PAYMENT DATA SYSTEMS, INC.
NOTES TO INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
Note 1. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Payment Data Systems, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) have been prepared without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature considered necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows for such periods. The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 6, 2017. Results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim periods or the full fiscal year.

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

Revenue Recognition: Revenue consists primarily of fees generated through the electronic processing of payment transactions and related services, and is recognized as revenue during the period the transactions are processed or when the related services are performed. Merchants may be charged for these processing services at a bundled rate based on a percentage of the dollar amount of each transaction and, in some instances, additional fees are charged for each transaction. Certain merchant customers are charged a flat fee per transaction, while others may also be charged miscellaneous fees, including fees for chargebacks or returns, monthly minimums, and other miscellaneous services. Revenues derived from electronic processing of credit, debit, and prepaid card transactions that are authorized and captured through third-party networks are reported gross of amounts paid to sponsor banks as well as interchange and assessments paid to credit card associations (Visa, MasterCard and Discover). Revenue also includes any up-front fees for the work involved in implementing the basic functionality required to provide electronic payment processing services to a customer. Revenue from such implementation fees is recognized over the term of the related service contract. Sales taxes billed are reported directly as a liability to the taxing authority, and are not included in revenue.
Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents includes cash and other money market instruments. The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents.
Allowance for Estimated Losses: The Company maintains an allowance for estimated doubtful accounts resulting from the inability or failure of the Company’s customers to make required payments. The Company determines the allowance for estimated doubtful account losses based on an account-by-account review, taking into consideration such factors as the age of the outstanding balance, historical pattern of collections and financial condition of the customer. Past losses incurred by the Company due to bad debts have been within its expectations. If the financial conditions of the Company’s customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make contractual payments, additional allowances might be required. Estimates for doubtful account losses are variable based on the volume of transactions processed and could increase or decrease accordingly. At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company’s allowance for estimated doubtful accounts was $61,558 and $26,556, respectively.
Accounting for Internal Use Software: The Company capitalizes the costs associated with software being developed or obtained for internal use when both the preliminary project stage is completed and it is probable that computer software being developed will be completed and placed-in service. Capitalized costs include only (i) external direct costs of materials and services consumed in developing or obtaining internal-use software, (ii) payroll and other related costs for employees who are directly associated with and who devote time to the internal-use software project, and (iii) interest costs incurred, when material, while developing internal-use software. The Company ceases capitalization of such costs no later than the point at which the project is substantially complete and ready for its intended purpose. In the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company capitalized $243,039 of such costs.
Valuation of Long-Lived and Intangible Assets: The Company assesses the impairment of long-lived and intangible assets periodically, or at least annually, and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. Factors considered important, which could trigger an impairment review, include the following: significant under performance relative to historical or projected future cash flows; significant changes in the manner of use of the assets or the strategy of the overall business; and significant negative industry trends. When management determines that the carrying value of long-lived and intangible assets may not be recoverable, impairment is measured as the excess of the assets’ carrying value over the estimated fair value. No impairment losses were recorded in 2016 or during the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

4



Management is not aware of any impairment changes that may currently be required; however, the Company cannot predict the occurrence of events that might adversely affect the reported values in the future.
 
Reserve for Processing Losses: If, due to insolvency or bankruptcy of one of the Company’s merchant customers, or for any other reason, the Company is not able to collect amounts from its credit card, ACH or prepaid customers that have been properly "charged back" by the customer, or if a prepaid cardholder incurs a negative balance, the Company must bear the credit risk for the full amount of the transaction. The Company may require cash deposits and other types of collateral from certain merchants to minimize any such risk. In addition, the Company utilizes a number of systems and procedures to manage merchant risk. ACH, prepaid and credit card merchant processing loss reserves are primarily determined by performing a historical analysis of the Company’s loss experience and considering other factors that could affect that experience in the future, such as the types of transactions processed and nature of the merchant relationship with its consumers and the Company’s relationship with the Company’s prepaid card holders. This reserve amount is subject to the risk that actual losses may be greater than the Company’s estimates. The Company has not incurred any significant processing losses to date. Estimates for processing losses are variable based on the volume of transactions processed and could increase or decrease accordingly. At September 30, 2017, the Company’s reserve for processing losses was $172,832 and was unchanged from December 31, 2016.
 
New Accounting Pronouncement: In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued accounting standards update,  ASU 2014-09“Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)"  and a subsequent amendment to the standard in March 2016,  ASU 2016-08 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers, Principal versus Agent Consideration (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net)." The original standard provides guidance on recognizing revenue, including a five step model to determine when revenue recognition is appropriate. The standard requires that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The amendment to the standard clarifies implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. Adoption of the new standards is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption not permitted. The Company is currently reviewing gross versus net reporting pronouncements and evaluating the potential impact that the adoption of this standard will have on its financial position, results of operations, and related disclosures, and will adopt the provisions of this new standard in the first quarter of 2018.
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued, “Leases (Topic 842),” which is intended to increase the transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. A lessee will be required to recognize on the balance sheet an asset (right to use) and a liability (lease obligation) for leases with terms of more than 12 months. Accounting by lessors will remain largely unchanged from current U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The new standard is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those years, with early adoption permitted. Management does not expect that adopting this standard will have a significant impact on its financial statements and related disclosures.

Note 2.  Acquisition of Singular Payments, LLC.

On September 1, 2017, the Company entered into a membership interest purchase agreement with Singular Payments, LLC (“Singular”), a Florida limited liability company in the business of credit card processing, pursuant to which the Company agreed to purchase all of the membership interest in Singular Payments, LLC. The aggregate purchase was $5,000,000 and consisted of a cash payment of $1,500,000 at closing, minus the balance on the outstanding note receivable of $600,000 and subject to adjustment based on net working capital, and $3,500,000 in shares of common stock, or 1,515,152 shares of the Company's common stock, $0.001 par value per share, valued at $2.31 per share. Such shares are unregistered and subject to a lock-up agreement of 24 months.

The final number of shares issued, and the related value per each such share, was determined using the volume-weighted average daily closing price for the shares of common stock for the 5 business days immediately preceding September 1, 2017, or $2.31

The purchase price was allocated to the net assets acquired based upon their estimated fair values as follows:

The unaudited proforma results including the effects of the Singular Payments acquisition as if it had been consummated on January 1, 2016 will be included in a Form 8-K/A to be filed on or before November 17, 2017.  
 
 

Note 3. Notes Receivable
 
On February 2, 2016, the Company entered into a loan and security agreement with C2Go, Inc., a Nevada corporation, pursuant to which the Company agreed to loan a principal amount of $200,000 to C2Go with an interest rate of 10% per annum for a term of 18 months. C2Go’s obligations under the loan and security agreement are secured by a first lien on all assets of C2Go. The debt is senior, and any future debt incurred by C2Go must be subordinated to the debt of the loan and security agreement. Upon maturity of the debt, C2Go was required to issue to the Company 5% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of C2Go as of the date of issuance, on a fully diluted basis, giving effect to any convertible securities, warrants, etc., such shares being validly issued, fully-paid and non-assessable shares for no additional consideration. C2Go defaulted on the Note, therefore the interest rate under the loan and security agreement rose to 18% per annum. The full principal of the note, plus accrued and unpaid interest, was due to be repaid on or before August 2, 2017.  C2Go did not make any payment on that date.  Pursuant to the Note, C2Go had until August 16, 2017 to cure the payment default.  The default was not cured. On August 28, 2017, our wholly-owned subsidiary, FiCentive, Inc. filed a lawsuit against C2Go, Inc, alleging multiple defaults of our mutual loan and security agreement. The case is pending in Bexar County, San Antonio, TX. The Company is in ongoing settlement discussions with C2Go regarding the payment due on the note. C2Go has brought forward an investor interested in buying out the Note via extended payment terms to cover the principal. However, the Company has not reached a final agreement with this investor. Due to the uncertainty of the situation and “more likely than not” recognition threshold as of September 30, 2017, the Company has not recorded a loss reserve on the note receivable. At September 30, 2017, the Company wrote off the accrued interest of $31,667 previously recognized on the C2Go note receivable.
 
On March 7, 2017, the Company agreed to provide $500,000 to Singular Payments, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, under a secured line of credit promissory note. Interest on the note did not accrue until the earlier of August 31, 2017, the date of closing and funding the Company’s proposed acquisition of Singular Payments or the termination of a non-binding letter of intent regarding the proposed acquisition, or until such mutually agreed upon extended date. The loan was increased to $600,000 on August 2, 2017. The Singular Payments, LLC acquisition closed on September 1, 2017. The note receivable was applied to the cash purchase price as part of the Purchase Agreement.

Note 5. Net Earnings (Loss) Per Share
Basic earnings (loss) per share (EPS) were computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS differs from basic EPS due to the assumed conversion of potentially dilutive awards and options that were outstanding during the period. The following is a reconciliation of the numerators and the denominators of the basic and diluted per share computations for net income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016.

Note 6. Income Taxes
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the difference between financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities and are measured by the enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are computed with the presumption that they will be realizable in future periods when taxable income is generated. Predicting the ability to realize these assets in future periods requires a great deal of judgment by management. U.S. generally accepted accounting principles prescribe a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Income tax benefits that meet the “more likely than not” recognition threshold should be recognized. Goodwill is amortized over 15 years for tax purposes.
 
The Company has recognized a deferred tax asset of $1.6 million and has recorded a valuation allowance of $12.7 million to reduce the other deferred tax assets. The Company reviews the assessment of the deferred tax asset and valuation allowance on an annual basis or more often when events indicate a change to the valuation allowance may be warranted.
 
At December 31, 2016, the Company had available net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $40.2 million, which expire beginning in the year 2020. Approximately $0.1 million of the total net operating loss carryforward is subject to an IRS Section 382 limitation from 1999.
 
Management is not aware of any tax positions that would have a significant impact on the Company’s financial position.

Note 7. Legal Proceedings
On April 26, 2016, Michael McFarland, derivatively on behalf the Company, re-filed a class-action lawsuit in United States District Court, District of Nevada that had been previously filed and dismissed. The suit alleges breach of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment by the Company’s Board of Directors and certain executive officers and directors in connection with excessive and unfair compensation paid or awarded during fiscal years 2013 and 2014. The lawsuit seeks disgorgement of excessive compensation as well as damages in an unspecified amount. In July 2016, the Company filed a motion to dismiss the case. In January 2017, the court granted a partial dismissal of the claims and suggested the plaintiffs re-file their petition. Subsequently, the Company re-filed a motion to dismiss the case. On October 7, 2017, the court granted a full dismissal of all claims.

On August 28, 2017, our wholly-owned subsidiary, FiCentive, Inc. filed a lawsuit against C2Go, Inc. alleging multiple defaults of our mutual Loan and Security agreement executed February 2, 2016.

We are in ongoing settlement discussions with C2Go abnd their investor to pay the principal. Hower, we have not reached a final agreement with this investor and or C2Go, Inc. There are no assurances that we will be able to recover the $200,000 principal and or the interest tha is due nor are there assurances there will be any assets for us to recover form our lien on all the assets of C2Go, Inc. if any settlement is not achieved.
 
Aside from the lawsuit described above, the Company may be involved in legal matters arising in the ordinary course of business from time to time. While the Company believes that such matters are currently not material, there can be no assurance that matters arising in the ordinary course of business for which the Company is or could become involved in litigation will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition or results of operations.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS DISCLAIMER
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements for many reasons, including the risks described in our annual report on Form 10-K and other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, they relate only to events as of the date on which the statements are made. We do not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this report to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations, except as required by law.
This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in this report, and our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, filed April 6, 2017, including the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes contained therein. 
Overview
We provide integrated electronic payment processing services to merchants and businesses, including all types of Automated Clearing House, or ACH, processing, credit, PINless debit, prepaid card and debit card-based processing services. We also operate an online payment processing service, under the domain name www.billx.com system, which allows consumers to process online payments to pay any other individual, including family and friends. Through Akimbo, under the domain name www.akimbocard.com, we offer MasterCard prepaid cards to consumers for use as a tool to stay on budget, manage allowances and share money with family and friends. We have further developed our Akimbo platform to include Akimbo Now for businesses, Akimbo Gift for consumers and support for Apple Pay™.
On September 1, 2017, we closed the acquisition of Singular Payments, LLC. Singular Payments is a Fintech payments provider that relies upon innovative technology to process payments for merchants in healthcare and other niche markets nationwide. Singular is primarily focused on custom software integrations of their flat rate payment processing offerings and their proprietary, simple to use electronic bill payment presentment and payment platform which allows merchants to streamline the costly and labor intensive process of invoicing and collections.
We reported a net loss of $1,710,945 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and a net loss of $953,259 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.
Third quarter 2017 credit card processing (transaction) volumes processed were up 33% over the third quarter of 2016.  Credit card dollars processed during the third quarter of 2017 increased 77% compared to the same time period in 2016. Sequentially, credit card transactions processed were up 138% versus the second quarter of 2017 and credit card dollars processed were up 83% over the second quarter of 2017. The growth can be attributed to the recent Singular Payments acquisition, which contributed one month of credit card volume, and continued growth in the PINless debit processing.
ACH (eCheck) volumes during the third quarter of 2017 were down 18% over the same time period in 2016. Returned Check transactions processed during the second quarter of 2017 were down 16% over the same period in 2016. eCheck transaction volumes during the third quarter of 2017 were up 3% versus the second quarter of 2017. Returned check transactions processed during the third quarter of 2017 were up 16% over the second quarter of 2017. The continued decrease in ACH and returned check transactions was the result of the sale of a customer portfolio. The customer continues to build a new portfolio of customers and expects to recover the volume in the future.
Total dollars processed for the third quarter of 2017 exceeded $704 million.
For the fourth quarter of 2017, we expect continued growth in the PINless debit product and a full quarter of incremental revenues from the Singular Payments acquisition. We believe the downward trend in ACH transactions and returned check transactions processed will partially improve on a sequential basis in the fourth quarter of 2017 and in early 2018. We expect to see an increase in the number of enrolled merchant customers, for whom we provide processing for credit and debit card transactions, and we expect to add new clients from our sales pipeline, which we believe will create increased transaction volumes. Our prepaid credit card transactions should continue to grow modestly.

10



We may incur future operating losses. To regain and sustain profitability, we must, among other things, grow and maintain our customer base, implement a successful marketing strategy, continue to maintain and upgrade our technology and transaction-processing systems, provide superior customer service, respond to competitive developments, attract, retain and motivate qualified personnel, and respond to unforeseen industry developments and other factors.
We believe that our success will depend in large part on our ability to (a) grow revenues, (b) effectively manage our operating expenses, (c) add quality customers to our client base, (d) meet evolving customer requirements, (e) adapt to technological changes in an emerging market, and (f) properly assimilate current and future acquisitions of companies and or customer portfolios. The acquisition of Singular Payments should have an immediate impact on growing revenues and increasing gross profits. We are focused on aggressively growing our merchants serviced and increasing transactions to cover the incremental operating costs and amortization associated with the acquisition. In addition to this immediate growth associated with the acquired merchants, we are focused on customer acquisition activities and outsourcing some of our data center operations to third parties to leverage an efficient operating infrastructure allowing expansion of our operations without significantly increasing our fixed operating costs.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based upon our interim condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to the reported amounts of revenues and expenses, bad debt, investments, intangible assets, income taxes, and contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We consider the following accounting policies to be critical because the nature of the estimates or assumptions is material due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment necessary to account for highly uncertain matters or the susceptibility of such matters to change or because the impact of the estimates and assumptions on financial condition or operating performance is material.
For a summary of Critical Accounting Policies, please refer to the Notes to Interim Consolidated Financial Statements, Note 1, Basis of Presentation.
Results of Operations
Revenues
Our revenues are principally derived from providing integrated electronic payment services to merchants and businesses, including credit and debit card-based processing services and transaction processing via the Automated Clearing House, or ACH, network and the program management and processing of prepaid debit cards. We also operate an online payment processing service for consumers under the domain name www.billx.com and sell this service as a private-label application to resellers.

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 17% to $3,588,853, as compared to $3,067,335 for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 decreased 3% to $8,950,038, as compared to $9,186,027 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The increase for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 versus the same period in 2016 was due to increased credit card revenues associated with one month of revenues resulting from the acquisition of Singular Payments, LLC on September 1, 2017. The decrease for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, was due to the decrease in the overall volume of ACH processing transactions, and return transactions.
Cost of Services
Cost of services includes the cost of personnel dedicated to the creation and maintenance of connections to third-party payment processors and the fees paid to such third-party providers for electronic payment processing services. Through our contractual relationships with our payment processors and sponsoring banks, we are able to process ACH and debit, credit or prepaid card transactions on behalf of our customers and their consumers. We pay volume-based fees for debit, credit, ACH and prepaid transactions initiated through these processors or sponsoring banks, and pay fees for other transactions such as returns, notices of change to bank accounts and file transmission.
Cost of services increased 32% to $2,764,236 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $2,101,850 for the same period in the prior year. Cost of services increased 3% to $6,486,587 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $6,291,072 for the same period in the prior year. The increase for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, was primarily due to the increase in the volume of credit card processing transactions associated with the Singular Payments credit card processing volume offset by lower ACH transaction volumes.
Stock-based Compensation
Stock-based compensation expenses were $230,206 and $264,154 for the quarters ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. Stock-based compensation expenses were $655,885 and $835,590 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The decrease in stock-based compensation expense is due to shares that vested or were canceled in December 2016 that are fully amortized.

12



Other Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Other selling, general and administrative expenses increased 7% to $1,172,021 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $1,095,344 for the same period in the prior year. Other selling, general and administrative expenses increased 12% to $2,800,033 the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $2,505,233 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in other selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to the same period in the prior year, represented an increase in advertising, marketing, press releases and legal expenses in addition to one time charges associated with the Singular Payments, LLC acquisition.
Depreciation and Amortization 
Depreciation and amortization totaled $314,789 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to depreciation and amortization of $225,759 for the same period in 2016. Depreciation and amortization totaled $770,607 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to depreciation and amortization of $675,536 for the same period in the prior year. Incremental amortization associated with the Singular Payments, LLC acquisition was $83,333.
Other Income (Expense)
Other income (expense) netted income of $17,374 and $88,806 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to incomes of $25,274 and $169,938 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. The decrease in income for the nine months, as compared to the same period in the prior year, is primarily due to the settlement of a legal case in 2016 in our favor resulting in $97,493 of other income.
Interest income was $16,381 and $25,754, for the quarters ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The decrease in interest for the quarter, as compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to lower cash balances for the quarter. Interest income was $88,927 and $72,739, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The increase in interest for the nine months, as compared to the same period in the prior year, was primarily due to the increase in interest earned on higher cash balances for the nine month period.
We reported a net loss of $890,025 and $1,710,945 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to a net loss of $565,957 and $953,259 for the same periods in the prior year. The key drivers in the decrease in profitability includes lower ACH revenues, higher credit card processing expenses, higher selling, general and administrative expenses and incremental amortization associated with the Singular Payments acquisition.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
At September 30, 2017, we had $2,199,849 of cash and cash equivalents, as compared to $4,120,738 of cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2016. The decrease in cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was primarily due to the acquisition of the Singular Payments, LLC transaction completed on September 1, 2017 and continued capital investments related to prepaid card technologies.
We reported a net loss of $1,710,945 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and a net loss of $953,259 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. At September 30, 2017, we have an accumulated deficit of $51,962,586. Additionally, we have working capital of $2,363,545 and $4,522,151 at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $33,104 and $585,581 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and September 30, 2016, respectively. The decrease in net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period in the prior year was attributable to a higher operating loss.
Net cash used by investing activities was $1,844,611 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to net cash used by investing activities of $351,597 for the same period in the prior year; the increase in net cash used for investing activities was due to increased software capitalization and the Singular Payment LLC acquisition on September 1, 2017. Net cash used by financing activities was $109,382 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. The financing activities represented treasury stock purchases.
On February 2, 2016, we, through our wholly-owned subsidiary FiCentive, Inc., loaned C2Go, Inc. $200,000. The full principal of the note, plus accrued and unpaid interest, was due to be repaid on or before August 2, 2017.  C2Go did not make any payment on that date.  Pursuant to the Note, C2Go had until August 16, 2017 to cure the payment default.  On August 28, 2017, our wholly-owned subsidiary, FiCentive, Inc. filed a lawsuit against C2Go, Inc. alleging multiple defaults of our mutual loan and security agreement. The case is pending in Bexar County, San Antonio, TX. Due to the payment default, we reserve the right to pursue our security interest in the Note, which was secured against C2Go's assets.  We are in ongoing discussions with C2Go and an invest

or to raise money to cover the principal. However, we have not reached an agreement with this investor. Due to the uncertainty of the situation and “more likely than not” recognition threshold as of September 30, 2017, we have not recorded a loss reserve on the note receivable. As of September 30, 2017, we wrote off the interest income recognized but not collected.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We currently have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Item 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
As a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and in Item 10(f)(1) of Regulation S-K, we are electing scaled disclosure reporting obligations and therefore are not required to provide the information requested by this Item.
Item 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Our management evaluated, with the participation of our Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officers, the effectiveness 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 (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officers concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2017 were effective to ensure that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officers, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management. Our evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures included an evaluation of certain components of our internal control over financial reporting. Management’s assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting is expressed at the level of reasonable assurance that the control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that the control system's objectives will be met.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2017 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

On April 26, 2016, Michael McFarland, derivatively on behalf the Company, re-filed a class-action lawsuit in United States District Court, District of Nevada that had been previously filed and dismissed. The suit alleges breach of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment by our Board of Directors and certain executive officers and directors in connection with excessive and unfair compensation paid or awarded during fiscal years 2013 and 2014. The lawsuit seeks disgorgement of excessive compensation as well as damages in an unspecified amount. In July 2016, we filed a motion to dismiss the case. In January 2017, the court granted a partial dismissal of the claims and suggested the plaintiffs re-file their petition. Subsequently, we re-filed a motion to dismiss the case. On October 7, 2017, the court granted a full dismissal of all claims.

On August 28, 2017, our wholly-owned subsidiary, FiCentive, Inc., filed a lawsuit against C2Go, Inc. alleging multiple defaults of our mutual loan and security agreement executed February 2, 2016. The case is pending in Bexar County, San Antonio, Texas. The full principal of the note, plus accrued and unpaid interest, was due to be repaid on or before August 2, 2017. We are in ongoing settlement discussions with C2Go and an their investor to pay the principal. However, we have not reached a final agreement with this investor and or C2Go, Inc. There are no assurances that we will be able to recover the $200,000 principal and or the interest that is due nor are there any assurances there will be any assets for us to recover from our lien on all the assets of C2Go, Inc. if a settlement is not achieved.
 
Aside from the lawsuit described above, we may be involved in legal matters arising in the ordinary course of business from time to time. While we believe that such matters are currently not material, there can be no assurance that matters arising in the ordinary course of business for which we are or could become involved in litigation will not have a material adverse effect on our business,

Item 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities
On September 1, 2017, we issued 1,515,152 shares of registered common stock valued at $2.31 per share associated with the acquisition of Singular Payments to Vaden Landers. We relied on the Section 4(a)(2) exemption from securities registration under the federal securities laws for transactions not involving any public offering. No advertising or general solicitation was employed in offering the securities. The securities were issued to an accredited investor. The securities were offered for investment purposes only and not for the purpose of resale or distribution. The transfer thereof was appropriately restricted by us.
Purchases of Equity Securities by the Issuer and Affiliated Purchasers

On November 2, 2016, we announced that our Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $1 million of our common stock from time to time on the open market, in block transactions, or in privately negotiated transactions.
