INNOVATIVE FOOD HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2014
(Unaudited)
 
1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Innovative Food Holdings, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiaries, some of which are non-operating, Artisan Specialty Foods, Inc. (“Artisan”), Food Innovations, Inc. (“FII”), Food New Media Group, Inc. (“FNM”), Organic Food Brokers (“OFB”), Gourmet Foodservice Group, Inc. (“GFG”),  Gourmet Foodservice Warehouse, Inc., Gourmeting Inc., The Fresh Diet, Inc., (“The Fresh Diet”), The Haley Group, Inc.,  (“Haley”), and 4 The Gourmet, Inc. (d/b/a For The Gourmet, Inc.) (“Gourmet” and collectively with IVFH and the other subsidiaries, the “Company, or “IVFH”), have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation of these entities.

Consolidation of Variable Interest Entity

The Company consolidates the financial statements of a variable interest entity (“VIE”) in which it is the primary beneficiary. In determining whether the Company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity, consideration is given to a number of factors, including the ability to direct the activities that most significantly affect the entity’s economic success as well as the Company’s exposure to absorb the losses and obligations of such entities. Late Night Express Courier Service, Inc., an independent company providing delivery services to The Fresh Diet customers, was determined to be a VIE that was required to be consolidated under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810, Consolidation, as set forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and accordingly, was included in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the period ended September 30, 2014. All material inter-company transactions and balances of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries and VIE have been eliminated in consolidation.

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles pursuant to Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission and with the instructions to Form 10-Q.  Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in audited consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted. Accordingly, these interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and related notes as contained in Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. In the opinion of management, the interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, necessary for fair presentation of the interim periods presented. The results of the operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full year. The results of The Fresh Diet have been included since its acquisition on August 15, 2014.
 
2. NATURE OF ACTIVITIES AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Business Activity
 
FII, Artisan, GFG are in the business of providing premium foodservice establishments, including white tablecloth restaurants, with the freshest origin-specific perishables and specialty food products direct from its warehouses and from a network of vendors, to the end users (restaurants, hotels, country clubs, national chain accounts, casinos, and catering houses) across the United States within 24 - 72 hours. For The Gourmet Inc., through its website www.forthegourmet.com, and through additional sales channels, provides the highest quality gourmet food products to the direct to consumer market.  FNM currently holds the Company’s intellectual property rights including all rights related to its Artistre® private label brand. Haley is a food manufacturer representative that manages food manufacturing foodservice relationships at a food distributor’s corporate level. OFB works closely with emerging food brands to develop and execute sales, marketing and distribution plans via its nationwide network of retail-related food broker relationships while providing emerging food brands distribution and shelf placement access in all of the major metro markets in the food retail industry.

The Fresh Diet is in the business of providing freshly prepared gourmet specialty meals, using the finest specialty, artisanal, direct from source ingredients, delivered daily, directly to consumers using The Fresh Diet® platform.  The Fresh Diet’s platform includes a company managed and owned preparation and logistics infrastructure, including a comprehensive company owned network of same day and next day last mile food delivery capabilities.
 

We have historically sold the majority of our products (72% and 76% of total sales in the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively) through a distributor relationship between FII and Next Day Gourmet, L.P., a subsidiary of U.S. Foods (“USF”), a $20 billion broad line distributor.  On May 18, 2012, the Company executed a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Artisan Acquisition Agreement”) to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Artisan Specialty Foods, Inc., an Illinois corporation (“ASF”).  ASF  was previously a supplier to the Company. Artisan is a supplier of over 1,500 niche gourmet products to over 500 customers in the Greater Chicago area.  On November 2, 2012, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Haley, entered into an asset purchase agreement (the “Haley Acquisition”) with The Haley Group, LLC whereby the Company acquired all existing contracts between The Haley Group, LLC and its customers.  Pursuant to a purchase agreement (the “Organic Food Brokers Purchase Agreement”), effective June 30, 2014, the Company purchased 100% of the membership interest of Organic Food Brokers, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“OFB”).  Also, pursuant to a purchase agreement (the “The Fresh Diet Purchase Agreement”), effective August 15, 2014, the Company purchased 100% of the common stock of The Fresh Diet, Inc.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates include, for example, certain assumptions related to doubtful accounts receivable, stock-based services, valuation of financial instruments, contingent liabilities and income taxes. On an on-going basis, we evaluate these estimates, including those related to revenue recognition and concentration of credit risk. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe our estimates have not been materially inaccurate in past years, and our assumptions are not likely to change in the foreseeable future.

Reclassifications and Corrections

Certain reclassifications have been made to conform prior period data to the current presentation. In addition, the Company identified an error and revised its financial statements for the three and six months ended September 30, 2013 related to the elimination of certain intercompany revenues. Management concluded that the errors had no material impact on any of the Company’s previously issued financial statements, are immaterial to the Company’s results for the second quarter of 2013 and full year 2013 results, and had no material effect on the trend of the Company’s financial results. As a result of the immaterial errors discussed above, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect the following adjustments: a reduction in cost of goods sold and an offsetting reduction in revenue of $164,808 and $731,013 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.  The effect of the reclassifications and immaterial errors had no effect on reported net income.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue upon product delivery. All of our products are shipped either same day, overnight or through longer shipping terms to the customer and the customer takes title to product and assumes risk and ownership of the product when it is delivered. Shipping charges to customers and sales taxes collectible from customers, if any, are included in revenues.

For revenue from product sales, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board “FASB” Accounting Standards Codification “ASC” 605-15-05. ASC 605-15-05 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred;  (3) the selling   price is fixed and   determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.  Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management's judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts.  Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded.  The Company defers any revenue for which the product has not been delivered or is subject to refund until such time that the Company and the customer jointly determine that the product has been delivered or no refund will be required.

Revenue from the sale of meals is recognized when the earnings process is complete, which is upon the delivery of the product to the Company’s customers. Meal programs are sold weekly, bi-weekly and monthly. Meal programs are non-returnable and non-refundable if not cancelled within 3 days of initial delivery. Refunds of cancelled meal plans are recorded at the time of cancellation.

Cost of Goods Sold
 
Costs recorded in Cost of Goods Sold in the condensed consolidated statement of operations include the costs of raw materials, packaging, product conversion, and delivery.

Advertising Costs

The Company’s policy is to report advertising costs as expenses in the periods in which the costs are incurred. The total amounts charged to advertising expense were approximately $67,660 and $82,711, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.
 
Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share
 
Basic net earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period, while fully-diluted net earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive securities assumed to be outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. Potentially dilutive securities consist of options and warrants to purchase common stock, and convertible debt. Basic and diluted net loss per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

The Company uses the treasury stock method to calculate the impact of outstanding stock options and warrants. Stock options and warrants for which the exercise price exceeds the average market price over the period have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per common share and, accordingly, are excluded from the calculation. 
 
Anti-dilutive shares at September 30, 2014:

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company excluded from the calculation of fully-diluted earnings per share because the effect would have been anti-dilutive: warrants to purchase 3,040,124 shares of common stock at exercise prices from $0.01 to $0.575 per share; options to purchase 1,576,389 shares of common stock at exercise prices from $0.35 to $0.57 per share; and conversion options to purchase 5,772,206 shares of common stock at $0.25 per share.  The Company also excluded 210,520 shares committed to be issued because the effect would have been anti-dilutive.
 
Anti-dilutive shares at September 30, 2013:

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company excluded from the calculation of fully-diluted earnings per share warrants to purchase 6,964,000 shares of common stock at exercise prices of $0.01 to $0.575 per share, and options to purchase 2,480,000 shares of common stock issuable at exercise prices of $0.35 to $1.60 per share. The Company also excluded 10,269,844 shares issuable upon the conversion of a note payable and accrued interest an exercise price of $0.25 per share.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company excluded from the calculation of fully-diluted earnings per share warrants to purchase 6,964,000 shares of common stock at exercise prices of $0.01 to $0.575 per share, and options to purchase 2,480,000 shares of common stock issuable at exercise prices of $0.35 to $1.60 per share.

To complete this review, management followed the steps in ASC 350-20-35-3C to evaluate the fair value of goodwill and considered all known events and circumstances that might trigger an impairment of goodwill. The analysis completed in 2013 and 2012 determined that there was no impairment to goodwill assets.

Litigation

From time to time, the Company may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.
 
On June 1, 2012, nine persons, on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated, filed a Collective and Collective and Class Action Complaint against The Fresh Diet Inc. and certain individuals and on or about October 26, 2012, Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint adding additional defendants seeking to recover unpaid wages on behalf of drivers for The Fresh Diet and/or Late Night Express who delivered meals in New York Tristate area.  In an Opinion dated September 29, 2014 the Plaintiff's motion for summary Judgment was denied as was our cross motion for Summary Judgment; the Plaintiff's motion to certify a class of 109 drivers as an increase from the 29 in the case was denied; and our motion to decertify the case from 29 down to the 8 named defendants was granted.  The Company has recorded a contingent liability of $250,000 representing the estimated potential amounts payable pursuant to this litigation, but believes the actual amount may be much less.
 
On September 3, 2014 the registrant’s subsidiary was served a complaint by Monolith Ventures, Ltd., in the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida (the “Complaint”).  The plaintiff listed in the Complaint, which was brought by a shareholder of less than 24% of the outstanding shares of The Fresh Diet, Inc., seeks to attack the registrant’s recently concluded acquisition of The Fresh Diet, Inc., which was approved by a majority of the Fresh Diet shareholders. In the Complaint, the plaintiff asks the court to set aside the transaction. The registrant believes the Complaint is without merit, contains numerous factual errors, and the registrant is confident that it will prevail.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto, as well as all other related notes, and financial and operational references, appearing elsewhere in this document.
 
Certain information contained in this discussion and elsewhere in this report may include "forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and is subject to the safe harbor created by that act. The safe harbor created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act will not apply to certain  "forward looking statements” because we issued "penny stock" (as defined in Section 3(a)(51) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 3a51-1 under the Exchange Act) during the three year period preceding the date(s) on which those forward looking statements were first made, except to the extent otherwise specifically provided by rule, regulation or order of the Securities and Exchange Commission. We caution readers that certain important factors may affect our actual results and could cause such results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements which may be deemed to have been made in this Report or which are otherwise made by or on our behalf.  For this purpose, any statements contained in this report that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as "may",  "will", "expect", "believe",  "explore",  "consider",  "anticipate",  "intend", "could", "estimate",  "plan", "propose" or "continue" or the negative variations of those words or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Factors that may affect our results include, but are not limited to, the risks and uncertainties associated with:
 
 Our ability to raise capital necessary to sustain our anticipated operations and implement our business plan,
   
 Our ability to implement our business plan,

Critical Accounting Policy and Estimates

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements

The preparation of the financial statements included in this report requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates include certain assumptions related to doubtful accounts receivable, stock-based services, valuation of financial instruments, and income taxes. On an on-going basis, we evaluate these estimates, including those related to revenue recognition and concentration of credit risk. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe our estimates have not been materially inaccurate in past years, and our assumptions are not likely to change in the foreseeable future.

Background
 
We were initially formed in June 1979 as Alpha Solarco Inc., a Colorado corporation. From June 1979 through February 2003, we were either inactive or involved in discontinued business ventures. In February 2003 we changed our name to Fiber Application Systems Technology, Ltd.
 
In January 2004, we changed our state of incorporation by merging into Innovative Food Holdings, Inc. (“IVFH”), a Florida shell corporation. As a result of the merger we changed our name to that of Innovative Food Holdings, Inc. In February 2004 we also acquired Food Innovations, Inc. (“FII”) and through FII and our other subsidiaries we are in the business of national food distribution and sales using third-party shippers. 
 
On May 18, 2012, the Company executed a Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Artisan Specialty Foods, Inc., an Illinois corporation (“Artisan”), from its owner, Mr. David Vohaska.  The purchase price was $1.2 million, with up to another $300,000 (with a fair value of $131,000) payable in the event certain financial milestones are met by April 30, 2014.  The purchase price was primarily financed via a loan from Alpha Capital in the principal amount of $1,200,000.  Prior to the acquisition, Artisan was a vendor and had sold products to the Company.  Pursuant to a purchase agreement, effective June 30, 2014, the Company purchased 100% of the membership interest of Organic Food Brokers, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“OFB”).
 

On August 15, 2014, pursuant to a merger agreement (the “Fresh Diet Merger Agreement”), the Company acquired The Fresh Diet, Inc. (“FD”) through a reverse triangular merger as the registrant created a subsidiary corporation (FD Acquisition Corp) that merged with and into FD with FD being the surviving corporation and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the registrant.  FD is the nationwide leader in freshly prepared gourmet specialty meals, using the finest specialty, artisanal, direct from source ingredients, delivered daily, directly to consumers using The Fresh Diet® platform.  The Fresh Diet’s platform includes a company managed and owned preparation and logistics infrastructure, including a comprehensive company owned network of same day and next day last mile food delivery capabilities.  The purchase price consisted of 10,000,000 shares of the registrant’s common stock valued at $14,000,000.  The majority of FD’s current liabilities consist of approximately $3.8 million of deferred revenues and approximately $2.1 million in short term commercial loans and there are additional ordinary course of business expenses such as trade payables, payroll and sales taxes which varies from month to month. In addition, it has some long term obligations the bulk of which consist of interest free loans from FD’s shareholders in the amount of approximately $2.2 million which are not due for three years.  Prior to the merger FD had purchased an immaterial amount of product from the registrant.  It is anticipated that FD will operate as an independent subsidiary subject to oversight of its board of directors and the registrant’s President and CEO and that two of FD’s executive officers will be appointed to the registrant’s board of directors.

Transactions With a Major Customer
 
Transactions with a major customer and related economic dependence information is set forth immediately below and above in Note 2 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and also in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (1) following our discussion of Liquidity and Capital Resources, (2) Concentrations of Credit Risk in Note 2 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, and (3) as the fourth item under Risk Factors.

Relationship with U.S. Foods

In February 2010, one of our subsidiaries, Food Innovations, signed a new contract with U.S. Foods (“USF”).  This  contract with USF expired on December 31, 2012.  However, the contract provides that it automatically renews for an additional 12-month term unless either party notifies the other in writing 30 days prior to the end date of its intent not to renew. Inasmuch as neither party gave the requisite notice, the agreement was automatically extended through December 31, 2013 and again through December 31, 2014. Discussions are currently ongoing with respect to entering into a new multi-year agreement.   We believe that although a significant portion of our sales occurs through the USF sales force, the success of the program is less contingent on a contract then on the actual performance and quality of our products. Other than our business arrangements with USF, we are not affiliated with either USF or its subsidiary, Next Day Gourmet, L.P. (“Next Day Gourmet”).  During the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, sales to USF accounted for 57% and 72% of total sales, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, sales to USF accounted for 68% and 70% of total sales, respectively.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following is a discussion of our financial condition and results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013.

This discussion may contain forward looking-statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our future results could differ materially from the forward looking-statements discussed in this report. This discussion should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, the notes thereto and other financial information included elsewhere in the report.
 
Three Months Ended September 30, 2014 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2013

Revenue

Revenue increased by $2,917,651, or approximately 50.0%, to $8,757,934  for the three months ended September 30, 2014 from $5,840,283 in the prior year.  $2,182,219, or 74.8% of the increase was attributable to acquisitions the Company made during the period.  The balance of the increase, or $735,432, was due to year-over-year organic sales growth.
 
We continue to assess the potential of new revenue sources from the manufacture and sale of proprietary food products and additional sales channel opportunities and will implement that strategy if, based on our analysis, we deem it beneficial to us.

Any changes in the food distribution operating landscape that materially hinders our current ability and/or cost to deliver our products to our customers could potentially cause a material impact on our net revenue and gross margin and, therefore, our profitability and cash flows could be adversely affected.
 
 
Currently, a small portion of our revenues comes from imported products or international sales. Our current sales from such segments may be hampered and negatively impacted by any economic tariffs that may be imposed in the United States or in foreign countries.

See "Transactions with Major Customers" and the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") mandated FR-60 disclosures following the "Liquidity and Capital Resources" section for a further discussion of the significant customer concentrations, loss of significant customer, critical accounting policies and estimates, and other factors that could affect future results.
  
Cost of goods sold
 
Our cost of goods sold for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $6,577,167,  an increase of $2,415,402  or approximately 58.0% compared to cost of goods sold of $4,161,765 for the three months ended September 30, 2014. $1,769,379 or 73.2%  of the increase was attributable to acquisitions the Company made during the period.  Cost of goods sold is primarily made up of the following expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014: cost of goods of specialty, meat, game, cheese poultry, prepared meals and other sales categories in the amount of $3,551,746; and shipping, packaging, and delivery expenses in the amount of $3,025,421.  Total gross margin was approximately 24.9% of sales in the third quarter of 2014, compared to approximately 28.7% of sales in the third quarter of 2013.
   
In 2014, we continued to price our products in order to gain market share and increase the number of our end users. We were successful in both increasing sales and increasing market share.  We currently expect, if market conditions and our product revenue mix remain constant, that our cost of goods sold will likely remain stable.

Interest expense

Interest expense, net of interest income, decreased by $587,067 or approximately 80.0%  to $146,487 during the three months ended September 30, 2014, compared to $733,554 during the three months ended September 30, 2013.  Approximately 21.0% or $30,722 of the interest expense was accrued or paid interest on the company’s notes payable; approximately 79.0% or $115,765 of the interest expense was  non-cash interest expense associated with the amortization of the discounts on the Company’s notes payable.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014 Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013

Revenue

Revenue increased by $4,360,169  or approximately 26.6%  to $20,760,427 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from $16,400,258 in the prior year.  $2,182,219 or 50.5% of the increase was attributable to acquisitions the Company made during the period.  The balance of the increase, or $2,177,950, was due to year-over-year organic sales growth.
 
We continue to assess the potential of new revenue sources from the production and sale of proprietary food products, additional product lines, additional direct to consumer markets  and additional sales channel opportunities and will implement that strategy if, based on our analysis, we deem it beneficial to us.

Any changes in the food distribution and food production operating landscape that materially hinders our current ability and/or cost to deliver our products to our customers could potentially cause a material impact on our net revenue and gross margin and, therefore, our profitability and cash flows could be adversely affected.
 
Currently, a small portion of our revenues comes from imported products or international sales. Our current sales from such segments may be hampered and negatively impacted by any economic tariffs that may be imposed in the United States or in foreign countries.

In 2014, we continued to price our products in order to gain market share and increase the number of our end users. We were successful in both increasing sales and increasing market share.  We currently expect, if market conditions and our product revenue mix remain constant, that our cost of goods sold will likely remain stable.

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had current assets of $7,289,572 consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $4,079,213, accounts receivable of $1,165,410,  inventory of $1,231,299, other current assets of $351,024, and amounts due from related parties of $462,626.   Also at September 30, 2014, the Company had current liabilities of $10,972,978, consisting of accounts payable of $2,845,962; accrued liabilities of $1,650,762 (of which $178,150 is payable to related parties); deferred revenue of $3,961,634, revolving credit facilities of $897,222; accrued interest of $670,659 (of which $53,621 is payable to related parties); current portion of notes payable, net of discounts, of $209,339,  contingent liabilities of $448,750; and current portion of notes payable to related parties, of $110,500.
 
During the nine months ended September  30, 2014, the Company generated cash from operating activities in the amount of $1,058,202.  This consisted of the Company’s net income  of $1,786, offset by non-cash charges for the amortization of discount on notes payable of $608,541; depreciation and amortization of $503,650; non-cash compensation in the amount of $160,855; and increase in allowance for doubtful accounts of $25,316.

The Company had cash generated by financing activities of $825,107 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, which consisted of $1,835,000 in cash received from the sale of common stock, offset by $949,893 principal payments on notes payable and capital leases and  $60,000 for the purchase of treasury stock.

The Company had net working capital of ($3,683,406) as of September 30, 2014. We have generated positive cash flow from operations during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. The Company intends to continue to focus on increasing market share and cash flow from operations by focusing its sales activities on specific market segments and new product lines.  Currently, we do not have any material long-term obligations other than those described in Note 12 to the financial statements included in this report. As we seek to increase our sales of new items and enter new markets, acquire new businesses as well as identify new and other consumer and food service oriented products and services, we may use existing cash reserves, long-term financing, or other means to finance such diversification. 
 
If the Company’s cash flow from operations is insufficient, the Company may require additional financing in order to execute its operating plan and continue its growth.   The Company cannot predict whether this additional financing will be in the form of equity or debt, or be in another form. The Company may not be able to obtain the necessary additional capital on a timely basis, on acceptable terms, or at all. The Company expects that any sale of additional equity securities or convertible debt will result in additional dilution to our stockholders.

In any of these events, the Company may be unable to implement its current plans for expansion, repay its debt obligations as they become due or respond to competitive pressures, any of which circumstances would have a material adverse effect on its business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues, or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.
 
Inflation
 
In the opinion of management, inflation has not had a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of its operations.
 
RISK FACTORS

The Company’s business and success is subject to numerous risk factors as detailed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 which is available at no cost at www.sec.gov.
