Note 1 – Description of Business

 

AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (“AgEagle” or “the Company”) designs, produces and supports technologically-advanced small, unmanned aerial vehicles (“UAVs” or “drones”). In addition, to providing new utility to UAVs, the Company pioneers and innovates advanced aerial imaging data collection and analytics technologies capable of addressing the impending food and environmental sustainability crises that threaten our planet. Historically, the Company’s daily efforts have focused on delivering the tools and strategies necessary to define and implement commercial drone construction and delivery, along with sustainability and precision farming solutions that solve important problems confronting the global agricultural industry. In fact, AgEagle, has spent ten years serving customers covering more than two million acres in 50 countries and monitoring 53 different crops. AgEagle remains intent on earning distinction as a trusted partner to clients seeking to adopt and support productive agricultural approaches to better farming practices which limit the impact on our natural resources, reduce reliance on inputs and materially increase crop yields and profits.

 

In addition to UAV sales, in late 2018, the Company introduced a new drone-leasing program, alleviating farmers and agribusinesses from significant upfront costs associated with purchasing a drone, while also relieving them from ongoing drone maintenance and support requirements. Additionally, the new program provides the option of engaging a trained AgEagle pilot to operate the drone and manage the entire image collection process, creating a true turnkey aerial imagery capture solution for its customers.

 

In the first half of 2019, the Company introduced HempOverview, a scalable, responsive and cost-effective Software-as-a-Solution (“SaaS”) web- and map-based technology platform to support the operations of domestic industrial hemp programs for state and tribal nation departments of agriculture, growers and processors – a solution that provides users with what the Company believes is the gold standard for regulatory oversight, operational assistance and reporting capabilities for the fast emerging industrial hemp industry.

 

In the third quarter of 2019, AgEagle announced that it had begun to actively pursue expansion opportunities within the emerging Drone Logistics and Transportation market and revealed that it had received its first purchase orders from a major ecommerce company to manufacture and assemble UAVs designed to meet the critical specifications for drones that are meant to carry packaged goods in urban and suburban areas.

 

Central to the Company’s long-term growth strategy, AgEagle will continue to identify opportunities to leverage its proprietary technological platform and industry expertise to penetrate new, high growth market sectors that may benefit from the Company’s advanced aerial imagery-based data collection and analytics solutions.

Note 1 – Description of Business – Continued

 

Corporate History; Recent Business Combination

 

On March 26, 2018, our predecessor company, EnerJex Resources, Inc. (“EnerJex”), a Nevada company, consummated the transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated October 19, 2017, pursuant to which AgEagle Merger Sub, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex, merged with and into AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc., a privately held company organized under the laws of the state of Nevada (“AgEagle Sub”), with AgEagle Sub surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EnerJex (the “Merger”). In connection with the Merger, EnerJex changed its name to AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (the “Company, “we,” “our,” or “us”) and AgEagle Sub changed its name initially to “Eagle Aerial, Inc. and then to” AgEagle Aerial, Inc.

 

On August 28, 2018, we closed the transaction contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement dated July 25, 2018 with AgEagle Aerial, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company; Agribotix, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“Agribotix” or the “Seller”); and the other parties named therein. Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, we acquired all right, title and interest in and to all assets owned by Agribotix, which included Agribotix’s primary product, FarmLens™, utilized in their business for providing integrated agricultural drone solutions and drone-enabled software technologies and services for precision agriculture.

 

The Company believes that purchasing FarmLens benefitted us and our shareholders by developing important vertically integrated products and services. FarmLens is a subscription cloud analytics service that processes data, primarily collected with a drone such as those produced by AgEagle; and makes such data actionable by farmers and agronomists. FarmLens is currently sold by AgEagle as a subscription service and offered either standalone or in a bundle with drone platforms manufactured by leading drone providers like AgEagle, DJI and senseFly.

 

To date, FarmLens has processed agricultural imagery for approximately two million acres of crops and analyzed data for over 53 different crop types from over 50 countries around the world.

 

In late September 2020, the Company began relocating its headquarters and drone manufacturing operations from Neodesha, Kansas to Wichita, Kansas.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (“WHO”) announced a global health emergency because of a new strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) and the risks to the international community as the virus spreads globally. On March 11, 2020, the WHO classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic, based on the rapid increase in exposure globally. In response to the pandemic, many states and jurisdictions in which we operate have issued stay-at-home orders and other measures aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus. We initially closed our offices only and had our executive and administrative staff work remotely. Our manufacturing operations continued operating however we experienced delays with some of our ongoing projects in terms of completion due to vendor delays. We continue to follow guidance from local authorities in determining the appropriate restrictions to put in place for our offices and manufacturing facility, such as social distancing and limited capacities, to ensure the health and safety of our employees. As of the date of this filing, our locations and primary suppliers continue to operate. We may experience constrained supply or other business disruptions that could materially impact our business, results of operations and overall financial performance in future periods.

Accordingly, the condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and notes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of the financial position and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2019 and included in the Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 13, 2020. It is management’s opinion that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made, which are necessary for a fair financial statement presentation. The results for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020.

 

Basis of Presentation and Consolidation  These interim condensed consolidated statements are presented in United States dollars and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The Company has elected a December 31 fiscal year end.

 

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries AgEagle Aerial, Inc., EnerJex Kansas, Inc., Black Sable Energy, LLC and Black Raven Energy, Inc., which was dissolved effective November 2019. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The summary of significant accounting policies presented below is designed to assist in understanding the Company’s interim condensed consolidated financial statements. Such interim condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are the representations of the Company’s management, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) in all material respects and have been consistently applied in preparing the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

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 and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include the reserve for obsolete inventory, valuation of stock issued for services and stock options, useful life of intangible assets and property and equipment, and the valuation of deferred tax assets.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments – Unless otherwise disclosed, the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, approximates their recorded values due to their short-term maturities.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents – Cash and cash equivalents includes any highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. The Company held no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2020 or December 31, 2019. The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. The Company’s bank balances at times may exceed the FDIC limit. To date, the Company has not experienced any losses on its invested cash.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – Continued

 

Receivables and Credit Policy Trade receivables due from customers are uncollateralized customer obligations due under normal trade terms requiring payment within 30 days from the invoice date. Terms with our distributor allow for payment terms of 45 days from the invoice date. Trade receivables are stated at the amount billed to the customer. The Company generally does not charge interest on overdue customer account balances. Payments of trade receivables are allocated to the specific invoices identified on the customer’s remittance advice or, if unspecified, are applied to the earliest unpaid invoices.

 

The Company estimates an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon an evaluation of the current status of receivables, historical experience and other factors, as necessary. It is reasonably possible that the Company’s estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts will change. The Company determined that no allowance was necessary as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

 

Inventories  Inventories, which consist of raw materials, finished goods and work-in-process, are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined by the average-cost method, which approximates the first-in, first-out method. Cost components include direct materials and direct labor, as well as in-bound freight. At each balance sheet date, the Company evaluates its ending inventories for excess quantities and obsolescence. This evaluation primarily includes an analysis of forecasted demand in relation to the inventory on hand, among consideration of other factors. The physical condition (e.g., age and quality) of the inventories is also considered in establishing its valuation. Based upon the evaluation, provisions are made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their estimated net realizable values. Once established, write-downs are considered permanent adjustments to the cost basis of the respective inventories. These adjustments are estimates, which could vary significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from the amounts that the Company may ultimately realize upon the disposition of inventories if future economic conditions, customer inventory levels, product discontinuances, sales return levels or competitive conditions differ from the Company’s estimates and expectations. As of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had recorded a provision for obsolescence of $10,000.

 

Goodwill and Intangible Assets – The assets and liabilities of acquired businesses are recorded under the acquisition method of accounting at their estimated fair values at the date of acquisition. Goodwill represents costs in excess of fair values assigned to the underlying identifiable net assets of acquired businesses. Goodwill is not subject to amortization and is tested annually for the impairment, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of the goodwill may not be recoverable.

 

Intangible assets from acquired businesses are recognized at fair value on the acquisition date and consist of customer programs, trademarks, customer relationships, technology and other intangible assets. Customer programs include values assigned to major programs of acquired businesses and represent the aggregate value associated with the customer relationships, contracts, technology and trademarks underlying the associated program and are amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of expected cash flows used to measure fair value, which ranges from four to five years.

Revenue Recognition and Concentration – The majority of the Company’s revenue is generated pursuant to written contractual arrangements to develop, manufacture and/or modify complex drone-related products, and to provide associated engineering, technical and other services according to customer specifications. These contracts are at a fixed price and are accounted for in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”). Under fixed-price contracts, the Company agrees to perform the specified work for a pre-determined price. To the extent the Company’s actual costs vary from the estimates upon which the price was negotiated, it will generate more or less profit or could incur a loss. The Company accounts for a contract after it has been approved by all parties to the arrangement, the rights of the parties are identified, payment terms are identified, the contract has commercial substance and collectability of consideration is probable.

 

The Company generally recognizes revenue on sales to customers, dealers and distributors upon satisfaction of performance obligations, which generally occurs once controls transfer to customers, which is when product is shipped or delivered depending on specific shipping terms. Additionally, customers are required to place a deposit or pay upon shipping for each UAV or drone delivery assembly part ordered. Customer payments received in advance of the Company completing performance obligations are recorded as contract liabilities.

 

Subscription services for use of the Company’s proprietary FarmLens and HempOverview platforms are recognized ratably over the membership period as the services are provided.

 

Sales concentration information for customers comprising more than 10% of the Company’s total net sales is summarized below:

 

  Percent of total sales for nine months
ended September 30,
Customers 2020 2019
Customer A  94.4%  55.8%
Customer B     12.2%

 

No accounts receivables were due from Customer A or B as of September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.

 

The table below reflects our revenue for the periods indicated by product mix.

 

  For the nine months ended September 30,
Type 2020 2019
Drone Assembly and Product Sales $1,105,971  $84,745 
Software Platform Sales  51,959   23,040 
Total $1,157,930  $107,785 

 

Vendor Concentration As of September 30, 2020, there was one significant vendor that the Company relies upon to perform stitching in its FarmLens platform. This vendor provides services to the Company which can be replaced by alternative vendors should the need arise.

Shipping Costs Shipping costs for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $98 and $240, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, shipping costs totaled $6,122 and $1,271, respectively. All shipping costs billed directly to the customer are directly offset to shipping costs resulting in a net expense to the Company, which is included in cost of goods sold on the condensed interim statements of operations.

 

Earnings Per Share  Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholder by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholder by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus common stock equivalents (if dilutive) related to warrants, options and convertible instruments.

 

Potentially Dilutive Securities  The Company has excluded all common equivalent shares outstanding for warrants, options and convertible instruments to purchase common stock from the calculation of diluted net loss per share because all such securities are antidilutive for the periods presented. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, the Company had 3,022,254 warrants, and 2,110,154 options to purchase common stock outstanding. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, the Company had 4,531,924 warrants, 2,270,665 options to purchase common stock, and 3,636 shares of Series C Preferred Stock which were convertible into 6,733,333 shares of common stock.

 

Income Taxes – The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) ASC Topic 740, Accounting for Income Taxes. This topic requires an asset and liability approach for accounting for income taxes. The Company evaluates its tax positions that have been taken or are expected to be taken on income tax returns to determine if an accrual is necessary for uncertain tax positions. The Company will recognize future accrued interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense if incurred. All income tax returns not filed more than three years ago are subject to federal and state tax examinations by tax authorities.

 

Stock-Based Compensation Awards The Company accounts for its stock-based awards in accordance with ASC Subtopic 718-10, “Compensation – Stock Compensation,” which requires fair value measurement on the grant date and recognition of compensation expense for all stock-based payment awards made to employees and directors. For stock options, the Company estimates the fair value using a closed option valuation (Black-Scholes) model. The estimated fair value is then expensed over the requisite service period of the award, which is generally the vesting period, and the related amount is recognized in the consolidated statements of operations. The Company recognizes forfeitures at the time they occur.

 

The Black-Scholes option-pricing model requires the input of certain assumptions that require the Company’s judgment, including the expected term and the expected stock price volatility of the underlying stock. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based compensation represent management’s best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of judgment. As a result, if factors change resulting in the use of different assumptions, stock-based compensation expense could be materially different in the future.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Adopted

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which addresses certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial statements. The Company’s adoption of ASU No. 2016-01 effective January 1, 2019 did not have a material impact on the condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, FASB issued Account Standards Update 2016-02 – Leases (Topic 842) intended to improve financial reporting of leasing transactions whereby lessees will need to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for virtually all their leases. Under the new guidance, a lessee will be required to recognize assets and liabilities for leases with lease terms of more than 12 months. Consistent with current GAAP, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. However, unlike current GAAP — which requires only capital leases to be recognized on the balance sheet — the new ASU will require both types of leases to be recognized on the balance sheet. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2019 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed interim consolidated financial statements as the Company currently has no leases with a term of more than twelve months at the time of adoption

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350). The update simplifies the process for assessing goodwill for impairment. The amended guidance removes the second step that was previously required. Under this ASU, impairment charges to goodwill are based on the excess of a reporting unit’s carrying value to its fair value. ASU 2017-04 is effective for us for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021, with early adoption permitted for periods beginning after January 1, 2017. The Company adopted ASU 2017-04 on January 1, 2019 and applied the guidance to the annual impairment test (see Note 5).

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820). This ASU removes or modifies current disclosures while adding certain new disclosure requirements. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods therein, with early adoption permitted for the removed or modified disclosures. The removed and modified disclosures can be adopted retrospectively, and the added disclosures should be adopted prospectively. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2020 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

Note 5 – Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets are recorded at cost and consist of assets acquired in 2018 as a result of a business acquisition in 2018. Amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the estimate useful life of the asset. Intangible assets were comprised of the following at September 30, 2020:

 

Intangible Assets Estimated Life Gross Cost Accumulated Amortization Net Book Value
Intellectual property/technology 5 yrs. $433,400  $(180,583) $252,817 
Customer base 5 yrs.  72,000   (30,000)  42,000 
Tradenames and trademarks 5 yrs.  58,200   (24,250)  33,950 
Non-compete agreement 4 yrs.  160,900   (83,802)  77,098 
Carrying value as of September 30, 2020   $724,500  $(318,635) $405,865 

 

The weighted average remaining amortization period in years is 2.71 years. Amortization expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $38,236 and $114,710, respectively, and $38,236 and $118,309, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 2019, which is included in general and administrative expenses on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations.

 

Future amortization is as follows for fiscal years ending:

 

  2020 (months remaining) 2021 2022 2023
Intellectual property/technology $21,670  $86,680  $86,680  $57,786

Note 6 – Debt

 

Promissory Notes

 

On May 6, 2020, the Company received a loan in the amount of $107,439 from the Small Business Administration (SBA) as part of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act’s Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP). The loan is unsecured, nonrecourse, accrues interest at one percent per annum, with a due date of May 6, 2022. Under the terms of the loan, a portion or all of the loan is forgivable to the extent that the loan proceeds are used to fund qualifying payroll, rent and utilities during a designated twenty-four-week period through October 21, 2020.

 

The unforgiven portion of the PPP loan is payable over two years and can be extended to five years if agreed upon by both parties and bears interest at a rate of 1%, with a deferral of payments for the first six months. The Company intends to use the proceeds for purposes consistent with the PPP. While the Company currently believes that its use of the loan proceeds will meet the conditions for forgiveness of the loan, there can be no assurance that the Company will not take actions that could cause the Company to be ineligible for forgiveness of the loan, in whole or in part.

 

As part of the liabilities assumed from the Merger, the Company recorded a promissory note for a principal amount of $125,556 and accrued interest of $4,171 payable over twelve months and maturing on March 27, 2019. The total amount outstanding as March 31, 2019 was $9,028, resulting in principal payments of $31,970 made in the first three months of 2019. The Company recorded interest of $462 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The note was paid in full in April 2019.

 

Note 7 – Stockholders’ Equity

 

Common Stock

 

Securities Purchase Agreement Dated May 11, 2020

 

On May 11, 2020, the Company and an institutional investor and existing Company shareholder (the “Investor”) entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 2,400,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, and pre-funded warrants (the “Pre-Funded Warrants”) to purchase up to 3,260,377 shares of common stock, for gross proceeds of approximately $6 million (which includes subsequent payment of the exercise price of the Pre-Funded Warrants in the amount of $3,267). The purchase price for each share of common stock was $1.06 and the purchase price for each Pre-Funded Warrant was $1.05999. The exercise price for each Warrant was $0.001. Net proceeds from the sale were used to repurchase 262 shares of the Company’s Series E Preferred Stock, convertible into 1,048,000 shares of common stock currently held by the Investor at a repurchase price of $1.06 per share of common stock (see below). The Company expects to use the balance for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Company increased net loss available to common stockholders’ in computing earnings per share for the excess of the consideration paid for the Series E Preferred Stock over its carrying value totaling $848,880 as presented on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company had agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 60-day period following the closing, the Company did not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of common stock or common stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions. The exercise price of the Warrants and the shares of the common stock issuable upon the exercise thereof were subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Warrants, and were exercisable on a “cashless” basis in certain circumstances.

Securities Purchase Agreement Dated June 24, 2020

 

On June 24, 2020, the Company and the Investor entered into a Purchase Agreement pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 4,407,400 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, pre-funded warrants to purchase up to 1,956,236 shares of common stock, and warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase up to 2,455,476 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.35 per share, for gross proceeds of $7 million (which includes subsequent payment of the exercise price of the Pre-Funded Warrants in the amount of $1,956) and net proceeds of $6,950,000 after issuance costs. Upon exercise of the Warrants in full by the Investor, the Company will receive additional gross proceeds of $3,314,892. The shares of common stock underlying the Pre-Funded Warrants and the Warrants are referred to as “June Warrant Shares.”

 

The purchase price for each share of common Stock is $1.10 and the purchase price for each Pre-Funded Warrant is $1.099. The exercise price for each Pre-Funded Warrant is $0.001. Net proceeds from the sale will be used for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. The Shares, Pre-funded Warrants, Warrants and June Warrant Shares are being offered by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-239157), which was declared effective on June 19, 2020.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 75-day period following the closing, the Company will not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of common stock or common stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions, including if the consolidated closing price on the trading market on which the Company’s common stock is traded at the time is greater than $1.90 (adjusted for any subsequent stock splits or similar capital adjustments) for five consecutive trading days, the Company may issue such securities at not less than $1.90 per common stock Equivalent. The Investor has a right from the date of the Purchase Agreement until December 31, 2020 to participate in a subsequent financing by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of common stock or common stock Equivalents for cash consideration, indebtedness or a combination of units thereof (a “Subsequent Financing”), in an amount equal to 50% of the Subsequent Financing on the same terms, conditions and price provided for in the Subsequent Financing.

 

The exercise price of the Prefunded Warrants and the Warrants and the number of June Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof will be subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Prefunded Warrants and the Warrants. The Warrants will be exercisable on a “cashless” basis only in the event there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the sale of the shares underlying the Warrants. The Pre-Funded Warrants allow for cashless exercise at any time. The Pre-Funded Warrants and the Warrants each contain a beneficial ownership limitation, such that none of such Pre-Funded Warrants nor the Warrants may be exercised, if, at the time of such exercise, the holder would become the beneficial owner of more than 9.99% of our outstanding shares of common stock following the exercise of such Pre-Funded Warrant or Warrant. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 the Company received $2,632,500 in additional gross proceeds associated with exercise of 1,950,000 of the June Warrant Shares into common stock.

Note 7 – Stockholders’ Equity – Continued

 

Securities Purchase Agreement Dated August 4, 2020

 

On August 4, 2020, the Company and an institutional investor and existing Company stockholder (the “Investor”) entered into a Purchase Agreement pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 3,355,705 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase up to 2,516,778 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.30 per share (the “Warrants”), for proceeds of $9,900,000 net of issuance costs of $100,000. Upon exercise of the Warrants in full by the Investor, the Company will receive additional gross proceeds of approximately $8,305,367. The shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrants are referred to as “August Warrant Shares.”

 

The purchase price for each share of Common Stock is $2.98. Net proceeds from the sale will be used for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. The Shares, the Warrants and the August Warrant Shares are being offered by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-239157), which was declared effective on June 19, 2020.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 75-day period following the closing, the Company will not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions, including if the consolidated closing price on the trading market on which the Company’s Common Stock is traded at the time is greater than $5.00 (adjusted for any subsequent stock splits or similar capital adjustments) for ten consecutive trading days, the Company may issue such securities at not less than $5.00 per Common Stock Equivalent. In addition, the Company’s executive officers and directors agreed that they shall not sell (or hedge in any manner) any of their shares of the Common Stock for a period ending September 7, 2020. The Investor has a right from the date of the Purchase Agreement until December 31, 2020, to participate in a subsequent financing by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents for cash consideration, indebtedness or a combination of units thereof (a “Subsequent Financing”), in an amount equal to 50% of the Subsequent Financing on the same terms, conditions and price provided for in the Subsequent Financing.

 

The exercise price of the Warrants and the number of August Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof will be subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Warrants. The Warrants will be exercisable on a “cashless” basis only in the event there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the sale of the shares underlying the Warrants. The Warrants contain a beneficial ownership limitation, such that none of such Warrants may be exercised, if, at the time of such exercise, the holder would become the beneficial owner of more than 9.99% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock following the exercise of such Warrant.

Note 7 – Stockholders’ Equity – Continued

 

On May 18, 2020, the company issued in connection with the commencement of the Chief Executive officer, 100,000 shares of restricted stock units under the Company’s 2017 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “Equity Plan”), which will fully vest after one year of continued employment. The Company determined the fair-market value of the restricted stock units to be $134,000. In connection with the issuance of these restricted stock units, the Company recognized $33,688 and $49,794 in stock compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations. The remaining unrecognized stock compensation expense of $84,206 will be recognized through May 2021.

 

On June 30, 2020, the Company issued in connection with a consulting agreement, dated May 3, 2019, 250,000 shares of its common stock to the consulting company as a part of their compensation for services. The Company recognized a total of $297,500 of expense at a fair value of $1.19 per share related to these issuances. within general and administrative costs on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations. In addition, the Consultant also held options to purchase 207,055 shares of the Company’s common stock that were cashless exercised at a price of $0.06 per share on July 20, 2020 into 201,791 shares of common stock.

 

Series C Preferred Stock

 

As a result of the Merger, the Company’s Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) included 2,879 of remaining shares after the conversion and retirement of all the Company’s promissory notes due. These shares were convertible into 1,471,425 shares of the Company’s common stock. Furthermore, an additional 4,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock were issued and were convertible into 3,020,797 shares of the Company’s common stock, as they were issued to the current holder of Series C Preferred Stock in connection with a $4 million financing of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Financing”).

 

On May 11, 2018, the Company issued an additional 250 shares of our Series C Preferred Stock, convertible into 163,265 shares of common stock and received a cash payment of $250,000 for the issuance of the Series C Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Stock included a beneficial ownership limitation preventing conversion of shares of Series C Preferred Stock into more than 9.99% of the number of shares of our common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock.

 

Each share of Series C Preferred Stock was convertible into a number of shares of common stock equal to the quotient determined by dividing (x) the stated value of $1,000 per share, by (y) an original conversion price of $1.53. Until the volume weighted average price of common stock on NYSE exceeds $107.50 with average trading volume of 200,000 shares per day for ten consecutive trading days, the conversion price of Series C Preferred Stock was subject to full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection. Under that provision, if, while that full-ratchet, anti-dilution price protection is in effect, the Company issues shares of common stock at a price per share (the “Dilutive Price”) that is less than the conversion price, then the conversion price of the Series C Preferred Stock is automatically reduced to be equal to the Dilutive Price. The effect of that reduction is that, upon the issuance of shares of common stock at a Dilutive Price, the Series C Preferred Stock would be convertible into a greater number of shares of common stock.

 

The Series C preferred stock anti-dilution protection was initially triggered on December 27, 2018 as a result of the Company issuing the Series D Preferred Stock, (the “Series D Preferred Stock”) as described below. The Series D Preferred Stock had a $0.54 conversion price thereby qualifying as a subsequent equity offering at a price less than $1.53.

On April 7, 2020, upon the issuance of the Series E Preferred Stock, (the “Series E Preferred Stock”) offering (see below), a subsequent anti-dilution provision was triggered for the Series C Preferred Stock whereby the conversion price was further adjusted from $0.54 per share to $0.25 per share (a “Down Round), which resulted in approximately 13,248,000 shares of common stock being issuable upon conversion of the remaining Series C Preferred Stock. As a result of this Down Round being triggered, the Company recorded a deemed dividend in the amount of $3,841,920 representing the intrinsic spread between the previous conversion price of $.54 and the adjusted conversion price of $.25 multiplied by approximately 13,248,000 common stock shares issuable upon conversion. The deemed dividend was recorded as a reduction of retained earnings and increase in additional paid-in-capital and increased the net loss to common stockholders by the same amount in computing earnings per share.

 

During the month of January 2020, Alpha Capital Anstalt (“Alpha”) converted 189 shares of Series C Preferred Stock into 350,000 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.54. During the month of April 2020, Alpha converted 3,312 shares of Series C Preferred Stock into 13,247,984 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.25. As of September 30, 2020, no Series C Preferred Stock remain issued and outstanding.

 

Series D Preferred Stock

 

On December 27, 2018, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with Alpha. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) designated a new series of preferred stock by filing a certificate of designation, the Series D Preferred Stock, which is non-convertible and provides for an 8% annual dividend and is subject to optional redemption by the Company. The Company issued 2,000 shares of Preferred Stock and a warrant to purchase 3,703,703 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Warrant,” and the shares of common stock underling the warrants, the “Series D Warrant Shares”) for $2,000,000 in gross proceeds. The Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, granting registration rights to Alpha with respect to the Series D Warrant Shares.

 

The Agreement provides that upon a subsequent financing or financings with net proceeds of at least $500,000, the Company must exercise its optional redemption of the Preferred Stock (as more fully described below in Item 5.03) and apply any and all net proceeds from such financing(s) to the redemption in full of the Preferred Stock.

 

The Preferred Stock is non-convertible, provides for an 8% annual dividend payable semi-annually and has liquidation rights senior to the common stock, but pari passu with the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock. During the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded $69,778 and $121,333 of accrued dividends, respectively. As of September 30, 2020, and December 31, 2019, accumulated accrued dividends totaled $0 and $163,555, respectively, as presented on the condensed interim consolidated balance sheets.

 

The Preferred Stock has no voting rights, except that the Company shall not undertake certain corporate actions as set forth in the Certificate of Designation that would materially impact the holders of Preferred Stock without their consent.

 

 The Preferred Stock is subject to optional redemption by the Company at 115% of the stated value of the Preferred Stock outstanding at the time of such redemption, plus any accrued but unpaid dividends and all liquidated damages or other amounts due. Any such optional redemption may only be exercised after giving notice and upon satisfaction of certain equity conditions set forth in the Certificate of Designation, including (i) all dividends, liquidated damages and other amounts have been paid; (ii) there is an effective registration statement covering the Series D Warrant Shares, or the Series D Warrant Shares can be exercised through a cashless exercise without restriction under Rule 144, (iii) the Series D Warrant Shares are listed on an exchange, (iv) the holder is not in possession of material, non-public information, (v) there is a sufficient number of authorized shares for issuance of all Series D Warrant Shares, and (vi) for each trading day in a period of 20 consecutive trading days prior to the redemption date, the daily trading volume for the common stock on the principal trading market exceeds $200,000 per trading day.

Note 7 – Stockholders’ Equity – Continued

 

On April 7, 2020, upon the issuance of the Series E Preferred Stock, (the “Series E Preferred Stock”) offering (see below), a subsequent anti-dilution provision was triggered for the Series D Warrants whereby the exercise price of the Warrant Shares was adjusted from $0.54 to $0.25 per share (a “Warrant Down Round). Upon the Warrant Down Round being triggered, the Company recognized $208,918 of a deemed dividend for the difference between the fair value of the original warrants right before modification and the fair value of the modified warrants. The fair value of the warrants was determined using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on the following assumptions: expected life of 3.5 years, expected dividend rate of 0%, volatility of 90.0%, and an interest rate of 0.29%. The deemed dividend to the preferred stockholders was a recorded as additional paid in capital and a reduction of retained earnings and as an increase to net loss attributable to common stockholders in computing earnings per share on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations.

 

On June 5, 2020, the Company and Alpha entered into a letter agreement whereby they agreed to amend the Original Series D Preferred Stock and terminate the Purchase Agreement. Alpha is a current holder of less than 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock and has no material relationship with the Company.

 

On June 5, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company approved an amendment to the Original Series D Preferred Stock Certificate of Designation for Nevada Profit Corporations with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada (the “Original Series D Preferred Stock Certificate of Designation”). The amendment among other things, (i) provided for the ability of the Holder to convert the Original Series D, including all accrued, but unpaid dividends on the Original Series D, into shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share of the Company, (ii) set a conversion price at $0.54 per share (subject to customary adjustments), and (iii) increased the stated value of the Original Series D from $1,000 to $1,116.67. The Amended and Restated Certificate of Designation of the Series D Preferred Stock was filed with the Secretary of the State of Nevada effective as of June 8, 2020.

 

The holder of the Original Series D approved the amendment to the Original Series D. There is no class or series of stock which is senior to the Original Series D as to the payment of distributions upon dissolution of the Company, and therefore the approval of any other class or series of stock of the Company to the amendments to the Original Series D Preferred Stock Certificate of Designation is not required pursuant to Nevada law.

 

On the date of the above amendment to the Original Series D Preferred Stock the fair value of the Company’s common stock price was $1.45 which is higher than the effective conversion price of $0.54 that was agreed to on June 5th, 2020. Due to the modification of the Series D Preferred Stock, the Company recorded a deemed dividend of $3,763,591 representing the intrinsic value of $0.91 multiplied by the number of common stock shares to be issued upon conversion. The deemed dividend to the preferred stockholders was a recorded as additional paid in capital and a reduction of retained earnings and has an increase to net loss attributable to common stockholders in computing earnings per share

 

During the month of June 2020, the Series D Preferred Stockholder converted 1,890 shares of Series D Preferred Stock and all outstanding accrued dividends totaling $233,333 into 3,500,000 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.54.

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Series D Preferred Stockholders converted the remaining 110 shares of the Series D Preferred Stock into 635,815 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.54 which includes an additional 421,308 of common stock shares to correct conversions that occurred in June 2020 computed using the stated value of $1,000 rather than $1,116.67.

 

Series E Preferred Stock

 

On April 7, 2020 the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with Alpha, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized 1,050 shares of a newly designated series of preferred stock, the Series E Convertible Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock was convertible at $0.25 per share into an aggregate of 4,200,000 shares of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share. The purchase price for the Preferred Stock was $1,050,000 of which the Company received net proceeds of $1,010,000. The Preferred Stock has liquidation rights senior to the common stock, but pari passu with the Series C Preferred Stock and the Series D Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock has no voting rights. The conversion price adjusts for stock splits and combinations and is subject to anti-dilution protection for subsequent equity issuances until such time as no shares of Series E Preferred Stock are outstanding. The Certificate of Designation of the Series E Convertible Preferred Stock was filed with the State of Nevada on April 2, 2020.The Company also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, granting registration rights to Alpha with respect to the Conversion Shares and common stock underlying warrants currently owned by Alpha.

 

On the date that the Series E Preferred Stock was consummated the fair value of the Company’s common stock price was $0.37 which is higher than the effective conversion price of $0.25 that was agreed to on April 7th, 2020. As a result, the Company recognized a beneficial conversion feature (“BCF”) of $378,240 on 788 of Preferred Shares representing the intrinsic value of $.12 multiplied by the number of common stock shares to be issued upon conversion. The remaining amount of 262 shares was repurchased as described below. The discount to the Series E Preferred Stock resulting from the BCF has been presented as an increase to net loss attributable to common stockholders in computing earnings per share on the condensed interim consolidated statements of operations.

  

On May 11, 2020, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement for the sale of common stock as described above with Alpha whereby we agreed to repurchase 262 shares of Series E Preferred Stock with the proceeds from the new issuance. The repurchase of the Preferred Series E Stock was convertible into 1,048,000 shares of common stock at a repurchase price of $1.06 per share. The Company increased its net loss available to common stockholders’ in computing earnings per share for the excess of the consideration paid for the Series E Preferred Stock over its carrying value totaling $848,880.

 

Filing of Registration Statement

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement executed on April 7, 2020, the Company filed an initial registration statement registering the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares on April 27, 2020. The Company’s registration statement was declared effective May 6, 2020.

As compensation for the services under the terms of the agreement, Consultant shall receive (i) $25,000 per month during the term of the agreement, (ii) 500,000 shares of restricted common stock upon execution of the agreement, and (iii) up to 2,500,000 shares of restricted common stock upon the achievement of predetermined milestones.

 

The Consultant was also previously engaged by the Company between March 2015 and August 2016 to provide consulting services. In addition, the Consultant held options to purchase 207,055 shares of the Company’s common stock that were cashless exercised at a price of $0.06 per share on July 20, 2020 into 201,791 shares of common stock.

 

On October 31, 2019, the consulting agreement with the Consultant was terminated as a result of the Company no longer needing these services to be provided by an outside consultant. During the term of the agreement, the Company paid to the Consultant (i) $25,000 per month for six months and issued (ii) 500,000 restricted shares of common stock at the execution of the agreement. The agreement also provided for the issuance of up to an additional 2,500,000 shares of restricted common stock upon the achievement of milestones that were to be determined by the Company and the Consultant during the term of the agreement. There are no early termination penalties incurred as a result of the termination of the consulting agreement. The Consultant may still be entitled to receive the shares after termination of the Agreement, if the achievement of milestones that commenced during the term of the Agreement are completed.

Company Overview

 

AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (“AgEagle” or “the Company”) designs, produces and supports technologically-advanced small, unmanned aerial vehicles (“UAVs” or “drones”). In addition, providing new utility to UAVs, we pioneer and innovate advanced aerial imaging data collection and analytics technologies capable of addressing the impending food and environmental sustainability crises that threaten our planet. Historically, our daily efforts have focused on delivering the tools and strategies necessary to define and implement commercial drone construction and delivery, along with sustainability and precision farming solutions that solve important problems confronting the global agricultural industry. We have spent ten years serving customers, covering more than two million acres in 50 countries monitoring 53 different crops. AgEagle remains intent on earning distinction as a trusted partner to clients seeking to adopt and support productive agricultural approaches to better farming practices which limit the impact on our natural resources, reduce reliance on inputs and materially increase crop yields and profits.

 

In addition to UAV sales, in late 2018, we introduced a new drone-leasing program, alleviating farmers and agribusinesses from significant upfront costs associated with purchasing a drone, while also relieving them from ongoing drone maintenance and support requirements. Additionally, the new program provides the option of engaging a trained AgEagle pilot to operate the drone and manage the entire image collection process, creating a truly turnkey aerial imagery capture solution for its customers.

 

In the first half of 2019, we introduced HempOverview, a scalable, responsive and cost-effective Software-as-a-Solution (“SaaS”) web- and map-based technology platform to support the operations of domestic industrial hemp programs for state and tribal nation departments of agriculture, growers and processors – a solution that provides users with what we believe is the gold standard for regulatory oversight, operational assistance and reporting capabilities for the fast emerging industrial hemp industry.

 

33 

 

In the third quarter of 2019, AgEagle announced that it had begun to actively pursue expansion opportunities within the emerging Drone Logistics and Transportation market and revealed that it had received its first purchase orders from a major ecommerce company to manufacture and assemble UAVs designed to meet the critical specifications for drones that are meant to carry packaged goods in urban and suburban areas.

 

Central to our long-term growth strategy, we will continue to identify opportunities to leverage our proprietary technological platform and industry expertise to penetrate new, high growth market sectors that may benefit from our advanced aerial imagery-based data collection and analytics solutions.

 

Research and development activities are integral to our business and we follow a disciplined approach to investing our resources to create new technologies and solutions.

 

 Our business is seasonal in nature and, as a result, our revenue and expenses and associated revenue trends fluctuate from quarter to quarter.

 

Commercial Drone Package Delivery

 

Over the past year, there has been a surge of prominent companies, including Alphabet (Google), FedEx, Intel, Qualcomm, Amazon, Target, Walmart, Alibaba, UPS, 7-Eleven, Uber and many others, actively developing commercial drone delivery service initiatives as part of their long-term strategic plans. These companies intend to leverage the latest in UAV technologies to deliver food, consumer products, medicines and other types of lightweight freight direct to consumers and businesses in the fastest, most cost efficient and environmentally responsible manner possible – a practical alternative to costly auto transport.

 

AgEagle’s proven expertise in manufacturing rugged, reliable and professional grade UAVs makes us a logical partner for designing, manufacturing and testing drone platforms in the fast growing package delivery market – a market forecasted by Research and Markets will climb to $11.2 billion by 2022 and subsequently rise to $29.06 billion by 2027. The anticipated growth of the industry is expected to be largely fueled by the high usage of drones in the ecommerce industry for delivery of products in rural areas, where automotive transport vehicles cannot readily reach or where deliveries take longer time to arrive.

 

In September 2019, we announced that we were actively pursuing expansion opportunities within the Drone Logistics and Transportation market, and reported that we had received our first purchase order from a major unnamed ecommerce company to manufacture and assemble UAVs designed to meet the critical specifications for drones that are meant to carry goods in urban and suburban areas. AgEagle is currently working in close collaboration with this new customer on its tethered test flight operations and ongoing development. In association with the initial purchase order, AgEagle recorded its first revenues in the second half of 2019 and had recognized additional revenues from the project in the first quarter of 2020.

 

In the second quarter of 2020, we announced that we had received follow-on purchase orders from the ecommerce company client relating to the continued manufacture and assembly of drones used for the testing and refining of client’s commercial drone small delivery vehicles, systems and operations currently in development. Due to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting delivery delays of components ordered from certain suppliers for this project, revenues associated with these purchase orders will be reported in the third quarter, ending September 30, 2020. It is our belief that we will continue to perpetuate and enhance our relationship with this customer on a moving-forward basis.

Our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Business

 

Our first commercially available product was the AgEagle Classic, which was followed shortly thereafter by the RAPID System. As we improved and matured our product, we launched the RX-60 and subsequently our current UAV product, the RX-48. The success AgEagle has achieved with its legacy products, which we believe has carried over into the continued improvement of the RX-60 and RX-48, stems from AgEagle’s ability to invent and deliver advanced solutions utilizing its proprietary technologies and trade secrets that help farmers, agronomists and other precision agricultural professionals operate more effectively and efficiently. Our core technological capabilities, developed over five years of research and innovation, include a lightweight laminated shell that allows the UAV platform to perform under challenging flying conditions, a camera with a Near Infrared (NIR) filter, a rugged foot launcher (RX-60), and high-end software that automates drone flights and provides geo-referenced data. All of AgEagle’s proprietary UAVs are electrically powered, weigh approximately six pounds fully loaded, are capable of flying over approximately 400 acres (roughly 60 minutes of airtime) per flight from their launch location, and are configured to carry a camera with an NIR filter that uses near infrared images to capture crop data. Our leadership believes that these characteristics make its UAVs well suited for providing a complete aerial view of a farmer’s field to help precisely identify crop health and field conditions faster than any other method available.

 

Our UAVs were initially specifically designed to help farmers increase profits by pinpointing areas where nutrients or chemicals need to be applied, as opposed to traditional widespread land application processes, thus decreasing input costs, reducing the amount of chemicals applied and potentially increasing yields. AgEagle’s products were designed for busy agriculture professionals who do not have the time to process images on their computers, which some of its competitors require. The software can automatically take pictures from the camera, stitch the photos together through the cloud, and deliver a geo-referenced, high quality aerial map to the user’s desktop or tablet device using specialty precision agriculture software such as SST Software, SMS Software or most other agricultural software solutions. The result is a prescription or zone map that can then be used in a field computer that is typically found in a sprayer or applicator designed to drive through fields to precisely apply the amount of nutrients or chemicals required to continue or restore the production of healthy crops.

 

In addition to UAV sales, in late 2018, AgEagle introduced a new drone-leasing program, alleviating farmers and agribusinesses from significant upfront costs associated with purchasing a drone, while also relieving them from ongoing drone maintenance and support requirements. Additionally, the new program provides the option of engaging a trained AgEagle pilot to operate the drone and manage the entire image collection process, creating a truly turnkey aerial imagery capture solution for our customers.

 

HempOverview Platform

 

With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in December 2018, industrial hemp is now recognized as an agricultural commodity, such as corn, wheat or soybeans.

 

More specifically, the 2018 Farm Bill authorizes state departments of agriculture, including agencies representing the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and any other territory or possession of the United States, and Indian tribal governments, to submit plans to the USDA applying for primary regulatory authority over the production of hemp in their respective state or tribal territory.

 

35 

 

As one of the agriculture industry’s leading pioneers of advanced aerial-image-based data collection and analytics solutions, AgEagle is intent on leveraging our expertise to champion the use of proven, advanced web- and map-based technologies as a means to streamline and ultimately standardize hemp cultivation in the United States. Growers need to be registered/permitted; crops need to be monitored and inspected; and enforcement operations must be established to ensure compliance with state and federal mandates. Through the introduction of HempOverview, AgEagle represents the first agriculture technology company to its knowledge to bring to market an advanced agtech

 

solution that is designed to meet the unique complexities and vigorous oversight, compliance and enforcement demands of the emerging American hemp industry and the unique needs and demands of its key stakeholders.

 

HempOverview is comprised of four modules:

 

 1)Registration: secure, scalable software to handle all farmer and processer application and licensing matters.
 2)Best Management Practices: iterative, intelligent data collection and analysis utilizing satellite imagery and advanced, proprietary algorithms to help farmers reduce input costs, avoid missteps, detect pest impacts and monitor water usage.
 3)Oversight and Enforcement: integration of data management and satellite imagery to provide continuous monitoring of all hemp fields in the state, predict and respond to issues and assist in proper crop testing.
 4)Reporting: generation of actionable reports for USDA requirements, legislative oversight and support of research institutions.

 

In November, 2019, AgEagle announced that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (“FDACS”) had chosen the HempOverview solution to manage its online application submission and registration process for hemp growers and their farms and hemp fields in the State of Florida for the years 2020, 2021 and 2022. In addition, the Company has entered discussions with several other states across the nation, as well as with certain growers and processors, and expects to announce additional new HempOverview clients in 2020.

 

HempOverview focuses on simultaneously collecting data, analyzing field-related problems and providing readily accessible analysis and reporting for achieving and sustaining end-to-end visibility and best management practices for the growing industrial and CBD hemp supply chain.

 

FarmLens Platform

 

Our FarmLens platform has benefitted us and our shareholders by developing important vertically integrated products and services with our drone-enabled software technologies. FarmLens is a subscription cloud analytics service that processes data, primarily collected with a drone, such as those produced by AgEagle, and makes such data actionable by farmers and agronomists. FarmLens is currently sold by AgEagle as a subscription service and offered either standalone or in a bundle with drone platforms manufactured by leading drone providers like AgEagle, DJI and senseFly. The FarmLens platform extends AgEagle’s reach as a business through key partnerships.

 

Growth Strategy

 

Moving forward, the Company intends to concentrate its growth strategies on three focused pursuits:

 

 1)Contract Manufacturing: establishing AgEagle as the dominant commercial drone design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly and testing company in the United States with emphasis on quality;
 2)Drone Solutions: establishing AgEagle as the world’s trusted source for turn-key drone delivery services and solutions; and
 3)Ag Solutions: leveraging our reputation as one of the leading technology solutions providers to the Agriculture industry with best-in-class drones and data analytics for hemp and other commercial crops.

 

36 

 

Key components of our growth strategy include the following:

 

 Achieving greater market penetration of the U.S. industrial hemp industry by working to establish HempOverview and other related products and services as the gold industry standard for hemp cultivation oversight, compliance, enforcement and commerce. AgEagle is – and intends to remain – at the leading edge of leveraging best-in-class technology to provide turnkey solutions for state and tribal regulatory departments of agriculture, industrial hemp and hemp-derived CBD growers and processors. At this time, AgEagle believes that it is the only company in the nation with extensive experience in agriculture that is effectively addressing the emerging needs and challenges of the domestic hemp cultivation industry through the application of advanced technology – a key competitive differential that the Company hopes to capitalize on in the coming year.
   
 Pursue the expansion of the AgEagle platform of products and solutions into other complementary industries besides agriculture, including the Drone Logistics and Transportation market. We have begun actively exploring opportunities outside of traditional agriculture as we continue to expand and grow the AgEagle platform. We are confident in the UAV products and solutions we offer today and believe that these products and solutions could provide other industries the same kind of optimization we are currently providing the agriculture industry. In addition to drone package deliveries, we believe that our solutions and services may also be well suited for the aerial imaging and data collection and analytics needs involved in land surveying and scanning, insurance, inspections and search and rescue operations, among other industrial applications. Prior to the end of September 2020, we manufactured all of our proprietary and contracted products at our secure manufacturing facility in Neodesha, Kansas, which allows us to avoid many of the potential difficulties that may arise if our manufacturing facilities were otherwise located outside the U.S., which is of particular importance to those AgEagle customers who rely on confidentiality and protection of trade secrets in the development of their drone package delivery initiatives. In later September 2020, we began relocating our Neodesha-based manufacturing operations to a facility in Wichita, Kansas, providing us with ample room for the planned scaling of our contract manufacturing, assembly, design, engineering and testing business.
   
 Deliver new and innovative solutions for the agriculture and other emerging commercial drone markets. Our research and development efforts are the foundation of our Company, and we intend to continue investing in our own innovations, pioneering new and enhanced products and solutions that enable us to satisfy our customers – both in response to and in anticipation of their needs. We believe that by investing in research and development, we can be a leader in delivering innovative products that address market needs within our current target markets, enabling us to create new opportunities for growth.

 

37 

 

 Pursue the expansion of the AgEagle platform of products and solutions into other industries besides agriculture and drone package delivery. The Company may investigate and pursue opportunities outside of agriculture and drone package delivery as we continue to expand and grow the AgEagle platform. We are confident in the UAV products, services and solutions we offer today and believe that these products, services and solutions could provide other industries the same kind of optimization we are currently providing the agriculture and emerging drone package industry. These industries have yet to be identified by the AgEagle team but may include verticals such as land surveying and scanning, insurance, inspections and search and rescue, among others.

 

Impact of COVID-19 On Our Business Operations

 

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has evolved into a global pandemic. The coronavirus has spread to many regions of the world, including the United States. The extent to which COVID-19 impacts our business and operating results will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted, including new information that may emerge concerning COVID-19 and the actions to contain the coronavirus or treat its impact, among others.

 

Should the coronavirus continue to spread, our business operations could be delayed or interrupted. For instance, we currently utilize third parties to, among other things, manufacture components and parts for the proprietary and contracted drones we produce, and to perform quality testing. We also manufacture and assemble products and perform various services at our manufacturing facility. If either we or any third-parties in the supply chain for materials used in our manufacturing and assembly processes are adversely impacted by restrictions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, our supply chain may be disrupted, limiting our ability to manufacture and assemble products.

 

The spread of the coronavirus, which has caused a broad impact globally, including restrictions on travel and quarantine policies put into place by businesses and governments, may have a material economic effect on our business. While the potential economic impact brought on by and the duration of the pandemic may be difficult to assess or predict, it has already caused, and is likely to result in further, significant disruptions of global financial markets, which may reduce our future ability to access capital either at all or on favorable terms. In addition, a recession, depression or other sustained adverse market event resulting from the spread of the coronavirus could materially and adversely affect our business and the value of our common stock.

 

The ultimate impact of the current pandemic, or any other health epidemic, is highly uncertain and subject to change. We do not yet know the full extent of potential delays or impacts on our business or the global economy as a whole. However, these effects could have a material impact on our operations in the future. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, in addition to complying with ’shelter at home’ mandates in those states affecting our employees, most of whom worked virtually from their homes, our supply chain was adversely impacted by the pandemic, causing material delays in the delivery of critical supply orders associated with timely fulfilling our obligations to our large ecommerce client. As a consequence, revenues originally expected to be reported in the second quarter 2020 will be reported in our third quarter 2020 results.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Our most critical estimates include those related to revenue recognition, inventories and reserves for excess and obsolescence, accounting for stock-based awards, and income taxes. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and assumptions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Our actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

See Note 2 in the accompanying unaudited condense interim consolidated financial statements for a listing of our critical accounting policies.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded revenues of $750,325 compared to revenues of $41,616 for the same period in 2019, a 1,703% increase. The increase for this quarter in comparison to the prior quarter was largely due to new revenues derived from follow-on purchase orders to manufacture and assemble drone related products that had been deferred due to vendor delays impacted by COVID-19 shut-downs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded revenues of $1,157,930 compared to revenues of $107,785 for the same period in 2019, a 974% increase. The increase was largely due to new revenues derived from follow-on purchase orders to manufacture and assemble drone delivery products designed to meet specific criteria for package delivery in urban and suburban area. In addition, revenue growth was also positively impacted by continued focus on expansion of our platforms, providing for aerial imaging and analytics solutions which serve new and emerging markets including registration, oversight and compliance of hemp fields by state departments of agriculture.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, cost of sales totaled $430,683 and $32,728, respectively, an increase of $397,955 or 1,216%. Costs of sales totaled $620,196 and $85,875, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, reflecting an increase in our cost of goods sold of 622% commensurate with the increase in sales.

 

We also had gross profit of $319,642, or 43%, during the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $8,888, or 21%, for the comparable period in 2019, resulting in an increase in our profit margin in the current period. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we had a gross profit of $537,734 or 46% and $21,910 or 20%, respectively, an increase in our profit margins of 2,354%. The primary factors contributing to the increase in our cost of sales and gross profit margin was due to the continued shift in mix of products and services we now offer customers in the new markets we serve that have resulted in higher margin for our sales.

We recorded total operating expenses of $897,379 during the three months ended September 30, 2020, a 57% increase as compared to operating expenses of $571,926 in the same period of 2019. Our operating expenses are comprised of general and administrative costs, professional fees and selling expenses. General and administrative expenses totaled $626,605 in the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $396,432 in 2019, an increase of 58%. The increase was due primarily to stock compensation expenses, investor relations costs, payments to directors as compensation fees, and additional payroll and bonus payments made to employees. Professional fees also increased 67% as we had $254,532 of expenses for the current period versus $152,192 in the comparable prior period. The increase was mainly due to additional consulting service fees related to fractional CTO services, an operational consultant and business development consultants required to expand our growth opportunities along with incremental legal expenses as a result of our capital raising activities. Lastly, included in operating expenses was selling costs that decreased 30% to $16,242 versus $23,302 in the prior comparable period due to less travel and conference expenses for the purposes of new business development as a result of COVID-19.

 

We recorded total operating expenses of $2,774,113 and $1,889,214, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, a 47% increase. Our operating expenses are comprised of general and administrative costs, professional fees and selling expenses. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we recorded $1,782,926 and $1,305,221 in general and administrative expenses, respectively, resulting in a 37% increase. The increase is mainly due to recruiting fees associated with search for new CEO, costs for public relations services, payments to directors as compensation fees, additional payroll and bonus payments made to employees, stock compensation expenses, and investor relations costs. Professional fees also increased 80% as we had $958,436 of expenses for the current period versus $531,885 in the comparable prior period. The increase was mainly due to additional consulting service fees related to fractional CTO services, an operational consultant and business development consultants required to expand our growth opportunities along with incremental legal expenses as a result of our capital raising activities. Lastly, included in operating expenses was selling costs that decreased 37% to $32,751 versus $52,108 in the prior year’s comparable period due to less travel and conference expenses for the purposes of new business development as a result of COVID-19.

 

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 we recorded a loss on disposal of fixed assets due to our moving to Wichita of $594. There were no other expenses recorded for the same period during 2019.

 

Interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $275 related to the Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) loan, compared to $0 during the three months ended September 30, 2019 and $501for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

Our net loss was $578,606 and $563,038 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively and $2,237,248 and $1,867,805, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Overall, the increase in net loss is due to an increase in our operating costs as a result of the shifts in our sales and our business development growth strategies. We are in the process of continuing to address these shifts by developing new platforms, products and services that support prevailing growth opportunities in the domestic industrial hemp market, sustainable agriculture market and the growing drone-enabled package delivery business.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, our net loss available to common stockholders decrease to $578,606 from $603,927, a decrease of 4%. Our net loss available to common stockholders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was $11,348,575 and $1,989,138, respectively. The increase is due to non-cash charges stemming from required deemed dividend accounting for modifications to certain preferred stock, redemption of preferred stock and the trigger of Down Round provisions on certain preferred stock and warrants.

Cash Flows

 

September 30, 2020 Compared to December 31, 2019

 

Cash on hand was $24,693,417 at September 30, 2020 compared to the $717,997 at December 31, 2019, an increase of $23,975,420. Cash used in operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $(1,442,919) compared to $(1,121,260) of cash used in operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in cash used in operating activities was driven largely by payments received from revenue that was initially recorded as a contract liability offset by additional accounts payables related to purchases of inventories associated with this project.

 

There was $(70,086) cash used in our investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as compared to $(57,715) used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in cash used in our investing activities resulted from purchases of property and equipment and building improvements for the new leased warehouse.

 

Cash provided in financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $25,488,425 compared to cash used in financing activities of $(40,998) as of September 30, 2019. The increase in cash provided by our financing activities was due to sales of our preferred stock, common stock, warrants and promissory note proceeds as part of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act’s Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP).

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2020, we had working capital of $24,535,292 and a loss from operations of $2,237,248 for the period then ended. While there can be no guarantees, we believe cash on hand, in connection with cash from operations, will be sufficient to fund operations for the next year of operations. In addition, we intend to pursue other opportunities of financing with outside investors.

 

 On April 7, 2020, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement ( the “Purchase Agreement”)with an institutional investor, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized 1,050 shares of a newly designated series of preferred stock, the Series E Convertible Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock was convertible at $0.25 per share into an aggregate of 4,200,000 shares of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share. The purchase price for the Preferred Stock was $1,050,000 of which we received net proceeds of $1,010,000. The Preferred Stock has liquidation rights senior to the common stock, but pari passu with the Series C Preferred Stock and the Series D Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock has no voting rights. The conversion price adjusts for stock splits and combinations and is subject to anti-dilution protection for subsequent equity issuances until such time as no shares of Series E Preferred Stock are outstanding. The Certificate of Designation of the Series E Convertible Preferred Stock was filed with the State of Nevada on April 2, 2020.We also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, granting registration rights to the Purchaser with respect to the Conversion Shares and common stock underlying warrants currently owned by the Purchaser.

 

On May 11, 2020, we entered into a Purchase Agreement with an institutional investor and existing Company shareholder (the “Investor”) pursuant to which we agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 2,400,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, and pre-funded warrants (the “Pre-Funded Warrants”) to purchase up to 3,260,377 shares of common stock, for gross proceeds of approximately $6 million and net proceeds of $5,950,010 after issuance costs. The purchase price for each share of common stock was $1.06 and the purchase price for each Pre-Funded Warrant was $1.05999. The exercise price for each Warrant was $0.001. Net proceeds from the sale were used to repurchase 262 shares of our Series E Preferred Stock, convertible into 1,048,000 shares of common stock currently held by the Investor at a repurchase price of $1.06 per share of common stock. We expect to use the balance for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, we agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 60-day period following the closing, where we will not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of common Stock or common Stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions. The exercise price of the Warrants and the shares of the common stock issuable upon the exercise thereof were subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Warrants, and were exercisable on a “cashless” basis in certain circumstances.

 

On June 24, 2020, we entered into a Purchase Agreement with an Investor pursuant to which we agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 4,407,400 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, pre-funded warrants to purchase up to 1,956,236 shares of common stock, and warrants to purchase up to 2,455,476 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.35 per share (the “Warrants”), for gross proceeds of $7 million (which includes subsequent payment of the exercise price of the Pre-Funded Warrants in the amount of $1,956.24). Upon exercise of the Warrants in full by the Investor, we will receive additional gross proceeds of $3,314,892.60. The shares of common stock underlying the Pre-Funded Warrants and the Warrants are referred to as “Warrant Shares.”

 

The purchase price for each share of common Stock is $1.10 and the purchase price for each Pre-Funded Warrant is $1.099. The exercise price for each Pre-Funded Warrant is $0.001. Net proceeds from the sale will be used for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. The Shares, Pre-funded Warrants, Warrants and Warrant Shares are being offered by us pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-239157), which was declared effective on June 19, 2020.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, we agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 75-day period following the closing, we will not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of common stock or common stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions, including if the consolidated closing price on the trading market on which our common stock is traded at the time is greater than $1.90 (adjusted for any subsequent stock splits or similar capital adjustments) for five consecutive trading days, we may issue such securities at not less than $1.90 per common stock Equivalent. The Investor has a right from the date of the Purchase Agreement until December 31, 2020 to participate in a subsequent financing by us or any of its Subsidiaries of common stock or common stock Equivalents for cash consideration, indebtedness or a combination of units thereof (a “Subsequent Financing”), in an amount equal to 50% of the Subsequent Financing on the same terms, conditions and price provided for in the Subsequent Financing.

 

The exercise price of the Prefunded Warrants and the Warrants and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof will be subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Prefunded Warrants and the Warrants. The Warrants will be exercisable on a “cashless” basis only in the event there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the sale of the shares underlying the Warrants. The Pre-Funded Warrants allow for cashless exercise at any time. The Pre-Funded Warrants and the Warrants each contain a beneficial ownership limitation, such that none of such Pre-Funded Warrants nor the Warrants may be exercised, if, at the time of such exercise, the holder would become the beneficial owner of more than 9.99% of our outstanding shares of common stock following the exercise of such Pre-Funded Warrant or Warrant. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 we received $2,632,500 in additional gross proceeds associated with exercise of the Warrant Shares. As of September 30, 2020, 505,476 Warrant Shares at an exercise price of $1.35 per share remain outstanding.

On August 4, 2020, we and an institutional investor and existing Company shareholder entered into a Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which we agreed to sell to the Investor in a registered direct offering 3,335,705 shares of common stock, par value $0.001, and warrants to purchase up to 2,516,778 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.30 per share, for gross proceeds of approximately $10 million. Upon exercise of the Warrants in full by the Investor, we would receive additional gross proceeds of approximately $8,305,367.

 

The purchase price for each share of Common Stock was $2.98. Net proceeds from the sale will be used for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. The shares and the warrant were being offered by us pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-239157), which was declared effective on June 19, 2020.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, we have agreed to certain restrictions on future stock offerings, including that during the 75-day period following the closing, we will not issue (or enter into any agreement to issue) any shares of Common Stock or Common Stock equivalents, subject to certain exceptions, including if the consolidated closing price on the trading market on which the our Common Stock is traded at the time is greater than $5.00 (adjusted for any subsequent stock splits or similar capital adjustments) for ten consecutive trading days, we may issue such securities at not less than $5.00 per Common Stock Equivalent. In addition, our executive officers and directors agreed that they shall not sell (or hedge in any manner) any of their shares of the Common Stock for a period ending September 7, 2020. The Investor has a right from the date of the Purchase Agreement until December 31, 2020, to participate in a subsequent financing by us or any of our Subsidiaries of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents for cash consideration, indebtedness or a combination of units thereof (a “Subsequent Financing”), in an amount equal to 50% of the Subsequent Financing on the same terms, conditions and price provided for in the Subsequent Financing.

 

The exercise price of the Warrants and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise thereof will be subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction, as described in the Warrants. The Warrants will be exercisable on a “cashless” basis only in the event there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the sale of the shares underlying the Warrants. The Warrants contain a beneficial ownership limitation, such that none of such Warrants may be exercised, if, at the time of such exercise, the holder would become the beneficial owner of more than 9.99% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock following the exercise of such Warrant. The Warrant is for a ten-month term and is not exercisable for the first six months.

 

Our primary need for liquidity is to fund working capital requirements of our business, capital expenditures, acquisitions, debt service and for general corporate purposes. To date, our primary source of liquidity is funds generated by financing activities and from private placements. Our ability to fund our operations, to make planned capital expenditures, to make planned acquisitions, to make scheduled debt payments, and to repay or refinance indebtedness depends on our future operating performance and cash flows, which are subject to prevailing economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, some of which are beyond our control.
