NOTE 2 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In accordance with GAAP, these interim statements do not contain all of the disclosures normally required in annual statements. In addition, the results of operations of interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full year. Accordingly, these interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited annual financial statements and accompanying notes for the year ended December 31, 2016.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts within the financial statements and disclosures thereof. Actual results could differ from these estimates or assumptions.
The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity date of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
The Company’s main sources of revenue are comprised of sales and licensing of branded products, operational consulting, leasing, and advisory services. The Company recognizes revenue when all of the following criteria are met: evidence of an arrangement exists such as a signed contract, delivery has occurred, the price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. This will usually be in the form of a receipt of customer acceptance and satisfaction with delivered product, or in the case of development and service revenue, when services have been performed.
Deferred revenue represents cash payments received before revenue is earned; the corresponding costs are also deferred until such revenue is ultimately recognized.
Research and Development Costs
Research and development costs are charged to operations as incurred.
Fixed assets are stated at cost. Depreciation is provided on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets. When assets are retired or disposed, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gains or losses are included in income. Repairs and maintenance are charged to expense in the period incurred.
Impairment of Long Lived Assets
The Company evaluates the recoverability of its fixed assets and other assets in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 360-10-15, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. Impairment of long-lived assets is recognized when the net book value of such assets exceeds their expected cash flows, in which case the assets are written down to fair value, which is determined based on discounted future cash flows or appraised values.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company follows the provisions of ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, to measure the fair value of its financial instruments, and ASC 825, Financial Instruments, for disclosures on the fair value of its financial instruments. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three levels of fair value hierarchy defined by ASC 820 are:
The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash and accounts payable approximate their fair values due to the short maturity of these instruments.
Extinguishment of Liabilities
The Company accounts for extinguishment of liabilities in accordance with ASC 405-20, Extinguishments of Liabilities. When the conditions for extinguishment are met, the liabilities are written down to zero and a gain or loss is recognized.
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation using the fair value method as set forth in ASC 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation, which requires a public entity to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an equity award based on the fair value of the award on the grant date, with limited exceptions. Such value will be incurred as compensation expense over the period an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award, usually the vesting period. No compensation cost is recognized for equity awards for which employees do not render the requisite service.
The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between the financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities, and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent management concludes it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the consolidated statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date.
ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how companies should recognize, measure, present, and disclose in their financial statements uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. The Company did not take any uncertain tax positions and had no adjustments to unrecognized income tax liabilities or benefits for the nine months and year ended September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.
Related Party Transactions
The Company follows ASC 850, Related Party Disclosures, for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.
In accordance with ASC 850, the Company’s financial statements include disclosures of material related party transactions, other than compensation arrangements, expense allowances, and other similar items in the ordinary course of business, as well as transactions that are eliminated in the preparation of financial statements.
The Company reports comprehensive income and its components following guidance set forth by ASC 220, Comprehensive Income, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the consolidated financial statements. There were no items of comprehensive income applicable to the Company during the period covered in the financial statements.
Earnings Per Share
Earnings per common share is computed pursuant to ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing net income by the sum of the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding plus the weighted average number of potentially dilutive securities during the period.
As of September 30, 2017 and 2016, there were 6,748,898 and 9,825,000 potentially dilutive securities in the form of options and warrants. Such securities had an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per share, and in accordance with ASC 260, were excluded from the diluted net income per share calculation. For that reason, the calculations of basic and fully diluted net income per share were identical for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. These options and warrants may dilute earnings per share in the future.
Commitments and Contingencies
Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. In accordance with ASC 450, Contingencies, the Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and if the assessment indicates that it is probable and the amount of the liability can be estimated, such estimated liability is accrued. Otherwise, contingent liabilities are disclosed unless considered remote.
While not assured, management does not believe, based upon information available at this time, that a loss contingency will have material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Risk and Uncertainties
The Company is subject to risks common to companies operating within the legal and medical marijuana industries, including, but not limited to, federal laws, government regulations and jurisdictional laws.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior periods’ data to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on reported income (losses).
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and does not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial condition or the results of its operations.
The entire disclosure for all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
