Item 1. Business.  

 

Corporate History and Overview

 

Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. (“we,” “us,” the “Company,” or “Jerrick Media”) (formerly Great Plains Holdings, Inc. or “GTPH”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on December 30, 1999 under the name LILM, Inc. The Company changed its name on December 3, 2013 to Great Plains Holdings, Inc. as part of its plans to diversify its business through the acquisition and operation of commercial real estate, including but not limited to self-storage facilities, apartment buildings, 55+ senior manufactured homes communities, and other income producing properties. Historically, the Company has principally engaged in manufacture and marketing of the LiL Marc, a plastic boys’ toilet-training device which we discontinued as of December 31, 2014.

 

On February 5, 2016 (the “Closing Date”), GTPH, GPH Merger Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of GTPH (“Merger Sub”), and Jerrick Ventures, Inc., a privately-held Nevada corporation headquartered in New Jersey (“Jerrick”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which the Merger Sub was merged with and into Jerrick, with Jerrick surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GTPH (the “Merger”). GTPH acquired, through a reverse triangular merger, all of the outstanding capital stock of Jerrick in exchange for issuing Jerrick’s shareholders (the “Jerrick Shareholders”), pro-rata, a total of 28,500,000 shares of GTPH’s common stock. GTPH assumed 33,415 shares of Jerrick’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “JerrickSeries A Preferred”) and 8,064 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “JerrickSeries B Preferred”).

   

In connection with the Merger, on February 5, 2016, GTPH and Kent Campbell entered into a Spin-Off Agreement (the “Spin-Off Agreement”), pursuant to which Mr. Campbell purchased from GTPH (i) all of GTPH’s interest in Ashland Holdings, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, and (ii) all of GTPH’s interest in Lil Marc, Inc., a Utah corporation, in exchange for the cancellation of 781,818 shares of GTPH’s Common Stock held by Mr. Campbell. In addition, Mr. Campbell assumed all debts, obligations and liabilities of GTPH’s any existing prior to the Merger, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Spin-Off Agreement.

 

Effective February 28, 2016, GTPH entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Statutory Merger Agreement”) with Jerrick, pursuant to which GTPH became the parent company of Jerrick Ventures, LLC, a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Jerrick (the Statutory Merger”).

 

On February 28, 2016, GTPH changed its name to Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. to better reflect its new business strategy. Jerrick Media produces and distributes digital media content, including, but not limited to, videos, imagery, articles, e-books, film, and television, across multiple platforms for each brand in our portfolio. We sell genre specific products related to our brands, including, but limited to, video downloads, image downloads, photographs, art, magazines, apparel, toys, and signed and unsigned collectibles to consumers through our online stores, auctions, conventions, and third party wholesalers and retailers.

 

GTPH 2015 Business

 

Prior to our February 5, 2016 acquisition of Jerrick, we were engaged in the acquisition and operation of commercial real estate and the manufacture and marketing of the LiL Marc, a plastic boys’ toilet-training device which we discontinued as of December 31, 2014.

 

Real Estate

 

As of December 31, 2015 we had acquired a total of seven properties, five are in Florida and two are in South Carolina, for a total net investment of approximately $463,817.

Recent Developments

 

Upon closing of the Merger on February 5, 2016, the Company changed its business plan to that of Jerrick Media.

 

Jerrick Media Business

 

We produce and distribute digital media content, including, but not limited to, videos, imagery, articles, e-books, film, and television, across multiple platforms for each brand in our portfolio. We sell genre specific products related to our brands, including but limited to, video downloads, image downloads, photographs, art, magazines, apparel, toys, and signed and unsigned collectibles to consumers through our online stores, auctions, conventions, and third party wholesalers and retailers. Revenues are generated in two different categories: (i) the sale of advertising and marketing services related to our content, including but not limited to pre-roll videos, text and image advertisements, native advertisements, and affiliate marketing and (ii) the sale of genre specific products related to our brands and, licensing of our content for download-to-own services. Demand and pricing for our advertising depends on our user base and overall market conditions. We also drive additional demand through integrated sales of digital advertising inventory and through our marketing services, providing unique branded entertainment and custom sponsorship opportunities to our advertisers. Our advertising revenues may be affected by the strength of advertising markets and general economic conditions and may fluctuate depending on the success of our content, as measured by the number of people visiting our websites at any given time.

Our Market

 

According to Forrest Research's “Using eCommerce To Monetize Digital Content In The Media Industry” report, Content driven e-commerce proves to be one of the most profitable options for media companies to create a new revenue channel, enhance engagement with their audience base, and differentiate themselves from other media companies without a digital e-commerce platform. Forrester Research estimates that online consumers will increase their spending to $327 billion by 2016 from $202 billion in 2011. In addition, 52% of U.S. consumers buy directly from brands online. We believe we can capitalize on a content to commerce model as advances in technology and declining barriers to entry have allowed for cost effective construction of commerce infrastructure outside of the traditional Amazon and eBay models.

 

Our Strategy

 

Although we believe that producing refreshing content is great, our business is driven by best practice search engine optimization guidelines, and centers on the theory that receiving monetary compensation for that content is even better. We subscribe to a content to commerce model, which we believe to be the future of digital monetization. Simplistically, content commerce is the process of obtaining revenue from your digital content, in whatever form that content happens to be presented, including but not limited to, books, music, video, newsletters and pictures.

 

Content to commerce goes beyond the traditional Amazon.com and Ebay.com models of e-commerce, or the buying and selling of products or services using the internet. By combining content and commerce we believe we can monetize specific audiences on multiple fronts, which not only includes traditional advertisements but also transactions in which we are able to sell audiences the products they are interested in buying through their engagement of our content tailored to affiliate activities.

 

Traditional internet commerce websites such as Amazon.com and Ebay.com generally focus on the products themselves to generate sales, but that is where our business model deviates from such traditional ecommerce revenue models. For example, we create curated best book lists, attached to a franchise such as StarWars. Our digital media content drives commerce. Commerce can occur on multiple fronts, including but not limited to general product sales, auctions, digital downloads of both videos and imagery, and online advertising and affiliate programs. By engaging in a portfolio based revenue model, our emphasis is on diversifying revenue streams and creating ongoing direct consumer relationships.

 

We have a substantial inventory of content featuring unpublished photographs, negatives, slides, videos, and articles across various genres. We believe we have a competitive advantage in the ownership of such merchandising rights of such content which allows us to sell or license these properties. Additionally, we also develop our own transmedia assets, such as film, television, digital shorts, books, and comic series that we produce and distribute across multiple platforms and formats.

 

The core elements of our strategy are:

 

  Portfolio Theory. Our diversified and eclectic portfolio of brands reaches across different consumer markets in the digital space. By implementing genre-specific websites with diversified content, we achieve higher search engine optimization.

  Scalability. Brands are chosen for their overlapping potential and their ability to drive revenues across the entire portfolio. Furthermore, we utilize a scalable horizontal infrastructure that can make it through the seasons of digital trends as niche brands, or verticals, are easily plugged in and leveraged. All verticals are overseen by the same team and ideology focusing primarily on generating revenue from all published content.

  Recurrence. We believe that building consumer loyalty through the creation and publication of digital content that our audiences can engage in will allow for revenue opportunity at every stage of the consumer's digital life cycle.

 

Transmedia

 

As part of our strategy, the company will create content in collaboration with other production and media companies that can be leveraged beyond digital media.  These transmedia assets are generally at the center of different mediums such as IP that can be translated as a digital short, a book, or in the most extreme example, a film/tv series. Jerrick Ventures may have certain rights to content as well as other forms of IP such as merchandising rights. Jerrick Ventures will generally charge a production fee for collaborating in the project.

Our Brands

 

Each brand in our portfolio targets specific consumer markets or genres. Our current brands include the following:

 

Filthy Gorgeous

 

Filthy Gorgeous Media, LLC, our wholly owned subsidiary (“Filthy Gorgeous”), bridges a vintage adult genre similar to Playboy Magazine with a contemporary artistic perspective, creating a brand that presents controversial perspectives in the genre of erotica and sex.

The acquired art includes original oil paintings created by Guccione, photographs, sketches, written works, and illustrations. Guccione is the inspiration behind Filthy Gorgeous.

 

Filthy Gorgeous maintains an internet site, www.FilthyGorgeousMedia.com, that targets male and female users interested in the vintage erotica genre. Filthy Gorgeous has received notable mentions from several recognizable outlets such as the NY Post, Variety, Daily Mail and Vice. . Filthy Gorgeous’ products include video downloads, image downloads, photographs, art, magazines, lingerie, apparel, and signed and unsigned collectibles.

 

OMNI Reboot

 

In 2012, we acquired the rights to sell certain art and written works that appeared in OMNI, an iconic science fiction magazine published in the U.S. and the U.K. from 1978 to 1995 that contained articles on science, parapsychology, and short works of science fiction and fantasy.

 

In its initial run, Omni published a number of stories that have become genre classics, such as Orson Scott Card's "Unaccompanied Sonata", William Gibson's "Burning Chrome", "Johnny Mnemonic", and George R. R. Martin's "Sandkings". The magazine also featured Stephen King's short story "The End of the Whole Mess". Omni also brought the works of numerous painters to the attention of a large audience, such as H. R. Giger, De EsSchwertberger and Rallé.

 

OMNI serves as the inspiration for OMNI Reboot, LLC (“OMNI Reboot”), our wholly owned subsidiary.

 

We characterize OMNI Reboot as the intersection of science, technology, art, culture, design, and metaphysics.

Protecting our Content from Copyright Theft

 

The theft of pictures, video and other entertainment content presents a significant challenge to our industry, and we take a number of steps to address this concern. Where possible, we make use of technological protection tools, such as encryption, to protect our content. Notwithstanding these efforts and the many legal protections that exist to combat piracy, the proliferation of content theft and technological tools with which to carry it out continue to escalate. The failure to obtain enhanced legal protections and enforcement tools could make it more difficult for us to adequately protect our intellectual property, which could negatively impact its value.

 

Intellectual Property

 

We regard our technology and other proprietary rights as essential to our business. We rely on trade secret, confidentiality procedures, contract provisions, and trademark law to protect our technology and intellectual property. We have also entered into confidentiality agreements with our consultants and corporate partners and intend to control access to and distribution of our products, documentation, and other proprietary information.

 

We have two trademark applications pending with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for “FILTHY GORGEOUS” and "OMNI REBOOT".

 

Competition

 

We face significant competition from many other websites. We face formidable competition in every aspect of our business, and particularly from other companies that seek to connect people with information on the web and provide them with relevant advertising. Although we face competition, the majority of our content is timeless, as opposed to many of our competitors, who focus mainly on providing timely content. Competitive factors include:

 

  community cohesion, interaction and size;

  website or mobile platform and application ease-of-use and accessibility;

user engagement;

  system reliability;

  reliability of delivery and payment; and

  quality of content.

 

We may be unable to compete successfully against current and future competitors. Some current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, larger user bases and greater brand recognition in other internet sectors than we do. Other online sites with similar business models may be acquired by, receive investments from, or enter into other commercial relationships with well-established and well-financed companies. As a result, some of our competitors with other revenue sources may be able to devote more resources to marketing and promotional campaigns, adopt more aggressive pricing policies and devote more resources to website, mobile platforms and applications and systems development than we can.

 

 5 

 

In addition we compete with internet advertising companies, particularly in the areas of pay-for-performance and keyword-targeted internet advertising. Also, we may compete with companies that sell products and services online because these companies, like us, are trying to attract users to their web sites to search for information about products and services and content like ours.

 

We also compete with destination web sites that seek to increase their search-related traffic. These destination web sites may include those operated by internet access providers, such as cable and DSL service providers. Because our users need to access our services through internet access providers, they have direct relationships with these providers. If an access provider or a computer or computing device manufacturer offers online services that compete with ours, the user may find it more convenient to use the services of the access provider or manufacturer. In addition, the access provider or manufacturer may make it hard to access our services by not listing them in the access provider’s or manufacturer’s own menu of offerings. Also, because the access provider gathers information from the user in connection with the establishment of a billing relationship, the access provider may be more effective than we are in tailoring services and advertisements to the specific tastes of the user.

 

There has been a trend toward industry consolidation among our competitors, and so smaller competitors today may become larger competitors in the future. If our competitors are more successful than we are at generating traffic, our revenues may decline.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

RISK FACTORS

 

RISKS RELATED TO JERRICK MEDIA’S BUSINESS

 

We have a history of operating losses and we cannot guarantee that we can ever achieve sustained profitability.

 

We have recorded a net loss attributable to common stockholders in most reporting periods since our inception. Losses are expected to continue for the foreseeable future. The Company expects to continue to have development costs as it develops its next generation of products. We may never achieve profitable operations or positive cash flow.

 

We are not profitable and may never be profitable.

 

Since inception through the present, we have been dependent on raising capital to support our working capital needs. During this same period, we have recorded net accumulated losses and are yet to achieve profitability. Our ability to achieve profitability depends upon many factors, including its ability to develop and commercialize our websites. There can be no assurance that we will ever achieve any significant revenues or profitable operations. 

 

 6 

 

Our operating expenses exceed our revenues and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

 

We are in an early stage of our development and we have not generated sufficient revenues to offset our operating expenses. Our operating expenses will likely continue to exceed our operating income for the foreseeable future, until such time as we are able to monetize our brands and generate substantial revenues, particularly as we undertake payment of the increased costs of operating as a public company.

 

We have a limited operating history.

 

The Company has been in existence for approximately two years. Our limited operating history means that there is a high degree of uncertainty in our ability to: (i) develop and commercialize our products; (ii) achieve market acceptance; or (iii) respond to competition. Additionally, even if we do implement our business plan, we may not be successful. No assurances can be given as to exactly when, if at all, we will be able to recognize profits high enough to sustain our business. We face all the risks inherent in a new business, including the expenses, difficulties, complications, and delays frequently encountered in connection with conducting operations, including capital requirements. Given our limited operating history, we may be unable to effectively implement our business plan, which would result in a loss of your investment. 

 

We will need additional capital, which may be difficult to raise as a result of our limited operating history or any number of other reasons.

 

We expect that we will have adequate financing for the next 12 months. However, in the event that we exceed our expected growth, we would need to raise additional capital. There is no assurance that additional equity or debt financing will be available to us when needed, on acceptable terms or even at all. Our limited operating history makes investor evaluation and an estimation of our future performance substantially more difficult. As a result, investors may be unwilling to invest in us or such investment may be on terms or conditions which are not acceptable. In the event that we are not able to secure financing, we may have to scale back our growth plans or cease operations.

 

We depend on our key management personnel and the loss of their services could adversely affect our business.

 

We place substantial reliance upon the efforts and abilities of Jeremy Frommer, our Chief Executive Officer, and our other executive officers and directors. Though no individual is indispensable, the loss of the services of these executive officers could have a material adverse effect on our business, operations, revenues or prospects. We do not currently maintain key man life insurance on the lives of these individuals.

 

We have not adopted various corporate governance measures, and as a result stockholders may have limited protections against interested director transactions, conflicts of interest and similar matters.

 

Recent Federal legislation, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, has resulted in the adoption of various corporate governance measures designed to promote the integrity of corporate management and the securities markets. Because our securities are not yet listed on a national securities exchange, we are not required to adopt these corporate governance measures and have not done so voluntarily in order to avoid incurring the additional costs associated with such measures. Among these measures is the establishment of independent committees of the Board of Directors. However, to the extent a public market develops for our securities, such legislation will require us to make changes to our current corporate governance practices. Those changes may be costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, the absence of the governance measures referred to above with respect to our Company may leave our shareholders with more limited protection in connection with interested director transactions, conflicts of interest and similar matters.

 

We face intense competition. If we do not provide digital content that is useful to users, we may not remain competitive, and our potential revenues and operating results could be adversely affected.

 

Our business is rapidly evolving and intensely competitive, and is subject to changing technologies, shifting user needs, and frequent introductions of new products and services. Our ability to compete successfully depends heavily on providing digital content that is useful and enjoyable for our users and delivering our content through innovative technologies in the marketplace.

 

 7 

 

We have many competitors in the digital content creation industry and media companies. Our current and potential competitors range from large and established companies to emerging start-ups. Established companies have longer operating histories and more established relationships with customers and users, and they can use their experience and resources in ways that could affect our competitive position, including by making acquisitions, investing aggressively in research and development, aggressively initiating intellectual property claims (whether or not meritorious) and competing aggressively for advertisers and websites. Emerging start-ups may be able to innovate and provide products and services faster than we can.

 

Additionally, our operating results would suffer if our digital content is not appropriately timed with market opportunities, or if our digital content is not effectively brought to market. As technology continues to develop, our competitors may be able to offer user experiences that are, or that are seen to be, substantially similar to or better than ours. This may force us to compete in different ways and expend significant resources in order to remain competitive. If our competitors are more successful than we are in developing compelling content or in attracting and retaining users and advertisers, our revenues and operating results could be adversely affected.

 

We face competition from traditional media companies, and we may not be included in the advertising budgets of large advertisers, which could harm our operating results.

 

In addition to internet companies, we face competition from companies that offer traditional media advertising opportunities. Most large advertisers have set advertising budgets, a very small portion of which is allocated to Internet advertising. We expect that large advertisers will continue to focus most of their advertising efforts on traditional media. If we fail to convince these companies to spend a portion of their advertising budgets with us, or if our existing advertisers reduce the amount they spend on our programs, our operating results would be harmed.

 

Our business depends on strong brands and relationships, and if we are not able to maintain our relationships and enhance our brands, our ability to expand our base of users, advertisers and affiliates will be impaired and our business and operating results could be harmed.

 

We believe that maintaining and enhancing the “Filthy Gorgeous”, “OMNI Reboot”, “GeekRoom”, “Corporate Culture”, “iLongevity”, "VivaToday" brands is critical to expanding our base of users, advertisers and affiliates. Maintaining and enhancing our brands' profiles may require us to make substantial investments and these investments may not be successful. If we fail to promote and maintain the “Filthy Gorgeous”, “OMNI Reboot”, “GeekRoom”, “Corporate Culture” and “iLongevity” brands' profiles, or if we incur excessive expenses in this effort, our business and operating results could be harmed. We anticipate that, as our market becomes increasingly competitive, maintaining and enhancing our brands' profiles may become increasingly difficult and expensive. Maintaining and enhancing our brands will depend largely on our ability to be a technology leader and to continue to provide attractive products and services, which we may not do successfully.

 

We need to manage growth in operations to maximize our potential growth and achieve our expected revenues and our failure to manage growth will cause a disruption of our operations, resulting in the failure to generate revenue.

 

In order to maximize potential growth in our current and potential markets, we believe that we must expand our marketing operations. This expansion will place a significant strain on our management and our operational, accounting, and information systems. We expect that we will need to continue to improve our financial controls, operating procedures, and management information systems. We will also need to effectively train, motivate, and manage our employees. Our failure to manage our growth could disrupt our operations and ultimately prevent us from generating the revenues we expect.

 

In order to achieve the general strategies of our company we need to maintain and search for hard-working employees who have innovative initiatives, while at the same time, keep a close eye on any and all expanding opportunities in our marketplace.

 

We plan to generate a significant portion of our revenues from advertising and affiliate sales relationships, and a reduction in spending by or loss of advertisers and general decrease in online spending could adversely harm our business.

 

We plan to generate a substantial portion of our revenues from advertisers. Our advertisers may be able to terminate prospective contracts with us at any time. Advertisers will not continue to do business with us if their investment in advertising with us does not generate sales leads, and ultimately customers, or if we do not deliver their advertisements in an appropriate and effective manner. If we are unable to remain competitive and provide value to our advertisers, they may stop placing ads with us, which would adversely affect our revenues and business. In addition, expenditures by advertisers tend to be cyclical, reflecting overall economic conditions and budgeting and buying patterns. Adverse macroeconomic conditions can also have a material negative impact on the demand for advertising and cause our advertisers to reduce the amounts they spend on advertising, which could adversely affect our revenues and business.

Security breaches could harm our business.

 

Security breaches have become more prevalent in the technology industry. We believe that we take reasonable steps to protect the security, integrity and confidentiality of the information we collect, use, store and disclose, but there is no guarantee that inadvertent (e.g., software bugs or other technical malfunctions, employee error or malfeasance, or other factors) or unauthorized data access or use will not occur despite our efforts. Although we have not experienced any material security breaches to date, we may in the future experience attempts to disable our systems or to breach the security of our systems. Techniques used to obtain unauthorized access to personal information, confidential information and/or the systems on which such information are stored and/or to sabotage systems change frequently and generally are not recognized until launched against a target. As a result, we may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventative measures.

 

If an actual or perceived security breach occurs, the market perception of our security measures could be harmed and we could lose sales and customers and/or suffer other negative consequences to our business. A security breach could adversely affect the digital content experience and cause the loss or corruption of data, which could harm our business, financial condition and operating results. Any failure to maintain the security of our infrastructure could result in loss of personal information and/or other confidential information, damage to our reputation and customer relationships, early termination of our contracts and other business losses, indemnification of our customers, financial penalties, litigation, regulatory investigations and other significant liabilities. In the event of a major third-party security incident, we may incur losses in excess of their insurance coverage.

 

Moreover, if a high profile security breach occurs with respect to us or another digital entertainment company, our customers and potential customers may lose trust in the security of our business model generally, which could adversely impact our ability to retain existing customers or attract new ones.

 

The laws and regulations concerning data privacy and data security are continually evolving; our or our platform providers’ actual or perceived failure to comply with these laws and regulations could harm our business.

 

Customers view our content online, using third-party platforms and networks and on mobile devices. We collect and store significant amounts of information about our customers—both personally identifying and non-personally identifying information. We are subject to laws from a variety of jurisdictions regarding privacy and the protection of this player information. For example, the European Union (EU) has traditionally taken a broader view than the United States and certain other jurisdictions as to what is considered personal information and has imposed greater obligations under data privacy regulations. The U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) also regulates the collection, use and disclosure of personal information from children under 13 years of age. While none of our content is directed at children under 13 years of age, if COPPA were to apply to us, failure to comply with COPPA may increase our costs, subject us to expensive and distracting government investigations and could result in substantial fines.

 

Data privacy protection laws are rapidly changing and likely will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The U.S. government, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Commerce, is continuing to review the need for greater regulation over the collection of personal information and information about consumer behavior on the Internet and on mobile devices and the EU has proposed reforms to its existing data protection legal framework. Various government and consumer agencies worldwide have also called for new regulation and changes in industry practices. In addition, in some cases, we are dependent upon our platform providers to solicit, collect and provide us with information regarding our players that is necessary for compliance with these various types of regulations.

Customer interaction with our content is subject to our privacy policy and terms of service. If we fail to comply with our posted privacy policy or terms of service or if we fail to comply with existing privacy-related or data protection laws and regulations, it could result in proceedings or litigation against us by governmental authorities or others, which could result in fines or judgments against us, damage our reputation, impact our financial condition and harm our business. If regulators, the media or consumers raise any concerns about our privacy and data protection or consumer protection practices, even if unfounded, this could also result in fines or judgments against us, damage our reputation, and negatively impact our financial condition and damage our business.

 

In the area of information security and data protection, many jurisdictions have passed laws requiring notification when there is a security breach for personal data or requiring the adoption of minimum information security standards that are often vaguely defined and difficult to implement. Our security measures and standards may not be sufficient to protect personal information and we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent security breaches. A security breach that compromises personal information could harm our reputation and result in a loss of confidence in our products and ultimately in a loss of customers, which could adversely affect our business and impact our financial condition. This could also subject us to liability under applicable security breach-related laws and regulations and could result in additional compliance costs, costs related to regulatory inquiries and investigations, and an inability to conduct our business.

 

If any of our relationships with internet search websites terminate, if such websites' methodologies are modified or if we are outbid by competitors, traffic to our websites could decline.

 

We depend in part on various internet search websites, such as Google.com, Bing.com, Yahoo.com and other websites to direct a significant amount of traffic to our websites. Search websites typically provide two types of search results, algorithmic and purchased listings. Algorithmic listings generally are determined and displayed as a result of a set of unpublished formulas designed by search engine companies in their discretion. Purchased listings generally are displayed if particular word searches are performed on a search engine. We rely on both algorithmic and purchased search results, as well as advertising on other internet websites, to direct a substantial share of visitors to our websites and to direct traffic to the advertiser customers we serve. If these internet search websites modify or terminate their relationship with us or we are outbid by our competitors for purchased listings, meaning that our competitors pay a higher price to be listed above us in a list of search results, traffic to our websites could decline. Such a decline in traffic could affect our ability to generate advertising revenue and could reduce the desirability of advertising on our websites.

 

Our business involves risks of liability claims arising from our media content, which could adversely affect our ability to generate revenue and could increase our operating expenses.

 

As a distributor of media content, we face potential liability for defamation, invasion of privacy, negligence, copyright or trademark infringement, obscenity, violation of rights of publicity and/or obscenity laws and other claims based on the nature and content of the materials distributed. These types of claims have been brought, sometimes successfully, against broadcasters, publishers, online services and other disseminators of media content. Any imposition of liability that is not covered by insurance or is in excess of our insurance coverage could have a material adverse effect on us. In addition, measures to reduce our exposure to liability in connection with content available through our internet websites could require us to take steps that would substantially limit the attractiveness of our internet websites and/or their availability in certain geographic areas, which could adversely affect our ability to generate revenue and could increase our operating expenses.

 

Intellectual property litigation could expose us to significant costs and liabilities and thus negatively affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We may be subject to claims of infringement of third party patents and trademarks and other violations of third party intellectual property rights. Intellectual property disputes are generally time-consuming and expensive to litigate or settle, and the outcome of such disputes is uncertain and difficult to predict. The existence of such disputes may require us to set-aside substantial reserves, and has the potential to significantly affect our overall financial standing. To the extent that claims against us are successful, they may subject us to substantial liability, and we may have to pay substantial monetary damages, change aspects of our business model, and/or discontinue any of our services or practices that are found to be in violation of another party's rights. Such outcomes may severely restrict or hinder ongoing business operations and impact the value of our business. Successful claims against us could also result in us having to seek a license to continue our practices. Under such conditions, a license may or may not be offered or otherwise made available to us. If a license is made available to us, the cost of the license may significantly increase our operating burden and expenses, potentially resulting in a negative effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

 10 

 

Although we have been and are currently involved in multiple areas of commerce, internet services, and high technology where there is a substantial risk of future patent litigation, we have not obtained insurance for patent infringement losses. If we are unsuccessful at resolving pending and future patent litigation in a reasonable and affordable manner, it could disrupt our business and operations, including by negatively impacting areas of commerce or putting us at a competitive disadvantage.

 

If we are unable to obtain or maintain key website addresses, our ability to operate and grow our business may be impaired.

 

Our website addresses, or domain names, are critical to our business. We currently own more than 252 domain names. However, the regulation of domain names is subject to change, and it may be difficult for us to prevent third parties from acquiring domain names that are similar to ours, that infringe our trademarks or that otherwise decrease the value of our brands. If we are unable to obtain or maintain key domain names for the various areas of our business, our ability to operate and grow our business may be impaired.

 

We may have difficulty scaling and adapting our existing network infrastructure to accommodate increased traffic and technology advances or changing business requirements, which could cause us to incur significant expenses and lead to the loss of users and advertisers.

 

To be successful, our network infrastructure has to perform well and be reliable. The greater the user traffic and the greater the complexity of our products and services, the more computer power we will need. We could incur substantial costs if we need to modify our websites or our infrastructure to adapt to technological changes. If we do not maintain our network infrastructure successfully, or if we experience inefficiencies and operational failures, the quality of our products and services and our users' experience could decline. Maintaining an efficient and technologically advanced network infrastructure is particularly critical to our business because of the pictorial nature of the products and services provided on our websites. A decline in quality could damage our reputation and lead us to lose current and potential users and advertisers. Cost increases, loss of traffic or failure to accommodate new technologies or changing business requirements could harm our operating results and financial condition.

 

Because some of our brands contain adult content, companies providing products and services on which we rely may refuse to do business with us.

 

Many companies that provide products and services we need are concerned that associating with us could lead to their becoming the target of negative publicity campaigns by public interest groups and boycotts of their products and services. As a result of these concerns, these companies may be reluctant to enter into or continue business relationships with us. There can be no assurance that we will be able to maintain our existing business relationships with the companies, domestic or international, that currently provide us with services and products. Our inability to maintain such business relationships, or to find replacement service providers, would materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. We could be forced to enter into business arrangements on terms less favorable to us than we might otherwise obtain, which could lead to our doing business with less competitive terms, higher transaction costs and more inefficient operations than if we were able to maintain such business relationships or find replacement service providers.

 

Our business is exposed to risks associated with online commerce security and credit card fraud.

 

Consumer concerns over the security of transactions conducted on the internet or the privacy of users may inhibit the growth of the internet and online commerce. To transmit confidential information such as customer credit card numbers securely, we rely on encryption and authentication technology. Unanticipated events or developments could result in a compromise or breach of the systems we use to protect customer transaction data. Furthermore, our servers may also be vulnerable to viruses and other attacks transmitted via the internet.  As a payment processor, we are required to comply with PCI DSS and a credit card information breach could subject us to penalties or fines, litigation, regulatory investigation or regulatory action. While we proactively check for intrusions into our infrastructure, a new and undetected virus could cause a service disruption. Under current credit card practices, we may be held liable for fraudulent credit card transactions and other payment disputes with customers. A failure to control fraudulent credit card transactions adequately would adversely affect our business.

RISKS RELATED TO OUR COMMON STOCK

 

We may be subject to penny stock rules which will make the shares of our common stock more difficult to sell.

 

We may be subject now and in the future to the SEC’s “penny stock” rules if our shares common stock sell below $5.00 per share. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00. The penny stock rules require broker-dealers to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer must also provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its sales person, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and sales person compensation information must be given to the customer or ally or in writing prior to completing the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation.

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction the broker dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchase rand receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. The penny stock rules are burden some and may reduce purchases of any offerings and reduce the trading activity for shares of our common stock. As long as our shares of common stock are subject to the penny stock rules, the holders of such shares of common stock may find it more difficult to sell their securities.

 

Shares of our currently issued and outstanding stock may become freely tradable pursuant to Rule 144 and may dilute the market and have a depressive effect on the price of our shares of common stock.

 

A substantial majority of our outstanding shares of common stock and preferred stock are “restricted securities” with in the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act. As restricted shares, these shares may be resold only pursuant to an effective registration statement or under the requirements of Rule 144 or other applicable exemptions from registration under the Act and as required under applicable state securities laws. Rule 144 provides in essence that an Affiliate (as such term is defined in Rule 144(a)(1)) of an issuer who has held restricted securities for a period of atleast six months (one year after filing Form 10 information with the SEC for shell companies and former shell companies) may, under certain conditions, sell every three months, in brokerage transactions, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of 1% of a company’s outstanding shares of common stock or the average weekly trading volume during the four calendar weeks prior to the sale (the four calendar week rule does not apply to companies quote don the OTC Bulletin Board). Rule 144 also permits, under certain circumstances, the sale of securities, without any limitation, by a person who is not an Affiliate of the Company and who has satisfied a one-year holding period. A sale under Rule 144 or under any other exemption from the Act, if available, or pursuant to subsequent registrations of our shares of common stock, may have a depressive effect upon the price of our shares of common stock in any active market that may develop.

 

You will experience dilution of your ownership interest because of the future issuance of additional shares of our common stock and our preferred stock.

 

In the future, we may issue our authorized but previously un issued equity securities, resulting in the dilution of the ownership interests of our present stockholders. We are currently authorized to issue an aggregate of 320,000,000 shares of capital stock consisting of 300,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 and 20,000,000 shares of blank check preferred stock, par value $0.001.

 

We may also issue additional shares of our common stock or other securities that are convertible in to or exercisable for common stock in connection with hiring or retaining employees or consultants, future acquisitions, future sales of our securities for capital raising purposes, or for other business purposes. The future issuance of any such additional shares of our common stock or other securities may create down ward pressure on the trading price of our common stock. There can be no assurance that we will not be required to issue additional shares, warrants or other convertible securities in the future in conjunction with hiring or retaining employees or consultants, future acquisitions, future sales of our securities for capital raising purposes or for other business purposes, including at a price (or exercise prices) below the price at which shares of our common stock are trading.

 

 12 

 

We do not expect to pay dividends and investors should not buy our common stock expecting to receive dividends.

 

We have not paid any dividends on our common stock in the past, and do not anticipate that we will declare or pay any dividends in the foreseeable future. Consequently, investors will only realize an economic gain on their investment in our common stock if the price appreciates. Investors should not purchase our common stock expecting to receive cash dividends. Because we do not pay dividends, and there may be limited trading, investors may not have any manner to liquidate or receive any payment on their investment. Therefore, our failure to pay dividends may cause investors to not see any return on investment even if we are successful in our business operations. In addition, because we do not pay dividends we may have trouble raising additional funds, which could affect our ability to expand our business operations.

(c) Dividend Information

 

We have not paid any cash dividends to our holders of common stock. The declaration of any future cash dividends is at the discretion of our board of directors and depends upon our earnings, if any, our capital requirements and financial position, our general economic conditions, and other pertinent conditions. It is our present intention not to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future, but rather to reinvest earnings, if any, in our business operations.

 

(d) Securities Authorized for Issuance under Equity Compensation Plans  

 

There are currently 600,000 outstanding options to purchase our securities.

 

Option Plan

 

Pursuant to the Merger, on February 5, 2016, the Company assumed Jerrick’s 2015 Stock Incentive and Award Plan (the “Plan”) which provides for the issuance of up to 18,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

The purpose of the Plan is to provide additional incentive to those officers, employees, consultants and non-employee directors of the Company and its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates whose contributions are essential to the growth and success of the Company’s business.

 

Eligible recipients of option awards are employees, officers, consultants or directors (including non-employee directors) of the Company or of any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of the Company. Upon recommendation from the board or the Compensation Committee, the board has the authority to grant to any eligible recipient any options, restricted stock or other awards valued in whole or in part by reference to, or otherwise based on, our common stock.

 

The provisions of each option granted need not be the same with respect to each option recipient. Option recipients shall enter into award agreements with us, in such form as the board shall determine.

 

The Plan shall be administered by the Compensation Committee consisting of two or more independent, non-employee and outside directors. In the absence of such a Committee, the board of the Company shall administer the Plan.

 

Each Option shall contain the following material terms:

 

  (i) the purchase price of each share of Common Stock with respect to Incentive Options shall be determined by the Committee at the time of grant, shall not be less than 100% of the Fair Market Value (defined as the closing price on the final trading day immediately prior to the grant on the principal exchange or quotation system on which the Common Stock is listed or quoted, as applicable) of the Common Stock of the Company, provided that if the recipient of the Option owns more than ten percent (10%) of the total combined voting power of the Company, the exercise price shall be at least 110% of the Fair Market Value;

 

 14 

 

  (ii) The purchase price of each share of Common Stock purchasable under a Non-qualified Option shall be at least 100% of the Fair Market Value of such share of Common Stock on the date the Non-qualified Option is granted, unless the Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion, determines to set the purchase price of such Non-qualified Option below Fair Market Value.

  (iii) the term of each Option shall be fixed by the Committee, provided that such Option shall not be exercisable more than five (5) years after the date such Option is granted, and provided further that with respect to an Incentive Option, if the recipient owns more than ten percent (10%) of the total combined voting power of the Company, the Incentive Option shall not be exercisable more than five (5) years after the date such Incentive Option is granted;

  (iv) subject to acceleration in the event of a Change of Control of the Company (as further described in the Plan), the period during which the Options vest shall be designated by the Committee or, in the absence of any Option vesting periods designated by the Committee at the time of grant, shall vest and become exercisable in equal amounts on each fiscal quarter of the Company through the four (4) year anniversary of the date on which the Option was granted;

  (vi) no Option is transferable and each is exercisable only by the recipient of such Option except in the event of the death of the recipient; and

  (vii) with respect to Incentive Options, the aggregate Fair Market Value of Common Stock exercisable for the first time during any calendar year shall not exceed $100,000.

 

Each award of Restricted Stock is subject to the following material terms:

Overview

 

Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. (“we,” “us,” the “Company,” or “Jerrick Media”) (formerly Great Plains Holdings, Inc. or “GTPH”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on December 30, 1999 under the name LILM, Inc.

Historically, the Company has principally engaged in manufacture and marketing of the LiL Marc a plastic boys’ toilet-training device which we discontinued as of December 31, 2014.

 

Real Estate

 

As of December 31, 2015 we had acquired a total of seven properties, five are in Florida and two are in South Carolina, for a total net investment of approximately $463,817.

Bonjoe Gourmet Chips

 

In January 2015, we agreed to acquire a 51% interest in Bonjoe Gourmet Chips LLC (“Bonjoe”), a producer and seller of over 40 flavors of gourmet potato chips. We agreed to acquire this interest for stock and a working capital loan with an option to acquire another 20% interest, subject to the results of an in-store blitz marketing campaign featuring Bonjoe’s gourmet chips. As of March 31, 2015, the Company determined it would no longer pursue this opportunity.

 

We define our accounting periods as follows:

 

  “fiscal 2014”—January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014, and
  “fiscal 2015”—January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following comparative analysis on results of operations was based primarily on the comparative audited financial statements, footnotes and related information for the periods identified below and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes to those statements that are included elsewhere in this report.

 

Revenue

 

Total revenue increased $46,841 to $58,253 for fiscal 2015 compared to $11,412 in fiscal 2014. This increase in total revenue is primarily due to rent revenues generated from our real estate acquisitions.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses for fiscal 2015 increased by $21,527 to $339,292, compared to fiscal 2014, primarily as a result of an increase of $26,814 in general and administrative expenses related to property acquisition costs and accounting and legal fees, and a $6,925 increase in depreciation and amortization related to our recent real estate acquisitions. These increases were offset by a decrease of $12,212 in impairment losses on investments. 

 

Other Expenses

 

Other expenses for fiscal 2015 increased by $47,158 to $75,520, compared to fiscal 2014 primarily as a result interest expenses stemming from our increased borrowings partially offset by investment income of $393 and other income of $1,000. We expect our interest expenses to vary depending on the amount of properties we acquire, if any.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

The income on discontinued operations for fiscal 2015 was $13,620 compared to a loss of $43,325 in fiscal 2014 as a result of our discontinuance of the Lil Marc operations as of December 31, 2014.

 

Net Loss

 

The net loss for fiscal 2015 was $342,939, a decrease of $35,101 compared to $378,040 in fiscal 2014, due to increases in revenue and income from discontinued operations, partially offset by increases in operating and other expenses.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash requirements.  As of December 31, 2015, our working capital amounted to $572,579, a reduction of $309,327 as compared to working capital of $881,906 as of December 31, 2014. This decrease is primarily a result of our acquisition of real estate and other investments and net loss. Working capital at December 31, 2015 included primarily cash and cash equivalents of $573,572 compared to $969,094 at December 31, 2014.

 

Net cash used in continuing operating activities was $288,313 during fiscal 2015 compared to $295,407 in fiscal 2014. The decrease in cash used in operating activities is primarily attributable to our reduction in net loss, amounts recorded for depreciation, debt discount amortization, and impairment loss on investments, and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses.

 

Net cash used in continuing investing activities during fiscal 2015 was $109,716 compared to $368,655 in fiscal 2014. The decrease was primarily a result of a reduction in purchases of property and equipment and investments during fiscal 2015 compared to those in fiscal 2014, offset by loans made by the Company during fiscal 2015. The decrease was also due to the Company making payments for deposists ($11,500) and investments ($30,000) in 2014, compared to no related payments in 2015.

 

 17 

 

Net cash provided by continuing financing activities during fiscal 2015 was $991 compared to $129,000 in fiscal 2014. The decrease was primarily a result of an increase in proceeds from issuance of preferred stock for $99,990 in fiscal 2015 compared to $6,000 in fiscal 2014. This increase was partially offset by the repayments of $98,999 in convertible debt in fiscal 2015. During fiscal 2014, the Company received proceeds of $111,000 and $12,000 from the issuance of convertible debt and common stock, respectively.

 

Cash Requirements

 

Our ability to fund our growth and meet our obligations on a timely basis is dependent on our ability to match our available financial resources to our growth strategy which includes acquisitions for cash or a combination of cash and debt. The decisions we make with regard to acquisitions drive the level of capital required and the level of our financial obligations.

 

If we are unable to generate cash flow from operations and successfully raise sufficient additional capital through future debt and equity financings or strategic and collaborative ventures with potential partners, we would likely have to reduce the size and scope of our acquisitions. We have analyzed our liquidity requirements and have determined that we have sufficient liquidity to execute our business plan for the next 12 months.

 

Convertible Notes

 

On August 22, 2014 (the “August Issuance Date”), we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “August Purchase Agreement”) with KBM Worldwide, Inc. (“KBM”) (collectively, the “Parties”), whereby KBM agreed to invest $68,000 (“August Note Purchase Price”) into our Company in exchange for our issuance of a convertible promissory note, in the original principal amount of $68,000, which bears interest at 8% per annum (the “August Note”). All outstanding principal and accrued interest on the August Note is due and payable on the maturity date, which is May 18, 2015 (the “August Note Maturity Date”).  The August Note Purchase Price was paid in cash to us by KBM on August 22, 2014. Any amount of principal or interest that is due under the August Note, which is not paid by the August Note Maturity Date, will bear interest at the rate of 22% per annum until it is paid (“Default Interest”).  The August Note is convertible by KBM into shares of our common stock at any time during the conversion period, which begins 180 days after the August Issuance Date and ends on the later of (i) the August Note Maturity Date and the (ii) date of payment of the default amount (“August Note Conversion Period”). The conversion price for each share is 61% multiplied by the lowest average three day market price of our common stock during the 10 trading days prior to the relevant notice of conversion.

 

The August Note can be prepaid by us at a premium as follows: (a) between 0 and 30 days after issuance – 110% of the total outstanding amount; (b) between 31 and 60 days after issuance – 115% of the total outstanding amount; (c) between 61 and 90 days after issuance – 120% of the total outstanding amount; (d) between 91 and 120 days after issuance – 125% of the total outstanding amount; and (e) between 121 and 150 days after issuance – 130% of the total outstanding amount; and (f) between 151 and 180 days after issuance – 135% of the total outstanding amount.  After the initial 180 period from the Issuance Date, we do not have a right of prepayment.

 

All amounts due under the August Note become immediately due and payable by us upon the occurrence of an event of default, including but not limited to (i) our failure to pay the amounts due at maturity, (ii) our failure to issue shares of our common stock upon any conversion of the August Note, (iii) a breach of the covenants, representations or warranties under the August Note, (iv) the appointment of a trustee, a judgment against us in excess of $50,000 (subject to a cure period), a liquidation of our Company or the filing of a bankruptcy petition, (v) failure to remain current in our reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or the removal of our common stock from quotation on an over the counter quotation service or equivalent exchange, (vi) any restatement of our financial statements, or (vii) a reverse stock split without prior notice to KBM.

 

 18 

 

On November 17, 2014 (the “November Issuance Date”), we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “November Purchase Agreement”) with KBM, whereby KBM agreed to invest $43,000 (the “November Purchase Price”) into our Company in exchange for our issuance of a convertible promissory note, in the original principal amount of $43,000, which bears interest at 8% per annum (the “November Note”).  All outstanding principal and accrued interest on the November Note is due and payable on the maturity date, which is August 19, 2015 (the “November Note Maturity Date”). The November Purchase Price was paid in cash to us on November 25, 2014, the effective date of the November Purchase Agreement and the November Note. Any amount of principal or interest that is due under the November Note, which is not paid by the November Note Maturity Date, will bear interest at the rate of 22% per annum until it is paid.  The November Note is convertible by KBM into shares of our common stock at any time during the conversion period, which begins 180 days after the November Note Date and ends on the later of (i) the November Note Maturity Date and the (ii) date of payment of the default amount.  The conversion price for each share is 61% multiplied by the lowest average three day market price of our common stock during the 10 trading days prior to the relevant notice of conversion.

 

The November Note can be prepaid by us at a premium as follows: (a) between 0 and 30 days after issuance – 110% of the total outstanding amount; (b) between 31 and 60 days after issuance – 115% of the total outstanding amount; (c) between 61 and 90 days after issuance – 120% of the total outstanding amount; (d) between 91 and 120 days after issuance – 125% of the total outstanding amount; and (e) between 121 and 150 days after issuance – 130% of the total outstanding amount; and (f) between 151 and 180 days after issuance – 135% of the total outstanding amount. After the initial 180 period from the November Note Issuance Date, we do not have a right of prepayment.

 

All amounts due under the November Note become immediately due and payable by us upon the occurrence of an event of default, including but not limited to (i) our failure to pay the amounts due at maturity, (ii) our failure to issue shares of our common stock upon any conversion of the November Note, (iii) our breach of the covenants, representations or warranties under the November Note, (iv) the appointment of a trustee, a judgment against the us in excess of $50,000 (subject to a cure period), our liquidation or the filing of a bankruptcy petition by us or against us, (v) our failure to remain current in our reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, (vi) the removal of our common stock from quotation on an over the counter quotation service or equivalent exchange, (vii) any restatement of our financial statements, or (viii) a reverse stock split without prior notice to KBM.

 

Both notes issued on August 22, 2014 and November 17, 2014, respectively, were paid in full in fiscal 2015.

 

Inflation

 

In the opinion of management, inflation has not and will not have a material effect on our operations in the immediate future.  Management will continue to monitor inflation and evaluate the possible future effects of inflation on our business and operations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Under Commission regulations, we are required to disclose our off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, such as changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors. As of December 31, 2015, we have no off-balance sheet arrangements. 

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We believe that the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating this “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation.”

 

Use of Estimates

 

We use estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

 19 

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The fair value of a financial instrument is the amount that could be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Financial assets are marked to bid prices and financial liabilities are marked to offer prices. Fair value measurements do not include transaction costs. A fair value hierarchy is used to prioritize the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. Categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The fair value hierarchy is defined into the following three categories: 

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing.

 

The Company recognizes income and expenses based on the accrual method of accounting.

 

Advertising

 

The Company expenses all advertising costs as they are incurred.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents are defined as demand deposits, money market accounts and overnight investments at banks. Cash is maintained in banks insured by the FDIC for an aggregate of up to $250,000. The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.

 

Concentrations of Risk

 

Financial Instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with major financial institutions. At December 31, 2015, the Company has $319,478 in excess of federally insured limits.

 

 20 

 

Dividend Policy

 

The Company has not yet adopted a policy regarding dividends.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to reverse. An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded when it is more likely than not that such tax benefits will not be realized.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable based on the undiscounted future cash flows of the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset is determined not to be recoverable, a write-down to fair value is recorded. Fair values are determined based on quoted market values, discounted cash flows, or external appraisals, as applicable. The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment at the individual asset or the asset group level for which the lowest level of independent cash flows can be identified.  

 

Long Term Investments

 

Non-marketable equity investments are carried at cost. Investments held by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the investment may not be recoverable. In the event that facts and circumstances indicate that the cost may be impaired, an evaluation of recoverability would be performed. Impairment expense of $17,788 and $30,000 has been recorded on long term investments for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financials include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries from its inception. All significant intercompany accounts and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Property & Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost. The Company provides for depreciation and amortization using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various classes of property, as follows:

 

Machinery & Equipment  5 to 7 years
    
Furniture & Fixtures  5 to 7 years
    
Improvements  10 to 20 years
    
Building  40 years
    
Income Producing Properties  40 years
    

Expenditures for additions, improvements and betterments that extend the useful lives of existing assets, if material, are generally capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

 

 21 

 

Recognition of Rental Income

 

Revenue from lease of residential and commercial properties is recognized when earned with the passage of time per the terms of the leases in effect.

 

Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic net income (loss) per share amounts are computed based on the weighted average number of shares actually outstanding. Diluted net income (loss) per share amounts are computed using the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding as if shares had been issued on the exercise of any common share rights unless the exercise becomes antidilutive and then the basic and diluted per share amounts are the same.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company does not expect that the adoption of recent accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

We do not hold any derivative instruments and do not engage in any hedging activities.

 

Item 8. Financial Statements.

 

Our consolidated financial statements are contained in pages F-1 through F-14 which appear at the end of this Annual Report.

 

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

 

There are no reportable events under this item for the year ended December 31, 2015.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure and Control Procedures

 

Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(c) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in report that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

This Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal controls over financial reporting and disclosure controls. Internal Control Over Financial Reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Company’s principal executive and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

(1) Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the issuer;
(2) Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the issuer are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the registrant; and
(3) Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the issuer’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

 22 

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is appropriately recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the specified time periods.

 

Management has conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2015, based on the framework established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”).

 

Based on this assessment, management concluded that as of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, it had material weaknesses in its internal control procedures.

 

As of period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we have concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was ineffective. The Company’s assessment identified certain material weaknesses which are set forth below:

 

Functional Controls and Segregation of Duties

 

Because of the Company’s limited resources, there are limited controls over information processing.

 

There is an inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives. Our Company’s management is composed of a small number of individuals resulting in a situation where limitations on segregation of duties exist. In order to remedy this situation we would need to hire additional staff to provide greater segregation of duties. Currently, it is not feasible to hire additional staff to obtain optimal segregation of duties. Management will reassess this matter in the following year to determine whether improvement in segregation of duty is feasible. 

 

Accordingly, as the result of identifying the above material weakness we have concluded that these control deficiencies resulted in a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the Company’s internal controls.

 

Management believes that the material weaknesses set forth above were the result of the scale of our operations and are intrinsic to our small size. Management believes these weaknesses did not have a material effect on our financial results and intends to take remedial actions upon receiving funding for the Company’s business operations.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only management’s report herein.

 

(c) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during our most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Item 9B. Other Information.

 

On March 17, 2016, the Company entered into a subscription agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with an accredited investor for the issuance and sale of (i) a convertible debenture in the principal amount of $100,000 (the “Debenture”) and (ii) a common stock purchase warrant permitting the holder of the Debenture to purchase 150,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.40 per share (the “March Warrant”).

Our board of directors consists of two members: Jeremy Frommer and Leonard Schiller. The directors will serve until our next annual meeting and until their successors are duly elected and qualified. The Company defines “independent” as that term is defined in Rule 5605(a)(2) of the NASDAQ listing standards.

 

In making the determination of whether a member of the board is independent, our board considers, among other things, transactions and relationships between each director and his immediate family and the Company, including those reported under the caption “Certain Relationships and Related-Party Transactions ”. The purpose of this review is to determine whether any such relationships or transactions are material and, therefore, inconsistent with a determination that the directors are independent. On the basis of such review and its understanding of such relationships and transactions, our board affirmatively determined that Leonard Schiller is qualified as independent and that he has no material relationship with us that might interfere with his exercise of independent judgment.

 

Board Committees

 

The Company does not currently have standing nominating, audit or compensation committees, but we intend to implement an Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee in fiscal year 2016.

 

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

 

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires the Company’s directors, executive officers and persons who beneficially own 10% or more of a class of securities registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act to file reports of beneficial ownership and changes in beneficial ownership with the SEC. Directors, executive officers and greater than 10% stockholders are required by the rules and regulations of the SEC to furnish the Company with copies of all reports filed by them in compliance with Section 16(a).

 

Based solely on our review of certain reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the reports required to be filed with respect to transactions in our common stock during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, were timely.

Director Compensation

Item 12. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters.

 

As of the close of business on April 14, 2016, we had outstanding 31,682,896 shares of common stock.  Each share of common stock is currently entitled to one vote on all matters put to a vote of our stockholders.  The following table sets forth the number of common shares, and percentage of outstanding common shares, beneficially owned as of April 14, 2016, by: 

 

  each person known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of our outstanding common stock;
  each of our current directors;
  each our current executive officers and any other persons identified as a “named executive” in the  Summary Compensation Table above; and
  all our current executive officers and directors as a group.

  

 27 

 

Shares beneficially owned and percentage ownership before this offering is based on 31,682,896 shares of common stock outstanding as of April 14, 2016.

 

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC, and includes general voting power and/or investment power with respect to securities. Shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of options or warrants that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of the record date, and shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of other securities currently convertible or convertible within 60 days, are deemed outstanding for computing the beneficial ownership percentage of the person holding such securities but are not deemed outstanding for computing the beneficial ownership percentage of any other person. Under the applicable SEC rules, each person’s beneficial ownership is calculated by dividing the total number of shares with respect to which they possess beneficial ownership by the total number of outstanding shares.  In any case where an individual has beneficial ownership over securities that are not outstanding, but are issuable upon the exercise of options or warrants or similar rights within the next 60 days, that same number of shares is added to the denominator in the calculation described above. Because the calculation of each person’s beneficial ownership set forth in the “Percentage Beneficially Owned” column of the table may include shares that are not presently outstanding, the sum total of the percentages set forth in such column may exceed 100%.  Unless otherwise indicated, the address of each of the following persons is 202 S Dean Street, Englewood, NJ 07631, and, based upon information available or furnished to us, each such person has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares set forth opposite his, her or its name.

(1) The securities “beneficially owned” by a person are determined in accordance with the definition of “beneficial ownership” set forth in the regulations of the SEC and accordingly, may include securities owned by or for, among others, the spouse, children or certain other relatives of such person, as well as other securities over which the person has or shares voting or investment power or securities which the person has the right to acquire within 60 days.

Redemption

 

Upon (i) the occurrence of an event of default, (ii) a “change in control” or (iii) our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, and if the holder of the Series A Preferred so elects, we must pay a sum of money determined by multiplying the then current purchase price of the outstanding Series A Preferred by 110%, plus accrued but unpaid dividends, no later than thirty (30) business days after request for redemption is made.  “Change in Control” means (i) our Company no longer having a class of shares publicly traded, listed or quoted, (ii) our becoming a subsidiary of another entity, (iii) a majority of our board of directors as of the Closing Date no longer serving as our directors of the Corporation, and (iv) the sale, lease or transfer of substantially all of our assets or the assets of our subsidiary.

The conversion price of the Series A Preferred shall be $0.25, subject to adjustment (the “Series A Conversion Price”).

 

Except under certain circumstances (such as the issuance of our common stock pursuant to a stock option plan), if we issue shares of our common stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for shares of our common stock, for a purchase price, conversion price or exercise price that is less than the then current conversion price of our Series A Preferred, then the Series A Conversion Price of our Series A Preferred will be reduced to such lower price.

 

 31 

 

The Series A Conversion Price for our Series A Preferred is further adjusted in the event of:  (i) a declaration of any dividend or distribution on our common stock, (ii) stock split or (iii) reclassification of our common stock, proportionately so that the holders of our Series A Preferred are entitled receive the kind and number of shares or other securities to which they would have owned or have been entitled to receive after the happening of any of such events had such shares of our Series A Preferred been converted immediately prior to the happening of such event.

 

If we merge with or into any other corporation where we are not the surviving entity, then unless the right to convert shares of our Series A Preferred is terminated as part of such merger, then, if permitted under applicable law, the holder of our Series A Preferred will have the right to convert each of their shares of Series A Preferred into the same kind and amount of shares of stock receivable upon the merger.  A similar provision applies to the sale of all or substantially all of our assets.

 

If a holder of our Series A Preferred notifies us of such holder’s election to convert and we do not deliver the shares of common stock issuable upon such conversion, and the holder has to buy shares of our common stock on the open market because of their obligation to deliver shares of common stock, then we will pay such holder the difference between the price paid on the open market and the Series A Stated Value. We will also pay interest at the annual rate of 15% for each day that we are late as well $100 per business day for each $10,000 of Series A Stated Value and dividend which is not timely delivered.

 

Neither we nor the holder of our Series A Preferred may convert any amount that would result in the holder having a beneficial ownership of our common stock which would be in excess of the sum of (i) the number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by the holder and its affiliates on the conversion date and (ii) the number of shares of our common stock issuable upon the conversion, which would result in the aggregate beneficial ownership by such holder and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of our common stock.  The holder of our Series A Preferred may waive the conversion limitation in whole or in part upon and effective after sixty one (61) days’ prior written notice to our Company.

 

Events of Default

 

For so long as the Series A Preferred is outstanding, unless waived in writing, the occurrence of certain events of default (each, a “Series A Event of Default”) or until such Series A Event of Default has been cured, if such Series A Event of Default is permitted to be cured hereunder, shall cause the dividend rate to become 15% from and after the occurrence and during the pendency of such event with respect to the Series A Preferred. Series A Events of Default include but are not limited to (i) the Company failing to timely pay any dividend payment or the failure to timely pay any other sum of money due (ii) breach any material covenant or other material term or condition of the Subscription Agreement or Certificate of Designation (iii) any material misrepresentation made herein, or in connection herewith (iv) any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company or any substantial portion of its business (v) the merger, consolidation or reorganization of the Company with or into another company or person or entity (other than with or into a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company), or sale of the capital stock of the Company by the Company or the holders thereof, in any case under circumstances in which the holders of a majority of the voting power of the outstanding capital stock of Company immediately prior to such transaction owning less than a majority in voting power of the outstanding capital stock of Company or the surviving or resulting company or other entity, as the case may be, immediately following such transaction (vi) the failure by the Company to have reserved for issuance upon conversion of the Series A Preferred the number of shares of Common Stock as required in the Subscription Agreement; and (vii) the Company’s failure to timely deliver to the holder of Series A Preferred common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred or a replacement preferred stock certificate (if required) within five (5) business days after the required delivery date.

Upon (i) the occurrence of an event of default, (ii) a “change in control” or (iii) our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, and if the holder of the Series B Preferred so elects, we must pay a sum of money determined by multiplying the then current purchase price of the outstanding Series B Preferred by 110%, plus accrued but unpaid dividends, no later than thirty (30) business days after request for redemption is made.  “Change in Control” means (i) our Company no longer having a class of shares publicly traded, listed or quoted, (ii) our becoming a subsidiary of another entity, (iii) a majority of our board of directors as of the Closing Date no longer serving as our directors of the Corporation, and (iv) the sale, lease or transfer of substantially all of our assets or the assets of our subsidiary.

If we merge with or into any other corporation where we are not the surviving entity, then unless the right to convert shares of our Series B Preferred is terminated as part of such merger, then, if permitted under applicable law, the holder of our Series B Preferred will have the right to convert each of their shares of Series B Preferred into the same kind and amount of shares of stock receivable upon the merger.  A similar provision applies to the sale of all or substantially all of our assets.

 

If a holder of our Series B Preferred notifies us of such holder’s election to convert and we do not deliver the shares of common stock issuable upon such conversion, and the holder has to buy shares of our common stock on the open market because of their obligation to deliver shares of common stock, then we will pay such holder the difference between the price paid on the open market and the Series B Stated Value.  We will also pay interest at the annual rate of 15% for each day that we are late as well $100 per business day for each $10,000 of Series B Stated Valueand dividend which is not timely delivered.

 

Neither we nor the holder of our Series B Preferred may convert any amount that would result in the holder having a beneficial ownership of our common stock which would be in excess of the sum of (i) the number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by the holder and its affiliates on the conversion date and (ii) the number of shares of our common stock issuable upon the conversion, which would result in the aggregate beneficial ownership by such holder and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of our common stock.  The holder of our Series B Preferred may waive the conversion limitation in whole or in part upon and effective after sixty one (61) days’ prior written notice to our Company.

 

Events of Default

 

For so long as the Series B Preferred is outstanding, unless waived in writing, the occurrence of certain events of default (each, a “Series B Event of Default”) or until such Series B Event of Default has been cured, if such Series B Event of Default is permitted to be cured hereunder, shall cause the dividend rate to become 15% from and after the occurrence and during the pendency of such event with respect to the Series B Preferred. Series B Events of Default include but are not limited to (i) the Company failing to timely pay any dividend payment or the failure to timely pay any other sum of money due (ii) breach any material covenant or other material term or condition of the Subscription Agreement or Certificate of Designation (iii) any material misrepresentation made herein, or in connection herewith (iv) any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company or any substantial portion of its business (v) the merger, consolidation or reorganization of the Company with or into another company or person or entity (other than with or into a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company), or sale of the capital stock of the Company by the Company or the holders thereof, in any case under circumstances in which the holders of a majority of the voting power of the outstanding capital stock of Company immediately prior to such transaction owning less than a majority in voting power of the outstanding capital stock of Company or the surviving or resulting company or other entity, as the case may be, immediately following such transaction (vi) the failure by the Company to have reserved for issuance upon conversion of the Series B Preferred the number of shares of Common Stock as required in the Subscription Agreement; and (vii) the Company’s failure to timely deliver to the holder of Series B Preferred common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred or a replacement preferred stock certificate (if required) within five (5) business days after the required delivery date.

 

Series D Convertible Preferred Stock

 

As of April 14, 2016, there were 2,013,490 shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock outstanding.

 

The designations, rights and preferences of the Series D Preferred include:

 

(i) the shares have no voting rights.

 

(ii) each share is convertible at the option of the holder into one share of our common stock. The rate of conversion is subject to adjustment as discussed below.

 

(iii) at any time during the 12 months after the Series D preferred is issued, the conversion price of the Series D Preferred is subject to proportional adjustment in the event the company issues, sells or grants any option to purchase or sells or grants any right to reprice, or otherwise disposes of or issues (or announces any sale, grant or any option to purchase or other disposition), any common stock or common stock equivalents entitling any person to acquire shares of Common Stock at an effective price per share that is lower than $0.25 per share subject to certain exclusions. In addition, the Series D Preferred is subject to proportional adjustment in the event of stock splits, stock dividends and similar corporate events.

Warrants

 

The Company has as of April 14, 2016 outstanding warrants to purchase an aggregate of up to 12,566,667 shares of the Company’s common stock. These warrants are exercisable immediately, have a weighted-average remaining life of 4.32 years and a weighted-average exercise price of $0.36 as of April 14, 2016. 

 

Options

 

There are 600,000 outstanding options to purchase our securities.

 

Dividends

 

We have not paid any cash dividends to our holders of common stock. The declaration of any future cash dividends is at the discretion of our board of directors and depends upon our earnings, if any, our capital requirements and financial position, our general economic conditions, and other pertinent conditions. It is our present intention not to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future, but rather to reinvest earnings, if any, in our business operations.

 

Market for our Securities

 

While there is no established public trading market for our Common Stock, our Common Stock is quoted on the OTC Markets OTCQB under the symbol “JMDA”.

 

The market price of our Common Stock is subject to significant fluctuations in response to variations in our quarterly operating results, general trends in the market and other factors, over many of which we have little or no control. In addition, broad market fluctuations, as well as general economic, business and political conditions, may adversely affect the market for our Common Stock, regardless of our actual or projected performance.

 

Anti-Takeover Provisions

 

Our charter and bylaws contain provisions that may make it more difficult for a third party to acquire or may discourage acquisition bids for us. Our Board may, without action of our stockholders, issue authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock. The existence of unissued preferred stock may enable the Board, without further action by the stockholders, to issue such stock to persons friendly to current management or to issue such stock with terms that could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of us, thereby protecting the continuity of our management. Our shares of preferred stock could therefore be issued quickly with terms that could delay, defer, or prevent a change in control of us, or make removal of management more difficult.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders

Great Plains Holdings, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Great Plains Holdings, Inc. (“the Company”) as of December 31, 2015 and 2014 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficiency and cash flows for each of the years in the two year period ended December 31, 2015. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.  

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Great Plains Holdings, Inc. as of December 31, 2015, and the results of its operations and cash flows for each of the years in the two year period ended December 31, 2015, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

GREAT PLAINS HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2015

 

Note 1 - Organization

 

Great Plains Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on December 30, 1999 under the name LILM, Inc. The Company changed its name on December 3, 2013 as part of its plans to diversify its business through the acquisition and operation of commercial real estate, including but not limited to self-storage facilities, apartment buildings, 55+ senior manufactured homes communities, and other income producing properties. Historically, the Company has principally engaged in manufacture and marketing of the LiL Marc urinal used in the training of young boys, but is changing its focus to residential and commercial rental real estate as well as exploring other business opportunities.

 

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

We use estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Fair Value Measurements

The fair value of a financial instrument is the amount that could be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Financial assets are marked to bid prices and financial liabilities are marked to offer prices. Fair value measurements do not include transaction costs. A fair value hierarchy is used to prioritize the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values. Categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The fair value hierarchy is defined into the following three categories:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing.

 

Accounting Method

The Company recognizes income and expenses based on the accrual method of accounting.

 

Advertising

The Company expenses all advertising costs as they are incurred.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents are defined as demand deposits, money market accounts and overnight investments at banks. Cash is maintained in banks insured by the FDIC for an aggregate of up to $250,000. The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Concentrations of Risk

Financial Instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with major financial institutions. At December 31, 2015, the Company has $319,478 in excess of federally insured limits.

 

Dividend Policy

The Company has not yet adopted a policy regarding dividends.

 

Income Taxes

The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to reverse. An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded when it is more likely than not that such tax benefits will not be realized.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable based on the undiscounted future cash flows of the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset is determined not to be recoverable, a write-down to fair value is recorded. Fair values are determined based on quoted market values, discounted cash flows, or external appraisals, as applicable. The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment at the individual asset or the asset group level for which the lowest level of independent cash flows can be identified.  

 

Long Term Investments

Non-marketable equity investments are carried at cost. Investments held by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the investment may not be recoverable. In the event that facts and circumstances indicate that the cost may be impaired, an evaluation of recoverability would be performed. Impairment expense of $17,788 and $30,000 has been recorded on long term investments for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financials include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries from its inception. All significant intercompany accounts and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Property & Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost. The Company provides for depreciation and amortization using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various classes of property, as follows:

 

Machinery & Equipment 5 to 7 years
Furniture & Fixtures 5 to 7 years
Improvements 10 to 20 years
Building 40 years
Income Producing Properties 40 years

 

Expenditures for additions, improvements and betterments that extend the useful lives of existing assets, if material, are generally capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred.

Recognition of Rental Income

Revenue from lease of residential and commercial properties is recognized when earned with the passage of time per the terms of the leases in effect.

 

Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

Basic net income (loss) per share amounts are computed based on the weighted average number of shares actually outstanding. Diluted net income (loss) per share amounts are computed using the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding as if shares had been issued on the exercise of any common share rights unless the exercise becomes antidilutive and then the basic and diluted per share amounts are the same.  As of December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company had 0 and 2,021,858 common stock equivalents outstanding related to the convertible notes payable.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Company does not expect that the adoption of recent accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial statements.

 

Note 3 - Property and Equipment

 

On September 17, 2014, the Company acquired a residential duplex located in Hanahan, South Carolina from DayBreak Capital, LLC, a related party. The real estate was purchased for a price of $83,402. Kent Campbell, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer is the majority shareholder of DayBreak Capital, LLC. Therefore, as this was a transaction between entities under common control, the Company recorded the cost of the land and buildings at historical cost. These amounts were $16,729 for the land, and $62,233 for the buildings (total cost of $78,962). The difference between the agreed upon cost and the historical cost was recorded to additional paid-in capital ($4,440).

 

On October 31, 2014, the Company acquired a mobile home located in Lady Lake, Florida. The real estate and improvements located on it were acquired from an unrelated party for a purchase price of $53,000 plus customary closing costs. The Company paid the purchase price in cash at closing.

 

On December 12, 2014, the Company acquired a mobile home located in Wildwood, Florida. The real estate and improvements located on it were acquired from an unrelated party for a purchase price of $29,000 plus customary closing costs. The Company paid the purchase price in cash at closing.

On March 9, 2015, the Company acquired a residential duplex located in Hanahan, South Carolina from DayBreak Capital, LLC, a related party. The real estate was purchased for a price of $66,815. Kent Campbell, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer is the majority shareholder of DayBreak Capital, LLC. Therefore, as this was a transaction between entities under common control, the Company recorded the cost of the land and buildings at historical cost. These amounts were $13,904 for the land, and $51,721 for the buildings (total cost of $65,625). The difference between the agreed upon cost and the historical cost was recorded to additional paid-in capital ($1,190).

Note 4 - Long Term Investments and Deposits

 

On April 10, 2014, the Company purchased for a price of $30,000 a 1.67% interest in Texstar Preferred Partner Joint Venture III, LP (“Texstar”). Texstar owns a 60% net revenue interest in the Engleke Lease, an oil and gas lease covering the Austin Chalk, Eagle Ford and Buda reservoirs located in the Luling-Banyon field area in Guadalupe County, Texas. This lease contains 14 oil and gas wells that are employing re-stimulation and secondary recovery efforts with targeted remaining recoverable reserves of 2,990,000 barrels of oil. This investment is accounted for using the cost method of accounting. At December 31, 2014, the Company noted indicators of impairment due to the return on the investment not being what was anticipated. Accordingly, the Company performed an impairment analysis and based on that analysis determined the investment was fully impaired. Therefore, the Company recorded an impairment loss on this investment of $30,000 for the year ended December 31, 2014.

 

On December 10, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase (with subsequent amendment dated January 30, 2015) and royalty agreement with Bonjoe Gourmet Chips, LLC, (“Bonjoe”) a Florida limited liability company, and its members Joseph Trudel and Gilbert Hess. The Company delivered $11,500 under the original agreement, which was being held as a deposit until the exchange was complete. Additionally, the Company provided Bonjoe with a $6,200 working capital loan that accrued interest of $88 through March 31, 2015. As of March 31, 2015, the Company determined it would no longer pursue this opportunity and therefore determined an impairment loss was necessary. The Company recorded a related impairment loss of $17,788, as of March 31, 2015.

 

Note 5 - Convertible Debt

 

On August 22, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with KBM Worldwide, Inc. (“KBM”), whereby KBM agreed to invest $68,000 into the Company in exchange for the Company’s issuance of a convertible promissory note, which bears interest at 8% per annum. All outstanding principal and accrued interest on the Note is due and payable on the maturity date, which is May 18, 2015. The Note is convertible by KBM into common stock of the Company at any time during the conversion period, which begins February 18, 2015 (180 days after the issuance) and ends May 18, 2015 (at maturity). The conversion price for each share is 61% multiplied by the lowest average three day market price of the Common Stock during the ten trading days prior to the relevant notice of conversion.

On November 17, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with KBM Worldwide, Inc., whereby KBM agreed to invest $43,000 into the Company in exchange for the Company’s issuance of a convertible promissory note, which bears interest at 8% per annum. All outstanding principal and accrued interest on the Note is due and payable on the maturity date, which is August 19, 2015. The Note is convertible by KBM into common stock of the Company at any time during the conversion period, which begins May 16, 2015 (180 days after the issuance) and ends August 19, 2015 (at maturity). The conversion price for each share is 61% multiplied by the lowest average three day market price of the Common Stock during the ten trading days prior to the relevant notice of conversion.

 

We determined the conversion feature associated with these convertible notes should be accounted for under ASC 470, whereby a debt discount is recorded based on the intrinsic value. As such, we recorded a debt discount of $43,590 on August 22, 2014 and $27,492 for the notes described above. Amortization of the beneficial conversion feature triggered by this convertible note is reported as interest expense on the income statement. A total of $28,658 was recorded as interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2014, of which $26,272 related to debt discount amortization and $2,386 related to stated interest. A total of $50,621 was recorded as interest expense through March 19, 2015 (date notes were paid off – see below), of which $18,518 related to debt discount amortization, $1,314 related to stated interest, and $30,789 related to a prepayment premium.

 

On February 23, 2015, the Company issued 51,096 shares of common stock upon receipt of a conversion request from KBM, for $12,000 in convertible debt, associated with the August 22, 2014 promissory note.

 

On March 19, 2015, the Company paid both notes in full (including accrued interest) with available cash in the operating account. The remaining debt discount was amortized to interest expense ($26,291).

 

Note 6 - Stockholders’ Equity

 

As of December 31, 2015, the Company has authorized 320,000,000 shares, of which 300,000,000 are Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share with 1,514,172 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and 20,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, with 1,000,000 shares designated as Series A Preferred Stock, $0.001 par with 10,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, and 10,000 shares designated as Series B Preferred Stock, $.001 par with 10,000 shares of Series B Preferred issued and outstanding, and 3,500,000 shares designated as Series C Convertible Preferred Stock, $.001 with 0 shares issued and outstanding.

The Series C Convertible Preferred Stock has the following designations, rights and preferences:

 

  the shares have no voting rights.
  each share is convertible at the option of the holder into eight shares of the Company’s common stock at any time after the Company merges or consolidates with or into another person. The rate of conversion is subject to adjustment as discussed below.

  the Series C Preferred shares are not convertible to the extent that (a) the number of shares of the Company’s common stock beneficially owned by the holder and (b) the number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series C Preferred or otherwise would result in the beneficial ownership by holder of more than 4.99% of the Company’s then outstanding common stock. This ownership limitation can be increased or decreased to any percentage not exceeding 9.99% by the holder upon 61 days notice to us.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company issued 6,818 common shares for cash of $12,000; 10,000 series A preferred shares for cash of $1,000; 1,818 common shares for services, valued at $10,000; and 10,000 series B preferred shares for cash of $5,000.

On December 31, 2014, the Board of Directors committed to a plan to discontinue operations of its subsidiary Lil Marc, Inc. (“Lil Marc”).

This decision represents a strategic shift in operations to focus efforts and resources on its real estate operations, oil and gas leasing property, and other business opportunities.

 

The assets and liabilities held for discontinued operations presented on the balance sheet as of December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 consisted of the following:

The total valuation allowance as of December 31, 2015 was $334,189, which increased by $116,599 for the year ended December 31, 2015.

 

As of December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company has no unrecognized income tax benefits. The Company’s policy for classifying interest and penalties associated with unrecognized income tax benefits is to include such items as tax expense. No interest or penalties have been recorded during the years ended December 31, 2015, and 2014 and no interest or penalties have been accrued as of December 31, 2015 and 2014. As of December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company did not have any amounts recorded pertaining to uncertain tax positions.

 

Federal and state laws impose substantial restrictions on the utilization of tax attributes in the event of an “ownership change,” as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. Currently, the Company is analyzing the change of control as a result of the February 5, 2016 subsequent event transaction (See Note 10). As a result of the ownership change, potential near term utilization of these assets will be reduced.

 

The tax years from 2013 and forward remain open to examination by federal and state authorities due to net operating loss and credit carryforwards. The Company is currently not under examination by the Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authorities .
