Franchise Holdings International, Inc.

Notes to the Financial Statements

For the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014

 

1. Nature of Operations

 

Franchise Holdings International, Inc. (the "Company") was incorporated in the State of Nevada on April 2, 2003. FSGI Corporation was incorporated in the State of Florida on May 15, 1997, and in a reorganization on December 21, 1998 with another corporation named The Martial Arts Network On Line, Inc. (originally incorporated in Florida on May 23, 1996) changed its name to TMAN Global.Com, Inc. Franchise Holdings International, Inc. and TMAN Global.Com, Inc. consummated a merger on April 30, 2003 whereby Franchise Holdings International, Inc. exchanged 1 common share for all the 90,861 outstanding common shares of TMAN Global.Com, Inc. The purpose of the transaction was a change of domicile. Pursuant to the merger terms, Franchise Holdings International, Inc. was the surviving corporation and TMAN Global.Com, Inc. ceased to exist.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company completed a reverse acquisition transaction (the "Reverse Acquisition") with TruXmart Ltd. ("TruXmart") a company located at 1895 Clements Road, Unit 155, Pickering, Ontario, Canada. TruXmart designs and distributes truck tonneau covers in Canada and the United States. Prior to the completion of the Reverse Acquisition, TruXmart owned 2,300,000 shares of the Company, representing an 80.96% ownership stake in the Company. Pursuant to the Reverse Acquisition, the sole shareholder of TruXmart acquired the 2,300,000 shares from TruXmart and an additional 37,700,000 shares of the Company from the Company in exchange for all 4,791 Class A common shares of TruXmart. Following completion of the Reverse Acquisition, the former sole shareholder of TruXmart will own 40,000,000 of the 40,540,864 issued and outstanding shares of the Company, representing a 98.67% ownership stake in the Company. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company issued the 37,700,000 shares of its common stock.

 

During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company incurred transaction costs of $299,839 which were included in the net loss and comprehensive loss for the year. As at December 31, 2014, $215,000 of the expenses had been paid in cash and the remaining $84,839 were included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities as they were to be paid subsequent to December 31, 2014. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company paid $53,150 of the amounts included in accounts payable and accrued liabilites as at December 31, 2014. As at June 30, 2015, $31,689 of the transaction costs were included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

 

The transaction has been accounted for as a reverse acquisition, as owners and management of TruXmart have voting and operating control of the Company following completion of the Reverse Acquisition

 

The accompanying financial statements include the activities of Franchise Holdings International, Inc., its predecessor corporations and TruXmart.

Notes to the Financial Statements

For the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014

 

2. Basis of Presentation and Going Concern

 

a) Statement of Compliance

 

The Company's interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") as issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB"). The Company's fiscal year end is December 31.

 

The interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared without audit in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Form 10 Q. They do not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. Therefore, these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2014.

 

The interim consolidated financial statements included herein are unaudited; however, they contain all normal recurring accruals and adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the Company’s consolidated financial position as of June 30, 2015, the results of its operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and its consolidated cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for future quarters or the full year ending December 31, 2015.

 

b) Basis of Measurement

 

The Company's interim financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis.

 

c) Functional and Presentation Currency

 

These interim financial statements are presented in United States Dollars. The functional currency of the Company is the Canadian Dollar.

 

d) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of interim financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 interim financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Notes to the Financial Statements

For the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014

 

2. Basis of Presentation and Going Concern (continued)

 

e) Going Concern

 

These interim unaudited financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the six month period ended June 30, 2015, the Company incurred a net loss of $847,860 (2014 $22,006), and as of that date, the Company’s deficit was $1,412,038 (2014 $106,843). While the Company has demonstrated the ability to generate revenue, there are no assurances that it will be able to achieve level of revenues adequate to generate sufficient cash flow from operations or obtain additional financing through private placements, public offerings and/or bank financing necessary to support our working capital requirements. To the extent that funds generated from any private placements, public offerings and/or bank financing are insufficient, we will have to raise additional working capital. No assurance can be given that additional financing will be available, or if available, will be on acceptable terms. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. If adequate working capital is not available we may be forced to discontinue operations, which would cause investors to lose their entire investment.

 

3. Significant Accounting Policies

 

The accounting polices used in the preparation of these interim financial statements are consistent with those of the Company's audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014.

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes included in this report.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenue

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, revenue generated from the entire line of TruXmart products was $270,272, as compared to $330,164 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The year over year decrease of approximately 18% was mainly attributable to the preparation of releasing new product lines and limited stock in the warehouse. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, revenue generated from the entire line of TruXmart products was $192,096, as compared to $164,908 for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The year over year increase of approximately 16% was mainly attributable to the release of a new product line during the quarter and having sufficient levels of inventory to fulfill orders.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, revenue generated in Canada was $119,823 compared to $104,161 for the same period in 2014, an increase of 15%. This increase in sales is attributable to the introduction of the new products into Canada as a test market before introducing into the USA. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, revenue generated in Canada was $90,618 compared to $60,316 for the same period in 2014, an increase of 50%. The relative weakening of the Canadian Dollar compared to the United States Dollar during the first six months of fiscal 2015 continued to have a negative effect on reported revenues as a result of translating the sales denominated in Canadian Dollars to United States Dollars for financial statement reporting purposes. Canadian Dollar Sales increased to CDN$148,017 from CDN$114,213, an increase of 30% during the six months ended June 30, 2015. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, Canadian Dollar sales increased to CDN$112,440 from CDN$65,874 during the three months ended June 30, 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2015 revenue generated in the United States was $150,449 compared to $226,003 for the same period in 2014. For the three months ended June 30, 2015 revenue generated in the United States was $100,938 compared to $104,592 for the same period in 2014. These represent year-over-year decreases in US- source revenue of approximately 33% and 3%, respectively, and is primarily attributable to limited inventory in stock.

 

Sales from online retailers of the TruXmart products decreased from $212,727 in the six months ended June 30, 2014 to $139,043 in the six months ended June 30, 2015, a decrease of 35%. The online retailers accounted for over 65% of total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2015, compared to 53% for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Distributor sales decreased from $88,881 in 2014, to $82,594 in 2015.

 

Sales from online retailers of the TruXmart products decreased from $103,415 in the three months ended June 30, 2014 to $102,113 in the three months ended June 30, 2015, a decrease of 1.27%. The online retailers accounted for over 47% of total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to 60% for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Distributor sales increased from $38,219 in 2014, to $62,280 in 2015.

 

Currently, TruXmart has two major distributors in Canada, one in the United States, along with its own contracted distribution and inventory facility in Depew, NY. This does not include multiple independent online retailers.

 

 
17
 

 

Although TruXmart currently supports a total of 10 dealers and distributors, TruXmart believes the trend of increasing sales through online retailers will continue to outpace the traditional distribution business model. Moreover, reputable online retailer’s customers tend to provide larger sales volumes, greater margin of profit as well as greater protection against price erosion.

 

Cost of Sales

 

Cost of sales decreased for the first six months of 2015 as compared to the first six months of 2014 by 4% from $226,846 to $218,007, representing 81% of revenue. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in sales for the period. Our cost of sales, as a percentage of sales, was approximately 69% and 81% for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2015, respectively. During the three months ended June 30, 2015, cost of sales increased by 31% to $155,721 from $118,978 in the three months ended June 30, 2014. This increase was due to increased sales for the period. Cost of sales, as a percentage of sales was approximately 72% and 81% for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2015. These increases, and the corresponding decreases in gross margin is primarily related to the fluctuation foreign exchange rate used to translate Canadian Dollar sales into United States Dollars for purposes of financial reporting. Freight costs represent 17% of our costs of goods sold whereas in 2014 it accounted for 25%.

 

TruXmart provides its distributors and online retailers an “all-in” wholesale price. This includes any import duty charges, taxes and shipping charges. Discounts are applied if the distributor or retailer chooses to use their own shipping process. Certain exceptions apply on rare occasions where product is shipped outside the contiguous United Sates or from the United States to Canada. Volume discounts are also offered to certain higher volume customers.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $900,125 compared to $125,324 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, while they amounted to $858,549 and $83,456 for the three month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 respectively. Our office and general expense increased by $8,900, from $24,627 to $33,527, during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and $10,022, from $12,753 to $22,775, during the three months ended June 30, 2015. These increases are a result of increased compensation paid to Steve Rossi with respect to services rendered to the Company year over year. Shipping and freight increased by $10,796, from $38,733 to $49,529, during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and by $28,198, from $20,049 to $48,287, during the three months ended June 30, 2015. These increases are a result of starting to ship our new hard cover during the quarter ended June 30, 2015 which costs about twice the amount of the current tonneau cover to ship. Sales and marketing increased $75,596 from $33,911 to $109,507 during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and by $72,396 from $28,746 to $101,142 during the three months ended June 30, 2015. These increases are due to increased personnel costs paid for sales services, as well as the fair value of 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock issued to a key sales representative during the quarter ended June 30, 2015. Professional fees which include accounting, legal and consulting fees increased from $10,373 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 to $646,820 for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Professional fees for the three months ended June 30, 2015, increased by $622,463 to $632,836 from similar expenses of $12,753 during the three months ended June 30, 2014. The Company has incurred significantly more compliance costs with respect to accounting and legal services since completing the Reverse Acquisition during fiscal 2014. Also included in professional fees for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, is $517,664 related to the fair value of shares of the Company’s common stock issued to various consultants with respect to marketing, brand development and capital and financial structuring as described in note 11 of the financial statements. As TruXmart was a private company during the six months ended June 30, 2014, they did not incur such costs. The Company also incurred repairs and maintenance expenses of $18 and $3,724 on its previous premises during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2015. The Company did not incur any such expenses during the comparative periods ended June 30, 2014. The Company incurred rent and utilities expense of $15,095 during the six months ended June 30, 2015, and increase of $7,113 from rent and utilities expense of $7,982 incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2014. Rent expense amounted to $12,881 during the three months ended June 30, 2015, an increase of $8,858 compared to rent expense of $4,023 incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2014. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company moved its operations to a new location which has resulted in increased rent expense. The Company also incurred an additional $38,280 of transaction costs pursuant to a settlement agreement reached with a vendor during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $847,860 compared to a net loss of $22,006 for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $822,174 compared to a net loss of $37,526 during the three months ended June 30, 2014. The increase in the net loss was mainly due to the increase in various expenses, in particular professional fees and transaction costs, as well as reduced sales as discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash Flow Activities

 

Cash decreased from $155,735 at December 31, 2014 to $91,704 at June 30, 2015. The decrease was primarily the result of the working capital requirements of the Company being in excess of the proceeds received from various issuances of share capital during the six months ended June 30, 2015. Accounts receivable increased by $67,968 from $19,002 at December 31, 2014 to $86,970 at June 30, 2015. Inventory increased by $161,194 from $88,766 at December 31, 2014 to $249,960 at June 30, 2015 largely as a result of the timing of the receipt of inventory shipments. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities increased by $32,561 from $287,353 at December 31, 2014 to $303,914 at June 30, 2015. The increase in payables is related to the accrual of various professional fees during the six months ended June 30, 2015, as well as some residual transaction costs incurred during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

 

Financing Activities

 

During the first six months of 2014, TruXmart funded working capital requirements principally through cash flows from operations and stockholder loans when required. During the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2015, the Company has been able to raise capital through private placements of shares of the Company’s common stock. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company has received subscriptions for 2,777,528 shares of its common stock for proceeds of $429,800.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements with any party.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these consolidated 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. We evaluate our estimates on an ongoing basis, including those related to provisions for uncollectible accounts receivable, inventories, valuation of intangible assets and contingencies and litigation. 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.

 

The accounting policies that we follow are set forth in Note 3 to our financial statements as included in this annual report. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)). Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered in this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time periods and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error or fraud. 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. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to 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. To address the material weaknesses, we performed additional analysis and other post-closing procedures in an effort to ensure our consolidated financial statements included in this annual report have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this report fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act, as amended. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer and effected by our Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

 

The framework our management uses to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting is based on the guidance provided by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) of the Treadway Commission in its 1992 report: INTERNAL CONTROL - INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK. Based on our evaluation under the framework described above, our management has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of June 30, 2015 due to the same material weaknesses that rendered our disclosure controls and procedures ineffective. The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is not effective due to a lack of sufficient resources to hire a support staff in order to separate duties between different individuals. The Company lacks the appropriate personnel to handle all the varying recording and reporting tasks on a timely basis. The Company plans to address these material weaknesses as resources become available by hiring additional professional staff, such as a Chief Financial Officer, as funding becomes available, outsourcing certain aspects of the recording and reporting functions, and separating responsibilities. We have identified the following material weak-nesses.

 

1. As of June 30, 2015, we did not maintain effective controls over the control environment. Specifically, we have not developed and effectively communicated to our employees the accounting policies and procedures to ensure all transactions are recorded appropriately with respect to timing and classification. This has resulted in inconsistent practices and increased risk with respect to ensuring transactions are recorded in the correct fiscal period. Further, the Board of Directors does not currently have any independent members and no director qualifies as an audit committee financial expert as defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. Since these entity level programs have a pervasive effect across the organization, management has determined that these circumstances constitute a material weakness.

 

2. As of June 30, 2015, we did not maintain effective controls over financial statement disclosure. Specifically, controls were not designed and in place to ensure that all disclosures required were originally addressed in our financial statements. Accordingly, management has determined that this control deficiency constitutes a material weakness.

 

 
20
 

 

Because of these material weaknesses, management has concluded that the Company did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2015, based on the criteria established in "INTERNAL CONTROL-INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK" issued by the COSO.

 

Change In Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal year that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Attestation Report of the Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Inherent Limitations over Internal Controls

 

FNHI’s management does not expect that its disclosure controls or its internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Further, because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within FNHI have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

 

Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of that our reports will be accurate. Our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer concludes that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at that reasonable assurance level, as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q. Our future reports shall also indicate that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed for this reason and shall indicate the related conclusion by the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer as to their effectiveness.
