NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Organization and Nature of Operations:
Business Description – Business Activity: Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (the "Company") is a Colorado corporation incorporated on March 20, 2014. The Company is a cannabis consulting company providing services related to cost efficient cannabis cultivation technologies focusing on quality as well as safety, retail operations related to the delivery of cannabis related products, and other related business lines as described in our operating strategic vision outlines below.
Brand Warehouse Development – With recent 8K filings, the Company has signaled that it intends to aggregate new business opportunities into its corporate fabric in a manner that does not diminish the various companies or brands it is partnering with, but rather enhances it. Suitable candidates for consideration will have ongoing operations within various industry segments, such as the Pono Publications and Success Nutrient acquisitions as already noted in the Company’s 8K filings on or about August 12th and October 20th of 2016. Over time, the Company expects to expand its presence within the industry through the development of an ‘intelligent acquisition’ process.
Intelligent Acquisition – This term is meant to define a selection and due diligence process that will enable both the Company as well as the acquisition to benefit mutually in that each may better 1) establish a more stable method of continual valuation through direct contact with the public marketplace wherein with the related growth of the enterprise as a whole it will eventually be able to achieve a higher listing status within the NYSE as a capital markets member based upon prevailing regulations, 2) market themselves collectively thus taking advantage of certain cost savings strategies through shared participation in various events and advertising opportunities, 3) take advantage of other operating and reporting cost efficiencies available to the Company through aggregation of such acquisitions, 4) continue to work develop a full spectrum of products and services deliverable to the general cannabusiness marketplace through careful segmentation of the marketplace as a whole, and 5) continue to work collaboratively within the industry to achieve both transparency as well as a strong positive reputation for ethical behavior when working both internally within its collective as well as externally with others in the industry.
|1.||Liquidity and Capital Resources:|
Cash Flows – During the quarters ending March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company primarily utilized cash and cash equivalents and profits from operations to fund its operations.
Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date. The Company had $161,258 and $351,524 classified as cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.
|2.||Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates:|
Basis of Presentation: These accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for annual financial statements.
Fair Value Measurements: Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability, in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The fair value hierarchy is based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, as follows:
Level 1 – Quoted 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 other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
Our financial instruments include cash, accounts receivable, note receivable, accounts payables and tenant deposits. The carrying values of these financial instruments approximate their fair value due to their short maturities. The carrying amount of our debt approximates fair value because the interest rates on these instruments approximate the interest rate on debt with similar terms available to us. Our derivative liability was adjusted to fair market value at the end of each reporting period, using Level 3 inputs.
Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported therein. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, actual results reported in future periods may be based upon amounts that differ from these estimates.
Accounts receivable: The Company extends unsecured credit to its customers in the ordinary course of business. Accounts receivable related to licensing revenues are recorded at the time the milestone result in the funds being due being achieved, services are delivered and payment is reasonably assured. Licensing revenues are generally collected from 30 to 60 days after the invoice is sent. As of March 31, 2017, and 2016, the Company had accounts receivable of $358,094 and $25,000, respectively. The company wrote off $0 of its accounts receivable in the current quarter. Allowance for doubtful accounts is currently zero as all receivables are less than 60 days old. The company will continue to evaluate the need for recognizing an additional allowance in the future.
AFS Securities: Investments available for sale is comprised of publicly traded stock purchased as an investment. The Company considers the securities to be liquid and convertible to cash in under a year. The Company has the ability and intent to liquidate any security that the Company holds to fund operations over the next twelve months, if necessary, and as such has classified all its marketable securities as short-term. Our investment securities at March 31, 2017 consist of available-for-sale instruments which include $26,948 of equity in publicly traded companies. All our available-for-sale securities are Level 2 due to limited trading volume. Realized gains and losses on these securities will be included in “other income (expense)” in the consolidated statements of income using the specific identification method. Unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, on available-for-sale securities are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (accumulated OCT).
Short term note receivable: Note receivable were comprised of a $250,000 loan with $21,413 of accrued interest for a total loan value of $271,413 issued to the organization that owns Funk Sack, Inc. This loan was extended with the option of negotiating an agreement to acquire the entirety of the company through a stock swap. However, in the fourth quarter of 2016 the Company determined that it would not complete the acquisition of the company and instead will hold the investment and it will be repaid. The loan was issued May 6, 2016 and was is due to be repaid November 1, 2017. As the note is still current and the Funk Sacks organization is continuing to operate and grow this note is considered to be fully collectable.
Other assets: Other assets at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 were $69,894 and $27,479, respectively and as of March 31, 2017 included $4,542 in prepaid rent, $50,852 in prepaid registrations fees for major cannabis events the Company is sponsoring and advertising costs and $14,500 in a security deposit.
Accounts payable: Accounts payable at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 was $0 and $0, respectively.
Accrued tax and other liabilities: Accrued tax and other liabilities at March 31, 2017 and December 2016 were $24,616 and $175. At March 31, 2017 this was comprised of accrued interest expense of $22,339 and $2,276 in accrued expense.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments: The carrying amounts of cash and current assets and liabilities approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these items. These fair value estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect these estimates. Available for sale securities are recorded at current market value as of the date of this report.
Revenue recognition and related allowances: Revenue from licensing services is recognized when the obligations to the client are fulfilled which is determined when milestones in the contract are achieved. Revenue from seminar fees is related to one day seminars and is recognized as earned at the completion of the seminar. All revenue is measured at fair value.
Costs of Services Sold – Costs of services sold are comprised of direct salaries and related expenses incurred while supporting the implementation of licensing agreements and related services.
General & Administrative Expenses – General and administrative expense are comprised of all expenses not linked to the production or advertising of the Company’s services.
Advertising and Marketing Costs: Advertising and marketing costs are expensed as incurred and were $33,484 and $12,492 during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
Stock based compensation: The Company accounts for share-based payments pursuant to ASC 718, “Stock Compensation” and, accordingly, the Company records compensation expense for share-based awards based upon an assessment of the grant date fair value for stock and restricted stock awards using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.
Stock compensation expense for stock options is recognized over the vesting period of the award or expensed immediately under ASC 718 and EITF 96-18 when stock or options are awarded for previous or current service without further recourse. The Company issued stock options to contractors and external companies that had been providing services to the Company upon their termination of services. Under ASC 718 and EITF 96-18 these options were recognized as expense in the period issued because they were given as a form of payment for services already rendered with no recourse.
Share based expense paid to through direct stock grants is expensed as occurred. Since the Company’s stock has become publicly traded, the value is determined based on the number of shares issued and the trading value of the stock on the date of the transaction. Prior to the company’s stock being traded the Company used the most recent valuation. The company recognized $0 in expenses for stock based compensation to employees during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
Income taxes: The Company has adopted SFAS No. 109 – “Accounting for Income Taxes”. ASC Topic 740 requires the use of the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the asset and liability method of ASC Topic 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.
Management fee contracts: In February 2017, the Company entered into a Merger Agreement with Pono Publications Ltd. (“Pono”), as well as a Share Exchange Agreement with Success Nutrients, Inc. (“SN”), each a Colorado corporation, in order to facilitate our acquisition of both of these entities. The ratification of the acquisition of these companies requires the approval of the holders of a majority of the Company’s shareholders, which will be submitted for such approval at the Company’s annual shareholder meeting to be held in May 2017. If approved the relevant agreements provide that the effective date for accounting purposes will be March 1, 2016. Success Nutrients will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. and the business conducted by Pono will be incorporated into a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary, Medicine Man Consulting, Inc., which is also where we will continue to conduct the Company’s consulting service business. In March 2017, the Company integrated Pono Publications and Success Nutrients into its operations including a lease for approximately 10,000 square feet of space located at 6660 East 47th Street, Denver, CO 80216. This integration also included four (4) full time team members as well as several independent contractors. From March 1, 2017 until such time as the acquisition can be complete the Company has agreed to manage the acquirees through a management fee agreement whereby all cash collected will is recognized as revenue and all cash expenses are direct cost of the project. As of March 31, 2017, the management contract resulted in cash collections of approximately $100,000 and cash expenditures of approximately $170,000 resulting in a net loss of $70,257 which was presented on a net basis as a loss in the other income portion of our income statement.
|3.||Recent Accounting Pronouncements|

Upon issuance, each of the notes is immediately convertible at the noteholders election into the company’s common stock at $1.75 per share or 90% of the VWAP of the five days following the notice of conversion, whichever is lower.

During 2015 and 2016 through September 30, 2016, the Company had a verbal agreement with Chineseinvestors.com Inc. and Futurevistion to share employees time while the majority of their salary was covered by these related companies. Medicine Man Technologies also paid the individuals a modest stipend for their time. While this agreement was in place through the balance of this, the 3rd quarter of operations the Company will be adding new employees as well as converting such other employees from these two common contributors directly to its own payroll as described in the subsequent event notes as needed to further its operating as well as growth requirements. It should also be noted that in August of the third quarter one of the ChineseInvestors.COM team members converted to full time employment with the Company increasing the number of full time paid team members to three.
During 2016, the Company received two short term loans bearing 12% annual interest from related parties, which were repaid in full along with interest. The Company borrowed $25,000 from Chineseinvestors.com, Inc. in July, which was repaid along with $250 interest in August. In that same period the Company borrowed $50,000 from Brett Roper, the COO and director, which was repaid along with $1,299 in interest in October.
|9.||Net Income (Loss) per Share|
In accordance with ASC Topic 280 – “Earnings Per Share”, the basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per common share is computed similar to basic loss per common share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. The Company's quarterly earnings for the period ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 basic and diluted earnings/(loss) per share $0.01 and $0.01, respectively.

We disclaim any obligation to update forward looking statements.
We were incorporated on March 20, 2014, in the State of Nevada. On May 1, 2014, we entered into an exclusive Technology License Agreement with Medicine Man Denver, Inc., f/k/a Medicine Man Production Corporation, a Colorado corporation (“Medicine Man Denver”) whereby Medicine Man Denver granted us a license to use all of their proprietary processes they have developed, implemented and practiced at its cannabis facilities relating to the commercial growth, cultivation, marketing and distribution of medical marijuana and recreational marijuana pursuant to relevant state laws and the right to use and to license such information, including trade secrets, skills and experience (present and future) (the “Medicine Man Denver License Agreement”).
We commenced our business on May 1, 2014 and currently generate revenues derived from licensing agreements with cannabis related entities, as well as sponsoring seminars offered to the cannabis industry and other business endeavors related to our core competencies. As of the date of this report we have or have had 45 fee generating clients in 14 different states.
Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (the "Company") is a Colorado corporation incorporated on March 20, 2014. The Company is a cannabis consulting company providing services related to cost efficient cannabis cultivation technologies focusing on quality as well as safety, retail operations related to the delivery of cannabis related products, and other related business lines as described in our operating strategic vision outlines below.
Brand Warehouse Development –We intend to aggregate new business opportunities into our corporate fabric in a manner that does not diminish the various companies or brands we are or intend to partnerwith, but rather enhance it. Suitable candidates for consideration will have ongoing operations within various industry segments, such as the Pono Publications and Success Nutrient acquisitions we have already announced in our Form 8-K filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission dated February 27, 2017 and August 10, 2016. Over time, it is our intention to expand our presence within the cannabis industry through the development of an ‘intelligent acquisition’ process. There are no assurances our efforts will be successful.
Intelligent Acquisition – This term is meant to define a selection and due diligence process that will enable us and an acquisition candidate to benefit mutually in that each may better: 1) establish a more stable method of continual valuation through direct contact with the public marketplace wherein the consolidated enterprise will eventually be able to meet the listing criteria of the NYSE; 2) market themselves collectively to take advantage of certain cost savings strategies through shared participation in various events and advertising opportunities; 3) take advantage of other operating and reporting cost efficiencies available to us through aggregation of such acquisitions; 4) continue to work to develop a full spectrum of products and services deliverable to the general cannabis marketplace through careful segmentation of the marketplace as a whole; and 5) continue to work within the industry to achieve both transparency as well as a strong positive reputation for ethical behavior.
Recent examples of our acquisition initiatives include Pono Publications and Success Nutrients, both Colorado Corporations that are heavily involved in cultivation activities. More specifically, these two acquisitions (once completed noting we have recently entered into a temporary operating agreement that should allow us to effectively bridge the time required to successfully completed these acquisitions while all parties are able to take advantage of common operating element advantages as well as enjoy compensation opportunities driven by this new relationship) will also allow us to offer enhanced cultivation consulting as well as an extraordinary nutrient line that has been developed specifically for cannabis cultivation use.
As a result of these pending acquisitions, Mr. Joshua Haupt (recently referred to as the ‘Steve Jobs of Cannabis Cultivation’ will also be joining our company as our new Chief Cultivation Officer upon successful completion of the acquisition. Josh’s extraordinary cultivation skills are outlined in his Three-A-Light ® publication (www.threealight.com) wherein he fully describes his three pounds a light performance metrics for growers in a non-industrial setting.
The combination of both these new acquisitions is already achieving profitability year to date on revenues (through October of 2016) of just over $1.267M noting both businesses were launched late in FY 2015.
One of the new products developed in cooperation with this new partner is referred to as Cultivation MAX, a service we will be launching shortly designed to increase the efficiency as well as yields of an existing cultivation operation in states where such operations are allowed by law wherein we will be able to achieve a revenue outcome for our client based upon the improvement of those related metrics; in other words our clients will not have any obligation to compensate us for ongoing operations unless they achieve improved cultivation outcomes. In addition to design and deployment revenue (nutrients included) we will receive for these services fees based upon the margin of improvement metrics typical to our industry on a pre-agreed to performance metric reflected in grams per watt, pounds per light, or grams per square foot of flower canopy. While we are optimistic there are no assurances we will increase production. Failure to increase production will result in our inability to generate revenues from these operations.
We believe our new cultivation performance metrics as achieved through this new partnership will provide extraordinary value to the industry as a whole for those able to recognize that cost of operations and quality will eventually define who thrives or just survives in this industry.
It is the Company’s belief that over time and in taking careful measured growth steps, our business will become both an admired as well as emulated model for the cannabusiness industry.
We have never been subject to any bankruptcy proceeding. Our executive offices are located at 4880 Havana Street, Suite 201 South, Denver, Colorado 80239, telephone (303) 371-0387. Our website address is www.medicinemantechnologies.com.
Results of Operations
Results of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016
During the three months ended March 31, 2017, we generated revenues of $541,136, including consulting/licensing fees of $531,030, with the balance of fees arising from our participation in cannabis seminars. In the three months ended March 31, 2016 revenue generated was $199,615 with $194,235 generated through consulting/licensing fees. In addition, the Company entered into a management fee agreement with Pono and Success Nutrients until such time as the acquisition of these entities is approved by our shareholders. This agreement provides that the net of the cash income and expenses related to their business divisions are recognized as a gain or loss in the other income section of our financial statements. This agreement resulted in our generating approximately an additional $100,000 in revenue and approximately $40,000 in revenue invoiced but not collected in the period. If these additional revenues were included in our March 2017 Statement of Income, our total revenues would have been approximately $680,000 in the first quarter. Shareholder ratification of these two acquisitions is expected to occur at our annual meeting of shareholders scheduled for June 3, 2017.
It is anticipated that our efforts to develop our seminar business will be limited in the future as we intend to devote our resources and efforts into the development of our consulting business.
Cost of services, consisting of expense related to delivery of services, was $165,159 during the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to $137,441 during the comparable period in 2016, this increase was largely driven by an increase in wages for the period. Operating expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2017, were $228,885, including general and administrative expense of $195,401, compared to general and administrative expenses of $114,338 incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2016, an increase of $81,063. Increased operating expenses included additional cost incurred related to professional fees incurred during the period, as well as $33,484 in advertising expense incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to advertising expenses of $12,492 during the corresponding period in 2016. Advertising expense increased because of there being more states who had approved or had pending legislation authorizing legalization of cannabis, either medical, recreational or both.
Thus, we generated net income of $111,162 during the three months ended March 31, 2017 (approximately ($0.01) per share), compared to net loss of $113,857 during the three months ended March 31, 2016.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
At March 31, 2017, we had $161,258 in cash on hand.
Net cash used by operating activities was $(31,228) during the three-month period ended March 31, 2017, compared to cash earned from operating activities of $8,577 for the similar period in 2016, a decrease of $39,805. We anticipate we will continue to generate negative cash flow from operations until we complete at least one of several potential acquisitions.
Between November 2014 and March 2016, we undertook a private offering of our Common Stock wherein we sold 270,000 shares of our Common Stock for gross proceeds of $270,000 ($1.00 per share) to 4 non-accredited and 23 “accredited” investors, as that term is defined under the Securities Act of 1933.
As the Company continues to focus on expanding its branding warehouse concept, it will begin to require capital beyond its ability to support through normal cash flow sources. Over time these investments will begin to require less capital and be spread out over an ever-increasing corporate structure integrating various acquisitions as wholly owned subsidiary operations, all supporting a common brand and marketing strategy. Additionally, our ability to evolve into a low cost public company entity will generate even better value to our shareholders as we are eliminating duplication of all the various related costs and services.
From October 2016 through February 2017, we engaged in a private offering of convertible notes to 11 accredited investors (as that term is defined under Rule 501, Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended). These loans provide for a fixed or VW AP conversion option, bear an annual interest rate of 12% (simple), with interest paid quarterly and mature on December 31, 2018. We issued notes totaling $989,777. As of the date of this Report, Convertible Notes aggregating $254,777 were converted to 145,587 shares of our Common Stock. These conversions were computed at both the floor value of $1.75 as well as at a VW AP value as allowable under the terms of the conversion rights. See "Notes to Financial Statements."
The company is currently in process of securing additional capital in return for issuing equity in the company’s common stock. It is expected, though not assured, that this additional cash infusion will provide meet the cash requirements of the company until it will again start generating positive cash flow for its operations. However, if we are unable to secure this financing or generate profits from our operations or elect to expand our operations or otherwise require additional capital, we have no agreement with any third party to provide us the same and there can be no assurances that we will be able to raise any capital, either debt or equity on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. If we require additional capital and are unable to raise the same, it could have a material negative impact on our results of operations.
Although our operations are influenced by general economic conditions, we do not believe that inflation had a material effect on our results of operations during the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We had no off-balance sheet arrangements as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
Critical Accounting Estimates
Our financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We continually evaluate the accounting policies and estimates used to prepare the condensed financial statements. The estimates are based on historical experience and assumptions believed to be reasonable under current facts and circumstances. Actual amounts and results could differ from these estimates made by management. Certain accounting policies that require significant management estimates and are deemed critical to our results of operations or financial position are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 in the Critical Accounting Policies section of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
