NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of presentation and principals of consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 have been prepared by us without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows as of March 31, 2017 and 2016, and for the periods then ended, have been made. Those adjustments consist of normal and recurring adjustments. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated 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 consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 include the collectability of rent, the useful life of rental properties and property and equipment, assumptions used in assessing impairment of long-term assets, valuation allowances for deferred tax assets, and the fair value of non-cash equity transactions, including options and stock-based compensation.

 

Risks and uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are subject to risk and uncertainties including financial, operational, regulatory and other risks including the potential risk of business failure. The Company conducts a significant portion of its business in Arizona. Additionally, the Company’s tenants operate in the medical marijuana industry. Consequently, any significant economic downturn in the Arizona market or any changes in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws or changes in state laws could potentially have a negative effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition.

MARCH 31, 2017

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Risks and uncertainties (continued)

 

The majority of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents are held at major commercial banks, which may at times exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) limit. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses on its invested cash. The Company had no cash equivalents at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016. At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company had approximately $1.9 million and $116,000 of cash in excess of FDIC limits, respectively.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents, note receivable, deferred rent receivable, prepaid expenses and other current assets, real estate tax escrow, short-term notes payable, mortgages payable, convertible notes payable, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other payables approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

The Company analyzes all financial instruments with features of both liabilities and equity under the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s (the “FASB”) accounting standard for such instruments. Under this standard, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company did not identify any assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820.

 

ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments”, allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value (fair value option). The fair value option may be elected on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is irrevocable, unless a new election date occurs. If the fair value option is elected for an instrument, unrealized gains and losses for that instrument should be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date. The Company did not elect to apply the fair value option to any outstanding instruments.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments.

 

Accounts and note receivable

 

The Company recognizes an allowance for losses on accounts and notes receivable in an amount equal to the estimated probable losses net of recoveries. The allowance is based on an analysis of historical bad debt experience, current receivables aging, and expected future write-offs, as well as an assessment of specific identifiable customer accounts considered at risk or uncollectible. The expense associated with the allowance for doubtful accounts is recognized in general and administrative expense.

 

Real estate tax escrow

 

Real estate tax escrow consists of funds held for the purpose of real estate taxes owed. These funds will be released as required to satisfy tax payments as due.

 

Rental property held for sale

 

The Company classifies assets as held for sale when an asset or asset group meets all of the held for sale criteria in the accounting guidance for impairment and disposal of long-lived assets. Assets held for sale are initially measured at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. The rental property held for sale at December 31, 2016 represented a building, improvements, and land in Tempe, Arizona was sold in March 2017. At March 31. 2017, there were no assets held for sale.

 

Rental properties

 

Rental properties are carried at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Betterments, major renovations and certain costs directly related to the improvement of rental properties are capitalized. Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is recognized on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from 5 to 39 years. Tenant improvements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the lives of the related leases, which approximate the useful lives of the assets.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2017

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Rental properties (continued)

 

Upon the acquisition of real estate, the Company assesses the fair value of acquired assets (including land, buildings and improvements, identified intangibles, such as acquired above-market leases and acquired in-place leases) and acquired liabilities (such as acquired below-market leases) and allocate the purchase price based on these assessments. The Company assesses fair value based on estimated cash flow projections that utilize appropriate discount and capitalization rates and available market information. Estimates of future cash flows are based on a number of factors including historical operating results, known trends, and market/economic conditions.

 

The Company’s rental properties are individually reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment exists when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the aggregate projected future cash flows over the anticipated holding period on an undiscounted basis. An impairment loss is measured based on the excess of the property’s carrying amount over its estimated fair value. Impairment analyses are based on our current plans, intended holding periods and available market information at the time the analyses are prepared. If the Company’s estimates of the projected future cash flows, anticipated holding periods, or market conditions change, the Company’s evaluation of impairment losses may be different and such differences could be material to its consolidated financial statements.

 

The evaluation of anticipated cash flows is subjective and is based, in part, on assumptions regarding future occupancy, rental rates and capital requirements that could differ materially from actual results. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company did not record any impairment losses.

 

The Company has capitalized land, which is not subject to depreciation.

 

Property and equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided utilizing the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. The Company uses a five year life for office equipment, seven years for furniture and fixtures, and five to ten years for vehicles. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Upon sale or retirement of property and equipment, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in statements of operations.

 

The Company examines the possibility of decreases in the value of these assets when events or changes in circumstances reflect the fact that their recorded value may not be recoverable.

 

Revenue recognition

 

Rental income includes base rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of its respective lease and is reported on a straight-line basis over the non-cancellable term of the lease, which includes the effects of rent steps and rent abatements under the leases. The Company commences rental revenue recognition when the tenant takes possession of the leased space or controls the physical use of the leased space and the leased space is substantially ready for its intended use.

 

Certain of the Company’s leases currently contain rental increases at specified intervals. The Company records as an asset, and include in revenue, rents receivable that will be received if the tenant makes all rent payments required through the expiration of the initial term of the lease. Deferred rents receivable in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets include the cumulative difference between rental revenue recorded on a straight-line basis and rents received from the tenants in accordance with the lease terms. Accordingly, management determines to what extent the deferred rent receivable applicable to each specific tenant is collectible. The Company reviews material rents receivable and takes into consideration the tenant’s payment history, the financial condition of the tenant, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant operates and economic conditions in the area in which the property is located. In the event that the collectability of rent receivable with respect to any given tenant is in doubt, we record an increase in the allowance for uncollectible accounts or the Company records a direct write-off of the specific rent receivable. No such reserves related to deferred rent receivable have been recorded as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Basic income (loss) per share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and as-if converted method. Potentially dilutive common shares and participating securities are excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding if they would have an anti-dilutive impact on the Company’s net losses. The Company’s preferred stock is considered a participating securities since the preferred shares are entitled to dividends equal to common share dividends and accordingly, are included in the computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two-class method of computing earnings per share is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for common stock and any participating securities according to dividends declared (whether paid or unpaid) and participation rights in undistributed earnings. The following table presents a reconciliation of basic and diluted net income per share:

Segment reporting

 

The Company’s business is comprised of one reportable segment. The Company has determined that its properties have similar economic characteristics to be aggregated into one reportable segment (operating, leasing and managing commercial properties). The Company’s determination was based primarily on its method of internal reporting.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Income tax

 

Deferred income tax assets and liabilities arise from temporary differences between the financial statements and tax basis of assets and liabilities, as measured by the enacted tax rates, which are expected to be in effect when these differences reverse. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are classified as current or non-current, depending upon the classification of the asset or liabilities to which they relate. Deferred tax assets and liabilities not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or non-current depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

The Company follows the provisions of FASB ASC 740-10 “Uncertainty in Income Taxes”. Certain recognition thresholds must be met before a tax position is recognized in the financial statements. An entity may only recognize or continue to recognize tax positions that meet a “more-likely-than-not” threshold.

 

The Company does not believe it has any uncertain tax positions as of March 31, 2017 and 2016 that would require either recognition or disclosure in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of ASC 718 – “Compensation –Stock Compensation”, which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. Additionally, effective January 1, 2017, the Company adopted the Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 (“ASU 2016-09”), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU 2016-09 permits the election of an accounting policy for forfeitures of share-based payment awards, either to recognize forfeitures as they occur or estimate forfeitures over the vesting period of the award. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur and the cumulative impact of this change did not have any effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Pursuant to ASC 505-50 – “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”, all share-based payments to non-employees, including grants of stock options, are recognized in the consolidated financial statements as compensation expense over the service period of the consulting arrangement or until performance conditions are expected to be met. Using a Black-Scholes valuation model, the Company periodically reassessed the fair value of non-employee options until service conditions are met, which generally aligns with the vesting period of the options, and the Company adjusts the expense recognized in the consolidated financial statements accordingly.

 

Related parties

 

Parties are considered to be related to the Company if the parties, directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, control, are controlled by, or are under common control with the Company. Related parties also include principal owners of the Company, its management, members of the immediate families of principal owners of the Company and its management and other parties with which the Company may deal with if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests.

 

Recently issued accounting pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued an update (“ASU 2014-09”) Revenue from Contracts with Customers. ASU 2014-09 establishes a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most of the existing revenue recognition guidance and notes that lease contracts with customers are a scope exception. ASU 2014-09 requires an entity to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services and also requires certain additional disclosures. On August 12, 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14 to defer the effective date of ASU 2014-09. Public business entities may elect to adopt the amendments as of the original effective date; however, adoption is required for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the guidance on the consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Recently issued accounting pronouncements (continued)

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”), which requires entities to present deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities as noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. The ASU simplifies the current guidance in ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, which requires entities to separately present deferred tax assets and liabilities as current and noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. ASU 2015-17 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for all entities as of the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. The adoption of ASU 2015-17 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

On February 25, 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02 (“ASU 2016-02”) to amend the accounting guidance for leases. The accounting applied by a lessor is largely unchanged under ASU 2016-02. However, the standard requires lessees to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities for leases classified as operating leases on the balance sheet. Lessees will recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. If a lessee makes this election, it will recognize lease expense for such leases generally on a straight-line basis over the lease term. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the guidance on its consolidated financial statements and notes to its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 related to leases. This ASU requires the recognition of a right-of-use lease asset and a lease liability by lessees for all leases greater than one year in duration. This ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The guidance must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition. The Company is evaluating the impact this ASU will have on its consolidated financial statements and whether to early adopt.

 

On March 30, 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09 (“ASU 2016-09”) to amend the accounting guidance for share-based payment accounting. The areas for simplification in ASU 2016-09 involve several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, forfeitures, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption is permitted. This standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15 which addresses eight cash flow classification issues, eliminating the diversity in practice. This ASU is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The retrospective transition method, requiring adjustment to all comparative periods presented, is required unless it is impracticable for some of the amendments, in which case those amendments would be prospectively applied as of the earliest date practicable. The Company is evaluating the impact this ASU will have on its consolidated financial statements and whether to early adopt.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued the Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-01 (“ASU 2017-01”), Clarifying the Definition of a Business. ASU 2017-01 clarifies the definition of a business and establishes a screening process to determine whether an integrated set of assets and activities acquired is deemed the acquisition of a business or the acquisition of assets. ASU 2017-01 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and should be applied prospectively, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect that adoption of ASU 2017-01 will have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain reclassifications have been made in the prior period’s consolidated financial statements to conform to the current period’s presentation. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company increased revenues - related parties and real estate tax expense by $6,517.

NOTE 9 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (continued)

 

(D) Stock options granted pursuant to consulting and employment agreements

 

On May 6, 2015, the Company entered into a 36-month consulting agreement with a stockholder for business advisory services. In connection with this consulting agreement, the Company granted options to purchase 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share under the 2014 Plan. The options vest as to 125,000 of such shares on July 1, 2015 and for each quarter thereafter through April 1, 2017, and expire on May 5, 2025 or earlier due to employment termination. The Company recognize compensation expenses over the period during which the services are rendered by such consultant or over the vesting period. At the end of each financial reporting period prior to completion of the service, the fair value of this option award is remeasured using the then-current fair value of the Company’s common stock and updated assumptions in the Black-Scholes option-pricing model for stock options. During the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company used the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 120% to 164.6%; risk-free interest rate of 2.25% to 2.40%; and, an estimated holding period of 8.1 years to 10 years. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded stock-based consulting expense (income) of $(28,567) and $111,901, respectively, related to these options.

 

In connection with an employment agreement with a former officer of the Company, on January 8, 2016, 250,000 non-vested options were cancelled. Accordingly upon termination, during the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company reversed all stock-based compensation previously recognized on the non-vested stock options of $62,944 which was reflected as a reduction of compensation and benefits expense. Additionally, in April 2016, the remaining 50,000 vested stock options were cancelled due to employment termination.

 

On December 30, 2015, the Company granted the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President an option, pursuant to the 2014 Plan, to purchase 250,000 of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. The grant date of the option was December 30, 2015 and the option expires on December 30, 2026. The option vests as to (i) 25,000 of such shares on December 30, 2015, and (ii) as to 25,000 of such shares on December 30, 2016 and each year thereafter through December 30, 2026. The fair value of this option grant was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: dividend yield of 0%; expected volatility of 120%; risk-free interest rate of 2.31%; and, an estimated holding period of 10 years. In connection with these options, the Company valued these options at a fair value of $237,150 and will record stock-based compensation expense over the vesting period. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded stock-based compensation expense of $10,843 and $16,772, respectively.

 

At March 31, 2017, there were 1,250,000 options outstanding and 925,000 options vested and exercisable. As of March 31, 2017, there was $135,502 of unvested stock-based compensation expense to be recognized through December 2026. The aggregate intrinsic value at March 31, 2017 was approximately $625,000 and was calculated based on the difference between the quoted share price on March 31, 2017 and the exercise price of the underlying options.

 

Stock option activities for the three months ended March 31, 2017 are summarized as follows:

 

   Number of Options   Weighted Average Exercise Price   Weighted Average Remaining Contractual Term (Years)   Aggregate Intrinsic Value 
Balance Outstanding December 31, 2016   1,250,000   $1.00    -   $-

Payments will be made monthly and there will be no pre-payment penalty. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the parties will cooperate in good faith to complete due diligence during a period of 45 days following execution of the Agreement. The closing is subject to certain contingencies, including that Zoned Colorado must obtain acceptable financing for the purchase and development of the property, the grant of a special use permit by the Town of Parachute, approval of a protected development deal or equivalent agreement by the Town of Parachute, execution of a lease agreement by a prospective tenant and the prospective tenant’s obtaining a license to cultivate on the property. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, Zoned Colorado will have a right of first refusal on eleven additional lots owned by Seller in Parachute, Colorado. In April 2016, the Company paid a refundable deposit of $45,000 into escrow in connection with the Agreement. As of March 31, 2017, the Company and Seller have yet to complete the purchase.

 

Legal matters

 

In a letter dated May 10, 2016, Marc Brannigan, the Company’s former CEO, and related parties (collectively “Brannigan”) sent a demand letter, through counsel, to the Company and certain other third-parties, claiming, among other things, that the Company improperly diluted Brannigan’s equity in the Company. Brannigan demands that the Company issue shares to “reverse” the dilution, invalidate shares improperly issued by the Company, pay unspecified damages, recover one-third of all Company shares owned by Alan Abrams and Chris Carra, and recover Brannigan’s purported majority ownership and voting control of the Company. The Company has evaluated Brannigan’s purported claims, and intends to vigorously defend against such claim. A mediation involving all interested parties occurred on July 29, 2016 and was unsuccessful. The Company believes that there will be no financial impact on the Company’s financial statements other than costs incurred for legal and travel fees.

 

Operating lease

 

On March 9, 2017 and effective April 1, 2017, the Company executed a one-year operating lease for its office space in Scottsdale, Arizona for annual rent of $7,200. In March 2017, the Company prepaid the first six months of this operating lease

 

NOTE 11 – CONCENTRATIONS

 

Rental income and rent receivable – related parties

 

The Company entered into lease agreements with non-profit companies whose director is a beneficial stockholder of the Company. Additionally, during the year ended December 31, 2015 and as amended during 2016, the Company entered into lease agreements with companies owned by this beneficial stockholder of the Company. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, rental revenue associated with these leases amounted to $490,194 and $352,043, which represents 90.7% and 85.3% of total revenues, respectively. At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, deferred rent receivable – related parties amounted to $1,186,139 and $1,006,171, respectively. A reduction in sales from or loss of such related party leases would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations and financial condition.

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information and Factors That May Affect Future Results

 

This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements regarding our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company’s future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other written and oral statements that we make from time to time contain such forward-looking statements that set out anticipated results based on management’s plans and assumptions regarding future events or performance. We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “will” and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, future performance or results of current and anticipated sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings, and financial results. Factors that could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially are set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of our annual report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC on March 27, 2017, and the same may be updated from time to time in documents that we file with the SEC.

 

We caution that these factors could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements we make and that investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of such factors. Further, we cannot assess the impact of each such factor on our results of operations or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our unaudited financial statements and the related notes that appear elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

 

Business and Corporate History

 

We are a strategic real estate development firm whose primary mission is to identify, develop, and lease sophisticated, safe, and sustainable properties in emerging industries, including the licensed medical marijuana industry. Our vision is to be recognized for creating the standard in property development for emerging industries, while increasing community prosperity and shareholder value. We believe that a strong focus on the development of real estate properties will bring value to the local communities and all of our stakeholders. We have initially established a focus on properties within the medical marijuana industry because we believe there will be increasing demand in this industry, as the national industry continues to evolve.

 

We target commercial properties that can be acquired and potentially re-zoned for specific development purposes, including but not limited to, licensed medical marijuana dispensaries or cultivation facilities. The core of our business involves identifying and acquiring properties that exist within highly regulated zoning regions and may be candidates for re-zoning. This is an essential aspect of our overall growth strategy because we target uniquely zoned properties that are developed as candidates for specific industry operators. Once the properties have been acquired and/or re-zoned, their value may be substantially higher as demand for properties within the specific zoning region increases.

 

We manage a portfolio of properties that we own, lease, and provide direct development on each property we acquire. This can include complete architectural design and subsequent build-outs, general support, landscaping, general up-keep, facilities management, and state of the art security systems.

The following comparative analysis of results of operations was based primarily on the comparative unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, footnotes and related information for the periods identified below and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, which are included elsewhere in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

 

Comparison of Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017 and 2016

 

Revenues

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, revenues consisted of the following:

 

   Three Months ended
March 31,
 
   2017   2016 
         
Rent revenues  $50,073   $60,880 
Rent revenues – related parties   490,194    352,043

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, total revenues amounted to $540,267, including related party revenues of $490,194, as compared to $412,043, including related party revenues of $352,043, for the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $127,344 or 30.8%. This increase in revenues was attributable to an increase in rent revenues – related parties of $138,151 or 39.2% due to the increase in space leased to related parties, offset by a decrease in third party rent revenues of $10,807 or 14.8% caused by the sale the Tempe building that was leased to a third-party tenant.

Operating expenses

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, operating expenses amounted to $406,174 as compared to $592,703 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease of $186,529 or 31.5%. For the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, operating expenses consisted of the following:

 

   Three Months Ended
March 31,
 
   2017   2016 
Compensation and benefits  $218,293   $179,824 
Professional fees   38,478    276,522 
General and administrative expenses   45,374    51,621

Real estate taxes   24,076    28,178 
Total  $406,174   $592,703 

 

  For the three months ended March 31, 2017, compensation and benefit expense increased by $38,469 or 21.4% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we recorded stock-based compensation of $155,394 as compared to $99,328 for the comparable 2016 period, an increase of $56,066 or 56.4% This increase was offset by a decrease in other compensation and benefit expenses of $17,597 due to a decrease in staff.
     
  For the three months ended March 31, 2017, professional fees decreased by $238,044, or 86.1%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in legal fees of $71,468 attributable to a decrease in activities related to legacy legal issues and other legal matters, a decrease in consulting fees of $146,470 related to a decrease in accretion of stock-based consulting expense from the granting of stock options to a consultant, and a decrease in other professional fees of $20,106.
     
  General and administrative expenses consist of expenses such as rent expense, directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, travel expenses, office expenses, telephone and internet expenses and other general operating expenses. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, general and administrative expenses decreased by $6,247 or 12.1% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016. These decreases were primarily attributable to a decrease in in these expenses due to cost cutting measures.
     
  For the three months ended March 31, 2017, depreciation and amortization expense increased by $17,582 or 42.8% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016 and was attributable to an increase in depreciable assets.
     
  Property operating expenses consist of property management fees, property insurance, repairs and maintenance fees, utilities and other expenses related to our rental properties. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, property operating expenses increased by $5,813 or 37.6% as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2016 primarily related to an increase in repair and maintenance expenses incurred of $5,420.
     
  For the three months ended March 31, 2017, real estate taxes amounted to $24,076 as compared to $28,178 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease of $4,102 or 14.6%. This decrease was attributable to a decrease in real estate taxes incurred due to the sale of one of our Tempe, AZ buildings and a decrease in real estate taxes on our Green Valley property caused by us obtaining “permanently-affixed status” for our structure located on this property.

  

Income (loss) from operations

 

As a result of the factors described above, for the three months ended March 31, 2017, income from operations amounted to $134,093 as compared to a loss from operations of $179,780 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a turnaround of $313,873 or 174.6%.

 

Other income (expenses), net

 

Other income (expenses) primarily includes interest expense incurred on debt with third parties and related parties, and also includes other income (expenses). For the three months ended March 31, 2017, total other income, net amounted to $754,574 as compared to total other expenses of $56,873, representing an increase of $811,447 or 1,426.8%. Pursuant to the terms of a Commercial Real Estate Purchase Contract (the “Purchase Contract”) with a third party dated December 22, 2016, we sold our property located at 422 S. Madison Drive in Tempe, Arizona, for an aggregate purchase price of $2.125 million. Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Contract, we recognized a gain on the sale of this building of approximately $831,000.

 

 19 

 

 

Net income (loss)

 

As a result of the foregoing, for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, net income (loss) amounted to $888,667, or $0.05 per common share (basic and diluted), and $(236,653), or $(0.01) per common share (basic and diluted), respectively.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash requirements. We had cash of $2,131,685 and $366,024 of cash as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

 

Our primary uses of cash have been for salaries, fees paid to third parties for professional services, property operating expenses, general and administrative expenses, and the acquisition and development of rental properties. All funds received have been expended in the furtherance of growing the business. We have received funds from the collection of rental income, and from various financing activities such as from the sale of our common stock and from debt financings. The following trends are reasonably likely to result in changes in our liquidity over the near to long term:

 

  An increase in working capital requirements to finance our current business,
  Acquisition and buildout of rental properties;
  Addition of administrative and sales personnel as the business grows, and
  The cost of being a public company.

 

We currently budget that we would need to spend approximately $3,500,000 on capital expenditures for the expansion and buildout of our Chino Valley Property and the acquisition and development of our Parachute Project. These capital expenditures are contingent upon several factors including: the Company obtaining financing for the development of the premises and the construction of the tenant improvements in such amount and on such terms and provisions as are acceptable to the Company in our sole and absolute discretion from a lender approved by us in our sole discretion. Accordingly, we can delay or cancel these planned capital expenditures, if necessary.

 

We may need to raise additional funds, particularly if we are unable to generate positive cash flow as a result of our operations. We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash will be sufficient to satisfy our cash requirements under our present operating expectations for the next 12 months from the issuance date of these condensed consolidated financial statements. Other than revenue received from the lease of our rental properties, funds received from the sale of our common stock and funds received from debt, we presently have no other significant alternative source of working capital.

 

We have used these funds to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations, acquire and develop rental properties, and grow our company. We need to raise significant additional capital or debt financing to acquire new properties, to develop existing properties, and to assure we have sufficient working capital for our ongoing operations and debt obligations.

 

On December 22, 2016, we entered into a Commercial Real Estate Purchase Contract (the “Agreement”) with a third party (the “Purchaser”) pursuant to which we agreed to sell, and the Purchaser agreed to purchase, the property located at 422 S. Madison Drive in Tempe, Arizona, for an aggregate purchase price of $2.125 million. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the purchase closed on March 15, 2017. In connection with the sale of this building on March 15, 2017, we repaid the all outstanding principal of $2.1 million and interest due on this mortgage. 

 

On January 9, 2017, we issued a convertible debenture (the “Abrams Debenture”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000 in favor of Alan Abrams, a significant stockholder of the Company, in exchange for cash from Mr. Abrams of $2,000,000. Also on January 9, 2017, we issued a convertible debenture (the “McLaren Debenture” and together with the Abrams Debenture, the “Debentures”) in the aggregate principal amount of $20,000 in favor of Bryan McLaren, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President and a member of our Board of Directors, in exchange for cash from Mr. McLaren of $20,000. Each of Mr. Abrams and Mr. McLaren is referred to herein as a “Holder.” Each of the Debentures accrues interest at the rate of 6% per annum payable quarterly by the 1st of each quarter and matures on January 9, 2022. We may prepay the Debentures at any point after six months, in whole or in part. Pursuant to the terms of each of the Debentures, the Holder is entitled to convert all or a portion of the principal balance and all accrued and unpaid interest due under the respective Debenture into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $5.00 per share. If we default on payment, the Holder may at his option, extend all conversion rights, through and including the date we tender or attempt to tender payment in full of all amounts due under the Debenture. Any amount of principal or interest, which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum. Upon an Event of Default (as defined in each Debenture), the Holder may (i) declare the entire principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the Debenture immediately due and payable, and (ii) exercise any and all rights, powers and remedies available to the Holder at law or in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for the specific performance of any covenant or agreement contained in the Debenture and proceed to enforce the payment thereof or any other legal or equitable right of the Holder.

On March 30, 2017, in connection with a fourth amendment to the commercial lease agreement (the “Amendment”) with C3C3 Group, LLC, a company owned by this beneficial shareholder of the Company (the “Tenant” or “C3C3”), we agreed to defer rent and applicable taxes due for March, April and May 2017 in the form of a note receivable to C3C3 at an 8% interest rate commencing March 1, 2017 and payable over 12 months commencing January 1, 2018. At March 31, 2017, note receivable amounted to $58,258.

 

On April 20, 2017, we repaid two convertible notes issued in August 2014 for $1 million, in aggregate, and accrued interest of approximately $96,000.

 

Our future operation is dependent on our ability to manage our current cash balances and on the collection of rental revenues. We intend on securing additional financing to acquire and develop additional and existing properties. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow our business operations.

Contractual Obligations and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We have certain fixed contractual obligations and commitments that include future estimated payments. Changes in our business needs, cancellation provisions, changing interest rates, and other factors may result in actual payments differing from the estimates. We cannot provide certainty regarding the timing and amounts of payments. We have presented below a summary of the most significant assumptions used in our determination of amounts presented in the tables, in order to assist in the review of this information within the context of our consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

The following tables summarize our contractual obligations as of March 31, 2017 (dollars in thousands), and the effect these obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flows in future periods.

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as shareholder’s equity or that are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to such entity. We do not have any variable interest in any unconsolidated entity that provides financing, liquidity, market risk or credit support to us or engages in leasing, hedging or research and development services with us.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our audited and unaudited consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. 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 continually evaluate our estimates, including those related to income taxes, and the valuation of equity transactions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we 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. Any future changes to these estimates and assumptions could cause a material change to our reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe the following critical accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of the unaudited consolidated financial statements.

 

Rental Properties

 

Rental properties are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Betterments, major renovations and certain costs directly related to the improvement of rental properties are capitalized. Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is recognized on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from 7 to 39 years. Tenant improvements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the lives of the related leases, which approximate the useful lives of the assets.

 

Upon the acquisition of real estate, we assess the fair value of acquired assets (including land, buildings and improvements, identified intangibles, such as acquired above-market leases and acquired in-place leases) and acquired liabilities (such as acquired below-market leases) and allocate the purchase price based on these assessments. The Company assesses fair value based on estimated cash flow projections that utilize appropriate discount and capitalization rates and available market information. Estimates of future cash flows are based on a number of factors including historical operating results, known trends, and market/economic conditions.

 

Our properties are individually reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. An impairment exists when the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the aggregate projected future cash flows over the anticipated holding period on an undiscounted basis. An impairment loss is measured based on the excess of the property’s carrying amount over its estimated fair value. Impairment analyses are based on our current plans, intended holding periods and available market information at the time the analyses are prepared. If our estimates of the projected future cash flows, anticipated holding periods, or market conditions change, our evaluation of impairment losses may be different and such differences could be material to our consolidated financial statements. The evaluation of anticipated cash flows is subjective and is based, in part, on assumptions regarding future occupancy, rental rates and capital requirements that could differ materially from actual results.

 

We have capitalized land, which is not subject to depreciation.

Revenue recognition

 

Rental income includes base rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of its respective lease and is reported on a straight-line basis over the non-cancellable term of the lease, which includes the effects of rent steps and rent abatements under the leases. We commence rental revenue recognition when the tenant takes possession of the leased space or controls the physical use of the leased space and the leased space is substantially ready for its intended use.

 

Certain of our leases currently contain rental increases at specified intervals. We record as an asset, and include in revenue, rents receivable that will be received if the tenant makes all rent payments required through the expiration of the initial term of the lease. Deferred rents receivable in the accompanying balance sheets includes the cumulative difference between rental revenue recorded on a straight-line basis and rents received from the tenants in accordance with the lease terms. Accordingly, management determines to what extent the deferred rent receivable applicable to each specific tenant is collectible. We review material rents receivable and takes into consideration the tenant’s payment history, the financial condition of the tenant, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant operates and economic conditions in the area in which the property is located. In the event that the collectability of rent receivable with respect to any given tenant is in doubt, we record an increase in the allowance for uncollectible accounts or we record a direct write-off of the specific rent receivable.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award. Additionally, effective January 1, 2017, the Company adopted the Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 (“ASU 2016-09”), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU 2016-09 permits the election of an accounting policy for forfeitures of share-based payment awards, either to recognize forfeitures as they occur or estimate forfeitures over the vesting period of the award. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur and the cumulative impact of this change did not have any effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Pursuant to ASC 505-50 – “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”, all share-based payments to non-employees, including grants of stock options, are recognized in the consolidated financial statements as compensation expense over the service period of the consulting arrangement or until performance conditions are expected to be met. Using a Black-Scholes valuation model, we periodically reassessed the fair value of non-employee options until service conditions are met, which generally aligns with the vesting period of the options, and we adjust the expense recognized in the consolidated financial statements accordingly.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as that term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e), promulgated by the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our company’s reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated our company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that as of March 31, 2017, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

The ineffectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting was due to the following material weaknesses which we identified in our internal control over financial reporting: (1) the lack of multiples levels of management review on complex accounting and financial reporting issues, and (2) a lack of adequate segregation of duties and necessary corporate accounting resources in our financial reporting process and accounting function as a result of our limited financial resources to support hiring of personnel and implementation of accounting systems. Until such time as we expand our staff to include additional accounting personnel and hire a full time chief financial officer, it is likely we will continue to report material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in Internal Control

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended March 31, 2017 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

In a letter dated May 10, 2016, Marc Brannigan, the Company’s former CEO, and related parties (collectively, “Brannigan”) sent a demand letter, through counsel, to the Company and certain other third-parties, claiming, among other things, that the Company improperly diluted Brannigan’s equity in the Company. Brannigan demands that the Company issue shares to “reverse” the dilution, invalidate shares improperly issued by the Company, pay unspecified damages, recover one-third of all Company shares owned by Alan Abrams and Chris Carra, and recover Brannigan’s purported majority ownership and voting control of the Company. The Company has evaluated Brannigan’s purported claims, and intends to vigorously defend against such claim. A mediation involving all interested parties occurred on July 29, 2016 and was unsuccessful.
