GROWLIFE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES (formerly Phototron Holdings, Inc.)

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 (Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Interim Results

 

The financial statements at September 30, 2012 and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 are unaudited, but include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring entries, which our management believes to be necessary for a fair presentation of the periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. The Company’s operating results will fluctuate for the foreseeable future. Therefore, period-to-period comparisons should not be relied upon as predictive of our operation results in future periods. 

 

Phototron, Inc. Reverse Merger

 

Phototron, Inc. (“Phototron”) was incorporated in California in 2002. On February 14, 2011, Phototron entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (“PHI Merger Agreement”) with PHI Merger Corporation, a California corporation (“PHI MergerCo”) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Growlife, Inc. (formerly Phototron Holdings, Inc.) (“we,” “us,” “our” and “our company”). The closing (the “PHI Closing”) of the transactions contemplated by the PHI Merger Agreement (the “PHI Merger”) occurred on March 9, 2011. At the Closing, (a) PHI MergerCo was merged with and into Phototron; (b) Phototron became our wholly-owned subsidiary; (c) all of Phototron’s shares and options outstanding prior to the PHI Merger were exchanged (or assumed, in the case of options) for comparable securities of our company; and (d) 95% of our fully-diluted shares were owned by Phototron’s former shareholders and option holders. At the Closing, we issued a total of 130,621,421 shares of our common stock to Phototron’s former shareholders, in exchange for the 1,666,666 shares of Phototron’s common stock outstanding prior to the PHI Merger. Upon the effectiveness of the PHI Merger, 8,662,262 shares of our common stock were maintained by our existing stockholders. In connection with the PHI Merger, we changed our name from Catalyst Lighting Group, Inc. to Phototron Holdings, Inc., on March 9, 2011.

 

Since former holders of Phototron’s common stock and options to purchase common stock owned, after the PHI Merger, approximately 95% of our fully-diluted shares of common stock, and as a result of certain other factors, including that all members of our executive management were members of Phototron’s management, Phototron was deemed to be the acquiring company and we were deemed to be the legal acquirer for accounting purposes, and the PHI Merger was accounted for as a reverse merger and a recapitalization in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). 

 

On March 21, 2012, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with SGT Merger Corporation, a Nevada corporation and our wholly-owned subsidiary (“MergerCo”), SG Technologies Corp, a Nevada corporation (“SGT”), Sterling C. Scott (the “SGT Representative”), and W-Net Fund I, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership and current holder of our common stock (the “Investor Representative”). The closing (the “Closing”) of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Merger”) occurred on April 5, 2012. At the Closing, (a) MergerCo was merged with and into SGT; (b) SGT became our wholly-owned subsidiary (the “Surviving Corporation”); and (c) all SGT shares of common stock were exchanged for shares of our common stock and shares of a new series of our preferred stock, which was designated Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), and has the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions set forth in the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designation”), which was filed with the Delaware Secretary of State on April 5, 2012. At the Closing, we issued to SGT’s former stockholders, in exchange for the 200 shares of SGT’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Merger, 157,000,000 shares of our common stock and 3,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

 

-6-
 

Since after the Merger former holders of SGT’s common stock owned in excess of 50% of our fully-diluted shares of common stock, and as a result of certain other factors, including that all members of our executive management are members of SGT’s management, SGT is deemed to be the acquiring company and we are deemed to be the legal acquirer for accounting purposes, and the Merger was accounted for as a reverse merger and a recapitalization in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The accompanying consolidated financial statements of Growlife, Inc. (formerly Phototron Holdings, Inc.) and subsidiaries reflect the historical activity of SGT, and the historical stockholders’ equity of SGT has been retroactively restated for the equivalent number of shares received in the exchange after giving effect to the differences in par value offset to additional paid-in capital. In connection with the Merger Agreement, we are deemed to have issued an additional 152,343,383 shares of common stock to our stockholders existing prior to the Merger. Net liabilities of $542,716 have been assumed as part of the purchase price.

 

On July 23, 2012, we completed the purchase of substantially all of the assets (the “Assets”) of Donna Klauenburch and Tao Klauenburch (“Tao”), general partners doing business as Greners.com (collectively, “Greners”), related to the online retail business currently operated by Greners, pursuant to the terms of an Asset Purchase Agreement entered into by the parties on July 23, 2012 (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”). The Assets included equipment, finished goods, materials and supplies, contract rights, domain names and implemented and operational components of software. In addition, the Company assumed certain of Greners’ liabilities which included Greners’ liabilities and obligations under its contracts and all express and implied warranties related to any materials supplied by Greners prior to the closing date.

 

In consideration for the Assets, the Company agreed to pay to Greners an aggregate of $450,000. Of the purchase price, $250,000 was paid in cash on the closing date and the remaining portion of the purchase price was paid in the form of a Secured Promissory Note (the “Note”) issued by the Company to Greners in the original principal amount of $200,000.

 

On August 6, 2012, Phototron Holdings, Inc. merged Growlife, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Phototron Holdings, Inc., with and into Phototron Holdings, Inc. pursuant to the Certificate of Ownership and Merger filed with the Delaware Secretary of State on July 25, 2012 to be effective August 6, 2012. As a result of the merger, on August 6, 2012, Phototron Holdings, Inc.’s corporate named changed from Phototron Holdings, Inc. to Growlife, Inc.

Photetron designs and manufactures indoor mini-greenhouses (“Phototron Units”) capable of growing almost any herb, vegetable, flower, fruit or terrestrial plant better, stronger and faster than traditional farming methods. We also formulate and sell horticultural seeds, mineral nutrient solutions, growing mediums and germination kits to facilitate hydroponic gardening through the use of our Phototron Units, in addition to replacement parts for our Phototron Units to facilitate moderate customization.

 

SG Technologies manufactures hi-powered LED (Light Emitting Diode) grow light products for indoor horticulture, sold under the brand name “Stealth Grow LED.” Through SGT, we provide USA engineered, energy efficient and “green” technology for healthy and abundant indoor gardening. Stealth Grow LED products are available through more than 2,500 hydroponic retailers, and on-line resellers in the USA and Canada. We market our products under the Phototron and Stealth Grow LED brand names. In addition, we operate an online retail and wholesale ecommerce site, Greners.com. Greners.com sells hydroponic supplies and gardening equipment. Greners also provides educational information, customer service and product support to its national and international customers.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. This basis of accounting contemplates the recovery of the Company’s assets and the satisfaction of its liabilities. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company incurred a net loss of $849,707, cash used in operations was $655,106 and had a stockholders’ equity of $163,029. The Company has experienced recurring operating losses and negative operating cash flows since inception, and has financed its working capital requirements during this period primarily through the recurring issuance of notes payable and advances from a related party. These raise substantial doubt of the Company’s continuation as a going concern.

 

Successful completion of the Company’s development programs and its transition to attaining profitable operations is dependent upon obtaining additional financing. The Company does not have sufficient resources to fund its operations for the next twelve months. Accordingly, the Company needs to raise additional funds in order to satisfy its future working capital requirements, which it may not achieve on commercially reasonable terms.

 

-7-
 

Continued negative cash flows and lack of liquidity create significant uncertainty about the Company’s ability to fully implement its operating plan, as a result of which the Company may have to reduce the scope of its planned operations. If cash resources are insufficient to satisfy the Company’s liquidity requirements, the Company would be required to scale back or discontinue its operations.

 

NOTE 2 – SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The summary of significant accounting policies presented below is designed to assist in understanding our consolidated financial statements. Such financial statements and accompanying notes are the representation of our management, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity.

 

Use of Estimates

In preparing these consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that may affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates and assumptions included in our consolidated financial statements relate to the valuation of long-lived assets, estimates of sales returns, inventory reserves and accruals for potential liabilities, and valuation assumptions related to equity instruments and share based payments.

 

Revenue

Revenue is recognized on the sale of a product when the product is shipped, which is when the risk of loss transfers to our customers, and collection of the sale is reasonably assured. A product is not shipped without an order from the customer and the completion of credit acceptance procedures. The majority of our sales are cash or credit card; however, we occasionally extend terms to our customers. Accounts receivable are reviewed periodically for collectability.

 

Sales Returns

We allow customers to return defective products when they meet certain established criteria as outlined in our sales terms and conditions. It is our practice to regularly review and revise, when deemed necessary, our estimates of sales returns, which are based primarily on actual historical return rates. We record estimated sales returns as reductions to sales, cost of sales, and accounts receivable and an increase to inventory. Returned products which are recorded as inventory are valued based upon the amount we expect to realize upon its subsequent disposition. As of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, there was no reserve for sales returns, which are minimal based upon our historical experience.

 

Warranty Costs

Estimated future warranty obligations related to certain products are provided by charges to operations in the period in which the related revenue is recognized. Estimates are based, in part, on historical experience. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we negotiated a $46,000 credit with one of our vendors for future expected warranty repairs to defective units. This amount will be used to offset expected repairs in future periods. As of September 30, 2012, this amount is included in accrued liabilities. There was no reserve for future warranty costs at December 31, 2011.

 

Shipping and Handling Fees and Cost

For the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, shipping and handling fees billed to customers of $48,529 and nil, respectively, were included in revenues. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, shipping and handling fees billed to customers of $61,068 and nil, respectively, were included in revenues.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, shipping and handling costs of $53,662 and $10,201, respectively, were included in cost of goods sold. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, shipping and handling costs of $82,918 and $25,707, respectively, were included in cost of goods sold.

 

Advertising Costs

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred and are included in general and administrative expenses in the amount of $84,377 and $17,997, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, advertising costs of $158,158 and $58,171, respectively, were included in general and administrative expenses.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

We consider cash equivalents with original maturities of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents. As of September 30, 2012, we have no cash equivalents.

 

 Inventory

Inventory is stated at lower of cost or market, with cost being determined on average cost basis. Inventory consists of purchased finished goods and components used by the contract manufacturer. There was no reserve for inventory at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

 

Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Goodwill represents the excess of purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired. We do not amortize goodwill but do assess the recoverability of goodwill in the third quarter of each fiscal year, or more often if indicators warrant, by determining whether the fair value of each reporting unit supports its carrying value. The fair values of our identified reporting units were estimated using the present value of expected future discounted cash flows.

 

We make critical assumptions and estimates in completing impairment assessments of goodwill and other intangible assets. Our cash flow projections look several years into the future and include assumptions on variables such as future sales and operating margin growth rates, economic conditions, market competition, inflation and discount rates. A 10% decrease in the estimated discounted cash flows for the reporting units tested would result in an impairment that is not material to our results of operations. A 1.0 percentage point increase in the discount rate used would also result in an impairment that is not material to our results of operations.

 

We amortize the cost of other intangible assets over their estimated useful lives, which range up to ten years, unless such lives are deemed indefinite. Intangible assets with indefinite lives are tested in the third quarter of each fiscal year for impairment, or more often if indicators warrant.There are no impairment charges related to goodwill and other intangible assets for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

Income Taxes

We account for income taxes under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which the temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Valuation allowances are recorded, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

As a result of the implementation of certain provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”), which clarifies the accounting and disclosure for uncertainty in tax positions, as defined, ASC 740 seeks to reduce the diversity in practice associated with certain aspects of the recognition and measurement related to accounting for income taxes. We adopted the provisions of ASC 740 as of January 1, 2007, and have analyzed filing positions in each of the federal and state jurisdictions where we are required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions. We have identified the U.S. federal and California as our "major" tax jurisdictions.

We believe that our income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and do not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material change to our financial position. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded pursuant to ASC 740. In addition, we did not record a cumulative effect adjustment related to the adoption of ASC 740. Our policy for recording interest and penalties associated with income-based tax audits is to record such items as a component of income taxes.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosure of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measurements. The valuation hierarchy is based upon the transparency of inputs to the valuation of an asset or liability as of the measurement date. The three levels are defined as follows:

 

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

 

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

 

Level 3 - Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The Company’s adoption of fair value measurements and disclosures did not have a material impact on the financial statements and financial statement disclosures.

 

Derivative financial instruments 

The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the consolidated statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date. As of September 30, 2012, the Company no longer has derivative financial instruments.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if all potentially dilutive common shares had been issued, using the treasury stock method. Potentially dilutive common shares were excluded from the diluted loss per share calculation because they were anti-dilutive.

 

Weighted average number of shares outstanding has been retroactively restated for the equivalent number of shares received by the accounting acquirer as a result of the reverse merger as if these shares had been outstanding as of the beginning of the earliest period presented. The 152,343,383 shares issued to the legal acquirer are included in the weighted average share calculation from April 5, 2012, the date of the exchange agreement. As of September 30, 2012, there were 12,851,187 stock options, 2,248,953 warrants and 69,000,000 convertible preferred stock for a total of 84,100,140 dilutive securities which are considered anti-dilutive and are not included in diluted earnings (loss) per share. As of December 31, 2011, there were 51,750,000 convertible preferred stock for a total of 51,750,000 dilutive securities which are considered anti-dilutive and are not included in diluted earnings (loss) per share.

 

Stock Based Compensation

We periodically issue stock options and warrants to employees and non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs. We account for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to employees based on Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, whereas the award is measured at its fair value at the date of grant and is amortized ratably over the vesting period. We account for stock option and warrant grants issued and vesting to non-employees in accordance with ASC Topic 505, “Equity”, whereas the value of the stock compensation is based upon the measurement date as determined at either (a) the date at which a performance commitment is reached, or (b) at the date at which the necessary performance to earn the equity instruments is complete.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2011-04, “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs”. ASU No. 2011-4 does not require additional fair value measurements and is not intended to establish valuation standards or affect valuation practices outside of financial reporting. The ASU is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. We have adopted the ASU as required. The ASU affects our fair value disclosures, but will not affect our results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”. The ASU eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders’ equity, and instead requires consecutive presentation of the statement of net income and other comprehensive income either in a continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. ASU No. 2011-5 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. We adopted the ASU as required. It has no affect on our results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

 

The FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2012-02 Intangibles Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment, on July 27, 2012, to simplify the testing for a drop in value of intangible assets such as trademarks, patents, and distribution rights. The amended standard reduces the cost of accounting for indefinite-lived intangible assets, especially in cases where the likelihood of impairment is low. The changes permit businesses and other organizations to first use subjective criteria to determine if an intangible asset has lost value. The amendments to U.S. GAAP will be effective for fiscal years starting after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted. The ASU could affect our fair value disclosures, and our results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the AICPA, and the SEC did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on our present or future consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3 – ACQUISITION - SGT

 

On March 21, 2012, we entered into the Merger Agreement. The Closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement occurred on April 5, 2012. At the Closing, (a) MergerCo was merged with and into SGT; (b) SGT became our wholly-owned subsidiary; and (c) all SGT shares of common stock were exchanged for shares of our common stock and shares of our Series A Preferred. At the Closing, we issued to SGT’s former stockholders, in exchange for the 200 shares of SGT’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Merger, 157,000,000 shares of our common stock and 3,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

 

Since after the Merger former holders of SGT’s common stock owned in excess of 50% of our fully-diluted shares of common stock, and as a result of certain other factors, including that all members of our executive management are members of SGT’s management, SGT is deemed to be the acquiring company and we are deemed to be the legal acquirer for accounting purposes, and the Merger was accounted for as a reverse merger and a recapitalization in accordance with GAAP. The accompanying consolidated financial statements of GrowLife, Inc. (formerly Phototron Holdings, Inc.) and subsidiaries reflect the historical activity of SGT, and the historical stockholders’ equity of SGT has been retroactively restated for the equivalent number of shares received in the exchange after giving effect to the differences in par value offset to additional paid-in capital. In connection with the Merger Agreement, we are deemed to have issued an additional 152,343,383 shares of common stock to our stockholders existing prior to the Merger.

 

The Company has estimated that the fair value of the 152,343,383 common shares issued to the former stockholders of the Growlife Inc. to be $300,000; however, a formal valuation is underway and actual valuation may differ. The purchase price has been allocated to specific identifiable tangible and intangible assets at their fair value at the date of the purchase in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 805, “Business Combinations”, as follows:

NOTE 9 – 6% SENIOR CONVERTIBLE NOTES

On September 28, 2012, the Company entered into an amendment and exchange agreement (“Exchange Agreement”) with W-Net Fund I, Europa International, Inc., Sterling Scott, Robert Shapiro, Lauri Bilawa, Carla Badaracco and Forglen, LLC (the “Investors”). The Exchange Agreement provided for the issuance of new 6% Senior Convertible Notes (the “Notes”) that replaced the 6% Senior Convertible Notes that were issued during 2012. In connection with the Exchange Agreement, the investors invested additional capital and converted existing advances into the new notes. Accordingly, the principal balance of the new Notes was increased to $1,951,107.

The Notes accrue interest at the rate of 6% per annum and have a maturity date of April 15, 2015. No cash payments are required; however, accrued interest shall be due at maturity. In the event of a default the Investors may declare the entire principal and accrued interest to be due and payable. Default interest will accrue at the rate of 12% per annum. The Notes are secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company.

The Notes are convertible into common stock at the rate of $0.007 per share. The Company has determined that conversion feature qualifies as an embedded conversion feature and has determined its value to be $822,033. The Company calculated the beneficial conversion feature at its intrinsic value. The conversion price is subject to adjustment for stock splits and the like; however, the conversion price is not subject to adjustment in the event of a fundamental transaction or a dilutive issuance and the like. Accordingly, the beneficial conversion feature has been accounted for as a valuation discount to the Notes and will be amortized as an expense over the 2.5 year life of the Notes.

The Notes are summarized as follows:

   September 30,  December 31,
   2012  2011
6% senior secured convertible notes  $1,951,107   $—   
Debt discount related to conversion feature   822,033    —   
   $1,129,074   $—   

 

The above notes replace certain notes issued during the second quarter of 2012. The previously issued notes consisted of the following:

In conjunction with the Merger on April 5, 2012, we issued certain 6% senior secured convertible notes payable in the amount of $670,129 and due on April 15, 2015. The notes were secured by substantially all of the assets of the company and three trademarks. Interest was accrued and is due at maturity. In the event of a default, the note holders may declare the entire principal and interest due and payable. The default interest rate were 12% per annum. The notes were convertible into common stock with an initial conversion price of $0.035 per share. The note conversion price were subject to specified adjustments for certain changes in the number of outstanding shares of our common stock, including conversions or exchanges of such. If additional shares of our capital stock were issued, except in specified exempt issuances, for consideration which was less than the then existing note conversion price (a “Dilutive Issuance”), then such conversion price would be subject to a “full ratchet” adjustment that generally reduces the conversion price to equal the price in the Dilutive Issuance, regardless of the size of the Dilutive Issuance.

In accordance with current accounting guidelines, the Company determined that the full ratchet adjustment of the conversion feature created a derivative liability upon issuance. The fair value of the embedded beneficial conversion feature of the Notes was determined by management to be $331,463 using a weighted average Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model. This amount was recorded as a derivative liability and a valuation discount upon issuance. The valuation discount was amortized as an expense over the 3 year life of the notes.

In connection with the reverse merger, we issued 6% notes payable in the amount of $500,000 to the former note holders and stockholders of SGT in exchange for notes of $218,000 previously issued by the company and $282,000 of advances that were due to our Chief Executive Officer. The Notes were unsecured and pay 6% interest per annum with a maturity date of April 15, 2015. Our obligations under the Notes would have accelerated upon bankruptcy, any default by us of our payment obligations under the Notes or the breach of any provision of any material agreement between us and such note holders. Default interest would have accrued after an event of default at an annual rate of 12%. The Notes were convertible at any time into common stock at a specified conversion price, which initially was $0.035 per share. The conversion price was subject to specified adjustments for certain changes in the number of outstanding shares of our common stock. In the event a dilutive issuance occurs such conversion price would be subject to a “full ratchet” adjustment that generally reduces the conversion price to equal the price in the dilutive issuance, regardless of the size of the dilutive issuance.

 

In accordance with current accounting guidelines, the Company determined that the full ratchet adjustment of the conversion feature created a derivative liability upon issuance. The fair value of the embedded beneficial conversion feature of the Notes was determined by management to be $245,920 using a weighted average Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model. This amount was recorded as a derivative liability and a valuation discount upon issuance. The valuation discount was amortized as an expense over the 3 year life of the notes.

On June 12, 2012, we issued a $25,000 unsecured convertible note payable with an interest rate of 6% per annum. The note was unsecured and is due on June 13, 2015. Interest was accrued monthly and payable at maturity. The Note was convertible at any time into common stock at a specified conversion price, which initially was $0.035 per share. The conversion price was subject to specified adjustments for certain changes in the number of outstanding shares of our common stock. In the event a dilutive issuance occurs such conversion price would be subject to a “full ratchet” adjustment that generally reduces the conversion price to equal the price in the dilutive issuance, regardless of the size of the dilutive issuance.

In accordance with current accounting guidelines, the Company determined that the full ratchet adjustment of the conversion feature created a derivative liability upon issuance. The fair value of the embedded beneficial conversion feature of the Notes was determined by management to be $14,943 using a weighted average Black-Scholes Merton option pricing model. This amount was recorded as a derivative liability and a valuation discount upon issuance. The valuation discount was amortized as an expense over the 3 year life of the notes.

NOTE 10 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

In April 2008, the FASB issued a pronouncement that provides guidance on determining what types of instruments or embedded features in an instrument held by a reporting entity can be considered indexed to its own stock for the purpose of evaluating the first criteria of the scope exception in the pronouncement on accounting for derivatives. This pronouncement was effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008. The adoption of these requirements can affect the accounting for warrants and many convertible instruments with provisions that protect holders from a decline in the stock price (or “down-round” provisions). For example, warrants or conversion features with such provisions are no longer recorded in equity. Down-round provisions reduce the exercise price of a warrant or convertible instrument if a company either issues equity shares for a price that is lower than the exercise price of those instruments or issues new warrants or convertible instruments that have a lower exercise price.

We evaluated whether convertible debt and warrants to acquire stock of the Company contain provisions that protect holders from declines in the stock price or otherwise could result in modification of the exercise price under the respective convertible debt and warrant agreements. We determined that the conversion feature in the convertible notes issued during the second quarter of this year contained such provisions and recorded such instruments as derivative liabilities. Derivative liabilities were initially valued using the weighted-average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model, which approximates the Monte Carlo and other binomial valuation techniques, with the following assumptions; (i) dividend yield of 0%; (ii) expected volatility of 74%; (iii) risk free rate of 0.04% and (iv) expected term of 3.08 years. Based upon this model, the Company determined an initial value of $592,326. The Company revalued the derivative liability at June 30, 2012, and determined that the value of the derivative liability had increased to $968,325 and recorded a charge to other expense. As described above, on September 28, 2012, the Company exchanged these notes for new notes that did not qualify for derivative liability treatment. Accordingly, the Company revalued the derivative liability at September 28, 2012 using the weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model with the following assumptions; (i) dividend yield of 0%; (ii) expected volatility of 74%; (iii) risk free rate of 0.04% and (iv) expected term of 2.73 years. Due to the decline in the Company’s stock price from $0.05 at June 30, 2012 to $0.01 at September 28, 2012, the value of the derivative liability decreased to $66,707 and the Company recorded a credit to other income of $901,618. The remaining $66,707 was credited to other income at September 28, 2012 as part of the Exchange Agreement. The Notes issued as part of the Exchange Agreement contain a provision whereby they are convertible into shares of common stock at an intial conversion price of $0.007 per share. The initial conversion price will be adjusted for stock splits and the like. However, the conversion price of the new Notes will not be adjusted for a fundamental transaction or a down-round financing and do not qualify as a derivative liability.

Common Stock

 

In conjunction with the reverse merger, the Company is considered to have issued 152,343,383 shares to the former shareholders of the Company. (See Note 3)

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

 

This discussion summarizes the significant factors affecting our operating results, financial condition and liquidity and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. The discussion and analysis that follows should be read together with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes to the financial statements included elsewhere in this report. Except for historical information, the matters discussed in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations are forward looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties and are based upon judgments concerning various factors that are beyond our control. Our actual results could differ materially from the results anticipated in any forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors, including those discussed in the section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 4, 2012, captioned “Risk Factors.”

 

Overview

 

On March 21, 2012, we entered into the Merger Agreement and the Closing of the transactions occurred on April 5, 2012. At the Closing, (a) MergerCo was merged with and into SGT; (b) SGT became our wholly-owned subsidiary; and (c) all SGT shares of common stock were exchanged for shares of our common stock and shares of Series A Preferred Stock. At the Closing, we issued to SGT’s former stockholders, in exchange for the 200 shares of SGT’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the Merger, 157,000,000 shares of our common stock and 3,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

 

We design and manufacture indoor mini-greenhouses capable of growing almost any herb, vegetable, flower, fruit or terrestrial plant better, stronger and faster than traditional farming methods. Our products (“Phototron Units”), consisting of 21” x 39” units and 21” x 51” units, provide between 18,900 and 36,000 lumens of light.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 Compared to September 30, 2011

 

Revenue and cost of revenue

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, our revenue was $475,870, which was $260,216 (121%) more than in the three months ended September 30, 2011. This increase was mainly due to the combined revenues of the two entities. The gross profit margin during the three months ended September 30, 2012, was 34% compared to 57% during the three months ended September 30, 2011 and reflects a change in the customer base

 

Expenses

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, our general and administrative expenses were $534,176 compared to $108,419 during the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $425,757. During 2011, we were a privately held company and did not incur any of the expense of being a public company. Those expenses include stock compensation, professional fees for legal, accounting, consultants and directors and officers insurance. Additionally, we hired most of Phototron’s general, administrative and sales staff; thereby incurring higher wage expense during the current quarter. We expect that our general and administrative expenses will remain at, or near, the current level for the foreseeable future.

Other Expenses

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, we incurred $403,195 of other income expenses, including $473,152 change in derivative liability and $69,957 of interest expense related to the amortization of discount on our subordinated notes payable. During the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we incurred interest expense of $7,584.

 

Gain

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we incurred a net income of $28,699 compared to a net income of $6,114 during the three months ended September 30, 2011. 

 

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 Compared to September 30, 2011

 

Revenue and cost of revenue

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, our revenue was $776,125, which was $43,229 (6%) more than in the nine months ended September 30, 2011. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, management was focused on completing the reverse merger and integrating its systems, facilities, policies and procedures and developing a new strategic direction for the company. The gross profit margin during the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was 33% compared to 36% during the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and reflects a change in the customer base from lower margin distributors to higher margin sales to retail customers.

 

Expenses

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, our general and administrative expenses were $1,068,510 compared to $344,360 during the nine months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of $724,150. During 2011, we were a privately held company and did not incur any of the expense of being a public company. Those expenses include stock compensation, professional fees for legal, accounting, consultants and directors and officers insurance. Additionally, we hired most of Phototron’s general, administrative and sales staff; thereby incurring higher wage expense during the current quarter. We expect that our general and administrative expenses will remain at, or near, the current level for the foreseeable future.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we incurred $41,036 of other expenses, including $97,153 change in derivative liability and $138,189 of interest expense related to the amortization of discount on our subordinated notes payable. During the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we incurred interest expense of $16,210.

 

Loss

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2012, we had a working capital of $50,155 compared to a working capital deficiency of $379,262 at December 31, 2011. We have relied on funds generated through operations, through loans and through selling shares of our common stock in a series of private placements.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash used in operations was $1,100,821 compared to cash used of $111,679 during the same period in the prior year. Those expenses include professional fees for legal, accounting, consultants and directors and officers insurance. Additionally, we hired most of Phototron’s general, administrative and sales staff; thereby incurring higher wage expense during the current quarter. During the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we did not incur any non-cash expenses.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we received $9,825 in cash from our reverse merger with Phototron Holdings, Inc. and purchased the assets of Greners.com for $250,000. We had no investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash provided by financing activities was $1,480,740.

 

Unless our operations generate significant revenues and cash flows from operating activities, our continued operations will depend on whether we are able to raise additional funds through various potential sources, such as equity and debt financing, other collaborative agreements and strategic alliances. Our management is actively engaged in seeking additional capital to fund our operations in the short to medium term. We also intend to obtain, where appropriate, increases of the amounts available to us under existing revolving promissory notes. Such additional funds may not become available on acceptable terms and there can be no assurance that any additional funding that we do obtain will be sufficient to meet our needs in the long term.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Not Applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We evaluated the design and operating effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2012, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) of the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that as of September 30, 2012 our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

Management has identified the following material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting:

• Our information systems lack sufficient controls limiting access to key applications and data; and

• Effective controls to ensure the accuracy, valuation and timeliness of the financial accounting process around inventory, including a lack of accuracy and basis for valuation resulting in adjustments to the amount of cost of revenues and the carrying amount of inventory.

Due to the identified material weaknesses, management has concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of September 30, 2012.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting and Remediation of the Material Weaknesses

During the quarter ended September 30, 2012, no changes to our internal control over financial reporting were identified that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

We are investing in efforts to improve the control environment and intend to commit resources to the continuous improvement of the design, implementation, documentation, testing, and monitoring of our internal controls.

Remediation Plans

Management, in coordination with the input, oversight and support of our Board of Directors, intends to strengthen our internal control over financial reporting and to address the material weaknesses described above. In addition to improving the effectiveness and compliance with key controls, our remediation efforts will involve ongoing business and accounting process improvements and the implementation of key system enhancements. The process and system enhancements will be generally designed to simplify and standardize business practices and to improve timeliness and access to associated accounting data through increased systems automation, appropriate limitations around IT access, as well as timely testing of controls throughout the fiscal year. While we expect remedial actions to be essentially implemented by the end of fiscal 2012, some may not be in place for a sufficient period of time to help us certify that material weaknesses have been fully remediated as of the end of fiscal year 2012. We will continue to develop our remediation plans and implement additional measures during the remainder of fiscal 2012 and possibly into fiscal 2013.

Inherent Limitation on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls

The effectiveness of any system of internal control over financial reporting is subject to inherent limitations, including the exercise of judgment in designing, implementing, operating, and evaluating the controls and procedures, and the inability to eliminate misconduct completely. Accordingly, any system of internal control over financial reporting can only provide reasonable, not absolute, assurances. In addition, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. We intend to continue to monitor and upgrade our internal controls as necessary or appropriate for our business, but cannot assure you that such improvements will be sufficient to provide us with effective internal control over financial reporting.
