NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1 ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

  a) Organization

 

On May 12, 2016, QPAGOS (formerly known as Asiya Pearls, Inc.), a Nevada corporation (“QPAGOS”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Qpagos Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Qpagos Corporation”), and Qpagos Merge, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of QPAGOS (“Merger Sub”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, on May 12, 2016, the merger was consummated and Qpagos Corporation and Merger Sub merged (the “Merger”), with Qpagos Corporation continuing as the surviving corporation of the Merger.

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, upon consummation of the Merger, each share of Qpagos Corporation’s capital stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger was converted into the right to receive two shares of QPAGOS common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”). Additionally, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, upon consummation of the Merger, QPAGOS assumed all of Qpagos Corporation’s warrants issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger, which are now exercisable for approximately 6,219,200 shares of Common Stock, respectively. Prior to and as a condition to the closing of the Merger, the then-current QPAGOS stockholder of 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock agreed to return to QPAGOS 4,975,000 shares of Common Stock held by such holder to QPAGOS and the then-current QPAGOS stockholder retained an aggregate of 25,000 shares of Common Stock and the other stockholders of QPAGOS retained 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock. Therefore, immediately following the Merger, Qpagos Corporation’s former stockholders held 49,929,000 shares of QPAGOS common stock which represented approximately 91% of the outstanding Common Stock.

 

The Merger is being treated as a reverse acquisition of QPAGOS, a public shell company, for financial accounting and reporting purposes. As such, Qpagos Corporation is treated as the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes while QPAGOS is treated as the acquired entity for accounting and financial reporting purposes. Further, as a result, the historical financial statements that are reflected in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and that will be reflected in the Company’s future financial statements filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) will be those of Qpagos Corporation, and the Company’s assets, liabilities and results of operations will be consolidated with the assets, liabilities and results of operations of Qpagos Corporation.

 

Qpagos Corporation was incorporated on May 1, 2015 under the laws of Delaware under the name Qpagos Corporation as the holding company for two 99.99% owned operating subsidiaries, Qpagos, S.A.P.I. de C.V. and Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V. Each of these entities were incorporated in November 2013 in Mexico.

 

Qpagos, S.A.P.I. de C.V. was formed to process payment transactions for service providers it contracts with, and Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V. was formed to deploy and operate kiosks as a distributor.

 

On May 27, 2016, Asiya changed its name to QPAGOS. QPAGOS and its direct and indirect subsidiaries Qpagos Corporation, Qpagos, S.A.P.I. de C.V. and Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V., will be referred to hereafter as “the Company”.

 

On June 1, 2016, the board of directors changed the Company’s fiscal year end from October 31 to December 31.

 

  b) Description of the business

 

QPAGOS, through its indirect subsidiaries Qpagos, S.A.P.I. de C.V. and Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V., provides physical and virtual payment services to the Mexican market. The Company provides an integrated network of kiosks, terminals and payment channels that enable consumers in Mexico to deposit cash, convert it into a digital form and remit the funds to any merchant in our network quickly and securely. The Company helps consumers and merchants connect more efficiently in markets and consumer segments, such as Mexico, that are largely cash-based and lack convenient alternatives for consumers to pay for goods and services in physical, online and mobile environments. For example, the Company’s licensed technology can be used to pay bills, add minutes to mobile phones, purchase transportation tickets, shop online or at a retail store, buy digital services or send money to a friend or relative.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

 

  a) Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, these unaudited condensed financial statements do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments), which the Company considers necessary, for a fair presentation of those financial statements. The results of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 may not necessarily be indicative of results that may be expected for any succeeding quarter or for the entire fiscal year. The information contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of QPAGOS for the year ended December 31, 2016, included in the current report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 17, 2017.

 

All amounts referred to in the notes to the consolidated financial statements are in United States Dollars ($) unless stated otherwise.

 

  b) Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary and its indirect subsidiaries. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements. The entities included in these consolidated financial statements are as follows:

 

QPAGOS – Parent Company

Qpagos Corporation – 100% owned

Qpagos, S.A.P.I de C.V., a Mexican entity (99.996% owned)

Redpag Electrónicos, S.A.P.I. de C.V., a Mexican entity (99.990% owned)

 

  c) Mexican Operations

 

The financial statements of the Company’s Mexican operations are measured using local currencies as their functional currencies.

 

The Company translates the assets and liabilities of its Mexican subsidiaries at the exchange rates in effect at year end and the results of operations at the average rate throughout the year. The translation adjustments are recorded directly as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, while transaction gains (losses) are included in net income (loss). All sales to customers are in Mexico.

 

  d) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions, which are evaluated on an ongoing basis, that affect the amounts reported in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the amounts of revenues and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from those estimates and judgments. In particular, significant estimates and judgments include those related to: the estimated useful lives for plant and equipment, the fair value of warrants and stock options granted for services or compensation, estimates of the probability and potential magnitude of contingent liabilities, derivative liabilities, the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets due to continuing operating losses, those related to revenue recognition and the allowance for doubtful accounts.

 

Making estimates requires management to exercise significant judgment. It is at least reasonably possible that the estimate of the effect of a condition, situation or set of circumstances that existed at the date of the consolidated financial statements, which management considered in formulating its estimate could change in the near-term due to one or more future confirming events. Accordingly, the actual results could differ significantly from our estimates.

  e) Contingencies

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur.

 

The Company’s management assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment.

 

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material would be disclosed. Loss contingencies considered to be remote by management are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantee would be disclosed.

 

  f) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company adopted the guidance of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 for fair value measurements which clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities available at the measurement date.

 

Level 2-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3-Inputs are unobservable inputs which reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions on what assumptions the market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on the best available information.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash, accounts receivable, other current assets, other assets, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, and notes payable, approximate fair value due to the relatively short period to maturity for these instruments. The Company did not identify any other assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheets at fair value in accordance with the accounting guidance.

 

ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments” allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value (fair value option). The fair value option may be elected on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is irrevocable, unless a new election date occurs. If the fair value option is elected for an instrument, unrealized gains and losses for that instrument should be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date. The Company did not elect to apply the fair value option to any outstanding instruments.

 

  g) Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations will be subject to significant risk and uncertainties including financial, operational, regulatory and other risks associated, including the potential risk of business failure. The recent global economic crisis has caused a general tightening in the credit markets, lower levels of liquidity, increases in the rates of default and bankruptcy, and extreme volatility in credit, equity and fixed income markets. These conditions not only limit the Company’s access to capital, but also make it difficult for its customers, vendors and the Company to accurately forecast and plan future business activities.

 

The Company’s operations are carried out in Mexico. Accordingly, the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environment in Mexico and by the general state of that economy. The Company’s results may be adversely affected by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things.

  h) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. (“ASU’’) 2017-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation, an amendment to Topic 718. The amendments in this Update provide guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. 2. An entity should account for the effects of a modification unless all the following are met:

 

1.The fair value (or calculated value or intrinsic value, if such an alternative measurement method is used) of the modified award is the same as the fair value (or calculated value or intrinsic value, if such an alternative measurement method is used) of the original award immediately before the original award is modified. If the modification does not affect any of the inputs to the valuation technique that the entity uses to value the award, the entity is not required to estimate the value immediately before and after the modification.

2.The vesting conditions of the modified award are the same as the vesting conditions of the original award immediately before the original award is modified.

3.The classification of the modified award as an equity instrument or a liability instrument is the same as the classification of the original award immediately before the original award is modified.

 

The current disclosure requirements in Topic 718 apply regardless of whether an entity is required to apply modification accounting under the amendments in this Update. The amendments in this Update are effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted and should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date. The amendments proposed in this ASU are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-10, service concession Arrangements, an amendment to Topic 853. Topic 853 provides guidance for operating entities when they enter into a service concession arrangement with a public-sector grantor who both:

 

1.Controls or has the ability to modify or approve the services that the operating entity must provide with the infrastructure, to whom it must provide them, and at what price

2.Controls, through ownership, beneficial entitlement, or otherwise, any residual interest in the infrastructure at the end of the term of the arrangement.

 

In a service concession arrangement within the scope of Topic 853, the operating entity should not account for the infrastructure as a lease or as property, plant, and equipment. An operating entity should refer to other Topics to account for various aspects of a service concession arrangement. For example, an operating entity should account for revenue relating to construction, upgrade, or operation services in accordance with Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, or Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

 

The amendments in this Update apply to the accounting by operating entities for service concession arrangements within the scope of Topic 853. These updates are effective when the Company adopts the updates to Topic 606. The amendments proposed in this ASU are not expected to have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Any new accounting standards, not disclosed above, that have been issued or proposed by FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.

 

  i) Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

The Company minimizes credit risk associated with cash by periodically evaluating the credit quality of its primary financial institution in the United States. The balance at times may exceed federally insured limits. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, cash balances in the United States did not exceed the federally insured limit.

  j) Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Accounts receivable are reported at realizable value, net of allowances for doubtful accounts, which is estimated and recorded in the period the related revenue is recorded. The Company has a standardized approach to estimate and review the collectability of its receivables based on a number of factors, including the period they have been outstanding. Historical collection and payer reimbursement experience is an integral part of the estimation process related to allowances for doubtful accounts. In addition, the Company regularly assesses the state of its billing operations in order to identify issues, which may impact the collectability of these receivables or reserve estimates. Revisions to the allowance for doubtful accounts estimates are recorded as an adjustment to bad debt expense. Receivables deemed uncollectible are charged against the allowance for doubtful accounts at the time such receivables are written-off. Recoveries of receivables previously written-off are recorded as credits to the allowance for doubtful accounts. There were no recoveries during the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

  k) Cost Method Investments

 

Investee companies not accounted for under the consolidation or the equity method are accounted for under the cost method of accounting. Under this method, the Company’s share of earnings or losses of such investee companies is not included in the condensed consolidated balance sheet or statement of comprehensive loss. However, impairment charges are recognized in the condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive loss. If circumstances suggest that the value of the investee company has subsequently recovered, such recovery is not recorded. There is no impairment of investment at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

 

  l) Inventory

 

The Company primarily values inventories at the lower of cost or market applied on a first-in, first-out basis. The Company identifies and writes down its excess and obsolete inventories to net realizable value based on usage forecasts, order volume and inventory aging. With the development of new products, the Company also rationalizes its product offerings and will write-down discontinued product to the lower of cost or net realizable value.

 

  m) Advances received from customers

 

Other than the sale of kiosks to customers, the provision of services through our kiosks is conducted on a cash basis. Customers are required to deposit cash with the Company to meet anticipated demand for services provided through kiosks either owned or operated by them. The services provided through the customer owned or operated kiosks are deducted from the deposits held on their behalf, the Company requires that these deposits be replenished as and when the services are provided.

 

  n) Revenue Recognition

 

The Company’s revenue recognition policy is consistent with the requirements of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 605, Revenue Recognition (ASC 605). In general, the Company records revenue when it is realized, or realizable and earned. The Company considers revenue to be realized, or realizable and earned when, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the products or services have been approved by the customer after delivery and/or installation acceptance or performance of services; the sales price is fixed or determinable within the contract; and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

The Company has the following sources of revenue which is recognized on the basis described below.

 

  Revenue from the sale of services.

 

Prepaid services are acquired from providers and is sold to end-users through kiosks that the Company owns or kiosks that are owned by third parties. The Company recognizes the revenue on the sale of these services when the end-user deposits funds into the terminal and the prepaid service is delivered to the end-user. The revenue is recognized at the gross value, including margin, of the prepaid service to the Company, net of any value-added tax which is collected on behalf of the Mexican Revenue Authorities.

  n) Revenue Recognition (continued)

 

  Payment processing provided to end-users

 

The Company provides a secure means for end-users to pay for certain services, such as utilities through our kiosks. The Company earns either a fixed per-transaction fee or a fixed percentage of the service sold. The Company acts as a collection agent and recognizes the payment processing fee, net of any value-added taxes collected on behalf of the Mexican Revenue Authorities, when the funds are deposited into the kiosk and the customer has settled his liability or has acquired a prepaid service.

 

  Revenue from the sale of kiosks.

 

The Company imports, assembles and sell kiosks that are used to generate the revenues discussed above. Revenue is recognized on the full value of the kiosks sold, net of any valued added taxation collected on behalf of the Mexican Revenue Authorities, when the customer takes delivery of the kiosk and all the risks and rewards of ownership are passed to the customer.

 

The Company does not enter into any leasing of kiosks arrangements with customers and the Company does not generate any revenues from merchants who access its terminals as yet.

NOTES

 

A.To correct an error in classifying kiosks acquired in 2015 as inventory and available for sale, to property and equipment, along with the recording of related accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense.

 

4GOING CONCERN

 

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has incurred a loss since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $9,686,511 as of June 30, 2017 and has not generated sufficient revenue to cover its operating expenditure, raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance of the financial statements. In addition to operational expenses, as the Company executes its business plan, additional capital resources will be required. The Company will need to raise capital in the near term in order to continue operating and executing its business plan. The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company generating profitable operations in the future and/or obtaining the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. The Company’s plan is to expand its market penetration by deploying more kiosks through various channels, thereby increasing revenues. In addition, the Company intends to raise additional equity or loan funds to meet its short term working capital needs. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

10DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

 

Certain of the short-term convertible notes disclosed in note 9 above, have variable priced conversion rights with no fixed floor price and will re-price dependent on the share price performance over varying periods of time. This gives rise to a derivative financial liability, which was initially valued at inception of the convertible notes using a Black-Scholes valuation model. The value of this derivative financial liability was re-assessed at June 30, 2017 and 2016, and $118,472 and $0 was credited to the statement of operations and comprehensive loss, respectively. The value of the derivative liability will be re-assessed at each financial reporting period, with any movement thereon recorded in the statement of operations in the period in which it is incurred.

 

The following assumptions were used in the Black-Scholes valuation model:

 

    Six Months Ended      Year ended  
    June 30,     December 31,  
    2017     2016

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified in its entirety by our audited annual financial statements and the related notes thereto, each of which appear on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 17, 2017. This discussion contains certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as described under the heading “Forward-Looking Statements” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. For additional information regarding these risks and uncertainties, please see the disclosure under the heading “Risk Factors” elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations below is based upon only the financial performance of Qpagos.

 

Overview and Financial Condition

 

We are a provider of next generation physical and virtual payment services that we introduced to the Mexican market in the third quarter of 2014.

 

We provide an integrated network of kiosks, terminals and payment channels that enable consumers to deposit cash, convert it into a digital form and remit the funds to any merchant in our network quickly and securely. We help consumers and merchants connect more efficiently in markets and consumer segments, such as Mexico, that are largely cash-based and lack convenient alternatives for consumers to pay for goods and services in physical, online and mobile environments. For example, we license technology that can be used to pay bills, add minutes to mobile phones, purchase transportation tickets, shop online, buy digital services or send money to a friend or relative.

 

Our current focus is on Mexico which remains a cash-dominated society for retail consumer payments with approximately 80% of the value of personal payments exchanged in cash (Bank of Mexico). The penetration of electronic payment services, such as credit and debit cards and point of sale terminals, significantly lags behind more developed economies. We believe that opportunities for our services in Mexico are vast. With over 107 million mobile subscribers in Mexico, 85% of which are under prepaid plans, mobile top-up alone, was a $12 billion business in 2014 as reported by PwC Telecom in Mexico 2015, America Móvil 4Q’15. We believe that there is opportunity for growth in the Mexican market and have expanded our service providers beyond the mobile telephone operators to service providers of electricity, transportation, utilities, municipal services and taxes, consumer credit installments, insurance premiums, and many more. Altogether as of the second quarter of 2017 our platform had integrated over 160 such services.

 

Our primary strategy in Mexico to date has been the attraction of service providers as well as the deployment of kiosks through Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V., our kiosk management subsidiary. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, Qpagos Corporation generated net revenues of $1,944,468 from our operations in Mexico. Our primary sources of revenue are sales of prepaid services and payment processing fees. We also generate revenue from non-payment services such as kiosk sales. Qpagos Corporation currently has in excess of 160 service providers integrated into its payment gateway, which includes all mobile phone providers in Mexico as well as most utility companies, financial services, entertainment venues and others. As of June 30, 2017, we have deployed over 307 kiosks and terminals, and we service an additional 440 kiosks of an independent distributor. Our kiosks and terminals can be found at convenience stores, next to metro stations, retail stores, airport terminals, education centers, and malls in major urban centers, as well as many small and rural towns.

 

Management Discussion and Analysis of financial condition

 

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2017 and 2016, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of any contingent liabilities at the financial statement date and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. On an on-going basis, we review our estimates and assumptions. The estimates are based on our historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results are likely to differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016

 

Net revenue

 

Net revenues in our Mexican operations were $1,017,158 and $626,416 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 respectively, an increase of $390,742 or 62.4%. Our primary revenue generating operations are based in Mexico and our functional currency is the Mexican Peso. Our revenue in Mexican Pesos increased to MXN 18,874,012 from MXN 11,338,341 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, an increase of MXN 7,535,671 or 66.5%. The increase in revenue in MXN terms is primarily due to an increase in the volume of prepaid airtime sold, directly attributable to the increased deployment of kiosks during prior periods, and we also increased the number of our customers over the prior comparable period. The average US$ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior comparable period, from $18.1003 to $18.5556 or 2.5%, which results in a lower revenue growth in US $ terms of $25,054.

Cost of goods sold

 

Cost of goods sold in our Mexican operations were $1,004,901 and $607,237 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, an increase of $397,664 or 65.5%. Our cost of sales from our Mexican operations, in Mexican Pesos increased to MXN 18,646,580 from MXN 10,991,164 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, an increase of MXN 7,655,416 or 69.7%. The increase in cost of sales in MXN terms is primarily due to the increase in the volume of prepaid airtime sold which is directly attributable to the increased deployment of kiosks and its wholesale business during the prior periods. Cost of goods consists primarily of services acquired from third parties, such as prepaid air time and the cost of the kiosks and any retrofitted components. Also included in cost of sales is depreciation related to those kiosks that are used in the production of income. Depreciation expenses was $9,354 and $9,590, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, a decrease of $236. The average US $ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior period, from $18.1003 to $18.5556 or 2.5%, which results in a lower cost of sales in US $ terms of $25,280.

Derivative liability movements

 

Derivative liability movements were $366,242 and $0 for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The derivative liability arose due to the issuance of convertible securities with variable conversion prices and no floor conversion price.

There was no derivative liability as of June 30, 2016.

 

Foreign currency gain (loss)

 

The foreign currency gain (loss) was $97,475 and $(145,827) for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, an increase of $243,302. The increase is primarily due to foreign currency gains on other US$ denominated liabilities, such as intercompany balances due to a weakening of the US $ exchange rate between the period March 31, 2017 to June 30, 2017 as compared to a strengthening of the US $ exchange rate between the period March 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016.

 

Net loss

 

We incurred a net loss of $373,376 and $761,336, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, a decrease of $387,960 or 50.9%, primarily due to the decrease in operating expenses, the credit movement in the derivative liability and the foreign currency gain, offset by the additional interest expense, as discussed above.

We incurred an accumulated deficit of $9,686,511 through June 30, 2017 and incurred negative cash flow from operations of $650,802 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. We have spent, and need to continue to spend, substantial amounts in connection with implementing our business strategy, including our planned product development effort and will be required to raise additional funding.

We will need to generate additional revenue from operations and/or obtain additional financing to pursue our business strategy, repay our outstanding note obligations and take advantage of business opportunities that may arise. To meet our financing needs, we are considering multiple alternatives, including, but not limited to, additional equity financings and, debt financings and/or funding from partnerships. There can be no assurance that we will be able to complete any such transactions on acceptable terms or otherwise ad may have to significantly curtail our operations.

 

At June 30, 2017, we had cash of $11,197 and a negative working capital of $808,357. We believe that the current cash balances together with revenue anticipated to be generated from operations will not be sufficient to meet our current working capital needs and as mentioned above, we will seek further funding from either equity issues or further debt funding, should we not be successful, we may have to curtail our operations significantly.

 

We utilized cash of $650,802 and $1,015,258 in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, a decrease of $364,456 or 35.9%. The decrease is primarily due to a favorable movement of $659,367 between cash operating expenditure before working capital changes and an adverse movement in working capital flows of $(266,341) as compared to the prior comparable period.

 

We had minimal investment in property and equipment of $0 and $453 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016.

 

We funded our operations by utilizing our cash balances and raising an additional $973,500 through debt issuances. We repaid a convertible note of $77,000 for gross proceeds of $107,005, including interest and early settlement penalty on June 27, 2017.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2017 we raised the following funds:

 

  On July 10, 2017, we entered into a Convertible Promissory Note in the aggregate principal amount of $83,000. The Note has a maturity date of April 20, 2018 and a coupon of eight percent (8%) per annum.

 

  On July 26, 2017, we received a further advance of $109,165 from Strategic IR, however, the terms of this advance have not as yet been determined. The proceeds received from Strategic IR were used to repay the convertible note advanced by Labrys Fund, LP on July 26, 2017.

 

We have minimal commitments which include the office facility lease agreement with a future commitment as of June 30, 2017 of $19,573 for the remainder of 2017 and $39,146 for each year 2018 and 2019, subject to exchange rate changes.

 

We entered into an additional ten-year licensing agreement with the Licensor on May 1, 2015, whereby we are committed to pay an annual license fee in quarterly installments of $5,000 ($20,000 per annum) to the Licensor for an exclusive license for the Mexican market of certain revenue payment services.

 

Our primary financial commitments as of the date hereof are payments owed under the License Agreement. The minimum commitments due under the license agreement is summarized as follows:

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO concluded that due to a lack of segregation of duties and insufficient controls over review and accounting for certain complex transactions, that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2017 were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, was recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company intends to retain additional individuals to remedy the ineffective controls. We have begun to take actions that we believe will substantially remediate the material weaknesses identified. In response to the identification of our material weaknesses, we are in the process of expanding our finance and accounting staff. However, we cannot assure you that our internal control over financial reporting, as modified, will enable us to identify or avoid material weaknesses in the future.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Part II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time we may become involved in legal proceedings or be subject to claims arising in the ordinary course of our business. We are not presently a party to any legal proceedings that, if determined adversely to us, would individually or taken together have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results, financial condition or cash flows. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can have an adverse impact on us because of defense and settlement costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

  

The following information and updates should be read in conjunction with the information disclosed in Part 1, Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 17, 2017 (the “2016 Annual Report”). Except as disclosed below, there have been no material changes from the risk factors and uncertainties disclosed in our 2016 Annual Report.

 

Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry

 

We may continue to generate operating losses and experience negative cash flows and it is uncertain whether we will achieve profitability.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, we incurred a net loss of $929,314. We have an accumulated deficit of $9,686,511 through June 30, 2017. We expect to continue to incur operating losses until such time, if ever, as we are able to achieve sufficient levels of revenue from operations. There can be no assurance that we will ever generate significant sales or achieve profitability. Accordingly, the extent of future losses and the time required to achieve profitability, if ever, cannot be predicted at this point.

 

We also expect to experience negative cash flows for the foreseeable future as we fund our operating losses. As a result, we will need to generate significant revenues or raise additional financing in order to achieve and maintain profitability. We may not be able to generate these revenues or achieve profitability in the future. Our failure to achieve or maintain profitability would likely negatively impact the value of our securities and financing activities.

 

To date we have not successfully generated sufficient revenue to pay our operating expenses and have relied on proceeds for recent note issuances to pay the deficiency.

 

As of the date hereof, we have outstanding debt in the principal amount of $1,500,685 owed to 13 investors pursuant to the terms of various notes
