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 were exercisable for approximately 6,219,200 shares of Common Stock, respectively, as of the date of the Merger. 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 was treated as a reverse acquisition of QPAGOS, a public shell company, for financial accounting and reporting purposes. As such, Qpagos Corporation was treated as the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes while QPAGOS was treated as the acquired entity for accounting and financial reporting purposes.

 

QPAGOS Corporation (“QPAGOS”) was incorporated on May 1, 2015 under the laws of the state of Delaware to effectuate a reverse merger transaction with Qpagos, S.A.P.I. de C.V. (Qpagos) and Redpag Electrónicos S.A.P.I. de C.V. (Redpag). Each of the 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 Corporation, through its subsidiaries Qpagos S.A.P.I de C.V. (“Qpagos”) and Redpag Electronicos S.A.P.I de C.V. (“Redpag”), 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, our licensed technology can be used to pay bills, add minutes to mobile phones, purchase transportation and 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 consolidated 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 consolidated 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 consolidated 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 months and nine months ended September 30, 2018 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, 2017, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 17, 2018.

 

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

 

  b) Principles of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed 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 period end and the results of operations at the average rate throughout the period. 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.

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES (continued)

 

  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, 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 August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement.

 

The amendments in this Update modify the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements in Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement.

 

Removals

The following disclosure requirements were removed from Topic 820:

  1. The amount of and reasons for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

2.The policy for timing of transfers between levels.

3.The valuation processes for Level 3 fair value measurements.

4.For nonpublic entities, the changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in earnings for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period.

 

Modifications

The following disclosure requirements were modified in Topic 820:

1.In lieu of a rollforward for Level 3 fair value measurements, a nonpublic entity is required to disclose transfers into and out of Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and purchases and issues of Level 3 assets and liabilities.

2.For investments in certain entities that calculate net asset value, an entity is required to disclose the timing of liquidation of an investee’s assets and the date when restrictions from redemption might lapse only if the investee has communicated the timing to the entity or announced the timing publicly.

3.The amendments clarify that the measurement uncertainty disclosure is to communicate information about the uncertainty in measurement as of the reporting date.

 

Additions

The following disclosure requirements were added to Topic 820; however, the disclosures are not required for nonpublic entities:

1.The changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in other comprehensive income for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period.

2.The range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. For certain unobservable inputs, an entity may disclose other quantitative information (such as the median or arithmetic average) in lieu of the weighted average if the entity determines that other quantitative information would be a more reasonable and rational method to reflect the distribution of unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements.

 

In addition, the amendments eliminate at a minimum from the phrase an entity shall disclose at a minimum to promote the appropriate exercise of discretion by entities when considering fair value measurement disclosures and to clarify that materiality is an appropriate consideration of entities and their auditors when evaluating disclosure requirements.

 

The amendments in this Update are effective for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The amendments on changes in unrealized gains and losses, the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty should be applied prospectively for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the initial fiscal year of adoption. All other amendments should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented upon their effective date. Early adoption is permitted upon issuance of this Update. An entity is permitted to early adopt any removed or modified disclosures upon issuance of this Update and delay adoption of the additional disclosures until their effective date.

 

The Company does not anticipate that the implementation of this guidance would have a material impact on the Company.

  h) Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

In August , the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other Internal – Use Software (Subtopic 350-40).

 

The amendments in this Update align the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that include an internal use software license). The accounting for the service element of a hosting arrangement that is a service contract is not affected by the amendments in this Update.

 

The amendments in this Update require an entity (customer) in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract to follow the guidance in Subtopic 350-40 to determine which implementation costs to capitalize as an asset related to the service contract and which costs to expense. Costs to develop or obtain internal-use software that cannot be capitalized under Subtopic 350-40, such as training costs and certain data conversion costs, also cannot be capitalized for a hosting arrangement that is a service contract. Therefore, an entity (customer) in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract determines which project stage (that is, preliminary project stage, application development stage, or postimplementation stage) an implementation activity relates to. Costs for implementation activities in the application development stage are capitalized depending on the nature of the costs, while costs incurred during the preliminary project and postimplementation stages are expensed as the activities are performed.

 

The amendments in this Update also require the entity (customer) to expense the capitalized implementation costs of a hosting arrangement that is a service contract over the term of the hosting arrangement. The term of the hosting arrangement includes the non-cancellable period of the arrangement plus periods covered by (1) an option to extend the arrangement if the customer is reasonably certain to exercise that option, (2) an option to terminate the arrangement if the customer is reasonably certain not to exercise the termination option, and (3) an option to extend (or not to terminate) the arrangement in which exercise of the option is in the control of the vendor. The entity also is required to apply the existing impairment guidance in Subtopic 350-40 to the capitalized implementation costs as if the costs were long-lived assets. The amendments in this Update clarify that the capitalized implementation costs related to each module or component of a hosting arrangement that is a service contract are also subject to the guidance in Subtopic 360-10 on abandonment.

 

The amendments in this Update also require the entity to present the expense related to the capitalized implementation costs in the same line item in the statement of income as the fees associated with the hosting element (service) of the arrangement and classify payments for capitalized implementation costs in the statement of cash flows in the same manner as payments made for fees associated with the hosting element. The entity is also required to present the capitalized implementation costs in the statement of financial position in the same line item that a prepayment for the fees of the associated hosting arrangement would be presented.

 

The amendments in this Update are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments in this Update are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021. Early adoption of the amendments in this Update is permitted, including adoption in any interim period, for all entities.

 

The amendments in this Update should be applied either retrospectively or prospectively to all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption.

 

The Company does not anticipate that the implementation of this guidance would have a material impact on the Company.

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES (continued)

 

  h) Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

In October 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-17, Consolidation (Topic 810), Targeted Improvements to Related Party Guidance for Variable Interest Entities.

 

Under the amendments in this Update, a private company (reporting entity) may elect not to apply Variable Interest Entity (“VIE”) guidance to legal entities under common control (including common control leasing arrangements) if both the parent and the legal entity being evaluated for consolidation are not public business entities. The accounting alternative provides an accounting policy election that a private company will apply to all current and future legal entities under common control that meet the criteria for applying this alternative. In other words, the alternative cannot be applied to select common control arrangements that meet the criteria for applying this accounting alternative. If the alternative is elected, a private company should continue to apply other consolidation guidance, particularly the voting interest entity guidance, unless another scope exception applies.

 

Under the accounting alternative, a private company should provide detailed disclosures about its involvement with and exposure to the legal entity under common control. Effectively, the amendments in this Update expand the private company alternative provided by Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-07, Consolidation (Topic 810): Applying Variable Interest Entities Guidance to Common Control Leasing Arrangements, not to apply the VIE guidance to qualifying common control leasing arrangements. Because the private company accounting alternative in this Update applies to all common control arrangements that meet specific criteria and not just leasing arrangements, the amendments in Update 2014-07 are superseded by the amendments in this Update.

 

Decision-Making Fees

 

Indirect interests held through related parties in common control arrangements should be considered on a proportional basis for determining whether fees paid to decision makers and service providers are variable interests. This is consistent with how indirect interests held through related parties under common control are considered for determining whether a reporting entity must consolidate a VIE.

 

For entities other than private companies, the amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The amendments in this Update are effective for a private company for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. All entities are required to apply the amendments in this Update retrospectively with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings at the beginning of the earliest period presented. Early adoption is permitted.

 

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.

 

The Company does not anticipate that the implementation of this guidance would have a material impact on the Company.

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES (continued)

 

  i) Reporting by segment

 

No segmental information is required as the Company currently only has one segment of business, providing physical and virtual payment services in the Mexican Market.

 

  j) 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 September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

The Company assesses 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 September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, cash balances in the United States did not exceed the federally insured limit.

 

  k) 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 three months and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and December 2017.

 

  l) 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 operations and comprehensive loss. However, impairment charges are recognized in the condensed consolidated statement of operations and 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 September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

  m) Inventory

 

The Company primarily values inventories at net realizable value 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.

 

  n) Advances received from customers

 

Other than the sale of kiosks to customers, the provision of services through the Company’s 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.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES (continued)

 

  o) Plant and equipment

 

Plant and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Plant and equipment with costs greater than $1,000 are capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. The estimated useful lives of the assets are as follows:

 

Description Estimated Useful Life
Kiosks 7 years
Computer equipment 3 years
Leasehold improvements Lesser of estimated useful life or life of lease
Office equipment 10 years

 

The cost of repairs and maintenance is expensed as incurred. When assets are retired or disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gains or losses are included in income in the year of disposition.

 

  p) Intangibles

 

All of the Company’s intangible assets are subject to amortization. The Company evaluates the recoverability of intangible assets periodically by taking into account events or circumstances that may warrant revised estimates of useful lives or that indicate the asset may be impaired. Where intangibles are deemed to be impaired, the Company recognizes an impairment loss measured as the difference between the estimated fair value of the intangible and its book value.

 

i) License Agreements

 

License agreements acquired by the Company are reported at acquisition value less accumulated amortization and impairments.

 

ii) Amortization

 

Amortization is reported in the income statement on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the intangible assets, unless the useful life is indefinite. Amortizable intangible assets are amortized from the date that they are available for use. The estimated useful life of the license agreement is five years which is the expected period for which the Company expects to derive a benefit from the underlying license agreements.

 

  q) Long-Term Assets

 

Assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are considered impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets.

  r) Revenue Recognition

 

The Company’s revenue recognition policy is consistent with the requirements of Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 606, Revenue.

 

The Company has analyzed its revenue transaction pursuant to ASC 606, Revenue, and it has no material impact as a result of the transition from ASC 605 to 606. The Company’s revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to a customer, in an amount that reflects the consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for those services. The Company derives its revenues from the sale of its services, as defined below. The Company applies the following five steps in order to determine the appropriate amount of revenue to be recognized as it fulfills its obligations under each of its revenue transactions:

 

  i. identify the contract with a customer;

 

  ii. identify the performance obligations in the contract;

 

  iii. determine the transaction price;

 

  iv. allocate the transaction price to performance obligations in the contract; and

 

  v. recognize revenue as the performance obligation is satisfied.

2 ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES (continued)

 

  r) Revenue Recognition (continued)

 

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.

 

  Payment processing provided to end-users

 

The Company provides a secure means for end-users to pay for certain services, such as utilities through its 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.

 

3 GOING 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 $17,246,258 as of September 30, 2018 and has not generated sufficient revenue to cover its operating expenditures, 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.

13 NET LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic loss per share is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted loss per share is based on basic shares as determined above plus common stock equivalents. The computation of diluted net loss per share does not assume the issuance of common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect on net loss per share.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, the calculation of diluted income per share is as follows:

 

   Amount   Number of shares   Per share amount 
             
Basic earnings per share               
Net income per share  $272,545    83,554,285   $- 
                
Effect of dilutive securities               
Warrants   -    -      
Convertible debt   310,852    14,208,683      
                
Diluted earnings per share               
Net income per share  $583,397    97,762,968   $- 

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, all convertible debt and warrants, were excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share, as the result would have been anti-dilutive. Dilutive shares which could exist pursuant to the exercise of outstanding stock instruments and which were not included in the calculation because their effect would have been anti-dilutive are as follows:

 

  Nine months ended

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, 2018. 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. 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 have a ten-year renewable exclusive license agreement for the use of technology that can be used to perform services that are similar to services that have been successfully deployed with this technology in several European, Asian, North and South American countries.

 

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 third parties.

 

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 109 million mobile subscribers in Mexico, 85% of which are under prepaid plans, mobile top-up alone, was a $13 billion business in 2017 as reported by the Competitive Intelligence Unit (the “CIU”). We believe that there is opportunity for growth in the Mexican market and we have expanded to service providers beyond the mobile telephone operators to service provides of electricity, transportation, utilities, municipal services and taxes, consumer credit installments, insurance premiums, and many more.

 

Our primary strategy in Mexico to date has been the attraction of service providers as well as the deployment of kiosks through Redpag Electrónicos, our kiosk management subsidiary. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 we generated net revenues of $5,111,017 as compared to $2,889,458 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $2,221,559 or 76.9%. Our primary source of revenue are fees we receive for processing payments made by consumers to service providers. We also generate revenue from non-payment services such as kiosk sales. Qpagos Corporation currently has in excess of 140 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, the national lottery’s Pronosticos and others. As of September 30, 2018, Qpagos Corporation deployed over 239 kiosks and terminals and we service an additional 440 kiosks of independent distributors. 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 September 30, 2018 and 2017, 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 September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017

 

Net revenue

 

Net revenues in our Mexican operations were $1,944,466 and $931,318 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $1,013,148 or 108.8%. Our primary revenue generating operations are based in Mexico and our functional currency is the Mexican Peso. Our revenue in Mexican Pesos increased to MXN36,862,307 from MXN16,597,642 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of MXN20,264,665 or 122.1%. The increase in revenue in MXN terms is primarily due to an increase in the amount of prepaid airtime sold of MXN19,566,097 and an increase in kiosk sales of MXN516,000, no kiosks were sold during the prior period. The average US$ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior comparable period, from $17.8127 to $18.9575 or 6.4%, which results in a lower revenue growth in US $ terms of $124,968.

 

Cost of goods sold

 

Cost of goods sold in our Mexican operations were $1,931,715 and $935,033 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $996,682 or 106.6%. Our cost of sales from our Mexican operations, in Mexican Pesos increased to MXN36,620,575 from MXN16,663,859 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of MXN19,956,716 or 119.8%. The increase in cost of sales in MXN terms is primarily due to the increase in the amount of prepaid airtime sold. 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 goods sold is depreciation related to kiosks that are used in the production of income. Depreciation expense was $7,220 and $9,740, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $2,520. The average US$ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior comparable period, from $17.8127 to $18.9575 or 6.4%, which results in a lower cost of goods sold growth in US $ terms of $124,149.

 

Gross profit (loss)

 

Gross profit (loss) in our Mexican operations was $12,751 and $(3,715) for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $16,466 or 443.2%. The components of gross (loss) profit include the following:

 

 

Gross profit on sales of services was $1,657 and $10,543, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $8,886 or 84%. The decrease in gross profit was due lower margins earned on a higher volume of airtime sold.

  Gross profit on kiosk sales was $19,382 and $0 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $19,382. No kiosks were sold during the prior period.
  Other gross profit includes other cost of sales expense (income) of ($1,068) and $11,264 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $12,332 or 109.4%. The cost of sales expense consists primarily of repairs and maintenance expenditure on kiosks and is dependent on the amount of activity during the quarter, trends in this expense are not easily identifiable as the majority of the repair work in on a need only basis.
  Included in gross profit is depreciation related to those kiosks that are used in the production of income. Depreciation expense was $7,220 and $9,740 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $2,520 or 26%.

General and administrative expenses

 

General and administrative expenses were $437,506 and $682,207 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $244,701 or 35.9%. We incur operating expenditure both in Mexico and in the US, where we maintain a corporate office and incur certain expenditure on consultants, licensing and public reporting activities.

 

  i. The general and administrative expenditure in Mexico decreased to MXN3,196,018 ($168,588) from MXN3,407,886 ($191,221) for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of MXN211,868 ($22,633) or 6.2%. The decrease is primarily due to lower salary costs and a concerted effort to reduce administrative costs.

 

  ii. The general administrative expenses incurred in the US, during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $268,918 and $490,986, respectively, a decrease of $222,068 or 45.2%, primarily due to a decrease in debt raising fees of $149,908, and decrease in legal fees of $54,849.

 

Depreciation and amortization

 

Depreciation and amortization expense was $12,488 and $17,311 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $4,823 or 28%. The decrease is primarily due to a lower depreciation charge in our Mexican operations as the bulk of the depreciation charge is allocated to cost of sales.

 

Other expenses

 

Other expenses were $51,020 and $39,272 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Other expense during the current period includes a loss realized on the conversion of convertible notes into equity at conversion prices ranging from 34% to 55% below current market prices. During the current period, $39,045 of convertible notes were converted to equity.

 

Interest expense, net

 

Interest expense was $517,779 and $792,676 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $274,897 or 35%. The decrease consists primarily of the amortization of debt discount on convertible notes of $388,123 and $721,430 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $333,307 due to the decrease in funding through convertible notes during the past year and interest expense of $52,696 (including penalty interest of $23,689).

 

Derivative liability movements

 

Derivative liability movements were $1,169,205 and $165,196 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The derivative liability arose due to the issuance of convertible securities with variable conversion prices and no floor conversion price. The charge during the current period represents the mark-to-market of the derivative liability outstanding as of September 30, 2018.

 

Foreign currency gain (loss)

 

The foreign currency gain (loss) was $109,382 and ($27,825) for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a movement of $137,207. The decrease is primarily due to the mark to market of foreign currency assets and liabilities due to the strengthening of the Mexican Peso against the US$ during the current period.

 

Net profit (loss)

 

We incurred a net profit (loss) of $272,545 and ($1,397,810), for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $1,670,355 or 119.5%, primarily due to the increase in mark- to-market gains on the derivative liabilities, a decrease in interest expense on convertible promissory notes and other loans, during the current period, offset by an increase in the amortization of debt discount, as discussed above.

Results of Operations for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017

 

Net revenue

 

Net revenues in our Mexican operations were $5,111,017 and $2,889,458 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $2,221,559 or 76.9%.

The increase in revenue in MXN terms is primarily due to an increase in the amount of prepaid airtime sold of MXN43,742,203 offset by a decrease in kiosk sales of MXN1,424,228. The average US$ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior comparable period, from $18.9274 to $19.0473. or 0.6%, which results in a lower revenue growth in US $ terms of $32,382.

Our cost of sales from our Mexican operations, in Mexican Pesos increased to MXN96,149,707 from MXN52,083,211 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of MXN44,066,496 or 84.6%. The increase in cost of sales in MXN terms is primarily due to the increase in the amount of prepaid airtime sold. 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 goods sold is depreciation related to kiosks that are used in the production of income. Depreciation expense was $26,385 and $28,062 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $1,677. The average US $ exchange rate has strengthened against the MXN over the prior period, from $18.9274 to $19.0473 or 0.6%, which results in a lower cost of sales in US $ terms of $31,994.

 

Gross profit

 

Gross profit in our Mexican operations was $61,243 and $82,400 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $21,157 or 25.7%. The components of gross profit include the following:

 

  Gross profit on sales of services was $50,588 and $49,291, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $1,297 or 3%. The increase in gross profit was due to the increased volume in sales at minimal incremental operating costs.
  Gross profit on kiosk sales was $24,371 and $58,818 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $34,447 due to the decrease in the number of kiosks sold over the prior period.
  Other gross profit includes other cost of sales expense of $12,668 and $37,272 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $24,604 or 66.0%. The cost of sales expense consists primarily of repairs and maintenance expenditure on kiosks and is dependent on the amount of activity during the nine month period, trends in this expense are not easily identifiable as the majority of the repair work in on a needs only basis.
  Included in gross profit is depreciation related to those kiosks that are used in the production of income. Depreciation expense was $26,385 and $28,062 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $1,677 or 6.0%.

 

General and administrative expenses

We incur operating expenditure both in Mexico and in the US, where we maintain a corporate office and incur certain expenditure on consultants, licensing and public reporting activities.

 

  i. The general and administrative expenditure in Mexico decreased to MXN9,796,084 ($514,552) from MXN10,899,304 ($585,997) for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of MXN1,103,220 ($71,445) or 10.1%. The decrease is primarily due to lower salary costs and a concerted effort to reduce administrative costs.

 

  ii. The general administrative expenses incurred in the US, during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $1,067,397 and $1,043,676, respectively, an increase of $23,721 or 2.3%, primarily due to increase in capital raising fees of $12,826 due to the issue of several convertible notes during the current period; stock based compensation expense for shares issued to a director of $49,200; offset by savings incurred due to a concerted effort to reduce admin costs.

Depreciation and amortization

 

Depreciation and amortization expense was $37,241 and $55,784 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $18,543 or 33.2%. The decrease is primarily due to a lower depreciation charge in our Mexican operations as the bulk of the depreciation charge is allocated to cost of sales.

 

Other expense

 

Other expense was $3,510,474 and $46,855 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Other expense during the current period includes a loss realized on the conversion of convertible notes into equity at conversion prices ranging from 34% to 55% below current market prices. During the current period, $2,230,980 of convertible notes were converted to equity.

 

Interest expense, net

 

Interest expense was $2,329,283 and $1,264,383 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $1,064,900 or 84.2%. The increase consists primarily of the amortization of debt discount on convertible notes of $2,011,383 and $1,148,430 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $862,953 due to the increase in funding through convertible notes during the past year and interest expense of $185,857 (including penalty interest of $45,827) and $104,550 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $81,307 primarily due to high interest bearing equipment loans and several high interest bearing loans and convertible loans outstanding during the current period.

 

Derivative liability movements

 

Derivative liability movements were $3,441,118 and $283,668 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The derivative liability arose due to the issuance of convertible securities with variable conversion prices and no floor conversion price. The charge during the current period represents the mark-to-market of the derivative liability outstanding as of September 30, 2018, the release of derivative liability during the current period is primarily due to the conversion of $2,230,980 of convertible debt to equity.

 

Foreign currency gain

 

The foreign currency gain was $99,019 and $303,504 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, a decrease of $204,485. The decrease is primarily due to the mark to market of foreign currency assets and liabilities due to the gradual improvement of the Mexican Peso against the US Dollar during the current period.

 

Net loss

 

We incurred a net loss of $3,858,067 and $2,327,124, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $1,530,943 or 65.8%, primarily due to the increase in loss realized on debt conversions, the increase in the amortization of debt discount and interest expense on convertible promissory notes and other loans, during the current period, offset by the decrease in mark- to-market movements on the derivative liabilities as discussed above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared and presented on a basis assuming we will continue as a going concern. We have sustained significant net losses during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $3,858,067 and $2,327,124 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. We incurred an accumulated deficit of $17,246,258 through September 30, 2018 and net cash used in operating activities was $1,680,538 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to net cash used in operating activities of $1,560,734 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. We do not currently believe that our existing cash resources are sufficient to meet our anticipated needs over the next twelve months from the date hereof. 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.

 

Based on our current cash levels and our current rate of cash requirements, we will need to increase revenue and/ or raise additional capital and/or further reduce our expenses from current levels. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

To date, our primary sources of cash have been funds raised primarily from the sale of our debt securities as well as revenue derived from operations.

 

We will need to generate additional revenue from operations and/or obtain additional financing to pursue our business strategy, repay our outstanding note obligations, which, as of September 30, 2018 totaled $2,472,420 in principal amount and accrued interest thereon, 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. To date, we do not have any commitments for additional funding. There can be no assurance that we will be able to complete any such transactions on acceptable terms or otherwise and may have to significantly curtail our operations.

 

At September 30, 2018, we had cash of $40,253 and a negative working capital of $2,744,167, including a derivative liability of $2,031,121, after eliminating the derivative liability our working capital deficit is $713,047. 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 $1,680,538 and $1,560,734 in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, an increase of $119,804 or 7.7%. The increase is primarily due to the operating losses generated over the current period.

 

We had minimal investment in property and equipment of $19,244 and $367 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

 

We funded our operations by utilizing our cash balances and raising an additional $2,101,403 through debt issuances, offset by the repayment of $279,818 of convertible debt during the period.

 

Subsequent to September 30, 2018 we raised an additional net proceeds of $413,250 through convertible debt funding of $446,750.

 

Other than amounts owed under convertible notes, we have minimal commitments which include the office facility lease agreement with a future commitment as of September 30, 2018 of $10,131 for the remainder of 2018 and $40,524 for 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:

 

    Amount  
       
2018     20,100  
2019     20,100  
2020     20,100

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”) who is also its interim 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 who also serves as its interim 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 September 30, 2018 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, who also serves as its interim 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 September 30, 2018 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
