NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

  

1.     BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

 

The foregoing unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America for complete financial statements. These unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim financial statements furnished herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim period presented.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the financial statements are published, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumption are inherent in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements; accordingly, it is possible that the actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions that could have a material effect on the reported amounts of the Company’s financial position and results of operations.

 

Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2015.

 

About 3PEA International, Inc.

 

3PEA International, Inc. is a vertically integrated provider of innovative prepaid card programs and processing services for corporate, consumer and government applications. Our payment solutions are utilized by our corporate customers as a means to increase customer loyalty, reduce administration costs and streamline operations. Public sector organizations can utilize our solutions to disburse public benefits or for internal payments. We market our prepaid debit card solutions under our PaySign® brand. As we are a payment processor and debit card program manager, we derive our revenue from all stages of the debit card lifecycle. We provide a card processing platform consisting of proprietary systems and innovative software applications based on the unique needs of our programs. We have extended our processing business capabilities through our proprietary PaySign platform. We design and process prepaid programs that run on the platform through which our customers can define the services they wish to offer cardholders. Through the PaySign platform, we provide a variety of services including transaction processing, cardholder enrollment, value loading, cardholder account management, reporting, and customer service.

 

We have developed prepaid card programs for healthcare reimbursement payments, pharmaceutical co-pay assistance, plasma donor remuneration and corporate incentive and rewards, including incentive payment solutions for the automotive industry. We plan to expand our product offering to include payroll cards, general purpose re-loadable cards, travel cards, and expense reimbursement cards. Our cards are offered to end users through our relationships with bank issuers.

 

Our proprietary PaySign® platform was built on modern cross-platform architecture and designed to be highly flexible, scalable and customizable. The platform allows 3PEA to significantly expand its operational capabilities by facilitating our entry into new markets within the payments space through its flexibility and ease of customization. The PaySign platform delivers cost benefits and revenue building opportunities to our partners.

 

We manage all aspects of the debit card lifecycle, from managing the card design and approval processes with partners and associations, to production, packaging, distribution, and personalization. We also oversee inventory and security controls, renewals, lost and stolen card management and replacement. We deploy a fully staffed, in-house customer service department which utilizes bi-lingual customer service agents, Interactive Voice Response, (IVR) and two SMS messaging. 

 

Principles of consolidation – The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

7
 

 

Use of estimates – The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with 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 revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Restricted cash – restricted cash is a cash account controlled by the Company which funds are received related to the card programs from our customers. The Company has recorded a corresponding customer card funding liability.

 

Goodwill and intangible assets - Goodwill is the purchase premium after adjusting for the fair value of net assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized but is reviewed for potential impairment on an annual basis, or when events or circumstances indicate a potential impairment, at the reporting unit level. A reporting unit, as defined under applicable accounting guidance, is a business segment or one level below a business segment. We may in any given period bypass the qualitative assessment and proceed directly to a two-step method to assess and measure impairment of the reporting units goodwill. We first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely-than-not (i.e., a likelihood of more than 50 percent) that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value. This step serves as the basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative impairment test. The first step of the quantitative impairment test involves a comparison of the estimated fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying amount, including goodwill. If the estimated fair value of the reporting unit exceeds its carrying amount, goodwill of the reporting unit is not impaired; however, if the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its estimated fair value, then the second step of the quantitative impairment test must be performed. The second step compares the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill with its carrying amount to measure the amount of impairment loss, if any. The implied fair value of goodwill is determined in the same manner as the amount of goodwill recognized in a business combination. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit’s goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess.

 

For intangible assets, we recognize an impairment loss if the carrying amount of the intangible asset is not recoverable and exceeds fair value. The carrying amount of the intangible asset is considered not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset.

 

Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives.

 

Revenue and expense recognition – We recognize revenue when (1) there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement existing, (2) delivery has occurred, (3) our price to the buyer is fixed or determinable and (4) collectability of the receivables is reasonably assured. We recognize the costs of these revenues at the time revenue is recognized. Any fees paid up front are deferred until such time such services have been considered rendered. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, there were no deferred revenues recorded.

 

We generate the following types of revenues:

 

  · Administration and usage fees, charged to our prepaid card clients when our programs are created, distributed or reloaded. Such revenues are recognized when such services are performed.

 

  · Transaction fees, paid by the applicable networks and passed through by our card issuing banks when our SVCs are used in a purchase or ATM transaction. Such revenues are recognized when such services are performed.

 

  · Maintenance, administration, transaction fees, charged to an SVC and not under any multiple element arrangements. Such revenues are recognized when such services are performed.

 

  · Program maintenance management fees charged to our clients. Such revenues are not under any multiple element arrangements and are recognized when such services are performed.

 

  · Software development and consulting services to our clients. Such revenues are recognized in accordance with ASC 985-605.

 

The Company records all revenues on gross basis in accordance with ASC 605-45 since it is the primary obligor and establishes the price in the revenue arrangement. The Company is currently under no obligation for refunding any fees or has any obligations for disputed claim settlements.

Earnings (loss) per share - Basic earnings (loss) per share exclude any dilutive effects of options, warrants and convertible securities. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed using the weighted-average number of outstanding common stocks during the applicable period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted-average number of common and common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period. Common stock equivalent shares are excluded from the computation if their effect is antidilutive.

We provide a card processing platform consisting of proprietary systems and innovative software applications based on the unique needs of our programs. We have extended our processing business capabilities through our proprietary PaySign platform. We design and process prepaid programs that run on the platform through which our customers can define the services they wish to offer cardholders. Through the PaySign platform, we provide a variety of services including transaction processing, cardholder enrollment, value loading, cardholder account management, reporting, and customer service.

The Company divides prepaid cards into two general categories: corporate and consumer reloadable, and non-reloadable cards.

 

Reloadable Cards: These types of cards are generally incentive, payroll or considered general purpose reloadable (“GPR”) cards. Payroll cards are issued to an employee by an employer to receive the direct deposit of their payroll. GPR cards can also be issued to a consumer at a retail location or mailed to a consumer after completing an on-line application. GPR cards can be reloaded multiple times with a consumer’s payroll, government benefit, a federal or state tax refund or through cash reload networks located at retail locations. Reloadable cards are generally open loop cards as described below.

 

Non-Reloadable Cards: These are generally one-time use cards that are only active until the funds initially loaded to the card are spent. These types of cards are gift or incentive cards. These cards may be open loop or closed loop. Normally these types of cards are used for purchase of goods or services at retail locations and cannot be used to receive cash.

 

These prepaid cards may be open loop, closed loop or semi-closed loop. Open loop cards can be used to receive cash at ATM locations or purchase goods or services by PIN or signature at retail locations. These cards can be used virtually anywhere that the network brand (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, etc.)is accepted. Closed loop cards can only be used at a specific merchant. Semi-closed loop cards can be used at several merchants such as a shopping mall.

 

The prepaid card market is one of the fastest growing segments of the payments industry in the U.S. This market has experienced significant growth in recent years due to consumers and merchants embracing improved technology, greater convenience, more product choices and greater flexibility. Prepaid cards have also proven to be an attractive alternative to traditional bank accounts for certain segments of the population, particularly those without, or who could not qualify for, a checking or savings account.

 

We have developed prepaid card programs for healthcare reimbursement payments, pharmaceutical assistance, plasma donor remuneration, corporate and incentive rewards and expense reimbursement cards. We plan to expand our product offering to include payroll cards, general purpose re-loadable cards and travel cards. Our cards are offered to end users through our relationships with bank issuers.

 

Our products and services are aimed at capitalizing on the growing demand for stored value and reloadable ATM/prepaid card financial products in a variety of market niches. Our proprietary platform is scalable and customizable, delivering cost benefits and revenue building opportunities to partners. We manage all aspects of the debit card lifecycle, from managing the card design and approval processes with banking partners and card associations, to production, packaging, distribution, and personalization. We also oversee inventory and security controls, renewals, lost and stolen card management and replacement.

 

Currently, we are focusing our marketing efforts on the healthcare reimbursement market, pharmaceutical marketing or drug sampling market, source plasma donation payments and the corporate incentive card market targeting automotive and other market niches.

 

As part of our platform expansion development process, we evaluate current and emerging technologies for applicability to our existing and future software platform. To this end, we engage with various hardware and software vendors in evaluation of various infrastructure components. Where appropriate, we use third-party technology components in the development of our software applications and service offerings. Third-party software may be used for highly specialized business functions, which we may not be able to develop internally within time and budget constraints. Our principal target markets for processing services include prepaid card issuers, retail and private-label issuers, small third-party processors, and small and mid-size financial institutions in the United States and in emerging international markets.

 

The company has begun to devote more extensive resources to sales and marketing activities as we have added essential personnel to our marketing and sales department in late 2013. We sell our products directly to customers in the U.S. but may work with a small number of resellers and third parties in international markets to identify, sell and support targeted opportunities. We have also identified large scale opportunities in the European Union and are aggressively pursuing those opportunities.

 

In order to expand into new markets, we will need to invest additional funds in technology improvements, sales and marketing expenses, and regulatory compliance costs. We are considering raising capital to enable us to diversify into new market verticals. If we do not raise new capital, we believe that we will still be able to expand into new markets using internally generated funds, but our expansion will not be as rapid.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $1,598,409, a decrease of $809,266 compared to the same period in the prior year, when revenues were $2,407,675. The decrease in revenue is primarily due to the non-occurrence of revenues associated with specific product life cycle events in the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Revenue from plasma donation card usage was impacted by seasonality normally seen in the first quarter, However, we expect our revenues will trend upward during the remaining part of 2015 as we launched several long term corporate incentive prepaid debit card programs for new customers and continued growth in our donor payments for source plasma in the latter part of 2015.

 

Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $1,045,257, a decrease of $884,010 compared to the same period in the prior year, when cost of revenues were $1,929,267. Cost of revenues constituted approximately 65% and 80% of total revenues in 2015 and 2014, respectively. Cost of revenues is comprised of transaction processing fees, data connectivity and data center expenses, network fees, card production costs, customer service and program management expenses, application integration setup and sales expense.

 

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $553,152, an increase of $74,744 compared to the same period in the prior year, when gross profit was $478,408. Our overall gross profit percentage approximated 35% and 20% during the first quarters of 2015 and 2014 which is consistent with our overall expectations. We believe our profit margins will continue to improve in the future as we continue to pursue new corporate incentive reward programs utilizing our PaySign Platform.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $907,870, an increase of $398,992 compared to the same period in the prior year, when selling, general and administrative expenses were $508,878.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to expenses related to our planned expansion in the European Union. The remaining increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was due to staffing and technological expense which was within expectations.  

 

In the three months ended March 31, 2015, we recorded operating loss of $426,478, as compared to operating loss of $64,417 in the same period in the prior year, an increase in operating loss of $362,061.

 

Other income (expense) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $(5,448), a decrease in net other income (expense) of $10,367 compared to the same period in the prior year when other income (expense) was $(15,815) which is within our overall expectations.   

 

Our net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $441,795, an increase of $361,720 compared to the same period in the prior year, when we recorded net loss of $80,075. The increase in our net loss is attributable to the aforementioned factors.

Comparison of three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, we financed our operations primarily through internally generated funds.

 

Operating activities used $(495,079) of cash in 2015, as compared to $939,217 of cash provided in the same period in the prior year. Major non-cash items that affected our cash flow from operations in 2015 were non-cash charges of $71,760 for depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation of $45,164. Our operating assets and liabilities used $(168,740) of cash, most of which resulted from a decrease in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $(221,243). Major non-cash items that affected our cash flow from operations in 2014 were non-cash charges of $33,947 for depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation of $39,706.  Our operating assets and liabilities in 2014 provided $945,796 of cash, most of which resulted from an increase in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $702,671.

 

Investing activities used $(389,868) of cash in 2015, as compared to $(132,818) of cash used in 2014, all of which primarily related to the enhancement of the processing platform used in our business.

 

Financing activities used $(821,356) of cash in 2015 as compared to $46,534 of cash provided in 2014. In 2015, cash used in financing activities consisted of payments on notes payables totaling $821,356.

 

Sources of Financing

 

We believe that our available cash on hand at March 31, 2015 of $2,180,665 and revenues anticipated for the remainder of 2015 will be sufficient to sustain our operations for the next twelve months.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
