QUEST WATER GLOBAL, INC.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

September 30, 2014

(Expressed in US dollars)

(unaudited)

 

1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated interim financial statements of Quest Water Global, Inc. (the “Company”) should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. In the opinion of management, the accompanying financial statements reflect all adjustments of a recurring nature considered necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the periods shown.

 

The preparation of the consolidated interim financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. As at September 30, 2014, the Company has a working capital deficiency of $1,229,657 of which $670,846 is owed to the two principal shareholders (Note 5), and an accumulated deficit of $7,362,427. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary equity financing to continue to develop its business and ultimately on the attainment of profitable operations. The Company is in the process of arranging additional capital financing that may assist in addressing these issues; however, these factors continue to raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

2. Significant Accounting Policies

 

  (a) Principles of Consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”), and are expressed in US dollars. These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Quest; Quest’s wholly owned subsidiary, Quest Water Solutions Inc., a company incorporated under the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada; and its 88% owned inactive subsidiaries Agua Cuilo Lda., Cuilo Embalnages, Lda., and Cuilo Comercial, Lda. All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

 

  (b) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has limited operations and is considered to be in the development stage. In the period ended September 30, 2014, the Company elected to early adopt Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-10, Development Stage Entities (Topic 915): Elimination of Certain Financial Reporting Requirements. The adoption of this ASU allows the Company to remove the inception to date information and all references to development stage.

 

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

On February 25, 2014, the Company amended the exercise price of 1,550,000 stock options granted on May 30, 2012 from $0.90 to $0.19 per share. Modifications to the terms of an award are treated as an exchange of the original award for a new award. Incremental compensation cost is measured as the excess, if any, of the fair value of the original award immediately before its terms are modified, measured on the share price and other pertinent factors at that date. The Company recognized an incremental compensation cost of $97,240 for these modified stock options, which is included in consulting fees.

 

The fair values for stock options granted have been estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model assuming no expected dividends and the following weighted average assumptions:

 

   Nine months
ended
September 30, 2014
   Nine months

Risk-free Interest rate   0.11%    
Expected life (in years)   1.3     
Expected volatility   162%    

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded stock-based compensation of $453,664 (2013 - $nil) for stock options granted, of which $332,731 was included in management fees and $120,933 was included in consulting fees.

 

The weighted average fair value of the stock options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $0.12 (2013 - $nil) per option.

 

As at September 30, 2014, the aggregate intrinsic value of stock options outstanding is $nil.

 

9. Commitments

 

  (a) On November 1, 2011, the Company entered into a management agreement with the President of the Company whereby it is obligated to pay $12,500 per month starting on October 3, 2011 to November 1, 2016.

  (ii) The greater of:

 

  The aggregate remaining fees for the unexpired remainder of the term; or

PRESENTATION OF INFORMATION

 

As used in this quarterly report, the terms “we”, “us”, “our” and the “Company” mean Quest Water Global, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries, unless otherwise indicated.

 

This quarterly report includes our interim unaudited consolidated financial statements as at and for the period ended September 30, 2014.

As disclosed in our current report on Form 8-K dated January 10, 2012, on January 6, 2012, we completed a share exchange with Quest Water Solutions, Inc. (“Quest”), a Nevada corporation that is now our wholly owned subsidiary and operating business (the “Share Exchange”). The Share Exchange was treated as a recapitalization effected through a share exchange, with Quest as the accounting acquirer and the Company as the accounting acquiree. Our consolidated financial statements are therefore, in substance, those of Quest.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of our results of operations and financial condition has been derived from and should be read in conjunction with our interim unaudited consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto that appear elsewhere in this quarterly report, as well as the “Presentation of Information” section that appears at the beginning of this quarterly report.

 

Corporate History and Background

 

We were incorporated under the laws of Delaware on February 25, 2010. From our inception until the closing of the Share Exchange, we sought to provide dental and other medical professionals with turn-key marketing solutions to generate referrals from existing clients and new business from the general public through our wholly owned subsidiary RPM Dental Systems, LLC (“RPM Kentucky”). RPM Kentucky was formed on September 15, 2009, under the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and we acquired RPM Kentucky on March 23, 2010.

 

Prior to the Share Exchange, we had minimal revenue and our operations were limited to capital formation, organization and development of our business plan. As a result of the Share Exchange, we ceased our prior operations and, through Quest, we now operate as an innovative water technology company that provides sustainable and environmentally sound solutions to water-scarce regions.

 

Quest was incorporated under the laws of Nevada on October 20, 2008 and commenced operations on February 20, 2009. Its operations to date have consisted of business formation, strategic development, marketing, technologies development, negotiations with technologies companies and capital raising activities. Quest has not generated any revenues since its inception.

 

Acquisition of Quest

 

On January 6, 2012, we completed the Share Exchange whereby we acquired all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Quest in exchange for 2,568,493 shares of our common stock (on a pre-forward split basis), or approximately 62.74% of our issued and outstanding common stock as of the consummation of the Share Exchange. Subsequent to the Share Exchange, we completed a 20 for 1 forward split of our common stock (the “Forward Split”) that became effective on March 1, 2012. Pursuant to the Forward Split, the 2,568,493 shares described above increased to 51,369,860 shares.

 

As a result of the Share Exchange, Quest became our wholly owned subsidiary and John Balanko and Peter Miele became our principal stockholders. The Share Exchange was treated as a recapitalization effected through a share exchange, with Quest as the accounting acquirer and the Company as the accounting acquiree.

 

In connection with and effective upon the closing of the Share Exchange, Josh Morita, our former President, Chief Executive Officer, director and principal stockholder, and Dr. Laura Sloan, our former director, resigned as members of our Board of Directors and Mr. Morita resigned as our sole officer. Also effective upon the closing of the Share Exchange, John Balanko and Peter Miele were appointed to fill the vacancies on our Board of Directors created by the resignations of Mr. Morita and Ms. Sloan. In addition, our Board of Directors appointed Mr. Balanko as our President and Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Miele as our Vice President and Secretary, all effective upon the closing of the Share Exchange. On April 13, 2012, we also appointed Mr. Miele as our Chief Financial Officer.

As a result of our acquisition of Quest, Quest became our wholly owned subsidiary and we assumed the business and operations of Quest. We then changed our name from RPM Dental, Inc. to Quest Water Global, Inc. to more accurately reflect our new business operations.

 

Business Overview

 

We provide sustainable and environmentally sound solutions to water scarce regions. Our goal is to address the vital issue of water quality and water supply by providing an alternative, sustainable source of pure water at the smallest possible environmental cost to global areas in need, while becoming a leading company in providing turn-key solutions using alternative energy for the purification, desalination and distribution of clean drinking water.

 

We have developed a proprietary community drinking water station consisting of a self-contained water purification system using either a reverse osmosis membrane or ultrafiltration membrane, powered by photovoltaic solar panels and hosted in modified shipping containers. Each AQUAtapTM unit is energy self-sufficient with minimal operational and maintenance costs. We believe that this product represents the first truly environmentally sound solution to drinking water shortages as it is autonomous, decentralized and sustainable, and because each unit is capable of converting brackish, sea or contaminated surface water into 20,000 litres of high quality drinking water each day, suitable for 1,000 people.

 

In addition to the solar-powered water purification systems, we have also developed a technology known as WEPSTM (water extraction and purification system) that produces potable water from humidity in the atmosphere. WEPSTM technology works by converting humidity into water, otherwise known as atmospheric water extraction.

 

To date, we have focused our activities on the fifteen countries of the Southern African Development Community (“SADC”), with specific attention to Angola. There is a vast and increasing demand for a sustainable, cost-effective and decentralized continuous supply of clean drinking water in most areas of the SADC. We provide clean drinking water to end-users utilizing various formats of our water purification and distribution systems that include inexpensive bulk drinking water and government-subsidized community level drinking water. Applications of our systems include rural and urban community water supply, water supply for household needs, remote work site camps and water supply for disaster relief.

 

We are in the process of negotiating a formal agreement with the Ministry of Industry and Ministry of Energy & Water regarding becoming an official registered supplier for the government of Angola’s $650 million “Water for All” program and for the construction of a facility to assemble the AQUAtap™ stations in that country. In June 2012, our management met with the African Development (“AfDB”) to discuss financing the proposed AQUAtap™ assembly plant(s) to be built in Angola and the level of funding required to carry out such an undertaking. These discussions established that we would require between $5.5-6 million per facility, including construction, inventory and working capital. As a result of the meetings, we received a non-binding letter of intent from the AfDB regarding the funding of the proposed project and the Angolan government indicated that once an agreement had been consummated, they would in turn submit a request for funding to the AfDB on our behalf.

Results of Operations

 

For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2014

 

Revenue

 

We have not generated any revenues since our inception. We anticipate that we will incur substantial losses for the foreseeable future and our ability to generate any revenues in the next 12 months continues to be uncertain.

 

Expenses

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred $151,347 in total expenses, including $75,000 in management fees, $47,251 in consulting fees, $15,271 in professional fees, $6,419 in automotive expenses, $5,815 in rent, $4,875 in office and miscellaneous expenses, $3,619 in telephone expenses, $3,273 in transfer agent and filing fees, $1,053 in amortization, $664 in advertising and promotion expenses and $226 in travel expenses, as offset by a foreign exchange gain of $12,119. During the same period in the prior year, we incurred $144,900 in total expenses, including $75,000 in management fees, $3,121 in consulting fees, $12,649 in professional fees, $5,008 in automotive expenses, $3,333 in rent, $10,257 in office and miscellaneous expenses, $4,116 in telephone expenses, $1,595 in transfer agent and filing fees, $14,641 in amortization, $261 in advertising and promotion expenses, $9,673 in travel expenses and $5,246 in foreign exchange loss. The 4% increase in our total expenses during the most recent period resulted primarily from a significant increase in our consulting fees. However, during the three months ended September 30, 2014 our amortization and travel expenses both decreased substantially on a period-to-period basis.

 

Net Loss

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred a loss before other expense of $151,347 and a net loss of $152,389, whereas we incurred a loss before other expense of $144,900 and a net loss of $162,097 during the same period in the prior year. The majority of our other expense during each of those periods was related to the accretion of discounts on our convertible notes payable. We did not experience any net loss per share during the three months ended September 30, 2014 or 2013.

For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

 

Expenses

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred $1,090,665 in total expenses, including $557,731 in management fees, $354,932 in consulting fees, $71,622 in professional fees, $43,315 in advertising and promotion expenses, $17,469 in automotive expenses, $17,291 in office and miscellaneous expenses $16,717 in rent, $9,949 in transfer agent and filing fees, $9,379 in telephone expenses, $3,125 in amortization and $483 in travel expenses, as offset by a foreign exchange gain of $11,348. During the same period in the prior year, we incurred $498,172 in total expenses, including $225,000 in management fees, $21,338 in consulting fees, $84,035 in professional fees, $28,216 in advertising and promotion expenses, $14,774 in automotive expenses, $21,411 in office and miscellaneous expenses, $18,313 in rent, $2,414 in transfer agent and filing fees, $12,028 in telephone expenses, $43,925 in amortization and $29,501 in travel expenses, as offset by a foreign exchange gain of $2,783. The 119% increase in our total expenses during the most recent period resulted primarily from significant increases in two major expense categories, management fees and consulting fees. However, during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 our amortization and travel expenses also both decreased substantially on a period-to-period basis.

 

Net Loss

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred a loss before other expense of $1,090,665 and a net loss of $1,109,613, whereas we incurred a loss before other expense of $498,172 and a net loss of $549,415 during the same period in the prior year. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 we experienced a net loss per share of $0.01.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2014, we had $184 in cash, $10,241 in total assets, $1,231,754 in total liabilities and a working capital deficiency of $1,229,657. As of September 30, 2014 we had an accumulated deficit of $7,362,427.

 

To date, we have experienced negative cash flows from operations and we have been dependent on sales of our common stock and capital contributions to fund our operations. We expect this situation to continue for the foreseeable future, and we anticipate that we will experience negative cash flows during the year ended December 31, 2014.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we spent $48,048 in cash on operating activities, compared to $31,522 in cash spending on operating activities during the same period in the prior year. The 52% increase in our cash spending on operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was primarily attributable to the increase in our net loss as described above as well as certain changes in our operating assets and liabilities and a significant stock-based compensation adjustment.

 

We did not spend any cash on investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 or 2013.

 

We received $46,627 in cash from financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2014, all of which was in the form of advances from related parties. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we received $30,000 in cash from financing activities, all of which was in the form of proceeds from the issuance of our common stock.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, our cash decreased by $1,421 as a result of our operating, investing and financing activities, from $1,605 to $184. As of September 30, 2014, we did not have sufficient cash resources to meet our operating expenses for the next month based on our current burn rate.

Plan of Operations

 

Our plan of operations over the next 12 months is to continue to address water quality and supply issues in Angola through the installation of our AQUAtapTM community drinking water stations as well as the employment of our WEPSTM technology, and we anticipate that we will require a minimum of $745,000 to pursue those plans. However, as described above, we are currently in the process of negotiating a formal agreement with the Angolan Ministry of Industry and Ministry of Energy & Water regarding becoming an official registered supplier for the “Water for All” program and for the construction of a facility to assemble our AQUAtap™ stations. Our cash requirements will change substantially if we are able to successfully enter into such an agreement, but we expect that the AfDB will fund a large portion of the construction, inventory and working capital costs of the proposed project in those circumstances.

 

We intend to meet the balance of our cash requirements for the next 12 months through a combination of debt financing and equity financing through private placements. Currently we are active in contacting broker/dealers in Canada and elsewhere regarding possible financing arrangements. However, we do not currently have any arrangements in place to complete any further private placement financings and there is no assurance that we will be successful in completing any such financings. If we are unsuccessful in obtaining sufficient funds through our capital raising efforts, we may review other financing options.

 

During the next 12 months, we estimate that our planned expenditures will include the following:

 

Description  Amount
($)
 
Equipment purchases   10,000 
Rent   30,000 
Management fees   300,000 
Consulting fees   150,000 
Professional fees   130,000 
Advertising and promotion expenses   15,000 
Travel and automotive expenses   60,000 
General and administrative expenses   50,000 
Total   745,000 

 

Going Concern

 

Our financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies we will continue to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business. As at September 30, 2014, we had a working capital deficiency of $1,229,657 and an accumulated deficit of $7,362,427. Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from our shareholders, our ability to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations, and the attainment of profitable operations. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We have identified certain accounting policies, described below, that are important to the portrayal of our current financial condition and results of operations.
