Drone Aviation Holding Corp.

(FKA MacroSolve, Inc.)

Notes to Interim Unaudited Financial Statements

 

For the Period Ended September 30, 2014

 

 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial statements and do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. The information furnished reflects all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring items which are, in the opinion of management, necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading. The financial statements as of December 31, 2013 have been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included in Drone Aviation Holding Corp.’s (F/K/A MacroSolve, Inc.) (The “Company”) 10K for the calendar year ended December 31, 2013.

 

Description of Business:

 

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary Lighter Than Air Systems Corp. (LTAS), provides critical aerial and land-based surveillance and communications solutions to government and commercial customers. LTAS systems are designed and developed in-house utilizing proprietary technologies and processes that result in compact, rapidly deployable aerostat solutions and mast-based ISR systems. The LTAS systems are able to fulfill critical requirements of the military and law enforcement in the U.S. and internationally.

 

Use of Estimates:

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk:

 

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash and trade receivables. The Company places its cash with high credit quality financial institutions. At times such cash may be in excess of the FDIC limit. With respect to trade receivables, the Company routinely assesses the financial strength of its customers and, as a consequence, believes that the receivable credit risk exposure is limited.

 

Cash Equivalents:

 

Cash equivalents are represented by operating accounts or money market accounts maintained with insured financial institutions, including all highly-liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

 

Accounts Receivable and Credit Policies:

 

Trade accounts receivable consist of amounts due from the sale of tethered aerostats, accessories, spare parts and delivery and installation of aerostats.  Accounts receivable are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days of receipt of the invoice.  The Company provides an allowance for doubtful accounts equal to the estimated uncollectible amounts based on historical collection experience and a review of the current status of trade accounts receivable.  At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company deems $0 and $0 as uncollectible, respectively.

 

6
 

 

Marketable Securities:

 

All marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale securities. Available-for-sale securities are carried at fair value with resulting unrealized gains and losses, reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss. The Company did not have any available-for-sale securities at September 30, 2014.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market, using the first-in first-out method. Cost includes materials, labor and manufacturing overhead related to the purchase and production of inventories. We regularly review inventory quantities on hand, future purchase commitments with our supplies, and the estimated utility of our inventory. If the review indicates a reduction in utility below carrying value, we reduce our inventory to a new cost basis through a charge to cost of goods sold.

 

Long-Lived Assets & Goodwill:

 

The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360-10-35, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-lived Assets”.  This Statement requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.  If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.  No impairment charges were incurred during the periods ended September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.

 

The Company accounts for goodwill and intangible assets in accordance with ASC 350 "Intangibles Goodwill and Other". ASC 350 requires that goodwill and other intangibles with indefinite lives be tested for impairment annually or on an interim basis if events or circumstances indicate that the fair value of an asset has decreased below its carrying value.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments:

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a Black-Scholes option pricing model, in accordance with ASC 815-15 “Derivative and Hedging” to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

 

Beneficial Conversion Features:

 

The intrinsic value of a beneficial conversion feature inherent to a convertible note payable, which is not bifurcated and accounted for separately from the convertible note payable and may not be settled in cash upon conversion, is treated as a discount to the convertible note payable. This discount is amortized over the period from the date of issuance to the date the note is due using the effective interest method. If the note payable is retired prior to the end of its contractual term, the unamortized discount is expensed in the period of retirement to interest expense. In general, the beneficial conversion feature is measured by comparing the effective conversion price, after considering the relative fair value of detachable instruments included in the financing transaction, if any, to the fair value of the common shares at the commitment date to be received upon conversion.

 

7
 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

 

The Company measures its financial assets and liabilities in accordance with the requirements of FASB ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”. ASC 820 clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, marketable securities and listed equities.

 

Level 2 - Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date and includes those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Instruments in this category generally include non-exchange-traded derivatives such as commodity swaps, interest rate swaps, options and collars.

 

Level 3 – Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

 

The following table sets forth by level within the fair value hierarchy the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013:

 

Recurring Fair Value Measures  Level 1  Level 2  Level 3  Total
                     
September 30, 2014                    
Derivative liability  $0   $0   $0   $0 
Available-for-sale securities  $0   $0   $0   $0 
                     
December 31, 2013                    
Derivative liability  $0   $0   $0   $0 
Available-for-sale securities  $0   $0   $0   $0 

 

Revenue Recognition and Unearned Revenue:

 

The Company recognizes revenue when all four of the following criteria are met: 1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; 2) delivery has occurred and title has transferred or services have been rendered; 3) our price to the buyer is fixed or determinable; and 4) collectability is reasonably assured. We record unearned revenue as a liability and their associated costs of sales as work in process inventory. In 2014, the Company recognized $1,650 in revenue from a 2013 sale that was delivered in 2014. At September 30, 2014, the Company recorded $142,355 as deferred revenue and $94,470 as work in process inventory on a product order delivered in October 2014. There is a balance of $129,484 in accounts receivable at September 30, 2014 for sales on account.

 

8
 

 

Income Taxes:

 

The Company accounts for income taxes utilizing ASC 740, “Income Taxes” (SFAS No. 109).  ASC 740 requires the measurement of deferred tax assets for deductible temporary differences and operating loss carry forwards, and of deferred tax liabilities for taxable temporary differences.  Measurement of current and deferred tax liabilities and assets is based on provisions of enacted tax law.  The effects of future changes in tax laws or rates are not included in the measurement.  The Company recognizes the amount of taxes payable or refundable for the current year and recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events and transactions that have been recognized in the Company’s financial statements or tax returns.  The Company has recorded a 100% valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets due to uncertainty of their ultimate realization.  Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

Employee Stock-Based Compensation:

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation”. ASC 718 requires companies to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments, including stock options, based on the grant-date fair value of the award and to recognize it as compensation expense over the period the employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award, usually the vesting period.

 

Non-Employee Stock-Based Compensation:

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with the provision of ASC 505, “Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees” (“ASC 505”), which requires that such equity instruments are recorded at their fair value on the measurement date.

2. MERGER BETWEEN MACROSOLVE, INC. AND DRONE AVIATION HOLDING CORP

 

On April 14, 2014, a majority of shareholders of MacroSolve, Inc. (“MacroSolve) common stock approved a plan of merger whereby MacroSolve would merge with Drone Aviation Holding Corp., its newly created wholly-owned Nevada subsidiary, for the purpose of the redomestication. Pursuant to the redomestication, the shareholders approved a share consolidation, whereby MacroSolve’s shareholders would receive one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share of the Nevada subsidiary for every 50.56186 shares of MacroSolve’s common stock (the Merger Exchange Rate). The approved merger and redomestication occurred on April 30, 2014.

 

Prior to the Merger, MacroSolve had 198,219,132 shares of common stock issued and outstanding. Subsequent to the Merger, as a result of the Merger Exchange Ratio described above, Drone Aviation Holding Corp. had approximately 3,920,700 shares of common stock issued and outstanding on April 30, 2014.

 

On April 30, 2014 as a result of the merger, MacroSolve’s preferred stock Series C, D and D-1 were reissued as Drone Aviation Holding Corp. preferred stock Series A, B and B-1 with 595,000 shares, 324,671 shares and 156,231 shares issued respectively.

 

3. DRONE AVIATION CORP AQUISITION OF LIGHTER THAN AIR SYSTEMS  

 

On March 31, 2014, Drone Aviation Corp. (DAC) was incorporated in the state of Nevada. During April and May 2014, investors purchased 34,100,000 shares of DAC common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $653,327. On May 5, 2014, DAC entered into an agreement with World Surveillance Group, Inc. (WSGI) to purchase 100% of WSGI’s interest in its subsidiary, Lighter Than Air Systems (LTAS), of Jacksonville, Florida. LTAS provides critical aerial and land-based surveillance and communications solutions to government and commercial customers. DAC paid $335,000 and issued 10,000,000 shares of its common stock valued at the market price on the respective dates of issuance, and the fair value of the shares was determined to be $79,000, or a total of $414,000, to WSGI as consideration for LTAS. Since the Company acquired cash of $30,361 from LTAS, as shown in the following table, the net cash amount the Company paid is $304,639.

 

In accordance with ASC 805-10 Business Combination and purchase acquisition accounting, DAC initially allocated the consideration to the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets, based on their estimated fair values as of the date of acquisition. Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the underlying net tangible and intangible assets. The following preliminary table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date.

 

Property and equipment  $1,638 
Accounts receivable    135,050 
Cash in bank   30,361 
Due from related party    20,650 
Prepaid expenses    1,382 
Inventory    72,974 
Intangible asset   135,550

6. PREFERRED STOCK

 

All of the preferred stock of the Company is convertible into common shares. The Series A and Series C Preferred Stock conversion ratio is 100 to 1. The Series B, B-1, D, E and F Preferred Stock conversion ratio is 1 to 1. The conversion price of Series B stock may be adjusted if a ‘dilutive triggering event’ occurs which could happen if the Company were to sell or issue common stock, warrants or convertible securities without consideration or for a consideration per share less than the conversion price in effect immediately prior to such sale or issue (dilutive triggering price). In such case, the Series B conversion price would be reduced to a price equal to the dilutive triggering price. All preferred stock has voting rights equal to the number of shares it would have on an ‘as if converted’ basis. All preferred stock is entitled to dividends rights equal to the number of shares it would have on an ‘as if converted’ basis. None of the preferred stock is redeemable, participating nor callable.

 

The Company analyzed the embedded conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 “Derivatives and Hedging” and determined that the conversion option should be classified as equity.

 

The Company analyzed the conversion option for beneficial conversion features consideration under ASC 470-20 “Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features” and noted Series F Preferred Stock contained a beneficial conversion feature. See discussion below.

 

Between June 4 and June 30, 2014, seven holders of Series A Preferred Stock converted a total of 38,100 shares of Series A Preferred Stock for 3,810,000 shares of restricted common stock in accordance with their conversion rights which includes a blocker with respect to individual ownership percentages.

The Series B-1 Preferred Stock contains a liquidation provision whereas in the event of a fundamental transaction (such as the merger which occurred on June 3, 2014), the shareholder has the option to receive a preferential amount of cash equal to 400% of the stated value per share. On June 6, 2014, the sole holder of Series B-1 stock liquidated 87,500 shares for $350,000 leaving a remaining balance of 68,731 shares of Series B-1 preferred outstanding.

 

Series F Preferred Private Placement

 

On August 27, 2014, the Company sold an aggregate of 1,100,333 units in a private placement of its securities to certain investors at a purchase price of $0.75 per unit pursuant to subscription for an aggregate purchase price of $822,750, net of $2,500 financing fees. Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share, each of which is convertible into one share of Common Stock, with such rights and designations as set forth in the Certificate of Designation. The Company evaluated the convertible preferred stock under FASB ASC 470-20-30 and determined it contained a beneficial conversion feature. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion feature was determined to be $192,558. The beneficial conversion feature was fully amortized and recorded as a deemed dividend.

During September 2014, the holders of these options voluntarily agreed to terminate their options. At September 30, 2014 there are no outstanding options.

 

On April 30, 2014, the merger date between MacroSolve and Drone Aviation Holding Corp. and effective date of the Merger Exchange Ratio, there were a total of 673,683 warrants carried over to the reverse merger with Drone Aviation Corp. on June 3, 2014 with strike prices ranging from $2.53 to $16.57. A total of 188,676 of these warrants with strike prices of $5.06 expired between July and September 2014 leaving a total of 485,007 outstanding warrants.

The 1,700,000 warrants were exercised for cash in July 2014 for a total of $17,000. As further described above in Note 4, on June 3, 2014, the Company issued 2,700,000 warrants to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per warrant share to investors who purchased Series E Preferred Stock. The exercise price of $1.00 per warrant may be adjusted any time during the first twenty-four months from issuance under the terms of a Favored Nations Provision contained in the warrant. If at any time during that twenty-four month period the Company should issue common stock or convertible securities at a price lower than $1.00 per share, unless the warrant holder consents to such lower price issuance, then the exercise price of the warrant shall be automatically reduced to reflect such other lower price and the number of warrant securities shall be adjusted to reflect such lower price. The warrants expire on June 3, 2017. In August 2014, all seven investors holding the warrants attached to Series E Preferred Stock executed cashless exercises of their warrants resulting in the issuance of 372,414 shares of restricted common stock.

 

Because these warrants have full reset adjustments tied to future issuances of equity securities by the Company, they are subject to derivative liability treatment under ASC 815-40-15 “Determining whether an Instrument (or Embedded feature) is Indexed to an Entity’s Own Stock.” ASC 815-40-15 requires as of the date the warrant is issued, the derivative liability to be measured at fair value and re-evaluated at the end of each reporting period.

 

13
 

 

As of June 3, 2014, the fair value of the warrants derivative liability is $2,159,824 – see Note #4. On August 26, 2014, when the warrants were exercised, the Company determined the fair value of the derivative liability to be $2,510,793, and upon warrant exercise, the derivative liability was written off to additional paid in capital.

As a result of the warrant exercises, as of September 30, 2014, the fair value of the warrants derivative liability is $0, and the Company recognized a loss on derivative liability of $350,969 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The fair value of the derivative liability was estimated at the date of grant and the date of warrant exercised using a Black-Scholes option pricing model.

As of June 3, 2014 (the closing of the Share Exchange with Drone Aviation Corp.), we are focused on the business of the design, development, marketing and sale of lighter-than air (“LTA”) advanced aersostats and land-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (“ISR”) solutions and tethered drones. Drone Aviation Corp. (our wholly owned subsidiary) (“Drone”) through its wholly owned subsidiary, Lighter Than Air Systems Corp. (“LTAS”), is focused on the development of a series of tethered aerostats known as the Blimp in a Box® (“BiB”) system and the Winch Aerostat Small Platform (“WASP”) as well as certain other tethered drone products. The BiB system is a lighter-than-air, compact aerostat platform either self-contained on a trailer that can be towed by an MATV or MRAP or other standard vehicle, or it can operate from the bed of a pickup truck. It is designed to provide semi-persistent, mobile, real-time day/night high definition footage for “ISR”, detection of improvised explosive devices (“IEDs”), border security and other governmental and civilian uses. The WASP is a mobile, tactical-sized aerostat capable of carrying a variety of payloads in support of military operations. Both the BiB and the WASP can also be utilized for disaster response missions, by supporting two-way and cellular communications, by acting as a repeater or providing wireless networking.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had total current assets of $2,208,000 and total current liabilities of $346,000 for working capital of $1,862,000. As of September 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1,897,000 and an accumulated deficit of $(1,463,000).

 

We have historically financed our operations through operating revenues and sales of equity and debt securities to accredited investors. While we currently believe we have sufficient capital to continue our operations for the next 12 months, we may incur significant expenses in implementing our growth plan.  We could deplete our cash and working capital more rapidly than expected, which could result in our need to curtail our operations.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, and results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The Company’s accounting policies are more fully described in Note 1 of the Financial Statements. As disclosed in Note 1, the preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates. The Company believes that the following discussion addresses the Company’s most critical accounting policies, which are those that are most important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations and require management’s most difficult, subjective and complex judgments.

 

 Accounts Receivable and Credit Policies:

 

Trade accounts receivable consist of amounts due from the sale of tethered aerostats, accessories, spare parts and delivery and installation of aerostats. Accounts receivable are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days of receipt of the invoice.  The Company provides an allowance for doubtful accounts equal to the estimated uncollectible amounts based on historical collection experience and a review of the current status of trade accounts receivable.  

 

Derivative Financial Instruments:

 

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses a Black-Scholes option pricing model, in accordance with ASC 815-15 “Derivative and Hedging” to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

Revenue Recognition and Unearned Income:

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not effective, accounting standards, if currently adopted, would have a material effect on the Company's financial statements.

 

ITEM 4 - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

  

Based on our evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of September 30, 2014, our disclosure controls and procedures are designed at a reasonable assurance level and are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
