NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 

UNAUDITED

 

NOTE 1 ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization and Nature of Business

 

Code Green Apparel Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on December 11, 2007. On April 26, 2014, and with the appointment of George Powell as its CEO and Director, the Company changed its business model to offer eco-friendly corporate apparel primarily constructed from recycled textiles.

 

The Company is a publicly held Nevada corporation, whose common stock trades on the OTC Market Group, Inc.’s Pink Sheets under the trading symbol, “CGAC.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017. For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and timing of revenues and expenses, the reported amounts and classification of assets and liabilities, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates and assumptions are based on the Company’s historical results as well as management’s future expectations. The Company’s actual results could vary materially from management’s estimates and assumptions. Additionally, interim results may not be indicative of the Company’s results for future interim periods, or the Company’s annual results.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less. At June 30, 2017, the Company did not have any cash equivalents.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are not collateralized and interest is not accrued on past due accounts. Periodically, management reviews the adequacy of its provision for doubtful accounts based on historical bad debt expense results and current economic conditions using factors based on the aging of its accounts receivable. After management has exhausted all collection efforts, management writes off receivables and the related reserve. Additionally, the Company may identify additional allowance requirements based on indications that a specific customer may be experiencing financial difficulties. Actual bad debt results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

5

 

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or market. The Company periodically reviews its inventories for indications of slow movement and obsolescence and records an allowance when it is deemed necessary. There was no inventory at June 30, 2017.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes gross sales when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, title transfer has occurred, the price is fixed or readily determinable, and collection is probable. It recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605, Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”).

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company from time to time issues shares of common stock for services. These issuances have been valued based upon the quoted market price of the shares.

 

Disclosure About Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company estimates that the fair value of all financial instruments at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, do not differ materially from the aggregate carrying values of its financial instruments recorded in the accompanying condensed balance sheets. The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value, and accordingly, the estimates are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that the Company could realize in a current market exchange.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model to value the derivative instruments. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

The Company has determined that certain convertible debt instruments outstanding as of the date of these financial statements include an exercise price “reset” adjustment that qualifies as derivative financial instruments under the provisions of ASC 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in an Entity’s Own Stock (“ASC 815-40”). Certain of the convertible debentures have a variable exercise price, thus are convertible into an indeterminate number of shares for which we cannot determine if we have sufficient authorized shares to settle the transaction with. Accordingly, the embedded conversion option is a derivative liability and is marked to market through earnings at the end of each reporting period. Any change in fair value during the period recorded in earnings as “Other income (expense) - gain (loss) on change in derivative liabilities.

Net Income (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. Any anti-dilutive effects on net income (loss) per share are excluded. The Company has 591,361,228 potentially dilutive securities outstanding as of June 30, 2017.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes,” which requires that the Company recognize deferred tax liabilities and assets based on the differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and the tax bases of assets and liabilities, using enacted tax rates in effect in the years the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred income tax benefit (expense) results from the change in net deferred tax assets or deferred tax liabilities. A valuation allowance is recorded when it is more likely than not that some or all deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The Company has adopted the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10-05 Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes. The ASC clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. The ASC prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The ASC provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. Open tax-years subject to IRS examination include 2013 - 2016.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. Topic 842 affects any entity that enters into a lease, with some specified scope exemptions. The guidance in this ASU supersedes Topic 840, Leases. The core principle of Topic 842 is that a lessee should recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from leases. A lessee should recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. For public companies, the amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting ASU No. 2016-02 on its financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net) that clarifies how to apply revenue recognition guidance related to whether an entity is a principal or an agent. ASU 2016-08 clarifies that the analysis must focus on whether the entity has control of the goods or services before they are transferred to the customer and provides additional guidance about how to apply the control principle when services are provided and when goods or services are combined with other goods or services. The effective date for ASU 2016-08 is the same as the effective date of ASU 2014-09 as amended by ASU 2015-14, for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those years. The Company has not yet determined the impact of ASU 2016-08 on its financial statements.

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, which provides further guidance on identifying performance obligations and improves the operability and understandability of licensing implementation guidance. The effective date for ASU 2016-10 is the same as the effective date of ASU 2014-09 as amended by ASU 2015-14, for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those years. The Company has not yet determined the impact of ASU 2016-10 on its financial statements.

On September 23, 2016, the Company secured $63,825 in the form of a convertible promissory note. The note bears interest at 12% per annum. The note matures on September 23, 2017. The holder has the option to convert any balance of principal into common stock of the Company after the initial 180 days. The rate of conversion for this note is calculated as the average of the three lowest closing prices of the Company’s common stock during the 20 trading days immediately preceding such conversion, discounted by 50%.

 

Due to the variable conversion price associated with these convertible promissory notes, the Company has determined that the conversion feature is considered a derivative liability. The accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record the fair value of the derivatives as of the inception date of the Convertible Promissory Note and to adjust the fair value as of each subsequent balance sheet date.

 

The initial fair values of the embedded debt derivatives of $500,842, $227,746, $322,660 and $108,458 were charged to current period operations as interest expenses. The fair value of the described embedded derivative was determined using the Black-Scholes Model with the following assumptions:

 

(1) risk free interest rate of 0.10% to 0.45%
(2) dividend yield of 0%;
(3) volatility factor of 248% to 435%;
(4) an expected life of the conversion feature of 365 days; and
(5) estimated fair value of the Company’s common stock of $0.006 to $0.008 per share.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a gain on fair value of derivative of $70,599.

 

The following table represents the Company’s derivative liability activity for the six months ended June 30, 2017:

 

Balance at December 31, 2016  $1,525,135 
Revaluation due to insufficient shares available for issuance   (561,447)
Valuation upon issuance of debts   1,621,854 
Conversion   (478,991)
Change in derivative liability during the six months ended June 30, 2017   (912,423) 
Balance June 30, 2017  $1,194,128

NOTE 5 DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The following table presents the components of the Company’s derivative financial instruments associated with convertible promissory notes (See Note 4) which have no observable market data and are derived using the Black-Scholes option pricing model measured at fair value on a recurring basis, using Level 1 and 3 inputs to the fair value hierarchy, at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016:

 

   June 30,
2017
   December 31,
2016
 
Embedded conversion features  $1,194,128   $963,688 
Insufficient shares       561,447 
Derivative liability  $1,194,128   $1,525,135 


These derivative financial instruments arise as a result of applying ASC 815 Derivative and Hedging (“ASC 815”), which requires the Company to make a determination whether an equity-linked financial instrument, or embedded feature, is indexed to the entity’s own stock. This guidance applies to any freestanding financial instrument or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own stock.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company had outstanding notes with embedded conversion features and the Company did not, at this date, have a sufficient number of authorized and available shares of common stock to settle the outstanding contracts which triggered the requirement to account for these instruments as derivative financial instruments until such time as the Company has sufficient authorized shares.

NOTE 8    GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has had only limited revenues since inception. Since inception, it has incurred significant losses to date, and as of June 30, 2017, has an accumulated deficit of approximately $14,800,000 and has a working capital deficit of $2,099,816. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue its operations is uncertain and is dependent upon its ability to implement a business plan sufficient to generate positive cash flow and/or raise capital to fund its operations. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the amounts and classifications of assets and liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue operations in the normal course of business.

The purchase price paid for the Assets at closing on June 23, 2016, was (a) $50,000 in cash; (b) 5 million shares of restricted common stock; and (c) a promissory note in the amount of $200,000 (the “Promissory Note”). During December 2016, the asset value of $280,000 was considered fully impaired. As such, the entire value of $280,000 less the accumulated amortization in the amount of $60,000, was written off.

Until the earlier of (a) the maturity date of the Promissory Note; and (b) the date the Promissory Note is paid in full, we are required to pay 10Star fifty percent (50%) of the Gross Profits generated by us in connection with the Purchased Accounts, no later than the end of the calendar month following the month during which we generate such Gross Profits and receive payment in connection therewith. “Gross Profit” means: (x) the total gross revenues derived from the Purchased Accounts, less (y) (i) cost of goods sold, (ii) returns, (iii) discounts, (iv) adjustments, and (v) allowances, and those other items that are customarily subtracted from total gross revenue to determine gross profit in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Each payment is credited first to accrued interest and second to principal. The Promissory Note contains standard and customary events of default. The Promissory Note is unsecured and 10Star has no right to any collateral or security interests in connection therewith.

Description of Business

 

The Company was incorporated in Nevada on December 11, 2007.

 

The Company is engaged in the business of manufacturing, selling, marketing and outfitting companies of all sizes and industries with eco-friendly apparel made from recycled textiles. The corporate apparel market encompasses a wide variety of apparel products and accessories ranging from customized uniforms to caps, t-shirts and aprons. We believe that many of these companies are actively seeking ways to incorporate being more environmentally friendly into their company and would entertain mandating that all uniforms be manufactured from recycled fabrics. As all of our products are eco-friendly, our strategy is to emphasize the sustainability features while at the same time providing our products at market competitive rates.

 

Code Green reduces the environmental impact of the apparel industry by designing, manufacturing and distributing apparel products from eco-friendly and sustainable textiles. It supports both the uniform needs and sustainability initiatives of companies worldwide, by offering a complete line of recycled apparel in the form of T-shirts, hats, polo shirts, pants, shorts, aprons, jackets and accessories. In addition, the Company fulfills recycled clothing needs for organizations of all sizes hosting promotional, fundraising and special events. Its apparel collection is also available to distributors and screen printers through its wholesale distribution channel.

Plan of Operations

 

We have commenced shipping products to several customers, including Frisco Rivet and numerous specialty based accounts. We are also working diligently to finalize programs with numerous other accounts. Notwithstanding the above, we believe we need $1.5 million of additional funding for production in the near term and for our operations for the next 12 months and $2.5 million for our operations over the next 24 months. We plan to raise funding subsequent to the date of this report through the sale of debt or equity, which may not be available on favorable terms, if at all. We require additional funding to (a) fund production on new programs that are coming on line; (b) fund additional sales and marketing programs to enhance revenue growth; (c) fund development of and warehouse inventory for an E-Commerce site; (d) fund synergistic acquisitions; and (e) to bridge operational working capital until such time, if ever, as we can generate sufficient revenues to support our expenses. If we are unable to access additional capital moving forward, it will hurt our ability to grow and to generate future revenues. We may not be able to increase sales or obtain additional financing, if necessary, at a level to meet our current obligations to continue as a going concern.

Revenue and Gross Loss

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company generated no revenues through the sale of goods and had no associated costs. The Company was unable to generate revenues due to the Company's lack of cash on hand, which made it impossible for the Company to purchase raw materials. During the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company generated $10,141 in revenues through the sale of goods with associated costs of $8,500. The Company recognized a gross profit of $1,641 for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

  

Operating expenses

  

The Company incurred $332,577 in selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2017, a $106,187 increase from the $226,390 in selling, general and administrative expenses incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2016. This increase is directly related to increased professional fees and product development expenses.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $89,845 of consulting expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses. The Company incurred $74,600 of consulting expenses during the three months ended June 30, 2016.

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $84,665 of legal, accounting and professional expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses, which is a $33,375 increase from the $51,290 incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2016. Legal, accounting and professional expenses relate to the Company’s registration statement and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The main reason for the decrease in professional fees was the cost of the preparation of the Company’s Form S-1 registration statement during the prior period. Additionally, the Company did not have the resources in place to begin work on its required periodic reports during the three months ended June 30, 2017.

 

23

 

 

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $70,938 of product development expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses, which is a $65,938 increase compared to the $45,000 incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2017. The product development costs relate to the development of products within the corporate logo wear industry made from sustainable textiles, and were higher in the current period as the Company was active in developing new products.

Revenue and Gross Loss

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company generated $33,479 in revenues through the sale of goods with associated costs of $24,628. The Company recognized a gross profit of $8,851 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company generated $28,378 in revenues through the sale of goods with associated costs of $23,698. The Company recognized a gross profit of $4,680 for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

Operating expenses

 

The Company incurred $421,651 in selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017, a $180,024 decrease from the $601,686 in selling, general and administrative expenses incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2016. This decrease is directly related to the limited cash resources which the Company had during the six months ending June 30, 2017. Selling, general and administrative expenses consist of expenses the Company incurs during day-to-day operations.

 

25 
 

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $90,645 of consulting expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses. The Company incurred $107,987 of consulting expenses during the six months ended June 30, 2016. Consulting expenses relate to the development of products within the corporate logo wear industry made from sustainable textiles.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $85,517 of legal, accounting and professional expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses, which is a $151,219 decrease from the $203,360 incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2016. Legal, accounting and professional expenses relate to the Company’s registration statement and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The main reason for the decrease in professional fees was the cost of the preparation of the Company’s Form S-1 registration statement during the prior period. Additionally, the Company did not have the resources in place to begin work on its required periodic reports during the six months ending June 30, 2017.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $71,594 of product development expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses, which is a $41,350 increase compared to the $30,244 incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2017. The product development costs relate to the development of products within the corporate logo wear industry made from sustainable textiles, and were higher in the current period as the Company was developing new products. 

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company incurred $28,476 of travel expenses, which are included under selling, general and administrative expenses, which is a $46,822 decrease from the $75,297 incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2016. Travel expenses relate to the efforts by management to meet with new customers and potential customers and vary from period-to-period. Over time the Company expects to see a leveling off of these costs; however, as the Company grows the Company anticipates these expenses increasing.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded $110,000 of non-cash compensation related to the stock issuance to the Company’s COO and a consultant, which is included under selling, general and administrative expenses. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded $117,000 of non-cash compensation related to the stock issuance to the Company’s COO and a consultant.

 

Other income (expense)

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported $1,377,164 of interest expense compared to $31,919 reported during the six months ended June 30, 2016. The interest expense relates to the promissory notes outstanding as described in greater detail in Notes 3 and 4 to the financial statements included herein.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recognized income of $912,422 in connection with the change in fair value of derivative in connection with the valuation of the derivative liabilities (see Notes 4 and 5 of the financial statements included herein), compared to an expense of $593,704 in change in fair value of derivative for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

The Company recognized a $561,447 gain in connection with insufficient shares being available for the Company’s derivative liability for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to an expense of $905,980 in connection therewith for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

 

The Company had a $41,817 gain on the conversion of debt in connection with the conversion of amounts due under the terms of certain convertible promissory notes into shares of our common stock for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

26 
 

 

Net income (loss)

 

The Company had a net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017 of $274,279, a $1,854,330 increase from the net loss of $2,128,609 incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in net loss was primarily due to the reasons described above, mainly, the non-cash derivative liability gain.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company had an accumulated deficit at June 30, 2017 of approximately $14.8 million. The Company had net loss of $274,279 during the six months ended June 30, 2017, had $16,000 of current assets as of June 30, 2017, consisting solely of prepaid expenses, had only $27,283 in total assets and has negative working capital of $2,099,816, as of June 30, 2017. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing or refinancing as may be required and, ultimately, to attain profitable operations. Management’s plans to eliminate the going concern situation include, but are not limited to, raising additional capital through the issuance of debt and equity (including the sale of additional convertible securities, which will likely be convertible into common stock at a discount to the trading price of the Company’s common stock), and improved cash flow management. Failure to raise additional capital or improve its performance in the next 12 months may cause the Company to significantly curtail its business activities and expansion plans within the next twelve months. The Company may be unable to sell additional debt, convertible debt and/or equity on favorable terms, if at all, and the sale of any such securities may cause substantial dilution to existing shareholders. In the event the Company is unable to fund its operations and expenses and satisfy outstanding liabilities in the future, it may be forced to liquidate assets, cease filing reports with the SEC or seek bankruptcy protection.

 

The Company had no cash as of June 30, 2017, compared to $47 as of December 31, 2016.

 

We had $27,283 of total assets as of June 30, 2017, consisting solely of fixed assets, net of $11,283 and $16,000 of prepaid expenses.

 

We had total liabilities of $2,315,816 as of June 30, 2017, including current liabilities consisting of accounts payable and accrued expenses of $317,052, accrued interest on our convertible notes of $179,598, notes payable of $82,500, convertible notes, net of discount, of $342,538 and derivative liability of $1,194,128, and long-term liabilities consisting of notes payable, net of current portion, of $200,000.

 

Our outstanding promissory notes, convertible notes and derivative liability are described in greater detail in Notes 3, 4 and 5, to the financial statements attached herein and under “Part I - Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Recent Transactions”, above.

 

Cash Flows

 

   Six Months Ending
June 30,
 
   2017   2016 
Net cash used by operating activities  $(310,101)  $(347,339)
Net cash used by investing activities  $   $13,928 
Net cash provided by financing activities  $310,054   $345,956 

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 of $310,101 was mainly due to non-cash items including a derivative liability of $561,447, offset by $912,423 of gain on derivative revaluation and $126,000 of common stock issued for services.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was solely due to the purchase of fixed assets of $13,928. We had no net cash used by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

27 
 

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2016, was from the sale of Series B Preferred Stock of $250,000 and $95,956 of proceeds from note payable sales, net of repayments. We had $310,054 of net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 related to proceeds from notes payable, net of repayments.

 

From time to time, we may attempt to raise capital through either equity or debt offerings. Our capital requirements will depend on many factors, including, among other things, the rate at which our business grows, with corresponding demands for working capital and expansion capacity. We could be required, or may elect, to seek additional funding through public or private equity, debt financing or bank financing.

 

Critical Estimates and Judgments

 

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to receivables and accrued expenses. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable based on the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The most significant accounting estimates inherent in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements include estimates as to the appropriate carrying value of the Company’s intangible assets, the amount of stock compensation, and the amount of accrued liabilities that are not readily attainable from other sources. These accounting policies are described at relevant sections in this discussion and analysis and in the notes to the consolidated financial statements.

 

The discussion in this report contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The Company’s future actual results may differ materially from the results discussed herein, including those in the forward-looking statements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Pursuant to Item 305(e) of Regulation S-K (§ 229.305(e)), the Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined by Rule 229.10(f)(1).

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established and maintain a system of disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Commission and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO), to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

 

Management, with the participation of our CEO and CFO, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. As of June 30, 2017, based on the evaluation of these disclosure controls and procedures, and in light of the reasons described below, our CEO and CFO have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act, is recorded properly, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Commission and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

 

28 
 

 

Management has identified the following control deficiencies that represent material weaknesses as of June 30, 2017:

 

i) Lack of segregation of duties. At this time, our resources and size prevent us from being able to employ sufficient resources to enable us to have adequate segregation of duties within our internal control system. Management will periodically reevaluate this situation.

 

ii) Lack of an independent audit committee. Although the Board of Directors serves as an audit committee, it is not comprised solely of independent directors. We may establish an audit committee comprised solely of independent directors when we have sufficient capital resources and working capital to attract qualified independent directors and to maintain such a committee.

 

iii) Insufficient number of independent directors. At the present time, our Board of Directors does not consist of a majority of independent directors, a factor that is counter to corporate governance practices as set forth by the rules of various stock exchanges.

 

Due to a lack of financial resources, we are not able to, and do not intend to, immediately take any action to remediate these material weaknesses. We will not be able to do so until we acquire sufficient financing to do so. We will implement further controls as circumstances, cash flow, and working capital permit. Notwithstanding the assessment that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective and that there were material weaknesses as identified in this report, we believe that our financial statements fairly present our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods covered thereby in all material respects.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended June 30, 2017, that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting, including any corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses.

 

29 
 

 

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

Although we may, from time to time, be involved in litigation and claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business, we are not currently a party to any material legal proceeding. In addition, we are not aware of any material legal or governmental proceedings against us, or contemplated to be brought against us.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

There have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, filed with the Commission on May 22, 2017, under the heading “Risk Factors”, except as provided below, and investors should review the risks provided in the Form 10-K and below, prior to making an investment in the Company. The business, financial condition and operating results of the Company can be affected by a number of factors, whether currently known or unknown, including but not limited to those described in the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, under “Risk Factors” and below, any one or more of which could, directly or indirectly, cause the Company’s actual financial condition and operating results to vary materially from past, or from anticipated future, financial condition and operating results. Any of these factors, in whole or in part, could materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition, operating results and stock price.

 

There is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has had only limited revenues since inception. The Company had an accumulated deficit at June 30, 2017 of approximately $14.5 million. The Company had net income of $11,478 during the six months ended June 30, 2017, had $16,000 of current assets as of June 30, 2017, consisting solely of prepaid expenses, had only $27,283 in total assets and has negative working capital of $1,802,776, as of June 30, 2017. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing or refinancing as may be required and, ultimately, to attain profitable operations. Management’s plans to eliminate the going concern situation include, but are not limited to, the raise of additional capital through issuance of debt and equity, improved cash flow management. If we are unable to raise additional funding our business would be jeopardized and the Company may not be able to continue. If we ceased operations, it is likely that all of our investors would lose their investment.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

On February 9, 2017, the Company entered into an Advertising Services Agreement (the “Advertising Agreement”) with Cicero Consulting Group, LLC (“Cicero”), pursuant to which Cicero agreed to provide marketing and advertising services to the Company for a term of six months. In consideration for agreeing to provide those services we issued Cicero 32 million shares of common stock in April 2017.

 

We claim an exemption from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of the Securities Act, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder in connection with the issuance described above since the foregoing issuance did not involve a public offering, the recipient was (a) an “accredited investor”, and/or (b) had access to similar documentation and information as would be required in a Registration Statement under the Securities Act. With respect to the transaction described above, no general solicitation was made either by us or by any person acting on our behalf. The transaction was privately negotiated, and did not involve any kind of public solicitation. No underwriters or agents were involved in the foregoing issuance and we paid no underwriting discounts or commissions. The securities are subject to transfer restrictions, and the certificates evidencing the securities contain an appropriate legend stating that such securities have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold absent registration or pursuant to an exemption therefrom.

 

On April 7, 2017, we issued 21,481,481 shares of common stock to Anubis Capital Partners in connection with the conversion of debt.

 

From March 31, 2017 to June 30, 2017, Anubis Capital Partners converted $67,000 of the amount owed under certain convertible promissory note(s) held by Anubis Capital Partners into 77,481,481 shares of our common stock.

 

From March 31, 2017 to June 30, 2017, Carebourn converted $63,427 of the amount owed under certain convertible promissory note(s) held by Carebourn into 62,498,139 shares of our common stock.

 

From March 31, 2017 to June 30, 2017, Auctus converted $48,436 of the amount owed under certain convertible promissory note(s) held by Auctus into 70,119,900 shares of our common stock.

 

From July 1, 2017 to the date of this filing, Auctus converted an additional $5,189 of the amount owed under certain convertible promissory note(s) held by Auctus into 72,650,000 shares of our common stock.

 

In July 2017, a note holder converted $5,878 of the amount owed under certain convertible promissory note(s) held by the note holder into 33,781,609 shares of our common stock.

 

We claim an exemption from registration provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act for the debt conversions described above, as the securities were exchanged by us with our existing security holders in a transaction where no commission or other remuneration was paid or given directly or indirectly for soliciting such exchange.

 

30 
 

 

As described above under “Part I - Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Recent Transactions”, on April 12, 2017, we sold Sojourn the Sojourn Debenture, on April 17, 2017, we sold Carebourn the April 2017 Carebourn Convertible Note, on May 22, 2017 we sold Power Up, the Power Up Note, on May 25, 2017, we sold JSJ the JSJ Convertible Note, and on June 5, 2017, we sold Auctus, the Auctus Convertible Note. The notes and debenture are convertible into our common stock at a discount to the trading price of our common stock as described in greater detail above. We claim an exemption from registration for the issuance of such convertible securities pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of the Securities Act, since the foregoing issuances did not involve a public offering, the recipients were (i) “accredited investors”; and/or (ii) had access to similar documentation and information as would be required in a Registration Statement under the Securities Act, and the recipients acquired the securities for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof. The securities were offered without any general solicitation by us or our representatives. No underwriters or agents were involved in the foregoing issuance and we paid no underwriting discounts or commissions. The securities sold are subject to transfer restrictions, and the certificates evidencing the securities contain an appropriate legend stating that such securities have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold absent registration or pursuant to an exemption therefrom. The securities were not registered under the Securities Act and such securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.

Item 5. Other Information

 

Effective on August 13, 2017, our Board of Directors and George J. Powell, III, our Chief Executive Officer, Interim Chief Financial Officer, Secretary and Director, and the holder of all 1,000 shares of our outstanding Series A Preferred Stock, which provide the holder thereof the power to vote on all stockholder matters (including, but not limited to at every meeting of the stockholders of the Company and upon any action taken by stockholders of the Company with or without a meeting) equal to fifty-one percent (51%) of the total vote, approved the adoption of the Code Green Apparel Corp. 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). While the Plan went into effect on August 13, 2017, the approval of the Plan by Mr. Powell, in accordance with Rule 14c-2 of the Exchange Act, will be effective no earlier than forty (40) days after the date notice of the internet availability of an Information Statement disclosing such approval, and other items, is first sent to stockholders, which we expect to be on or around approximately September 25, 2017.

 

The material terms of the Plan are described below.

 

What is the purpose of the Plan?

 

The Plan is intended to secure for the Company the benefits arising from ownership of the Company’s common stock by the employees, officers, directors and consultants of the Company, all of whom are and will be responsible for the Company’s future growth. The Plan is designed to help attract and retain for the Company, qualified personnel for positions of exceptional responsibility, to reward employees, officers, directors and consultants for their services to the Company and to motivate such individuals through added incentives to further contribute to the success of the Company.

 

31 
 

 

Who is eligible to participate in the Plan?

 

The Plan provides an opportunity for any employee, officer, director or consultant of the Company, subject to any limitations provided by federal or state securities laws, to receive (i) incentive stock options (to eligible employees only); (ii) nonqualified stock options; (iii) restricted stock; (iv) stock awards; (v) shares in performance of services; or (vi) any combination of the foregoing. In making such determinations, the Board of Directors may take into account the nature of the services rendered by such person, his or her present and potential future contribution to the Company’s success, and such other factors as the Board of Directors in its discretion shall deem relevant. Incentive stock options granted under the Plan are intended to qualify as “incentive stock options” within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). Nonqualified (non-statutory stock options) granted under the Plan are not intended to qualify as incentive stock options under the Code. See “Federal Income Tax Consequences” below for a discussion of the principal federal income tax consequences of awards under the Plan.

 

No incentive stock option may be granted under the Plan to any person who, at the time of the grant, owns (or is deemed to own) stock possessing more than 10% of the total combined voting power of our Company or any affiliate of our Company, unless the exercise price is at least 110% of the fair market value of the stock subject to the option on the date of grant and the term of the option does not exceed five years from the date of grant.

 

Who will administer the Plan?

 

The Plan will be administered by the Board of Directors of the Company. The Board will have the exclusive right to interpret and construe the Plan, to select the eligible persons who shall receive an award, and to act in all matters pertaining to the grant of an award and the determination and interpretation of the provisions of the related award agreement, including, without limitation, the determination of the number of shares subject to stock options and the option period(s) and option price(s) thereof, the number of shares of restricted stock or shares subject to stock awards or performance shares subject to an award, the vesting periods (if any) and the form, terms, conditions and duration of each award, and any amendment thereof consistent with the provisions of the Plan.

 

How much common stock is subject to the Plan?

 

Subject to adjustment in connection with the payment of a stock dividend, a stock split or subdivision or combination of the shares of common stock, or a reorganization or reclassification of the Company’s common stock, the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock which may be issued pursuant to awards under the Plan is 75,000,000 shares. Such shares of common stock will be made available from the authorized and unissued shares of the Company.

 

If shares of common stock subject to an option or performance award granted under the Plan expire or otherwise terminate without being exercised (or exercised in full), such shares will become available again for grants under the Plan. If shares of restricted stock awarded under the Plan are forfeited to us or repurchased by us, the number of shares forfeited or repurchased will again be available under the Plan. Where the exercise price of an option granted under the Plan is paid by means of the optionee’s surrender of previously owned shares of common stock, or our withholding of shares otherwise issuable upon exercise of the option as may be permitted under the Plan, only the net number of shares issued and which remain outstanding in connection with such exercise will be deemed “issued” and no longer available for issuance under the Plan.

 

Does the Company have any present plans to grant or issue securities pursuant to the Plan?

 

The Company cannot determine the amounts of awards that will be granted under the Plan or the benefits of any awards to the executive officers as a group, or employees who are not executive officers as a group. Under the terms of the Plan, the number of awards to be granted is within the discretion of the Board of Directors.

 

32 
 

 

The Board of Directors may issue Options, shares of restricted stock or other awards under the Plan for such consideration as determined in their sole discretion, subject to applicable law.

 

What will be the exercise price, vesting terms and expiration date of options and awards under the Plan?

 

The Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, will determine the exercise price of any Options granted under the Plan which exercise price will be set forth in the agreement evidencing the Option, provided however that at no time will the exercise price be less than $0.001 par value per share of the Company’s common stock. Also, the exercise price of incentive stock options may not be less than the fair market value of the common stock subject to the option on the date of the grant and, in some cases (see “Who is eligible to participate in the Plan?” above), may not be less than 110% of such fair market value. The exercise price of non-statutory options also may not be less than the fair market value of the common stock on the date of grant. The exercise price of options granted under the Plan must be paid either in cash at the time the option is exercised or, at the discretion of our Board, (i) by delivery of already-owned shares of our common stock, (ii) pursuant to a deferred payment arrangement, (iii) pursuant to a net exercise arrangement, or (iv) pursuant to a cashless exercise as permitted under applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Options and other awards granted under the Plan may be exercisable in cumulative increments, or “vest,” as determined by our Board. Our Board has the power to accelerate the time as of which an option may vest or be exercised. Shares of restricted stock acquired under a restricted stock purchase or grant agreement may, but need not, be subject to forfeiture to us or other restrictions that will lapse in accordance with a vesting schedule to be determined by the Board of Directors. In the event a recipient’s employment or service with our Company terminates, any or all of the shares of common stock held by such recipient that have not vested as of the date of termination under the terms of the restricted stock agreement may be forfeited to our Company in accordance with such restricted stock agreement.

 

The expiration date of Options and other awards granted under the Plan will be determined by our Board of Directors. The maximum term of options and performance shares under the Plan is ten years, except that in certain cases the maximum term is five years.

 

What equitable adjustments will be made in the event of certain corporate transactions?

 

Upon the occurrence of:

 

  (i) the adoption of a plan of merger or consolidation of the Company with any other corporation or association as a result of which the holders of the voting capital stock of the Company as a group would receive less than 50% of the voting capital stock of the surviving or resulting corporation;
     
  (ii) the approval by the Board of Directors of an agreement providing for the sale or transfer (other than as security for obligations of the Company) of substantially all of the assets of the Company; or
     
  (iii) in the absence of a prior expression of approval by the Board of Directors, the acquisition of more than 20% of the Company’s voting capital stock by any person within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act (other than the Company or a person that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, the Company);

 

and unless otherwise provided in the award agreement with respect to a particular award, all outstanding stock options will become immediately exercisable in full, subject to any appropriate adjustments, and will remain exercisable for the remaining option period, regardless of any provision in the related award agreement limiting the ability to exercise such stock option or any portion thereof for any length of time. All outstanding performance shares with respect to which the applicable performance period has not been completed will be paid out as soon as practicable; and all outstanding shares of restricted stock with respect to which the restrictions have not lapsed will be deemed vested and all such restrictions will be deemed lapsed and the restriction period ended.

Additionally, after the merger of one or more corporations into the Company, any merger of the Company into another corporation, any consolidation of the Company and one or more corporations, or any other corporate reorganization of any form involving the Company as a party thereto and involving any exchange, conversion, adjustment or other modification of the outstanding shares of the common stock, each participant will, at no additional cost, be entitled, upon any exercise of such participant’s stock option, to receive, in lieu of the number of shares as to which such stock option will then be so exercised, the number and class of shares of stock or other securities or such other property to which such participant would have been entitled to pursuant to the terms of the agreement of merger or consolidation or reorganization, if at the time of such merger or consolidation or reorganization, such participant had been a holder of record of a number of shares of common stock equal to the number of shares as to which such stock option will then be so exercised.

 

What happens to options upon termination of employment or other relationships?

 

The incentive stock options will lapse and cease to be exercisable upon the termination of service of an employee or director as defined in the Plan, or within such period following a termination of service as will have been determined by the Board and set forth in the related award agreement; provided, further, that such period will not exceed the period of time ending on the date three (3) months following a termination of service. Non-incentive stock options are governed by the related award agreements.

 

Will adjustments be made for tax withholding?

 

To the extent provided by the terms of an option or other award, a participant may satisfy any federal, state or local tax withholding obligation relating to the exercise of such option, or award by a cash payment upon exercise, or in the discretion of our Board of Directors, by authorizing our Company to withhold a portion of the stock otherwise issuable to the participant, by delivering already-owned shares of our common stock or by a combination of these means.

 

Federal income tax consequences?

 

The following is a summary of the principal United States federal income tax consequences to the recipient and our Company with respect to participation in the Plan. This summary is not intended to be exhaustive, and does not discuss the income tax laws of any city, state or foreign jurisdiction in which a participant may reside.

 

Incentive Stock Options

 

There will be no federal income tax consequences to either us or the recipient upon the grant of an incentive stock option. Upon exercise of the option, the excess of the fair market value of the stock over the exercise price, or the “spread,” will be added to the alternative minimum tax base of the recipient unless a disqualifying disposition is made in the year of exercise. A disqualifying disposition is the sale of the stock prior to the expiration of two years from the date of grant and one year from the date of exercise. If the shares of common stock are disposed of in a disqualifying disposition, the recipient will realize taxable ordinary income in an amount equal to the spread at the time of exercise, and we will be entitled (subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation) to a federal income tax deduction equal to such amount. If the recipient sells the shares of common stock after the specified periods, the gain or loss on the sale of the shares will be long-term capital gain or loss and we will not be entitled to a federal income tax deduction.

 

Non-statutory Stock Options and Restricted Stock Awards

 

Non-statutory stock options and restricted stock awards granted under the Plan generally have the following federal income tax consequences.

 

34 
 

 

There are no tax consequences to the participant or us by reason of the grant. Upon acquisition of the stock, the recipient will recognize taxable ordinary income equal to the excess, if any, of the stock’s fair market value on the acquisition date over the purchase price. However, to the extent the stock is subject to “a substantial risk of forfeiture” (as defined in Section 83 of the Code), the taxable event will be delayed until the forfeiture provision lapses unless the recipient elects to be taxed on receipt of the stock by making a Section 83(b) election within 30 days of receipt of the stock. If such election is not made, the recipient generally will recognize income as and when the forfeiture provision lapses, and the income recognized will be based on the fair market value of the stock on such future date. On that date, the recipient’s holding period for purposes of determining the long-term or short-term nature of any capital gain or loss recognized on a subsequent disposition of the stock will begin. If a recipient makes a Section 83(b) election, the recipient will recognize ordinary income equal to the difference between the stock’s fair market value and the purchase price, if any, as of the date of receipt and the holding period for purposes of characterizing as long-term or short-term any subsequent gain or loss will begin at the date of receipt.

 

With respect to employees, we are generally required to withhold from regular wages or supplemental wage payments an amount based on the ordinary income recognized. Subject to the requirement of reasonableness, the provisions of Section 162(m) of the Code and the satisfaction of a tax reporting obligation, we will generally be entitled to a business expense deduction equal to the taxable ordinary income realized by the participant.

 

Upon disposition of the stock, the recipient will recognize a capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the selling price and the sum of the amount paid for such stock plus any amount recognized as ordinary income with respect to the stock. Such gain or loss will be long-term or short-term depending on whether the stock has been held for more than one year.

 

Potential Limitation on Company Deductions

 

Section 162(m) of the Code denies a deduction to any publicly held corporation for compensation paid to certain senior executives of our Company (a “covered employee”) in a taxable year to the extent that compensation to such employees exceeds $1,000,000. It is possible that compensation attributable to awards, when combined with all other types of compensation received by a covered employee from our company, may cause this limitation to be exceeded in any particular year.

 

Certain kinds of compensation, including qualified “performance-based compensation,” are disregarded for purposes of the deduction limitation. In accordance with Treasury Regulations issued under Section 162(m), compensation attributable to stock options will qualify as performance-based compensation if the award is granted by a committee solely comprising “outside directors” and, among other things, the plan contains a per-employee limitation on the number of shares for which such awards may be granted during a specified period, the per-employee limitation is approved by the stockholders, and the exercise price of the award is no less than the fair market value of the stock on the date of grant. Awards to purchase restricted stock under the Plan will not qualify as performance-based compensation under the Treasury Regulations issued under Section 162(m).

 

May awards under the Plan be modified after they are granted?

 

Yes. The Board may reprice any stock option without the approval of the stockholders of the Company. For this purpose, “reprice” means (i) any of the following or any other action that has the same effect: (A) lowering the exercise price of a stock option after it is granted, (B) any other action that is treated as a repricing under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), or (C) cancelling a stock option at a time when its exercise price exceeds the fair market value of the underlying common stock, in exchange for another stock option, restricted stock or other equity, unless the cancellation and exchange occurs in connection with a merger, acquisition, spin-off or other similar corporate transaction; and (ii) any other action that is considered to be a repricing under formal or informal guidance issued by an exchange or market on which the Company’s common stock then trades or is quoted. In addition to, and without limiting the above, the Board may permit the voluntary surrender of all or a portion of any stock option granted under the Plan to be conditioned upon the granting to the participant of a new stock option for the same or a different number of shares of common stock as the stock option surrendered, or may require such voluntary surrender as a condition precedent to a grant of a new stock option to such participant. Subject to the provisions of the Plan, such new stock option will be exercisable at such option price, during such option period and on such other terms and conditions as are specified by the Board at the time the new stock option is granted. Upon surrender, the stock options surrendered will be canceled and the shares of common stock previously subject to them will be available for the grant of other stock options.

May the Plan be modified, amended or terminated?

 

The Board of Directors may adopt, establish, amend and rescind such rules, regulations and procedures as it may deem appropriate for the proper administration of the Plan, make all other determinations which are, in the Board’s judgment, necessary or desirable for the proper administration of the Plan, amend the Plan or a stock award as provided in Article XI of the Plan, and/or terminate or suspend the Plan as provided in Article XI thereof. Our Board of Directors may also amend the Plan at any time, and from time to time. However, except as relates to adjustments upon changes in common stock, no amendment will be effective unless approved by our stockholders to the extent stockholder approval is necessary to preserve incentive stock option treatment for federal income tax purposes. Our Board of Directors may submit any other amendment to the Plan for stockholder approval if it concludes that stockholder approval is otherwise advisable.

 

Unless sooner terminated, the Plan will terminate ten years from the date of its adoption by our Board, i.e., in August 2027.
