NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with both generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information, and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) that are, in the opinion of management, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures are unaudited and have been prepared with the presumption that users of the interim financial information have read or have access to the Company’s annual audited consolidated financial statements for the preceding fiscal year. Accordingly, these condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the related notes for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 thereto contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

Organization and Nature of Operations

 

Legacy Card Company (“Legacy”) was formed as a Limited Liability Company on August 29, 2001. On April 18, 2005, Legacy converted from a California Limited Liability Company to a Nevada Corporation. On November 10, 2005, Legacy merged with Cardiff Lexington Corp. (“Cardiff”, the “Company”), a publicly held corporation.

 

In the first quarter of 2013, it was decided to restructure Cardiff into a holding company that adopted a new business model known as "Collaborative Governance," a form of governance enabling businesses to take advantage of the power of a public company. Cardiff began targeting the acquisition of undervalued, niche companies with high growth potential, and income-producing commercial real estate properties, all designed to pay a dividend to the Company’s shareholders. The reason for this strategy was to protect the Company’s shareholders by acquiring businesses with little to no debt, seeking support with both financing and management that had the ability to offer a return to investors. 

 

Description of Business

 

Cardiff is a holding company that adopted a new business model known as "Collaborative Governance.” To date, the Company is not aware of any other domestic holding company using the same business philosophy or governing policies.

 

To date, Cardiff consists of the following wholly-owned subsidiaries:

 

We Three, LLC (Affordable Housing Initiative) acquired on May 15, 2014;

Romeo’s NY Pizza acquired on June 30, 2014;

Edge View Properties, Inc. acquired on July 16, 2014;

FDR Enterprises, Inc. acquired on August 10, 2016;

Refreshment Concepts, LLC acquired on August 10, 2016;

Repicci’s Franchise Group, LLC acquired on August 10, 2016;

Red Rock Travel Group, acquired July31, 2018

Platinum Tax Defenders, acquired July 31, 2018

2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION, AND GOING CONCERN

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements include normal recurring adjustments that are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year or any other periods.

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make a number of estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, expenses, and related disclosures. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Adoption of ASC Topic 606, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers"

 

On January 1, 2018, we adopted Topic 606 using the modified retrospective method applied to those contracts which were not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting under Topic 605.

 

There was no impact to the opening balance of accumulated deficit or revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as a result of applying Topic 606.

 

The Company applies a five-step approach in determining the amount and timing of revenue to be recognized: (1) identifying the contract with a customer, (2) identifying the performance obligations in the contract, (3) determining the transaction price, (4) allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract and (5) recognizing revenue when the performance obligation is satisfied. Substantially all of the Company’s revenue is recognized at the time control of the products transfers to the customer.

 

The Company generates revenue from our subsidiaries primarily on a cash basis for sale of food items and monthly rentals of mobile homes. As allowed by a practical expedient in Topic 606, the entity recognizes revenue in the amount to which the entity has a right to invoice. The term between invoicing and when payment is due is not significant.

 

Our segmented revenue is disclosed more fully in our financial statements, see footnote 10 for further details.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared using the going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has sustained operating losses since its inception and has negative working capital and an accumulated deficit. These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had a working capital deficit of $7,440,414 and a shareholders’ deficit of $5,340,742. As further described in Notes 5 and 6, the Company is in default with various Notes and Convertible Notes Payable. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not reflect any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. As a result, the Company’s previous independent registered public accounting firm, in its report on the Company’s December 31, 2017 consolidated financial statements, has raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and the appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, additional cash infusions. Management has prospective investors and believes the raising of capital will allow the Company to pursue new acquisitions. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain sufficient capital from debt or equity transactions or from operations in the necessary time frame or on terms acceptable to it. Should the Company be unable to raise sufficient funds, it may be required to curtail its operating plans. In addition, increases in expenses may require cost reductions. No assurance can be given that the Company will be able to operate profitably on a consistent basis, or at all, in the future. Should the Company not be able to raise sufficient funds, it may cause a significant reduction in or cessation of operations.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are carried at cost. Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that extend the useful lives of property and equipment are capitalized. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation and amortization of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method for financial reporting purposes at rates based on the following estimated useful lives:

 

Classification   Useful Life 
Equipment, furniture and fixtures   5 - 7 years 
Leasehold improvements   10 years or lease term, if shorter 

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company disposed of $104,886 fixed asset and related liabilities related to a company-owned franchise, resulting in net cash flow of $91,847 and a gain on sale of $874 from disposal.

  

Fair Value

 

ASC 820 Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”) defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. It defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities that are not active; and model-driven valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable. Valuations may be obtained from, or corroborated by, third-party pricing services.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs to measure fair value of assets and liabilities for which there is little, if any market activity at the measurement date, using reasonable inputs and assumptions based upon the best information at the time, to the extent that inputs are available without undue cost and effort.

 

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of changes in the fair value of financial assets and liabilities classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy:

 

      Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total  
  Fair Value of Derivative Liability – December 31, 2017     $     $     $ 2,236,656     $ 2,236,656  

 

      Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     Total  
  Fair Value of Derivative Liability – September 30, 2018     $     $     $ 2,933,981     $ 2,933,981

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02,” Leases” (Topic 842) which includes a lessee accounting model that recognizes two types of leases - finance leases and operating leases. The standard requires that a lessee recognize on the balance sheet assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months. The recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee will depend on its classification as a finance or an operating lease. New disclosures to help investors and other financial statement users better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases are also required. These disclosures include qualitative and quantitative requirements, providing information about the amounts recorded in the financial statements. ASU 2016-02 will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the effect its adoption of this standard, if any, on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09, “Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting”, to provide clarity and reduce both (1) diversity in practice and (2) cost and complexity when applying the guidance in Topic 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation, to a change to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award. The ASU provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in ASC 718. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and should be applied prospectively to an award modified on or after the adoption date. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company adopted the standard on January 1, 2018, which did not have a material impact on the financial statements.

Notes Payable – Unrelated Party

 

On March 12, 2009, the Company entered into a preferred debenture agreement with a shareholder for $20,000. The note bore interest at 12% per year and matured on September 12, 2009. In conjunction with the preferred debenture, the Company issued 2,000,000 warrants to purchase its Common Stock, exercisable at $0.10 per share and expired on March 12, 2014. As a result of the warrants issued, the Company recorded a $20,000 debt discount during 2009 which has been fully amortized. The Company assigned all of its receivables from consumer activations of the rewards program as collateral on this debenture. On March 24, 2011, the Company amended the note and the principal balance was reduced to $15,000. The Company was due to pay annual principal payments of $5,000 plus accrued interest beginning March 12, 2012. On July 20, 2011, the Company repaid $5,000 of the note. No warrants had been exercised before the expiration. As of September 30, 2018, the Company is in default on this debenture. The balance of the note was $10,989 at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

As of September 30, 2018, the Company had lease payable of $48,059 in connection with two capital leases on two Mercedes Sprinter Vans for the ice cream section and two auto loans related to our pizza business. There are purchase options at the end of all lease terms that are based on the fair market value of the vans at the time. The leases are not in default at the current time.

 

Notes payable to unrelated party of $31,820 was due to the auto loans for the vehicles used in the Pizza restaurants and Repicci’s Group and for daily operations. The loans carry interest from 0% to 6% interest and are not currently in default.

Interest is payable annually on the anniversary of Note 1, and the principal and any unpaid interest will be due upon maturity. In conjunction with Note 1, the Company issued 2,500,000 shares of its Common Stock to the lender. As a result of the shares issued in conjunction with Note 1, the Company recorded a $50,000 debt discount during 2011. The balance of Note 1, net of debt discount, was $50,000 and $50,000 at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. Note 1 is currently in default.

 

On November 17, 2011, the Company entered into a Promissory Note agreement (“Note 2”) with a related party for $50,000. Note 2 bears interest at 8% per year and matures on November 17, 2016. Interest is payable annually on the anniversary of Note 2, and the principal and any unpaid interest will be due upon maturity. In conjunction with Note 2, the Company issued 2,500,000 shares of its Common Stock to the lender. As a result of the shares issued in conjunction with Note 2, the Company recorded a $50,000 debt discount during 2011.

6. CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

Certain of the Company’s issued Convertible Notes include anti-dilution provisions that allow for the adjustment of the conversion price. The Company considered the guidance provided by the FASB in “Determining Whether an Instrument Indexed to an Entity’s Own Stock,” the result of which indicates that the instrument is not indexed to the issuer’s own stock. Accordingly, the Company determined that, as the conversion price of the Notes issued in connection therewith could fluctuate based future events, such prices were not fixed amounts. As a result, the Company determined that the conversion features of the Notes issued in connection therewith are not considered indexed to the Company’s stock and characterized the value of the conversion feature of such notes as derivative liabilities upon issuance. The Company has recorded derivative liabilities associated with convertible debt instruments.

As of September 30, 2018, the company received $1,124,200 net cash proceeds, from convertible notes. The Company recorded amortization of debt discount of $330,941 and $765,901 related to convertible notes, during the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2018, respectively.

 

Convertible notes at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 are summarized below:

 

   September 30,
2018
   December 31,
2017

Total  $1,941,502   $781,381 
Current Portion   901,502    781,381 
Long-Term Portion  $1,040,000   $ 

 

Convertible Notes Payable – Unrelated Party

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company borrowed an aggregate of $1,680,766, net of original issue discounts and fees of $130,476, under convertible notes payable. As of September 30, 2018, and December 31, 2017, the Company had outstanding convertible notes payable of $1,941,502 and $781,381, net of unamortized discounts of $285,860 and $245,494, respectively. The outstanding convertible notes of the Company are unsecured, bear interest between 8% and 20% per annum and mature through January, 2021.

 

Four of the above referenced convertible notes payable are convertible at $0.03 per share or 50% of market. Five of the above referenced convertible notes payable are convertible at $0.25 per share or 50% of market. One of the above referenced convertible notes payable are convertible at $0.30 per share or 50% of market. One of the above referenced notes is convertible at 40% of the lowest sale price of the common stock during the 10 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. Four of the above referenced notes is convertible at 60% of the lowest sale price of the common stock during the 10 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. One of the above referenced notes is convertible at 60% of the lowest sale price or bid (whichever is lower) of the common stock during the 20 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. One of the above referenced notes is convertible at 60% of the lowest sale price of the common stock during the 20 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. Two of the above referenced notes is convertible at 60% of the lowest sale price of the common stock during the 15 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. One of the above referenced notes is convertible at 60% of the lowest trading price of the common stock during the 25 consecutive trading days prior to the date of conversion. One note is convertible at $0.04 per share or 40% of the lowest bid price for prior 21 days and one note is convertible at $0.004 per share or 60% of the lowest trading price for prior 21 days.

 

The Company determined that the conversion features contained in the convertible note payable with the unrelated party carrying value represents an embedded derivative instrument that meets the requirements for liability classification under ASC 815. As a result, the fair value of the derivative financial instrument in the note is reflected in the Company’s balance sheet as a liability. The fair value of the derivative financial instrument of the convertible note was initially measured using the Binomial-Lattice valuation model at note issuance and is remeasured on each subsequent balance sheet date. Any changes in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments are recorded as non-operating, non-cash income or expense at each balance sheet date. The derivative liabilities are reclassified into additional paid in capital upon conversion or expiration. See Footnote 7 for more information on derivative liabilities.

 

As of September 30, 2018, twelve of these convertible notes are in default and have default fees and default interest ranging from 5% to 20%.

 

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company received conversion notices for $392,149 and $487,434 of convertible debt and $46,336 and $88,238 in interest and fees, respectively, which were converted into 183,442,261 and 195,850,3246 shares, respectively.

Convertible Notes Payable – Related Party

 

The Company determined that the conversion features contained in convertible note payable with related party meet the requirements for liability classification as derivatives under ASC 815. As a result, the fair value of the derivative financial instrument in the note is reflected in the Company’s balance sheet as a liability. The fair value of the derivative financial instrument of the convertible note was measured using the Binomial-Lattice valuation model at the note issuance and is remeasured on each subsequent balance sheet date. Any changes in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments are recorded as non-operating, non-cash income or expense at each balance sheet date. The derivative liabilities will be reclassified into additional paid in capital upon conversion. See Footnote 7 for more information on derivative liabilities.

 

On April 21, 2008, the Company entered into an unsecured Convertible Debenture (“Debenture 1”) with a shareholder in the amount of $150,000. Debenture 1 is convertible into Common Shares of the Company at $0.03 per and interest of 12% per year, matured in August 2009, and is unsecured. The Company is currently in default on Debenture 1. The balance of Debenture 1 was $150,000 at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

On March 11, 2009, the Company entered into an unsecured Convertible Debenture (“Debenture 2”) with a shareholder in the amount of $15,000. Debenture 2 is convertible into Common Shares of the Company at $0.03 per and interest of 12% per year, matured in August 2009, and is unsecured. The Company is currently in default on Debenture 1. The balance of Debenture 2 was $15,000 at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

 

7. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

 

The Company adopted the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 825-10, Financial Instruments (“ASC 825-10”) on January 1, 2008. ASC 825-10 defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required or permitted to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which it would transact and considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions, and risk of nonperformance. ASC 825-10 establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 825-10 establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

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

 

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of fair value of assets or liabilities.

 

To the extent that valuation is based on models or inputs that are less observable or unobservable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, for disclosure purposes, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement is disclosed and is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

Upon adoption of ASC 825-10, there was no cumulative effect adjustment to beginning retained earnings and no impact on the financial statements.

 

The carrying value of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, short-term borrowings (including convertible notes payable), and other current assets and liabilities approximate fair value because of their short-term maturity.

 

 

 

 16 

 

 

As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company did not have any items that would be classified as level 1 or 2 disclosures.

 

The Company recognizes its derivative liabilities as level 3 and values its derivatives using the methods discussed. While the Company believes that its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, it recognizes that the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different estimate of fair value at the reporting date. The primary assumptions that would significantly affect the fair values using the methods discussed are that of volatility and market price of the underlying common stock of the Company.

 

As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company did not have any derivative instruments that were designated as hedges.

 

The derivative liability as of September 30, 2018, in the amount of $2,933,981 has a level 3 classification.

 

The following table provides a summary of changes in fair value of the Company’s Level 3 financial liabilities for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018:

 

Derivative Liability, June 30, 2018   1,983,308 
Day 1 Loss   508,393 
Discount from derivatives   191,200 
Resolution of derivative liability upon conversion   (1,139,232)
Mark to market adjustment   1,390,313

The above tables also include derivative liabilities related to warrants to purchase common stock of $14,657 at September 30, 2018. Net loss for the period included mark-to-market adjustments relating to the liabilities held during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2018 in the amounts of $1,898,704 and $1,317,018, respectively.

 

Fluctuations in the Company’s stock price are a primary driver for the changes in the derivative valuations during each reporting period. During the period ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s stock price decreased from initial valuation. As the stock price decreases for each of the related derivative instruments, the value to the holder of the instrument generally decreases. Stock price is one of the significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of each of the Company’s derivative instruments.

 

The valuation of the derivative liabilities attached to the convertible debt was arrived at through the use of the Lattice Bi-nominal Option Pricing Model and the following assumptions:

Other revenue consists of nonrecurring items.

 

The mobile home lease segment establishes mobile home business as an option for a homeowner wishing to avoid large down payments, expensive maintenance costs, monthly mortgage payments and high property taxes. If bad credit is an issue preventing people from purchasing a traditional house, the Company will provide a financial leasing option with "0" interest on the lease providing a "lease to own" option for their family home.

 

The Company-owned Pizza Restaurant segment includes sales and operating results for all Company-owned restaurants. Assets for this segment include equipment, furniture and fixtures for the Company-owned restaurants.

Item 2: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements including the related notes, and the other financial information included in this report. For ease of reference, “the Company”, “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Cardiff Lexington Corp., and Legacy Card Company, Inc. (d/b/a: Mission Tuition) unless otherwise stated.

 

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Information

 

This report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 with respect to the financial condition, results of operations, business strategies, operating efficiencies or synergies, competitive positions, growth opportunities for existing products, plans and objectives of management, markets for stock of Cardiff Lexington Corp. and other matters. Statements in this report that are not historical facts are hereby identified as “forward-looking statements” for the purpose of the safe harbor provided by Section 21E of the Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933. Such forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those relating to the future business prospects, revenue and income of Cardiff Lexington Corp., wherever they occur, are necessarily estimates reflecting the best judgment of the senior management of Cardiff Lexington Corp. on the date on which they were made, or if no date is stated, as of the date of this report. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those described in the “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part I of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), that may affect the operations, performance, development and results of our business. Because the factors discussed in this report could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf, you should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict which factors will arise. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward looking statements, except as required by law.

 

RISK FACTORS

 

You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this document before deciding to invest in shares of our common stock.

 

The occurrence of any of the following risks could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and operating result. In this case, the trading price of our common stock could decline and you might lose all or part of your investment.

 

During our startup phase we were not profitable and generated minimal revenue and no profit.

 

As of this filing, though still not profitable, Cardiff is generating significantly higher revenue which helps mitigate the risk. Currently we have a small amount of consolidated stockholders’ equity. As a result, though pleased with our progress and current results, we may never become profitable, and could go out of business.

 

Through inception until December 2014, we have restructured ourselves into a holding company and have acquired several additional businesses; We Three, Inc. d/b/a Affordable Housing Initiative, Romeo’s NY Pizza, Edge View Properties, FDR Enterprises, Inc. Repicci’s Franchise Group, and Refreshment Concepts, Red Rock Travel Group and Platinum Tax Defenders.

 

Future revenue growth will no longer depend on missiontuition.com, but will be derived from our new acquisitions. We cannot guarantee we will ever develop substantial revenue from our subsidiary companies and there is no assurance that we will achieve profitability.

 

 

 

 

 23 

 

 

Because we had incurred operating losses from our inception, we still consider ourselves a going concern.

 

For the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, our accountants have expressed concern about our ability to continue as a going concern due to our continued net losses and need for additional capital. However, we believe our ability to achieve and maintain profitability and positive cash flow is dependent upon:

 

· our ability to acquire profitable businesses within Cardiff; and

 

· our ability to generate substantial revenues; and

 

· our ability to obtain additional financing

 

Based upon current plans, we may incur operating losses in future periods. Also, we expect approximately $600,000 in operating costs to be incurred over the next twelve months. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in generating sufficient revenues or obtaining other financing in the future to cover these operating costs. Additionally, financing may not be available on terms favorable to the Company. Failure to generate sufficient revenues may cause us to go out of business.

 

Since we are an early stage company that has generated minimal revenue, an investment in our shares is highly risky and could result in a complete loss of your investment if we are unsuccessful in our business plans.

 

We were incorporated in August 2001. In 2014 the Company developed into a Holding Company focusing on acquiring small to medium size Companies that meet the following criteria: 1, Profitable; 2. Good Management; 3. little to no debt. Our efforts are focused on development and growth of our existing subsidiary’s and acquiring new acquisitions that meet our requirements. Further, there is no guarantee that we will be successful in realizing revenues or in achieving or sustaining a positive cash flow at any time in the future. Any such failure could result in the possible closure of our business or force us to seek additional capital through loans or additional sales of our equity securities to continue business operations, which would dilute the value of any shares you hold, and could result in the loss of your entire investment.

 

Future acquisitions are important to our success. We may not be able to successfully integrate our acquisitions into our operations

 

The acquisition of new companies is central to our business model and critically important to our success. Although we generally seek companies that have positive cash flows, we cannot be certain that the company’s acquired will remain cash flow positive and could possibly lose revenues. In addition, there are no assurances that the acquisitions acquired will continue as profitable businesses and could adversely affect our business and any possible revenues.

 

Successful implementation of our business strategy depends on factors specific to acquiring successful businesses. Adverse changes in our acquisition process could undermine our business strategy and have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and results of operations and cash flow:

 

· The competitive environment in the specific field of business acquired; and

 

· Our ability to acquire the right businesses that meet customers’ needs; and

 

· Our ability to establish, maintain and eventually grow market share in a competitive environment.

 

 

 

 24 

 

 

There are no substantial barriers to acquire established businesses and because we can acquire businesses in all types of industries, there is no guarantee the Company will acquire additional businesses, which could severely limit our proposed sales and revenues. If we cannot acquire established businesses, it could result in the loss of your investment.

 

Since we have no copyright protection, unauthorized persons may attempt to copy aspects of our business, including our governance design or functionality, services or marketing materials. Any encroachment upon our corporate information, including the unauthorized use of our brand name, the use of a similar name by a competing company or a lawsuit initiated against us for infringement upon another company's proprietary information or improper use of their copyright, may affect our ability to create brand name recognition, cause customer confusion and/or have a detrimental effect on our business. Litigation or proceedings before the U.S. or International Patent and Trademark Offices may be necessary in the future to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets and domain name and/or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others. Any such infringement, litigation or adverse proceeding could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and could seriously harm our business operations and/or results of operations. As a result, an investor could lose his or her entire investment.

 

The loss of the services of the current officers and directors could severely impact our business operations and future development, which could result in a loss of revenues and one’s ability to ever sell any shares.

 

Our performance is substantially dependent upon the professional expertise of the current officers and board of directors. Each has extensive expertise in business development and acquisitions and we are dependent on their abilities. If they are unable to perform their duties, this could have an adverse effect on business operations, financial condition and operating results if we are unable to replace them with other individuals qualified to develop and market our business. The loss of their services could result in a loss of revenues, which could result in a reduction of the value of any shares you hold as well as the complete loss of your investment.

 

Our stock has limited liquidity.

 

Our common stock trades on the OTCQB market. Trading volume in our shares may be sporadic and the price could experience volatility. If adverse market conditions exist, you may have difficulty selling your shares.

 

The market price of our common stock may fluctuate significantly in response to numerous factors, some of which are beyond our control, including the following:

 

· actual or anticipated fluctuations in our operating results;
   
· changes in financial estimates by securities analysts or our failure to perform in line with such estimates;
   
· changes in market valuations of other companies, particularly those that market services such as ours;
   
· announcements by us or our competitors of significant innovations, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
   
· introduction of product enhancements that reduce the need for our products;
   
· departure of key personnel.

In general, buying low-priced penny stocks is very risky and speculative. Our shares are defined as a penny stock under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, and rules of the Commission. You may not able to sell your shares when you want to do so, if at all.

 

Our shares are defined as a penny stock under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, and rules of the Commission. The Exchange Act and such penny stock rules generally impose additional sales practice and disclosure requirements on broker-dealers who sell our securities to persons other than certain accredited investors who are, generally, institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 jointly with spouse, or in transactions not recommended by the broker-dealer. For transactions covered by the penny stock rules, a broker-dealer must make a suitability determination for each purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement prior to such sale. In addition, the broker-dealer must make certain mandated disclosures in penny stock transactions, including the actual sale or purchase price and actual bid and offer quotations, the compensation to be received by the broker-dealer and certain associated persons, and deliver certain disclosures required by the Commission. Consequently, the penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to make a market in or trade our common stock and may also affect your ability to resell any shares you may purchase in the public markets.

 

Because of our size and limited resources, we may have difficulty establishing adequate management, legal and financial controls, which we are required to do in order to comply with U.S. GAAP and securities laws, and which could cause a materially adverse impact on our financial statements, the trading of our common stock and our business.

 

We are a small holding company that lacks the financial resources and qualified personnel to implement and sustain adequate internal controls As a result, we may experience difficulty in establishing management, legal and financial controls, collecting financial data and preparing financial statements, books of account and corporate records and instituting business practices that meet proper internal control standards. Therefore, we may, in turn, experience difficulties in implementing and maintaining adequate internal controls as required under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This may result in significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in our internal controls which could impact the reliability of our financial statements and prevent us from complying with SEC rules and regulations and the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Any such deficiencies, material weaknesses or lack of compliance could result in restatements of our historical financial information, cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information, have an adverse impact on the trading price of our common stock, adversely affect our ability to access the capital markets and our ability to recruit personnel, lead to the delisting of our securities from the stock exchange on which they are traded, lead to litigation claims, thereby diverting management’s attention and resources, and which may lead to the payment of damages to the extent such claims are not resolved in our favor, lead to regulatory proceedings, which may result in sanctions, monetary or otherwise, and have a materially adverse effect on our reputation and business.

 

We do not expect to pay dividends on common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

We have not paid any cash dividends with respect to our common stock, and it is unlikely that we will pay any dividends on our common stock for the year. Earnings, if any, that we may realize will be retained in the business for further development and expansion.

The decrease in revenues for the three months and increase for the nine months from sales of pizza during this reporting period were attributable to the decrease in number of stores offset by a temporary increase earlier in the year. We currently have one pizza store open in 2018. The decrease in revenues from Repicci’s Group, is attributable to our strategy of focusing on franchise operations and management believes will be temporary. We have also included our new acquisitions, Platinum Tax Defenders and Red Rock Travel Group, since their acquisitions and revenues for August and September are included. Management has confidence that these acquisitions will improve our revenue significantly over time.

There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain sufficient capital from debt or equity transactions or from operations in the necessary time frame or on terms acceptable to us. Should we be unable to raise sufficient funds, we may be required to curtail our operating plans and possibly relinquish rights to portions of our technology or products. In addition, increases in expenses or delays in product development may adversely impact our cash position and may require cost reductions. No assurance can be given that we will be able to operate profitably on a consistent basis, or at all, in the future.

 

In order to continue our operations, development of our products, and implementation of our business plan, we need additional financing. We are currently attempting to obtain additional working capital in an equity transaction.
