Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “goals,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “continues,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to projections of our future financial performance, our anticipated growth and trends in our businesses, uncertain events or assumptions, and other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on management's expectations as of the date of this filing and involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include those described throughout this report and our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, particularly the “Risk Factors” sections of such reports. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made in this Form 10-Q and in other documents we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission that disclose risks and uncertainties that may affect our business. The forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q do not reflect the potential impact of any divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, or other business combinations that had not been completed as of August 20, 2018. In addition, the forward-looking statements in this Form 10-Q are made as of the date of this filing, and we do not undertake, and expressly disclaims any duty, to update such statements, whether as a result of new information, new developments or otherwise, except to the extent that disclosure may be required by law.

1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

DPW Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“DPW” or the “Company”), formerly known as Digital Power Corporation, was incorporated in September 2017. The Company is a diversified holding company owning subsidiaries engaged in the following operating businesses: commercial and defense solutions, commercial lending, cryptocurrency blockchain mining, advanced textile technology and restaurant operations. The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries are Coolisys Technologies, Inc. (“Coolisys”), Digital Power Limited (“DP Limited”), Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd (“Enertec”), Power-Plus Technical Distributors, LLC (“Power-Plus”), Digital Power Lending, LLC (“DP Lending”) and Super Crypto Mining, Inc. (“SC Mining”). The Company also has a controlling interest in Microphase Corporation (“Microphase”) and I. AM, Inc. (“I.AM”). The Company has five reportable segments – North America with operations conducted by Microphase, Coolisys, Power-Plus and DP Lending, Europe with operations through DP Limited, Middle East with operations through Enertec, digital currency blockchain mining through SC Mining and restaurant operations through I.AM.

 

2. LIQUIDITY, GOING CONCERN AND MANAGEMENT’S PLANS

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $703, an accumulated deficit of $43,998 and a negative working capital of $9,744. The Company has incurred recurring losses and reported losses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, totaled $7,525 and $20,617, respectively. In the past, the Company has financed its operations principally through issuances of convertible debt, promissory notes and equity securities. During 2018, the Company continued to successfully obtain additional equity and debt financing and in restructuring existing debt.

 

The Company expects to continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future and needs to raise additional capital to continue its business development initiatives and to support its working capital requirements. In March 2017, the Company was awarded a 3-year, $50 million purchase order by MTIX Ltd. (“MTIX”) to manufacture, install and service the Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement (“MLSE”) plasma-laser system. Currently, the Company has subcontracted out a significant amount of these services to third parties. Management believes that the MLSE purchase order will be a source of revenue and generate significant cash flows for the Company. Management believes that the Company has access to capital resources through potential public or private issuance of debt or equity securities. However, if the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may be required to curtail operations and take additional measures to reduce costs, including reducing its workforce, eliminating outside consultants and reducing legal fees to conserve its cash in amounts sufficient to sustain operations and meet its obligations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might become necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

3. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X and do not include all the information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The Company has made estimates and judgments affecting the amounts reported in our condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially from our estimates. The condensed consolidated financial information is unaudited but reflects all normal adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary to provide a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 17, 2018. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017 was derived from the Company’s audited 2017 financial statements contained in the above referenced Form 10-K. Results of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2018.

Principles of Consolidation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of DPW and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Coolisys, DP Limited, Power-Plus, Enertec, DP Lending and SC Mining and its majority-owned subsidiaries, Microphase and I.AM. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements, in conformity with U.S. GAAP, requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions. The Company's management believes that the estimates, judgments and assumptions used are reasonable based upon information available at the time they are made. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Key estimates include acquisition accounting, fair value of certain financial instruments, reserve for trade receivables and inventories, carrying amounts of investments, fair value of digital currencies, accruals of certain liabilities including product warranties, useful lives and depreciation, and deferred income taxes and related valuation allowance.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the new revenue 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 company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle:

 

·Step 1: Identify the contract with the customer,
·Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract,
·Step 3: Determine the transaction price,
·Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, and
·Step 5: Recognize revenue when the company satisfies a performance obligation.

Sales of Products

 

The Company generates revenues from the sale of its products through a direct and indirect sales force. The Company’s performance obligations to deliver products are satisfied at the point in time when products are received by the customer, which is when the customer has title and the significant risks and rewards of ownership. The Company provides standard assurance warranties that the products function as intended. The Company primarily receives fixed consideration for sales of product. Some of the Company’s contracts with distributors include stock rotation rights after six months for slow moving inventory, which represents variable consideration. The Company uses an expected value method to estimate variable consideration and constrains revenue for estimated stock rotations until it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur. To date, returns have not been material. The Company’s customers generally pay within 30 days from the receipt of a valid invoice.

 

Because the Company’s product sales agreements have an expected duration of one year or less, the Company has elected to adopt the practical expedient in ASC 606-10-50-14(a) of not disclosing information about its remaining performance obligations.

Manufacturing Services

 

The Company provides manufacturing services in exchange for fixed fees. The Company’s performance obligation for manufacturing services is satisfied over time as the Company creates or enhances an asset that the customer controls as the asset is created or enhanced. The Company recognizes revenue over time using a cost to cost method which measures progress based on the costs incurred to total expected costs in satisfying its performance obligation. This method provides a faithful depiction of the progress in providing the manufacturing service because there is a direct relationship between the costs incurred by the Company and the transfer of the manufacturing service to the customer.

 

The period between when the Company transfers its promised good or service to the customer and when the customer pays is one year or less. Therefore, the Company has elected the practical expedient to not adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component.

 

The aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to the performance obligation that is partially unsatisfied as of September 30, 2018 was $48,338. The Company expects to recognize the remaining revenue related to the partially unsatisfied performance obligation over the next two and a half years. The Company will be paid in installments for this performance obligation over the next two and a half years.

 

Blockchain Mining

 

The Company derives its revenue by providing transaction verification services within the digital currency networks of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin. The Company satisfies its performance obligation at the point in time that which the Company is awarded a unit of digital currency through its participation in the applicable network and network participants benefit from the Company’s verification service. In consideration for these services, the Company receives digital currencies which are recorded as revenue, using the closing U. S. dollar price of the related cryptocurrency on the date of receipt. Expenses associated with running the cryptocurrency mining business, such as equipment deprecation and electricity cost are recorded as a component of cost of revenues.

 

Restaurant Operations

 

The Company records revenue from restaurant sales at the time of sale, net of discounts, coupons, employee meals and complimentary meals and gift cards. Restaurant cost of sales primarily includes the cost of good, beverages, and merchandise and disposable paper and plastic goods used in preparing and selling the Company’s menu items, and exclude depreciation and amortization. Vendor allowances received in connection with the purchase of a vendor’s products are recognized as a reduction of the related food and beverage costs as earned.

 

Property and Equipment, Net

 

Property and equipment as well as an intangible asset are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and amortization. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation and amortization are calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, at the following annual rates:

 

    Useful lives (in years)
Cryptocurrency machines and related equipment   3 - 5
Computer, software and related equipment   3 - 5
Office furniture and equipment   5 - 10
Leasehold improvements   Over the term of the lease or the life of the asset, whichever is shorter.

 

Digital Currencies

 

Digital currencies consist of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin received from mining for the Company’s own account. Given that there is limited precedent regarding the classification and measurement of cryptocurrencies under current GAAP, the Company has determined to account for these digital currencies as indefinite-lived intangible assets in accordance with ASC No. 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, for the period covered by this report and in future reports unless and until further guidance is issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).

Indefinite-lived intangible assets are recorded at cost and are not subject to amortization, but shall be tested for impairment annually and more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the asset is impaired. If, at the time of an impairment test, the carrying amount of an intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss in an amount equal to the excess is recognized. Fair value of the digital currencies is based on the quoted market prices. The Company recorded an impairment charge in the amount of $3, which is reported as a component of operating expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Fair value of Financial Instruments

 

In accordance with ASC No. 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, fair value is defined as the exit price, or the amount that would be received for the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date.

 

The guidance also establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. The guidance establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or model-derived valuations. All significant inputs used in our valuations are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated with observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs also include quoted prices that were adjusted for security-specific restrictions which are compared to output from internally developed models such as a discounted cash flow models.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The carrying amounts of financial instruments carried at cost, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivables and accounts and other receivable – related party, investments, notes receivable, trade payables and trade payables – related party approximate their fair value due to the short-term maturities of such instruments.

 

As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the fair value of the Company’s investments were $3,663 and $9,563, respectively, and were concentrated in equity securities of Avalanche International Corp., which we refer to as AVLP, a related party (See Note 9), which are classified as available-for-sale investments. At September 30, 2018, the Company's investment in AVLP included marketable equity securities of $810 and warrants to purchase 12,814,440 shares of AVLP common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share of common stock. At December 31, 2017, the Company's investment in AVLP included marketable equity securities of $826 and warrants to purchase 8,248,440 shares of AVLP common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share of common stock. For investments in marketable equity securities, the Company took into consideration general market conditions, the duration and extent to which the fair value is above cost, and the Company’s ability and intent to hold the investment for a sufficient period of time to allow for recovery of value in the foreseeable future. As a result of this analysis, the Company has determined that its investment in AVLP’s marketable equity securities are valued based upon the closing market price of common stock at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, which resulted in an unrealized gain of $163 and $550, respectively.

At September 30, 2018, the Company held shares of common stock in four companies that it had purchased at the market, for a total cost of $257. In accordance with ASC No. 320-10, these investments are accounted for based upon the closing market prices of the respective common stock at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, resulting in an unrealized gain $109 and $133, respectively.

 

The categorization of a financial instrument within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The following table sets forth the Company’s financial instruments that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy:

 

 

   Fair Value Measurement at September 30, 2018 
   Total   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Investments in common stock and warrants of AVLP – a related party  $3,228   $810   $   $2,418 
Investments in marketable securities   366    366         
Investment in warrants   69            69 
Total Investments  $3,663   $1,176   $   $2,487 

 

 

 

   Fair Value Measurement at December 31, 2017 
   Total   Level 1   Level 2   Level 3 
Investments in common stock and warrants of AVLP – a related party  $7,728   $826   $   $6,902 
Investments in marketable securities   1,835    1,835         
Total Investments  $9,563   $2,661   $   $6,902 

 

We assess the inputs used to measure fair value using a three-tier hierarchy based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market:

 

·Level 1 – inputs include quoted prices for identical instruments and are the most observable.
·Level 2 – inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and observable inputs such as interest rates, currency exchange rates and yield curves.
·Level 3 – inputs are not observable in the market and include management’s judgments about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

  

Net Loss per Share

 

Net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The calculation of the basic and diluted earnings per share is the same for all periods presented, as the effect of the potential common stock equivalents is anti-dilutive due to the Company’s net loss position for all periods presented. The Company has included 317,460 warrants, with an exercise price of $.01, in its earnings per share calculation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Anti-dilutive securities, which are convertible into the Company’s Class A common stock, consist of the following at September 30, 2018 and 2017:

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), (“ASU 2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in ASC 605 - Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”) and most industry-specific guidance throughout ASC 605. The FASB has issued numerous updates that provide clarification on a number of specific issues as well as requiring additional disclosures. The core principle of ASC 606 requires that an entity recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.

 

The Company adopted ASC 606 effective January 1, 2018 to all contracts using the modified retrospective approach. The adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations, equity or cash flows.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-11, Earnings per Share (Topic 260), Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) (“ASU 2017-11”). ASU 2017-11 consists of two parts. The amendments in Part I of this update change the classification analysis of certain equity-linked financial instruments (or embedded features) with down round features. When determining whether certain financial instruments should be classified as liabilities or equity instruments, a down round feature no longer precludes equity classification when assessing whether the instrument is indexed to an entity’s own stock. The amendments also clarify existing disclosure requirements for equity-classified instruments. As a result, a freestanding equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded conversion option) no longer would be accounted for as a derivative liability at fair value as a result of the existence of a down round feature. For freestanding equity classified financial instruments, the amendments require entities that present earnings per share (“EPS”) in accordance with Topic 260 to recognize the effect of the down round feature when it is triggered. That effect is treated as a dividend and as a reduction of income available to common shareholders in basic EPS. Convertible instruments with embedded conversion options that have down round features are now subject to the specialized guidance for contingent beneficial conversion features (in Subtopic 470-20, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options), including related EPS guidance (in Topic 260). The amendments in Part II of this update re-characterize the indefinite deferral of certain provisions of Topic 480 that now are presented as pending content in the Codification, to a scope exception. Those amendments do not have an accounting effect. For public business entities, the amendments in Part I of this update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. For all other entities, the amendments in Part I of this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. If an entity early adopts the amendments in an interim period, any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. The amendments in Part II of this update do not require any transition guidance because those amendments do not have an accounting effect. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures but does not expect it to have a material impact.

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (“ASU 2018-07”). ASU 2018-07 simplifies the accounting for share-based payments granted to nonemployees for goods and services. Under ASU 2018-07, most of the guidance on such payments to nonemployees would be aligned with the requirements for share-based payments granted to employees. The changes take effect for public companies for fiscal years starting after Dec. 15, 2018, including interim periods within that fiscal year. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than an entity’s adoption date of Topic 606. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this standard on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures but does not expect it to have a material impact.

 

FASB, the Emerging Issues Task Force and the SEC have issued certain other accounting standards, updates, and regulations as of September 30, 2018 that will become effective in subsequent periods; however, management does not believe that any of those updates would have significantly affected our financial accounting measures or disclosures had they been in effect during 2018 or 2017, and it does not believe that any of those pronouncements will have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements at the time they become effective.

The Company has made a strategic decision to invest in AVLP, a related party controlled by Philou Ventures, LLC, or Philou, a significant stockholder of the Company. The Company’s investments in AVLP consist of convertible promissory notes, warrants and shares of common stock of AVLP. On September 6, 2017, the Company and AVLP entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (“AVLP Loan Agreement”) with an effective date of August 21, 2017 pursuant to which the Company will provide AVLP a non-revolving credit facility of up to $10,000 for a period ending on August 21, 2019, subject to the terms and conditions stated in the Loan Agreement, including that the Company having available funds to grant such credit. At September 30, 2018, the Company has provided loans to AVLP in the principal amount $6,407 and, in addition to the 12% convertible promissory notes, AVLP has issued to the Company warrants to purchase 12,814,440 shares of AVLP common stock. Under the terms of the AVLP Loan Agreement, any notes issued by AVLP to the Company are secured by the assets of AVLP.

 

The warrants entitle the Company to purchase up to 12,814,440 shares of AVLP common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share for a period of five years. The exercise price of $0.50 is subject to adjustment for customary stock splits, stock dividends, combinations or similar events. The warrant may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis. At September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company recorded an unrealized gain (loss) on its investment in warrants of AVLP of ($1,888) and $4,513, respectively, representing the difference between the cost basis and the estimated fair value of the warrants in the Company’s accumulated other comprehensive income in the stockholder's equity section of the Company’s consolidated balance sheet and as a change in net unrealized gains on securities available-for-sale in the Company’s consolidated statements of comprehensive loss. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s investment in warrants and common stock of AVLP represented $387 and $6,401, respectively, of the Company’s aggregate $1,339 and $6,787, respectively, in net unrealized loss on securities available-for-sale. The Company’s investment in AVLP will be revalued on each balance sheet date. The fair value of the Company’s holdings in the AVLP warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method. The risk-free rate, which ranged between 1.92% and 2.43%, was derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve, matching the term of our investment, in effect at the measurement date. The volatility factor of 80.4% was determined based on historical stock prices for similar technology companies with market capitalizations under $100 million. The warrant valuation is a Level 3 measurement.

In accordance with ASC No. 310, Receivables (“ASC 310”), the Company accounts for its convertible promissory notes in AVLP at amortized cost, which represents the amount at which the convertible promissory notes were acquired, adjusted for accrued interest and accretion of original issue discount and discount attributed to the fair value of the 12,814,440 warrants that the Company received in conjunction with its investment. Interest is accreted using the effective interest method. The Company records interest on an accrual basis and recognizes it as earned in accordance with the contractual terms of the convertible promissory notes, to the extent that such amounts are expected to be collected. The original issue discount of $165 on the New Note and the discount attributed to the fair value of the warrants of $4,306 are being amortized as interest income through the maturity date. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company recorded $535 and $1,454, respectively, of interest income for the discount accretion. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company recorded $18 and $38, respectively, of interest income for the discount accretion As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company recorded contractual interest receivable attributed to the AVLP Notes and AVLP Loan Agreement of $803 and $324, respectively.

 

The Company evaluated the collectability of both interest and principal for the convertible promissory notes in AVLP to determine whether there was an impairment. Based on current information and events, the Company determined that it is probable that it will be able to collect amounts due according to the existing contractual terms. Impairment assessments require significant judgments and are based on significant assumptions related to the borrower’s credit risk, financial performance, expected sales, and estimated fair value of the collateral.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company also acquired in the open market 389,391 shares of AVLP common stock for $371 and 221,333 shares of AVLP common stock for $192, respectively. At September 30, 2018, the closing market price of AVLP’s common stock was $0.94, a decline from $1.75 at December 31, 2017. The Company has determined that its investment in AVLP marketable equity securities are accounted for pursuant to the fair value method and based upon the closing market price of common stock at September 30, 2018, the Company has recognized an unrealized gain of $163.

The Company elected to follow the guidance of ASC No. 321, Equity Securities (“ASC 321”), which provides a measurement alternative to the requirement to carry equity interests at fair value in accordance with ASC 820, Fair value measurement, for certain equity interests without readily determinable fair values. Equity interests measured in accordance with the measurement alternative in ASC 321 are not required to be included within the fair value hierarchy. The Company’s equity investment in Sandstone is recorded at cost. However, any change to the carrying amount will be subsequently adjusted up or down for observable price changes (i.e., prices in orderly transactions for the identical investment or similar investment of the same issuer) and any adjustments to the carrying amount shall be recorded in net income.

Under the Company's 2017 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”), 2016 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2016 Plan”) and the 2012 Stock Option Plan, as amended (the “2012 Plan”) (collectively, the “Plans”), options may be granted to employees, officers, consultants, service providers and directors of the Company. The Plans, as amended, provide for the issuance of a maximum of 7,372,630 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company also has 196,000 outstanding options that were granted between 2009 and 2011 pursuant to the terms of the Company's 2002 Stock Option Plan (the “2002 Plan”). Options granted pursuant to the 2002 Plan expire between September 2008 and February 2021.

 

Options granted under the Plans have an exercise price equal to or greater than the fair value of the underlying common stock at the date of grant and become exercisable based on a vesting schedule determined at the date of grant. Typically, options granted generally become fully vested after four years. Any options that are forfeited or cancelled before expiration become available for future grants. The options expire between 5 and 10 years from the date of grant. Restricted stock awards granted under the Plans are subject to a vesting period determined at the date of grant. As of September 30, 2018, an aggregate of 55,773 of the Company's options are still available for future grant.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company granted 1,000,000 options to its employees from the Plans and also granted 2,897,500 options outside of the Plans. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company granted 560,000 options from the Plans. These options become fully vested after four years. The Company estimated that the grant date fair value of options granted utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $514 and $251, respectively, which is being recognized as stock-based compensation expense over the requisite four-year service period. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company also issued 1,583,059 and 1,336,798, respectively, shares of common stock to its consultants and service providers pursuant to the Plans. The Company estimated that the grant date fair value of these shares of common stock was $2,640 and $742, respectively, which was determined from the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance.

 

The Company has valued the options at their date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This model is dependent upon several variables such as the options’ term, exercise price, current stock price, risk-free interest rate estimated over the expected term and estimated volatility of our stock over the expected term of the options. The risk-free interest rate used in the calculations is based on the implied yield available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent term approximating the expected life of the options as calculated using the simplified method. The estimated volatility was determined based on the historical volatility of our common stock.

The Company has valued the warrants at their date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This model is dependent upon several variables such as the warrants’ term, exercise price, current stock price, risk-free interest rate and estimated volatility of our stock over the contractual term of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate used in the calculations is based on the implied yield available on U.S. Treasury issues with an equivalent term approximating the contractual life of the warrants.

16. ADVANCES ON FUTURE RECEIPTS

 

During the second half of 2017, the Company received funding as a result of entering into multiple Agreements for the Purchase and Sale of Future Receipts pursuant to which the Company sold in the aggregate $4,068 in future receipts of the Company for $2,889. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had repaid $1,526.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company entered into a total of nine additional Agreements for the Purchase and Sale of Future Receipts (collectively, the “Agreements on Future Receipts”) pursuant to which the Company sold up to $5,632 in “future receipts” for a purchase price in the amount of $4,100. The term “future receipts” means cash, check, ACH, credit card, debit card, bank card, charge card or other form of monetary payment. The Agreements on Future Receipts have been personally guaranteed by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and in one instance has also been guaranteed by Philou.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company recorded a discount in the amount of $1,651, in connection with these nine additional agreements, based upon the difference between the amount of future receipts sold and the actual proceeds received by the Company. Under the terms of these agreements, the Company also issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 112,500 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $2.25 per share of common stock and warrants to purchase 162,500 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $2.50 per share of common stock. The Company recorded an additional discount of $258 based on the estimated fair value of these warrants. The Company computed the fair value of these warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. These discounts are reflected as a reduction on the outstanding liability and are being amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the agreement. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of $499 and $2,152, respectively, was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts.

The interest on the February 20, 2018 note in the amount of $150 was paid to the lender prior to entering into the new promissory note. The warrants are exercisable commencing on issuance date for a term of three years. The exercise price of these warrants is subject to adjustment for customary stock splits, stock dividends, combinations and other standard anti-dilution events. The warrants may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis. The Company recorded debt discount in the amount of $604 based on the estimated fair value of these warrants. The Company computed the fair value of these warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The debt discount was amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the debt. During the three and nine months September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of nil and $604, respectively, was recorded from the amortization of debt discount and interest expense of nil and $350 was recorded from the amortization of the OID on the new promissory note.

The 10% Short-Term Notes were due one year from the date of issuance. The amount due pursuant to the 10% Short-Term Notes is equal to the entire original principal amount multiplied by 125% (the “Loan Premium”) plus accrued interest.

   September 30,   December 31, 
   2018   2017

(a)

On May 15, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement to sell (i) a 10% convertible note (the “10% Convertible Note”), (ii) a five-year warrant to purchase 1,111,111 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.35 per share; (iii) a five-year warrant to purchase 1,724,138 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock at an exercise price of $0.87 per share; and (iv) 344,828 shares of the Company’s common stock to an institutional investor. Initially, the 10% Convertible Note was convertible into the Company’s common stock at $0.75 per share, but could only be converted if an event of default thereunder had occurred and not been cured on a timely basis. On September 25, 2018, the Company entered into an agreement to amend the maturity date on the 10% Convertible Note, pursuant to which amendment the amortization schedule of the 10% Convertible Note provides for 13 monthly payments in the amount of $309, and for the fourteenth payment to be in the amount of $1,011, plus accrued and unpaid interest. Each such amortization payment shall be made in cash or Bitcoin. The Company has not made the monthly amortization payments due during September 2018 and October 2018 and this secured 10% convertible note is currently in default. The Company is in negotiations with the investor to amend the payment terms on this secured 10% convertible note.

 

The 10% Convertible Note is in the principal amount of $6,000 and bears interest at 10% simple interest on the principal amount with 50% of the total interest due on the principal payable at the closing and the remaining 50% payable over the term of the 10% Convertible Note. In connection with the financing, the Company agreed to pay the placement agent, Alliance Global Partners, a cash fee of $300,000 and a warrant to purchase 150,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $1.00 per share.

 

The Company computed the fair value of the warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and, as a result of this calculation, recorded debt discount in the amount of $1,398 based on the estimated fair value of the warrants. The Company estimated that the grant date fair value of the shares of common stock was $405, which was determined from the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the dates of issuance. In aggregate, the Company recorded debt discount in the amount of $2,170 based on the relative fair values of the warrants, common stock and debt issuance costs of $367. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of $1,053 and $1,504, respectively, was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts. The fair value of the warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method. The risk-free rate of 2.94% was derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve, matching the term of the warrant, in effect at the measurement date. The volatility factor of 127.9% was determined based on the Company’s historical stock prices.

 

On July 2, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with the institutional investor providing for the issuance of (i) a second 10% convertible note (the “Second 10% Convertible Note”) with a principal face amount of $1,000 which Second 10% Convertible Note was convertible into the Company’s common stock at $0.75 per share and (ii) an additional 400,000 of the Company’s common stock to be issued in connection with the 10% Convertible Note. The Second 10% Convertible Note matures on January 1, 2019.

On August 31, 2018, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with the institutional investor providing for the issuance of a third 10% convertible note (the “Third 10% Convertible Note” and with the 10% Convertible Note and the Second 10% Convertible Note, the “10% Convertible Notes”) with a principal face amount of $2,000, which Third Convertible Note is convertible into 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.40 per share and (ii) an additional 620,000 of the Company’s common stock. The shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the Third 10% Convertible Note will not be issued to the institutional investor until the Company shall have obtained approval of the NYSE American and the Company’s stockholders. The Third 10% Convertible Note matures on February 15, 2019.

 

At the time of issuance of the Third 10% Convertible Note, the closing price of the Company’s common stock was in excess of the conversion price, resulting in a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”). The BCF embedded in the Third 10% Convertible Note is accounted for under ASC No. 470, Debt (“ASC 470”). At issuance, the intrinsic value of the BCF totaled $827, based on the difference between the effective conversion price and the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the commitment date of the transaction, and the relative fair value of the 400,000 shares of common stock was $177. The Company, however, is prohibited from issuing the 400,000 shares of common stock or the shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the Third 10% Convertible Note unless stockholder approval of such issuance of securities is obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules. The Company has not yet received stockholder approval of such share issuances. This provision resulted in a contingent beneficial conversion feature that shall be recognized once the contingency is resolved.

 

The Company recorded debt issuance costs of $200 from the Third 10% Convertible Note. The debt issuance costs are being amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the debt. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of $33 was recorded from the amortization of the debt issuance costs.

 

Pursuant to an amendment dated as of August 31, 2018 to the 10% Convertible Note and the Second 10% Convertible Note, the Company reduced the conversion price to $0.40 from $0.75. The amendment to the embedded conversion options of the 10% Convertible Note and the Second 10% Convertible Note caused a material change in the fair value of the embedded conversion options on these two notes and resulted in a loss on extinguishment of $666. At the time of the amendment, the closing price of the Company’s common stock was in excess of the conversion price, resulting in a BCF. The intrinsic value of the BCF was $1,132 on the 10% Convertible Note and $225 on the Second 10% Convertible Note based on the difference between the effective conversion price and the fair value of the Company’s common stock. The Company, however, is only allowed to issue 8 million shares of common stock pursuant to the 10% Convertible Note and is prohibited from issuing any shares of common stock pursuant to the Second 10% Convertible Note unless stockholder approval of such issuance of securities is obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules. The Company has not yet received stockholder approval of such share issuances. This provision resulted in a contingent beneficial conversion feature that shall be recognized once the contingency is resolved. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of $51 was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts attributed to the portion of the shares currently issuable from the 10% Convertible Note.

 

(b)On December 4, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement to sell a 5% Convertible Note (the “5% Convertible Note”) and 150,000 shares of restricted common stock to an institutional investor. The principal of the 5% Convertible Note and interest thereon was convertible into shares of common stock at $0.60 per share of common stock, subject to adjustments for lower priced issuances, stock splits, stock dividends, combinations or similar events. The 5% Convertible Note was in the principal amount of $550, included an OID of $50 resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $500, accrued interest at 5% simple interest on the principal amount, and was due on August 13, 2018. Interest only payments were due on a quarterly basis and the principal was due on June 3, 2018.

At the time of issuance of the 5% Convertible Note, the closing price of the Company’s common stock was in excess of the conversion price, resulting in a BCF accounted for under ASC 470. At issuance, the intrinsic value of the BCF totaled $244 based on the difference between the effective conversion price and the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the commitment date of the transaction. The intrinsic value of the BCF exceeded the proceeds allocated to the relative fair value of the 5% Convertible Note. The BCF was amortized to interest expense over the term of the 5% Convertible Note using the effective interest method. The valuation of the BCF was calculated based on the effective conversion price compared with the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance of the 5% Convertible Note.

 

In the aggregate, the Company recorded debt discount in the amount of $550 based on the relative fair values of the 150,000 shares of common stock of $256, BCF of $244 and OID of $50. The debt discount is being amortized as non-cash interest expense over the term of the debt. During the year ended December 31, 2017, non-cash interest expense of $381 was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts. In January 2018, the 5% Convertible Note was converted into 921,645 shares of the Company’s common stock based upon the contractual rights included in the 5% Convertible Note (See Note 21).

 

(c)On August 3, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement to sell a 12% Convertible Note (the “12% Convertible Note”) and a warrant to purchase 666,666 shares of common stock to an accredited investor. The principal of the 12% Convertible Note may be converted into shares of common stock at $0.55 per share and under the terms of the Warrant, up to 666,666 shares of common stock may be purchased at an exercise price of $0.70 per share.

 

The 12% Convertible Note was in the principal amount of $400, included an OID of $40 resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $360, accrued interest at 12% simple interest on the principal amount, and was due on August 13, 2018. Interest only payments were due on a quarterly basis and the principal was due on August 3, 2018. The principal may be converted into shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.55 per share.  

 

The Company computed the fair value of the 666,666 warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and, as a result of this calculation, recorded debt discount in the amount of $167 based on the estimated fair value of the 666,666 warrants.

 

The BCF embedded in the 12% Convertible Note is accounted for under ASC 470. At issuance, the intrinsic value of the BCF totaled $187. The Company, however, was prohibited from issuing shares of common stock pursuant to the 12% Convertible Note until stockholder approval of such issuance of securities was obtained as required by applicable NYSE American listing rules. The Company received stockholder approval for the share issuances on December 28, 2017. The intrinsic value of the BCF was amortized to interest expense over the term of the 12% Convertible Note using the effective interest method. The valuation of the BCF was calculated based on the effective conversion price compared with the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance of the 12% Convertible Note. In aggregate, the Company recorded debt discount in the amount of $394 based on the relative fair values of the 666,666 warrants, BCF and OID of $40. During the year ended December 31, 2017, non-cash interest expense of $212 was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts.

 

On December 28, 2017, principal and accrued interest of $198 and $5, respectively, on the 12% Convertible Note was satisfied through the issuance of 368,760 shares of the Company’s common stock and the remaining balance was converted into 377,678 shares of the Company’s common stock on January 10, 2018 (See Note 21). The fair value of the warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method. The risk-free rate of 1.79% was derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve, matching the term of the warrant, in effect at the measurement date. The volatility factor of 107.3% was determined based on the Company’s historical stock prices.

(d)On April 16, 2018, the Company entered into securities purchase agreements to sell (i) a 12% convertible note (the “12% April 2018 Convertible Note”), (ii) a five-year warrant to purchase 993,588 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $1.30 per share; and (iii) 200,926 shares of the Company’s common stock to three institutional investors. The 12% April 2018 Convertible Note is convertible into common stock at $0.70 per share, but may only be converted if an event of default thereunder has occurred and not been cured on a timely basis.

 

The 12% April 2018 Convertible Note is in the principal amount of $1,722, included an OID of $172 resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $1,550 and bears interest at 12% simple interest on the principal amount. The Company is required to make monthly principal and interest payments until the 12% April 2018 Convertible Note is satisfied in full on October 16, 2018.

 

The Company computed the fair value of the warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and, as a result of this calculation, recorded debt discount in the amount of $539 based on the estimated fair value of the warrants. The Company estimated that the grant date fair value of the shares of common stock was $129, which was determined from the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, non-cash interest expense of $522 and $885, respectively, was recorded from the amortization of debt discounts. The fair value of the warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option-pricing method.

The Complaint alleges violations of state law and breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and gross mismanagement by the individual defendants as, in the view of the plaintiffs, the Company has entered into poorly advised loan transactions and related party transactions. The Company and the individual defendants believe that these claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend themselves. Based on the Company’s assessment of the facts underlying the claims, the uncertainty of litigation, and the preliminary stage of the case, the Company cannot estimate the reasonably possible loss or range of loss that may result from this action. However, an unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

21. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Preferred Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue 25,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock $0.001 par value. The Board of Directors has designated 500,000 shares as Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Stock”), 460,000 shares as Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”), 378,776 shares as Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series D Preferred Stock”) and 10,000 shares as Series E Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series E Preferred Stock”). The rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions on the remaining authorized 23,651,224 shares of Preferred Stock have not been determined. The Company’s Board of Directors is authorized to create a new series of preferred shares and determine the number of shares, as well as the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to or imposed upon any series of preferred shares. As of September 30, 2018, there were 125,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock and no other shares of Preferred Stock issued or outstanding.

 

On April 24, 2018, pursuant to the terms of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement, Philou purchased an additional 25,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock in consideration of the cancellation of short-term advances due to Philou in the aggregate amount of $250. In addition, Philou received warrants to purchase 357,143 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.70 per share of common stock, which have been classified as equity instruments. The Company determined that the estimated relative fair value of these warrants, which are classified as equity, was $142 using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Since the warrants were classified as equity securities, the Company allocated the $250 purchase price based on the relative fair values of the Series B Preferred Stock and the warrants following the guidance in ASC No. 470, Debt.

 

The Series B Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible at any time, in whole or in part, at the option of Philou, into shares of common stock at a fixed conversion price, which is subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations or similar events, of $0.70 per share. As the effective conversion price of the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock on a converted basis was below the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance, it was determined that these discounts represent beneficial conversion features, which were valued at $108 based on the difference between the effective conversion price and the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of issuance. These features are analogous to preference dividends and are recorded as a non-cash return to preferred shareholders through accumulated deficit.

 

Common Stock

 

Common stock confers upon the holders the rights to receive notice to participate and vote in the general meeting of shareholders of the Company, to receive dividends, if and when declared, and to participate in a distribution of surplus of assets upon liquidation of the Company. The Class B common stock carries the voting power of 10 shares of Class A common stock.

I.AM agreed to pay the Manager a management fee for each restaurant, (a) for each month that such restaurant is not profitable, $5 per month, or (b) for each month that such restaurant achieves a gross profit, the greater of 6% of the gross revenue for such month, or $5, provided that in the event that payment of the 6% management fee would cause such restaurant to become unprofitable, the Manager will only be entitled to receive as much of the 6% management fee, if greater than $5, as would cause such restaurant to break even. Pursuant to the Management Agreement, if I.AM terminates the Management Agreement without cause, I.AM will be required to pay to the Manager the sum of $1,000. DP Lending entered into a guarantee of payments solely with respect to this termination provision.

 

On October 11, 2018, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with a certain institutional investor providing for the issuance of (i) an Original Issue Discount Promissory Note in the principal face amount of $565 due December 8, 2018, for a purchase price of $510, and (ii) 400,000 shares of common stock to be issued by the Company, subject to approval of the NYSE American.

GENERAL

 

We are a growth company seeking to increase our revenues through acquisitions. Our strategy reflects our management and Board’s current philosophy which we began implementing upon the change in control that was completed on September 22, 2016. Our acquisition and development target strategy include companies that have developed a “new way of doing business” in mature, well-developed industries experiencing changes due to new technology; companies that may become profitable or more profitable through efficiency and reduction of costs; companies that are related to our core business in the commercial and defense industries; and companies that will enhance our overall revenues. It is our goal to substantially increase our gross revenues in the near future.

 

We were originally a solution-driven organization that designed, developed, manufactured and sold high-grade customized and flexible power system solutions for the medical, military, telecom and industrial markets. Although we intend to seek growth through acquisitions, we will continue to focus on high-grade and custom product designs for the commercial, medical and military/defense markets, where customers demand high density, high efficiency and ruggedized products to meet the harshest and/or military mission critical operating conditions.

 

We have operations located in Europe through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Digital Power Limited (“DP Limited”), Salisbury, England, which operates under the brand name of “Gresham Power Electronics” (“Gresham”). DP Limited designs, manufactures and sells power products and system solutions mainly for the European marketplace, including power conversion, power distribution equipment, DC/AC (Direct Current/Active Current) inverters and UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) products. Our European defense business is specialized in the field of naval power distribution products.

On November 30, 2016, DPW Holdings formed Digital Power Lending, LLC (“DP Lending”), a wholly-owned subsidiary. DP Lending is engaged in providing commercial loans to companies throughout the United States to provide them with operating capital to finance the growth of their businesses. The loans will primarily be short-term, ranging from six to twelve months, but may be of longer duration.

 

On June 2, 2017, DPW Holdings purchased 56.4% of the outstanding equity interests of Microphase Corporation (“Microphase”). Microphase is a design-to-manufacture original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) industry leader delivering world-class radio frequency (“RF”) and microwave filters, diplexers, multiplexers, detectors, switch filters, integrated assemblies and detector logarithmic video amplifiers (“DLVA”) to the military, aerospace and telecommunications industries. Microphase is headquartered in Shelton, Connecticut.

 

On April 25, 2017, DPW Holdings formed Coolisys Technologies, Inc. (“Coolisys”), a wholly-owned subsidiary. The Company intends to operate its existing businesses in the customized and flexible power system solutions for the medical, military, telecom and industrial markets, other than the European markets which are primarily served by DP Limited, in Coolisys.

 

Further, on September 1, 2017, Coolisys acquired all of the outstanding membership interests in Power-Plus Technical Distributors, LLC, a California limited liability company (“Power-Plus”). Power-Plus is an industrial distributor of value added power supply solutions, UPS systems, fans, filters, line cords, and other power-related components. In addition to its current business, Power-Plus will serve as an extended sales organization for the Company’s overall flexible power system solutions.

 

On December 31, 2017, Coolisys entered into a share purchase agreement with Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (“MICT”), a Delaware corporation, Enertec Management Ltd., an Israeli corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of MICT (“EML” and, together with MICT, the “Seller Parties”), and Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd. (“Enertec”), an Israeli corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of EML, pursuant to which Coolisys acquired Enertec (the “Acquisition”). Enertec is Israel’s largest private manufacturer of specialized electronic systems for the military market. On May 23, 2018, Coolisys acquired Enertec for an aggregate cash purchase price of $4,851.

 

On May 23, 2018, DP Lending entered into and closed a securities purchase agreement to acquire 98.1% of I.AM, Inc. (“I.AM”), for a purchase price of $1. I.AM owns and operates the Prep Kitchen brand restaurants located in the San Diego area. I.AM owed DP Lending $1,715 in outstanding principal, pursuant to a loan and security agreement, between I.AM and DP Lending, that I.AM used to acquire the restaurants. The purchase agreement provides that, as I.AM repays the outstanding loan to DP Lending in accordance with the loan agreement, DP Lending will on a pro rata basis transfer shares of common stock of I.AM to David J. Krause, up to an aggregate of 471 shares.

 

We are a Delaware corporation with our corporate office located at 201 Shipyard Way, Suite E, Newport Beach, California 92663. Our phone number is 510-657-2635 and our website address is www.dpwholdings.com.

Revenues

 

Our revenues increased by $5,124, or 159%, to $8,344 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, from $3,220 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in revenue was primarily due to our acquisition of 98.1% of the outstanding equity interests of I.AM on May 23, 2018, combined with our acquisitions of all of the outstanding equity interests of Power-Plus on September 1, 2017 and Enertec on May 23, 2018. Revenues generated by these three acquisitions during the three months ended September 30, 2018, represented $3,877 of our increase in revenues. Excluding the increase in revenues that were generated by our recent acquisitions, the Company generated revenues of $4,468, which represented an increase of $1,248. As discussed below, the increase of $944 from the three months ended September 30, 2017, was primarily due to our cryptocurrency mining operations and on revenue from the manufacture of the Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement (“MLSE”) plasma-laser system.

Revenues, cryptocurrency mining

 

In January 2018, we formed Super Crypto Mining, Inc. (“SC Mining”), a wholly-owned subsidiary. SC Mining was established to operate our newly formed cryptocurrency business, which is pursuing a variety of digital currencies. We are mining the top three cryptocurrencies for our own account. These cryptocurrencies include Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized $590 of revenues generated by SC Mining.

 

Revenues, related party

 

During the three months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized $353 in revenues resulting from our relationship with MTIX Limited, a company formed under the laws of England and Wales (“MTIX”). MTIX was acquired by AVLP on August 22, 2017 and is therefore deemed to be a related party. In March 2017, the Company was awarded a 3-year, $50 million purchase order by MTIX to manufacture, install and service the Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement (“MLSE”) plasma-laser system. Management believes that the MLSE purchase order will be a source of revenue and generate significant cash flows for the Company. However, at September 30, 2018, $3,888 was reflected on the financial statements as accounts receivable, related party.

 

Gross Margins

 

Gross margins decreased to 24.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to 34.0% for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in gross margins was partially attributable to the lower margin revenue of $353 from MTIX, a related party, with gross margins of 22.6% combined with negative margins of (158.9%) on revenues of $590 at SC Mining. The negative gross margins at SC Mining are attributed to monthly recurring fixed costs at our colocation facilities which temporarily exceed the revenues from our mining operations while we place our miners in service. If we had not recognized revenue, and the related cost of revenue, from SC Mining and our contract with MTIX, then our adjusted gross margins for the three months ended September 30, 2018 would have been 38.9%. The increase in gross margins from 34.0% to 38.9% is mainly attributable to higher gross margins related to restaurant operations.

 

Engineering and Product Development

 

Engineering and product development expenses increased by $28 to $334 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 from $306 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase is primarily attributed to our acquisition of Enertec. Due to the timing of the acquisition of Enertec, May 23, 2018, during the three months ended September 30, 2018 Enertec reported $58 in engineering and product development expenses and was excluded from the prior-year period.

 

Selling and Marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses were $791 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $423 for the three months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $368. Our acquisition of Power-Plus, Enertec and I.AM accounted for $131, $133 and $85, respectively, of the increase in selling and marketing expenses. The remaining increase of $19 is attributed to an increase in personnel costs directly attributed to sales and marketing personnel at our UK based operations.

 

General and Administrative

 

General and administrative expenses were $5,088 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $1,685 for the three months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $3,403. Our acquisitions of Enertec and I.AM accounted for $1,399 of the increase in general and administrative expenses. The adjusted increase of $2,004 from the comparative prior period was mainly due to higher stock-based compensation expenses, an increase in legal and audit costs, an increase in investor relationship costs and hiring of additional consultants to build an infrastructure in anticipation of our future growth and the increase in cost attributed to the hiring of a new Chief Financial Officer. The remaining increase in general and administrative expenses is due to various costs, none of which are significant individually.

 

 4 
 

 

·

In aggregate, we incurred $1,352 of stock-based compensation during the three months ended September 30, 2018. Of this amount, $697 was from issuances of equity-based awards pursuant to our Plans and $655 was from stock, options and warrants which were issued outside the Plans. It has been our policy to allocate the majority of stock-based compensation to general and administrative expense. During the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, and inclusive of equity-based awards issued outside the Plans, we recorded $1,352 and $517, respectively, of stock-based compensation in general and administrative expense. 

 

·

Beginning during the quarter ended December 31, 2016, we spent significant effort on expanding our investor base and on hiring additional consultants to assist building an infrastructure to support our anticipated growth. These efforts were continued during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and resulted in an increase of $113 in costs attributed to investor relations and other consulting fees.

 

·

During January 2018 we hired a new Chief Financial Officer and in September 2017 we hired a senior executive to assist in management at Coolisys. These two hires resulted in an overall increase in payroll expense of approximately $98 during the three months ended September 30, 2018.

 

·

Finally, in January 2018 we established SC Mining, our digital currency blockchain mining subsidiary and DP Lending, our commercial lending subsidiary. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, general and administrative costs attributed to these subsidiaries were $534.

 

Interest (expense) income, net

 

Interest expense was $3,359 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $753 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2018 is primarily related to the amortization of debt discount, in the aggregate amount of $3,034, resulting from original issue discount from the issuance of warrants in conjunction with the sale of debt instruments in the aggregate amount of $27,673. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, as a result of these issuances, non-cash interest expense of $3,034 was recorded from the amortization of debt discount and debt financing costs. The remaining increase in interest expense was due to an increase in the amount of the Company’s total borrowings and which was primarily offset by interest income and the accretion of original issue discount pursuant to the Loan and Security Agreement entered into on September 6, 2017, between the Company and AVLP (“AVLP Loan Agreement”) of $712.

 

Operating Loss

 

The Company recorded an operating loss of $4,189 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to an operating loss of $1,318 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in operating loss is mostly attributable from the increase of general and administrative expenses.

 

Net Loss

 

For the foregoing reasons, our net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2018, was $7,525 compared to a net loss of $2,071 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. After taking into consideration the loss attributable to the non-controlling interest of the minority shareholders of Microphase during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, of $74 and $104, respectively, and preferred dividends of nil and $27 during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, the net loss available to common shareholders during the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, was $7,451 and $1,994, respectively.

 

 5 
 

 

As reflected in our consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our reported net loss is comprised of non-cash charges of $4,710 and $1,206, respectively. A summary of these non-cash charges is as follows:

 

   For the Three Months Ended 
   September 30, 
   2018   2017 
Interest expense – debt discount  $3,034   $652 
Stock-based compensation   1,352    517 
Depreciation and amortization   918    54 
Interest expense on conversion of promissory notes to common stock       0 
Accretion of original issue discount on notes receivable – related party   (594)   (17)
Non-cash items included in net loss  $4,710   $1,206 
           

 

Other comprehensive loss

 

Other comprehensive loss was $1,420 and $1, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Other comprehensive loss for the three months ended September 30, 2018, which decreased our equity, reflects the impact of the weakening of the British Pound on the equity of DP Limited combined with unrealized losses in our investments in marketable securities, primarily in the warrants that we received as a result of our investment in Avalanche International, Corp., or AVLP, a related party. During the three months ended September 30, 2017, the effect of the foreign currency adjustment of the British Pound was offset by unrealized losses in our investments in marketable securities.

Revenues

 

Our revenues increased by $14,314 or 215% to $20,984 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, from $6,670 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in revenue was primarily due to our four acquisitions completed during 2017 and 2018. Revenues generated by these four acquisitions during the nine months ended September 30, 2018, represented $8,783 of our increase in revenues. Excluding the increase in revenues that were generated by our recent acquisitions, the Company generated revenues of $12,202, which represented an increase of $5,532. As discussed below, the increase of $5,532 from the nine months ended September 30, 2017, was primarily due to our cryptocurrency mining operations and on revenue from the manufacture of the Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement (“MLSE”) plasma-laser system.

Revenues, cryptocurrency mining

 

In January 2018, we formed SC Mining. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized $1,546 of revenues generated by SC Mining.

 

Revenues, related party

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized $3,912 in revenues resulting from our relationship with MTIX. In March 2017, the Company was awarded a 3-year, $50 million purchase order by MTIX to manufacture, install and service the MLSE plasma-laser system.

 

Gross Margins

 

Gross margins decreased to 22.8% for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to 38.0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in gross margins was partially attributable to the lower margin revenue of $3,912 from MTIX, a related party, with gross margins of 21.6% combined with negative margins of (118.8%) on revenues of $1,546 at SC Mining. The negative gross margins at SC Mining are attributed to monthly recurring fixed costs at our colocation facilities which temporarily exceed the revenues from our mining operations while we place our miners in service. If we had not recognized revenue, and the related cost of revenue, from SC Mining and our contract with MTIX, then our adjusted gross margins for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 would have been 38.6%. The increase in gross margins from 38.0% to 38.6% is mainly attributable to an increase in costs of our commercial products sold in our U.S. operations, which historically have had much greater gross margins, offset by higher gross margins related to restaurant operations.

 

Engineering and Product Development

 

Engineering and product development expenses increased by $246 to $1,044 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 from $798 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase is primarily attributed to our acquisition of Microphase. Due to the timing of the acquisitions of Microphase, June 2, 2017, and Enertec, May 23, 2018. Enertec engineering and product development costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $58. During the prior-year period, Microphase reported $173 in engineering and product development expenses as opposed to $354 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

Selling and Marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses were $2,291 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $1,045 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $1,246. Our acquisition of Microphase, Power-Plus, Enertec and I.AM accounted for $95, $559, $231 and $99, respectively, of the increase in selling and marketing expenses. The remaining increase of $262 is attributed to an increase in personnel costs directly attributed to sales and marketing personnel at our U.S. and UK based operations. Throughout the quarter ended March 31, 2017, we augmented our sales and marketing team in the U.S. with the addition of a Vice President of Business Development and two regional sales managers. The increase in selling and marketing expenses is partially attributed to the increase in salaries and benefits and travel related costs for the three new sales and marketing positions. Due to the timing of these personnel additions, the full cost was only partially realized during the three months ended March 31, 2017. Further, during December 2017, we hired a Sales Director at our UK operations.

 

General and Administrative

 

General and administrative expenses were $12,698 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $4,240 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $8,458. Our acquisitions of Microphase, Enertec and I.AM accounted for $2,294 of the increase in general and administrative expenses. The adjusted increase of $6,164 from the comparative prior period was mainly due to higher stock-based compensation expenses, an increase in legal and audit costs, an increase in investor relationship costs and hiring of additional consultants to build an infrastructure in anticipation of our future growth and the increase in cost attributed to the hiring of a new Chief Financial Officer. The remaining increase in general and administrative expenses is due to various costs, none of which are significant individually.

·

In aggregate, we incurred $4,163 of stock-based compensation during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. Of this amount, $2,235 was from issuances of equity-based awards pursuant to our Plans and $1,928 was from stock, options and warrants which were issued outside the Plans. It has been our policy to allocate the majority of stock-based compensation to general and administrative expense. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, and inclusive of equity-based awards issued outside the Plans, we recorded $4,133 and $1,225, respectively, of stock-based compensation in general and administrative expense.

 

·

We experienced an aggregate increase of $284 in audit and legal fees due to an overall increase in the operations conducted and the level of complexity and significant number of the transactions entered into during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

·

Beginning during the quarter ended December 31, 2016, we spent significant effort on expanding our investor base and on hiring additional consultants to assist building an infrastructure to support our anticipated growth. These efforts were continued during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and resulted in an increase of $848 in costs attributed to investor relations and other consulting fees.

 

·

During January 2018 we hired a new Chief Financial Officer and in September 2017 we hired a senior executive to assist in management at Coolisys. These two hires resulted in an overall increase in payroll expense of approximately $330 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

·

Finally, we recently established SC Mining, our digital currency blockchain mining subsidiary, and DP Lending, our commercial lending subsidiary. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, general and administrative costs attributed to these subsidiaries were $1,050.

 

Interest (expense) income, net

 

Interest expense was $9,378 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $1,367 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 is primarily related to the amortization of debt discount, in the aggregate amount of $8,813 resulting from original issue discount on the issuance of warrants in conjunction with the sale of debt instruments in the aggregate amount of $27,673. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as a result of these issuances, non-cash interest expense of $8,813 was recorded from the amortization of debt discount and debt financing costs. The remaining increase in interest expense was due to an increase in the amount of the Company’s total borrowings and which was primarily offset by interest income and the accretion of original issue discount pursuant to the Loan and Security Agreement entered into on September 6, 2017, between the Company and AVLP (“AVLP Loan Agreement”) of $1,931.

 

Operating Loss

 

The Company recorded an operating loss of $11,326 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to an operating loss of $3,549 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in operating loss is mostly attributable from the increase of general and administrative expenses.

 

Net Loss

 

For the foregoing reasons, our net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $20,617 compared to a net loss of $4,916 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. After taking into consideration the loss attributable to the non-controlling interest of the minority shareholders of Microphase of $218 and $216 and preferred dividends of $108 and $319 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, the net loss available to common shareholders during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, was $20,507 and $5,054, respectively.

As reflected in our consolidated statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, our reported net loss is comprised of non-cash charges of $13,195 and $2,619, respectively. A summary of these non-cash charges is as follows:

 

 

   For the Nine Months Ended 
   September 30, 
   2018   2017 
Interest expense – debt discount  $8,813   $1,239 
Stock-based compensation   4,163    1,269 
Depreciation and amortization   1,743    134 
Interest expense on conversion of promissory notes to common stock       13 
Accretion of original issue discount on notes receivable – related party   (1,524)   (36)
Non-cash items included in net loss  $13,195   $2,619 
           

 

Other comprehensive income (loss)

 

Other comprehensive income (loss) was ($6,998) and $98, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Other comprehensive loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, which decreased our equity, reflects the impact of the weakening of the British Pound on the equity of DP Limited combined with unrealized losses in our investments in marketable securities, primarily in the warrants that we received as a result of our investment in AVLP, a related party. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the effect of the foreign currency adjustment from the weakening of the British Pound was partially offset by unrealized losses in our investments in marketable securities.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

On September 30, 2018, we had cash and cash equivalents of $703. This compares with cash and cash equivalents of $1,478 at December 31, 2017. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to cash provided by financing activities being slightly in excess of the amount of cash used in operating and investing activities.

 

Net cash used in operating activities totaled $9,430 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to net cash used by operating activities of $1,577 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the increase in net cash used in operating activities compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was mainly due to the net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $20,617. The net loss was partially offset by a number of non-cash charges, the amortization of debt discount of $8,813 and stock-based compensation of $4,163, an increase in accounts receivable, related party of $3,517 and accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1,923 and decreases in our accounts receivable of $876.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $19,916 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $4,384 of net cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase of the net usage of cash from investing activities was primarily attributed to the purchase of property and equipment at SC Mining, the investment in AVLP, the acquisition of Enertec and investments in debt and equity securities.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $28,791 and $5,194 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The financing activities primarily related to the sale of 21,241,911 shares of common stock through a registered direct offering and from our ATM Offering for net proceeds of $18,059, net proceeds from the Company’s debt financings and from advances of future receipts of $27,673 which was offset by payments on debt instruments of $20,088 and proceeds from the exercise of options and warrants of $965.

 

Historically, we have financed our operations principally through issuances of convertible debt, promissory notes and equity securities. During 2018, as reflected below, we continued to successfully obtain additional equity and debt financing and in restructuring existing debt.

We expect to continue to incur losses for the foreseeable future and will be required to raise additional capital to continue to support our working capital requirements. We believe that the MLSE purchase order contract of $50 million and revenue generated by SC Mining will generate meaningful revenue and corresponding cash in 2018. In addition, we have been successful over the last 12 months in raising capital to support our working capital requirements. We anticipate that we will continue to raise capital through public and private equity offerings, debt financings, or other means. If we are unable to secure additional capital, we may be required to curtail our current operations and take additional measures to reduce costs expenses, including reducing our workforce, eliminating outside consultants, ceasing or reducing our due diligence of potential future acquisitions, including the associated legal fees, in order to conserve cash in order to sustain operations and meet our obligations.

  

Based on the above, these matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

In our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, we identified the critical accounting policies which affect our more significant estimates and assumptions used in preparing our consolidated financial statements.  The basis for developing the estimates and assumptions within our critical accounting policies is based on historical information and known current trends and factors.  The estimates and assumptions are evaluated on an ongoing basis and actual results have been within our expectations.  We have not changed these policies from those previously disclosed in our Annual Report.

 

ITEM 3.          QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

        Not applicable for a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4.           CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We have established disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, with the assistance of other members of the Company's management, have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report and has determined that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2018 due to certain material weaknesses as described herein.

A material weakness is a control deficiency (within the meaning of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Auditing Standard No. 2) or combination of control deficiencies that result in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected. Management has identified the following two material weaknesses:

 

(i)a lack of sufficient internal accounting resources to provide reasonable assurance that information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure and

 

(ii)a lack of segregation of duties to ensure adequate review of financial statement preparation.

 

 14 
 

 

Planned Remediation

 

Management, in coordination with the input, oversight and support of our Board of Directors, has identified the measures below to strengthen our control environment and internal control over financial reporting.

 

During January 2018 we hired a new Chief Financial Officer and engaged the services of a financial accounting advisory firm. During September 2018 we hired a Chief Accounting Officer to tasked with expanding and monitoring the Company’s internal controls, to provide an additional level of review of complex financial issues and to assist with financial reporting. Further, until we expand our internal accounting department, the Chairman of the Audit Committee shall perform the following:

 

·assists with documentation and implementation of policies and procedures and monitoring of controls,
·reviews all anticipated transactions that are not considered in the ordinary course of business to assist in the early identification of accounting issues and ensure that appropriate disclosures are made in the Company’s financial statements.

 

We are currently working to improve and simplify our internal processes and implement enhanced controls, as discussed above, to address the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting and to remedy the ineffectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting.

 

Except as detailed above, during the most recent fiscal quarter 2018 there were no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1.           LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

On July 31, 2018 a shareholder derivative complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against the Company as the nominal defendant, as well as its current directors and a former director styled Ethan Young and Greg Young, Derivatively on Behalf of Nominal Defendant, DPW Holdings, Inc. v. Milton C. Ault, III, Amos Kohn, William B. Horne, Jeff Bentz, Mordechai Rosenberg, Robert O. Smith, and Kristine Ault and DPW Holdings, Inc., as the nominal defendant (Case No.: 2:18-cv-6587) (the “Complaint”). No hearings have been scheduled as of the date hereof.

 

The Complaint alleges violations of state law and breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and gross mismanagement by the individual defendants as, in the view of the plaintiffs, the Company has entered into poorly advised loan transactions and related party transactions. The Company and the individual defendants believe that these claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend themselves. Based on the Company’s assessment of the facts underlying the claims, the uncertainty of litigation, and the preliminary stage of the case, the Company cannot estimate the reasonably possible loss or range of loss that may result from this action. However, an unfavorable outcome may have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

ITEM 1A.         RISK FACTORS

 

The risks described in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” in our 2017 Form 10-K, could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations, and the trading price of our common stock could decline. These risk factors do not identify all risks that we face - our operations could also be affected by factors that are not presently known to us or that we currently consider to be immaterial to our operations. Due to risks and uncertainties, known and unknown, our past financial results may not be a reliable indicator of future performance and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results or trends in future periods. The Risk Factors section of our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K remains current in all material respects.

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

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, pursuant to the Company’s 2017 Stock Incentive Plan, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,583,059 shares of its common stock as payment for services to its consultants. The shares were valued at $2,640, an average of $1.67 per share.
