(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)

 

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

SEPTEMBER 30, 2014

 

(UNAUDITED)

  

(1) Nature and Continuance of Operations

 

Description of the Business

 

Takung Art Co., Ltd, formerly known as Cardigant Medical Inc. ("Takung Art" or "Company") was a development stage biotechnology company incorporated in Delaware, focused on the development of novel biologic and peptide based compounds and enhanced methods for local delivery for the treatment of vascular disease including peripheral artery disease and ischemic stroke. It was founded on April 17, 2009 and is incorporated within the state of Delaware.  The Company was engaged in research and development in multiple locations but maintains its corporate office in greater Los Angeles.

 

The Company was in the development stage, as defined in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 915-10. From its inception (April 17, 2009) through September 30, 2014, the Company did not any revenue from its principal planned operations. On March 4, 2013, the Company filed an amendment to its articles of incorporation changing its authorized common stock to 50,000,000.  Also on March 4, 2013, the Company authorized a 2:1 forward stock split. The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements reflect the change in capital and stock split as if they occurred at the Company’s inception.  On September 19, 2014, the Company further amended Article 4 of its Certificate of Incorporation to increase the total number of shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, it is authorized to issue from 50,000,000 to 1,000,000,000.

 

On October 20, 2014, the Company acquired the business of Hong Kong Takung Assets and Equity of Artworks Exchange Co., Ltd.,a limited liability company incorporated on September 17, 2012 under the laws of Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region, China (“Hong Kong Takung”), through the acquisition of all the share capital of Takung Art under the Share Exchange Agreement dated September 23, 2014.

 

On November 5, 2014, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to change its name from “Cardigant Medical Inc.” to “Takung Art Co., Ltd.” The name change was effected pursuant to Section 242 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”). Under the DGCL, the name change did not require stockholder approval.

 

Since the reverse merger closed after September 30, 2014, the Company’s financial statements are prepared solely for the Delaware entity, which do not consolidate the Hong Kong entity.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company's financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

7
 

  

The Company has generated losses from operations to date, does not expect to generate operating revenue for several years, and its viability is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing and the success of its future operations. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2014, and the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements have been condensed or omitted pursuant to rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“the Commission”). The Company believes that the disclosures in the unaudited financial statements are adequate to ensure the information presented is not misleading. However, the unaudited financial statements included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Amended Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2013, filed with the Commission on April 8, 2014.

 

The accompanying financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Disposition of assets

 

On August 27, 2014, the Company entered into a Contribution Agreement with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Cardigant Neurovascular”). Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, the Company assigned all its assets, properties, rights, title and interest used or held for use by their business, (except for certain excluded assets set forth therein) which was the treatment of atherosclerosis and plaque stabilization in both the coronary and peripheral vasculature using systemic and local delivery of large molecule therapeutics and peptide mimetics based on high density lipoprotein targets(“Business”). In consideration for such contribution of capital, Cardigant Neurovascular agreed to assume all the Company’s liabilities raising from the Business prior to the date of the Contribution Agreement and thereafter with regard to certain contributed contacts. The Company granted Cardigant Neurovascular an exclusive option for a period of 6 months to purchase the excluded assets for $1. Cardigant Neurovascular exercised this option October 20, 2014 and the excluded assets were assigned to Cardigant Neurovascular on October 20, 2014.

 

(2) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments and other short-term investments with maturities of three months or less, when purchased, to be cash equivalents. The Company maintains cash balances at one financial institution that is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") up to $250,000. As of September 30, 2014, the Company's cash balances did not exceed the FDIC limits.

 

8
 

  

Research and Development

 

The Company accounts for research and development costs in accordance with ASC Topic 730-10 "Research and Development." Under ASC Topic 730-10, all research and development costs must be charged to expenses as incurred. Third-party research and development costs are expensed when the contracted work has been performed or as milestone results have been achieved. Company sponsored research and development costs related to both present and future products are expensed in the period incurred. For the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company incurred research and development expenses of $3,103 and $41,364, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company incurred research and development expenses of $88,590and $144,652, respectively.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation under ASC Topic 505-50. This standard defines a fair value-based method of accounting for stock-based compensation. In accordance with ASC Topic 505-50, the cost of stock-based compensation is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the period in which the Company expects to receive the benefit, which is generally the vesting period.

 

See Note (6) Stockholder’s Equity (Deficit) for detail stock-based compensation activity.

 

Per Share Amounts

 

The Company reports earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260-10 "Earnings per Share." Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares available.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company continually assesses any new accounting pronouncements to determine their applicability to the Company. Where it is determined that a new accounting pronouncement affects the Company’s financial reporting, the Company undertakes a study to determine the consequence of the change to its financial statements and assures that there are proper controls in place to ascertain that the Company’s financials properly reflect the change.

 

(3) Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company’s financial instruments for 2014 and 2013 consist of account payables, accrued expenses and a short term loan payable. The Company considers the carrying value of such amounts in the financial statements to approximate their fair value due to their respective short maturity dates.

 

(4) Related Party Transactions

 

The Company has received some of its working capital from its founder, Jerett A. Creed. Mr. Creed has also paid Company expenses with personal funds.  These costs have been carried as a shareholder loan accruing interest at the rate of 5% per annum.  The total outstanding balance as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $0, and $14,938, respectively. Accrued interest on the outstanding balance charged to operations for the period ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $33 and $279, respectively.  Accrued interest on the outstanding balance charged to operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $86 and $381, respectively.

 

On August 27, 2014, the Company entered into a Contribution Agreement with Cardigant Neurovascular. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, the Company assigned all its assets, properties, rights, title and interest used or held for use by its business, (except for certain excluded assets set forth therein) which was the treatment of atherosclerosis and plaque stabilization in both the coronary and peripheral vasculature using systemic and local delivery of large molecule therapeutics and peptide mimetics based on high density lipoprotein targets (“Business”). In consideration for such contribution of capital, Cardigant Neurovascular agreed to assume all the Company’s liabilities raising from the Business prior to the date of the Contribution Agreement and thereafter with regard to certain contributed contacts. The Company granted Cardigant Neurovascular an exclusive option for a period of 6 months to purchase the excluded assets for $1. Cardigant Neurovascular exercised this option October 20, 2014 and the excluded assets were assigned to Cardigant Neurovascular on October 20, 2014.

(5) Accrued Officer's Compensation

 

The accrued officer’s compensation balances, net of any salary payments, at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 were $0 and $559,000, respectively. Salary is allocated between research and development and general and administrative based upon time spent.

 

(6) Stockholders’ Equity (Deficit)

 

There is no public market for the Company's common shares. Since its inception, the Company has negotiated the value of its common stock in arm's length transactions with unrelated parties.

 

On August 27, 2014, we entered into a Contribution Agreement with a related party, Cardigant Neurovascular Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Cardigant Neurovascular”) controlled by the same party as our Company. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, we assigned all our assets, properties, rights, title and interest used or held for use by our business, (except for certain excluded assets set forth therein). In consideration for such contribution of capital, Cardigant Neurovascular agreed to assume all our liabilities raising from the Business prior to the date of the Contribution Agreement and thereafter with regard to certain contributed contacts. The net consideration of the deposition of assets, $714,252, was accounted as an additional paid-in capital based on the nature of common control transaction.

 

Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement dated as of July 31, 2014, Yong Li, an individual purchased a total of 22,185,230 restricted shares of common stock of the Company from a group of three former shareholders of the Company. All prior grants of options and warrants had been cancelled as a condition of the Stock Purchase Agreement. Hence, there were no outstanding options or warrants as of September 30, 2014.

During the three months ended June30, 2014, the Company issued 70,000 unregistered shares of its common stock for services valued at $0.53 per share.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our pro forma financial statements and the related notes that will be filed herein.

 

OVERVIEW

 

We were incorporated in Delaware under the name Cardigant Medical Inc. on April 17, 2009. Our initial business plan was to focus on the development of novel biologic and peptide based compounds and enhanced methods for local delivery for the treatment of vascular disease including peripheral artery disease and ischemic stroke.

Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement dated as of July 31, 2014, Yong Li, an individual purchased a total of 22,185,230 restricted shares of common stock of the Company from a group of three former shareholders of the Company. In consideration for the shares, Mr. Li paid the sellers $399,344 in cash which came from his own capital. The sellers were Jerett A. Creed, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, director and formerly a controlling shareholder of the Company, the Creed Family Limited Partnership and Ralph Sinibaldi. The shares represented approximately 95% of the Company’s then issued and outstanding common stock. The sale was consummated on August 28, 2014. As a result of the transaction, there was a change in control of the Company.

 

On August 27, 2014, we entered into a Contribution Agreement with Cardigant Neurovascular. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, we assigned all our assets, properties, rights, title and interest used or held for use by our business, (except for certain excluded assets set forth therein) which was the treatment of atherosclerosis and plaque stabilization in both the coronary and peripheral vasculature using systemic and local delivery of large molecule therapeutics and peptide mimetics based on high density lipoprotein targets (“Business”). In consideration for such contribution of capital, Cardigant Neurovascular agreed to assume all our liabilities raising from the Business prior to the date of the Contribution Agreement and thereafter with regard to certain contributed contacts. We granted Cardigant Neurovascular an exclusive option for a period of 6 months to purchase the excluded assets for $1. Cardigant Neurovascular exercised this option October 20, 2014 and the excluded assets were assigned to Cardigant Neurovascular on October 20, 2014.

 

Also on October 20, 2014, we acquired the business of Hong Kong Takung Assets and Equity of Artworks Exchange Co., Ltd (“Takung”) through the acquisition of all the share capital of Takung under a Share Exchange Agreement dated September 23, 2014 in exchange for 209,976,000 newly-issued restricted shares of our common stock to the shareholders of Takung.

 

Takung is a limited liability company incorporated on September 17, 2012 under the laws of Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region, China. Although Takung was incorporated in late 2012, it did not commence business operations until late 2013.

 

As a result of the transfer of the excluded assets pursuant to the Contribution Agreement and the acquisition of all the issued and outstanding shares of Takung, we are no longer conducting the Business and have now assumed Takung’s business operations as it now our only operating wholly-owned subsidiary.

 

Takungoperates an electronic online platform located at www.takungae.com for artists, art dealers and art investors to offer and trade in valuable artwork.

 

Through Takung, we offer on-line listing and trading services that allow artists/art dealers/owners to access a much bigger art trading market where they can engage with a wide range of investors that they might not encounter without our platform. Our platform also makes investment in high-end and expensive artwork more accessible to ordinary people without substantial financial resources.

 

We generate revenue from our services in connection with the offering and trading of artwork on our system, primarily consisting of listing fees, trading commissions, and management fees.

 

We conduct our business primarily in Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region, People’s Republic of China. Our principal executive offices are located at Flat/RM 03-04, 20/F, Hutchison House, 10 Harcourt Road, Central Hong Kong.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated Financial Statements of the Company for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 and related notes thereto.

 

THREE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 COMPARED TO THREE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013

 

12
 

  

Research and Development Expenses

 

Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $3,103 versus $41,364 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. This represents a 92.5% decrease from the prior year period.

 

The decrease noted is due primarily to reduced use of outside research facilities.  These expenses consisted mainly of allocated salary for our CEO, expense for our CSO and other consultants and laboratory supplies. We expect our R&D expenses to ramp up to approximately $1,000,000 over the next 18 months with most of the expenses back ended. In addition, the substantial decrease was due to the disposition of majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement entered with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc.,a related party on August 27, 2014. As a result, there was basically no research and development activity after the date of the Contribution Agreement .

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $1,769 versus $25,737 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. This represents a 93% decrease from the prior period. The substantial decrease was due to the disposition of a majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement entered with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc.,with oura related party on August 27, 2014. Consequently there were nominal operational activities after the Contribution Agreement.

 

Net Loss

 

We had a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014 of $4,872 versus a net loss of $67,286 for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

 

The substantial decrease in current period was due to the disposition of majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc , a related party on August 27, 2014. Conesequently, there were significantly less research and development activities as well as other operational activities compared to prior period.

 

NINE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 COMPARED TO NINE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

Research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $88,590 versus $144,652 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  This represents a 38.7% decrease from the prior year period.

 

The decrease noted is due primarily to reduced use of outside research facilities.  These expenses consisted mainly of allocated salary for our CEO, expense for our CSO and other consultants and laboratory supplies. We expect our R&D expenses to ramp up to approximately $1,000,000 over the next 18 months with most of the expenses back ended. In addition, the substantial decrease was due to the disposition of majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement entered with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc.,a related party on August 27, 2014. As a result, there was basically no research and development activity after the date of the Contribution Agreement .

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $114,030 versus $98,739 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  This represents a 15.5% increase from the prior period.

 

The increased amountis due primarily to the increased cost associated with SEC compliance related costs, offset by the substantial decrease due to the disposition of a majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement entered with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc., a related party on August 27, 2014. Consequently there were were nominal operational activities after the Contribution Agreement took place.

 

Net Loss

 

We had a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 of $203,092 versus a net loss of $246,875 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

 

This change is due to primarily to the increased cost of our SEC compliance activities offset by the substantial decrease due to the disposition of a majority of our assets, including our major research projects, pursuant to the Contribution Agreement entered with Cardigant Neurovascular Inc., a related party on August 27, 2014. Conesequently, there were significantly less research and development activities as well as other operational activities compared to prior period.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Sources of Liquidity

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, net cash used in operating activities totaled $38,723. Net cash used by investing activities totaled $3,617. Net cash provided by financing activities during the period was $39,216 of which included proceeds of $51,516 received from the sale of 97,200 shares of our common stock through a Reg D offering plus net repayments of $12,300 we paid to our Chief Executive Officer. The resulting change in cash for the period was a decrease of $3,124. The cash balance at the beginning of the period was $3,124. The cash balance at September 30, 2014 was $0.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, net cash used by operating activities totaled $117,996.  Net cash used by investing activities totaled $3,600.  Net cash provided by financing activities during the period was $68,478 of which included proceeds of $85,700 received from the sale of 163,238 shares of our common stock through our private placement offering plus net repayments of $17,222 to our Chief Executive Officer.  The resulting change in cash for the period was a decrease of $53,118.  The cash balance at the beginning of the period was $54,194.  The cash balance at September 30, 2013 was $1,076.

 

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had $649 in total current liabilities, which was represented by $649 in accounts payable.  As of September 30, 2013, the Company had $646,642 in total current liabilities, which was represented by $6,519 in accounts payable, $66,185 in accrued expenses, $559,000 in accrued officer’s compensation and $14,938 due to the Company’s CEO, a stockholder.  

 

The Company had no long-term liabilities at both September 30, 2014 and 2013; therefore the Company’s total liabilities at September 30, 2014 and 2013 amounted to $649 and $646,642, respectively.

 

The Company is not aware of any known trends, events or uncertainties which may affect its future liquidity. We are development stage and do not have a product commercially available for sale. We do not expect to realize any revenue for several years. As such it is imperative that the reader recognize that our primary source of working capital will generally come from equity sales, or the issuance of debt. We do, however, occasionally apply for non-taxable grant funding to support our research and development efforts. We currently do not have grant applications outstanding, and we can make no guarantees that any grant money will be awarded from any future applications. Our business is subject to risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise, including limited capital resources and possible cost overruns.

 

14
 

  

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 are material to stockholders.

 

Future Financings

 

We will continue to rely on equity sales of our common shares in order to continue to fund our business operations. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing stockholders. There is no assurance that we will achieve any additional sales of the equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund our operations and other activities or if we are able, there is no guarantee that existing shareholders will not be substantially diluted.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to make budgetary and financial statement assumptions. A complete summary of these policies is included in the notes to our financial statements. In general, management's estimates are based on historical experience, on information from third party professionals, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Research and development

 

The Company accounts for research and development costs in accordance with the ASC 730-10, “Research and Development.” Under ASC 730-10, all research and development costs must be charged to expense as incurred. Accordingly, internal research and development costs are expensed as incurred. Third-party research and development costs are expensed when the contracted work has been performed or as milestone results have been achieved. Company-sponsored research and development costs related to both present and future products are expensed in the period incurred.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments for 2014 and 2013 consist of accounts payables, accrued expenses and a short term loan payable. The Company considers the carrying value of such amounts in the financial statements to approximate their fair value due their respective short maturity dates.

 

Loss Per Share of Common Stock

 

The Company reports earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260-10 "Earnings per Share." Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares available.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation under ASC Topic 505-50. This standard defines a fair value-based method of accounting for stock-based compensation. The cost of stock-based compensation is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the period in which the Company expects to receive the benefit, which is generally the vesting period.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4.Controls and Procedures.

 

Conclusion Regarding the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act), under the supervision of and with the participation of our management, which presently comprises our Chief Executive Officer, who is also our Chief Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer and sole director. Because of these multiple roles, it is impossible to fully segregate dutiesto ensure that all information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit is: (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rule and forms; and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Manager concluded that (i) there continue to be material weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting, that the weaknesses constitute a “deficiency” which could result in misstatements of the foregoing accounts and disclosures that could result in a material misstatement to the financial statements for the period covered by this report that would not be detected, and (ii) accordingly, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2014.

 

Inherent Limitations

 

Because of its inherent limitations, our disclosure controls and procedures may not prevent or detect misstatements. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

Subject to the foregoing disclosure, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2014, that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
