NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND GOING CONCERN

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Bantek and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Drone USA, LLC (inactive), and Howco. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for interim financial information. Accordingly certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements in accordance with GAAP have been omitted. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the six months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 30, 2019. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended September 30, 2018 and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on December 29, 2018. The consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018 contained herein has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2018, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the six months ended March 31, 2019, the Company has incurred a net loss of $2,082,412 and used cash in operations of $746,317. The working capital deficit, stockholders’ deficit and accumulated deficit was $6,132,362, $10,090,060 and $21,713,704, respectively, at March 31, 2019. Furthermore, on April 13, 2017 the Company received a default notice on its payment obligations under the senior secured credit facility agreement (see Note 10), defaulted on its Note Payable – Seller in September 2017, and as of March 31, 2019 has received demands for payment of past due amounts from several consultants and service providers. It is management’s opinion that these matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the issuance date of this report. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon management’s ability to further implement its business plan and raise additional capital as needed from the sales of stock or debt. The Company has been implementing cost-cutting measures and restructuring or setting up payment plans with vendors and service providers and plans to raise equity through a private placement, and has restructured its secured obligations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be required should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include the allowance for bad debt on accounts receivable, reserves on inventory, valuation of goodwill and intangible assets for impairment analysis, valuation of stock based compensation, the valuation of derivative liabilities and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company follows the FASB Fair Value Measurements standard, as they apply to its financial instruments. This standard defines fair value, outlines a framework for measuring fair value, and details the required disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset, or paid to transfer a liability, in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The standard establishes a hierarchy in determining the fair value of an asset or liability. The fair value hierarchy has three levels of inputs, both observable and unobservable. Level 1 inputs include quoted market prices for identical assets or liabilities in an active market that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date. Level 2 inputs are market data, other than Level 1, that are observable either directly or indirectly. Level 2 inputs include quoted market prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted market prices in an inactive market, and other observable information that can be corroborated by market data. Level 3 inputs are unobservable and corroborated by little or no market data. The standard requires the utilization of the lowest possible level of input to determine fair value and carrying amounts of current liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. The Company accounts for certain instruments at fair value using level 3 valuation.

 

   At March 31, 2019   At September 30, 2018 
Description  Level 1   Level 2   Level 3   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Derivative Liability          $185,170           $258,296 

 

A rollforward of the level 3 valuation financial instruments is as follows:

 

   Derivative
Liabilities
 
Balance at September 30, 2018  $258,296 
      
Charged to derivative expense on assignment and restatement of note   15,971 
Classified as initial debt discount on assignment and restatement of note   62,500 
Reduction of derivative recorded as gain on extinguishment upon conversions   (78,471)
Warrant exercises (partial)   (138,431)
Fair Value adjustment - warrants   65,898 
Fair Value adjustments – convertible note   (593)
Balance at March 31, 2019  $185,170 

 

The warrants were issued to a convertible note holder in November and December 2017 and initially determined to be equity instruments and recorded as note discount and as additional paid in capital. On June 4, 2018 the anti-dilutive provision of the warrants took effect and based on the new conversion formula management determined the warrant became a derivative liability and reclassified the Fair Value on June 4, 2018 from additional paid-in capital to derivative liability with fair market value changes recognized in operations for each reporting date. See Note 12.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents consist of liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase. There are no cash equivalents at the balance sheet dates.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Trade receivables are recorded at net realizable value consisting of the carrying amount less the allowance for doubtful accounts, as needed. Factors used to establish an allowance include the credit quality of the customer and whether the balance is significant. The Company may also use the direct write-off method to account for uncollectible accounts that are not received. Using the direct write-off method, trade receivable balances are written off to bad debt expense when an account balance is deemed to be uncollectible.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods, which are purchased directly from manufacturers. The Company utilizes a just in time type of inventory system where products are ordered from the vendor only when the Company has received sales order from its customers. Inventory is stated at the lower of cost and net realizable value on a first-in, first-out basis.

Property & Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost and depreciated over their estimated useful lives. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. When assets are retired or disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gains or losses are included in income in the year of disposition. The Company examines the possibility of decreases in the value of these assets when events or changes in circumstances reflect the fact that their recorded value may not be recoverable. Certain items classified as inventory during the second fiscal quarter of 2018 have been reclassified to Property and Equipment. These assets are fully operational drones used as demonstration units and were put into such use since acquisition. The units were all acquired during the year ended September 30, 2018 and each unit exceeds management’s threshold for capitalization of $2,000 for a single unit. The Company depreciates these demonstration units over a period of 3 years using an accelerated method. Depreciation expense was $5,193 and $0 for the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 respectively.

 

Goodwill and Intangible Assets

 

The Company’s goodwill and tradename assets are deemed to have indefinite lives and, accordingly, are not amortized, but are evaluated for impairment at least annually, but more often whenever changes in facts and circumstances occur which may indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The customer list was deemed to have a life of 4 years and is being amortized through September 2020.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Impairment is determined by comparing the carrying value of the long-lived assets to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to result from use of the assets and their ultimate disposition. In instances where impairment is determined to exist, the Company writes down the asset to its fair value.

 

Deferred Financing Costs

 

All unamortized deferred financing costs related to the Company’s borrowings are presented in the consolidated balance sheets as a direct deduction from the related debt. Amortization of these costs is reported as interest and financing costs included in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Effective October 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue From Contracts With Customers, which is effective for public business entities with annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. This new revenue recognition standard (new guidance) has a five step process: a) Determine whether a contract exists; b) Identify the performance obligations; c) Determine the transaction price; d) Allocate the transaction price; and e) Recognize revenue when (or as) performance obligations are satisfied. The impact of the Company’s initial application of ASC 606 did not have a material impact on its financial statements and disclosures and there was no cumulative effect of the adoption of ASC 606.

 

The Company sells a variety of products to government entities. The purchase orders received specifies each item and its manufacturer, the Company only needs to fulfill the performance obligation by shipping the specified items. No other performance obligation exist under the terms of the contracts. The Company recognizes revenue for the agreed upon sales price when the product is shipped to the customer, which satisfies the performance obligation.

 

The Company sells drones and related products manufactured by third parties to various parties. The Company also offers technical services related to drone utilization. The Company began offering insulation jackets for commercial and government facilities to insulate and monitor heating and cooling equipment. Contracts for drone related products and services and insulating jacket related sales will be evaluated using the five step process outline above. There have been no material sales for drone products and services for which full compliance with performance obligations has not been met. Sales of insulation jackets have not yet commenced. Upon significant sales for drone products and services and insulation jackets, the Company will disaggregate sales by these lines of business and within the lines of business to the extent that the product or service has different revenue recognition characteristics.

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718 – “Compensation –Stock Compensation “, which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. The Company utilizes the Black-Sholes option pricing model and uses the simplified method to determine expected term because of lack of sufficient exercise history. Additionally, effective October 1, 2016, the Company adopted the Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 (“ASU 2016-09”), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. Among other changes, ASU 2016-09 permits the election of an accounting policy for forfeitures of share-based payment awards, either to recognize forfeitures as they occur or estimate forfeitures over the vesting period of the award. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur and the cumulative impact of this change did not have any effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

As of October 1, 2018 the Company has early adopted ASU 2018-7 Compensation-Stock Compensation which conforms the accounting for non-employees to the accounting treatment for employees. The new standard replaces using a fair value as of each reporting date with use of the calculated fair value as of the grant date. The implementation of the standard provides for the use of the fair market value as of the adoption date, rather than using the value as of the original grant date. Therefore the values calculated and reported at September 30, 2018 become a proxy for the grant date value. The Company utilizes the Black-Sholes option pricing model and uses the simplified method to determine expected term because of lack of sufficient exercise history. There was no cumulative effect on the adoption date.

 

Shipping and Handling Costs

 

The Company has included freight-out as a component of cost of sales, which is not considered material for separate disclosure as it is typically less than 1% of cost of goods sold.

 

Convertible Notes with Fixed Rate Conversion Options

 

The Company may enter into convertible notes, some of which contain, predominantly, fixed rate conversion features, whereby the outstanding principal and accrued interest may be converted by the holder, into common shares at a fixed discount to the market price of the common stock at the time of conversion. This results in a fair value of the convertible note being equal to a fixed monetary amount. The Company records the convertible note liability at its fixed monetary amount by measuring and recording a premium, as applicable, on the Note date with a charge to interest expense in accordance with ASC 480 - “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Company has certain financial instruments that are derivatives or contain embedded derivatives. The Company evaluates all its financial instruments to determine if those contracts or any potential embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for in accordance with ASC 810-10-05-4 and 815-40.  This accounting treatment requires that the carrying amount of any derivatives be recorded at fair value at issuance and marked-to-market at each balance sheet date.  In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, as is the case with the Company, the change in the fair value during the period is recorded as either other income or expense. Upon conversion, exercise or repayment, the respective derivative liability is marked to fair value at the conversion, repayment or exercise date and then the related fair value amount is reclassified to other income or expense as part of gain or loss on extinguishment.

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss attributable to stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that shared in the earnings (loss) of the Company. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the loss available to stockholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period and dilutive potential shares outstanding unless such dilutive potential shares would result in anti-dilution. As of March 31, 2019, 18,305,000 options were outstanding of which 9,153,000 were exercisable, 299,942,688 warrants were outstanding and exercisable, and related party convertible debt and accrued interest totaling $963,975 was convertible into 1,606,624,171 shares of common stock. Additionally, as of March 31, 2019, the outstanding principal balance, including accrued interest of the third party convertible debt, totaled $6,288,591 and was convertible into 13,082,041,082 shares of common stock. It should be noted that contractually the limitations on these notes (and the related warrant) limit the number of shares converted to 826,694,060. The total dilutive potential shares of 15,006,912,941 exceed the number of common shares authorized and unissued. As of March 31, 2019 and 2018, potentially dilutive securities consisted of the following:

 

   March 31,
2019
   March 31,
2018
 
Stock options   18,305,000    44,351,200 
Warrants   299,942,688    600,000 
Related party convertible debt and accrued interest   1,606,624,171    9,398,132 
Third party convertible debt (including senior debt)   13,082,041,082    109,099,504 
Total   15,006,912,941    163,448,836 

 

Segment Reporting

 

The Company uses “the management approach” in determining reportable operating segments. The management approach considers the internal organization and reporting used by the Company’s chief operating decision maker for making operating decisions and assessing performance as the source for determining the Company’s reportable segments. The Company’s chief operating decision maker is the chief executive officer of the Company, who reviews operating results to make decisions about allocating resources and assessing performance for the entire Company. As of March 31, 2019, the Company did not report any segment information since the Company only generated sales from its subsidiary, Howco.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued a new accounting standard on leases. The new standard, among other changes, will require lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases. The lease liability will be measured at the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. The right-of-use asset will be measured at the lease liability amount, adjusted for lease prepayments, lease incentives received and the lessee’s initial direct costs (e.g. commissions). The new standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim reporting periods within those annual reporting periods. The adoption will require a modified retrospective approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest period presented. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial position and results of operations.

 

The Company does not believe that any other recently issued but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 10 - CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE AND ADVISORY FEE LIABILITIES

 

Senior Secured Credit Facility Note

 

Effective September 13, 2016 (“Effective Date”), the Company entered into a senior secured credit facility note (the “Agreement”) with an investment fund to provide capital for the acquisition of Howco. The Company can borrow up to $6,500,000, subject to lender approval, with an initial convertible promissory note at closing of $3,500,000 (the “Convertible Note”). The Convertible Note bears interest at a rate of 18% per annum, required monthly payments of $52,500 which is interest only starting on October 13, 2016 through February 13, 2017, and monthly payments, including interest and principal, of $298,341 starting on March 13, 2017 through maturity on March 13, 2018. Events of default are defined in the Agreement and Convertible Note. In the event of default the Convertible Note balance will bear interest at 25% per annum. In connection with this Agreement, the Company was obligated to pay additional advisory fees of $850,000 payable in the form of cash or common stock in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. The Company was also required to reserve 7,000,000 shares of common stock related to this transaction. The reserved shares will be released upon the satisfaction of the loan.

 

In the event the lender makes additional loans under the Agreement, the Company agreed to pay additional advisory fees under similar terms as the $850,000 fee. As of March 31, 2019, the Company had issued 539,204 shares of common stock in satisfaction of the $850,000 advisory fee in accordance with the terms of the agreement, such shares being issued in September 2016. The proceeds from the sale of the 539,204 shares were supposed to be applied towards the $850,000 advisory fee due. Based upon the value of the shares, at the time the lender sells the shares, the Company may be required to redeem unsold shares for the difference between the $850,000 and the lender’s sales proceeds. Accordingly, the $850,000 was reflected as a current liability through December 31, 2017. In January 2018, in connection with a settlement agreement (see below), the accrued advisory fee was reclassified to the principal balance of the replacement Convertible Note.

The Convertible Note is only convertible upon default or mutual agreement by both parties at a conversion rate of 85% of the lowest of the daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the 5 business days immediately prior to the conversion date. At any time and from time to time while this Note is outstanding, but only upon: (i) the occurrence of an Event of Default under any of the Loan Documents; or (ii) mutual agreement between the Company and the Holder, this Note may be, at the sole option of the Holder, convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth below. At any time while this Note is outstanding, but only upon: (i) the occurrence of an Event of Default under any of the Loan Documents; or (ii) mutual agreement between the Company and the Holder, the Holder may convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal, accrued and unpaid interest, and any other sums due and payable hereunder or under any other Loan Documents (such total amount, the “Conversion Amount”) into shares of common stock of the Company (the “Conversion Shares”) at a price equal to: (i) the Conversion Amount (the numerator); divided by (ii) 85% of the lowest of the daily volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the five business days immediately prior to the conversion date, which price shall be indicated in the conversion notice (the denominator) (the “Conversion Price”). Upon liquidation by the Holder of Conversion Shares issued pursuant to a Conversion Notice, provided that the Holder realizes a net amount from such liquidation equal to less than the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant conversion notice (such net realized amount, the “Realized Amount”), the Company shall issue to the Holder additional shares of the Company’s common stock equal to: (i) the Conversion Amount specified in the relevant conversion notice; minus (ii) the Realized Amount, as evidenced by a reconciliation statement from the Holder (a “Sale Reconciliation”) showing the Realized Amount from the sale of the Conversion Shares; divided by (iii) the average volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the five business days immediately prior to the date upon which the Holder delivers notice (the “Make-Whole Notice”) to the Company that such additional shares are requested by the Holder (such number of additional shares to be issued, the “Make-Whole Shares”).

 

Once a default occurs the Convertible Note will be accounted for as stock settled debt at its fixed monetary value and any shares issued upon conversion are also subject to a make whole provision similar to that described above for the $850,000 advisory fee payable. On March 13, 2017 the Company defaulted on the monthly principal and interest payment of $298,341. Due to this default, as of June 30, 2017, the Company has accounted for the embedded conversion option as stock settled debt and recorded a debt premium of $617,647 with a charge to interest expense, and the interest rate increased to 25% (default rate).

 

On March 28, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement with the above senior secured credit facility lender to receive a range of advisory services for a total of $1,200,000 with no definitive terms or length of service which was expensed in fiscal 2017 and had been recorded as an accrued liability – advisory fees through December 31, 2017. In connection with the settlement agreement discussed below, in January 2018, the advisory services fee payable was reclassified to the principal balance of the replacement Convertible Note.

 

On January 3, 2018, the Company entered into a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) and replacement note agreements with the investment fund related to a senior secured credit facility note dated September 13, 2016. On the effective date of the Settlement Agreement, all amounts owed to the investment fund aggregated $5,788,642 and consisted of a convertible promissory note of $3,500,000, accrued interest payable of $238,642, and accrued advisory fees payable of $2,050,000. Additionally, on the effective date, the amount due of $5,788,642 was split and apportioned into 2 separate and distinct replacement notes (“Replacement Note A” and “Replacement Note B”). Replacement Note A shall have a principal amount of $1,000,000 and Replacement Note B shall have a principal balance of $4,788,642, both of which shall be and remained secured by the original security agreements, the pledge agreements, the guarantee agreement and other applicable loan documents and both shall bear interest at 18% per annum. The default was not waived by this settlement agreement. The Company originally recorded a premium on stock settled debt of $617,647 on the $3,500,000, and subsequent to the settlement agreement recorded an additional premium on stock settled debt of $403,878 on the additional $2,288,642. The interest rate was amended to 12% effective June 12, 2018.

 

The Credit Agreement is hereby amended such that the Maturity Date is extended to January 13, 2019 (the “Extended Maturity Date”) for replacement Note B, while the Note A maturity date remained at March 13, 2018 but was due as of March 2017 due to the principal and interest payment default discussed above. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, all Obligations owing by the Company and all other Credit Parties under the Credit Agreement, First Replacement Note B, and all other Loan Documents shall be paid in full by the Extended Maturity Date as follows: $52,500 per month from January 13, 2018 to December 13, 2018 and the remaining principal and accrued interest on January 13, 2019. Interest payments made since the amendment have totaled $283,440 and are therefore not in accord with that amendment. However, TCA has received payments under the 3(a)(10) settlement (below) totaling $578,420 from January 13, 2018to March 31, 2019.

 

On October 30, 2018, TCA the Company’s senior lender amended its credit facility which had been restructured in January 2018 when fees due for advisory and other matters along with accrued but unpaid interest were capitalized and separated into two notes, Note A having $1,000,000 principal and Note B having $4,788,642 both having the same maturity terms, interest rates and conversion rights. Under the current amendment total amounts outstanding under the notes along with accrued interest of $537,643 has been capitalized with the principal amount due of $6,018,192. The restated note has the same conversion price discount and therefore continues to be stock settled debt under ASC 480, an additional $94,878 was charged to interest with a credit to debt premium. The new note accrues interest on the principal balance at 12% per annum, includes amortization to the new maturity of December 15, 2020. The amortization payments credited toward the principal amount and accrued interest vary and include payments made under the 3(a)(10) settlement agreement with a third party related to Note A. Economically the total principal and accrued interest outstanding remain unchanged as reported in the consolidated balance sheet. All other terms including conversion rights and a make-whole provision in the case of a conversion shortfall remain the same as stated in the footnotes above. At March 31, 2019 the principal of the Note B portion was $5,326,285. During the six months ended March 31, 2019, the Company paid $115,000 and Livingston Asset Management (under the 3(a)(10) settlement) remitted $270,320 to TCA. Accrued but unpaid interest was $180,518, at March 31, 2019. Note A principal subject to the 3(a)(10) court order was $421,587.

On November 15, 2017, the Company executed a Liability Purchase Term Sheet with Livingston Asset Management (“Livingston”) under which Livingston agreed to purchase up to $10,000,000 that the Company owes to its creditors through direct purchase of the debts from the Company’s creditors in return for a convertible note issued by the Company in the principal amount of $50,000 bearing interest of 10% per year to cover certain legal fees and other expenses of Livingston. The note matures in six months and is convertible into shares of our common stock at a 30% reduction off the lowest closing bid price for 20 trading days prior to the date of conversion. Livingston has the right to retain 30% of any negotiated reduction off the face amount of the liability the Company owes to such creditors. The Company has accounted for the convertible promissory note as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $21,428 with a charge to interest expense. The note and accrued interest were fully converted as of September 30, 2018 for 18,162,608 common shares. Debt premium of $21,428 was charged to additional paid in capital.

 

On January 30, 2018 pursuant to the Liability Purchase Term Sheet, the TCA Replacement Note A in the principal amount of $1,000,000 was purchased by Livingston Asset Management LLC (“Livingston”) from the original lender. Principal of Replacement Note A is due to Livingston with all then accrued but unpaid interest due to the original lender. In accordance with the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Court was advised of Company’s intention to rely upon the exception to registration set forth in Section 3(a)(l0) of the Securities Act to support the issuance of its common shares and the Court held a fairness hearing regarding the issuance (the “Hearing”) on March 12, 2018. Following entry of an Order by the Court which occurred on March 12, 2018, in settlement of the claims, the Company shall issue and deliver to Livingston shares of its common stock (the “Settlement Shares”) in one or more tranches as necessary, and subject to adjustment and ownership limitations as set forth in the Settlement Agreement, sufficient to generate proceeds such that the aggregate Remittance Amount equals the Claim Amount. The Company will issue free trading shares of its common stock under section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act to Livingston in the amount of such judgment in a series of tranches so that Livingston will not own more than 9.99% of our outstanding shares per tranche. The parties reasonably estimate that the fair market value of the Settlement Shares to be received by Livingston is equal to approximately $1,666,667 which is based on a discount of 40%.

 

As of March 31, 2019, there have been eleven issuances under section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act totaling 566,838,000 shares, which have been recorded at par value with an equal charge to additional paid-in capital. The value originally recorded as a liability remains in the convertible note balance, until these shares have been sold and reported to the Company by the lender as part of the Make-Whole provision at which time the proceeds value of such shares are reclassified to additional paid-in capital. During the six months ended March 31, 2019, proceeds of $270,320 were remitted to TCA by Livingston and applied to reduce the liability with corresponding credits to additional paid in capital. $180,618 of debt premium was credited to additional paid in capital in conjunction with the payments to TCA. At March 31, 2019 the balance of $421,587 along with related debt premium of $281,054 are included in convertible notes payable on the balance sheet.

 

On March 7, 2018 the Company entered into a placement agent and advisory agreement with Scottsdale Capital Advisors in connection with the Livingston liability purchase term sheet executed on November 15, 2017. The placement agent services fee amounted to $15,000 payable to Scottsdale Capital Advisors in the form of a convertible note. The note matures six months from the date of issuance and shall accrue interest at the rate of 10% per annum. The $15,000 note is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a discount of 30% of the low closing bid price for the twenty trading days prior to the conversion and is not subject to any registration rights. The Company has accounted for the convertible promissory note as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $6,429 with a charge to interest expense. The note has not been converted and the principal balance is $15,000 with $2,037 of accrued interest at March 31, 2019.

 

Other Convertible Debt

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-11 Earnings Per Share (Topic 260) Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480) Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) (“ASU 2017-11”), which changes the classification analysis of certain equity-linked financial instruments (or embedded features) with down round features. When determining whether certain financial instruments should be classified as liabilities or equity instruments, a down round feature no longer precludes equity classification when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. ASU 2017-11 also clarifies existing disclosure requirements for equity-classified instruments. As a result, a freestanding equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded conversion option) no longer would be accounted for as a derivative liability at fair value as a result of the existence of a down round feature. For freestanding equity classified financial instruments, ASU 2017-11 requires entities that present earnings per share (EPS) in accordance with ASC Topic 260 to recognize the effect of the down round feature when it is triggered. That effect is treated as a dividend and as a reduction of income available to common shareholders in basic EPS. For the Company, ASU 2017-11 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company adopted this standard on October 1, 2017.

 

On November 9, 2017, the Company received a first tranche payment of $75,500 under the terms of a Securities Purchase Agreement dated October 25, 2017, with Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (“Crown Bridge”) under which the Company issued to Crown Bridge a convertible note in the principal amount of $105,000 and a five-year warrant to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.35 as a commitment fee which is equal to the product of one-third of the face value of each tranche divided by $0.35. Under the terms of the note Crown Bridge was to receive “right of first refusal” for any subsequent loans or notes to fund the Company. The Company violated this covenant when funding was received from other sources without offering Crown Bridge the opportunity to participate. On December 20, 2017 the Company cured this covenant violation by issuing 200,000 additional warrants have the same exercise price and terms of the original warrants. The warrants have full ratchet price protection and cashless exercise rights.

The convertible note (the “Note”) issued to Crown Bridge in the principal amount of $105,000, has an original issue discount of $10,500 and issue costs of $19,000 both of which are recorded as debt discount along with the warrant relative fair value of $12,507 for the original 100,000 warrants and $31,529 for the penalty warrants to be amortized over the twelve month term of this tranche, bears interest of 10% (12% default rate) per annum, and has a maturity date of 12 months from the date of each tranche of payments under the Note with future tranches being at the discretion of Crown Bridge. The conversion rate for any conversion of unpaid principal and interest under the Notes is at a 35% discount to the lowest market price of the shares of the Company’s common stock within a 20 day trading period prior to the date of conversion to which an additional 10% discount will be added if the conversion price of the Company’s common stock is less than $0.05 per share and no shares of the Company’s common stock can be issued to the extent Crown Bridge would own more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock and the conversion shares contain piggy-back registration rights. The Note is subject to customary default provisions including an event of default if the bid price of the Company’s common stock is less than its par value of $.0001 per share. The Company is entitled to prepay the Note between 30 days after its issuance until 180 days from its issuance at amounts that increase from 112% of the prepayment amount to 137% of the prepayment amount depending on the length of time when prepayments are made. The Company has accounted for the convertible promissory note as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $56,538 with a charge to interest expense. As of September 30, 2018 the note holder fully converted principal and accrued interest into common shares. The debt premium on stock settled debt was fully recognized as additional paid in capital.

 

On March 1, 2019, the Company received a second tranche advance under the Crown Bridge Partners, LLC for principal amount of $35,000, including covered fees and original issue discount totaling $5,000. Under the conversion terms of the above note, the holder is entitled to a 35% discount plus an additional 10% discount based on the conversion rights of certain other note holders. Therefore a discount of 45% is assumed for any conversions of this note tranche. The Company has accounted for the convertible promissory note as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $28,636 with a charge to interest expense. The original issue discount and fees charged were treated as debt discount and will be amortized to financing expenses over the term of the note. Accrued interest was $432, and unamortized debt discount was $4,583, at March 31, 2019.

 

On June 1, 2018 the Company entered into a consulting and services arrangement with Livingston Asset Management. The arrangement provides for financial management services including accounting and related periodic reporting among other advisory services. Under the agreement the Company will issue to Livingston Asset Management Convertible Fee Notes having principal of $12,500, interest of 10% per annum, maturity of six or seven months. The notes are convertible into common shares at a discount of 50% to the lowest bid price in the 30 trading days immediately preceding the notice of conversion. The Company has accounted for the convertible promissory note as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $12,500 with a charge to interest expense for each note. As of March 31, 2019 the following notes had been issued, of which the June1, July 1 August 1, and September 1, 2018 notes were fully converted by March 31, 2019:

 

June 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing December 31, 2018 – fully converted;

 

July 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing January 31, 2019 – fully converted;

 

August 1, 2018, $12,500 principal maturing January 31, 2019 fully converted;

 

September 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing February 28, 2019; fully converted;

 

October 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing March 31, 2019;

 

November 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing April 30, 2019;

 

December 1, 2018, $12,500 principal, maturing May 31, 2019;

March 1, 2019, $12,500 principal, maturing August 31, 2019.

 

The notes were charged to professional fees for each corresponding service month. The Company has accounted for each of the Convertible Fee Notes as stock settled debt under ASC 480 and recorded a debt premium of $12,500 each with a charge to interest expense.

 

On August 29, 2018 the Company entered into an agreement with a legal firm to provide securities related and other legal services. Under the agreement the Company will issue convertible notes with varying principal amounts for services. The first note was issued on August 29, 2018 for $6,000, interest of 12%, and maturity date of February 28, 2018. The conversion feature allows for conversion into common shares at the lesser of: a) 70% of the share price on the date of the note; or b) 50% of the lowest bid price during the 30 trading days preceding the date of the notice of conversion. In connection with the issuance of this Note, the Company determined that the terms of the Note contain a conversion formula that caused variations in the conversion price resulting in the treatment of the conversion option as a bifurcated derivative to be accounted for at fair value. Accordingly, under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in an Entity’s Own Stock”, the embedded conversion option contained in the convertible instruments were accounted for as derivative liabilities at the date of issuance and shall be adjusted to fair value through earnings at each reporting date. The fair value of the embedded conversion option derivatives were determined using the Binomial valuation model. $10,435 was recognized as derivative liability with $6,000 charged to debt discount and $4,035 charged to derivative expense on issuance. The debt discount of $6,000 will be amortized to interest expense to the maturity date of the note. At March 31, 2019 the derivative fair value was determined to have decreased to $8,881. As the note reached its maturity date no further fair value adjustments will be recorded. For the six months ended March 31, 2019, $5,000, balance of the debt discount was charged to interest expense and debt discount balances was $0.

On October 23, 2018 Porta Pellex assigned $62,500 of the remaining principal balance of its note to Jefferson Street Capital LLC along with $7,500 of accrued interest. The assigned portion of the note was restated to provide for conversion of interest and principal into common shares at the lower of: 50% discount to the lowest bid price over the 20 trading days prior to conversion notification; or 50% of the lowest bid price during the 20 trading days prior to the closing date of the related assignment. This modification was treated as a debt extinguishment. In connection with the issuance of this Note, the Company determined that the terms of the modified Note contain a conversion formula that caused variations in the conversion price resulting in the treatment of the conversion option as a bifurcated derivative to be accounted for at fair value. Accordingly, under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in an Entity’s Own Stock”, the embedded conversion option contained in the convertible instruments were accounted for as derivative liabilities at the date of assignment and shall be adjusted to fair value through earnings at each reporting date. The fair value of the embedded conversion option derivatives were determined using the Binomial valuation model.

On October 23, 2018 Porta Pellex assigned $62,500 of the remaining principal balance of its note to Jefferson Street Capital LLC along with $7,500 of accrued interest.

This modification was treated as a debt extinguishment. In connection with the issuance of this Note, the Company determined that the terms of the modified Note contain a conversion formula that caused variations in the conversion price resulting in the treatment of the conversion option as a bifurcated derivative to be accounted for at fair value. Accordingly, under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in an Entity’s Own Stock”, the embedded conversion option contained in the convertible instruments were accounted for as derivative liabilities at the date of assignment and shall be adjusted to fair value through earnings at each reporting date. The fair value of the embedded conversion option derivatives were determined using the Binomial valuation model. In connection with this Note, on the initial measurement date of October 23, 2018, the fair values of the embedded conversion option derivative of $78,471 was recorded as derivative liabilities, $15,971 was charged to current period operations as initial derivative expense, and $62,500 was recorded as a debt discount to be amortized into interest expense over the holding period of the restated note. The assigned note was fully converted for common shares by December 5, 2018.

Warrants

 

On September 9, 2016, 500,000 5-year warrants exercisable at $0.01 per share were issued as part of the consideration for the Howco acquisition. These warrants were valued at aggregate of $180,000.

 

On November 9, 2017, the Company received a first tranche payment of $75,500 under the terms of a Securities Purchase Agreement dated October 25, 2017, with Crown Bridge under which the Company issued to Crown Bridge a convertible note in the principal amount of $105,000 and a five-year warrant to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.35 as a commitment fee which is equal to the product of one-third of the face value of each tranche divided by $0.35. On December 20, 2017 an additional 200,000 warrants were issued as a penalty and in order to entice Crown Bridge to waive its right of first refusal to provide additional financing under the terms of their convertible note. A debt discount of $44,036 was recorded for the relative fair market value of the total 300,000 warrants and amortized to interest expense as of September 30, 2018. The warrants have full ratchet price protection and cashless exercise rights (See Note10). The warrant includes an anti-dilution clause that was triggered on June 4, 2018. On June 4, 2018 an unrelated convertible note holder became entitled to convert their note into common shares at a 60% discount to the stock’s market price. The anti-dilution provision trigger entitled Crown Bridge to exercise its warrants under a formula that increased the number of common shares to 31,250,000 at a price of $.0036 per share. Due to the fact that the number of shares and exercise price can change due to market changes in the price of the common stock the Company has concluded to treat the warrants as derivatives and to revalue that derivative at each reporting date. Therefore a derivative liability of $261,484 with a charge to additional paid in capital was recorded on June 4, 2018. As of March 31, 2019, the warrant was revalued and the warrant holder is entitled to exercise its warrants for 299,942,688 common shares and the related derivative liability is $176,853.

Legal Matters

 

On February 6, 2018 the Company sent a letter to the previous owners of Howco Distributing Co. (“Howco”) alleging that they made certain financial misrepresentations under the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement by which the Company acquired control of Howco during 2016. The Company claimed that the previous owners took excessive amounts of cash from the business prior to the close of the merger. On March 13, 2018 the Company filed a lawsuit against the previous owners by issuing a summons. On April 12, 2018, the Company received the Defendants’ answer. The Company and the previous owners are in discussion to settle the matter as of March 31, 2019.

 

In connection with the merger in fiscal 2016, with Texas Wyoming Drilling, Inc., a vendor has a claim for unpaid bills of approximately $75,000 against the Company. The Company and its legal counsel believe the Company is not liable for the claim pursuant to its indemnification clause in the merger agreement.

 

On February 11, 2019, the Supreme Court of the State of New York issued a summons to the former CFO of the Company, to appear before the court to answer the Company’s complaint seeking payment under a personal guarantee of the defendant to provide half of any compensation paid to the former Chief Strategy Officer. The Company is seeking $300,000 from the defendant relating to the November 27, 2018 settlement agreement with the former Chief Strategy Office for $600,000. The former CFO has responded to the suit and is requesting arbitration over this matter as well as the compensation. (see Note 7and 14)

 

Settlements

 

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company received demands for non-payment of five months of rent for its New York location. In July 2017, the Company vacated the New York premises. Subsequent to June 30, 2017, a lawsuit was filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York for an alleged breach of a Service Agreement for approximately $63,000 in connection with the lease the Company entered into for its former office space in New York. As of September 30, 2017, the Company accrued into accounts payable approximately $63,000 pursuant to ASC 420-10-30 “Cost to Terminate an Operating Lease”. In October 2017, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with the New York lease landlord and paid $30,000 in full settlement and recorded a settlement gain of $33,361.

 

On August 9, 2017, a lawsuit was filed by an investor relations firm against the Company in the Supreme Court, Westchester County (Index No. 61772/2017). The complaint alleged two causes of action, one for goods and services furnished and one for an account stated, in the amount of $74,325. The plaintiff obtained a default judgment. The Company has filed an Order to Show Cause to vacate the default judgment on the grounds that the service of the complaint was invalid. The court granted the Company’s Order to Show Cause on December 19, 2017 and set the hearing on the Order to Show Cause for January 12, 2018. At December 31, 2017, $68,544 was accrued in accounts payable. On February 14, 2018 the Company entered into a stipulation agreement with the investor relations firm which settled the amount due at $20,000 if payment was made by February 21, 2018. The lump sum payment was made on February 16, 2018 and a gain on extinguishment of debt of $48,544 was recorded.

 

On January 29, 2018, the Company entered into a settlement agreement and mutual release with a vendor who had provided public relations and other consulting services whereby the Company shall pay to this vendor an aggregate amount of $60,000 of which $30,000 was paid on February 2, 2018. Additionally, the Company shall pay ten monthly payments of $3,000 per month beginning on February 29, 2018. Additionally, the vendor returned 400,000 common shares of the Company’s common stock which will be cancelled upon satisfaction of the liability. The liability is recorded at $21,000 as of March 31, 2019. The Company is in discussion with the vendor to address the past due amounts.

 

On November 13, 2018 the Company and a vendor agreed to settle $161,700 in past due professional fees for a convertible note in the amount of $90,000. The note bears interest at 5% and matures in July 2019 and has a fixed discount conversion feature. The accrued balance as accounts payable of $71,700, was recognized a gain on debt extinguishment following receipt of the waiver and release from the vendor.

 

During 2016, Company entered into an employment agreement with the Company’s former Chief Strategy Officer which provided for annual base compensation of $400,000 for a period of three years and provided for other additional benefits as defined in the agreement including a signing bonus of $100,000 payable during the first year of employment. During November 2018 the Company reached an agreement and executed a related stipulation and payment terms agreement stemming from the legal action by the former Chief Strategy Officer for improper termination. The plaintiff agreed to accept $600,000 in payments. The first scheduled payment of $200,000 was made on December 20, 2018 in accordance with the settlement terms. Twelve monthly payments of approximately $33,333 are due starting on January 15, through December 15, 2019.

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

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information and Factors That May Affect Future Results

 

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements regarding our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company’s future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other written and oral statements that we make from time to time contain such forward-looking statements that set out anticipated results based on management’s plans and assumptions regarding future events or performance. We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will” and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, future performance or results of current and anticipated sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings, and financial results. Factors that could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially are set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of our annual report on the amended Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, as filed with the SEC on February 7, 2019.

 

We caution that these factors could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements we make and that investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of such factors. Further, we cannot assess the impact of each such factor on our results of operations or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes that appear elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

 

Overview

 

Bantek, Inc. is a UAV and related services and technology company that intends to engage in, testing and distribution, of advanced low altitude UAV systems, services and products. Bantek, Inc. also provides product procurement, distribution, and logistics services through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Howco Distributing Co., to the United States Department of Defense and Defense Logistics Agency. The Company has operations Vancouver, Washington. The Company continues to seek strategic acquisitions and partnerships with UAV firms that offer superior technologies in high-growth markets, as well as acquisitions and partnerships with firms that have complementary technologies and infrastructure.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had $1,342,380 in current assets, including $94,735 in cash, compared to $2,451,721 in current assets, including $108,446 in cash, at September 30, 2018. Current liabilities at March 31, 2019, totaled $7,474,742 compared to $14,621,838 at September 30, 2018. The decrease in current assets from September 30, 2018 to March 31, 2019 is primarily due to decreases in cash of $13,711, accounts receivable of $613,321, inventory of $380,414, and prepaid expenses of $101,895. The decrease in current liabilities from September 30, 2018 to March 31, 2019 is primarily due to the decrease in convertible notes payable of approximately $5,601,000, primarily due to restructuring of TCA note terms to long term, decreases in accounts payable of approximately $844,600, decrease of accrued expenses of $777,600, decreases in related party convertible notes of $27,670 as the note terms were amended extending the maturity, decrease in note payable of $125,000, which was liquidated and a decrease in derivative liabilities of approximately $73,100 largely due to warrant exercises, slightly offset by $90,000 in current portion of related party debt and an increase in settlements payable of approximately $213,500. While we have revenues as of this date, no significant UAV revenues are anticipated until we have implemented our full plan of operations, specifically, initiating sales campaigns for our UAV platforms. We must raise cash to implement our strategy to grow and expand per our business plan. We anticipate over the next 12 months the cost of being a reporting public company will be approximately $250,000.

 

If we cannot raise additional proceeds via a private placement of our equity or debt securities, or secure more loans, we would be required to cease business operations. As a result, investors would lose all of their investment. Under the terms of our credit agreement with TCA, all potential new investments must first be reviewed and approved by TCA, which may constrain our options for new fundraising.

  

We anticipate our short-term liquidity needs to be approximately $6 million which will be used to settle our existing current liabilities and we expect gross profits of approximately $1,500,000. To meet these needs we intend to complete equity financing and refinance or restructure certain existing liabilities. Once this is completed, and we implement our sales and marketing plan to sell UAV products, we anticipate minimal long-term liquidity needs which we expect to meet through equity financing or short-term borrowings.  

 

26

 

   

Additionally, we will have to meet all the financial disclosure and reporting requirements associated with being a publicly reporting company. Our management will have to spend additional time on policies and procedures to make sure it is compliant with various regulatory requirements, especially that of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This additional corporate governance time required of management could limit the amount of time management has to implement the business plan and may impede the speed of its operations.

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s cash flows provided by (used in) operating, investing and financing activities:

Results of Operations

 

Three months Ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

 

We generated sales of $2,659,917 and $4,602,343 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, a decrease of $1,942,426, or 42%. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, we reported cost of goods sold of $2,372,555 and $3,946,076, respectively, a decrease of $1,573,521, or 40%. The decrease in sales and cost of goods sold for the 2019 period as compared to the 2018 period is due to lower sales in current period and to lesser extent by our efforts to increase gross margins by reducing sales of lower margin products. While management’s focus on increasing gross margins has impacted sales levels, we believe that the Company is situated to capture greater sales without incurring significant fixed costs through three initiatives. Efforts are underway to market an expanded suite of Howco product lines on the east coast. We are expanding product offerings with high tech tactical gear to regular federal government entities (Howco lines of business), adding the high tech tactical gear to our traditional drone assemblies along with newer more rapidly deployed drones focused on municipalities and lastly we are adding lighting maintenance services under the thermal jackets initiative for large institutional clients. All of these initiatives focus on current market segments to synergistically leverage our capabilities.

 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, we reported selling, general, and administrative expenses of $811,703 as compared to $650,032, an increase of $161,671, or 25%. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, selling, general, and administrative expenses consisted of the following:

 

   For the Three
Months ended
   For the Three

   March 31,

   March 31,

Compensation and related benefits  $380,871   $492,478 
Professional fees   321,414    (46,151)
Other selling, general and administrative expenses   109,418    203,705 
Total selling, general and administrative expenses  $811,703   $650,032 

 

The increase in selling, general, and administrative costs for the 2019 period as compared to the 2018 period was due increase in professional fees and in other selling, general and administrative partially offset by lower compensation related costs due to a reduction in employees.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, amortization and depreciation expense amounted to $69,377 and $66,248, respectively, and related to the depreciation of demonstration drones and amortization of intangible assets. In the 2019 period depreciation expense was $2,065.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, other income (expense) amounted to ($423,152) and ($1,661,222), respectively, a decrease of $1,238,070, or 75%. The decrease was attributable to a decrease in interest and financing costs of $1,252,418, or 74%, due to a decrease in the interest rate for the senior secured convertible note, and the lower amortization of related discounts and accretion of premiums. An increase in debt extinguishment gains of $71,680 also benefited the 2019 period costs. Derivative expenses rose from ($19,680) in the 2018 period to ($57,164) in the current period due to the triggering of the anti-dilution clause of the warrant issued to Crown Bridge Partners.

 

As a result, we reported net losses of $1,016,870, or $0.0007 per common share, and $1,721,235, or $0.04 per common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Six months Ended March 31, 2019 and 2018

  

We generated sales of $6,412,375 and $9,035,403 for the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, a decrease of $2,623,028, or 29%. For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, we reported cost of goods sold of $5,750,094 and $8,087,969, respectively, a decrease of $2,337,875, or 29%. The decrease in sales and cost of goods sold for the 2019 period as compared to the 2018 period is due to us ceasing our sales of certain products from certain vendors. While management’s focus on increasing gross margins has impacted sales levels, we believe that the Company is situated to capture greater sales without incurring significant fixed costs through three initiatives. Efforts are underway to market an expanded suite of Howco product lines on the east coast. We are expanding product offerings with high tech tactical gear to regular federal government entities (Howco lines of business), adding the high tech tactical gear to our traditional drone assemblies along with newer more rapidly deployed drones focused on municipalities and lastly we are adding lighting maintenance services under the thermal jackets initiative for large institutional clients. All of these initiatives focus on current market segments to synergistically leverage our capabilities.

 

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, we reported selling, general, and administrative expenses of $1,680,641 as compared to $1,470,794, an increase of $209,847, or 14%. For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, selling, general, and administrative expenses consisted of the following:

 

  

For the Six

Months ended

  

For the Six

Months ended

 
   March 31, 2018   March 31, 2018 
Compensation and related benefits  $756,448   $973,095 
Professional fees   674,678    177,072 
Other selling, general and administrative expenses   249,515    320,627 
Total selling, general and administrative expenses  $1,680,641   $1,470,794 

 

The increase in selling, general, and administrative costs for the 2019 period as compared to the 2018 period was due to an increase in professional fees with a partially offset due to a reduction in compensation costs, and a reduction in other selling, general and administrative due to changes in staff mix. Certain professional staff positions were placed with 3rd party professional resources. For the six months ended March 31, 2019, professional fees amounted to $674,678 and compared to $177,072, an increase of $497,606. Professional fees increased due to higher legal charges incurred for suit by a former officer, increased fees for accounting services and general business consulting. Additionally, during the six months ended March 31, 2018, we recorded a reversal of stock-based consulting fee of $160,279 caused by the revaluation of the fair value of non-employee options in accordance with ASC 505-50 – “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees.  

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, depreciation and amortization expense amounted to $137,691 and $132,498, respectively, and related to the amortization of intangible assets. In the 2019 period depreciation expense was $5,193.

 

For the six months ended March 31, 2019, other income (expense) amounted to ($926,361) and ($2,365,950), respectively, a decrease of $1,439,589 or 61%. The decrease was attributable to lower interest and financing costs of $1,507,442, or 63%, primarily due to higher initial financing cost in the 2018 period including the amortization of related discounts and accretion of premiums.

 

As a result, we reported a net loss of $2,082,412 or $0.0018 per common share, and $3,021,808, or $0.07 per common share, for the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the six months ended March 31, 2019, the Company has incurred a net loss of $2,082,412 and used cash in operations of $746,317. The working capital deficit, stockholders’ deficit and accumulated deficit was $6,132,362, $10,090,060 and $21,713,704, respectively, at March 31, 2019. Furthermore, on April 13, 2017 the Company received a default notice on its payment obligations under the senior secured credit facility agreement (see Note 10), defaulted on its Note Payable – Seller in September 2017, and as of March 31, 2019 has received demands for payment of past due amounts from several consultants and service providers. It is management’s opinion that these matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the issuance date of this report. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon management’s ability to further implement its business plan and raise additional capital as needed from the sales of stock or debt. The Company has been implementing cost-cutting measures and restructuring or setting up payment plans with vendors and service providers and plans to raise equity through a private placement, and has restructured its secured obligations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be required should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles 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 periods.

  

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our financial statements. In general, management’s estimates are based on historical experience, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management. These estimates are based on Management’s historical industry experience and not the company’s historical experience.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Trade receivables are recorded at net realizable value consisting of the carrying amount less the allowance for doubtful accounts, as needed. Factors used to establish an allowance include the credit quality of the customer and whether the balance is significant. The Company may also use the direct write-off method to account for uncollectible accounts that are not received. Using the direct write-off method, trade receivable balances are written off to bad debt expense when an account balance is deemed to be uncollectible.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consists of finished goods, which are purchased directly from manufacturers. The Company utilizes a just in time type of inventory system where products are ordered from the vender only when the Company has received sales order from its customers. Inventory is stated at the lower of cost and net realizable value on a first-in, first-out basis.

 

Goodwill and Intangible Assets

 

The Company’s goodwill and tradename assets are deemed to have indefinite lives and, accordingly, are not amortized, but are evaluated for impairment at least annually, but more often whenever changes in facts and circumstances occur which may indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The customer list was deemed to have a life of four years and will be amortized through September 2020.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Impairment is measured by comparing the carrying value of the long-lived assets to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to result from use of the assets and their ultimate disposition. In instances where impairment is determined to exist, the Company writes down the asset to its fair value based on the present value of estimated future cash flows.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue from sales is recognized when performance obligations have been satisfied which is generally upon shipment of product to the customer. Provisions for returns and allowances are recorded in the period the sales occur. Payments received from customers prior to shipment of the product to them, are recorded as customer deposit liabilities.  

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The cost of all share-based payments to employees and non-employees, including grants of restricted stock and stock options, is recognized in the consolidated financial statements based on their fair values measured at the grant date, or the date of any later modification, over the requisite service period. The Company recognizes compensation cost for unvested stock awards on a straight-line basis over the requisite vesting period.

 

Convertible Notes with Fixed Rate Conversion Options

 

We may enter into convertible notes, some of which contain, predominantly, fixed rate conversion features, whereby the outstanding principal and accrued interest may be converted by the holder, into common shares at a fixed discount to the market price of the common stock at the time of conversion. This results in a fair value of the convertible note being equal to a fixed monetary amount. We record the convertible note liability at its fixed monetary amount by measuring and recording a premium, as applicable, on the Note date with a charge to interest expense in accordance with ASC 480 - “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”.

  

29

 

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Company has certain financial instruments that contain embedded derivatives. The Company evaluates all its financial instruments to determine if those contracts or any potential embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for in accordance with ASC 810-10-05-4 and 815-40.  This accounting treatment requires that the carrying amount of any embedded derivatives be recorded at fair value at issuance and marked-to-market at each balance sheet date. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, as is the case with the Company, the change in the fair value during the period is recorded as either income or expense. Upon conversion, exercise or repayment, the respective derivative liability is marked to fair value at the conversion, repayment or exercise date and then the related fair value amount is reclassified to income or expense as part of gain or loss on extinguishment. 

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss attributable to stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that shared in the earnings (loss) of the Company. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the loss available to stockholders by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period and dilutive potential shares outstanding unless such dilutive potential shares would result in anti-dilution. Pursuant to ASB 260, contingent shares issued under a Securities purchase agreement are not considered outstanding and are not included in basic net loss per shares or as potentially dilutive shares in calculating the diluted EPS.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

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

   

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable.

  

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure controls and procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as that term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e), promulgated by the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that as of March 31, 2019, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

The ineffectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures was due to the following material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. Currently there are no staff with knowledge of Generally Accepted Accounting Procedures on site at Howco. The current procedures and controls need to be improved for inventory accounting, period end financial closing and account analysis. Since the resignation of our former CFO in July 2017, we have not had a qualified in-house financial accounting expert to maintain our parent company and consolidation level books and records. To remediate this situation we have engaged outsourced accountants. On January 5, 2019 Jeffrey L. Garon was appointed as CFO.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting

 

Other than the appointment of a new CFO on January 5, 2019, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS  

 

In connection with the merger with Texas Wyoming Drilling, Inc., a vendor has a claim for unpaid bills of approximately $75,000 against the company. The Company and its legal counsel believe the Company is not liable for the claim pursuant to its indemnification clause in the merger agreement.

 

In response to the Complaint we filed July 12, 2017 against a former employee in the United States District Court for the Central District of California (Case No. 2:17-cv-05124) seeking damages, the former employee filed an answer and counterclaim on July 31, 2017 seeking damages in the amount of $900,000 based on allegations of breach of the employment agreement by Bantek, Inc. as well as additional amounts based on alleged libel and a demand for punitive damages. We entered into a settlement agreement on November 27, 2018, whereby the Company will make payments totaling $600,000 beginning on December 20, 2018 and all of the Company claims have been dismissed.

 

A lawsuit has been filed against the Company in Supreme Court, Westchester County (Index No. 61772/2017), on August 9, 2017, in a case styled Porter , LeVay & Rose v. Drone USA, Inc . The complaint alleged two causes of action, one for goods and services furnished and one for an account stated, in the amount of $74,324.74. The plaintiff obtained a default judgment. The Company filed an Order to Show Cause to vacate the default judgment on the grounds that the service of the complaint was invalid. On February 14, 2018 the Company entered into a stipulation agreement with the investor relations firm which settled the amount due a $20,000 which was paid on February 16, 2018 and the Company recognized a gain on extinguishment of debt in the amount of $48,544.
