GOPHER PROTOCOL, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS  

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017 AND 2016  

(UNAUDITED)

 

Note 1 - Organization and Nature of Business

Gopher Protocol Inc. (the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”, “Gopher”, “Gopher Protocol” or “GOPH”) was incorporated on July 22, 2009 under the laws of the State of Nevada and relocated its headquarters to Santa Monica, California in 2016. Gopher is a development stage company that is creating innovative mobile microchip (ICs) and software technologies based on GopherInsight. The Company derived its revenues from the provision of IT services to Guardian Patch LLC, a related party (“Guardian LLC”).

 

GopherInsightis a patented real time, heuristic (self-learning/artificial intelligence) based mobile technology. GopherInsightchip technology, if successfully fully developed, will be able to be installed in mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) as well as stand-alone products. It is intended that GopherInsightsoftware applications will work in conjunction with GopherInsightmicrochips across mobile operating systems, providing computing power, advanced database management/sharing functionalities and more. The technology under development consists of a smart microchip, mobile application software and supporting software. The system contemplates the creation of a global network. Upon development, the Company believes that its microchip technologies may be installed within mobile devices or on SIM cards.

 

On March 29, 2016, the Company contributed all of its rights relating to its proprietary microchip that is within a sticky patch package (the “Patch”) to Guardian LLC in consideration of 50% of the profit generated by Guardian LLC and a commitment from Guardian LLC that it is responsible for investing all needed funds for the purpose of developing the Patch and related products to the Patch, as well as funding the working capital needs of the Company.

 

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies  

Presentation of Financial Statements  

The accompanying financial statements include the accounts of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Use of Estimates  

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates in the accompanying financial statements include depreciable lives of property and equipment, valuation of beneficial conversion feature debt discounts, valuation of derivatives, and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents  

The Company considers all highly liquid financial instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Property and Equipment  

Property and equipment are stated at cost and the related depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Expenditures for repairs and maintenance are charged to operations as incurred. Renewals and betterments are capitalized. Upon the sale or retirement of an asset, the related costs and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is recognized in the results of operations. 

As required by U.S. GAAP for long-lived assets, the Company evaluates the fair value of its property and equipment on an annual basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amounts may not be recoverable. Any impairment of value is recognized when the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. There were no impairment losses for the years ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. The Company has opted to expense all development costs associated with the development of its intellectual property. 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates all of its agreements to determine if such instruments have derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date. As of June 30, 2017, the Company’s only derivative financial instrument was an embedded conversion feature associated with convertible notes payable due to certain provisions that allow for a change in the conversion price based on a percentage of the Company’s stock price at the date of conversion.

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” ASC 820-10 defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

For certain financial instruments, the carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash and current liabilities, including convertible notes payable, each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.

 

The Company uses Level 2 inputs for its valuation methodology for derivative liabilities as their fair values were determined by using the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model based on various assumptions. The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at each period end, with any increase or decrease in the fair value being recorded in results of operations as adjustments to fair value of derivatives.

 

At June 30, 2017, the Company identified the following liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value:

Total  $1,981,296   $   $1,981,296   $ 

  

The Company did not identify any other non-recurring assets and liabilities that are required to be presented in the consolidated balance sheets at fair value in accordance with ASC 815.

Treasury Stock

 

Treasury stock is recorded at cost. The re-issuance of treasury shares is accounted for on a first in, first-out basis and any difference between the cost of treasury shares and the re-issuance proceeds are charged or credited to additional paid-in capital. During 2011, the Company bought back 8 post-split shares (38,000 pre-split) shares of its own shares. 

 

Income Taxes  

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB Codification Topic 740-10-25 (“ASC 740-10-25”) Income Taxes. Under ASC 740-10-25, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under ASC 740-10-25, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount of tax benefits expected to be realized.

 

U.S. GAAP requires that, in applying the liability method, the financial statement effects of an uncertain tax position be recognized based on the outcome that is more likely than not to occur. Under this criterion, the most likely resolution of an uncertain tax position should be analyzed based on technical merits and on the outcome that would likely be sustained under examination. The Company had no uncertain tax positions as of June 30, 2017. The Company’s 2015 tax returns been filed, and 2016 tax returns are under extension, due on October 2017.

 

Nevada Taxation 

All Nevada entities have to file a Commerce Tax Report (“CTR”) with the Nevada Department of Taxation. If the gross revenue of the business is less than $4,000,000, the business would file a CTR showing a zero amount and would be in compliance. The Company is current with its filing of the required CTR as required for the period ended June 30, 2017.

 

Revenue Recognition  

The Company recognized revenue on arrangements in accordance with FASB Codification Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition” (“ASC Topic 605”). Under ASC Topic 605, revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed and determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured. We had revenue of $45,000 and $45,000 for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, which derived 100% in each period from IT-related services from a related party.

 

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, 100% of the Company’s revenue was related to IT service provided to the LLC for Dr. Rittman services, in connection with the development of the Company’s GopherInsight™ technology.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments  

Fair value accounting requires bifurcation of embedded derivative instruments such as conversion features in convertible debt or equity instruments, and measurement of their fair value for accounting purposes. In determining the appropriate fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. In assessing the convertible debt instruments, management determines if the convertible debt host instrument is conventional convertible debt and further if there is a beneficial conversion feature requiring measurement. If the instrument is not considered conventional convertible debt, the Company will continue its evaluation process of these instruments as derivative financial instruments. 

 

Once determined, derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at each reporting period end, with any increase or decrease in the fair value being recorded in results of operations as an adjustment to fair value of derivatives. In addition, the fair value of freestanding derivative instruments such as warrants, are also valued using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.

 

(Loss) Per Share  

In accordance with accounting guidance now codified as FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share,” Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding the effects of any potentially dilutive securities. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential of shares of common stock outstanding during the period including stock options or warrants, using the treasury stock method (by using the average stock price for the period to determine the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants), and convertible debt or convertible preferred stock, using the if-converted method. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential of shares of common stock if their effect is anti-dilutive. Because of the Company’s net losses, the effects of stock options, convertible notes, and convertible preferred stock would be anti-dilutive and accordingly, is excluded from the computation of earnings per share.

Note 3 - Liquidity and Going Concern  

The Company sustained net losses of $1,575,567 in the first six months of 2017, and our operating activities used $255,532. The Company had a working capital deficit of $347,002, stockholders’ deficit of $2,326,882, and accumulated deficit of $5,669,939 at June 30, 2017. This raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is dependent upon its ability to generate revenues and its ability to continue receiving investment capital and loans from third parties to sustain its current level of operations. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts. Per the Joint Venture agreement, Guardian LLC has committed to provide the Company with all its working capital needs, Guardian LLC’s commitment decreased in the past much of the risk of going concern. In lieu of entering series of short terms notes with third parties, the LLC took upon itself a lock-up and leakage agreement, described below. Certain third parties defaulted on their commitment to the Company for funding. The Company entered a negotiation with Guardian LLC to replace these defaulted investors. There is no guarantee that the LLC will agree to continue and replaces said investors, which raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

We plan to raise working capital that will allow us to conduct our business for the next 12 months. There is no guarantee regarding our ability to raise that capital. We expect to use the proceeds to fund our short-term capital requirements including paying administrative expenses associated with maintaining our public company’s filings for the next 12 months. In order to implement our business plan and pay various administrative expenses on a minimal basis for the next 12 months, we expect that we will need approximately $1,200,000, based on our expectation of monthly expenses of approximately $100,000. The Company expects that its operating results will fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter in the future, and will depend on a number of factors including the state of the worldwide economy and financial markets, which are outside the Company’s control. Guardian Patch, LLC, the Company’s JV partner, has committed in the past to support the Company’s working capital needs, by providing the Company with short terms loans. The Company may also pursue capital through the issuance of high-yield debt that will likely be convertible into equity, at either a fixed or a variable conversion rate. Our financing plans and the exact type of debt that we seek will largely be contingent on our pre-sales campaign for the Sphere.

(A) On January 22, 2015, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement with Stanley Hills, the original holder (the “Holder”) of the PTPI Note pursuant to which PTPI Note exchanged $75,273 in debt into a 10% Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of $75,273 (the “Note”). The PTPI Note matures January 21, 2017 (the “Maturity Date”) and interest associated with the Note I Note is 10% per annum, which is payable on the Maturity Date. The PTPI Note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company, at the option of Note I, at a fixed conversion price of $0.00752734.

 

The Holder has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the PTPI Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by it in the aggregate and its affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The PTPI Note was issued in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) under the Securities Act of 1933. The Holder is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933. In addition, on March 2, 2015, the Company and the Holder amended that certain 10% Convertible Debenture (the “PTPI Note I Debenture”) which debt underlying the PTPI Note I Debenture was initially incurred on October 6, 2009 and exchanged for the Note I Debenture on January 19, 2014. The parties agreed that the conversion price in the PTPI Note I Debenture would not be impacted by the 1:1,000 stock split implemented by the Company on February 24, 2015 and will remain $0.0075273.

The Company is under default per the terms of the PTPI Note, as at maturity in January 2017, the Company did not have sufficient free cash to pay off the note. The Company is in negotiations with the Holder in good faith to resolve the situation. The Company cannot predict the result of such negotiations. The current note balance is $30,393, which includes $14,870 of accrued interest. At December 31, 2016, the Company had only this note outstanding as well. The balance at that time was $53,852, which included accrued interest of $13,112, and was net of debt discount.

Guardian LLC (the “Note Holder”) understands that the Company may be seeking additional capital or funding and believes that the lock-up and leak-out restrictions and provisions, as further described herein, will improve the Company’s prospects for obtaining additional financing and thus improving the overall financial condition of the Company. As such on or around June 26, 2017 the Company and the Note Holder entered into a lock-up and leak-out:

 

1.Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Note Holder agrees that for a period of nine (9) months from the Effective Date of this Agreement (the “Lock-Up Period”), the Note Holder shall not convert the Note into Common Stock for safe keeping or, directly or indirectly, sell, offer to sell, contract to sell, assign, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise transfer, or enter into any contract, option or other arrangement or understanding with respect to the sale, assignment, pledge or other disposition of (each a “Transfer”) any beneficial rights with respect to the Note.
2.Leak-Out Provisions.     Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Note Holder agrees that for a period beginning immediately upon the end of the Lock-Up Period and ending fifteen (15) months from the Effective Date of this Agreement (the “Leak-Out Period”), the Note Holder shall have the right to sell the lessor of (i) five (5%) percent of the previous day’s traded volume of the Company’s Common Stock, or (ii) Five Thousand (5,000) shares of the Common Stock on a per daily basis.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $14,870 of accrued interest.

 

(B) On May 23, 2017, the Company entered into a conversion agreement with Guardian Patch I LLC (“Guardian”) pursuant to which the parties agreed to convert the amounts provided by Guardian to the Company, previously recorded in accounts payable and accrued expenses, into a convertible note payable in the amount of $660,132.

Guardian has agreed to restrict their ability to convert the note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.9% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $19,641 of accrued interest.

 

(C) On June 9, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (“CBP”), providing for the purchase of two convertible notes payable in the aggregate amount of $100,000 with the first note being in the amount of $50,000 and the second note being in the amount of $50,000 each accruing interest at 8% per annum and due on June 9, 2018. The first note was funded in cash. With respect to second note CBP issued a note payable to the Company in the amount of $50,000 to offset second note. The funding of second note is subject to certain conditions. CBP is required to pay the principal amount of the note payable to the Company in cash and in full prior to executing any conversions under second note.

 

The CBP notes may be converted by CBP at any time into shares of Company’s common stock calculated at the time of conversion, except as set forth above, at a conversion price equal to 55% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the twenty (20) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares or the market price is below $0.25, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45%. If the Company fails to maintain its status as “DTC Eligible” for any reason, or, if the conversion price is equal to or lower than $0.01, then an additional 15% discount shall be factored into the conversion price until the CBP notes are no longer outstanding.

 

During the first six months, the CBP notes is in effect, the Company may redeem the CBP notes by paying to an amount equal to 135% of the face amount plus any accrued interest during the first 90 days after issuance and 150% of the face amount plus any accrued interest from day 91 through day 180 after issuance. The CBP Notes may not be prepaid after the six-month anniversary.

The first note was funded in cash. With respect to second note, Eagle issued a note payable to the Company in the amount of $50,000 to offset second note. The funding of second note is subject to certain conditions. Eagle is required to pay the principal amount of the note payable to the Company in cash and in full prior to executing any conversions under second note.

 

Eagle may convert the outstanding principal on the Eagle notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price per share equal to 55% of the lowest daily closing bid with a twenty (20) day look back immediately preceding and including the date of conversion.   In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45% instead of 55% while that “Chill” is in effect.

 

The Company has the right to repay the Eagle notes at any time during the first six months of the notes at a rate of 130% of the unpaid principal amount during the first 90 days, 135% of the unpaid principal amount between days 91 and 120, and 140% of the unpaid principal amount between days 121 and 180.  The Eagle Notes may not be prepaid after the 180th day.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $482 of accrued interest.

 

(E) On June 8, 2017, the Company closed a financing with JSJ Investments Inc. (“JSJ”), whereby the Company issued a convertible note payable dated June 7, 2017 in the aggregate principal amount of $50,000 with interest accruing at 8% per annum and is due on March 7, 2018.

 

JSJ may converted the note at any time into shares of Company’s common stock at a price equal a 45% discount to the lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock as reported on the OTCQB for the 20 prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. The Company may pay the JSJ Note in full, together with any and all accrued and unpaid interest, plus any applicable pre-payment premium at any time on or prior to the date which occurs 180 days after the issuance date hereof. Until the 90th day after the issuance date the Company may pay the principal at a cash redemption premium of 135%, in addition to outstanding interest, without the note holder’s consent. From the 91st day though day 120, the amount to be repaid is 140% and from day 121 through the 180th day, the amount to be repaid is 150%.

 

On June 29, 2017, the Company closed another financing with JSJ for $50,000 with the exact terms and the JSJ note describe above except the note is due on March 29, 2018.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $378 of accrued interest.

 

Due to the potential adjustment in the conversion price associated with some of the convertible notes payable described above based on the Company’s stock price, the Company has determined that the conversion feature is considered a derivative liability. The embedded conversion feature was initially calculated to be $2,477,333 which are recorded as a derivative liability as of the date of issuance. The derivative liability was first recorded as a debt discount to the convertible notes payable up to the face amount of the convertible notes payable of $960,132 with the excess of $1,517,201 being recorded as a derivative expense. The debt discount of $960,132 is being amortized over the terms of the convertible notes payable. The Company recognized interest expense of $50,213 during the six months ended June 30, 2017 related to the amortization of the debt discount. The debt discount at June 30, 2017 is $909,919.

 

Since the note payable to the Company as described in items (C) and (D) above were issued to the Company as payment for a second convertible notes payable, the Company has not presented these notes receivable as an asset, but as an offset to the convertible notes payable balance.

On or around March 18, 2016 the Company and Dr. Danny Rittman entered into an agreement intended to clarify the relationship between Dr. Rittman and the Company and the ownership of certain technology in connection with certain agreements previously entered into between Company and Dr. Rittman and with third parties. Specifically, the Company entered into that certain Territorial License Agreement with Hermes Roll LLC dated March 4, 2015, which such agreement was amended to expand the related territorial license to a worldwide license pursuant to that certain Amended and Restated Territorial License Agreement dated June 16, 2015 (the “Amended and Restated Territorial License Agreement”), and that certain Letter Agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) entered into between Dr. Rittman and the Company dated August 20, 2015. The aforementioned agreements were tied to the funding of the Company in the minimum amount of $5,000,000 (the “Required Funding”) and the assignment to the Company and/or ownership by the Company of all past, present and future technology in the form of intellectual property, including, but not limited to patents, trademarks, domains, applications, social media pages (e.g. Twitter, LinkedIn and landing pages) (collectively, the “IP”), which such IP was paid for exclusively by Dr. Rittman and/or his affiliated companies, was contingent upon the Company obtaining the Required Funding by no later than October 30, 2015 (the “Contingency”). Accordingly, it was agreed to by the parties that (i) all inventions, improvements and developments made or conceived by the Dr. Rittman, either solely or in collaboration with others pertaining to Company’s business, would be the property of the Company subject to the Contingency. In the event the Contingency was not met, the Letter Agreement would be cancelled and rendered null and void. The Company acknowledged that the Company did not meet the Contingency, technically resulting in the cancellation of the Letter Agreement and rendering the Letter Agreement null and void. Moreover, the Company failed to meet its obligations under the Amended and Restated Territorial License Agreement, including the further development of the consumer heuristic technology platform, thereby creating a vacuum in its development in all aspects, including the ability to obtain funding, resulting in the need for Dr. Rittman’s partners to perform the necessary development work related to the above agreements.

 

The original License Agreement will remain in place, while other agreements will be terminated and rendered null and void. Dr. Rittman will resign as an officer of the Company, but will remain as Director and technical consultant of the Company, and will accommodate the needs of the Company in return for compensation to be agreed by the parties. All intellectual property will remain in the possession of Dr. Rittman and his private partners, and the Company shall remain a licensee per the terms of the original Territorial License Agreement, and will develop the first product with Dr. Rittman and his partners.

 

The Company is the exclusive license holder for certain intellectual property relating to GopherInsight technology. The Company has assigned all its rights as they relate to the Guardian Patch to the LLC as consideration for the JV. Dr. Rittman’s partners have commenced development of the product via a private LLC that has been incorporated under the name “Guardian Patch LLC” (“LLC”). Certain private investors will provide all initial funding to the Company via the LLC for product development. The LLC will fund the development, and the Company will provide IT services via Dr. Rittman for a monthly fee. Dr. Rittman has signed an amendment employment agreement with the Company. As the Company is not a member of the LLC, the Company and the LLC have formed a Joint Venture (“JV”) for the purposes of developing and marketing the Patch. The LLC will be responsible for funding the development of the Patch. The Company will not need be required to invest funds in said JV. The Company responsibilities will be limited to the marketing of the product, where the marketing budget will be funded by the LLC. Moreover, the LLC has committed to provide the Company with working capital as needed. The Company has assigned and pledged to the LLC all its license derivative rights as they pertain to the Patch only. Dr. Rittman may be offered membership rights at some point in the future with the LLC, with which the Company is a JV partner, but is not equity member. The Company has agreed with the LLC that the same JV principles of the GPLLC for the patch will apply for the other two products (Epsilon and Puzpix) which will be vested under designated LLCs that will be incorporated by the LLC members. During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, 100% of the Company’s revenue was related to IT service provided to the LLC for Dr. Rittman services, in connection with the development of the Patch.

 

In March 2016, the Company and Dr. Danny Rittman, Co-Chairman, CTO and a shareholder, entered into an agreement intended to clarify the relationship between Dr. Rittman and the Company and the ownership of certain technology in connection with certain agreements previously entered into between Company and Dr. Rittman and with third parties. Prior to these agreements, the Company is the exclusive license holder for certain intellectual property relating to Hermes’ system and method for scheduling categorized deliverables, according to demand, at the customer’s location based on smartphone application and/or via the internet. As a result of these agreements, the Company shall remain an exclusive licensee per the terms of the original License Agreement and will develop the first products with Dr. Rittman and his partners.

 

On March 29, 2016, Gopher contributed all of its rights relating to its proprietary microchip that is within a sticky patch package (the “Patch”) to Guardian Patch, LLC (the “Guardian LLC”) in consideration of 50% of the profit generated by Guardian LLC (the “Joint Venture”). Guardian LLC is responsible for investing all needed funds for the purpose of developing the Patch and related products to the Patch. In addition, Guardian LLC is required to provide short term loans to Gopher on an as needed basis secured by Gopher’s economic interest in the Joint Venture. The Company will provide IT services to Guardian LLC for a monthly fee. Dr. Rittman has signed an amendment employment agreement with the Company.

On July 21, 2016 members of the Guardian Patch LLC, together with Dr. Rittman, incorporated Alpha EDA, LLC (“Alpha”). The members of the LLC appointed Dr. Rittman as the manager of Alpha. The Company, the LLC and Alpha have agreed that all Epsilon Rights, as well as Puzpix rights, will be assigned to Alpha. Alpha and the Company entered into a JV agreement similar to the Patch Joint Venture agreement (as described above), whereby Alpha will fund all of its operational and developmental needs (software development, support, marketing and administrative), and the profits of Alpha will be distributed equally to the two equal Joint venture partners, Guardian Patch LLC and the Company. Alpha will hold all intellectual property rights related to software. Currently, three products will be owned by Alpha – the Epsilon software, the Puzpix social game and the Guardian Pack application. The Company and its technology licensing partners, Guardian LLC and Alpha, are preparing to introduce said new products (Epsilon, Guardian Pack & PuzPix) to the market this year, and the Sphere during the second half of fiscal 2017. Certain problems caused by the need to miniaturize both the chip design and the battery caused a delay in the rollout from its planned launch during the first half of the year. The Epsilon product will be presented for time-based license agreements utilizing a designated website on top of customary distributing channels for the product. Epsilon is under confidential evaluation agreement with third party.

 

During 2016, the Company relocated its headquarters to 2500 Broadway, Suite F-125, Santa Monica, California. The Company paid approximately $5,000 per month in rent for this office space, and paid a $7,500 security deposit that is classified in our financial statements contained herein as a prepaid expense. The lease is being paid for by the Guardian LLC via reimbursement. The Company moved into smaller office space during the quarter, and its security deposit was adjusted downward to cover the smaller space in April 2016. The Company believes its current facilities will be adequate for the foreseeable future.

 

The Company has commenced development, and the Company has completed the Statement of Work (SOW) for the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) survey to deploy the Company’s Guardian Global Tracking Device within the continental US. The Company has also completed their transmitters/transceivers modules feasibility research. Although the Company can use open channels, and therefore is not required to comply with various FCC regulations relevant to the system, the Company has chosen to comply, and is complying with FCC regulations. The FCC regulates the limits of potentially harmful interference to licensed transmitters due to low power unlicensed transmitters. The Guardian Patch/Sphere system consists of advanced security protocols in order to maintain the global, private, fully-secured network. In addition, the Guardian Patch device needs to perform communication tasks across the globe providing breakthrough tracking features.  The Company and its technology licensing partner, Guardian LLC, successfully completed thorough research that involved security, performance and FCC regulations compliance. Based on this research, a set of particular frequencies was chosen to be used by Guardian LLC.  By the end of this year, the Company completed the design and construction of the Guardian Patch/Sphere circuit prototype device. The Company has completed the construction of 10 prototype units, and performed intensive testing program to be tested as a complete system in designated areas by the Company. On December 1, 2016, Guardian LLC issued Statement of Work for the Placement and Development of Guardian Sphere and its Base System. For this project, Guardian LLC has assembled a team of eight, including a Project Manager, CTO, digital and software engineers, a specialist algorithm mathematician and project leader. This team was assembled by Guardian LLC, and is based in the USA, Europe and Asia. Per the Joint Venture agreement, Guardian LLC is funding the SOW project through its sources, while the Company’s portion of the cost is $67,000 and due to the vendor on August 15, 2017.

SEC Matters

 

On July 29, 2016, the staff of the Atlanta Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” and the “Commission”) advised the Company in a telephone conversation, followed by a written “Wells” notice, that it is has made a preliminary determination to recommend that the Commission file an enforcement action against the Company alleging violations of Section 13(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 13a-11, 13a-13 and 12b-20 thereunder. A Wells Notice is neither a formal allegation of wrongdoing nor a finding that any violations of law have occurred. Rather, it provides the Company with an opportunity to respond to issues raised by the Commission and offer its perspective prior to any SEC decision to institute proceedings. These proceedings could result in the Company being subject to an injunction and cease and desist order from further violations of the securities laws as well as monetary penalties of disgorgement, pre-judgment interest and a civil penalty.  On September 20, 2016, the Company filed an amended and restated 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2014.  In February 2017, the SEC advised that it concluded its investigation and that it does not intend to recommend an enforcement action by the SEC against the Company. 

 

On June 12, 2017, the Company circulated a white paper titled “Guardian – Global Tracking Technology” which was filed with the SEC on form 8-k as Regulation FD Disclosure. The information contained in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Note 12 - Per Share Information

Loss per share

Basic loss per share of common stock is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding.  Diluted loss per share of common stock (“Diluted EPS”) is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock and dilutive common stock equivalents and convertible securities then outstanding. At June 30, 2017 and 2016, there were 76,157,622 and 102,353,717 of potentially dilutive post-split common stock equivalents outstanding, respectively. The potentially dilutive common stock equivalents at June 30, 2017 arise from (i) the issuance on December 7, 2011 of 45,000 Series B Preferred Shares which are convertible into 3,000 common shares, (ii) the issuance of 10,000 Series C Preferred Shares having a stated value of $100 per share, of which 700 shares remain unconverted, which remaining unconverted shares are convertible into 770 post-split common shares, given recent market prices, and notwithstanding a restriction against owning more than 4.99% of the Company’s stock, and (iii) the issuance of a note payable to GV Global which based on hypothetical conversion at June 30, 2016 would have converted into 4,037,741 post-split common shares, (iv) the issuance of 100,000 Series D Preferred Shares worth $120,000 to Vulcan, 34,000 of which have already been converted, the remainder (unconverted balance) of which given hypothetical conversion at June 30, 2017 would have converted to 66,000,000 post-split shares, and (v) the Waterford warrant on 93,750 shares. The potentially dilutive shares at June 30, 2017 also include the following shares contemplating the conversion of certain convertible notes issued in the first six months of 2017: (i) 4,261,900 shares from the issuance of a note to Guardian Patch LLC; (ii) 293,407 shares from the issuance of a note to Crown Bridge Partners; (iii) 293,407 shares from the issuance of the backend note to Crown Bridge Partners; (iv) 293,407 shares from the issuance of a note to Eagle Equities LLC; (v) 293,407 shares from the issuance of the backend note to Eagle Equities LLC; (vi) 294,523 shares from the issuance of a note to JSJ Investments, Inc., issued on or around June 7, 2017; and, (vii) 292,312 shares from the issuance of a note to JSJ Investments, Inc., issued on or around June 29, 2017.

The potentially dilutive common stock equivalents at June 30, 2016 arise from (i) the issuance on December 7, 2011 of 45,000 Series B Preferred Shares which are convertible into 3,000 common shares, (ii) the issuance of 10,000 Series C Preferred Shares having a stated value of $100 per share, of which 700 shares remain unconverted, which remaining unconverted shares are convertible into 770 post-split common shares, given recent market prices, and notwithstanding a restriction against owning more than 4.99% of the Company’s stock, (iii) the issuance of a Note I which based on hypothetical conversion at June 30, 2016 would have converted into 9,999,947 post-split common shares, and (iv) the issuance of 100,000 Series D Preferred Shares worth $120,000 to Vulcan, the remainder (unconverted balance)of which given hypothetical conversion at June 30, 2016 would have converted to 92,350,000 post-split shares. The computation of Diluted EPS does not assume exercise or conversion of securities that would have an anti-dilutive effect on the net loss per common share. Share amounts are shown in post-split amounts to facilitate comparison between the periods.  

 

Note 13 – Concentrations

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to a concentration of credit risk, consist principally of temporary cash investments.

 

There have been no losses in these accounts through June 30, 2017 and 2016.

 

Concentration of revenue and accounts payable as of June 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company has one customer, which counts 100% of its revenue. Per the terms of the JV with the LLC, the LLC has committed to fund all Company’s needs, as well as needs of the JV. As the LLC entered a Lock-Up Leak-Out agreement with the Company, the parties are in negotiations to reinstate it. Refusal of the LLC to provide the Company or the JV with that funding would represent a significant Credit Risk.

.

Note 14 - Subsequent Events

Management has evaluated events that occurred subsequent to the end of the reporting period shown herein:

 

The Patch PCT (Patent Cooptation treaty) was published July 13, 2017 as International Application Publication No. WO/2017/119947.

 

During June 2017, the Company entered into agreements and issued 4 notes in total to 3 investors. and the issuance of the Notes issuance were part of a funding plan where the 3 investors committed to fund up to $750,000 in tranches. Some or all of the investors defaulted on the second tranche, which has created a major liquidity and going concern issues that the Company trying to mitigate, but there is no assurance it will be successful. The Company is in intensive negotiations with Guardian LLC to reinstate funding Company overhead and expenses.

 

Effective August 15, 2017, Reko Holdings, LLC converted 6,000 shares of its Series D Preferred Stock into 6,000,000 restricted common shares.

General Overview

Gopher Protocol Inc. (the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”, “Gopher”, “Gopher Protocol” or “GOPH”) was incorporated on July 22, 2009 under the laws of the State of Nevada and relocated its headquarters to Santa Monica, California in 2016. Gopher is a development stage company that is creating innovative mobile microchip (ICs) and software technologies based on GopherInsight. The Company derived its revenues from the provision of IT services to Guardian Patch LLC, a related party (“Guardian LLC”).

 

GopherInsightis a patented real time, heuristic (self-learning/artificial intelligence) based mobile technology. GopherInsightchip technology, if successfully fully developed, will be able to be installed in mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) as well as stand-alone products. It is intended that GopherInsightsoftware applications will work in conjunction with GopherInsightmicrochips across mobile operating systems, providing computing power, advanced database management/sharing functionalities and more. The technology under development consists of a smart microchip, mobile application software and supporting software. The system contemplates the creation of a global network. Upon development, the Company believes that its microchip technologies may be installed within mobile devices or on SIM cards.

 

On March 29, 2016, the Company contributed all of its rights relating to its proprietary microchip that is within a sticky patch package (the “Patch”) to Guardian LLC in consideration of 50% of the profit generated by Guardian LLC and a commitment from Guardian LLC that it is responsible for investing all needed funds for the purpose of developing the Patch and related products to the Patch, as well as funding the working capital needs of the Company.

 

Results of Operations:

 

Fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016

A comparison of the statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 is as follows:

 

Revenues:

The following table summarizes our revenues for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

 

Three months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
Total revenues  $45,000   $45,000 

 

During the first quarter of 2017, Guardian Patch LLC, which funds the development of the Patch, was billed by the Company for IT services provided by Dr. Rittman for a monthly fee of $15,000. From April 1, 2016, and going forward, the Company billed Guardian Patch LLC $15,000 per month, whereas prior to that, the Company billed Guardian Patch LLC only $10,000 per month.

 

Revenue is derived entirely from one customer in both cases.

Operating expenses:

The following table summarizes our operating expenses for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

Three months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
General and administrative expenses  $260,608   $121,609 
Stock-based compensation  $26,500   $246,981 
Marketing expenses  $61,366   $170,913 
Accounting expenses  $14,600   $6,575 
Patent fees  $1,321   $780 
Total operating expenses  $364,395   $546,858 

 

In the current period, general and administrative costs increased, mainly due to a lower reliance on using stock to fund operating costs, caused by the decline in the stock price from last year. Other expenses went down significantly, especially marketing costs and stock-based compensation costs, leading to significantly lower operating costs in the current period compared to the three months ending in June 2016. Marketing costs declined compared to the prior period as the priority shifted to miniaturizing both the chip design and the battery, rather than marketing the product in the current period. Stock-based compensation costs have declined because the management team has been relying less on issuing stock for services, due to the greater dilution caused by our stock price, which is significantly lower than it was last year.

 

Other income (expense):

The following table summarizes our other income (expense) for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

 

Three months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
Amortization of debt discount  $(50,213)  $(8,268)
Change in fair market value of derivative liability  $496,037   $0 
Derivative expense  $(1,517,201)  $0 
Interest (expense)  $(1,613)  $(1,129)
Total other income (expense)  $(1,072,990)  $(9,397)

 

For the three months ended at June 30, 2017, the interest expense increased due to the additional notes on the balance sheet in the current period. The amortization of the debt discount, derivative expense, and change in fair market value of the derivative liability are not comparable between the periods.

 

Year to date ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016

A comparison of the statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 is as follows:

 

Revenues:

The following table summarizes our revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

 

Six months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
Total revenues  $90,000   $75,000 

 

During the first quarter of 2017, Guardian Patch LLC, which funds the development of the Patch, was billed by the Company for IT services provided by Dr. Rittman for a monthly fee of $15,000. From April 1, 2016, and going forward, the Company billed Guardian Patch LLC $15,000 per month, whereas prior to that, the Company billed Guardian Patch LLC only $10,000 per month.

Operating expenses:

The following table summarizes our operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

 

Six months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
General and administrative expenses  $429,577   $193,826 
Stock-based compensation  $26,500   $246,981 
Marketing expenses  $117,914   $182,017 
Accounting expenses  $14,600   $29,300 
Patent fees  $2,981   $16,866 
Total operating expenses  $591,572   $668,990 

 

In the year to date period, general and administrative costs increased, mainly due to a lower reliance on using stock to fund operating costs, caused by the decline in the stock price from last year. Other expenses went down significantly, especially marketing costs and stock-based compensation costs, leading to significantly lower operating costs in the current period compared to the six months ending in June 2016. Marketing costs declined compared to the prior period as the priority shifted to miniaturizing both the chip design and the battery, rather than marketing the product in the current period. Stock-based compensation costs have declined because the management team has been relying less on issuing stock for services, due to the greater dilution caused by our stock price, which is significantly lower than it was last year.

 

Other income (expense):

The following table summarizes our other income (expense) for the year to date period ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

 

Six months ended June 30,  2017   2016 
Amortization of debt discount  $(50,213)  $(17,651)
Change in fair market value of derivative liability  $496,037   $0 
Derivative expense  $(1,517,201)  $0 
Interest (expense)  $(2,618)  $(1,727)
Total other income (expense)  $(1,073,995)  $(19,378)

 

For the six months ended at June 30, 2017, the interest expense increased due to the additional notes on the balance sheet in the current period. The amortization of the debt discount, derivative expense, and change in fair market value of the derivative liability are not comparable between the periods.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash was $50,046 and $2,471 for the periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016. Cash flows used by operations in the current fiscal year were $255,532, compared to $18,580 used by operating activities in fiscal 2016. Certain items are not comparable between the periods, including shares issued for services and a warrant issued for services in June 2016, and the change in fair market value of the derivative liability from the notes raised in May and June 2017 of nearly $500,000, and a derivative expense in the first six months of 2017 of $1,517,201. Working capital worsened in the current period compared to the prior period, with an increase in notes receivable of over $100,000 and a significant decrease in accounts payable compared to the six months ended in June 2016. For the period ended June 30, 2017, $200,000 was contributed in cash by borrowings under notes payable. It is important to note that reclassing the payable to Guardian Patch LLC to a note decreased accounts payable significantly from what it would have been had that change not occurred. This reclassification of the payable to a convertible note payable is a non-cash item; the note of $679,773, which includes accrued interest, was not funded by Guardian LLC during the period.

 

The Company sustained net losses of $1,575,567 in the first six months of 2017, and our operating activities used $255,532. The Company had a working capital deficit of $347,002, stockholders’ deficit of $2,326,882, and accumulated deficit of $5,669,939 at June 30, 2017. This raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is dependent upon its ability to generate revenues and its ability to continue receiving investment capital and loans from third parties to sustain its current level of operations. No assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in these efforts. Per the Joint Venture agreement, Guardian LLC has committed to provide the Company with all its working capital needs.

 

In lieu of entering series of short terms notes with third parties, Guardian LLC entered into a lock-up and leakage agreement. Certain third parties defaulted on their commitment to the Company for funding. The Company entered a negotiation with Guardian LLC to replace these defaulted investors. There is no guarantee that the LLC will agree to continue and replaces said investors, which raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

26

 

 

We plan to raise working capital that will allow us to conduct our business for the next 12 months. There is no guarantee regarding our ability to raise that capital. We expect to use the proceeds to fund our short-term capital requirements including paying administrative expenses associated with maintaining our public company’s filings for the next 12 months. In order to implement our business plan and pay various administrative expenses on a minimal basis for the next 12 months, we expect that we will need approximately $1,200,000, based on our expectation of monthly expenses of approximately $100,000. The Company expects that its operating results will fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter in the future, and will depend on a number of factors including the state of the worldwide economy and financial markets, which are outside the Company’s control. Guardian Patch, LLC, the Company’s JV partner, has committed to support the Company’s working capital needs, by providing the Company short-terms loans. The Company may also pursue capital through the issuance of high-yield debt that will likely be convertible into equity, at either a fixed or a variable conversion rate. Our financing plans and the exact type of debt that we seek will largely be contingent on the results of our pre-sales campaign for our first consumer product.

(A) On January 22, 2015, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement with Stanley Hills, the original holder (the “Holder”) of the PTPI Note pursuant to which PTPI Note exchanged $75,273 in debt into a 10% Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of $75,273 (the “Note”). The PTPI Note matures January 21, 2017 (the “Maturity Date”) and interest associated with the Note I Note is 10% per annum, which is payable on the Maturity Date. The PTPI Note is convertible into shares of common stock of the Company, at the option of Note I, at a fixed conversion price of $0.00752734.

 

The Holder has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the PTPI Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by it in the aggregate and its affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The PTPI Note was issued in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) under the Securities Act of 1933. The Holder is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933. In addition, on March 2, 2015, the Company and the Holder amended that certain 10% Convertible Debenture (the “PTPI Note I Debenture”) which debt underlying the PTPI Note I Debenture was initially incurred on October 6, 2009 and exchanged for the Note I Debenture on January 19, 2014. The parties agreed that the conversion price in the PTPI Note I Debenture would not be impacted by the 1:1,000 stock split implemented by the Company on February 24, 2015 and will remain $0.0075273.

 

28

 

 

The Company is under default per the terms of the PTPI Note, as at maturity in January 2017, the Company did not have sufficient free cash to pay off the note. The Company is in negotiations with the Holder in good faith to resolve the situation. The Company cannot predict the result of such negotiations. The current note balance is $30,393, which includes $14,870 of accrued interest. At December 31, 2016, the Company had only this note outstanding as well. The balance at that time was $53,852, which included accrued interest of $13,112, and was net of debt discount.

Guardian LLC (the “Note Holder”) understands that the Company may be seeking additional capital or funding and believes that the lock-up and leak-out restrictions and provisions, as further described herein, will improve the Company’s prospects for obtaining additional financing and thus improving the overall financial condition of the Company. As such on or around June 26, 2017 the Company and the Note Holder entered into a lock-up and leak-out:

 

1.Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Note Holder agrees that for a period of nine (9) months from the Effective Date of this Agreement (the “Lock-Up Period”), the Note Holder shall not convert the Note into Common Stock for safe keeping or, directly or indirectly, sell, offer to sell, contract to sell, assign, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise transfer, or enter into any contract, option or other arrangement or understanding with respect to the sale, assignment, pledge or other disposition of (each a “Transfer”) any beneficial rights with respect to the Note.
2.Leak-Out Provisions.     Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Note Holder agrees that for a period beginning immediately upon the end of the Lock-Up Period and ending fifteen (15) months from the Effective Date of this Agreement (the “Leak-Out Period”), the Note Holder shall have the right to sell the lessor of (i) five (5%) percent of the previous day’s traded volume of the Company’s Common Stock, or (ii) Five Thousand (5,000) shares of the Common Stock on a per daily basis.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $14,870 of accrued interest.

 

(B) On May 23, 2017, the Company entered into a conversion agreement with Guardian Patch I LLC (“Guardian”) pursuant to which the parties agreed to convert the amounts provided by Guardian to the Company, previously recorded in accounts payable and accrued expenses, into a convertible note payable in the amount of $660,132. 

 

The note bears interest at 6%, matures May 30, 2019 and is convertible into the Company’s common stock, at Guardian’s option, at a conversion price equal to 50% of the lowest closing price for the common stock on the principal market during the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the conversion date, which, in no event, will be less than $0.01 per share. Guardian has agreed to restrict their ability to convert the note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.9% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $19,641 of accrued interest.

 

(C) On June 9, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (“CBP”), providing for the purchase of two convertible notes payable in the aggregate amount of $100,000 with the first note being in the amount of $50,000 and the second note being in the amount of $50,000 each accruing interest at 8% per annum and due on June 9, 2018. The first note was funded in cash. With respect to second note CBP issued a note payable to the Company in the amount of $50,000 to offset second note. The funding of second note is subject to certain conditions. CBP is required to pay the principal amount of the note payable to the Company in cash and in full prior to executing any conversions under second note.

 

The CBP notes may be converted by CBP at any time into shares of Company’s common stock calculated at the time of conversion, except as set forth above, at a conversion price equal to 55% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the common stock may be traded in the future, for the twenty (20) prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares or the market price is below $0.25, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45%. If the Company fails to maintain its status as “DTC Eligible” for any reason, or, if the conversion price is equal to or lower than $0.01, then an additional 15% discount shall be factored into the conversion price until the CBP notes are no longer outstanding.

 

During the first six months, the CBP notes is in effect, the Company may redeem the CBP notes by paying to an amount equal to 135% of the face amount plus any accrued interest during the first 90 days after issuance and 150% of the face amount plus any accrued interest from day 91 through day 180 after issuance. The CBP Notes may not be prepaid after the six-month anniversary.

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $482 of accrued interest.

 

(D) On June 8, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with Eagle Equities, LLC (“Eagle”), providing for the purchase of two convertible notes payable in the aggregate amount of $100,000 with the first note being in the amount of $50,000 and the second note being in the amount of $50,000 each accruing interest at 8% per annum and due on June 8, 2018. The first note was funded in cash. With respect to second note, Eagle issued a note payable to the Company in the amount of $50,000 to offset second note. The funding of second note is subject to certain conditions. Eagle is required to pay the principal amount of the note payable to the Company in cash and in full prior to executing any conversions under second note.

 

Eagle may convert the outstanding principal on the Eagle notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price per share equal to 55% of the lowest daily closing bid with a twenty (20) day look back immediately preceding and including the date of conversion.   In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45% instead of 55% while that “Chill” is in effect.

 

The Company has the right to repay the Eagle notes at any time during the first six months of the notes at a rate of 130% of the unpaid principal amount during the first 90 days, 135% of the unpaid principal amount between days 91 and 120, and 140% of the unpaid principal amount between days 121 and 180.  The Eagle Notes may not be prepaid after the 180th day.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $482 of accrued interest.

 

(E) On June 8, 2017, the Company closed a financing with JSJ Investments Inc. (“JSJ”), whereby the Company issued a convertible note payable dated June 7, 2017 in the aggregate principal amount of $50,000 with interest accruing at 8% per annum and is due on March 7, 2018.

 

JSJ may converted the note at any time into shares of Company’s common stock at a price equal a 45% discount to the lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock as reported on the OTCQB for the 20 prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. The Company may pay the JSJ Note in full, together with any and all accrued and unpaid interest, plus any applicable pre-payment premium at any time on or prior to the date which occurs 180 days after the issuance date hereof. Until the 90th day after the issuance date the Company may pay the principal at a cash redemption premium of 135%, in addition to outstanding interest, without the note holder’s consent. From the 91st day though day 120, the amount to be repaid is 140% and from day 121 through the 180th day, the amount to be repaid is 150%.

 

On June 29, 2017, the Company closed another financing with JSJ for $50,000 with the exact terms and the JSJ note describe above except the note is due on March 29, 2018.

 

At June 30, 2017, the outstanding balance included $378 of accrued interest.

 

Due to the potential adjustment in the conversion price associated with some of the convertible notes payable described above based on the Company’s stock price, the Company has determined that the conversion feature is considered a derivative liability. The embedded conversion feature was initially calculated to be $2,477,333 which are recorded as a derivative liability as of the date of issuance. The derivative liability was first recorded as a debt discount to the convertible notes payable up to the face amount of the convertible notes payable of $960,132 with the excess of $1,517,201 being recorded as a financing cost. The debt discount of $960,132 is being amortized over the terms of the convertible notes payable. The Company recognized interest expense of $50,213 during the six months ended June 30, 2017 related to the amortization of the debt discount.

 

Since the note payable to the Company as described in items (C) and (D) above were issued to the Company as payment for a second convertible notes payable, the Company has not presented these notes receivable as an asset, but as an offset to the convertible notes payable balance.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements  

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Use of Estimates

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of our financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires us to make certain estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements, the reported amounts and classification of revenues and expenses during the periods presented, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis and material changes in these estimates or assumptions could occur in the future. Changes in estimates are recorded on the period in which they become known. We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances and at that time, 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 materially from these estimates if past experience or other assumptions do not turn out to be substantially accurate.

 

We believe that the accounting policies described below are critical to understanding our business, results of operations, and financial condition because they involve significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements. An accounting is deemed to be critical if it requires a judgment or accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain, and if different estimates that could have been used, or if changes in the accounting estimates that are reasonably likely to occur periodically, could materially impact our financial statements. Other significant accounting policies, primarily those with lower levels of uncertainty than those discussed below, are also critical to understanding our financial statements. The notes to our financial statements contain additional information related to our accounting policies and should be read in conjunction with this discussion.

 

Presentation of Financial Statements

The accompanying financial statements include the accounts of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognized revenue on arrangements in accordance with FASB Codification Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition” (“ASC Topic 605”). Under ASC Topic 605, revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed and determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured. We had revenue of $45,000 and $45,000 for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

 

During the quarter ended June 30, 2017, 100% of the Company’s revenue was related to IT service provided to the LLC for Dr. Rittman services, in connection with the development of the Company’s GopherInsight™ technology.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company evaluates all of its agreements to determine if such instruments have derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a weighted average Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date. As of June 30, 2017, the Company’s only derivative financial instrument was an embedded conversion feature associated with convertible notes payable due to certain provisions that allow for a change in the conversion price based on a percentage of the Company’s stock price at the date of conversion.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company applies the provisions of ASC 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” ASC 820-10 defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

 

For certain financial instruments, the carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash and current liabilities, including convertible notes payable, each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.

 

The Company uses Level 2 inputs for its valuation methodology for derivative liabilities as their fair values were determined by using the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model based on various assumptions. The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect fair value at each period end, with any increase or decrease in the fair value being recorded in results of operations as adjustments to fair value of derivatives.

 

32

 

 

At June 30, 2017, the Company identified the following liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value:

 

   Fair Value   Fair Value Measurements at 
   As of   June 30, 2017

Total  $1,981,296   $   $1,981,296   $ 

 

The Company did not identify any other non-recurring assets and liabilities that are required to be presented in the consolidated balance sheets at fair value in accordance with ASC 815.

 

Dividends

The Company has not yet adopted any policy regarding payment of dividends.  No cash dividends have been paid or declared since the Date of Inception.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a Smaller Reporting Company, the Company is not required to include the disclosure under this Item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the end of the applicable period to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.


As a smaller reporting company, without a viable business and revenues, the Company does not have the resources to install a dedicated staff with deep expertise in all facets of SEC disclosure and GAAP compliance. As is the case with many smaller reporting companies, the Company will continue to consult with its external auditors and attorneys as it relates to new accounting principles and changes to SEC disclosure requirements. The Company has found that this approach worked well in the past and believes it to be the most cost effective solution available for the foreseeable future. The Company will conduct a review of existing sign-off and review procedures as well as document control protocols for critical accounting spreadsheets. The Company will also increase management’s review of key financial documents and records.

 

33

 

 

As a smaller reporting company, the Company does not have the resources to fund sufficient staff to ensure a complete segregation of responsibilities within the accounting function. However, Company management does review, and will increase the review of, financial statements on a monthly basis, and the Company’s external auditor conducts reviews on a quarterly basis. These actions, in addition to the improvements identified above, will minimize any risk of a potential material misstatement occurring.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Legal Proceedings

From time to time, the Company may be involved in various litigation matters, which arise in the ordinary course of business.  There is currently no litigation that management believes will have a material impact on the financial position of the Company.

 

On August 26, 2015, the Company finalized a consulting agreement that it entered into on August 11, 2015 with Michael Korsunsky (“Consultant”) pursuant to which Consultant was engaged by the Company to (i) provide introductions to strategic business alliances, (ii) advise on exposure and risk in the operation of smart phone applications and (iii) advise on market fluctuations within the different categories of the smart phone application delivery services sector, in consideration of 100,000 restricted shares of common stock of the Company, which shares were issued on or around August 26, 2015. On or around November 17, 2016, the Company filed a complaint against Consultant in Superior Court of the State of California, County of Riverside, for Breach of Contract and Breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing. The Consultant been served, surrender his certificate but to date has not filed a defense.

 

Warrants Liability

On June 10, 2016, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Waterford Group LLC (“Waterford”) pursuant to which the Company engaged Waterford to provide sales and marketing consulting and advisory services to the Company in consideration of 100,000 shares of restricted common stock of the Company (the “Shares”) and a common stock purchase warrant (the “Warrant”) to acquire 750,000 shares of restricted common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $2.25 per share for a period of five (5) years. 50,000 of the Shares were issued to Waterford upon the execution of the Agreement. The Warrant vests on a quarterly basis in eight (8) equal quarterly installments each in the amount of 93,750 shares each quarter during the term of the Agreement. The first quarterly installment vested upon the execution of the Agreement and covers Q2 2016 and each subsequent quarterly installment vests each quarter thereafter. The warrant has been recorded as adjusting equity during this quarter. The Company believes that this agreement is in default, as the counterparty failed to perform or provide any services under the agreement. As such, the Company put Waterford on notice in writing during in the third fiscal quarter, that the Company did not issue shares or warrants during the third or fourth fiscal quarters, and does not intend to issue those items as it believes that Waterford is in default under its agreement.

 

On or around January 23, 2017, the Company filed a complaint against Waterford and the Company’s Transfer Agent, in Superior Court of the State of California, County of Riverside. On February 1, 2017, the Company obtained a temporary restraining order that prohibits Waterford from (x) lifting the restricted legend from the 50,000 shares that it received in connection with signing the Agreement; (y) selling the 50,000 shares to another party; and, (z) from exercising the warrant on 93,750 shares that was issued and vested upon the execution of the Agreement. As ordered by the court, on February 9, 2016, the Company deposited a Corporate Surety Bond in the amount of $42,875 to secure the temporary restraining order.

 

On or around February 27, 2017, the Company was issued a stay of the temporary restraining order barring its transfer agent from providing shares in connection with the exercise of the first Waterford warrant on 93,750 shares that was provided to Waterford in connection with the execution of the engagement letter that was executed by the parties on or around June 10, 2016.

 

On or around April 10, 2017, the Company was billed by its transfer agent (“TA”) for approximately $11,500 for legal fees (“TA Charges”) in connection with a lawsuit brought by one of the Company’s shareholders against the TA. The Company is not a named party in this litigation. The Company disputes the TA Charges, and as such did not record it in its books. The Company’s position is that the TA Charges are not covered under the indemnification section of the Company’s agreement with its TA.

SEC Matters

 

On July 29, 2016, the staff of the Atlanta Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” and the “Commission”) advised the Company in a telephone conversation, followed by a written “Wells” notice, that it is has made a preliminary determination to recommend that the Commission file an enforcement action against the Company alleging violations of Section 13(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 13a-11, 13a-13 and 12b-20 thereunder. A Wells Notice is neither a formal allegation of wrongdoing nor a finding that any violations of law have occurred. Rather, it provides the Company with an opportunity to respond to issues raised by the Commission and offer its perspective prior to any SEC decision to institute proceedings. These proceedings could result in the Company being subject to an injunction and cease and desist order from further violations of the securities laws as well as monetary penalties of disgorgement, pre-judgment interest and a civil penalty.  On September 20, 2016, the Company filed an amended and restated 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2014.  In February 2017, the SEC advised that it concluded its investigation and that it does not intend to recommend an enforcement action by the SEC against the Company. 

 

On June 12, 2017, the Company circulated a white paper titled “Guardian – Global Tracking Technology” which was filed with the SEC on form 8-k as Regulation FD Disclosure. The information contained in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this item.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

On March 29, 2016, Gopher Protocol Inc. (the “Company”) contributed all of its rights relating to its proprietary microchip that is within a sticky patch package (the “Patch”) to Guardian Patch LLC (“Guardian LLC”) in consideration of 50% of the profit generated by Guardian LLC and a commitment from Guardian LLC that it is responsible for investing all needed funds for the purpose of developing the Patch and related products to the Patch. Since April 2016, Guardian also provided loans to the Company for the Company’s working capital purposes, outside of its commitment to develop the Patch, in the aggregate amount of $660,131.80 (the “Loans”). On May 23, 2017, the Company entered into a Conversion Agreement with Guardian LLC pursuant to which the parties agreed to convert the Loans provided by Guardian LLC to the Company into a Convertible Promissory Note in the amount of $660,131.80 (the “Note”). The Note bears interest at 6%, matures May 30, 2019 and is convertible into the Company’s common stock, at Guardian LLC’s option, at a conversion price equal to 50% of the lowest closing price for the common stock on the principal market during the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the conversion date, which, in no event, will be less than $0.01 per share. Guardian LLC has agreed to restrict their ability to convert the Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.9% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

On June 9, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“CROWN SPA”) with Crown Bridge Partners, LLC (“CBP”), providing for the purchase of two Convertible Redeemable Notes in the aggregate principal amount of $100,000 (the “CBP Notes”), with the first note being in the amount of $50,000 (“CBP First Note”) and the second note being in the amount of $50,000 (“CBP Back End Note” and with the CBP First Note, the “CBP Notes”), each with a 8% original issue discount. CBP First Note was funded, with the Company receiving $42,500, net of the 10% original issue discount and legal fees. With respect to CBP Back End Note, also with a 10% original issue discount, CBP issued a note to the Company in the amount of $50,000 to offset CBP Back End Note, secured by CBP Back End Note (“Secured Note”). The funding of CBP Back End Note is subject to certain conditions as described in CBP Back End Note. CBP is required to pay the principal amount of the Secured Note in cash and in full prior to executing any conversions under CBP Back End Note. The CBP Notes may be converted by CBP at any time into shares of Company’s common stock calculated at the time of conversion, except for CBP Back End Note, which requires full payment of the Secured Note by CBP before conversions may be made, at a conversion price equal to 55% of the average of the three lowest trading prices of the Common Stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau OTC Markets which the Company’s shares are traded or any exchange upon which the Common Stock may be traded in the future (“Exchange”), for the twenty (20) prior trading days including the day upon which a Notice of Conversion is received by the Company. In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares or the market price is below $0.25, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45%. If the Company fails to maintain its status as “DTC Eligible” for any reason, or, if the Variable Conversion Price is equal to or lower than $0.01, then an additional fifteen percent (15%) discount shall be factored into the Variable Conversion Price until the CBP Notes are no longer outstanding. In no event shall the CBP be allowed to effect a conversion if such conversion, along with all other shares of Company common stock beneficially owned by CBP and its affiliates would exceed 4.9% of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the Company. The CBP Notes bear an interest rate of 8%, and are due and payable one year from issuance. Interest shall be paid by the Company in Common Stock (“Interest Shares”). Holder may, at any time, send in a Notice of Conversion to the Company for Interest Shares. The dollar amount converted into Interest Shares shall be all or a portion of the accrued interest calculated on the unpaid principal balance of this Note to the date of such notice. The Secured Note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum is payable no later than May 8, 2018, unless the Company does not meet the “current information requirements” required under Rule 144 of the Securities Act, in which case CBP may declare the CBP Back End Note to be in Default (as defined in that note) and cross cancel its payment obligations under the Secured Note as well as the Company’s payment obligations under CBP Back End Note. During the first six months, the CBP Notes is in effect, the Company may redeem the CBP Notes by paying to an amount equal to 135% of the face amount plus any accrued interest during the first 90 days after issuance and 150% of the face amount plus any accrued interest from day 91 through day 180 after issuance. The CBP Notes may not be prepaid after the six-month anniversary. The CROWN SPA and CBP Notes contain certain representations, warranties, covenants and events of default. In the event of default, at the option of CBP and in CBP’s sole discretion, CBP may consider the Notes immediately due and payable. Until the CBP Notes are paid off or converted, CBP will hold a right of first refusal on any financing.

 

On June 8, 2017, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with Eagle Equities, LLC, an accredited investor (“Eagle Equities”), pursuant to which the Company issued Eagle Equities two convertible notes.  The first note, due June 8, 2018 in the principal amount of $50,000 (“Eagle Equities Note 1”), was issued in exchange for $50,000 in cash.  The second note, due June 8, 2018 in the principal amount of $50,000 (“Eagle Equities Note 2” and, together with Eagle Equities Note 1, the “Eagle Equities Notes”), was issued in exchange for a full-recourse, collateralized promissory note from Eagle Equities in the amount of $50,000 (“Eagle Equities Payment Note”).  The Eagle Equities Payment Note is due on February 8, 2018, unless we do not meet the current public information requirement pursuant to Rule 144, in which case both Eagle Equities Note 2 and the Eagle Equities Payment Note may be cancelled.  The Eagle Equities Payment Note is secured by the Eagle Equities Note 1.

 

Interest on the Eagle Equities Notes accrues at the rate of 8% per annum.  We are not required to make any payments on the Eagle Notes until maturity.  We have the right to repay the Eagle Notes at any time during the first six months of the notes at a rate of 130% of the unpaid principal amount during the first 90 days, 135% of the unpaid principal amount between days 91 and 120, and 140% of the unpaid principal amount between days 121 and 180.  The Eagle Notes may not be prepaid after the 180th day. Eagle Equities may convert the outstanding principal on the Eagle Notes into shares of our common stock at the conversion price per share equal to 55% of the lowest daily closing bid with a 20 day look back immediately preceding and including the date of conversion.  In the event the Company experiences a DTC “Chill” on its shares, the conversion price shall be decreased to 45% instead of 55% while that “Chill” is in effect. In no event shall Eagle Equities be allowed to effect a conversion if such conversion, along with all other shares of Company common stock beneficially owned by Eagle Equities and its affiliates would exceed 4.9% of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the Company.

(“JSJ”), whereby the Company issued a Convertible Promissory Note dated June 7, 2017 in the aggregate principal amount of $50,000 (the “JSJ Note”). The JSJ Note has been funded, with the Company receiving net proceeds of $45,000 (net of original issue discount). The JSJ Note bears an interest rate of 12%, which is payable in the Company’s common stock (“Interest Shares”) based on the Conversion Formula (as defined below), and is due and payable before or on March 7, 2018. The JSJ Note may be converted by JSJ at any time into shares of Company’s common stock at a price equal a 45% discount to the lowest trading prices of the Company’s common stock as reported on the OTCQB for the 20 prior trading days including the day upon which a notice of conversion is received by the Company or its transfer agent. The Company may pay the JSJ Note in full, together with any and all accrued and unpaid interest, plus any applicable pre-payment premium at any time on or prior to the date which occurs 180 days after the issuance date hereof (the “Prepayment Date”). Until the 90th day after the issuance date the Company may pay the principal at a cash redemption premium of 135%, in addition to outstanding interest, without the Holder’s consent. From the 91st day though day 120, the amount to be repaid is 140% and from day 121 through the Prepayment Date, the amount to be repaid is 150%. In no event shall JSJ be allowed to effect a conversion if such conversion, along with all other shares of Company common stock beneficially owned by JSJ and its affiliates would exceed 4.9% of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the Company. The notes are a long-term debt obligation that is material to the Company. The notes may be prepaid in accordance with the terms set forth therein.
