NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE QUARTER ENDED June 30, 2021
NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Resonate Blends, Inc. formerly Textmunication Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on in October 1984 in the State of Georgia as Brock Control Systems. Founded by Richard T. Brock, the Company was in the sales automation market and an early developer of enterprise customer management systems. The Company went public at the end of March of 1993. In February of 1996, the Company changed its name to Brock International Inc., and in March of 1998, the Company again changed our name to Firstwave Technologies, Inc.
On January 20, 2020, Wais Asefi resigned as Chairman and as a member of our Board of Directors. Mr. Asefi’s resignation is in support of Resonate Blends strategic direction of becoming a pure play cannabis company. The Company does not believe that Mr. Asefi has any disagreements on matters relating to our operations, policies or practices. Also, on January 20, 2020, our Board of Directors appointed Geoffrey Selzer as our Chairman.
In connection with the name change, the Company’s symbol was changed to “KOAN” that more resembles the Company’s new business focus.
On May 22, 2020, Resonate Blends, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with Wais Asefi, Nick Miniello, Juleon Asefi, and Curt Byers (collectively, the “Asefi Group”) to sell to the Asefi Group its subsidiary, Textmunication, Inc., a California corporation (“Textmunication”). Textmunication operates the Company’s SMS business activities. The Company will retain its cannabis operations based in Calabasas, California.
The consideration for the sale of Textmunication consists of the cancellation by the Asefi Group of shares of common stock (the “Shares”) of the Company. The Shares have a market value of $337,542, based on our last sales price of $per share as of May 26, 2020. Upon the cancellation of the Shares, the Company agreed to execute a general release in favor of Mr. Asefi.
Also on May 22, 2020, the Company entered into a Separation and Release Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) with Wais Asefi. Pursuant to the Separation Agreement, Mr. Asefi agreed to separate from all officer positions and as a director of the Company and to further accept the payment of $200,000 from the Company’s future fundraising as consideration of all debts outstanding under Mr. Asefi’s employment agreement with the Company. Mr. Asefi further agreed to cancel his shares of Series A Preferred Stock and to transfer his shares of Series C Preferred Stock to Geoffrey Selzer, the Company’s current CEO and Director. Mr. Asefi further released the Company of all claims.
Also on May 22, 2020, Mr. Selzer signed a Voting Agreement and agreed to vote his newly acquired shares of Series C Preferred Stock in favor of the sale of Textmunication to the Asefi Group.
On July 20, 2020, the parties closed on the transactions contained in the SPA. The Asefi Group cancelled shares of common stock (the “Shares”) of the Company. The Shares have a market value of $332,842, based on our last sales price of $per share as of May 26, 2020. The Company also executed a general release in favor of Mr. Asefi.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s most recent Annual Financial Statements filed with the SEC on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim period presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal period, as reported in the Form 10-K, have been omitted.
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. As of June 30, 2021, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $27,540,986. The company’s ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon the successful completion of additional financing arrangements and its ability to achieve and maintain profitable operations. While the Company is expanding its best efforts to achieve the above plans, there is no assurance that any such activity will generate funds that will be available for operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of one year from the issuance of these financial statements. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might arise from this uncertainty.
NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
The Company minimizes its credit risk associated with cash by periodically evaluating the credit quality of its primary financial institution. The balance at times may exceed federally insured limits. As of June 30, 2021, the company balances exceeded the federally insured limit by approximately $1,250,000 deposited under one institution. Management is making certain arrangements to mitigate this risk during the next quarter.
The Company did not have any revenues from continuing operations for the periods presented. The Company’s policy is that revenues will be recognized when control of the product is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration we expect to be entitled to in exchange for those services.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts reflected in the balance sheets for cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate the respective fair values due to the short maturities of these items.
As required by the Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the FASB ASC, fair value is measured based on a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows: (Level 1) observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; (Level 2) inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and (Level 3) unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;
Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs that is observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability;
Level 3: Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (supported by little or no market activity).
Financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized below for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and year ended December 31, 2020.
SUMMARY OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES MEASURED AT FAIR VALUE ON RECURRING BASIS
|As of June 30, 2021||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Total|
|As of December 31, 2020||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Total|
Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to the common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Fully diluted loss per share is computed similar to basic loss per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive.
Property and equipment
Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation provided on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from three to seven years. Expenditures for renewals or betterments are capitalized, and repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred the cost and accumulated depreciation of assets sold or otherwise disposed of are removed from the accounts, and any gain or loss thereon is reflected in operations. Company policy capitalize property and equipment for cost over $1,000, asset acquired under $1,000 are charge to operations.
Income taxes are computed using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws. A valuation allowance is provided for the amount of deferred tax assets that, based on available evidence, are not expected to be realized. Because the Company has no net income, the tax benefit of the accumulated net loss has been fully offset by an equal valuation allowance.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles 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 the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The Company accounts for employee stock-based compensation in accordance with the guidance of FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation which requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values. The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to compensation expense and credited to additional paid-in capital over the period during which services are rendered.
The Company follows ASC Topic 505-50, formerly EITF 96-18, “Accounting for Equity Instruments that are Issued to Other than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling Goods and Services,” for stock options and warrants issued to consultants and other non-employees. In accordance with ASC Topic 505-50, these stock options and warrants issued as compensation for services provided to the Company are accounted for based upon the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair market value of the option or warrant, whichever can be more clearly determined. The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to compensation expense and additional paid-in capital over the period during which services are rendered.
NOTE 3 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
On May 22, 2020, the Company entered into a Separation and Release Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) with Wais Asefi. Pursuant to the Separation Agreement, Mr. Asefi agreed to separate from all officer positions and as a director of the Company and to further accept the payment of $200,000 from the Company’s future fundraising as consideration of all debts outstanding under Mr. Asefi’s employment agreement with the Company. Mr. Asefi further agreed to cancel his shares of Series A Preferred Stock and to transfer his shares of Series C Preferred Stock to Geoffrey Selzer, the Company’s current CEO and Director. Mr. Asefi further released the Company of all claims.
On May 22, 2020, the shares of Series A Preferred Stock were returned to the Company’s transfer agent and cancelled and on May 22, 2020 the shares of Series C Preferred Stock were transferred to Mr. Selzer. The parties to the Separation Agreement agreed to a payment schedule of $200,000 based on future monies raised by the Company - and not on a specific date – as follows:
|●||$12,500 when the initial $250,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$12,500 when a total of $500,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$10,000 when a total of $750,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$35,000 when a total of $1,750,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$35,000 when a total of $2,750,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$35,000 when a total of $3,750,000 is raised by the Company;|
|●||$35,000 when a total of $4,750,000 is raised by the Company; and|
|●||$25,000 when a total of $5,750,000 is raised by the Company.|
On May 13, 2021, we amended the Separation Agreement to state the parties desire to reduce the total amount payable to Wais Asefi from $200,000 USD to $142,500 USD. In addition to the earlier payments made to Mr. Asefi, a payment of $40,000 was made on May 14, 2021 and another payment on June 27, 2021 for $40,000. The final payment due on August 11, 2021 is for $25,000. The final payment due on August 11, 2021 will settle this agreement in full. Further under the amendment, Mr. Asefi nominated Textmunication, Inc., our prior subsidiary, as the recipient of the funds due under the Separation Agreement.
The outstanding balances as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 are $25,000 and $187,500 respectively.
NOTE 4 - CONVERTIBLE NOTE PAYABLE
Convertible notes payable consists of the following as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:
SCHEDULE OF CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE
|June 30, 2021||December 31, 2020|
|Convertible notes face value||$||1,870,000||$||517,544|
|Less: Debt issuance cost||-|
|Net convertible notes||$||1,870,000||$||504,793|
Explanation of Derivative Liability Loss:
The convertible notes as of June 30, 2021 are 8% Unsecured Convertible Promissory Notes from various accredited investors issued from January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021. All notes have an automatic conversion into equity on the maturity date, which is January 2, 2022, or if a Qualified Financing (QF) of $5,000,000 is achieved, whichever occurs first. The maturity date pricing is the lesser of $.10 or 75% of the VWAP with a 20-day lookback. A QF converts into equity at the lesser of $1.00 or 75% of the average selling price of the aggregate offering. The derivative liability loss of $4,281,046 is based on the stock conversion occurring at the floor of $.10, but the conversion terms could be at a higher price if a QF event takes place.
The three months ended June interest accrued for the convertible notes payable at $12,263, $12,671 and $12,263 respectively.
Under U.S. GAAP, convertible debt is considered a “hybrid” financial instrument consisting of interest-bearing debt, referred to as the “host”, and certain embedded features requiring evaluation for bifurcation and separate accounting from the host instrument. ASC 815-15-25-1 provides the following guidance for determining whether an embedded feature should be accounted for separately as a derivative:
An embedded derivative shall be separated from the host contract and accounted for as a derivative instrument pursuant to Subtopic 815-10 if and only if all of the following criteria are met:
|a.||The economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract.|
|b.||The hybrid instrument is not remeasured at fair value under otherwise applicable generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur.|
|c.||A separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative would, pursuant to Section 815-10-15, be a derivative instrument subject to the requirements of this Subtopic.|
If an issuer concludes that any of the embedded features should be bifurcated and accounted for as derivatives, the issuer should determine the fair value of these features upon issuance and record them on the balance sheet as a derivative liability with a corresponding amount recorded as debt discount. This discount should be amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method. Any changes in fair value of the derivative liability subsequent to issuance should be recognized in the income statement in the period in which the change occurs.
The Company accounts for the fair value of the conversion features of its convertible debt in accordance with ASC Topic No. 815-15 “Derivatives and Hedging; Embedded Derivatives” (“Topic No. 815-15”). Topic No. 815-15 requires the Company to bifurcate and separately account for the conversion features as an embedded derivative contained in the Company’s convertible debt. The Company is required to carry the embedded derivative on its balance sheet at fair value and account for’ any unrealized change in fair value as a component of results of operations. The Company values the embedded derivatives using the Black-Scholes pricing model.

On October 25, 2019, Resonate Blends, Inc. (formerly Textmunication Holdings Inc.) announced its entry into the cannabis industry by acquiring Resonate Blends LLC (“Resonate” or the “Company”), a California-based cannabis wellness lifestyle product company built on a proprietary system of experiential targets. Resonate is building a value-added, brand-focused cannabis organization offering premium brands of consistent quality. The Company also acquired Entourage Labs LLC (“Entourage Labs”), a sister company of Resonate. Entourage Labs is the Intellectual Property (IP) subsidiary of Resonate.
Based in Calabasas, California, Resonate Blends, Inc. is a cannabis holding company centered on valued-added holistic Wellness and Lifestyle brands. The Company’s strategy is to ignite future growth by building a purpose-driven portfolio of innovative, trusted national brands, emerging brands, research organizations, and a variety of retail channels. The Company’s focus is finding mutual value between product and consumer by optimizing quality, supply chain resources and financial performance. The Company offers a family of premium cannabis-based products of consistent quality based on unique formations calibrated to Resonate Blends effects system in what we believe is the industry gold standard in user experience.
The Company believes the greatest long-term value creation in the cannabis industry will be in the establishment of high quality and consistent consumer brands. Resonate hopes to become a national leader through its vision in creating a family of brands designed specifically to deliver reliable, effective, beneficial experiences.
Resonate is committed to helping you live the life you love. We do not make the medicinal vs. recreational distinction. This is a temporary legal separation in some states that we expect will soon cease to exist. We believe in wellness for the whole person. We know that people with pain or anxiety also want to enjoy friends, concerts and have satisfying intimate experiences. We are designing experiences which will improve all areas of our lives.
To accomplish this, Resonate is Mastering the Art of Experience. This is our mission. By integrating science, technology, education, branding, marketing, sales and delivery - with every customer interaction we aim to provide exceptional experiences. Cannabis has a broad range of unique characteristics and we are dedicated to harnessing and amplifying those characteristics to support healthy empowered and engaged lifestyles. From product development through customer communication, we prefect and demystify cannabis bringing innovative products to an increasingly sophisticated market. Resonate Blends has a strong social mission and the Resonate team is building a successful business by focusing our knowledge, skill and energy on creating wellness-lifestyle products which will improve community by helping individuals live more satisfying, meaningful and connected lives. The need for these products at this time is crucial.
To communicate the breadth of wellness products that Resonate is developing, our team created The Resonate System. The Resonate System graphically represents a spectrum of wellness products based on cannabis scaffolding. This system helps users easily select which product they want. Products based on The Resonate System deliver relaxation, freedom from pain and anxiety, boosts in focus and creativity, sensuality, human connection and joy. Our products are formulated around a system of interconnected experience targets that will allow you to know exactly what to expect when using them.
While respecting and honoring the natural power of plant medicine, Resonate also employs advanced science, leading technology and a deep understanding of how various cannabis compounds, when working in the body, simultaneously can create unique effects and benefits (referred to as the “Entourage Effect”). Our product developers blend cannabinoids and terpenes to formulate products with specific, controllable and repeatable, beneficial effects. Through innovation, experimentation, testing and an iterative product development strategy, our team has unlocked new plant constituent combinations resulting in unique, enjoyable and extremely effective wellness products unlike anything else in the marketplace. Resonate has filed a provisional patent for protection of these formulations and products in the future.
Koan, the Resonate Blends product family, is based around a comprehensive system of interconnected experience targets that allow people to select the products that best fit their lifestyle and health objectives. Koan products are dedicated to the efficacy and precision of functional experience targets across a broad range of product categories.
Resonate’s initial products are a completely unique class of products called Cordials. These blends offer a wide range of experiences not currently available in the cannabis market. Our Cordials are water-soluble and use nano-emulsification technology to allow for quick onset and a sustained and nuanced experience. Single dose, healthful, subtle in taste, cordials are an ideal way for people to gently intentionally improve their well-being. They can be shipped directly or substituted for alcohol as a cocktail mixer.
Resonate’s Cordials have been developed in partnership with an award-winning advanced infusion technology partner and were launched to the retail channel in late Q2 of 2021. The company is offering six unique blends at its initial release and expects to have additional blends by the end of 2021.
We have formalized contracts with our logistical and marketing partners and are building a digital native strategy supporting direct to consumer sales. This release will be followed with our second product line that is already in full development and is expected for targeted commercial release before the end of 2021.
The Company signed a custom development contract with Vertosa in March of 2020, the leading provider of safe, reliable emulsion bases for infused product developers. This contract was a major milestone for the Company as it selected its strategic partners to develop innovative products and solutions.
Vertosa is an award-winning strategic partner who will assist the Company in the launch of its first unique category of six water soluble products. These multi-use products deliver specific, predictable, reliable, effects in a format that is completely unique in the industry. The first product developed collaboratively is the Cordial product line, but both companies expect several other products to be developed over time utilizing Vertosa’s emulsification technology.
The Vertosa and Resonate teams share a mission of maximizing the benefits of cannabinoids and plant medicine. Resonate selected Vertosa as a development partner because the Vertosa systems’ industry leading emulsification technology makes them highly stable, bioavailable, and water compatible. All of Vertosa’s inactive base materials are FDA approved and are lab tested for quality. Vertosa’s Hemp-derived CBD Emulsion System is now certified organic by CCOF, a United States Department of Agriculture-accredited certifier and non-profit advocacy group, and the company has also received its Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification, confirming that its offerings follow regulations promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration and are safe, pure, and effective.
The Company partnered with The Galley, a California licensed Type N – Infused Products Manufacturer based in Santa Rosa, California. The Galley produces and packages premium award-winning products and has worked with some of the most popular brands in the industry. The Galley is built to FDA and CDPH standards and is focused on high demand areas of production – Edibles, Topicals, Tinctures, Chocolate, Hard Candies, Gummies, Pre-Rolls, Flower, Vapes and Beverages.
Resonate and The Galley entered into a Master Services Agreement in which The Galley will manufacture and package Resonate’s first family of products to precise specifications. The Galley also has a Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) issued distribution license in California and, along with other select distribution partners, will distribute Resonate’s products to retail establishments throughout the state.
The Galley and Resonate have been in frequent contact throughout Resonate’s development period and are now supporting the production of the Company’s unique family of wellness lifestyle products. Resonate’s first of its kind offerings are emulsified through the advanced infusion technology provided by award-winning Vertosa and collaboratively developed to push the state of the art in its cannabis products.
Because of the unique nature of Resonate’s Koan products and the recent expansion of home delivery services in the cannabis industry, Resonate has prioritized a direct-to-consumer method as their primary sales strategy. Resonate has identified a technology partner who will add an e-commerce feature to the Koan web site that will allow the Company to sell products directly to consumers using a licensed California state-wide delivery network for fulfilment.
In addition to direct sales, the company plans to offer products to select premium dispensaries throughout California. These products will be delivered to retail establishments by a leading cannabis full service distributor. The Company contracted with MARS Distribution to provide logistics and statewide distribution for Resonate’s Koan Cordials, its product line of unique experience blends currently available in California. MARS is the leading logistics and sales partner for cannabis beverages and top cannabis brands in California.
MARS was built to support the massive growth in the cannabis industry and bring efficiency and consistency to it. With a focus on beverages, MARS is the only distributor equipped to support the movement, storage, and sales of beverages in California. With hubs in Costa Mesa, Sacramento, Nevada and three more hubs under way, MARS delivers orders to retailers in 72 hours or less.
Resonate is also developing relationships with a variety of complementary distribution channels such as subscription box companies and other non-storefront reseller organizations.
Marketing and Sales Plan
The cannabis industry is changing daily in response to updated regulations, customer product education, new interest from various demographics and now the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we are constantly attentive to these changes as they affect the marketing of our products. Our initial marketing strategy was to launch in select dispensaries in Los Angeles and to support the launch with dispensary promotional material and location-based marketing. However, in the current market the Company has decided to modify this strategy. Paradoxically, retail restrictions and safety regulations were actually beneficial for us, as these allowed us to reprioritize our sales approach and to build a marketing plan around on-line dispensaries with wide delivery networks. Although retail restrictions will eventually be relaxed, we do not expect that storefront dispensaries will return to the dominant role they played in the cannabis industry before COVID-19 for several reasons. Dispensaries are generally small, making social distancing difficult. Limitations on a customers’ ability to touch and smell products reduces the value of in-person shopping. Restrictions on the number of people allowed in these small spaces will create waiting lines outside stores, which will be inconvenient and even embarrassing for some. Finally, we have learned that a significant number of customers, particularly in our targeted demographic, really prefer the privacy and convenience of having products delivered to their homes. For all these reasons, we have decided to focus our marketing budget for at least the next six to nine months on supporting online and delivery outlets.
In response to the sudden change in customer buying preferences, Resonate has accelerated our plan to sell directly to consumers. We are in the process of partnering with an on-line platform which will allow us to communicate the value of our products directly to consumers. This platform will connect consumers to a licensed retail and California-wide home delivery network. This direct-to-consumer approach has significant benefits for us. First, it allows us to control our brand messaging and to assure that we are able to provide the information and education customers need to make confident and informed product choices. Through this method, we also have access to customer information which is not available from dispensaries, which allows us to employ successful marketing techniques used by leading on-line retailers such as customer loyalty programs, memberships, ambassadors, etc., to build brand awareness and increase sales. It is also better for us financially as it increases our profit margin.
Therefore, our marketing budget and energy is now being channeled into appropriate programmatic advertising, developing informational materials for customers on our website, and developing professional and effective social media, search engine optimization and direct to consumer marketing campaigns. We will also offer training and market support to select premium California dispensaries. We expect that building our brand online will complement retail sales by increasing customer awareness and creating “pull-through” at brick-and-mortar facilities.
Resonate has partnered with Good People LLC as its statewide Koan Cordial sales team. Good People is working closely with Resonate Blends’ marketing team to plan events, train budtenders, schedule and track relevant promotions and inform the innovation pipeline with field insights. Koan Cordials dispensary buyer sample kits are now available through Good People and dispensaries are now stocking the product in strategic geographical locations.
Future Koan Product - Resonate Growth Plans
For the first 12 months, Resonate will concentrate on releasing product and brand building in our home state of California. Resonate plans to follow the launch of its first six Koan products with others based on The Resonate System at regular intervals. Our formulas, combined with the proprietary Vertosa technology, will allow the Company to quickly deliver controlled, predictable, enjoyable effects in beverages, teas, and gummies. Vertosa is the leading provider of emulsification technology for cannabis manufacturers. Emulsification allows cannabinoids to become water-soluble so that they can be added to Cordials, beverages, gummies, etc. Vertosa and Resonate are engaged in joint research focusing on effects of various emulsification methods on cannabinoids. We are working on methods that improve user experience by refining effects and managing bioavailability. Vertosa will also be providing the emulsification required for formulas in Resonate’s product line.
The cannabis industry is in its infancy. Resonate’s growth strategy is to create an innovative ecosystem of companies, investments and research that all support The Resonate System and our mission of empowering the wellness market. In addition to creating our “house” brands, the Company is also looking for other quality brands which could be incubated or targeted as either strategic partners or as acquisitions. Integrating these companies, we believe will provide consistent product quality that yields expected results and that also allows us to build a stable, successful company overall.
Resonate’s first commercial release is a family of six precisely targeted effect blends. These products are category-breaking offerings as they are neither tinctures nor beverages but have the benefits of both. They are emulsified, water soluble, single-dose formulas that can be enjoyed privately or shared socially. Resonate plans to make these available initially in California in stylish mini bottles, each containing a single dose. They can be sipped directly from the bottle or poured into beverages. Koan products offer the very high bioavailability of tinctures not possible to deliver with edibles, take effect generally within minutes and provide benefits for approximately 3 hours. Significantly, these formulas all provide a pleasant predictable experience, a gentle onset and exit and have no unpleasant sensations or aftereffects sometimes associated with cannabis products. Our current products are as follows:
CBD rich with a hint of THC, Calm is formulated to quiet your mind and ease you into a gentle sense of wellbeing.
Our highest THC offering, Wonder is carefully crafted to bring back that youthful sense of wonder and awe we feel when we are fully engaged with our senses and environment.
Balance is a subtle combination of cannabinoids and terpenes formulated to bring your mind, body and spirit back to an even state of harmony and homeostasis.
Create is formulated to stimulate your senses, spark your imagination and channel your inner muse. Led by a stimulative blend of terpenes and just the right amount of THC to inspire and facilitate the artist in you.
We formulated Play to help you become fully immersed in the moment and the people around you. From the park to the beach to the dance floor, Play helps you find your groove and keep it going.
Put on your rose-colored glasses and give everything some extra sparkle with Delight. Designed to open up your senses, raise your spirits and brighten your day.
The cannabis market still primarily consists of products of varying quality and poor branding. Much of the branding is heavy “stoner” or hospital medicinal, and differentiation between products is difficult. As a result, finding a product with controllable, consistent effects is difficult. Even products of high and reliable quality all look alike and have no shelf appeal. In addition, there is a mismatch between the fastest growing demographic and many current product offerings, which are designed to be inhaled. This is exactly why we have developed Koan Cordials, tasty, single dose, healthy cannabis products with timeless, exceptional branding. As the market matures, some companies are recognizing the importance of branding. Branded category leaders represent the 10 spots among best-selling products and sales data supports the desire among consumers for branded products. This is further supported by Headset, data (the leading industry provider of retail buying patterns), which shows that brands are leading every category in cannabis. Further, branded products command higher prices. Some branded products generate pricing as high as 151%, over industry average. The Resonate team excels in product branding.
There is no product in the marketplace exactly like our Koan products at this time. Other companies offer tinctures (which are concentrated herbal extracts made by soaking the bark, berries, leaves (dried or fresh), or roots from one or more plants in alcohol or vinegar), tea, salves, patches and cosmetics and vapes, and some of them provide effects which may be similar to those the Koan products will provide, but we believe that none are equal to ours with respect to quality, efficacy, consistency and scope. Our products are water soluble and can be enjoyed privately or poured in beverages and shared socially. We believe that the total experience offered by our products cannot be found elsewhere in the industry.
While there are a number of very fine products in the premium cannabis space, there is not yet a dominant brand in any category. Some are leading but no brand dominates. Data indicates that our targeted demographic seeks out trusted brands when making product selections. Resonate is bringing to market custom, reliable, experience-targeted products. which can be sipped or shared, offered under a well-crafted brand supported by an accessible information system. We provide The Resonate System so customers can understand what to expect and can make informed confident selections.
To summarize, we have signed and announced definitive agreements with various partners to execute on our overall business strategy. Our partner Vertosa is expected to develop our unique formulations through its advanced nano-emulsification process, The Galley is expected to assemble and package, the Good People to sell the products, MARS Distribution to distribute our products and Way To Blue is expected to actively market and deliver social media channels to the California market. This release will be followed with our second product line that is already in full development and is expected for targeted commercial release before the end of 2021.
Our principal executive office is located at 26565 Agoura Road, Suite 200, Calabasas, CA 91302. Our executive telephone number is (571) 888-0009.
Results of Operation for Three Months Ended June 30, 2021 and 2020
We have generated no sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with no sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 on our current product line, but sales of $172,144 and $477,734 from the discontinued operations of our sold subsidiary, Textmunication, Inc., for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. We recently launched our first line of six Cordial products to the retail channel in California and will start to generate revenues from the sales of these products in Q3.
We anticipate increased revenues on our six Cordials for the rest of the year, along with a rollout of our second product line before year’s end, which we hope will contribute to increasing our revenues. As we have just launched our products to the retail channel, however, it may take some time for the markets to react, gain traction and result in brand awareness among our customers. There can be no assurances, however, that customers will positively react to our products.
Our operating expenses were $1,397,013 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with $527,904 for the three months ended June 30, 2020. Our operating expenses were $2,175,025 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with $1,079,315 for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
The main reason for the increased operating expense in 2021 was a result of non-cash management fees in this quarter of $986,121, while in 2020 we only had $198,515 in non-cash management fees. Non-cash expenses appear on an income statement because accounting principles require them to be recorded despite not actually being paid for with cash.
The non-cash management fees resulted from salary deferrals for insiders from 2020 that we issued in shares of common stock. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense item.
We expect that our operating expenses will increase in 2021 over 2020 as a result of our product launch and the increased expenses associated with our increased operations. If we are not able to meet the salaries of our management and are required to issue out stock as compensation, these non-cash expenses will also increase our operating expenses in future quarters.
We had other expenses of $3,984,516 for the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared with other expenses of $694,402 for the same period ended June 30, 2020. We had other expenses of $4,264,966 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared with other expenses of $619,168 for the same period ended June 30, 2020.
The main reason for our increased other expenses in 2021 was a result of loss on revaluation of derivative liabilities.
We had net loss of $5,381,529 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with net loss of $1,182,083 for the three months ended June 30, 2020. We had net loss of $6,439,991 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with net loss of $1,790,911 for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2021, we had total current assets of $1,146,755 consisting of $975,869 in cash and $170,886 in advances to suppliers. Our total current liabilities as of June 30, 2021 were $6,298,540. We had a working capital deficit of $5,151,785 as of June 30, 2021, compared with a working capital deficit of $996,439 as of December 31, 2020.
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
Operating activities used $1,802,187 in cash for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared with cash used of $762,261 for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Our negative operating cash flow for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was largely the result of our net loss of $6,439,991, offset by share based compensation of $986,121. Our negative operating cash flow for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was largely the result of our net loss of $1,790,911.
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
We used $21,063 in cash used in investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 for the purchase of fixed assets. We had no cash on investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
Cash flows provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2021 amounted to $2,684,794 compared with cash flows provided by financing activities of $890,862 for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Our positive cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2021 consisted of proceeds from issuance of common stock of $1,319,587, proceeds from Convertible notes payable of $1,870,000, offset by payments of notes payable of $504,793. Our positive cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 consisted primarily of convertible notes, notes payable and stock subscriptions.
From December 1, 2020 through March 15, 2021, we sold units priced at $25,000 per unit where each unit consisted of (i) an 8.0% Note in the principal amount of $25,000 convertible into Common Stock (the “Note) and (ii) a warrant for the purchase of 83,333 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Warrant”).
We sold 90 Units for total proceeds of $2,265,000. After paying finder fees of $187,450 to our placement agent, we netted $2,077,550, which will be used for working capital.
In addition, we also entered into subscription agreements in connection with an equity placement offering of a maximum of $2,000,000 in units (the “Equity Units”) where each Equity Unit consists of one share of Common Stock at a purchase price of $0.15 and a warrant to purchase 0.5 share(s) of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.225 per share. We sold 6,983,333 Equity Units for total proceeds of $1,047,500. After paying finder fees of $100,763 to our placement agent, we netted $946,737, which was used to pay off the remaining convertible note debt and will also be used for working capital. We also issued our placement agent 250,000 shares in restricted stock on May 21, 2020 as part of the Placement Agent and Advisory Services Agreement.
Until we are able to generate sufficient revenues to sustain operations, we are dependent on investment capital to continue our survival. There can be no assurance of funds from these efforts or that any other type of additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms, or at all.
As of June 30, 2021, we have an accumulated deficit of $27,540,986. Our ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon the successful completion of additional financing arrangements and our ability to achieve and maintain profitable operations. While we are expanding our best efforts to achieve the above plans, there is no assurance that any such activity will generate funds that will be available for operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might arise from this uncertainty.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of June 30, 2021, there were no off-balance sheet arrangements.
Critical Accounting Policies
In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Our critical accounting policies are disclosed in Note 2 of our audited financial statements included in the Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
No new accounting pronouncements issued or effective during the fiscal year has had or is expected to have a material impact on the financial statements.

We conducted an evaluation, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, as of June 30, 2021, to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports filed or submitted by us under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, including to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports filed or submitted by us under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that as of June 30, 2021, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the material weaknesses identified and described below.
Our principal executive officers do not expect that our disclosure controls or internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. Although our disclosure controls and procedures were designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and our principal executive officers have determined that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at doing so, a control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute assurance that the objectives of the system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented if there exists in an individual a desire to do so. There can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.
Remediation Plan to Address the Material Weaknesses in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Management identified the following three material weaknesses that have caused management to conclude that, as of June 30, 2021, our disclosure controls and procedures, and our internal control over financial reporting, were not effective at the reasonable assurance level:
|1.||We do not have written documentation of our internal control policies and procedures. Written documentation of key internal controls over financial reporting is a requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act as of the period ending June 30, 2021. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have written documentation of our internal controls and procedures on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.|
|2.||We do not have sufficient segregation of duties within accounting functions, which is a basic internal control. Due to our size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible. However, to the extent possible, the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions should be performed by separate individuals. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have segregation of duties on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.|
|3.||Effective controls over the control environment were not maintained. Specifically, a formally adopted written code of business conduct and ethics that governs our employees, officers, and directors was not in place. Additionally, management has not developed and effectively communicated to employees its accounting policies and procedures. This has resulted in inconsistent practices. Further, our Board of Directors does not currently have any independent members and no director qualifies as an audit committee financial expert as defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. Since these entity level programs have a pervasive effect across the organization, management has determined that these circumstances constitute a material weakness.|
To address these material weaknesses, management performed additional analyses and other procedures to ensure that the financial statements included herein fairly present, in all material respects, our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Accordingly, we believe that the financial statements included in this report fairly present, in all material respects, our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
To remediate the material weakness in our documentation, evaluation and testing of internal controls we plan to engage a third-party firm to assist us in remedying this material weakness once resources become available.
We intend to remedy our material weakness with regard to insufficient segregation of duties by hiring additional employees in order to segregate duties in a manner that establishes effective internal controls once resources become available.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
No change in our system of internal control over financial reporting occurred during the period covered by this report, the period ended June 30, 2021, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
