ALMOST NEVER FILMS : MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (form 10-Q)

09/23/2021 | 03:44pm EDT

Business Development

SMACK Sportswear ("SMACK or the Company") was originally incorporated in Nevada in October 2007. Through June 30, 2016, we were a manufacturer and seller of performance and lifestyle based indoor and sand volleyball apparel and accessories. As of July 31, 2015, we completed the disposition of certain assets of the Company to William Sigler, a former director of the Company; in connection with said transactions Mr. Sigler resigned and agreed to sell all his shares of common stock in the Company. As a result of the sale of certain inventory from the Company to Mr. Sigler, the Company was considered a "shell company" (as such term is defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended).

On January 15, 2016, pursuant to the share exchange agreement, among Almost Never Films Inc. f/k/a Smack Sportswear (the "Company", "we," "our" or "us"), Almost Never Films Inc. ("ANF"), an Indiana corporation, and the two shareholders of ANF (the "ANF Shareholders"), we issued to the ANF Shareholders, 1,000,000 shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Series A Preferred Stock"), par value $0.001 per share in exchange for all 100,000,000 shares of the issued and outstanding common stock of ANF (the "Share Exchange"). As a result of the Share Exchange, ANF became our wholly-owned subsidiary, and our business has become the business of ANF, effective January 15, 2016.

The share exchange was accounted for as a "reverse acquisition," and resulted in a recapitalization. Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana) is deemed to be the acquirer for accounting purposes. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed were $6,566 and $598,869, respectively. Consequently, the assets and liabilities and the historical operations that will be reflected in the financial statements prior to the share exchange will be those of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana) and will be recorded at the historical cost basis of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana), and the combined financial statements after completion of the share exchange include the assets and liabilities of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana), historical operations of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana), and operations of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana) from the closing date of the share exchange. As a result of the issuance of the shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock pursuant to the share exchange, a change in control of the Company occurred as of the date of consummation of the share exchange. All share and per share information in the accompanying consolidated financial statements and footnotes has been retroactively restated to reflect the recapitalization. The Company has not yet generated any revenue since the reverse acquisition.

On February 29, 2016, the stockholders of Smack voted to amend the Articles of Incorporation of the Company to (i) increase the authorized capital of the Company to 200,000,00 shares of common stock and (ii) to change the name of the Company to "Almost Never Films Inc." which took effect on March 2, 2016.

The Company has 5,000,000 authorized preferred shares with no par value.

Smack issued 1,000,000 shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to the Mr. Chan and Mr. Williams in exchange for all 100,000,000 shares of issued and outstanding common stock of Almost Never Films Inc. (Indiana), with a value of $10,000.

On March 4, 2016, all 1,000,000 preferred shares were converted into 100,000,000 common shares.

There were no shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2019.

On March 8, 2016, the Company executed a Stock Purchase Agreement with a shareholder. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company sold, and said shareholder purchased, an aggregate of 49,720,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock at a price of $0.005 per share in exchange for the cancellation of and discharge of certain promissory notes issued by the Company and payable to said shareholder. The foregoing issuance was deemed to be exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as not involving any public offering and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.

Criteria


The Company was originally incorporated in Nevada in October 2007 as Smack Sportswear ("Smack"), which originally manufactured and sold performance and lifestyle based indoor and sand volleyball apparel and accessories. The Company is now an independent film company focused on film production and production related services in connection with genre specific motion pictures with production costs in the $5.0 million to $50.0 million range.



History


As described above, we were incorporated in Nevada in October 2007 under the name SMACK Sportswear under which we manufactured and sold performance and lifestyle based indoor and sand volleyball apparel and accessories. As a result of the sale of certain inventory from the Company to Mr. Sigler in July 2015, the Company became a "shell company" (as such term is defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended). As a result of the Share Exchange, we acquired the proposed business of Almost Never.

Almost Never, our wholly-owned subsidiary upon the closing of Share Exchange, was incorporated in the State of Indiana on July 8, 2015. As a result of the Share Exchange, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name from "Smack Sportswear" to "Almost Never Films Inc." to more accurately reflect its new business. We also request changed the Company's OTCQB trading symbol to "HLWD"

We currently have authorized 30,000,000 shares of capital stock, consisting of (i) 25,000,000 shares of Common Stock, and (ii) 5,000,000 shares designated as preferred stock containing such rights, privileges and designations as our Board of directors may, from time to time, determine. As of the date of this Report, an aggregate of 5,203,765 shares of our Common Stock and no shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding.

On March 4, 2017, all previously authorized 1,000,000 preferred shares were converted into 2,500,000 common shares. In March through November 2017, the Company entered into four share purchase agreements with three investors for 312,500 common shares at $0.08 per share for total proceeds of $250,000

On March 8, 2017, the Company executed a Stock Purchase Agreement with a shareholder. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company sold, and said shareholder purchased, an aggregate of 1,243,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock at a price of $0.005 per share in exchange for the cancellation of and discharge of certain promissory notes issued by the Company and payable to said shareholder. The foregoing issuance was deemed to be exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as not involving any public offering and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.

On September 13, 2017, the Company completed a 1 for 40 reverse stock split and changed the authorized capital of the Company to 25,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $.001 per share.

Our principal executive office is located at 8605 Santa Monica Blvd #98258, West Hollywood, California 90069-4109.



Our Business


We are an independent film company focused on film production and production related services in connection with genre specific motion pictures with production costs in the $5.0 million to $50.0 million range.

Our business is to facilitate relationships (and as such, provide production related services) between creative talent (including writers, actors and directors) and companies who produce, finance and distribute motion pictures. We intend to acquire or license rights to materials upon which we believe motion pictures can be based (screenplays, books, short stories etcetera, which are referred to within the entertainment industry as the "underlying property"). We may further develop an underlying property by contracting for additional writing services and/or by bringing in new writers to perform "polishes" or "rewrites" on a particular underlying property.

If we are satisfied with the creative state of the underlying property, we then intend to make offers to directors and/or actors, to perform services in connection with a particular motion picture based on that underlying property. These offers are very often contingent and subject to the satisfaction of certain production elements, such as financier approval of the screenplay and the financier's selection of a start date for principal photography.

If a director or actors accepts one of our offers, the director or actors are said to be "attached" to the motion picture project. Armed with the underlying property and the attached creative element(s) (these elements are often called the "package" in Hollywood), we may then approach third party financiers seeking financing as well as distribution for the potential motion picture. Another approach that we may take is to contact the financiers first, seeking first to produce the film, and then with a finished (or nearly finished) motion picture product, obtain distribution for the picture.

We entered into our first two collaboration agreements to produce the films "Field Trip" and "Love is not Easy" during the quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Critical accounting policies and estimates

Our condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments 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 amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. We continually evaluate our estimates and judgments, our commitments to strategic alliance partners and the timing of the achievement of collaboration milestones. We base our estimates and judgments on historical experience and other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. All estimates, whether or not deemed critical, affect reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, as well as disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. These estimates and judgments are also based on historical experience and other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Materially different results can occur as circumstances change and additional information becomes known, even for estimates and judgments that are not deemed critical.



Going Concern


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. The Company has not completed its efforts to establish a stabilized source of revenues sufficient to cover operating costs over an extended period of time. These conditions raise substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern.

Management anticipates that the Company will be dependent, for the near future, on additional investment capital to fund operating expenses. The Company intends to position itself so that it may be able to raise additional funds through the capital markets. In light of management's efforts, there are no assurances that the Company will be successful in this or any of its endeavors or become financially viable and continue as a going concern.

Revenue. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded revenue of nil and $343,256, respectively. Revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2019 was associated with one film completed under a Production Service Agreement.

Cost of revenue. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company incurred cost of revenue of nil and $343,256, respectively. Cost of Revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2019 was associated with one film completed under a Production Service Agreement.

Operating Expenses. Operating expenses were $41,977 and $102,692 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and 2019, respectively. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, operating expenses consisted of professional fees of $21,000 and $34,441, respectively; and general administrative expenses of 20,977 and $68,251 respectively. The decrease in operating expenses during the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the prior year were primarily related to amortization of two prepaid consulting contracts during the three months ended September 30, 2019, of which there was no similar expense incurred during the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Other Expense. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred interest expenses of $8,890, relating to unsecured promissory notes payable. During the three months ended September 30, 2019, the Company incurred interest expenses of $19,760, relating to unsecured promissory notes payable and gain on modification debt of $19,782.

Net Loss. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, and 2019, we incurred a loss of $50,867 and $102,670, respectively. The decrease in loss was attributable to the decreases in our general administrative expenses, professional fees, and interest expense, offset by a gain on modification of debt incurred during the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. Significant factors in the management of liquidity are funds generated by operations, levels of accounts receivable and accounts payable and capital expenditures.

As of September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020 and 2019, we had a cash balance of $31,474 and $80,510, respectively. We do not have sufficient funds to operate for the next twelve months. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available to the Company. We currently have no agreements, arrangements or understandings with any person or entity to obtain funds through bank loans, lines of credit or any other sources. Since the Company has no such arrangements or plans currently in effect, its inability to raise funds for the above purposes will have a severe negative impact on its ability to remain a viable company.

As of September 30, 2020, we had a working capital deficit of $305,236 as compared to working capital deficit of $254,369 as of June 30, 2020. The increase in working capital deficit was mainly due to cash utilized in the Company's net loss and repayment of principal on a note payable.



Cash Flows

Cash Flows used in Operating Activities

Cash flows used in Operating Activities were essentially the same compared to the same period in the prior year. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, net cash used in operating activities was $45,059, compared to $47,889 net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended September 30, 2019.




Financing Activities



During the three months ended September 30, 2020, net cash used in financing activities was $3,977, compared to nil for the three months ended September 30, 2019. During the three months ended September 30, 2020 the Company paid $3,977 in accrued interest to a holder of one of its notes payable.



Going Concern Consideration


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets and liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company incurred a net loss of $50,867. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $305,236 and an accumulated deficit of $2,119,076. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.




         21

  Table of Contents




The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern and appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent upon, among other things, an additional cash infusion and an identification of new business opportunities. No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on operations, in the case of debt financing, or cause substantial dilution for our stockholders, in case of equity financing.

We do not have any material commitments for capital expenditures during the next twelve months. Although our proceeds from the issuance of debt and our offering of shares of common stock is currently sufficient to fund our operating expenses, we anticipate we will need to raise additional funds in the future so that we can expand our operations. Therefore, our future operations are dependent on our ability to secure additional financing. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. However, the trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect significant amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may have to curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations.

Off-balance sheet arrangements

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we did not have any "off-balance sheet arrangements" (as that term is defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K).

Recent accounting pronouncements

Management has considered all recent accounting pronouncements issued since the last audit of our financial statements. The Company's management believes that these recent pronouncements will not have a material effect on the Company's financial statements.
