retain the independent registered public accounting firm to conduct the annual audit and quarterly reviews of our financial statements and review the firm’s independence,
·review the proposed scope and results of the audit and discuss required communications in connection with the audit,
·review and pre-approve the independent registered public accounting firm’s audit and non-audit services rendered,

 

 25 

 

 

·review accounting and financial controls with the independent registered public accounting firm and our financial and accounting staff,
·meet regularly with the independent registered public accounting firm without management present,
·recognize and prevent prohibited non-audit services,
·establish procedures for complaints received by us regarding accounting matters,
·review, pass on the fairness of, and approve “related-party transactions” as required by and in conformance with the rules and regulations of NASDAQ or the SEC,
·establish procedures for the identification of management of potential conflicts of interest, and review and approve any transactions where such potential conflicts have been identified, and,
·prepare the report of the audit committee that SEC rules require to be included in our annual meeting proxy statement.

 

Compensation Committee.  Our Compensation Committee is composed of Mr. Boylan, Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Paulson. The Compensation Committee reviews its charter periodically. Our Compensation Committee’s primary functions are:

 

·review and recommend the compensation arrangements for management, including the compensation for our Chief Executive Officer,
·establish and review general compensation policies with the objective to attract and retain superior talent, to reward individual performance and to achieve our financial goals,
·approve and oversee reimbursement policies for Directors, Executive Officers and key employees,
·administer our stock incentive plan,
·review and discuss the compensation discussion and analysis prepared by management to be included in our annual report, proxy statement or any other applicable filings as required by the SEC, and,
·prepare the report of the compensation committee that SEC rules require to be included in our annual meeting proxy statement.

 

Decisions regarding executive compensation are ultimately determined by the Board upon recommendations of the Compensation Committee, which reviews a number of factors in its decisions, including market information about the compensation of executive officers at similar-sized companies within our industry and geographic region, and recommendations from our Chief Executive Officer. The Compensation Committee may consult external compensation consultants to assist with the recommendation of executive compensation. The Compensation Committee did not utilize the services of an external compensation consultant in 2017.

 

Non-executive director compensation is determined by the entire Board after review and approval by the Compensation Committee.

 

Nominating and Governance Committee.  Our Nominating and Governance Committee is composed of Mr. Boylan, Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Paulson. The Nominating and Governance Committee has a charter, which is reviewed periodically.

 

Our Nominating and Governance Committee’s primary functions are:

 

·identify the appropriate size, functioning and needs of and nominate members of the Board,
·develop and recommend to the Board of Directors a set of corporate governance principles applicable to our company and review at least annually our code of conduct and ethics,
·review and maintain oversight of matters relating to the independence of our board and committee member, in light of the independence standards of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the rules of the NASDAQ Stock Market, and,
·Oversee the evaluation of the Board and management.

 

The Nominating and Governance Committee recommends to the Board candidates for nomination to the Board. When considering individuals to recommend for nomination as Directors, our Nominating and Governance Committee seeks persons who possess the following characteristics: integrity, education, commitment to the Board, business judgment, relevant business experience, diversity, reputation, and high-performance standards. While the Board values a diversity of viewpoints and backgrounds, it does not have a formal policy regarding the consideration of diversity in identifying director nominees. The Nominating and Governance Committee may engage the services of third party search firms to assist in identifying and assessing the qualifications of Director candidates.

 

The Nominating and Governance Committee will consider recommendations for Director candidates from stockholders, provided that the stockholder submits the Director nominee and reasonable supporting material concerning the nominee by the due date for a stockholder proposal to be included in the Company’s Proxy Statement for the applicable annual meeting as set forth in Section 2.14 of the Company’s Bylaws and the rules of the SEC then in effect.

 

 26 

 

 

The Nominating and Governance Committee will consider properly and timely submitted Director candidates recommended by stockholders of the Company. Stockholders who wish to suggest qualified candidates for election to the Board should write to 710 N. Post Oak Road, Suite 400, Houston, Texas 77024 Attn: Matthew Flemming. These recommendations should include detailed biographical information concerning the nominee, his or her qualifications to be a member of the Board and a description of any relationship the nominee has to other stockholders of the Company. A written statement from the candidate consenting to be named as a candidate and, if nominated and elected, to serve as a Director should accompany any such recommendation.

 

Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight

 

Our Board evaluates its leadership structure and role in risk oversight on an ongoing basis. Currently, Matthew Flemming serves as Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. Our Board determines what leadership structure it deems appropriate based on factors such as the experience of the applicable individuals, the current business environment of the Company and other relevant factors. After considering these factors, our Board has determined that the role of Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President, is an appropriate Board leadership structure for our company at this time.

 

The Board is also responsible for oversight of our risk management practices, while management is responsible for the day-to-day risk management processes. This division of responsibilities is the most effective approach for addressing the risks facing the Company, and the Company’s Board leadership structure supports this approach. Through our President, and other members of management, the Board receives periodic reports regarding the risks facing the Company. In addition, the Audit Committee assists the Board in its oversight role by receiving periodic reports regarding our risk and control environment.

 

Corporate Code of Conduct and Ethics

 

We have adopted a corporate Code of Conduct and Ethics which is reviewed annually. The text of our Code of Conduct and Ethics, which applies to our officers and each member of our Board, is posted in the “Corporate Governance” section of our website, www.smg-indium.com. We intend to satisfy the disclosure requirement under Item 10 of Form 8-K regarding any amendments to, or waiver from, a provision of our Code of Conduct and Ethics by posting such information on our website, www.smg-indium.com. A copy of our Code of Conduct and Ethics is also available in print; free of charge, upon written request to 710 N. Post Oak Road, Suite 400, Houston, Texas 77024, Attn: Matthew Flemming.

 

Executive Compensation

 

On October 1, 2017, we entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Flemming, our Chief Executive Officer and interim Chief Financial Officer. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Mr. Flemming is paid an annual salary of $180,000 and receives health care insurance and other customary benefits. The initial term of the agreement is for a period of three years. In addition to Mr. Flemming’s base salary, Mr. Flemming is entitled to bonuses at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors.

 

On September 19, 2017, we entered into a consulting agreement with Ms. Rhodes to act as our Chief Financial Officer, which she subsequently resigned from effective March 19, 2018. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Ms. Rhodes was paid a monthly consulting fee of $4,500. On January 15, 2018, we terminated the previous agreement and entered into a new consulting agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Ms. Rhodes is paid a monthly consulting fee of $11,700. The initial term of the agreement was set to expire on March 31, 2018. Ms. Rhodes resigned as Chief Financial Officer on March 19, 2018.

 

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions and Director Independence

 

The following is a description of the transactions we have engaged in since January 1, 2017, with our Directors and Officers and beneficial owners of more than five percent of our voting securities and their affiliates:

 

In March 2015, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer resigned and Ailon Grushkin was named Chief Executive Officer, and subsequently resigned from such position on September 19, 2017. In March 2015, we also entered into the Consulting Agreement with Nano-Cap Advisors LLC (“Nano”) (2015 Nano Agreement). Mr. Grushkin is the only member of Nano. Pursuant to the terms of the 2015 Nano Agreement, Nano provided us with services normally provided by a Chief Executive Officer, as determined and directed by us, and provided us with office facilities. We agreed to pay Nano $90,000 during the year ended December 31, 2016 for such services. The term of the 2015 Nano Agreement continued until December 31, 2015. In January 2016, we entered into an agreement with Nano (the 2016 Nano Agreement), pursuant to which Ailon Grushkin, our sole officer at such time, would provide us with services normally provided by a Chief Executive Officer, as determined and directed by us, and provide us with office facilities, for an annual fee of $70,000. In March 2017, we agreed to pay Nano $35,000 under the terms of the 2016 Nano Agreement, as amended in March 2017.

 

 27 

 

 

In January 2016, we entered into a consulting agreement with Brack Advisors LLC (Brack), a company owned by Richard A Biele, one of our former Directors (Brack Agreement) that provided for the payment of $50,000 in 2016 to assist us in identifying, evaluating and negotiating strategic transactions including, but not limited to, the acquisition of a new line of business and or a reverse merger. We agreed to pay Brack $25,000 in 2017 under the Brack agreement, as amended in March 2017.

 

Simultaneously with the completion of the acquisition of MG Cleaners LLC, EJC Ventures LP entered into a purchase agreement to acquire 125,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $0.20 per share pursuant to the Company’s offering of its securities. Mr. John P. Boylan, one of our directors, is the control person of EJC Ventures LP.

 

The Board of Directors has adopted a Related Party Transaction Policy for the review of related person transactions. Under these policies and procedures, the audit committee reviews related person transactions in which we are or will be a participant to determine if they are fair and beneficial to the Company. Financial transactions, arrangements, relationships or any series of similar transactions, arrangements or relationships in which a related person has or will have a material interest and that exceeds the lesser of: (i) $120,000, and (ii) one percent of the average of the Company’s total assets at year end for the last two completed fiscal years, in the aggregate per year are subject to the audit committee’s review. Any member of the Audit Committee who is a related person with respect to a transaction under review may not participate in the deliberation or vote requesting approval or ratification of the transaction. Transactions that are subject to the policy include any transaction, arrangement or relationship (including indebtedness or guarantees of indebtedness) in which the Company is a participant with a related person. The related person may have a direct or indirect material interest in the transaction. It is Company policy that the audit committee shall approve any related party transaction before the commencement of the transaction. However, if the transaction is not identified before commencement, it must still be presented to the audit committee for their review and ratification. For more information regarding related party transactions, see the section entitled “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions” below.

 

Director Independence

 

Our Board of Directors has determined that Messrs. Boylan, Paulson and Gilbert are “independent” as defined under the standards set forth in Rule 5605 of the NASDAQ Stock Market Rules.  In making this determination, the Board of Directors considered all transactions set forth under “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions.” 

  

Legal Proceedings

 

To the best of our knowledge, none of our Directors or Executive Officers has been convicted in a criminal proceeding, excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors, or has been a party to any judicial or administrative proceeding during the past ten years that resulted in a judgment, decree, or final order enjoining the person from future violations of, or prohibiting activities subject to, federal or state securities laws, or a finding of any violation of federal or state securities laws, except for matters that were dismissed without sanction or settlement. Except as set forth in our discussion below in “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions,” none of our Directors, Director nominees, or Executive Officers has been involved in any transactions with us or any of our Directors, Executive Officers, affiliates, or associates which are required to be disclosed pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Commission.

2008 Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan

 

In 2008, our Board adopted and our stockholders approved the 2008 Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan (“the Plan”). Under this plan, we may grant incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options restricted and unrestricted stock awards and other stock-based awards. The purpose of the Plan is to provide an incentive to attract directors, officers, consultants, advisors and employees whose services are considered valuable to encourage a sense of proprietorship and to stimulate an active interest of such person in our development and financial achievements. As amended in July 2010, a maximum of 1,000,000 shares of our common stock are authorized under the Plan. The Plan expired on January 31, 2018. Our Board has authorized our Compensation Committee to administer the Plan. In connection with the administration of the Plan, the Compensation Committee, with respect to awards to be made to any person who is not one of our directors, will:

 

·determine which employees and other persons will be granted awards under the Plan;

·grant the awards to those selected to participate;

·determine the exercise price for options; and

·prescribe any limitations, restrictions and conditions upon any awards, including the vesting conditions of awards.

 

With respect to stock options or restricted stock awards to be made to any of our directors, the Compensation Committee will make recommendations to our Board as to:

 

·which of such persons should be granted stock options, restricted stock awards, performance units or stock appreciation rights;

·the terms of proposed grants of awards to those selected by our Board to participate;

·the exercise price for options; and

 

 32 

 

 

·any limitations, restrictions and conditions upon any awards.

 

Any grant of awards to any directors under the Plan must be approved by our Board. In addition, the Compensation Committee will:

 

·interpret the Plan; and

·make all other determinations and take all other action that may be necessary or advisable to implement and administer the Plan.

 

Our Board may amend the Plan at any time. However, without stockholder approval, the Plan may not be amended in a manner that would:

 

·increase the number of shares that may be issued under the Plan;

·materially modify the requirements for eligibility for participation in the Plan;

·materially increase the benefits to participants provided by the Plan; or

·otherwise disqualify the Plan for coverage under Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

 

Awards previously granted under the Plan may not be impaired or affected by any amendment of the Plan, without the consent of the affected grantees.

 

Transferability

 

With the exception of Non-Qualified Stock Options, awards are not transferable other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. Non-Qualified Stock Options are transferable on a limited basis. Restricted stock awards are not transferable during the restriction period.

 

Change of Control Event

 

The Plan provides that in the event of a change of control the Board shall have the discretion to determine whether, and to what extent to, accelerate the vesting, exercise or payment of an Award.

 

Termination of Employment/Relationship

 

Awards granted under the Plan that have not vested will generally terminate immediately upon the grantee’s termination of employment or business relationship with us or any of our subsidiaries for any reason other than retirement with our consent, disability or death. The Board or a committee of the Board may determine at the time of the grant that an award agreement should contain provisions permitting the grantee to exercise the stock options for any stated period after such termination, or for any period the Board or a committee of the Board determines to be advisable after the grantee’s employment or business relationship with us terminates by reason of retirement, disability, death or termination without cause. Incentive Stock Options will, however, terminate no more than three months after termination of the optionee’s employment, twelve months after termination of the optionee’s employment due to disability and three years after termination of the optionee’s employment due to death. The Board or a committee of the Board may permit a deceased optionee’s stock options to be exercised by the optionee’s executor or heirs during a period acceptable to the Board or a committee of the Board following the date of the optionee’s death but such exercise must occur prior to the expiration date of the stock option.

  

Dilution; Substitution

 

As described above, the Plan will provide protection against substantial dilution or enlargement of the rights granted to holders of awards in the event of stock splits, recapitalizations, asset acquisitions, consolidations, reorganizations or similar transactions. New award rights may, but need not, be substituted for the awards granted under our the Plan, or our obligations with respect to awards outstanding under the Plan may, but need not, be assumed by another corporation in connection with any asset acquisition, consolidation, acquisition, separation, reorganization, sale or distribution of assets, liquidation or like occurrence in which we are involved. In the event that the Plan is assumed, the stock issuable with respect to awards previously granted under the Plan shall thereafter include the stock of the corporation granting such new option rights or assuming our obligations under the Plan.

2018 Stock Option Plan

 

In January 2018, our board of directors and a majority of our stockholders approved and adopted the 2018 Stock Option Plan (“2018 Plan”). Under this plan, we may grant incentive stock options and non-qualified stock options.

 

The Purpose of the Plan.  The purpose of the 2018 Plan is to provide additional incentive to the directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company who are primarily responsible for the management and growth of the Company. Each option shall be designated at the time of grant as either an incentive stock option (an “ISO”) or as a non-qualified stock option (a “NQSO”).

 

The Board of Directors believes that the ability to grant stock options to employees which qualify for ISO treatment provides an additional material incentive to certain key employees. The Internal Revenue Code requires that ISOs be granted pursuant to an option plan that receives stockholder approval within one year of its adoption. The Company adopted the Plan in order to comply with this statutory requirement and preserve its ability to grant ISOs.

 

The benefits to be derived from the 2018 Plan, if any, are not quantifiable or determinable.

 

Administration of the Plan. The Plan shall be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Administrator”).  The Board of Directors shall appoint and remove members of the Compensation Committee in its discretion in accordance with applicable laws.  In compliance with Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act and Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”), the Compensation Committee shall, in the Board of Director's discretion, be comprised solely of “non-employee directors” within the meaning of said Rule 16b-3 and “outside directors” within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrator may delegate non-discretionary administrative duties to such employees of the Company as it deems proper and the Board of Directors, in its absolute discretion, may at any time and from time to time exercise any and all rights and duties of the Administrator under the Plan.

 

Subject to the other provisions of the Plan, the Administrator shall have the authority, in its discretion: (i) to grant options; (ii) to determine the fair market value of the Common Stock subject to options; (iii) to determine the exercise price of options granted; (iv) to determine the persons to whom, and the time or times at which, options shall be granted, and the number of shares subject to each option; (v) to interpret the Plan; (vi) to prescribe, amend, and rescind rules and regulations relating to the Plan; (vii) to determine the terms and provisions of each option granted (which need not be identical), including but not limited to, the time or times at which options shall be exercisable; (viii) with the consent of the optionee, to modify or amend any option; (ix) to defer (with the consent of the optionee) the exercise date of any option; (x) to authorize any person to execute on behalf of the Company any instrument evidencing the grant of an option; and (xi) to make all other determinations deemed necessary or advisable for the administration of the Plan.  The Administrator may delegate non-discretionary administrative duties to such employees of the Company as it deems proper.

 

 Shares of Stock Subject to the Plan. Subject to the conditions outlined below, the total number of shares of stock which may be issued under options granted pursuant to the Plan shall not exceed 2,000,000 shares of Common Stock, $.001 par value per share.

 

The number of shares of Common Stock subject to options granted pursuant to the Plan may be adjusted under certain conditions.  If the stock of the Company is changed by reason of a stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, combination or reclassification, appropriate adjustments shall be made by the Board of Directors in (i) the number and class of shares of stock subject to the Plan, and (ii) the exercise price of each outstanding option; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to issue fractional shares as a result of any such adjustments.  Each such adjustment shall be subject to approval by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion.

 

In the event of the proposed dissolution or liquidation of the Company, the Administrator shall notify each optionee at least thirty days prior to such proposed action.  To the extent not previously exercised, all options will terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such proposed action; provided, however, that the Administrator, in the exercise of its sole discretion, may permit exercise of any options prior to their termination, even if such options were not otherwise exercisable.  In the event of a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation or entity in which the Company does not survive, or in the event of a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company in which the Stockholders of the Company receive securities of the acquiring entity or an affiliate thereof, all options shall be assumed or equivalent options shall be substituted by the successor corporation (or other entity) or a parent or subsidiary of such successor corporation (or other entity); provided, however, that if such successor does not agree to assume the options or to substitute equivalent options therefor, the Administrator, in the exercise of its sole discretion, may permit the exercise of any of the options prior to consummation of such event, even if such options were not otherwise exercisable.

 

Participation. Every person who at the date of grant of an option is an employee of the Company or of any Affiliate (as defined below) of the Company is eligible to receive NQSOs or ISOs under the Plan.  Every person who at the date of grant is a consultant to, or non-employee director of, the Company or any Affiliate (as defined below) of the Company is eligible to receive NQSOs under the Plan.  The term “Affiliate” as used in the Plan means a parent or subsidiary corporation as defined in the applicable provisions (currently Sections 424(e) and (f), respectively) of the Code.  The term “employee” includes an officer or director who is an employee of the Company.  The term “consultant” includes persons employed by, or otherwise affiliated with, a consultant.

 

 34 

 

 

Option Price. The exercise price of a NQSO shall be not less than 85% of the fair market value of the stock subject to the option on the date of grant.  To the extent required by applicable laws, rules and regulations, the exercise price of a NQSO granted to any person who owns, directly or by attribution under the Code (currently Section 424(d)), stock possessing more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock of the Company or of any Affiliate (a “10% Stockholder”) shall in no event be less than 110% of the fair market value of the stock covered by the option at the time the option is granted.  The exercise price of an ISO shall be determined in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Code and shall in no event be less than the fair market value of the stock covered by the option at the time the option is granted.  The exercise price of an ISO granted to any 10% Stockholder shall in no event be less than 110% of the fair market value of the stock covered by the Option at the time the Option is granted.

 

Term of the Options.  The Administrator, in its sole discretion, shall fix the term of each option, provided that the maximum term of an option shall be ten years. ISOs granted to a 10% Stockholder shall expire not more than five years after the date of grant. The Plan provides for the earlier expiration of options in the event of certain terminations of employment of the holder.

 

 Restrictions on Grant and Exercise. Except with the express written approval of the Administrator, which approval the Administrator is authorized to give only with respect to NQSOs, no option granted under the Plan shall be assignable or otherwise transferable by the optionee except by will or by operation of law.  During the life of the optionee, an option shall be exercisable only by the optionee.

 

Termination of the Plan. The Plan shall become effective upon adoption by the Board of Directors; provided, however, that no option shall be exercisable unless and until written consent of the Stockholders of the Company, or approval of Stockholders of the Company voting at a validly called Stockholders’ meeting, is obtained within twelve months after adoption by the Board of Directors.  If such Stockholder approval is not obtained within such time, options granted pursuant to the Plan shall be of the same force and effect as if such approval was obtained except that all ISOs granted pursuant to the Plan shall be treated as NQSOs. Options may be granted and exercised under the Plan only after there has been compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws.  The Plan shall terminate within ten years from the date of its adoption by the Board of Directors.

 

Termination of Employment.  If for any reason other than death or permanent and total disability, an optionee ceases to be employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates (such event being called a “Termination”), options held at the date of Termination (to the extent then exercisable) may be exercised in whole or in part at any time within three months of the date of such Termination, or such other period of not less than thirty days after the date of such Termination as is specified in the Option Agreement or by amendment thereof (but in no event after the expiration date of the option (the “Expiration Date”)); provided, however, that if such exercise of the option would result in liability for the optionee under Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, then such three-month period automatically shall be extended until the tenth day following the last date upon which optionee has any liability under Section 16(b) (but in no event after the Expiration Date).  If an optionee dies or becomes permanently and totally disabled (within the meaning of Section 22(e)(3) of the Code) while employed by the Company or an Affiliate or within the period that the option remains exercisable after Termination, options then held (to the extent then exercisable) may be exercised, in whole or in part, by the optionee, by the optionee's personal representative or by the person to whom the option is transferred by devise or the laws of descent and distribution, at any time within twelve months after the death or twelve months after the permanent and total disability of the optionee or any longer period specified in the Option Agreement or by amendment thereof (but in no event after the Expiration Date). “Employment” includes service as a Director or as a Consultant.  For purposes of the Plan, an optionee's employment shall not be deemed to terminate by reason of sick leave, military leave or other leave of absence approved by the Administrator, if the period of any such leave does not exceed 90 days or, if longer, if the optionee's right to reemployment by the Company or any Affiliate is guaranteed either contractually or by statute.

 

Amendments to the Plan. The Board of Directors may at any time amend, alter, suspend or discontinue the Plan. Without the consent of an optionee, no amendment, alteration, suspension or discontinuance may adversely affect outstanding options except to conform the Plan and ISOs granted under the Plan to the requirements of federal or other tax laws relating to ISOs.  No amendment, alteration, suspension or discontinuance shall require stockholder approval unless (i) stockholder approval is required to preserve incentive stock option treatment for federal income tax purposes or (ii) the Board of Directors otherwise concludes that stockholder approval is advisable.

 

Tax Treatment of the Options.  Under the Code, neither the grant nor the exercise of an ISO is a taxable event to the optionee (except to the extent an optionee may be subject to alternative minimum tax); rather, the optionee is subject to tax only upon the sale of the Common Stock acquired upon exercise of the ISO.  Upon such a sale, the entire difference between the amount realized upon the sale and the exercise price of the option will be taxable to the optionee.  Subject to certain holding period requirements, such difference will be taxed as a capital gain rather than as ordinary income. Optionees who receive NQSOs will be subject to taxation upon exercise of such options on the spread between the fair market value of the Common Stock on the date of exercise and the exercise price of such options.  This spread is treated as ordinary income to the optionee, and the Company is permitted to deduct as an employee expense a corresponding amount.  NQSOs do not give rise to a tax preference item subject to the alternative minimum tax.

 

New Plan Benefits

 

Future grants and awards under the 2018 Plan, which may be made to Company executive officers, directors, consultants and other employees, are not presently determinable.

 

 35 

 

 

Information Regarding Options Granted

 

No grants and awards under the 2018 Plan have been made to Company executive officers, directors, consultants and other employees.  Such grants and awards will be made at the discretion of the Compensation Committee or the Board of Directors in accordance with the compensation policies of the Compensation Committee.

 

Item 13.Certain Relationships and Related Transactions and Director Independence

 

The following is a description of the transactions we have engaged in since January 1, 2017, with our directors and officers and beneficial owners of more than five percent of our voting securities and their affiliates:

 

In March 2015, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer resigned and Ailon Grushkin was named Chief Executive Officer, and subsequently resigned from such position on September 19, 2017. In March 2015, we also entered into the Consulting Agreement with Nano-Cap Advisors LLC (“Nano”) (2015 Nano Agreement). Mr. Grushkin is the only member of Nano. Pursuant to the terms of the 2015 Nano Agreement, Nano provided us with services normally provided by a Chief Executive Officer, as determined and directed by us, and provided us with office facilities. We agreed to pay Nano $90,000 during the year ended December 31, 2016 for such services. The term of the 2015 Nano Agreement continued until December 31, 2015. In January 2016, we entered into an agreement with Nano (the 2016 Nano Agreement), pursuant to which Ailon Grushkin, our sole officer at such time, would provide us with services normally provided by a Chief Executive Officer, as determined and directed by us, and provide us with office facilities, for an annual fee of $70,000. In March 2017, we agreed to pay Nano $35,000 under the terms of the 2016 Nano Agreement, as amended in March 2017.

 

In January 2016, we entered into a consulting agreement with Brack Advisors LLC (Brack), a company owned by Richard A Biele, one of our former Directors (Brack Agreement) that provided for the payment of $50,000 in 2016 to assist us in identifying, evaluating and negotiating strategic transactions including, but not limited to, the acquisition of a new line of business and or a reverse merger. We agreed to pay Brack $25,000 in 2017 under the Brack agreement, as amended in March 2017.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the shareholders and board of directors of

SMG Industries, Inc.

(formerly SMG Indium Resources, Ltd.)

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of SMG Industries, Inc. and its subsidiary (collectively, the “Company”) as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1 — Organization and Nature of Business

 

Organization and Nature of Business

 

SMG Industries Inc. (the “Company” or “SMG”) is a corporation established pursuant to the laws of the State of Delaware on January 7, 2008. On September 19, 2017 SMG entered into an Agreement and Plan of Share Exchange with MG Cleaners LLC. On January 30, 2018 the Company changed its name from SMG Indium Resources Ltd. to the current name of SMG Industries Inc.

 

SMG acquired one hundred percent of the issued and outstanding membership interests of MG Cleaners LLC pursuant to which MG Cleaners LLC became our wholly-owned subsidiary. In connection with the acquisition, we issued 4,578,276 shares and agreed to pay $300,000 in cash to the Managing MG Member, Stephen Christian, payable with $250,000 at closing and the remaining $50,000 paid upon the completion of the Company’s sale of a minimum of $500,000 of its securities in a private offering to investors. The $50,000 liability is recorded as an Accounts Payable – Related Party on the balance sheet.

 

The merger was accounted for as a reverse acquisition with MG Cleaners LLC being treated as the accounting acquirer. As such, the historical information for all periods presented prior to the merger date relate to MG Cleaners LLC. Subsequent to the merger date, the information relates to the consolidated entities of SMG with its subsidiary MG Cleaners LLC.

 

In connection with the acquisition, net cash received was $21,164, and costs incurred were $378,807 including professional fees for legal and accounting services, as well as registration and filing fees.

 

The Company is an emerging growth oilfield service company focused on the drilling rig operator market segment in the domestic United States pursuant to which we offer the following products and services: (i) product sales for the oilfield industry focused on drilling rig wash, oilfield cleaning, industrial cleaning, fleet and equipment cleaning; (ii) equipment sales for the oilfield industry; (iii) parts sales for our installed base on equipment, including water guns, hoses and fittings, and (iv) service crews for the oilfield industry related to cleaning and repairing drilling rigs on location.

 

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly subsidiary, all of which have a fiscal year end of December 31. All intercompany accounts, balances and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates in Financial Statement Preparation

 

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, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

 F-6 

 

 

Acquisition Accounting

 

The Company’s acquisitions are accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting whereby purchase price is allocated to tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on fair value. The excess of the fair value of the consideration conveyed over the fair value of the net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. The statements of operations for the fiscal years presented include the results of operations for each of the acquisitions from the date of acquisition.

 

Customer Concentration and Credit Risk

 

During fiscal year 2017, two of our customers accounted for approximately 52% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 34% and another accounting for 18%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2017. During fiscal year 2016, two of our customers accounted for approximately 35% of our total gross revenues, with one customer accounting for 23% and another accounting for 12%. No other customers exceeded 10% of revenues during 2016. Two customers accounted for more than 64% of accounts receivable at December 31, 2017, and four customers accounted for more than 72% of accounts receivable at December 31, 2016. No other customers exceeded 10% of accounts receivable as of December 31, 2017 and 2016. The Company believes it will continue to reduce the customer concentration risks by engaging new customers and increasing activity of existing less active customers and smaller, newer customer relationships. While the Company continues to acquire new customers in an effort to grow and reduce its customer concentration risks, management believes these risks will continue for the foreseeable future.

 

Five vendors accounted for more than 60% of accounts payable at December 31, 2017, and three vendors accounted for more than 36% of accounts payable at December 31, 2016. No other vendors exceeded 10% of accounts payable at December 31, 2017 and 2016.

 

The Company maintains demand deposits with commercial banks. At times, certain balances held within these accounts may not be fully guaranteed or insured by the U.S. federal government. The uninsured portion of cash are backed solely by the assets of the underlying institution. As such, the failure of an underlying institution could result in financial loss to the Company.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents include all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are comprised of unsecured amounts due from customers. The Company carries its accounts receivable at their face amounts less an allowance for bad debts. The allowance for bad debts is recognized based on management’s estimate of likely losses per year, based on past experience and review of customer profiles and the aging of receivable balances. As of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the allowance for bad debts was $10,695 and $21,134, respectively.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory, consisting of raw materials, work in progress and finished goods, is valued at the lower of the inventory’s costs or market, using the first in, first out method to determine the cost. Management compares the cost of inventory with its market value and an allowance is made to write down inventory to net realized value, if lower, which resulted in impairment loss recognized of $0 and $24,905 in 2017 and 2016, respectively.

 

 F-7 

 

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is valued at cost. Additions are capitalized and maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Gains and losses on dispositions of equipment are reflected in operations. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:

 

    Estimated
Category   Useful Lives
     
Building and improvements   20 years
Vehicles and trailers   5 years
Equipment   5 -7 years
Furniture, Fixtures and Other   3 - 7 years

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when all of the following criteria are met: 1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement, 2) delivery has occurred, 3) the price is fixed and determinable, and 4) collectability is reasonably assured. MG recognizes revenues after a service has been performed and completed and the customer has assigned a work ticket, or, a product sale has been shipped to a customer. Typically the Company receives verbal orders from customers for services to be rendered.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

Cost of revenue includes all direct expenses incurred to produce the revenue for the period. This includes, but is not limited to, raw materials, direct employee cost, direct contract labor, transportation costs, equipment rental, equipment maintenance, and fuel. Cost of revenues are recorded in the same period as the resulting revenue.

 

Employee Benefits

 

Wages, salaries, bonuses and social security contributions are recognized as an expense in the year in which the associated services are rendered by employees. Any unused portion of accrued sick or vacation leave expires on December 31 of each year and is not eligible to be carried over to the following year.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying value of short-term instruments, including cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and short-term notes approximate fair value due to the relatively short period to maturity for these instruments. The long-term debt approximate fair value since the related rates of interest approximate current market rates.

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The Company utilizes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurements, defined as follows:

 

Level 1:inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets

 

Level 2:inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the assets or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instruments.

 

Level 3:inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value

 

The Company does not have any assets or liabilities that are required to be measured and recorded at fair value on a recurring basis.

Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share

 

The Company presents both basic and diluted net loss per share on the face of the statements of operations. Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted per share calculations give effect to all potentially dilutive shares of common stock outstanding during the period, including stock options and warrants, and using the treasury-stock method. If anti-dilutive, the effect of potentially dilutive shares of common stock is ignored. For the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, 500,000 and 377,500 of stock options were considered for their dilutive effects, respectively.

 

Basic and Diluted Income (Loss)  2017   2016 
         
Net Income (Loss)  $(731,080)  $178,015 
           
Basic and Dilutive Shares:

Net dilutive stock options   -    - 
Dilutive shares   3,423,150    1,408,276 

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted under the asset-and-liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to the differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and the respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. The portion of any deferred tax asset for which it is more likely than not that a tax benefit will not be realized must then be offset by recording a valuation allowance. A valuation allowance has been established against all of the deferred tax assets, as it is more likely than not that these assets will not be realized given the Company’s expected operating losses. The Company recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgement occurs. The Company recognizes potential interest and penalties, if any, related to income tax positions as a component of the provision for income taxes on the statements of operations.

  

Share-Based Payment Arrangements

 

The Company measures the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments (share-based payments, or SBP) based on the grant-date fair value of the award. That cost is recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the SBP award—the requisite service period (vesting period). For SBP awards subject to conditions, compensation is not recognized until the performance condition is probable of occurrence. The grant-date fair value of share options is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model. Compensation expense for SBP awards granted to nonemployees is remeasured each period as the underlying options vest.

 

 F-9 

 

 

The fair value of each option granted during the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model with the weighted average assumptions in the following table:

 

   Year Ended December 31, 
   2017   2016 
Expected dividend yield   0%   0%
Expected option term (years)   5    5 
Expected volatility   127.52%   13%
Risk-free interest rate   2.06%   1.22%

 

The expected term of options granted represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The expected volatility was based on the volatility in the trading of the Company’s common stock. The assumed discount rate was the default risk-free five-year interest rate provided by Bloomberg L.P.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, has issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from contracts with Customers (Topic 606), or ASU 606. ASU 606 provides guidance outlining a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers in an amount that supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. This guidance requires us to recognize revenue when we transfer promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. We are required to adopt ASU 606 at the beginning of our first quarter of fiscal 2018. The new guidance requires enhanced disclosures, including revenue recognition policies to identify performance obligations to customers and significant judgments in measurement and recognition. We will implement the new standard using the modified retrospective approach effective January 1, 2018. We do not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements within any accounting period presented.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02). Under ASU No. 2016-2, an entity will be required to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on its balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 offers specific accounting guidance for a lessee, a lessor and sale and leaseback transactions. Lessees and lessors are required to disclose qualitative and quantitative information about leasing arrangements to enable a user of the financial statements to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. For public companies, ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period, and requires a modified retrospective adoption, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, ”Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting.” The amendments in this update simplify several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. The Company adopted the new guidance on January 1, 2017. The primary impact of adoption was the recognition of excess tax benefits in our provision for income taxes rather than paid-in capital. However, as the Company has a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset, a corresponding adjustment was recorded to increase the valuation allowance.

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2017-17”) to simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes. ASU 2015-17 requires that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. ASU 2015-17 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company has adopted the provisions of Update 2016-15 and determined that there is no impact on its financial statements.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern.” The amendments in this ASU are intended to provide guidance on the responsibility of reporting entity management. Specifically, this ASU provides guidance of management related to evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about the reporting entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and about related financial statement note disclosures. Although the presumption that a reporting entity will continue to operate as a going concern is fundamental to the preparation of financial statements, prior to the issuance of this ASU, there was no guidance in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) related to the concept. Due to the lack of guidance in U.S. GAAP, practitioners and their clients often faced challenges in determining whether, when, and how a reporting entity should disclose the relevant information in its financial statements. As a result, the FASB issued this guidance to require management evaluation and potential financial statement disclosures. This ASU will be effective for financial statements with periods ending after December 15, 2016. The Company adopted the ASU during the year and performed going concern evaluations for its 2017 fiscal year-end financial statements.

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN

 

The Company considered its going concern disclosure requirements in accordance with ASC 240-40-50.  The Company concluded that its negative working capital and decreased cash flows from operating are conditions that raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Without a successful plan in place from management these conditions could negatively impact the Company’s ability to meets its financial obligations over the next year.  In response, the Company has implemented a plan to alleviate such substantial doubt as follows.  The Company will continue to generate additional revenue (and positive cash flows from operations) partly related to the Company’s expansion into a new region during 2017 and partly related to the Company wide sales initiatives already implemented.  In addition there were several one-time expenses in 2016 and 2017 related to expansion to the new region and related to the merger transaction completed in September 2017.  As a result substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is alleviated.

Accounts Receivable Financing Facility (Secured Line of Credit)

 

On May 11, 2017, SMG Indium Resources Ltd. (the “Borrower”) entered into a $1 million revolving accounts receivable financing facility with Crestmark Bank. The financing facility provides for the Borrower to have access to the lesser of (i) $1 million or (ii) 85% of Net Amount of Eligible Receivables (as defined in the financing agreement). The financing facility is paid for by the assignment of the Borrower’s accounts receivable to Crestmark Bank and is secured by the Borrower’s assets. The financing facility has an interest rate of 7.25% in excess of the prime rate reported by the Wall Street Journal per annum, with a floor minimum rate of 11.5%.  There were no loan origination or closing fees and we paid $1,330 to Crestmark to reimburse them for documentation, legal and audit fees. Interest and maintenance fees will be calculated on the higher of the average monthly loan balance from the prior month or a minimum average loan balance of $200,000. The financing facility is for an initial term of two-years and will renew on a year to year basis, unless terminated in accordance with the financing agreement.  If the facility is terminated prior to the first anniversary, Borrower is obligated to pay Crestmark Bank a fee of $20,000 and if terminated after the first anniversary and prior to the second anniversary then Borrower shall pay a fee of $5,000. After the second anniversary of the financing facility no exit fee is due. Crestmark has a senior security interest in the Borrower’s assets. The balance of this second line of credit was $353,975 as of December 31, 2017.

NOTE 12 – INCOME TAXES

 

The components of income taxes are as follows, in thousands:

 

   For the Year Ended 
   December 31, 2017   December 31, 2016 
         
Current income tax expense (benefit)  $-   $             - 
Deferred income tax expense (benefit)   (40,000)   - 
Valuation Allowance   40,000    - 
Income tax expense (benefit)  $-   $- 

 

For the year ended December 31, 2016 and for the eight and a half months ended September 19, 2017, the Company reported for income tax purposes as a disregarded entity, income and expenses passed through to the sole owner's individual income tax return. The deferred tax asset table below includes $130,000 of net operating loss carryforwards related to the historic business of SMG Indium Resources Ltd before the merger with MG Cleaners as discussed in Note 1.

 

Reconciliation between the provision for income taxes, computed by applying the statutory Federal income tax rate of 21% to net income before income taxes, and the actual income tax expense follows

 

   For the Year Ended 
   December 31, 2017   December 31, 2016 
         
Federal income tax provision at statutory rates   34.00%   0.00%
Reduction due to tax law change   -13.00%   0.00%
Valuation Allowance   -21.00%   0.00%
Effective tax rate   0.00%   0.00%

 

The components of deferred tax assets are as follows, in thousands:

 

   December 31, 2017   December 31, 2016 
Deferred tax asset:          
Net operating loss carryforwards  $170,000   $- 
Expenses not currently deductible   9,000    - 
Total   179,000    - 
Valuation allowance   (179,000)   - 
Net deferred tax asset  $-   $- 

 

A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that a portion or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. The differences between book income and tax income relate principally to revenue recognition and to differences between accelerated methods of depreciation allowed on income tax returns and straight-line methods of depreciation used for book purposes. The valuation allowance for 2017 was applied to offset the deferred tax assets in recognition of the uncertainty that such benefits will be realized as a result of the change in ownership of more than 50% through the reverse acquisition of the oilfield company in September 2017. Pursuant to Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, the annual utilization of a company’s net operating loss may be limited if the company experiences a change in ownership of more than fifty percent within a three-year period. Such change occurred in September 2017. Net operating losses prior to the date of change, available to offset future taxable income, are limited by IRC Section 382. At December 31, 2017, the company has net operating losses available for the 20-year carryforward of approximately $809,000, $2,805,000 being lost due to the Section 382 limitation.

The New Tax Act, signed into law on December 22, 2017 made significant changes to the Internal Revenue Code. These changes include of corporate tax rate decrease from 35% to 21% effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2017. Additionally, the NOL carryforward period for new NOLs will change from 20 succeeding taxable years to an indefinite period. With the elimination of the alternative minimum tax, NOLs for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017, can offset 80% of Federal taxable income. Since the Company is using the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes and because deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates applied to taxable income in the years in which temporary differences are expected to reverse, the Company is revaluing the net deferred assets, fully offset by a valuation allowance, after December 31, 2017.

 

The Company’s Federal and state income tax returns are subject to audit for all open years, starting with 2014 year.
