NOTE 5 – BRIDGE FINANCING – CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTES WITH ASSOCIATED WARRANTS

Between June and November 2016, the Company issued eleven convertible promissory notes with associated warrants in a private placement to accredited investors for total gross proceeds of $837,000. Three of the notes were to related parties for proceeds totaling $222,000, including the extinguishment of $70,000 worth of related party payables. The convertible notes have a maturity of one year, bear an annual interest rate of 8% and can be converted at the option of the holder at a conversion price of $0.025 per share. In addition, the convertible notes will automatically convert if a qualified equity financing of at least $3 million occurs before maturity and such mandatory conversion price will equal the effective price per share paid in the qualified equity financing. In addition to the convertible notes, the investors received 27.9 million warrants (7.4 million to the above mentioned related parties) with an exercise price of $0.03 and a term of the earlier of three years or upon a change of control. The Company evaluated the various financial instruments under ASC 480 and ASC 815 and determined no instruments or features required fair value accounting. Therefore, in accordance with ASC 470-20-25-2, the Company allocated the proceeds between the convertible notes and warrants based on their relative fair values. This resulted in an allocation of $452,422 to the warrants and $384,368 to the convertible notes. After such allocation, the Company evaluated the conversion option to discern whether a beneficial conversion feature existed based upon comparing the effective exercise price of the convertible notes to the fair value of the shares they are convertible into. The Company concluded a beneficial conversion feature existed and measured such beneficial conversion feature at $384,368. Accordingly, the debt discount associated with these notes was $836,790. Such discount was amortized using the effective interest rate method over the term (one year) of the convertible notes. For the quarter ended June 30, 2018 the amortization of this discount and the discount associated with the extension warrants (see below) was zero, because it was fully amortized at March 31, 2018. Accrued interest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was $14,462.  Cumulative accrued interest at June 30, 2018 was $56,996 after the conversion of three of the notes with a principal balance of $480,000 plus accrued interest of $73,012. The remaining Bridge note balance at June 30, 2018 was $357,000.

Upon maturity of eight of the eleven promissory notes in June 2017, the Company issued 3,225,000 extension warrants (equal to 25% of the original warrant amount) to the holders of the notes to extend the terms to January 15, 2018. The Company evaluated this modification including considering the fair value of the warrants issued and concluded that extinguishment accounting was required as the present value of future cash flows from the new note, including the fair value of the warrants issued to extend, exceeded the present value of future cash flows of the old note by more than 10%. The fair value of the warrants was deemed to be $50,701 and such amount was recognized immediately as a loss on extinguishment of debt. The fair value of the warrants was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

In July and August 2017, the three remaining promissory notes issued in July, August and November 2016 were extended until January 15, 2018 and issued 3,750,000 extension warrants (equal to 25% of the original warrant amount). The Company evaluated this transaction including considering the fair value of the warrants issued and concluded that modification accounting was required as the present value of future cash flows from the new note, including the fair value of the warrants issued to extend, are less than 10% of the present value of future cash flows of the old note. When an instrument is modified, any incremental increase in value (in this case the warrants) should be added to the discount of the notes and such discount should be amortized to interest expense using the effective interest rate method over the new remaining life of the note. The fair value of the warrants, $38,946, was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

Upon maturity on January 15, 2018 of the eleven promissory notes, the Company issued 2,790,000 extension warrants (equal to 10% of the original warrant amount) to the holders of the notes to extend the term to April 16, 2018. Three of the notes were converted prior to June 30th and three notes were converted after quarter end. The remaining bridge note holders are working with the Company to extend or convert their notes. The Company evaluated this transaction including considering the fair value of the warrants issued and concluded that extinguishment accounting was required as the present value of future cash flows from the new note, including the fair value of the warrants issued to extend, exceeded the present value of future cash flows of the old note by more than 10%. The fair value of the warrants was deemed to be $217,141 and such amount was recognized immediately as a loss on extinguishment of debt. The fair value of the warrants was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

On October 16, 2017, the Company issued a convertible promissory note with 1,000,000 shares of restricted stock and 1,100,000 warrants in a private placement to an accredited investor for $100,000 in proceeds. The warrants have a five-year term and an exercise price of $0.10. The promissory note has a face value of $110,000, which includes 10% original issue discount (“OID”), and incurs a one-time upfront interest charge of six percent. The holder of the note has the option to convert the note into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.02 per share. Approximately $250,000 of additional funding is available under similar terms if the Company and the lender mutually agree to further tranches. The Company evaluated the various financial instruments under ASC 480 and ASC 815 and determined no material instruments or features required fair value accounting. Therefore, in accordance with ASC 470-20-25-2, the Company allocated the proceeds between the convertible note, restricted common stock, and warrants based on their relative fair values. This resulted in an allocation of $21,287 to the restricted stock, $20,175 to the warrants and $58,538 to the convertible note. After such allocation, the Company evaluated the conversion option to discern whether a beneficial conversion feature existed based upon comparing the effective exercise price of the convertible note to the fair value of the shares it is convertible into. The Company concluded a beneficial conversion feature existed and measured such beneficial conversion feature at $58,538. Accordingly, at October 16, 2017, the debt discount associated with these notes was $110,000. Such discount will be amortized using the effective interest rate method over the term (seven months) of the convertible note. For the nine months ended June 30, 2018 amortization of this discount totaled $110,000 and is included in interest expense in the statement of operations. Accrued interest expense for the nine months ended June 30, 2018 is $6,600. On April 16, 2018 this note, and accrued interest was paid in full by the issuance of 5.8 million shares of common stock.

On December 15, 2017, the Company issued a convertible promissory note with 1,000,000 shares of restricted stock and 1,100,000 warrants in a private placement to an accredited investor for $100,000 in proceeds. The warrants have a five-year term and an exercise price of $0.10. The promissory note has a face value of $110,000, which includes 10% original issue discount (“OID”), and incurs a one-time upfront interest charge of six percent. The holder of the note has the option to convert the note into shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.02 per share. Approximately $150,000 of additional funding is available under similar terms if the Company and the lender mutually agree to further tranches. The Company evaluated the various financial instruments under ASC 480 and ASC 815 and determined no material instruments or features required fair value accounting. Therefore, in accordance with ASC 470-20-25-2, the Company allocated the proceeds between the convertible note, restricted common stock, and warrants based on their relative fair values. This resulted in an allocation of $27,807 to the restricted stock, $27,212 to the warrants and $44,981 to the convertible note. After such allocation, the Company evaluated the conversion option to discern whether a beneficial conversion feature existed based upon comparing the effective exercise price of the convertible note to the fair value of the shares it is convertible into.
