PART I

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

History of Seychelle

We are a Nevada corporation. Our principal corporate office address is 22 Journey, Aliso Viejo, California 92656. Our telephone number at this address is 949-234-1999.
 
We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on January 23, 1998 as a change of domicile to Royal Net, Inc., a Utah corporation that was originally incorporated on January 24, 1986. Royal Net, Inc. changed its state of domicile to Nevada and its name to Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc. effective in January 1998.
 
On January 30, 1998, we entered into an Exchange Agreement with Seychelle Water Technologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation (SWT), whereby we exchanged our issued and outstanding capital shares with the shareholders of SWT on a one share for one share basis. We became the parent company and SWT became a wholly owned subsidiary. SWT had been formed in 1997 to market water filtration systems of Aqua Vision International.
 
Organization
 
Our Company is presently comprised of Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation, with two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Seychelle Water Technologies, Inc. and Fill 2 Pure International, Inc., also Nevada corporations (collectively, the Company or Seychelle). We use the trade name "Seychelle Water Filtration Products, Inc." in our commercial operations.
 
Business of Seychelle
 
General
 
Seychelle designs, assembles and distributes unique, state-of-the-art ionic adsorption micron filters specifically for portable filter devices that remove up to 99.99% of all pollutants and contaminants found in any fresh water source as well as increase the alkalinity of the water up a pH level of 9.5. Seychelle water filtration products address a worldwide problem of access to clean drinking water and makes available low-cost, effective filtration products that will meet the need for safe, great tasting, and high quality drinking water.
 

Seychelle markets its portable water filtration bottles throughout the world to customers such as individuals, dealers, distributors, non-governmental organizations and emergency relief organizations such as the Jimmy Bakker Ministry. In addition, the Company has donated thousands of portable bottles to church groups and missionaries worldwide during the life of the Company.

In developing countries, many people in rural areas boil their water for drinking and cooking to kill bacteria, but this process does not remove the pyrogens, chemicals, toxins, volatile organic compounds, heavy metals or other pathogens that remain in the water.  The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 2.2 million people, mostly children in developing nations, die annually from water-related diseases.
 
Business Plan
 
The management of Seychelle has substantial experience in developing improvements and innovations in the field of bottled water, reverse osmosis, ultra filtration and filter technology. As a result, our products can deliver up to 2 micron absolute filtration for pennies per gallon, with pressure as low as 2 pounds per square inch (PSI). Further, our point of difference filtration systems removes up to 99.99% of pollutants and contaminants most commonly found in fresh drinking water supplies in the five major areas of concern as follows:

AESTHETICS: Taste, chlorine, sand, sediment and odor problems.
BIOLOGICS: Pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia and E.Coli Bacteria.
CHEMICALS: Pesticides, detergents, toxic chemicals and industrial waste.
DISSOLVED SOLIDS: Heavy metals such as aluminum, asbestos, copper, lead, mercury and chromium 6.
RADIOLOGICAL:  Cesium 134 & 137, Radon, Radium, Uranium, Radioactive Iodine, etc.
New pH Product which increases the alkalinity of source water up to 9.5 pH level or more.

Seychelle filters have been tested by independent and government laboratories. Selected results from the United States are displayed on our Website at www.seychelle.com, but such information included on our website is not incorporated into this filing.  The benefit of such filtration can save lives worldwide as more people become aware of the benefits of using products utilizing Seychelle's proprietary portable water filtration technology.
 
Principal Products or Services and Their Markets

Current Products

Seychelle has a varied line of portable filter bottles for people on the go. The current products include: Flip-Top and Pull Top bottles, Canteens, Water Pitchers, Pure Water Pump, Stainless Steel bottles, In-Line Filter, Pure Water Bag, Pump N' Pure, Pure Water Pouch and   Pure Water Straws.  They include regular, standard or advanced filters (for virus and bacteria control up to 99.99% reduction). Sizes are from 20 ounces to 42 ounces, and provide up to 150 gallons of pure drinking water from any fresh water source; running or stagnant (such as rivers, lakes, ponds and streams).

New Products

Product design is a constant focus and all products are reviewed annually.

Manufacturing

The Company has determined that the production and assembly of some of our product components in China and Mexico through the use of third-party contract manufacturers at a lower cost than in the U.S. will still maintain equivalent quality standards.  However, our proprietary filter will continue to be manufactured in the U.S.  The assembly of all our products is completed at our facility in Aliso Viejo, California.

Sales Channels

Sales channels pursued include: retail, missionaries, multi-level marketing, international, OEM and joint ventures. Several distributors sell the Company's portable water filtration products to customers in specific distribution channels; including: retail, multi-national corporations, foundations and sports.

Raw Materials

Seychelle's filters include powdered, activated coconut and other media as components in the porous plastic ionic filter. To date, we believe there is an adequate availability of material for all of our products. We do not expect this situation to change in the near future.
 
Customers and Competition

Seychelle products compete against companies offering water filtration and bottled water including (1) bottled water, (2) portable water filtration systems and (3) home water treatment systems provided by suppliers (such as independent dealers, distributors, catalogs, internet sellers, etc.) in the form of reverse osmosis systems, distillation, and filtration systems.  Therefore, Seychelle's portable and home filtration products compete in a limited segment of the drinking water market as an alternative to other sources of filtered or purified drinking water.

Seychelle has a negligible share of the world's filtered or purified water market. Our products sell in a niche category of the market - portable filtration bottles that use powder-activated carbon filters that compete with our powder-activated coconut filters with various media called ionic adsorption micron filtration technology (IAMF) which remove many organic and inorganic contaminants that simple activated carbon filters cannot. Most powder activated carbon filters on the market remove Chlorine, sediment and dirt thus improving taste and odor, as well as a handful of other contaminants such as Lead, Mercury, Zinc and Copper. This would include leading brands such as Brita, PUR, General Electric and Culligan, who collectively dominate the home market. In the portable segment of the market, there are hundreds of small companies selling a variety of specialized filters, with no one company having a majority share and no industry data available. We believe that our current share of this market is negligible.

Seychelle sells its products in two ways. First, it sells its own brand to individuals, dealers, distributors, multilevel marketing companies and missionaries on a direct basis. Second, the Company offers specially designed products to the same customers as a private label supplier if purchasers buy in significant volume. In some instances, we may supply only filters for their bottles or hydration backpacks as opposed to complete products.

Currently, the majority of our sales are to customers in the U.S. For the year ended February 28, 2018, we had three U.S. based customers that accounted for 56% of our total sales.  For the year ended February 28, 2017, we had three U.S. based customers that accounted for 53% of our total sales.

Backlog
 
As of February 28, 2018, and February 28, 2017, we had a backlog of approximately $395,000 and $465,000, respectively in unshipped orders.

Employees

As of February 28, 2018, we had a President and one (1) executive employee managing the Company with five (5) administrative employees supporting that effort.  In assembly, operations and warehousing we had seventeen (17) full-time employees and one (1) part-time employee.

As of February 28, 2017, we had a President and one (1) executive employee managing the Company with six (6) administrative employees supporting that effort.  In assembly, operations and warehousing we had twenty six (26) full-time employees and one (1) part-time employee working to fill orders.

Proprietary Information and Technology
 
We previously held two patents, which have expired. The first patent was for the portable water filtration system with the filter cap assembly, Patent # 5,914,045. The second patent, Patent #6,058,971, was for a quick connect diverter valve. 
 
We have filed and received approval for five trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office which were granted:  Seychelle®, which has been used in commerce since 1997, along with Pres 2 Pure, Fill 2 Pure, pH20 Plus and Aq-RO-matic.

We have a trade name, "Seychelle Water Filtration Products, Inc.," which we use in our commercial operations.

Government Regulation

We are not, as a company, subject to any material governmental regulation or approvals. However, our products are subject to inspection and evaluation by regulatory authorities that have jurisdiction over water quality standards. Such authorities are on the federal, state, and local level, both in the United States and overseas, where we market our products. Most of our products have already been inspected and evaluated by all applicable governmental authorities in the areas in which we operate or plan to operate in the near future. With respect to our current focus of operations, we do not know if governmental regulation will have a material impact on us in the future.
 
Research and Development

We did not spend a significant amount for research and development activities during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018.  

Environmental Compliance

At the present time, Seychelle is not subject to any material costs for compliance with any environmental laws. With respect to our current focus of operations, we do not know if environmental compliance will have a material impact on us in the future.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

THE OWNERSHIP AND INVESTMENT IN OUR SECURITIES INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISKS. OUR COMMON SHARES SHOULD BE PURCHASED ONLY BY PERSONS WHO CAN AFFORD TO LOSE THEIR ENTIRE INVESTMENT. PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER THESE RISKS RELATING TO OUR COMPANY.
 
We Have Been Profitable for Six of Our Eight Most Recent Fiscal Years. However, We Cannot Guarantee That We Will Continue to Conduct Profitable Operations. We were profitable for our most recent fiscal year.

 
We recorded a net loss and negative cash flows from operations for the most recent fiscal year ending February 28, 2017. We had the following (loss) income for the years ending:
 
 
 
Net Income
(Loss)

While we believe that we have had a successful operating history, we cannot guarantee that we will continue to be profitable.  If we do not continue to be profitable, we may go out of business, and an investor could lose their entire investment.

We Have a Significant Dependence on a Few Customers.

During the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018, the Company had three customer who accounted for approximately 33%, 12% and 11% (or 56%) of total sales during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018.  As of February 28, 2017, the Company had three customers who accounted for approximately 36%, 9% and 8% (or 53%) of total sales during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2017.  One of those customers accounted for approximately 33% and 60% of net accounts receivable as of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, respectively.  Management believes that if future revenues from its significant customers decline, those revenues can be replaced through the sales to other customers.  However, there can be no assurance that this will occur, which could result in an adverse effect on the Company's financial condition or results of operations in the future.

The Water Filtration Business is Subject to Intense Competition and Subject to Numerous Risks. Many of Our Competitors Have Substantially Greater Capabilities and Resources and May be Able to Develop and Commercialize Products Before We Do.

The water filtration business is highly competitive with many companies having access to the same market. Technological competition from larger and more established companies is significant and expected to increase. Most of the companies with which we compete and expect to compete have far greater capital resources and significant research and development staffs, marketing and distribution programs and facilities, and many of them have substantially greater experience in the production and marketing of products. Our ability to compete effectively may be adversely affected by the ability of these competitors to devote greater resources to the sale and marketing of their products than we can. In addition, one or more of our competitors may succeed or may already have succeeded in developing technologies and products that are more effective than any of those we currently offer or are developing. In addition, there can be no guarantee that we will be able to protect our technology from being copied or infringed upon. There can be no assurance that we will have the necessary resources to be competitive. Therefore, investors should consider an investment in us to be an extremely risky venture.

As an Organization, We are Dependent Upon Technology for the Development of Our Products.

We are operating in a business that requires continuing research, development and testing efforts. There can be no assurance that new products will not render our products obsolete or non-competitive at some time in the future.

Our Success as an Organization Depends, in Large Part, Upon Our Ability to Protect Our Intellectual Property Rights. While We Have Several Items of Intellectual Property, Our Two Patents Have Expired.
 
We hold trademarks and a tradename, but our two patents have expired.  We cannot at this time estimate the financial impact of the expiration of these patents to Seychelle. In general, vigorous protection and pursuit of intellectual property rights or positions characterize our industry, which has resulted in significant and often protracted and expensive litigation. Therefore, our competitors may assert that our technologies or products infringe on their patents or proprietary rights. Problems with patents or other rights could increase the cost of our products or delay or preclude new product development and commercialization by us. If infringement claims against us are deemed valid, we may not be able to obtain appropriate licenses on acceptable terms or at all. Litigation could be costly and time-consuming but may be necessary to protect our technology license positions or to defend against infringement claims.
 
Our Success is Dependent Upon the Decision Making of Our Directors and Executive Officers.

Our directors and executive officers have made a full commitment to our business. The loss of any or all of these individuals could have a materially adverse impact on our operations because we have no succession plan for any of them. We will depend on our senior executive officers as well as other key personnel.  If any key employee decides to terminate his employment with us, this termination could delay the commercialization of our products or prevent us from sustaining our profitability. Competition for qualified employees is intense among companies in our industry and the loss of qualified employees, or an inability to attract, retain and motivate additional highly skilled employees required for the expansion of our activities, could hinder our ability to successfully develop and maintain marketable products.

Our Board of Directors and the Majority of the Shares of the Company is Under the Complete Control of Mr. Carl Palmer.

The Board of Directors is completely under the control of Mr. Carl Palmer. The current Board of Directors consists of Mr. Palmer, his daughter, Mrs. Cari Beck, her husband and Mr. Palmer's son-in-law, Mr. John Beck, Gary Hess and Jenevieve Fisher.

Further, as a result of his control of the majority of the shares of the Company and its Board of Directors, it must be assumed that all final decisions of the Company will ultimately be made solely by Mr. Palmer. The amount of outside input and advice which Mr. Palmer will utilize, including that from the two independent directors, can be expected to be entirely within his sole discretion.

The Acquisition of Other Technologies Could Result In Operating Difficulties, Dilution and Other Harmful Consequences.  

We may selectively pursue strategic acquisitions, any of which could be material to our business, operating results and financial condition.  Future acquisitions could divert management's time and focus from operating our business.  In addition, integrating an acquired technology is risky and may result in unforeseen operating difficulties and expenditures.

The anticipated benefits of future acquisitions, if consummated, may not materialize.  Future acquisitions or dispositions could result in potentially dilutive issuances of our equity securities, including our common stock, the incurrence of debt, contingent liabilities, or write-offs of intellectual properties any of which could harm our financial condition.  Future acquisitions may also require us to obtain additional financing, which may not be available on favorable terms or at all.

We Face Risks Associated With Currency Exchange Rate Fluctuations.  

Although we currently transact business primarily in U.S. dollars, a large portion of our revenues and related cost of goods sold may be determined in foreign currencies if we continue to expand our international operations.  Conducting business in currencies other than U.S. dollars subjects the Company to fluctuations in currency exchange rates that could have a negative impact on our reported operating results.  Fluctuations in the value of the U.S. dollar relative to other currencies may impact our revenue, cost of goods sold and operating gross margin, and result in foreign currency translation gains and losses.  Historically, we have not engaged in exchange rate hedging activities.

Changes to Financial Accounting or Other Standards May Affect Our Operating Results and Cause Us To Change Our Business Practices.    

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, in the United States.  These accounting principles are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).  The Securities and Exchange Commission also provides interpretation, guidance and principles in the preparation of financial statements.  A change in those policies could have a significant effect on our reported results and may affect our reporting of transactions completed before a change is announced.

If We Fail in Maintaining Effective Internal Control Over Financial Reporting, The Price of Our Common Stock May be Adversely Affected.  

We are required to establish and maintain appropriate internal control over financial reporting.  Failure to establish those controls, or any failure of those controls once established, could adversely impact our public disclosure regarding our business, financial condition or results of operations.  In addition, our future assessments of internal control over financial reporting may identify additional weaknesses and conditions that need to be addressed in our internal control over financial reporting or other matters that may raise concerns for investors.  Any material weaknesses that needs to be addressed in management's assessment of our internal control over financial reporting or in the report on the effectiveness of our internal controls by our independent registered public accounting firm, when, and if, applicable, may have an adverse impact of our common stock.
 
If We Fail to Comply with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 in a Timely Manner, Our Business Could Be Harmed and Our Stock Price Could Decline.  
 
Rules adopted by the SEC pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 require management's annual assessment of our internal control over financial reporting.  The standards that must be met for the management to assess the internal control over financial reporting as effective are complex, and require significant documentation, testing, and possible remediation to meet the detailed standards.  We have incurred significant expenses and we devote resources to Section 404 compliance on an ongoing basis.  In the event that our Chief Executive Officer/Chief Financial Officer determine that our internal control over financial reporting is not effective as defined under Section 404, we cannot predict how regulators will react on how the market prices of our shares will be affected, however, we believe that there is a risk that investor confidence and share value may be negatively impacted.
 
Maintaining and Improving Our Financial Controls and The Requirements Of Being a Public Company May Strain Our Resources, Divert Management's Attention, and Affect Our Ability to Attract and Retain Qualified Members For Our Board of Directors.  
 
As a public company, we are subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.  The requirements of these rules and regulations increase our legal, accounting, and financial compliance costs, make some activities more difficult, time-consuming and costly, and may also place undue strain on our personnel, systems, and resources.  The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires, among other things, that we maintain effective disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting.  Fulfilling this requirement can be difficult to achieve and maintain.
 
As a result, management's attention may be diverted from other business concerns, which could harm our business, operating results and financial condition.  These efforts also involve substantial costs.

We May be Impacted By the Implementation of Regulatory Requirements as a Result of the Passage of the Dodd-Frank Act.
 
In July, 2010, Congress enacted the Dodd-Frank Act, which instituted major changes in the regulatory regime for public companies. At the present time, we do not believe that Seychelle will be impacted in a material way by this legislation. However, the implementation of the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act is subject to regulations which have not yet been written and its statutory provisions have not been the subject of extensive judicial review, so we cannot guarantee that we may not come under its purview at some point in the future and be affected negatively by it.

Our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws Could Discourage Acquisition Proposals, Delay a Change in Control, or Prevent Other Transactions.

Provisions of our articles of incorporation and bylaws, as well as provisions of the Nevada Business Corporation Act, may discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of our Company that you as a stockholder may consider favorable and may be in your best interest. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws contain provisions that:
 
authorize the issuance of "blank check" preferred stock that could be issued by our Board of Directors to increase the number of outstanding shares and discourage a takeover attempt;
 
 
 Limit who may call special meetings of stockholders.
 
Our Stock Price Can Be Volatile.

The future market price of our common stock could fluctuate widely because of:
 
 
future announcements about our Company or our competitors, including the results of testing, technological innovations or new commercial products;
 
 
negative regulatory actions with respect to our potential products or regulatory approvals with respect to our competitors' products;
 
 
changes in government regulations;
 
 
developments in our relationships with our partners including customers, vendors and distributors;
 
 
developments affecting our partners; including customers, vendors and distributors;
 
 
our failure to acquire or maintain proprietary rights to the products we develop;
 
 
litigation; and
 
 
public concern as to the safety of our products.

The stock market has experienced price and volume fluctuations that have particularly affected the market price for many emerging companies. These fluctuations have often been unrelated to the operating performance of these companies. These broad market fluctuations may cause the market price of our common stock to be lower or more volatile than otherwise expected.

Buying Penny Stocks is Very Risky and Speculative. The Applicability of the "Penny Stock Rules" to Broker-dealer Sales of Our Common Stock Will Have a Negative Effect on the Liquidity and Market Price of Our Common Stock.

Trading in our shares is subject to the "penny stock rules" adopted pursuant to Rule 15g-9 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which apply to companies that are not listed on an exchange and whose common stock trades at less than $5.00 per share or which have a tangible net worth of less than $5,000,000 or $2,000,000 if we have been operating for three or more years. The penny stock rules impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers which sell such securities to persons other than established customers and institutional accredited investors. For transactions covered by this rule, a broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and have received the purchaser's written consent to the transaction prior to sale. Consequently, the penny stock rules will affect the ability of broker-dealers to sell shares of our common stock and may affect the ability of shareholders to sell their shares in the secondary market, as compliance with such rules may delay and/or preclude certain trading transactions. The rules could also have an adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.
 
 
- 11 -

 
 
 
These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for our common stock. Many brokers may be unwilling to engage in transactions in our common stock because of the added disclosure requirements, thereby making it more difficult for stockholders to dispose of their shares. You will also find it difficult to obtain accurate information about, and/or quotations as to the price of our common stock.

We have added a stock broker to create or maintain a market in our common stock, which could favorably impact the price and liquidity of our securities.

We Do Not Expect to Pay Dividends on Our Common Stock.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
The Company may be, from time to time, involved in legal proceedings in the normal course of business.  The Company is involved in the following legal proceedings as of February 28, 2018 which would be deemed material:

On March 27, 2017, the Company received a Notice of Filing of Discrimination complaint in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange by a former employee.  The Company also received on June 5, 2017, a Request for Entry of Default filed to Superior Court of California, County of Orange by the same employee. The matter is currently set for trial on June 25, 2018.  The case is in the discovery phase.  The Company believes that the complaint is completely without merit and plan to vigorously contest the matter.

Another pending action is Rolling Tides, LLC vs. Carl Palmer, Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc., and other defendants.  The case was brought in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange.  The action alleges certain fraudulent transfers occurred from Seychelle to the various defendants.  The plaintiffs have refused to identify any such transfers by date or amount.  The matter is in early discovery and no trial date is set.  All the defendants have denied the allegations of the complaint and are vigorously defending the matter.  It is not likely that the case will be settled without trial.  The Company believes that the case has no merit.

The table below represents the range of high and low bid quotations of our common stock as reported during the reporting period herein. The following bid price market quotations represent prices between dealers and do not include retail markup, markdown, or commissions; hence, they may not represent factual transactions.  As of June 6, 2018, the common stock had a closing bid price of $0.2201 per share.

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 

This discussion summarizes the significant factors affecting the operating results, financial condition, liquidity and cash flows of the Company and its subsidiaries as of and for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017.  The discussion and analysis that follows should be read together with the consolidated financial statements of Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc. and the notes to the consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this annual report on Form 10-K.  Except for historical information, the matters discussed in this section are forward looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties and are based upon judgments concerning various factors that are beyond the Company's control.

Application of Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by management's application of accounting policies.

Critical accounting policies for us include our accounting for inventory reserves, allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns reserves, share based payment arrangements and determination of the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.

Inventory Reserves

At each balance sheet date, the Company evaluates its ending inventory for excess quantities and obsolescence.  This evaluation includes an analysis of sales levels by product type.  Among other factors, the Company considers current product configurations, historical and forecasted demand, market conditions and product life cycles when determining the market value of the inventory.  This requires significant judgments including estimation of future cash flows, which is dependent on internal forecasts, estimation of the long-term rate of growth for our business, and the period over which cash flows will occur. Provisions are made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their estimated net realizable values.  Once established, write-downs are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the excess or obsolete inventory.  

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts and Sales Returns Reserves


The Company analyzes its current accounts receivable portfolio and sales returns in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 605, Revenue Recognition. Estimates for potential uncollectible accounts receivable and sales returns are based on a variety of factors, the age of the receivable, historical payment patterns, and actual return experience of specific products or similar products. The Company also reviews its estimates for product returns based on expected return data communicated to us by customers and historical experience.  Management is able to make reasonable and reliable estimates of its allowance for doubtful accounts and product returns based on our history in this business.
 
 
 
 
- 14 -

 
 
Income Taxes
 
We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method under which deferred tax assets or liabilities are calculated at the balance sheet date using current tax laws and rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income.  Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amounts expected to be realized.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements


In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Updated ("ASU") 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, issued as a new Topic, ASC Topic 606 ("ASU 2014-09"). The new revenue recognition standard provides a give-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The premise of the standard is that a Company should recognize 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. ASU 2014-09 can be adopted by the Company either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption.

The Company has elected to adopt the guidance beginning in fiscal 2019 using the modified retrospective approach. The Company is performing as assessment of the impact of adoption of this guidance, including required disclosures with assistance from an outside subject matter expert. Although our evaluation is not yet finalized, management believes that the impact of adopting the standard on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures will not be material.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)," which will require lessees to recognize almost all leases on their balance sheet as a right-of-use asset and a lease liability. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance. Classification will be based on criteria that are largely similar to those applied in current lease accounting, but without explicit bright lines. Lessor accounting is similar to the current model, but updated to align with certain changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We are currently evaluating the potential impact this standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

Management does not believe any other recently issued but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the Company's present or future consolidated financial statements.

Sales.  Sales increased to $5,279,377 during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 from $4,378,436 during the year ended February 28, 2017.  The increase of 21% is primarily due to increasing sales of our bottle, portable retail, pitcher products and straw.

Cost of sales and gross profit percentage.  As a percentage of sales, the gross profit margin during the year ended February 28, 2018 increased to 47% from 25% due to Company managing cost in line with revenue.  The product mix and timing of significant sales is always an important factor in the resulting profit margins reported.  The Company believes that the average gross margin percentages overall can decrease to a range around approximately 40% in the foreseeable future.

Legal expenses.  The decrease in legal expenses of $211,679 is due to fees for employment matters/product design and performance not recurring in 2018.

Impairment of intangible assets. The Company did not record any impairment charge during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018.  The Company recorded an impairment charge of $50,000 the balance of purchased intellectual property from a related party for $150,000 in fiscal year ended February 28, 2017.

Selling, general and administrative. The selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $799,340, or (33%), from prior year. This decrease was a direct result of the decrease in personnel costs incurred in reductions of the Company's management and Board of Directors.

Interest income and expense. Interest income and expense was relatively consistent from year to year.

Other income and expense.  Other income and expense increased $32,253, or 6790%.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
To the Stockholders and the Board of Directors of Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc.
 
Opinion on the Financial Statements
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the Company) as of February 28, 2018 and 2017, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to the consolidated financial statements (collectively, the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of February 28, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
Basis for Opinion
 
These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.
 
Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

SEYCHELLE ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements


NOTE 1:   ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Organization

Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on January 23, 1998 as a change in domicile to Royal Net, Inc., a Utah corporation that was originally incorporated on January 24, 1986. Royal Net, Inc. changed its state of domicile to Nevada and its name to Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc. effective in January 1998.  Seychelle Water Technologies, Inc., and Fill 2 Pure International, Inc., both wholly owned subsidiaries, were formed as corporations in February 1997 and April 2013, respectively, under the laws of the state of Nevada for the purpose of marketing.

Description of Business

The Company designs, assembles and distributes water filtration systems. These systems include portable water bottles, pumps, home-use pitchers, and related water filtration products that can be filled from nearly any available source of fresh water. 
 

Management's Plan

As of February 28, 2018, the Company had approximately $2,076,000 in cash and cash equivalents and a backlog of approximately $395,000 in unshipped product.
 
Seychelle has been continuing to develop innovative marketing and product concepts for water purification for the world.  The demand is expanding rapidly due to the health concerns caused by extensive contamination of drinking water by major industrial, agriculture and natural causes.  Seychelle continues to develop new technologies that remove contaminants such as lead, Chromium and others to create products for both here in the U.S. and also around the world to ensure safe drinking water.  With the growing interest for higher alkaline water, referred to as pH, Seychelle now includes a full line of products that meets these demands.

This year, Seychelle products have expanded its sales efforts in the following international markets; Mexico, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and China .  It's our intention to expand our marketing activities more strongly to the international market and E-commerce.  In addition, Seychelle is managing cost in line with current revenue.

Our cash requirements relate primarily to working capital needed to operate and grow our business, including funding operating expenses, growth in inventory and servicing clients, and continued development and expansion of our products.  Our ability to achieve profitability and meet future liquidity needs and capital requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including the timing and quantity of product orders and shipments; the timing and amount of our operating expenses; the timing and costs of product service requirements; the extent to which our products gain market acceptance; the timing and costs of product development and introductions; the extent of our ongoing and any new research and development programs; and changes in our strategy or our planned activities.


NOTE 2:   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 

This summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company's consolidated financial statements.  The consolidated financial statements and notes are representations of the Company's management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements herein as of and for the years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017.
 
Basis of Presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Principles of Consolidation

The Company is presently comprised of Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation, with two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Seychelle Water Technologies, Inc., and Fill 2 Pure International, Inc., also Nevada corporations (collectively, the Company or Seychelle). All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
Use of Estimates

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates made in preparing the consolidated financial statements include the allowance for doubtful accounts and sales returns, inventory reserves and the deferred income tax valuation allowance. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

NOTE 2:   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 

The Company considers highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  The Company maintains its cash and cash equivalents in bank deposit accounts which at times may exceed federally insured limits of $250,000.  The Company has not experienced any losses related to this concentration of risk. Deposits exceeded insured limits by approximately $1,826,000 as of February 28, 2018.
 
Accounts Receivable
 
The Company performs periodic credit evaluations of its customers' financial condition and does not require collateral. Trade receivables generally are due in 30 days. An allowance for doubtful accounts is recorded when it is probable that all or a portion of a trade receivable balance will not be collected.

Revenue Recognition
 
The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, products are shipped and title has passed, the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.  These criteria are typically met when the product is shipped. Revenue is not recognized at the time of shipment if these criteria are not met.  Certain of the Company's sales include a right for the customer to return the product if they are not satisfied.  The Company has an unconditional return policy for the first 90 days.  Customers may return the product for a full refund, or they may receive a replacement at no charge. The same policy applies to any product sold from the period 91 days after purchase to one year, for any defects in materials or workmanship.  In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, the Company makes periodic assessments of return activity and if necessary records a reserve for product returns.

Inventory

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out basis. Inventory is comprised of raw materials and finished goods.  Raw materials consist of fittings, caps and other components necessary to assemble the Company's finished goods.  Finished goods consist of water bottles and other filtration systems that are available for shipment to customers.  Finished goods and work in process include the costs of materials, labor and an allocation of overhead.  Total overhead allocated to inventory as of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017 amounted to approximately $68,000 and $234,000, respectively.
  
At each balance sheet date, the Company evaluates its ending inventory for excess quantities and obsolescence.  This evaluation includes an analysis of sales levels by product type.  Among other factors, the Company considers current product configurations, historical and forecasted demand, market conditions and product life cycles when determining the net realizable value of the inventory.  Provisions are made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their estimated net realizable values.  Once established, write-downs are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the excess or obsolete inventory.  The Company's reserve for excess and obsolete inventory amounted to approximately $185,000 and $416,000 as of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, respectively.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost.  Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the depreciable assets.  The estimated useful lives used in determining depreciation are three to five years for tooling, five years for computers and vehicles, and five to seven years for furniture and equipment. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the lease term or the estimated useful life of the respective asset.  Management evaluates useful lives regularly in order to determine recoverability.

Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred; additions and betterments are capitalized. Upon retirement or sale, the cost and related accumulated depreciation of the disposed assets are removed, and any resulting gain or loss is recorded. Fully depreciated assets are not removed from the accounts until physical disposition.
 
Intangible Assets

Intangible assets include intellectual property and trademarks. All trademarks are capitalized and amortized over the economic useful lives using the straight-line method.  The Company assesses whether there has been a permanent impairment of the value of intangible assets by considering factors such as expected future product revenues, anticipated product demand and prospects, and other economic factors.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements


NOTE 2:   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

Long-Lived Assets
 

The carrying value of long-lived assets, such as property and equipment, are evaluated when indicators of impairment are present. Impairment is assessed when the undiscounted future cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the assets' carrying amount. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary. The Company recorded an impairment charge for certain intangible assets in the amount of $50,000 for the year ended February 28, 2017.

Customer Deposits

Customer deposits represent advance payments received for products and are recognized as a liability.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

For certain financial instruments, including accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturities.

Cost of Sales
 
Cost of sales is comprised primarily of the cost of purchased product, as well as labor, inbound freight costs, allocated overhead costs and other material costs required to complete products, including inventory markdowns due to excess and obsolete inventory.

Shipping and Handling

All amounts billed to customers relating to shipping and handling are reported as a component of sales. Costs incurred by the Company for shipping and handling, including transportation costs paid to third party shippers, are reported as a component of cost of sales.

Sales Tax

The Company collects sales tax in various jurisdictions. Upon collection from customers, it records the amount as a payable to the related jurisdiction. On a periodic basis, it files a sales tax return with the jurisdictions and remits the amount indicated on the return.

Advertising


Advertising costs are expensed as incurred.  Total advertising expenses amounted to approximately $30,000 and $2,300 for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, respectively, and recorded as selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

Research and Development

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred and amounted to approximately $6,100 and $1,200 for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, respectively. These costs are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

NOTE 2:   SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)
 
Stock-Based Compensation
The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, which establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, primarily focusing on accounting for transactions where an entity obtains services in share based payment transactions. ASC 718 requires entities to measure the cost of services received in exchange for equity instruments, including restricted stock, based on the grant date fair value of the award and to recognize it as compensation expense over the period services are to be provided, usually the vesting period.

The fair value of options and warrants is calculated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. This model was developed to estimate the fair value of freely tradable, fully transferable options without vesting restrictions. As such, the values derived from using that model can differ significantly from other methods of valuing the Company's stock based compensation arrangements. The Black-Scholes model also requires subjective assumptions, including future stock price volatility and expected time to exercise, which greatly affect the calculated values.  These factors could change in the future, affecting the determination of stock based compensation expense in future periods.

The Company's fair value calculations for stock based compensation awards have been based on the following assumptions relates to year end February 28, 2018.
 
Expected life in years
 7
 
Stock price volatility
244%
 
Risk free interest rate
2.9%
 
Expected dividends
None
 

The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes model referred to above are based upon the following data: (1) The expected life of the option or warrant is estimated by considering the contractual term, the vesting period and the expected exercise date. (2) The expected stock price volatility of the underlying shares over the expected life is based upon historical share price data. (3) The risk free interest rate is based on published U.S. Treasury Department interest rates for the expected life. (4) Expected dividends are based on historical dividend data and expected future dividend activity.

Income Taxes

The Company utilizes the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes.  The asset and liability method requires that the current or deferred tax consequences of all events recognized in the consolidated financial statements be measured by applying the provisions of enacted tax laws to determine the amount of taxes payable or refundable currently or in future years. Deferred tax assets are reviewed for recoverability and the Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that all or some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be recovered.

The Company also follows ASC 740-10-25, which provides detailed guidance for the financial statement recognition, measurement and disclosure of uncertain tax positions recognized in an enterprise's financial statements in accordance with ASC 740, "Accounting for Income Taxes".  ASC 740-10-25 prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  It also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.  
 
Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Basic net income (loss)  per common share is computed by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during each of the periods presented. Diluted net income per common share is determined using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents, assuming the conversion, exercise, or issuance of all potential common stock equivalents unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase the income per share. If the inclusion of common stock equivalents in the weighted average number of common shares outstanding would be anti-dilutive these items would be omitted from the calculation of net income (loss) per common share. The dilutive effect of outstanding stock options and warrants is reflected in diluted earnings per share by application of the treasury stock method.

Concentrations

The Company utilizes the services of two individuals, one of which is a related party and one of which is third-party, in China to source materials and the manufacturing of component parts with third-party vendors in China. As of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, the Company had deposits for inventory purchases in China of approximately $8,067 and $3,000, respectively.

For the year ended February 28, 2018, we had 3 customers that accounted for 33%, 12% and 11% (or 56%).  As of February 28, 2017 we had three customer that accounted for 36%, 9% and 8% (or 53%) of our total sales.  One of these customers accounted for 33% and 68% as of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017 of net accounts receivable.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Updated ("ASU") 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, issued as a new Topic, ASC Topic 606 ("ASU 2014-09"). The new revenue recognition standard provides a give-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The premise of the standard is that a Company should recognize 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. ASU 2014-09 can be adopted by the Company either retrospectively or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption.

The Company has elected to adopt the guidance beginning in fiscal 2019 using the modified retrospective approach. The Company is performing as assessment of the impact of adoption of this guidance, including required disclosures with assistance from an outside subject matter expert. Although its evaluation is not yet finalized, management believes that the impact of adopting the standard on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures will not be material.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)," which will require lessees to recognize almost all leases on their balance sheet as a right-of-use asset and a lease liability. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance. Classification will be based on criteria that are largely similar to those applied in current lease accounting, but without explicit bright lines. Lessor accounting is similar to the current model, but updated to align with certain changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact this standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

Management does not believe any other recently issued but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the Company's present or future consolidated financial statements.

Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "TCJA"). The TCJA makes broad and complex changes to the U.S. tax code, including, but not limited to, reducing the U.S. statutory corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, effective January 1, 2018. U.S. GAAP requires that deferred income tax assets and liabilities be remeasured at the income tax rate expected to apply when those temporary differences reverse, and that the effects of any change to such income tax rate be recognized in the period when the change was enacted.

NOTE 9:   INCOME TAXES (CONTINUED)
 
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted comprehensive tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "TCJA"). The TCJA makes broad and complex changes to the U.S. tax code, including, but not limited to, reducing the U.S. statutory corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, effective January 1, 2018. U.S. GAAP requires that deferred income tax assets and liabilities be remeasured at the income tax rate expected to apply when those temporary differences reverse, and that the effects of any change to such income tax rate be recognized in the period when the change was enacted.

In connection with the Company's initial analysis of the impact of the TCJA, the Company recorded a discrete net tax expense of $282,408 in the year ended February 28, 2018. This net expense is primarily due to the remeasurement of the Company's existing deferred tax assets and liabilities. Due to the Company having a full valuation allowance related to their deferred taxes, the $282,408 discrete tax expense associated with the remeasurement is equally offset by the valuation allowance causing an overall net zero impact on the Company's current tax rate.

The SEC staff issued Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 ("SAB 118"), which provides guidance on accounting for the tax effects of the TCJA. SAB 118 provides a measurement period that should not extend beyond one year from the TCJA enactment date for companies to complete the accounting under ASC 740. To the extent that a company's accounting for certain income tax effects of the TCJA is incomplete but it is able to determine a reasonable estimate, it must record a provisional estimate in the financial statements.


We recorded the effects of the TCJA for year ended February 28, 2018 using our best estimates and the information available to us through the date the financial statements were issued. However, our analysis is ongoing and as such, the income tax effects that we have recorded are provisional.

The valuation allowance for deferred tax assets as of February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017 $611,182 and $1,222,653, respectively.  The net change in the total valuation allowance was an increase of $558,002 and $1,081,998 for the years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, respectively. In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more-likely-than-not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible.  Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, and tax-planning strategies in making this assessment.  It was determined that it was more likely than not that a full valuation allowance was necessary as of February 28, 2018.

At February 28, 2018, the Company had unused net operating loss carryovers of approximately $496,000 and $927,000 for federal and state tax purposes, respectively, which expires beginning in 2037. 

The Company includes interest and penalties, if any, arising from the underpayment of income taxes in the consolidated statements of operations in the provision for income taxes. As of February 28, 2018 the Company had no accrued interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions. The tax years that remain subject to examination by major taxing jurisdictions are fiscal years 2014 through 2017 for federal purposes and fiscal years 2013 through 2017 for state purposes.
 

NOTE 10:    COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Legal Proceedings
 
The Company was involved in litigation or legal proceedings as of February 28, 2018.  On March 27, 2017, the Company received a Notice of Filing of Discrimination complaint in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange by a former employee.  The Company also received on June 5, 2017, a Request for Entry of Default filed to Superior Court of California, County of Orange by the same employee. The matter is currently set for trial on June 25, 2018.  The.case is in the discovery phase.  The Company believes that the complaint is completely without merit and plan to vigorously contest the matter.

Another pending action is Rolling Tides, LLC vs. Carl Palmer, Seychelle Environmental Technologies, Inc., and other defendants.  The case was brought in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Orange.  The action alleges certain fraudulent transfers occurred from Seychelle to the various defendants.  The plaintiffs have refused to identify any such transfers by date or amount.  The matter is in early discovery and no trial date is set.  All the defendants have denied the allegations of the complaint , and are vigorously defending the matter.  It is not likely that the case will be settled without trial.  The Company believes that the case has no merit.

Licenses

The Company has historically entered into licensing agreements with third-parties for product proprietary rights, patent and trademark ownership, and use of product name. In return, the Company agrees to pay licensing fees and/or royalties on sales of those products. During the years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017, the Company paid $22,651 and $12,500, respectively, in royalties and licensing fees related under these agreements.

ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES
We did not have any disagreements on accounting and financial disclosures with our present independent registered public accounting firm during the reporting periods.


ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file with the SEC under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and financial officers, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. As required by Rule 15d-15(b) of the Exchange Act, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive and principal 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) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report.  Based on the foregoing, our principal executive and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to ensure the information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act. The Company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company's financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP) and includes those policies and procedures that:

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;

provide reasonable assurance that the transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors;

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements;

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;

provide reasonable assurance that the transactions are recorded  as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 
 
- 20 -

 
 
 

Internal control over financial reporting cannot provide absolute assurance of achieving financial reporting objectives because of its inherent limitations. Internal control over financial reporting is a process that involves human diligence and compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from human failures. Internal control over financial reporting also can be circumvented by collusion or improper management override. Because of such limitations, there is a risk that material misstatements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by internal control over financial reporting. However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process. Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk. Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company.

Management has used the framework set forth in the report entitled Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013) published by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission, known as COSO, to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. Based on this assessment, management has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of February 28, 2018.

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected. In connection with the assessment described above, management identified the following control deficiencies that represent material weaknesses at February 28, 2018:

(1)
lack of a functioning audit committee and lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's Board of Directors capable to oversee the audit function;

(2)
inadequate segregation of duties due to limited number of personnel, which makes the reporting process susceptible to management override;

(3)
insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements;
 
(4)
ineffective controls over period end financial disclosure and reporting processes; and

Management believes that the material weaknesses set forth in items (1) through (4) above did not have an effect on the Company's financial reporting during the year ended February 28, 2018.

We are committed to improving our financial organization. As part of this commitment, we plan to prepare and implement sufficient written policies and checklists which will set forth procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of GAAP and SEC disclosure requirements.
 
We will continue to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures and our internal controls over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and are committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds allow.

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

Biographies of Our Executive Officers and Directors
 
Carl Palmer. Mr. Palmer is the President, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and a Director of the Company. He was the founder of our Company in 1998, innovator of the complete line of Seychelle water filtration products and primary spokesperson worldwide. He is an internationally recognized expert in the field for over 40 years and pioneered the development of the reverse osmosis (RO) home and office pure water business in the U.S. in the late 1970's. That company, Aq-Ro-Matic, was later sold to Coca-Cola in 1973. He developed the cellulose triacetate membrane, a breakthrough technological development in the industry and subsequently, created and sold pure water companies to Coca Cola Los Angeles as noted previously, AMF/Cuno in 1985 and Shaklee in 1989. Also, in the late 1980's Mr. Palmer developed the Best Water reverse osmosis business for Shaklee and sold over $53 million in above-the-counter systems. Carl's 30 years of direct sales experience has led to many significant business relationships, many of which continue today.

Cari Beck. Secretary-Treasurer, HR Manager and Director. From 1992-2002, Mrs. Beck worked as the production coordinator for Krystal Enterprises, one of the largest limousine manufacturers in the world.  During her time at Krystal Enterprises, Mrs. Beck worked collaboratively with major US auto manufacturers to purchase chassis for limousine production.  She was responsible for coordinating all aspects of production and accounts receivable to ensure timely delivery and satisfaction to the customer.  She was instrumental in coordinating the preparation, organization and set up for all quarterly trade shows.  Mrs. Beck worked directly with the Executive Vice President handling the company's national accounts and maintaining inventory levels on all finished products. During her tenure, Krystal Enterprises grew from a company producing 20 vehicles to 150 monthly. For the past seven years Mrs. Beck has consulted for Seychelle (in her role as the trustee of the TAM Trust), with a focus on manufacturing, assembly and process control. Ms. Beck became a Director in April 2016.
 
John Beck. Mr. Beck currently holds the position of Vice President of Operations at Grech Motors, a private company.  He has a history of being a part of a team working to help companies grow.  From 1976-1986, Mr. Beck worked for Quality Bowling Corporation where he started as the sixth employee hired and finished his time there as a purchasing agent in a company that had grown to over 40 employees. In 1983, Mr. Beck purchased his first limousine and started a part-time limousine venture that led to a 30-year career with Krystal Enterprises, a private company.  His responsibilities included sales, marketing, and substantial input on design and production.  Over his 30 years at Krystal Enterprises, sales grew from $150,000 a month during the early 1980's to approximately $10 million a month in sales during the late 1990's.  After Krystal Enterprises was sold in 2011, Mr. Beck retired.  Not long after retiring he began consulting and then was hired on as the Vice President of Operations for Grech Motors. Mr. Beck became a Director in May 2016.
 
Jenevieve Fisher. Ms. Fisher has been devoted, since the age of twenty-two, to helping others negotiate the challenges of dealing with a diagnosis of cancer.  As a cancer survivor of Hodgkin's disease, she has committed herself to bringing health education, encouragement and hope to those living with cancer and their families.  She has been an avid supporter of the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation.  She is also a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, as well as the Northwest Christian Writer's Association.  She has written and film over one hundred health videos.

Gary Hess. Mr. Hess has sixteen years of experience in the water filtration business.  For the past eleven years, he has managed his own engineering firm, Hess & Associates, which specializes in industrial water reclamation with a focus on removing heavy metals and environmental toxins from process water.  His company services and supports some of the largest military Printed Circuit Board manufacturers in the U.S., treating in excess of 2 million gallons of water per day using proprietary chemistry, procedures and equipment.
 
Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires the Company's directors and executive officers, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of the Company's outstanding equity securities to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of common stock and other equity securities of the Company. Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.
 
To the Company's knowledge, there were no Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors or greater than 10% beneficial owners for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018.
 
Code of Ethics for Chief Executive Officer and Senior Financial Officers

On May 20, 2006, the Board of Directors of the Company adopted the Code of Ethics for the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Financial Officers.  The Code is designed to deter wrong-doing and promote honest and ethical behavior, full, fair, timely, accurate and understandable disclosure and compliance with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations.  It is also designed to encourage prompt internal reporting of violations of the Code to an appropriate person and provides for accountability for adherence to the Code.  We will provide to any person without charge, upon written request to our principal executive offices, a copy of our Code.  Any waiver of the Code pertaining to one of our executive officers will be disclosed in a report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC.
 
Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
 
The Company's Bylaws provide that it will indemnify its officers and directors to the full extent permitted by Nevada state law. The Company's bylaws likewise provide that it will indemnify and hold harmless its officers and directors for any liability including reasonable costs of defense arising out of any act or omission taken on behalf of the Company, to the full extent allowed by Nevada law, if the officer or director acted in good faith and in a manner the officer or director reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the corporation.
 
 
 
- 23 -

 
 
In so far as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
