NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.     BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending June 30, 2015. For further information refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014.

 

Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company does not generate revenue, and has negative cash flows from operations, which raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, additional cash infusion. The Company has historically obtained funds from its shareholders through the sale of its securities. Management believes that it will be able to continue to raise funds from its existing shareholders and new investors to meet the Company’s obligations as they become due and to continue the development of its core business. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to continue raising the required capital.

 

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when services are performed, and at the time of shipment of products, provided that evidence of an arrangement exists, title and risk of loss have passed to the customer, fees are fixed or determinable, and collection of the related receivable is reasonably assured. To date, the Company has had no revenues.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalent

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the accompanying financial statements. Significant estimates made in preparing these financial statements include the estimate of useful lives of intangible assets, and the deferred tax valuation allowance. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Disclosures about fair value of financial instruments, requires disclosure of the fair value information, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, where it is practicable to estimate that value. As of March 31, 2015, the amounts reported for cash, accrued interest and other expenses, notes payables, and derivative liability approximate the fair value because of their short maturities.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments (Continued)

 

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. ASC Topic 820 established a three-tier fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). These tiers include:

 

Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable such as quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and
Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions, such as valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

  

We measure certain financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are as follows at March 31, 2015:

 

     Total   (Level 1)   (Level 2)   (Level 3) 
                   
  Liabilities                
                       
  Derivative liability   10,233,770    -    -    10,233,770 
  Total liabilities measured at fair value  $10,233,770   $-   $-   $10,233,770 

 

The following is a reconciliation of the derivative liability for which Level 3 inputs were used in determining the approximate fair value:

 

  Beginning balance as of July 1, 2014  $8,667,274 
  Fair value of derivative liabilities issued   1,800,221 
  Gain on conversion of notes payable   (1,166,385)
  Loss on change in derivative liability   932,660 
  Ending balance as of March 31, 2015  $10,233,770

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Loss per Share Calculations

Loss per Share dictates the calculation of basic earnings per share and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares available. Diluted earnings per share is computed similar to basic earnings per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. No shares for the convertible notes were used in the calculation of the loss per share as they were all anti-dilutive. The Company’s diluted loss per share is the same as the basic loss per share for the nine months ended March 31, 2015, as the inclusion of any potential shares would have had an anti-dilutive effect due to the Company generating a loss.

 

Income Taxes

The Company uses the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards. The measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities is based on provisions of applicable tax law. The measurement of deferred tax assets is reduced, if necessary, by a valuation allowance based on the amount of tax benefits that, based on available evidence, is not expected to be realized.

 

Stock based Compensation

Share-based Payment applies to transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services and also applies to liabilities an entity may incur for goods or services that are to follow a fair value of those equity instruments. The Company will be required to follow a fair value approach using an option-pricing model, such as the Black Scholes option valuation model, at the date of a stock option grant. The deferred compensation calculated under the fair value method would then be amortized over the respective vesting period of the stock option.

 

Recently issued pronouncements

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, “Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs” this Update as part of its initiative to reduce complexity in accounting standards (the Simplification Initiative). The Board received feedback that having different balance sheet presentation requirements for debt issuance costs and debt discount and premium creates unnecessary complexity. Recognizing debt issuance costs as a deferred charge (that is, an asset) also is different from the guidance in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which requires that transaction costs be deducted from the carrying value of the financial liability and not recorded as separate assets. Additionally, the requirement to recognize debt issuance costs as deferred charges conflicts with the guidance in FASB Concepts Statement No. 6, Elements of Financial Statements, which states that debt issuance costs are similar to debt discounts and in effect reduce the proceeds of borrowing, thereby increasing the effective interest rate. Concepts Statement 6 further states that debt issuance costs cannot be an asset because they provide no future economic benefit. To simplify presentation of debt issuance costs, the amendments in this Update require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by the amendments in this Update. For public business entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company is currently evaluating the effects of adopting this ASU, if it is deemed to be applicable.

2.     SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

Recently issued pronouncements (Continued)

On August 27, 2014, the Company adopted the amendment to ASU 2014-15 on Presentation of Financial Statements Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40). The amendment provides for guidance to reduce diversity in the timing and content of footnote disclosures. The amendment requires management to assess the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern by incorporating and expanding upon certain principles that are currently in U.S. auditing standards. The Company has to define the term of substantial doubt, which has to be evaluated every reporting period including interim periods. Management has to provide principles for considering the mitigating effect of its plan, and disclose when substantial doubt is alleviated as well as when it is not alleviated. The Company is required to assess managements plan for a period of one year after the financial statements are issued (or available to be issued). The amendment is effective for annual periods ending after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not believe the accounting standards currently adopted will have a material effect on the accompanying condensed financial statements.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the accompanying condensed financial statements.

The Company received additional advances in the amount of $74,000 for an aggregate sum of $100,000.The note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company at a price equal to a variable conversion price of the lesser of $0.0048 per share or fifty percent (50%) of the lowest trading price after the effective date of each respective advance. The note matured on May 16, 2014, and was extended to May 16, 2015. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $6,437 during the nine months ended March 31, 2015.

 

On March 5, 2014, the Company received funds of $30,000 in consideration for issuance of a securities purchase agreement entered into for the sale of a 10% convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of up to $100,000. On April 15, 2014, the lender and borrower agreed to amend the note to increase the principle sum to $150,000. The Company received additional advances in the amount of $120,000 for an aggregate sum of $150,000. The note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company at a price equal to a variable conversion price of the lesser of $0.0048 per share or fifty percent (50%) of the lowest trading price after the effective date of each respective advance. The note matured six (6) months from the effective dates of each respective advance. On September 4, 2014, the note was extended to September 5, 2015.The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $75,833 during the nine months ended March 31, 2015.

 

On May 23, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement for the sale of a 10% convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of up to $500,000, $50,000 of which was funded simultaneously with entry into the securities purchase agreement. The Company received additional advances in the amount of $415,000 for an aggregate sum of $465,000. The note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company at a price equal to a variable conversion price of the lesser of $0.0048 per share or fifty percent (50%) of the lowest trading price after the effective date of each respective advance. The note matures six (6) months from the effective dates of each respective advance. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount, which was recognized as interest expense in the amount of $207,110 during the nine months ended March 31, 2015.

 

ASC Topic 815 provides guidance applicable to convertible debt issued by the Company in instances where the number into which the debt can be converted is not fixed. For example, when a convertible debt converts at a discount to market based on the stock price on the date of conversion, ASC Topic 815 requires that the embedded conversion option of the convertible debt be bifurcated from the host contract and recorded at their fair value. In accounting for derivatives under accounting standards, the Company recorded a liability representing the estimated present value of the conversion feature considering the historic volatility of the Company’s stock, and a discount representing the imputed interest associated with the embedded derivative. The discount is amortized over the life of the convertible debt, and the derivative liability is adjusted periodically according to stock price fluctuations.

 

6.     DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

 

The convertible notes issued and described in Note 5 do not have fixed settlement provisions because their conversion prices are not fixed. The conversion features have been characterized as derivative liabilities to be re-measured at the end of every reporting period with the change in value reported in the statement of operations.

 

During the nine months ended March 31, 2015, approximately $72,341 in convertible notes plus interest were converted. As a result of the conversion of these notes, and the revaluation of the derivatives, the Company recognized a net gain of $233,725 to account for the change in fair value of the derivative liabilities. At March 31, 2015, the fair value of the derivative liability was $10,233,770.

 

For purpose of determining the fair market value of the derivative liability for the embedded conversion, the Company used Black Scholes option valuation model. The significant assumptions used in the Black Scholes valuation of the derivative are as follows:

 

Risk free interest rate 0.03% - 0.26%
Stock volatility factor 23.89% - 318.08%
Weighted average expected option life 1 month - 1 year
Expected dividend yield None

Overview

 

Inspired by the photosynthetic process that plants use to harness the power of the sun to create energy molecules, we are developing a novel solar-powered particle system that mimics photosynthesis to separate hydrogen from water.  On November 15, 2011, we filed a patent application to protect the intellectual property rights to the production of renewable hydrogen and natural gas using sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide. This patent is currently in the review stage.

 

Hydrogen is the lightest and abundant chemical element, constituting roughly 75% of the universe's chemical elemental mass (Palmer, D. (13 September 1997). "Hydrogen in the Universe".NASA). However, naturally occurring elemental hydrogen is relatively rare on earth and hydrogen gas is most often produced using fossil fuels. Industrial production is mainly from the steam reforming of natural gas and is usually employed near its production site, with the two largest uses being crude oil processing (hydrocracking) and ammonia production, mostly for the fertilizer market.  We are developing what we believe is a cleaner and greener way to produce this high value product. 

 

In addition to the many industrial uses of hydrogen, one of the most intriguing uses, is for fuel cells for transportation. A fuel cell is a device that converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through a chemical reaction with oxygen or another oxidizing agent, using hydrogen as the most common fuel. In 2013, many automotive manufacturers announced plans to develop hydrogen vehicles including Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, and BMW. Source:

(http://www.driveclean.ca.gov/Search_and_Explore/Technologies_and_Fuel_Types/Hydrogen_Fuel_Cell.php)

 

On May 20, 2014 the first Hyundai fuel cell vehicles (FCEV’s) rolled onto U.S. soil marking the first delivery of mass-produced fuel cell hydrogen vehicles in the U.S. market. (Source: http://www.hyundainews.com/us/en-us/Media/PressRelease.aspx?mediaid=40852&title=hyundais-first-mass-produced-tucson-fuel-cell-cuvs-arrive-in-southern-california)

 

Our research is centered on developing a low-cost and submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water molecules under the sun, emulating the core functions of photosynthesis. Each particle is a complete hydrogen generator that contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts by a proprietary encapsulation coating.  We are striving to reach an open circuit voltage (OCV) goal of 1.5 to effectively split the water molecules to produce hydrogen with our technology. On December 9, 2014, we announced that we had reached open circuit voltage of 1.25. We are currently working on increasing the OCV to 1.5 and building a larger proof of concept prototype of our technology.

 

On March 17, we jointly filed a full utility patent application with the University of California, Santa Barbara (“UCSB”) for the “method of manufacture of multi-junction artificial photosynthetic cells.”

Market Opportunity

 

Hydrogen has a number of applications from chemical processing, petroleum recovery and refining, metal production and fabrication, aerospace, and fuel cells. The sectors with the greatest demand for hydrogen are petroleum refineries for hydrocracking and ammonia production for fertilizer. Transportation fuel is an emerging sector which we believe has an enormous potential in the future.  We believe fuel cell technology will be the major growth driver of hydrogen in the future as many major automobile manufacturers such as Honda, Hyundai, BMW and Toyota bring hydrogen powered cars to market.

 

The Hydrogen Generation Market will grow from an estimated $103.5 Billion in 2014 to $138.2 Billion by 2019, with a CAGR of 5.9%. (Markets and Markets Research; Hydrogen Generation Market).

 

As hydrogen fuel technology continues to garner attention from the mainstream consumer as well as industrial sectors, the industry is set to become as competitive as solar and wind energies. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to impairment of property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, deferred tax assets and fair value computation using the Black Scholes option pricing model. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions, such as the trading value of our common stock and estimated future undiscounted cash flows, that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions; however, we believe that our estimates, including those for the above-described items, are reasonable.

Use of Estimates

 

In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, management utilizes estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions relate to recording useful lives and impairment of tangible and intangible assets, accruals, stock-based compensation expense, Black Scholes valuation model inputs, derivative liabilities and other factors. Management believes it has exercised reasonable judgment in deriving these estimates. Consequently, a change in conditions could affect these estimates.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company's cash, accounts payable, accrued interest, and note payable are stated at cost which approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management reviewed the recently issued accounting pronouncements during the nine months ended March 31, 2015, as disclosed in the Notes to the financial statements included in this report.

 

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2015 compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2014.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $151,612 and $127,869 for the prior period ended March 31, 2015. The net increase in operating expenses consisted primarily of the research and development cost associated with outside testing.

 

Other Income/(Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $(1,548,301) and $(12,825,807) for the prior period ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in other income and (expenses) was the result of a decrease in net loss on change in fair value of the derivative instruments of $11,266,430, gain on forgiveness of debt of $25,293, and amortization of debt discount of $43,748, with an increase in interest expense of $7,379. The net decrease in other income and (expenses) was due to the loss in change in derivative liability.

Other Income/(Expenses)

 

Other income and (expenses) for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 were $(1,540,332) and $(13,652,610) for the prior period ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in other income and (expenses) was the result of a decrease in net loss on change in fair value of the derivative instruments of $12,053,824, gain on forgiveness of debt of $32,831, and amortization of debt discount of $107,459, with an offset of interest expense of $16,174. The net increase in other income and (expenses) was due to the loss in change in derivative liability.

 

Net Loss

 

For the nine months ended March 31, 2015, our net loss was $1,935,647 as compared to $14,059,767 for the prior period March 31, 2014. The decrease in net loss was related primarily to other income and (expenses) due to a decrease in non-cash cost associated with the derivatives. The Company has not generated any revenues.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2015, we had a working capital deficit of $11,114,916 as compared to $9,262,871 as of June 30, 2014. This increase in working capital deficit of $1,852,045 was due primarily to an increase in accrued expenses, convertible notes, and non-cash derivative liability, offset with a decrease in cash and accounts payable.

 

Cash flow used in operating activities was $418,844 for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 and $335,535 for the prior period ended March 31, 2014. The increase in cash used by operating activities was primarily due to a decrease in prepaid expenses, deposits, accounts payable, accrued expenses, amortization of debt discount and loss on change in derivative liability. The Company has had no revenues.

 

Cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 was $0, compared to $2,020 for the prior period ended March 31, 2014.

 

Cash provided by financing activities during the nine months ended March 31, 2015 was $365,000 and $397,500 for the prior period ended March 31, 2014. The increase in financing activities was due to equity financing with convertible notes through private placements during the current period.

 

Our financial statements as of March 31, 2015 have been prepared under the assumption that we will continue as a going concern for the year ended June 30, 2015. HJ Associates & Consultants LLP, in their report dated September 23, 2014, on our financial statements, included an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt in our ability to continue as a going concern without additional capital becoming available. Our ability to continue as a going concern ultimately is dependent on our ability to generate a profit which is dependent upon our ability to obtain additional equity or debt financing, attain further operating efficiencies and, ultimately, to achieve profitable operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

We believe our current cash balance as of May 13, 2015 will fund our operations for the next sixty days as we continue  working to develop a prototype of our technology. As a result of our inability to raise sufficient financing in our third fiscal quarter, our CEO and certain vendors have not been fully compensated for their services. The sale of additional equity securities could result in additional dilution to our stockholders. There can be no assurance that financing will be available in amounts and on terms acceptable to us, or at all. To the extent that additional capital is raised through the sale of equity or convertible debt securities, the issuance of these securities could result in further dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased debt service obligations and could result in operating and financing covenants that would restrict our operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may be forced to curtail our operations.

 

PLAN OF OPERATION AND FINANCING NEEDS

 

Our plan of operation within the next twelve months is to further research, develop, and protect our technology. 

 

In tandem with work on our self-contained particles, we will be working on the system side of the H2 Generator and production unit and larger prototype.

 

Our financing needs consist of general operating expenses, sponsorship agreements with academic institutions, patent prosecution and IP protection and paying consultants.
