NOTE 1: DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Business Activity

 

Creative Management Group, Inc. was formed in Delaware on August 13, 2002 as a limited liability company named Creative Management Group, LLC. On August 7, 2007, this entity converted to a corporation and changed its legal name to Creative Management Group Inc.  The Company is a sports, entertainment, marketing and management company providing event management implementation, sponsorships, licensing and broadcast, production and syndication.

 

On February 20, 2008, Creative Management Group, Inc. formed CMG Acquisitions, Inc., a Delaware company, for the purpose of acquiring companies and expansion strategies. On February 20, 2008, Creative Management Group, Inc. acquired 92.6% of Pebble Beach Enterprises, Inc. (a publicly traded company) and changed the name to CMG Holdings Group, Inc. (“the Company”). The purpose of the acquisition was to effect a reverse merger with Pebble Beach Enterprises, Inc. at a later date. On May 27, 2008, Pebble Beach entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization with its controlling shareholder, Creative Management Group, Inc., a privately held Delaware corporation. Upon closing the eighty shareholders of Creative Management Group delivered all of their equity interests in Creative Management Group to Pebble Beach in exchange for shares of common stock in Pebble Beach owned by Creative Management Group, as a result of which Creative Management Group became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pebble Beach. The shareholders of Creative Management Group received one share of Pebble Beach’s common stock previously owned by Creative Management Group for each issued and outstanding common share owned of Creative Management Group. As a result, the 22,135,148 shares of Pebble Beach that were issued and previously owned by Creative Management Group, are now owned directly by its shareholders. The 22,135,148 shares of Creative Management Group previously owned by its shareholders are now owned by Pebble Beach, thereby making Creative Management Group a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pebble Beach. Pebble Beach did not issue any new shares as part of the Reorganization. The transaction was accounted for as a reverse merger and recapitalization whereby Creative Management Group is the accounting acquirer. Pebble Beach was renamed CMG Holdings Group, Inc.

 

On April 1, 2009, the Company, through a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary CMGO Capital, Inc., a Nevada corporation, completed the acquisition of XA, The Experiential Agency, Inc. On March 31, 2010, the Company and AudioEye, Inc. (“AudioEye”) completed the final Stock Purchase Agreement under which the Company acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of AudioEye. On June 22, 2011 the Company entered into a Master Agreement subject to shareholder approval as may be required under applicable law and subject to closing conditions with AudioEye Acquisition Corp., a Nevada corporation where the shareholders of AudioEye Acquisition Corp. exchanged 100% of the stock in AudioEye Acquisition Corp for 80% of the capital stock of AudioEye. The Company retained 15% of AudioEye subject to transfer restrictions in accordance with the Master Agreement; on October 2012, the Company distributed to its shareholders, in the form of a dividend, 5% of the capital stock of AudioEye in accordance with provisions of the Master Agreement.

 

On March 28, 2014, CMG Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “CMG”), completed its acquisition of 100% of the shares of Good Gaming, Inc. (“GGI”) by entering into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “SEA”) with BMB Financial, Inc. and Jackie Beckford, the then shareholders of GGI. The sole owner of BMB Financial, Inc. is also the sole owner of Infinite Alpha, Inc. which provides consulting services to CMG. Pursuant to the SEA, the Company received 100% of the shares of GGI in exchange for 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, $33,000 in equipment and consultant compensation and a commitment to pay $200,000 in development costs, of which $50,000 of the development costs had been advanced by the Company.  In addition, pursuant to the SEA, CMG shall adopt an incentive plan for GGI which shall entitle the GGI officers, directors and employees to receive up to 30% of the net profits of GGI and up to 30% of the proceeds, in the event of a sale of GGI or its assets.

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of CMG Holdings Group, Inc., XA, The Experiential Agency, Inc. ("XA") and GGI after elimination of all significant inter-company accounts and transactions.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 revenues and expenses during the period reported. Estimates are used when accounting for allowance for doubtful accounts, depreciation, and contingencies. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentrations of Risk

 

The Company maintains its cash balances at two financial institutions where they are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000 each. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, neither of these accounts was in excess of the limit. The Company also maintains a money market investment account at one securities firm where the account is insured by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation up to $500,000 for the bankruptcy, etc., of the securities firm. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the account had no balance in excess of the limit. For the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and the year ended December 31, 2013, one customer exceeds 10% of the Company’s total revenue, representing 88% and 72% of the Company’s total revenues, respectively.

 

Revenue and Cost Recognition

 

The Company earns revenues by providing event management services under individually negotiated contracts with varying terms, recognizing revenue in accordance with ASC 605, Revenue Recognition, only when the price is fixed or determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the services have been provided and collectability is assured.   In arrangements where key indicators suggest the Company acts as principal, the Company records the gross amount billed to the client as revenue and the related costs incurred as cost of revenues as the services are provided.

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Accounts receivable are amounts due from event management services, are unsecured and are carried at their estimated collectible amounts. Credit is generally extended on a short-term basis and do not bear interest, although a finance charge may be applied to amounts outstanding more than thirty days. Accounts receivable are periodically evaluated for collectability based on past credit history with clients. Provisions for losses on accounts receivable are determined on the basis of loss experience, known and inherent risk in the account balance and current economic conditions.  There were no allowances for doubtful accounts as of June 30, 2014 or December 31, 2013.

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for share-based compensation to employees in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 718-10, Stock Compensation(“ASC 718-10”) and share-based compensation to non-employees in accordance with ASC 505-50Accounting for Equity Instruments Issued to Non-Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services. ASC 718-10 and 505-50 require the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards, including stock options based on the estimated fair values.

Derivative Instruments

 

The Company accounts for derivative instruments in accordance with ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and all derivative instruments are reflected as either assets or liabilities at fair value in the balance sheet.

 

The Company uses estimates of fair value to value its derivative instruments. Fair value is defined as the price to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between willing and able market participants. In general, the Company’s policy in estimating fair values is to first look at observable market prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets, where available. When these are not available, other inputs are used to model fair value such as prices of similar instruments, yield curves, volatilities, prepayment speeds, default rates and credit spreads (including for the Company’s liabilities), relying first on observable data from active markets. Additional adjustments may be made for factors including liquidity, credit, bid/offer spreads, etc., depending on current market conditions. Transaction costs are not included in the determination of fair value. When possible, The Company seeks to validate the model’s output to market transactions. Depending on the availability of observable inputs and prices, different valuation models could produce materially different fair value estimates. The values presented may not represent future fair values and may not be realizable. The Company categorizes its fair value estimates in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements (ASC 820), based on the hierarchical framework associated with the three levels of price transparency utilized in measuring financial instruments.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all short-term debt securities purchased with maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets, which is generally between three and five years. Depreciation expense was $0 and $0 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are stated at cost, net of accumulated amortization. Amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the respective asset, which is three years. Amortization expense was $0 and $0 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability approach. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amounts expected to be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share

 

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

ASC 820 and ASC 825, Financial Instruments (ASC 825), requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. It establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. It prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

 

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. Level 2 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 Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities. Pursuant to ASC 820 and 825, the fair value of cash is determined based on “Level 1” inputs, which consist of quoted prices in active markets for identical assets. The recorded values of all other financial instruments approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations.

 

The following table sets forth by level with the fair value hierarchy the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013:

  

June 30, 2014 Level 1  Level 2  Level 3  Total

Investments in Debt and Equity Securities

 

The Company applies the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification 320, Investments – Debt and Equity Securities, regarding marketable securities. The Company invests in securities that are intended to be bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term, and as a result, classifies such investments as trading securities. Trading securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet with changes in fair value being reflected as unrealized gains or losses in the current period. In addition, the Company classifies the cash flows from purchases, sales, and maturities of trading securities as cash flows from operating activities.

 

Details of the Company's marketable trading securities as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 are as follows:

Preferred Stock

 

Series B Preferred Stock and Inventory Purchase

 

On March 31, 2011 the Company acquired 20,000 cartoon animated cels (the “Cel Art”) from Continental Investments Group, Inc. (the “Agreement”). The Company issued 50,000 shares of its Series B Convertible Preferred Stock to Continental Investments Group, Inc. as consideration for the Cel Art, such shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock having a stated value per share of $100. The Cel Art consists of collectible, hand-painted cartoon animation cels. The shares of Series B Preferred Stock are convertible into common shares of the Company at the stated value of $100 per share divided by the volume weighted average trading price for the 30 days prior to conversion. The preferred shares are non-voting and do not receive dividends. The Company determined the fair value of the preferred stock to be $3,240,502 on the acquisition date based on the number of shares of common stock the preferred shares could be converted into and the market price of the common stock on the agreement date. The cartoon animated cels are valued at the lower of cost or market. As of December 31, 2011, Management wrote down the inventory to zero. The Company also analyzed the embedded conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 and determined that the conversion option should be classified as equity.  During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company determined that due to uncertainties related to future sales of the Cel Art, the entire balance should be reserved as of December 31, 2011.

 

During August 2013, the Company entered into a Termination Agreement and Release (the “Agreement”) with Continental Investments Group (Continental), the holder of a $85,000 convertible note payable of the Company and the holder of 2,500,000 shares of restricted common stock.  The Agreement calls for the termination and cancellation of a Sale and Purchase agreement, whereby the Company agreed to issue 50,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock in exchange for 20,000 cartoon animated Cels. The Agreement also calls for the cancellation of the $85,000 convertible note and related interest and for Continental to return the 2,500,000 shares of restricted common stock.

NOTE 3 - NOTES PAYABLE

On May 12, 2012, the Company modified its July 24, 2011 agreement with Paul Sherman into a $9,943 convertible promissory note bearing interest at 2% and due on May 15, 2013. The convertible promissory note is convertible at a price equal to the close price on the day prior to Paul Sherman’s request for conversion, but not to go below $.001. The Company analyzed the conversion option for derivative accounting consideration under ASC 815-15 and determined that the instrument should be classified as a liability.

The discount balance was $0 and $0 as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively.  Amortization of $0 and $3,376 was recognized as interest expense during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

 

 

Since the departure of Ron Burkhardt, XA continues to grow, hiring several new staff members to further meet the varied needs of our growing clientele. Instead of relying on only a few large scale projects each year, XA’s new generation of event planners are seeking to broaden the client base.  Current projects include international charity galas and initiatives, large-scale multi city brand awareness tours; professional sports based technologically innovative installations and re-branding and programming for luxury hospitality groups.

Good Gaming has engaged Caxy Interactive as its web developer as of April, 2014. Good Gaming is currently in Iteration 4 of the design process for its web platform and updated media/splash page. The overall user interface look and feel has been locked in for PC and Mobile web browsing.

ITEM 4 - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of June 30, 2014. Based upon such evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of June 3, 2014, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the identification of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting which is identified below, which we view as an integral part of our disclosure controls and procedures. This conclusion by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer does not relate to reporting periods after December 31, 2013.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2014 based on the framework stated by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO 1992). Furthermore, due to our financial situation, the Company will be implementing further internal controls as the Company becomes operative so as to fully comply with the standards set by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act. Our internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes, in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Because of inherent limitations, a system of internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate due to change in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Based on its evaluation as of December 31, 2013, our management concluded that our internal controls over financial reporting were not effective as of December 31, 2013 due to the identification of a material weakness. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of control deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. At any time, if it appears that any control can be implemented to continue to mitigate such weaknesses, it is immediately implemented. As soon as our finances allow, we will hire sufficient accounting staff and implement appropriate procedures for monitoring and review of work performed by our Chief Financial Officer.

 

In performing this assessment, management has identified the following material weaknesses as of December 31, 2013:

 

 

There is a lack of segregation of duties necessary for a good system of internal control due to insufficient accounting staff due to the size of the Company

 

 

Lack of a formal review process that includes multiple levels of reviews

 

 

Employees and management lack the qualifications and training to fulfill their assigned accounting and reporting functions

 

 Inadequate design of controls over significant accounts and processes

 

 

Inadequate documentation of the components of internal control in general

 

 

Failure in the operating effectiveness over controls related to valuing and recording equity based payments to employees and non-employees

 

 Failure in the operating effectiveness over controls related to valuing and recording debt instruments including those with conversion options and the related embedded derivative liabilities

 

 

Failure in the operating effectiveness over controls related to recording revenue and expense transactions in the proper period

 

 Failure in the operating effectiveness over controls related to evaluating and recording related party transactions

 

The Company is not required by current SEC rules to include, and does not include, an auditor's attestation report. The Company's registered public accounting firm has not attested to Management's reports on the Company's internal control over financial reporting.  As of June 30, 2014 no changes have occurred.

 

CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

On April 7, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Mr. Glenn Laken as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Jeffrey Devlin remained as the Company’s acting Chief Financial Officer.

 

Except for the above, no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting occurred during the period ended June 30, 2014, that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company s internal control over financial reporting.
