NOTE 1 – BASIS OF OPERATIONS

 

The unaudited financial statements included herein have been prepared, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The financial statements and notes are presented as permitted on Form 10-Q and do not contain certain information included in the Company’s annual statements and notes. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the March 31, 2016 Form 10-K filed with the SEC, including the audited financial statements and the accompanying notes thereto. While management believes the procedures followed in preparing these financial statements are reasonable, the accuracy of the amounts is in some respects dependent upon the facts that will exist, and procedures that will be accomplished by the Company later in the year.

 

These unaudited financial statements reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the operations and cash flows for the periods presented.

 

Nature of Business

 

On October 29, 2013, the Company entered into a strategic alliance with Bacterial Robotics, LLC (Bacterial Robotics). Bacterial Robotics owns certain patents and/or other intellectual property related to the development of genetically modified micro-organisms (GMOs) and GMOs tailored to perform one or more specific functions, one such GMO being adopted to clean polluting molecules from nuclear waste, such GMO being referred herein as the existing BactoBot Technology (the BR Technology). Bacterial Robotics is developing a whitepaper to deliver to the Company for acceptance. Upon acceptance by the Company, the parties will form a strategic relationship through the formation of a joint venture in which the Company will be the majority and controlling owner which will use the NuclearBot Technology to further the growth of the nuclear wastewater treatment market. The intent is for Bacterial Robotics to issue a 10-year license agreement. In connection with the strategic alliance agreement, the Company issued a warrant to purchase 75,000,000 shares of its common stock (of which 23,134,118 warrants were cancelled pursuant to the December 22, 2016 transfer agreement with Open Therapeutics, LLC) valued at $1,100,000 and paid an additional $50,000 in cash. The Company fully impaired this as of March 31, 2014, as there was no value in the agreement.

 

On November 25, 2013, the Company executed a definitive agreement to acquire Pilus Energy, LLC (“Pilus”), an Ohio limited liability company and a developer of alternative cleantech energy platforms using proprietary microbial solutions that creates electricity while consuming polluting molecules from wastewater. Pilus is converging digester, fermenter, scrubber, and other proven technologies into a scalable Electrogenic Bioreactor (“EBR”) platform. This technology is the basis of the Pilus Cell™. The EBR harnesses genetically enhanced bacteria, also known as bacterial robots, or BactoBots™, that remediate water, harvest direct current (“DC”) electricity, and produce economically important gases. The EBR accomplishes this through bacterial metabolism, specifically cellular respiration of nearly four hundred carbon and nitrogen molecules. Pilus’ highly metabolic bacteria are non-pathogenic. Because of the mediated biofilm formation, these wastewater-to-value BactoBots resist heavy metal poisoning, swings of pH, and survive in a 4-to-45-degree Celsius temperature range. Additionally, the BactoBots are anaerobically and aerobically active, even with low BOD/COD.

 

On January 28, 2014, the Company acquired patents from Pilus. As a condition of the acquisition, Pilus will get one seat on the board of directors, and the shareholders of Pilus received a warrant to purchase 100,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company, which represented a fair market value of approximately $2,000,000. In addition, the Company paid Bacterial Robotics, LLC (“BRLLC”), formerly the parent company of Pilus, $50,000 on signing the memorandum of understanding and $50,000 at the time of closing. The only asset Pilus had on its balance sheet at the time of the acquisition was a patent. The Company determined that the value of the acquisition on January 28, 2014 would be equal to the value of cash paid to Pilus plus the value of the 100,000,000 warrants they issued to acquire Pilus. Through March 31, 2014, the Company amortized the patent over its estimated useful life, then on March 31, 2014, the Company conducted its annual impairment test and determined that the entire unamortized balance should be impaired as the necessary funding to further develop the patent was not available at that time.

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF OPERATIONS (CONTINUED)

 

On December 22, 2016, the Company, entered in a membership interest transfer agreement with Open Therapeutics, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company (“Open Therapeutics” formerly Bacterial Robotics LLC and Microbial Robotics, LLC), whereby the Company sold 80% of its membership interest in Pilus which included the patents. Open Therapeutics agreed to terminate and cancel 80% of the unexercised portion of the warrant to purchase 28,917,647 shares (or 23,134,118 warrants) of the Company’s common stock (issued on January 28, 2014). Open Therapeutics will pay 20% of the net profit generated, to the Company from the previous year’s earnings after the initial $75,000 of profit (reflected as a contingent liability on the consolidated balance sheet). The Company further agreed it would vote its 20% membership interest in Pilus Energy in the same manner that Open Therapeutics votes its membership interest on all matters for which a member vote is required.

 

On November 15, 2016, the Company announced that it will form a new wholly owned subsidiary focused on the development, marketing and distribution of products that target muscle tension. The subsidiary will be called ColluMauxil Therapeutics LLC (“ColluMauxil”), which is based on the Latin terms for neck relief – “collum” and “auxilium.” The Company has filed for trademarks in association with the business with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Company plans to develop, market, distribute and potentially license a broad array of products and technologies that may help individuals who are affected by muscle tension. The Company has already identified potential products and technologies of interest and is actively working towards the goal of creating an innovative product line to launch the business activities of ColluMauxil. The Company believes that one of its most important strengths is its access to and relationships with potentially substantial distribution systems and networks. The Company intends to capitalize on distribution opportunities and will continually update shareholders on such developments. The Company intends on developing a product that specifically targets muscle tension in the neck, shoulder, and upper back. The Company envisions that this product will incorporate a roll-on delivery system (“Roll-On Product”) which is easier to apply to a specific area on the body. The Company also plans to develop a Roll-On Product that incorporates CBD Oil (“Cannabis Oil”), which is a legal alternative to THC oil, and it is available for sale in all states as well as around the world. Cannabis Oil is widely believed to provide relief to individuals who suffer from muscle tension, tenderness, and pain. Both contemplated Roll-On Products will be branded under the ColluMauxil.

 

Products will be developed for and distributed to the retail market but there can be no guaranty that any revenue will ever be generated. The Company believes it can raise the necessary funds to develop and begin distribution of its first muscles tension product for approximately $200,000, which it hopes to obtain through equity financing. The Company believes none of the contemplated products to be developed under the ColluMauxil brand will require approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

 

On December 23, 2016, the Company, entered into a non-exclusive, 12 month, license agreement (the “License Agreement”) with Cleveland, Ohio based cosmetics products firm Ice + Jam LLC (“Ice + Jam”). Under terms of the License Agreement, the Company will market Ice + Jam’s proprietary Cupuacu Butter lip balm, sold under the trademark HERMAN and the two companies will evenly share (“50% / 50%”) any profits through the Company’s marketing, sales, and distribution efforts. The Company will pay the production costs for all product it sells to retail customers or distributors. The Company paid a one-time upfront non-refundable license fee of $9,810 in cash and agreed to an additional payment of common shares of Company stock. The Company agreed to issue 5,000,000 common shares which had a value of $27,500, based on the closing price of the stock on the day the Company entered into the agreement ($0.005 per share). The cost of the shares will be prorated over the life of the license. The Company further paid $2,190 as a prepaid deposit on future inventory for the purchase of 1,500 units at unit cost of $1.46. As of December 31, 2016, none of the units have been completed therefore the Company has recorded the payment as a prepaid asset. The agreement may be extended for an additional 12 months based on mutual agreement. The two companies reserve the right to request amendment of the License Agreement at any point during the effective duration.

 

Certain additional risk factors relating to the new business line are further described in Part II, Item 1A “Risk Factors” below in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Going Concern

 

As indicated in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred net losses of $2,106,574 and $1,320,389 for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Management’s plans include the raising of capital through equity markets to fund future operations and cultivating new license agreements or acquiring ownership in technology companies. Failure to raise adequate capital and generate adequate sales revenues could result in the Company having to curtail or cease operations. Additionally, even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses, acquire new license agreements or ownership interests in life science companies and generate adequate revenues, or the agreements entered into recently are unsuccessful, there can be no assurances that the revenues will be sufficient to enable it to develop business to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. However, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. These condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts and activities of Tauriga Sciences, Inc. and its wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, Tauriga Canada, Inc. All inter-company transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when realized or realizable, and when the earnings process is complete, which is generally upon the shipment of products.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

Commencing with the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the Company considers the U.S. dollar to be its functional currency. Prior to March 31, 2012, the Company considered the Canadian dollar to be its functional currency. Assets and liabilities were translated into U.S. dollars at year-end exchange rates. Statement of operations amounts were translated using the average rate during the year. Gains and losses resulting from translating foreign currency financial statements were included in accumulated other comprehensive gain or loss, a separate component of stockholders’ deficit.

 

Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of reporting cash flows, cash equivalents include investment instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less. At December 31, 2016, the Company had no cash at any financial institution which exceeded the total FDIC insurance limit of $250,000. To reduce its risk associated with the failure of such financial institution, the Company evaluates at least annually the rating of the financial institution in which it holds deposits. The Company had no cash equivalents as of December 31, 2016.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory consisted of raw materials, production in progress and finished goods and is stated at the lower of cost or market determined by the first-in, first-out method. The Company sold off all of its segments that had inventory during the year ended March 31, 2016.

 

Property and Equipment and Depreciation

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost and is depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Routine maintenance, repairs and replacement costs are expensed as incurred and improvements that extend the useful life of the assets are capitalized. When property and equipment is sold or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is recognized in operations.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets consisted of licensing fees and a patent prior to being impaired which were stated at cost. Licenses were amortized over the life of the agreement and patents were amortized over the remaining life of the patent at the date of acquisition.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

The Company computes per share amounts in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 260 Earnings per Share (“EPS”) which requires presentation of basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is computed by dividing the income (loss) available to Common Stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is based on the weighted-average number of shares of Common Stock and Common Stock equivalents outstanding during the periods; however, potential common shares are excluded for period in which the Company incurs losses, as their effect is anti-dilutive. For the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the three months ended December 31, 2016 the basic and fully diluted earnings per share were the same as the Company had a loss.

 

The following chart shows the number of common share equivalents outstanding for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015:

 

December 31, 2016 December 31, 2015
(Weighted Avg) (Weighted Avg)
Common shares issued and outstanding 1,353,863,842 951,174,483
Common share equivalents 395,980,612 316,038,571
Total fully diluted common shares 1,749,844,454 1,267,213,054

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for Stock-Based Compensation under ASC 718 “Compensation-Stock Compensation”, which addresses the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services, with a primary focus on transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions. ASC 718-10 requires measurement of cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award (with limited exceptions). Incremental compensation costs arising from subsequent modifications of awards after the grant date must be recognized.

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation awards to non-employees in accordance with ASC 505-50, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. Under ASC 505-50, the Company determines the fair value of the warrants or stock-based compensation awards granted as either the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. Any stock options or warrants issued to non-employees are recorded in expense and an offset to additional paid-in capital in shareholders’ equity/(deficit) over the applicable service periods using variable accounting through the vesting dates based on the fair value of the options or warrants at the end of each period.

 

The Company issues stock to consultants for various services. The costs for these transactions are measured at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The value of the common stock is measured at the earlier of (1) the date at which a firm commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached or (2) the date at which the counterparty’s performance is complete. The Company recognized consulting expense and a corresponding increase to additional paid-in-capital related to stock issued for services.

 

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

 

The Company has adopted ASC 220 effective January 1, 2012 which requires entities to report comprehensive income (loss) within a continuous statement of comprehensive income.

 

Comprehensive income (loss) is a more inclusive financial reporting methodology that includes disclosure of information that historically has not been recognized in the calculation of net income (loss).

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets, primarily fixed assets, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets might not be recoverable. The Company will perform a periodic assessment of assets for impairment in the absence of such information or indicators. Conditions that would necessitate an impairment assessment include a significant decline in the observable market value of an asset, a significant change in the extent or manner in which an asset is used, or a significant adverse change that would indicate that the carrying amount of an asset or group of assets is not recoverable. For long-lived assets to be held and used, the Company would recognize an impairment loss only if its carrying amount is not recoverable through its undiscounted cash flows and measures the impairment loss based on the difference between the carrying amount and estimated fair value.

 

Research and Development

 

The Company expenses research and development costs as incurred. Research and development costs were $106,485 for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $0 for the nine months ended December 31, 2015. The Company is continually evaluating products and technologies in the natural wellness space, including its focus on muscle tension.. As the Company investigates and develops relationships in these areas resultant expenses for trademark filings, license agreements, product development and design materials will be expensed as research and development. Some costs will be accumulated for subsidiaries prior to formation of entities.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC 820 Fair Value Measurements defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosure about fair value measurements.

 

The following provides an analysis of financial instruments that are measured subsequent to initial recognition at fair value, grouped into Levels 1 to 3 based on the degree to which fair value is observable:

 

Level 1- fair value measurements are those derived from quoted prices (unadjusted in active markets for identical assets or liabilities);

 

Level 2- fair value measurements are those derived from inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices); and

 

Level 3- fair value measurements are those derived from valuation techniques that include inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

 

Financial instruments classified as Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets include cash.

 

These condensed consolidated financial instruments are measured using management’s best estimate of fair value, where the inputs into the determination of fair value require significant management judgment to estimation. Valuations based on unobservable inputs are highly subjective and require significant judgments. Changes in such judgments could have a material impact on fair value estimates. In addition, since estimates are as of a specific point in time, they are susceptible to material near-term changes. Changes in economic conditions may also dramatically affect the estimated fair values.

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of December 31, 2016 and 2015. The respective carrying value of certain financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. These financial instruments include cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses.

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

Derivatives are recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet at fair value. The conversion features of the convertible debentures are embedded derivatives and are separately valued and accounted for on the consolidated balance sheet with changes in fair value recognized during the period of change as a separate component of other income/expense. Fair values for exchange-traded securities and derivatives are based on quoted market prices. The pricing model we use for determining fair value of our derivatives is the binomial pricing models. Valuations derived from this model are subject to ongoing internal and external verification and review. The model uses market-sourced inputs such as interest rates and stock price volatilities. Selection of these inputs involves management’s judgment and may impact net income. During the year ended March 31, 2016, the Company utilized an expected life ranging from 91 days to 311 days based upon the look-back period of its convertible debentures and notes and volatility of 125%. During the year ended March 31, 2015, the Company utilized an expected life ranging from 66 days to 325 days based upon the look-back period of its convertible debentures and notes and volatility in the range of 166% to 196%. As a result of the May 28, 2015, 7% Convertible Redeemable Note with a principal amount of $104,000 with a maturity date of May 28, 2016 (the “Union Note”) which contains an anti-ratchet clause for the conversion of this Union Note, the Company recorded a derivative liability in the amount of $200,058 (as a result the entire note was discounted).

 

The Company also recorded a derivative liability as a result of the July 14, 2015 issuance of a 12% Convertible Redeemable Note with the principal amount of $96,000 issued with an original issue discount of $16,000. The derivative liability recorded on this note was $153,326 (as a result the entire note was discounted).

 

On August 3, 2016, the Company recorded a derivative liability as a result of the issuance of a 12% Convertible Redeemable Note with the principal amount of $48,000 issued with an original issue discount of $8,000. The derivative liability recorded on this note was $48,871 (as a result the entire note was discounted). As a result of the issuance of this note containing more beneficial terms of conversion, the Union Note will now be convertible at the lower of the lesser of (a) sixty percent (60%) multiplied by the lowest closing price as of the date a notice of conversion is given (which represents a discount rate of forty percent (40%)) or (b) one half penny ($0.005). On November 7, 2016 the noteholder (Group 10) converted this note into 44,000,000 common shares at a total value of $50,160 ($0.00114) which included $2,160 of accrued interest. As a result of this conversion the derivative liability was eliminated with a corresponding adjustment to additional paid in capital in the amount of $15,540 after taking effect to all fair value adjustments up through the date of conversion.

 

On November 7, 2016, the Company recorded a derivative liability as a result of the issuance of a 12% Convertible Redeemable Note with the principal amount of $45,000 issued with an original issue discount of $7,000. The derivative liability recorded on this note was $45,820 (as a result the entire note was discounted).

 

In the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company recognized a loss on the fair value of the derivative liability in the amount of $102,134 bringing the fair value of the derivative liability to $804,410. In the year ended March 31, 2016, the Company recognized a loss on the fair value of the derivative liability in the amount of $277,700.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method, future tax liabilities and assets are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the amounts reported in the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.

 

Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted income tax rates expected to apply when the asset is realized or the liability settled. The effect of a change in income tax rates on future income tax liabilities and assets is recognized in income in the period that the change occurs. Future income tax assets are recognized to the extent that they are considered more likely than not to be realized.

 

ASC 740 “Income Taxes” clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements. This standard requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position. If the more-likely-than-not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements.

 

As a result of the implementation of this standard, the Company performed a review of its material tax positions in accordance with recognition and measurement standards established by ASC 740 and concluded that the tax position of the Company does not meet the more-likely-than-not threshold as of December 31, 2016.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update (ASU) No. 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230), Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments”. The amendments in this update provided guidance on eight specific cash flow issues. This update is to provide specific guidance on each of the eight issues, thereby reducing the diversity in practice in how certain transactions are classified in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 31, 2017. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is assessing the impact, if any, of implementing this guidance on its financial position, results of operations and liquidity.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issues ASU No. 2016-09, “Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718)”, or ASU No. 2016-09. The amendments of ASU No. 2016-09 were issues as part of the FASB’s simplification initiative focused on improving areas of GAAP for which cost and complexity may be reduced while maintaining or improving the usefulness of information disclosed within the financial statements. The amendments focused on simplification specifically with regard to share-based payment transactions, including income tax consequences, classification of awards as equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. The guidance in ASU No. 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted. The Company will evaluate the effect of ASU 2016-09 for future periods as applicable.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. This classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months regardless of their classification. Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases. The new guidance will be effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period and is applied retrospectively. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently in the process of assessing the impact the adoption of this guidance will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2014, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern” (“ASU No. 2014-15”). The provisions of ASU No. 2014-15 require management to assess an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern by incorporating and expanding upon certain principles that are currently in U.S. auditing standards. Specifically, the amendments (1) provide a definition of the term substantial doubt, (2) require an evaluation every reporting period including interim periods, (3) provide principles for considering the mitigating effect of management’s plans, (4) require certain disclosures when substantial doubt is alleviated as a result of consideration of management’s plans, (5) require an express statement and other disclosures when substantial doubt is not alleviated, and (6) require an assessment for a period of one year after the date that the financial statements are issued (or available to be issued). The amendments in this ASU are effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2014, August 2015 and May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, ASU 2015-14, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers, Deferral of the Effective Date”, and ASU 2016-12, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers, Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients”, respectively, which implement ASC Topic 606. ASC Topic 606 outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance under US GAAP, including industry-specific guidance. It also requires entities to disclose both quantitative and qualitative information that enable financial statements users to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The amendments in these ASUs are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods therein. Early adoption is permitted for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016. These ASUs may be applied retrospectively with a cumulative adjustment to retained earnings in the year of adoption. The Company s assessing the impact, if any, of implementing this guidance on its financial position, results of operations and liquidity.

License Agreements:

 

Immunovative Therapies, Ltd.

 

On December 12, 2011, the Company entered into a License Agreement (the “License Agreement”) with Immunovative Therapies, Ltd., an Israeli Corporation (“ITL”), pursuant to which the Company received an immediate exclusive and worldwide license to commercialize all product candidates (the “Licensed Products”) based on ITL’s current and future patents and a patent in-licensed from the University of Arizona. The license granted covers two experimental products for the treatment of cancer in clinical development called AlloStim TM and Allo Vaz TM (“Licensed Products”).

 

On January 8, 2013, the Company received from ITL, a notice by which ITL purported to terminate the License Agreement dated December 9, 2011 between the Company and ITL (the “ITL Notice”), along with alleged damages. It is the Company’s position that ITL breached the License Agreement by delivering the ITL Notice and, that prior to the ITL Notice, the License Agreement was in full force and, on January 17, 2013 and that the Company had complied in all material respect with the License Agreement therefore the Company believes that there are no damages to ITL. As such, on January 17, 2013, the Company filed a lawsuit against ITL, which included the request for various injunctive relief against ITL for damages stemming from this breach. On February 19, 2013, the Company and ITL entered into a settlement agreement whereby the parties have agreed to the following: (1) the Company submitted a letter to the Court advising the Court that the parties had reached a settlement and that the Company is withdrawing its motion, (2) ITL paid the Company $20,000, (3) ITL issued to the Company, ITL’s share capital equivalent to 9% of the issued and outstanding shares of ITL (3,280,000 shares), (4) the Company changed its name and (5) the settling parties agree that the license agreement is terminated. No value has been assigned to the ITL shares received, as they are deemed to be worthless. The Company, based upon its evaluation of the ITL financial statement, considered its investment in ITL to be impaired as the ITL Company had negative net worth and the funds advanced were being utilized for research, development and testing. During the year ended March 31, 2016, the Company sold the 3,280,000 shares for $125,000 which is recorded in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Patents:

 

Pilus Energy, LLC

 

The Company, through the acquisition of Pilus Energy on January 28, 2014, acquired a patent to develop cleantech energy using proprietary microbiological solution that creates electricity while consuming polluting molecules from wastewater. On July 15, 2016, the Company was notified by its patent attorney, that the maintenance fee is due in the issue of US Patent # 8,354,267. The final deadline to pay the fee to avoid abandonment is January 15, 2017. If the Company does not make this payment it will lose the patent permanently.

 

On December 22, 2016, the Company, entered in a membership interest transfer agreement with Open Therapeutics, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company (“Open Therapeutics” formerly Bacterial Robotics LLC and Microbial Robotics, LLC), whereby the Company sold 80% of its membership interest in Pilus. Open Therapeutics agreed to terminate and cancel 80% of the unexercised portion of the warrant to purchase 28,917,647 shares (or 23,134,118 warrants) of the Company’s common stock (issued on January 28, 2014).

The Company further agreed it would vote its 20% membership interest in Pilus Energy in the same manner that Open Therapeutics votes its membership interest on all matters for which a member vote is required.

 

As a result of the sale of the patents to Open Therapeutics, the Company had fully impaired the value of the patents prior to the sale, and the warrants canceled as a result of this transaction was valueless as there is no intrinsic value to them. The Company recorded no gain or loss. Upon Open Therapeutics profitability with respect to this technology, the Company will be the beneficiary of a profit split as noted in the agreement, and will recognize revenue from that in the future.

NOTE 7 – EMBEDDED DERIVATIVES – FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company entered into several financial instruments, which consist of notes payable, containing various conversion features. Generally, the financial instruments are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock; at prices that are either marked to the volume weighted average price of the Company’s intended publicly traded stock or a static price determinative from the financial instrument agreements. These prices may be at a significant discount to market determined by the volume weighted average price once the Company completes its reverse acquisition with the intended publicly traded company. The Company for all intent and purposes considers this discount to be fair market value as would be determined in an arm’s length transaction with a willing buyer.

 

The Company accounts for the fair value of the conversion feature in accordance with ASC 815-15, Derivatives and Hedging; Embedded Derivatives, which requires the Company to bifurcate and separately account for the conversion features as an embedded derivative contained in the Company’s convertible debt and original issue discount notes payable. The Company is required to carry the embedded derivative on its balance sheet at fair value and account for any unrealized change in fair value as a component in its results of operations. The Company valued the embedded derivatives using eight steps to determine fair value under ASC 820. (1) Identify the item to be valued and the unit of account. (2) Determine the principal or most advantageous market and the relevant market participants. (3) Select the valuation premise to be used for asset measurements. (4) Consider the risk assumptions applicable to liability measurements. (5) Identify available inputs. (6) Select the appropriate valuation technique(s). (7) Make the measurement. (8) Determine amounts to be recognized and information to be disclosed.

 

As of March 31, 2015, the value of the derivative liability associated with the convertible notes was $90,000 associated with the Class B warrants issued to Hanover Holdings I, LLC, as the warrants had been converted into shares of common stock during the three months ended June 30, 2015. As a result of the Union Note and various Group 10 Notes, which contain anti-ratchet clauses, the Company recorded a derivative liability at inception of these notes, and mark to market each reporting period, the fair value of the derivative liability. In the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company recognized a loss on the fair value of the derivative liability in the amount of $102,134 bringing the fair value of the derivative liability to $804,410. In the year ended March 31, 2016, the Company recognized a loss on the fair value of the derivative liability in the amount of $277,700.

 

NOTE 8 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES AND NOTES PAYABLE

 

Union Capital, LLC – Note dated May 28, 2015

 

On May 28, 2015, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Union Purchase Agreement”) with Union Capital, LLC (“Union”) for the purchase of a 7% Convertible Redeemable Note in the principal amount of $104,000 with a maturity date of May 28, 2016 (the “Union Note”). The Company received gross proceeds of $100,000 under the Union Note. The Company granted Union 12,500,000 shares of Company common stock for a commitment fee in consideration of the Union Note. Pursuant to the terms of the Union Note, at any time Union may convert any principal and interest due to it at a 20% discount to the lowest closing bid price of Company common stock for the five trading days prior to the conversion notice.

(“ASP”). The debt carries a fixed interest rate per annum of 11.50% (“the Designated Rate”) payable in full by December 23, 2015 (“the Maturity Date”).

The balance of this $180,000 or the other $90,000 was to be wired directly to a Japanese based consumer product firm called Eishin, Inc., but there was never any documentation provided to support this $90,000. The Company is in dispute with the noteholder, and has not recorded this liability as of December 31, 2016. If the proper documentation is provided to the Company, they will record the liability at that time. In addition, the Company has accrued $13,186 in interest on this amount as of December 31, 2016.

(“Eishin”), a high growth Japan-based company focusing on providing solutions to improve automobile combustion efficiency. “Eco-Spray”, Eishin’s key product made from 100% natural ingredients, is distributed in numerous Asian markets including China, Japan, Korea, India, UAE, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Philippines and Myanmar, and is currently being tested for expansion in North America. The Company has agreed to make an investment in Eishin for a total of $180,000, of which half was paid on October 1, 2015 and the remainder to be paid by the end of October 31, 2015. The initial $90,000 that was to be used to purchase 20.1% ownership of Eishin was never funded by ASP and the shares were never transferred. Additionally, the Company did not invest any other funds to acquire any ownership in Eishin.

Fiscal Year 2016

 

On June 27, 2014, $250,000 in cash was released from escrow pursuant to a securities purchase agreement with Hanover Holdings I, LLC (“Hanover I”), as amended April 17, 2014, associated with the Company’s acquisition of Honeywood (see Note 1) and filing of a registration statement registering Company securities, whereby the Company agreed to issue shares of its common stock under a Class A and Class B warrant, as defined in the amended agreement. The Class A warrant provided for a fixed exercise price of $0.05 per share; the Class B warrant provided for an initial exercise price of $0.05, however, upon a drop of the market price below $0.05 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock for a period of three consecutive trading days, the Class B warrant shall carry a call option premium of 135% and shall require payment of the shares within 5 business days in the form of either cash or a conversion into shares of the Company’s common stock based on the closing share price on the three days prior. As the securities purchase agreement was entered into in anticipation of the Honeywood acquisition and the filing of a registration statement, neither of which occurred, the Company and Hanover I informally have agreed to regard the $250,000 investment as an exercise under the terms of the Class B warrant.

NOTE 11 – PROVISION FOR INCOME TAXES

 

Deferred income taxes are determined using the liability method for the temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and income tax basis of the Company’s assets and liabilities. Deferred income taxes are measured based on the tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences are included in the Company’s tax return. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized based on anticipated future tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.

 

Deferred tax assets consist of the following:

 

December 31, 2016 March 31, 2016
Net operating losses $ 5,910,000 $ 5,180,000
Impairment of assets 2,490,000 2,490,000
Valuation allowance (8,400,000 ) (7,670,000 )
$ $

 

At December 31, 2016, the Company had a U.S. net operating loss carryforward in the approximate amount of $20 million available to offset future taxable income through 2036. The Company established valuation allowances equal to the full amount of the deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of the utilization of the operating losses in future periods. The Company also has a Canadian carry forward loss which approximates $700,000 and is available to offset future taxable income through 2036. The valuation allowance increased by $730,000 and $580,000 in the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and the year ended March 31, 2016, respectively.

 

A reconciliation of the Company’s effective tax rate as a percentage of income before taxes and the federal statutory rate for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 is summarized as follows.

NOTE 13 – CURRENT LITIGATION

 

Lawsuit Filed Against Cowan Gunteski & Co. PA

 

On November 4, 2015, the Company filed a lawsuit against its predecessor audit firm Cowan Gunteski & Co. PA in Federal Court — Southern District Florida (Miami, Florida) entitled “Tauriga Sciences, Inc. v. Cowan, Gunteski & Co., P.A. et al”, Case No. 0:15-cv-62334. The case has since been transferred to the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The case alleges, among other things, that Cowan Gunteski committed malpractice with respect to the audit of the Company’s FY 2014 financial statements (as illustrated in the PCAOB Public Censure of July 23, 2015) and then misrepresented to the Company with respect about its ability to re-issue an independent opinion for FY 2014 financial statements. On July 31, 2015, the Company was delisted from the OTCQB Exchange to the OTC Pink Limited Information Tier due to its inability to file its FY 2015 Form 10K. The lawsuit was expected by the Company and its counsel to take up to 18 months to complete, from the date it was filed (November 4, 2015).

 

The Company in its lawsuit is seeking damages against Cowan Gunteski (and its malpractice insurance policy) expected to exceed $4,000,000. There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in this lawsuit.

 

Subsequent to the filing of the lawsuit, the Company was notified that the lawsuit was temporarily suspended so that the Company and Cowan can attempt to mediate this case based on the engagement letters between the parties. On December 30, 2015, the Company was notified that Daniel F. Kolb was appointed as the mediator.

 

Mediation commenced on February 3, 2016. During these efforts, the Company had been offered settlement amounts, but none that have been satisfactory.

 

On March 22, 2016, the Company decided that its good faith efforts to settle its ongoing litigation with Cowan Gunteski & Co. P.A. have proven unsuccessful. Therefore, the Board of Directors of the Company unanimously agreed to proceed forward with the litigation. The Company is continuing to seek the assistance of independent experts, to help ascribe dollar amounts for certain damages suffered by the Company (“provable damages”). At this point in time, the Company has realized out of pocket cash losses and liabilities (inclusive of liquidated damages) that exceed $850,000. Additional potential damages include but are not limited to: inability to properly maintain Pilus Energy’s Intellectual Property (“Pilus IP”), the July 31, 2015 delisting of the Company shares from OTCQB to Pink Sheets, loss of market capitalization (“market cap”), loss of trading liquidity (“trading volume”), and loss of substantial business opportunities. In aggregate the Company intends to seek monetary award(s), during trial, in excess of $4,000,000. That figure is expected to continually increase as additional time lapses.

 

On September 29, 2016, the judge presiding over the case approved the ruled on the two outstanding motions filed on June 13, 2016. The motion to transfer the case to United States District Court for the District of New Jersey was approved, however the judge denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Depositions have commenced in this case.

 

On January 19, 2017, the Company, along with Cowan Gunteski, participated in a pretrial status conference before a magistrate. During this meeting a pretrial scheduling order ruled: Rule 26 Meeting Report will be due by February 3, 2017; motions to amend/join new parties will be due by March 15, 2017; a telephone status conference be set for April 20, 2017; fact discovery will be due by April 28, 2017; an additional telephone status conference is set for June 6, 2017. The Company continues to compile expert reports to support its damages being sought and expects that it will seek damages at trial exceeding $4,000,000. The Company expects trial shall take place during the second or third calendar quarter of 2017.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

The following Business Overview and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations describes the principal factors affecting the results of operations, liquidity and capital resources and critical accounting estimates. This discussion should be read in conjunction with the accompanying quarterly unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in this Form 10-Q and our Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the year ended March 31, 2016 (“Annual Report”). Our Annual Report includes additional information about our significant accounting policies, practices and the transactions that underlie our financial results, as well as a detailed discussion of the most significant risks and uncertainties associated with our financial and operating results.

 

Business Overview

 

On October 29, 2013 the Company entered into a Strategic Alliance with Synthetic Biology Pioneer Bacterial Robotics LLC to Develop and Commercialize Industry Specific Bacterial Robots “BactoBots”. Under terms of the Agreement the companies will jointly develop a nuclear industry-specific Bacterial Robot (“BactoBots(TM)”). BactoBots are ubiquitous microscopic robots applicable to therapeutics, wastewater, and chemicals. Specifically, Bacterial Robotics owns a family of intellectual property beginning with U.S Patent # 8,354,267 B2 that relates generally to genetically enhanced bacteria that conduct specific functions. Bacterial Robotics initial focus with Tauriga was to develop a proprietary BactoBot to remediate wastewater generated by nuclear energy production.

 

On November 25, 2013, the Company executed a definitive agreement to acquire Pilus Energy, LLC (“Pilus”), an Ohio limited liability company and a developer of alternative cleantech energy platforms using proprietary microbial solutions that creates electricity while consuming polluting molecules from wastewater. Pilus is converging digester, fermenter, scrubber, and other proven technologies into a scalable Electrogenic Bioreactor (“EBR”) platform. This technology is the basis of the Pilus Cell™. The EBR harnesses genetically enhanced bacteria, also known as bacterial robots, or BactoBots™, that remediate water, harvest direct current (“DC”) electricity, and produce economically important gases. The EBR accomplishes this through bacterial metabolism, specifically cellular respiration of nearly four hundred carbon and nitrogen molecules. Pilus’ highly metabolic bacteria are non-pathogenic. Because of the mediated biofilm formation, these wastewater-to-value BactoBots resist heavy metal poisoning, swings of pH, and survive in a 4-to-45-degree Celsius temperature range. Additionally, the BactoBots are anaerobically and aerobically active, even with low BOD/COD.

 

On January 28, 2014, the Company acquired patents from Pilus. As a condition of the acquisition, Pilus will get one seat on the board of directors, and the shareholders of Pilus received a warrant to purchase 100,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company, which represented a fair market value of approximately $2,000,000. In addition, the Company paid Bacterial Robotics, LLC (“BRLLC”), formerly the parent company of Pilus, $50,000 on signing the memorandum of understanding and $50,000 at the time of closing. The only asset Pilus had on its balance sheet at the time of the acquisition was a patent. The Company determined that the value of the acquisition on January 28, 2014 would be equal to the value of cash paid to Pilus plus the value of the 100,000,000 warrants they issued to acquire Pilus. Through March 31, 2014, the Company amortized the patent over its estimated useful life, then on March 31, 2014, the Company conducted its annual impairment test and determined that the entire unamortized balance should be impaired as the necessary funding to further develop the patent was not available at that time.

 

On December 22, 2016, the Company, entered in a membership interest transfer agreement with Open Therapeutics, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company (“Open Therapeutics” formerly Bacterial Robotics LLC and Microbial Robotics, LLC), whereby the Company sold 80% of its membership interest in Pilus, which included thepatents. Open Therapeutics agreed to terminate and cancel 80% of the unexercised portion of the warrant to purchase 28,917,647 shares (or 23,134,118 warrants) of the Company’s common stock (issued on January 28, 2014). Open Therapeutics will pay 20% of the net profit generated, to the Company from the previous year’s earnings after the initial $75,000 of profit (reflected as a contingent liability on the consolidated balance sheet). The Company further agreed it would vote its 20% membership interest in Pilus Energy in the same manner that Open Therapeutics votes its membership interest on all matters for which a member vote is required.

 

On November 15, 2016, the Company announced that it will form a new wholly owned subsidiary focused on the development, marketing and distribution of products that target muscle tension. The subsidiary will be called ColluMauxil Therapeutics LLC (“ColluMauxil”), which is based on the Latin terms for neck relief — “collum” and “auxilium.” The Company has filed for trademarks in association with the business with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Company plans to develop, market, distribute and potentially license a broad array of products and technologies that may help individuals who are affected by muscle tension. The Company has already identified potential products and technologies of interest and is actively working towards the goal of creating an innovative product line to launch the business activities of ColluMauxil. The Company believes that one of its most important strengths is its access to and relationships with potentially substantial distribution systems and networks. The Company intends to capitalize on distribution opportunities and will continually update shareholders on such developments. The Company intends on developing a product that specifically targets muscle tension in the neck, shoulder, and upper back. The Company envisions that this product will incorporate a roll-on delivery system (“Roll-On Product”) which is easier to apply to a specific area on the body. The Company also plans to develop a Roll-On Product that incorporates CBD Oil (“Cannabis Oil”), which is a legal alternative to THC oil, and it is available for sale in all states as well as around the world. Cannabis Oil is widely believed to provide relief to individuals who suffer from muscle tension, tenderness, and pain. Both contemplated Roll-On Products will be branded under the ColluMauxil.

Products will be developed for and distributed to the retail market but there can be no guaranty that any revenue will ever be generated. The Company believes it can raise the necessary funds to develop and begin distribution of its first muscles tension product for approximately $200,000, which it hopes to obtain through equity financing (“private placement”). The Company believes none of the contemplated products to be developed under the ColluMauxil brand will require approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

 

On December 23, 2016, the Company, entered into a non-exclusive, 12 month, license agreement with Cleveland, Ohio based cosmetics products firm Ice + Jam LLC (“Ice + Jam”) (the “License Agreement”). Under terms of the License Agreement, the Company will market Ice + Jam’s proprietary Cupuacu Butter lip balm, sold under the trademark HERMAN and the two companies will evenly share (“50% / 50%”) any profits through the Company’s marketing, sales, and distribution efforts. The Company will pay the production costs for all product it sells to retail customers or distributors. The Company paid a one-time upfront non-refundable license fee of $9,810 in cash and agreed to an additional payment of common shares of Company stock. The Company agreed to issue 5,000,000 common shares which had a value of $27,500, based on the closing price of the stock on the day the Company entered into the agreement ($0.005 per share). The cost of the shares will be prorated over the life of the license. The Company further paid $2,190 as a prepaid deposit on future inventory for the purchase of 1,500 units at unit cost of $1.46. As of December 31, 2016, none of the units have been completed therefore the Company has recorded the payment as a prepaid asset. The agreement may be extended for an additional 12 months based on mutual agreement. The two companies reserve the right to request amendment of the License Agreement at any point during the effective duration.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Three and nine months ended December 31, 2016 compared to the three and nine months ended December 31, 2015

 

Revenue. The Company was currently developing its business and as a result it had not developed a material or consistent pattern of revenue generation. In addition, and as discussed further below, the business was disposed of in August 2015. For the three and nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company did not generate any revenue, compared to $0 and $51,062 (discontinued) revenue for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2015.

 

The revenue was generated from the Company’s natural wellness cannabis compliment line launched in August of 2014. The Company disposed of operations on August 7, 2015. There is no guaranty that the new line of business will result in material revenue production.

 

Cost of Goods Sold. The Company’s cost of goods sold for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2016 was $0 for both periods, which resulted in no gross profit for those periods compared to cost of goods sold of $6,530 and $14,472 for the same periods in the prior year. Gross margin for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2016 was $0 compared to $3,786 or 36.7% and $36,590 or 71.66% for the same period in the prior year, respectively. The difference was due to the disposition of operations in the second fiscal quarter of 2016.

 

General and Administrative Expenses. For the three months ended December 31, 2016, general and administrative expenses were $310,008 compared to $214,753 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. This increase was primarily due to vested stock based compensation of $64,217.

 

For the nine months ended December 31, 2016, general and administrative expenses were $1,388,083 compared to $988,108 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in consulting fee expense of $830,503, largely from issuances of common stock for services rendered offset by lower stock-based compensation of $380,979.

 

Other Income (Expense). For the three months ended December 31, 2016, other expense was $241,566 compared to income of $1,030,179 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The increase in expense the three months ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to a change in the fair value of the derivative liability of $904,099.

 

For the nine months December 31, 2016, other expense was $605,077 compared to $228,580 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The increase in the nine months ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase in interest expense of $587,768.

 

Net Loss. For the three months ended December 31, 2016, the Company generated net loss of $658,074 compared to a gain of $813,154 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The difference in the three months ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to a change in the fair value of the derivative liability of $904,099.

 

For the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company generated net loss of $2,106,574 compared to $1,320,389 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. The increase in the nine months ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase general and administrative expense of $399,975 and increased interest expense of $587,768.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We continue to fund our operations through private placement offerings and other financings.

 

4

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company sold shares of common stock raising $366,000, and from proceeds of convertible notes of $131,000.

 

At December 31, 2016, the Company had $344 in cash compared to none at March 31, 2016.

 

Cash Flows

 

Net cash used in operating activities amounted to $494,303 and $387,728 for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The change in operating activities is largely the result of an increase in accrued expenses of $437,486 and increased value of shares issued for services of $839,250 in the nine months ended December 31, 2016, offset by an increased loss of $786,185.

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016 the Company used cash of $1,081 in investing activities compared to $1,243 provided for the same period in the prior year.

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, we had $495,728 cash provided by financing activities compared to $177,962 provided in the same period in the prior fiscal year, primarily as a result of shares issued for cash in 2016 of $366,000. In 2015, the Company received proceeds of $223,000 in notes payable from individuals and companies (of which $18,000 was from a related party) and $184,000 from a convertible debenture, offset by a payment of $230,000 to settle an agreement with another financing institution.

 

We do not believe that our cash on hand at December 31, 2016 will be sufficient to fund our current working capital requirements as we try to develop a new business line. We will continue to seek additional equity financing. However, there is no assurance that we will be successful in our equity private placements or if we are that the terms will be beneficial to our shareholders.

 

Going Concern Qualifications

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company had no revenue and net losses of $2,106,574 for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $1,320,389 for the nine months ended December 31, 2015. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $53,919,367 and there are existing uncertain conditions which the Company faces relative to its obtaining financing and capital in the equity markets. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Additionally, even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses, acquire new license agreements or ownership interests in life science companies and generate adequate revenues, or the agreements entered into recently are unsuccessful, there can be no assurances that the revenues will be sufficient to enable it to develop business to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission defines the term “disclosure controls and procedures” to mean a company’s controls and other procedures of an issuer that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by an issuer in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to the issuer’s management, including its chief executive and chief financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company maintains such a system of controls and procedures in an effort to ensure that all information which it is required to disclose in the reports it files under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified under the SEC’s rules and forms and that information required to be disclosed is accumulated and communicated to the chief executive and chief financial officer to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective as of such date. The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have determined that the Company continues to have the following deficiencies which represent a material weakness:

 

1. The Company does not have an Audit Committee;
2. Lack of in-house personnel with the technical knowledge to identify and address some of the reporting accounting issues surrounding certain complex or non-routine transactions. With material, complex and non-routine transactions, management has and will continue to seek guidance from third-party experts and/or consultants to gain a thorough understanding of these transactions;
3. Insufficient personnel resources within the accounting function to segregate the duties over financial transaction processing and reporting; and
4. Insufficient written policies and procedures over accounting transaction processing and period end financial disclosure and reporting processes.

 

To remediate our internal control weaknesses, management would need to implement the following measures:

 

The Company would need to add sufficient number of independent directors to the board and will form an Audit Committee with a qualified person to chair the committee.
The Company has hired a chief financial officer, but would need to add sufficient accounting personnel to properly segregate duties and to effect a timely, accurate preparation of the financial statements.
The Company would need to staff technically proficient at applying U.S. GAAP to financial transactions and reporting.
Upon the hiring of additional accounting personnel, the Company would develop and maintain adequate written accounting policies and procedures.

 

Currently, management does not have the resources nor will it in the near to mid-term future to accomplish these goals.

 

The additional hiring is contingent upon the Company’s efforts to obtain additional funding through equity or debt and the results of its operations. Management expects to secure funds in the coming fiscal year but provides no assurances that it will be able to do so.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Except as set forth above, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

 

The Company’s management, including the CEO and CFO, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Further, the design of the control system must reflect that there are resource constraints and that the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

 

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

From time to time, we may be involved in litigation relating to claims arising out of our operations in the normal course of business. As of January 25, 2017, there were no pending or threatened lawsuits that could reasonably be expected to have a material effect on the results of our operations except as set forth below:

 

Lawsuit Filed Against Cowan Gunteski & Co. PA

 

On November 4, 2015, the Company filed a lawsuit against its predecessor audit firm Cowan Gunteski & Co. PA in Federal Court — Southern District Florida (Miami, Florida) entitled “Tauriga Sciences, Inc. v. Cowan, Gunteski & Co., P.A. et al”, Case No. 0:15-cv-62334. The case has since been transferred to the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The case alleges, among other things, that Cowan Gunteski committed malpractice with respect to the audit of the Company’s FY 2014 financial statements (as illustrated in the PCAOB Public Censure of July 23, 2015) and then misrepresented to the Company with respect about its ability to re-issue an independent opinion for FY 2014 financial statements. On July 31, 2015, the Company was delisted from the OTCQB Exchange to the OTC Pink Limited Information Tier due to its inability to file its FY 2015 Form 10K. The lawsuit was expected by the Company and its counsel to take up to 18 months to complete, from the date it was filed (November 4, 2015).

 

The Company in its lawsuit is seeking damages against Cowan Gunteski (and its malpractice insurance policy) expecting to exceed $4,000,000. There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in this lawsuit.

 

Subsequent to the filing of the lawsuit, the Company was notified that the lawsuit was temporarily suspended so that the Company and Cowan can attempt to mediate this case based on the engagement letters between the parties. On December 30, 2015, the Company was notified that Daniel F. Kolb was appointed as the mediator.

 

Mediation commenced on February 3, 2016. During these efforts, the Company had been offered settlement amounts, but none that have been satisfactory.

 

On March 22, 2016, the Company decided that its good faith efforts to settle its ongoing litigation with Cowan Gunteski & Co. P.A. have proven unsuccessful. Therefore, the Board of Directors of the Company unanimously agreed to proceed forward with the litigation. The Company is continuing to seek the assistance of independent experts, to help ascribe dollar amounts for certain damages suffered by the Company (“provable damages”). At this point in time, the Company has realized out of pocket cash losses and liabilities (inclusive of liquidated damages) that exceed $850,000. Additional potential damages include but are not limited to: inability to properly maintain Pilus Energy’s Intellectual Property (“Pilus IP”), the July 31, 2015 delisting of the Company shares from OTCQB to Pink Sheets, loss of market capitalization (“market cap”), loss of trading liquidity (“trading volume”), and loss of substantial business opportunities. In aggregate the Company intends to seek monetary award(s), during trial, in excess of $4,000,000. That figure is expected to continually increase as additional time lapses.

 

On September 29, 2016, the judge presiding over the case approved the ruled on the two outstanding motions filed on June 13, 2016. The motion to transfer the case to United States District Court for the District of New Jersey was approved, however the judge denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Depositions have commenced in this case.

 

On January 19, 2017, the Company, along with Cowan Gunteski, participated in a pretrial status conference before a magistrate (SEE NOTE 13). During this meeting a pretrial scheduling order ruled: Rule 26 Meeting Report will be due by February 3, 2017; motions to amend/join new parties will be due by March 15, 2017; a telephone status conference be set for April 20, 2017; fact discovery will be due by April 28, 2017; an additional telephone status conference is set for June 6, 2017. The Company continues to compile expert reports to support its damages being sought and expects that it will seek damages at trial exceeding $4,000,000. The Company expects trial shall take place during the second or third calendar quarter of 2017.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

The Company is attempting to enter a new line of business which is highly competitive and if not a regulated today it may be regulated in the future.

 

Entering a new line of business has many risks including obtaining sufficient capital to cover startup expenses and to continue to fund operations until sales are sufficient to fund ongoing operations. The business line may never bring products to market. If the products do go to market, there is no guarantee that there will have enough sales to be profitable. Products will be developed for and distributed to the retail market but there can be no guaranty that any revenue will ever be generated. The Company may not be able to raise the necessary funds to develop and begin distribution of its first muscles tension product which is approximately $200,000, which it hopes to obtain through equity financing. The Company believes none of the contemplated products to be developed under the ColluMauxil brand will require approval from the Food and Drug Administration.

 

New DEA regulations could potentially impact the Company’s new business line negatively.

 

On December 14, 2016, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (the”DEA”) added a notice to the Federal Register that it had established “a new drug code for marihuana extract”. The DEA’s argument is that the agency is entitled to regulate CBD oil because all extracts contain trace amounts of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis which remains illegal at the federal level. As a result, the Company sought legal advice from several reputable law firms and legal sources to ensure that its shareholders are protected and that the Company complies with all federal and state regulations. After careful legal review, the Company believes at this time, that RolLeaf remains legal to sell throughout the United States. Specifically Section 7606 of the 2014 Congressional Farm Bill (H.R. 2642 – Agricultural Act of 2014 of the 113th Congress) defines hemp as distinct from marijuana and is therefore removed from the definition as a controlled substance when grown under a compliant state program. Additionally cannabidiol (CBD) is not listed on the federal schedule of controlled substances and the Final Rule published on December 14th by the DEA was not a scheduling action but rather an administrative action related to record keeping. It should also be noted that the Company has obtained 3rd party laboratory certificate of analysis (COA) confirming that the CBD isolate used in formulating RolLeaf is both pure and within the guidelines of what is currently legal to sell in the United States. However, in light of these recent events, the Company believes that there may be increased risk in the future (with respect to CBD) due to the DEA’s recent categorization efforts.

 

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

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company issued 33,900,000 shares of common stock at a value $135,600 ($0.004 per share) to convert notes payable in the amount $113,000 (including a related party note in the amount of $18,000) plus a 20% conversion premium which was recorded as interest expense in the amount $22,600. During the year ended March 31, 2016 no notes were converted to common stock.

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company issued 93,375,000 shares of common stock ($0.004 per share) for proceeds of $373,500.

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company issued 123,500,000 shares of common stock for services rendered valued at $831,850 ($0.0041 to $0.0088 per share).

 

During the nine months ended December 31, 2016, the Company issued 29,300,000 shares of common stock for commitment shares to note holders at a value of $223,400 ($0.0045 to $0.01 per share).

 

On November 7, 2016 44,000,000 shares in the amount of $50,160 ($0.00114 per share) were issued to convert a 12% convertible note issued on August 3, 2016 which was held by Group 10. The note had a face value of $48,000 with accrued interest of $2,160.

 

On November 18, 2016, the Company issued 15,384,615 common shares of Company stock to settle an outstanding payable in the amount of $197,593. Based on the market value on the day of issuance of $103,077 ($0.0067 per common share) the Company we recognize a gain on the extinguishment of liability in the amount of $94,516.

 

ITEM 3. DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES.

 

As of this report date the Company was in default of two convertible notes payable; a $104,000 7% convertible redeemable note dated May 28, 2015 with Union Capital, LLC (“Union”) and a $96,000 20% OID convertible debenture with Group 10 Holdings LLC (“Group 10”) dated July 14, 2015, bearing a 12% annual rate of interest.

 

As a result of the default the Union note principal balance increased by 50% to $156,000 with an interest rate of 24%. The Group 10 note, as a result of the default, increased the unpaid principal balance by 18% to $113,280 with an interest rate of 18%.

 

On December 6, 2016, Group 10 formally notified the Company of the amount of the default penalty being charged under their default penalty clause. This penalty resulted in the amount of $348,000. The current amount as demanded by the note holder was recorded as interest expense.

 

The Company’s default is result of the July 15, 2015 filing failure which resulted in the delisting from the OTCQB Exchange resulting for failure to timely file the its annual report with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) violating Regulation SX, Rule 2-01 as a direct result of the Company not being able to obtain properly audited financial statements. As of December 5, 2016, with the Company’s filing of its second quarterly results for fiscal year 2017 the default event was cured.

 

As a result of default the Group 10 convertible note dated August 3, 2017, beginning on October 1, 2016, the Company began to incur default penalty fees in the amount of $1,000 per business day until it regained fully reporting status with the filing of its quarterly 10Q on December 5, 2016 (SEE NOTE 8). The default penalty of $45,000 for the period of 45 days was settled for 10,000,000 common shares of Company stock ($0.0045 per share).

 

Also, as of this report date, the Company was in default of an 11.5% debt facility with Alternative Strategy Partners PTE Ltd. (“ASP”) dated September 23, 2015 of a non-convertible note with a balance of $90,000, for the failure to make timely payment as per agreed on December 23, 2015. As a result of the default this note, this note bears an 18% interest rate. The Company has not received any default notices from ASP as of January 25, 2017. Additionally, the Company is currently in negotiations to settle all remaining obligations due to ASP under this $90,000 face value debenture.
