Liquidity

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q have been prepared in conformity with GAAP, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern and realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business and do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of any uncertainties related to our going concern assessment. The carrying amounts of assets and liabilities presented in the financial statements do not necessarily purport to represent realizable or settlement values. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

The Company incurred a loss from operations of approximately $2.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $19.3 million. The Company expects to continue incurring losses for the foreseeable future but we anticipate that our current cash and cash equivalents and additional cash to be generated from operations will be sufficient to cover our projected operating expenses for the foreseeable future. Management does not believe there are any substantial doubts about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within a year and a day from the issuance of these unaudited consolidated financial statements.

Factors Affecting Our Performance

We believe the following factors affect our performance:

Retail: We believe the operating performance of our retail stores will affect our revenue and financial performance. The Company has four natural and organic groceries and dietary supplement stores located in Florida, as well as two located in New York. As of April 2022, the Company assigned the lease of its remaining retail vape store due to adverse industry trends and increasing federal and state regulations that, if implemented, may negatively impact future retail revenues. All of the Company's other vape stores had been either closed or had its assets sold from December 2021 to April 2022. This will allow the Company to focus on developing wholesale business and sales through online platform.

Increased Competition: Food retail is a large and competitive industry. Our competition varies and includes national, regional, and local conventional supermarkets, national superstores, alternative food retailers, natural foods stores, smaller specialty stores, and farmers' markets. In addition, we compete with restaurants and other dining options in the food-at-home and food-away-from-home markets. The opening and closing of competitive stores, as well as restaurants and other dining options, in regions where we operate will affect our results. In addition, changing consumer preferences with respect to food choices and to dining out or at home can impact us. We also expect increased product supply and downward pressure on prices to continue and impact our operating results in the future.

Our Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic: We are proud to provide our guests with high quality, fresh foods and restaurant quality meals, delivered with impeccable service in an exceptionally clean and well-stocked store. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to carefully monitor and adjust our safety protocols while following public health guideline and local ordinances. We have maintained many of the protocols established at the beginning of the pandemic to keep our team members and guests safe. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many risks and challenges that we must manage. While we have experienced many challenges, including but not limited to, product shortages, staffing difficulties, and evolving customer shopping behaviors, our focus remains on both offering our customers a high quality service experience and supporting our essential front-line team members. Though we have successfully managed these challenges to date, our operations and financial condition could still be negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.

                               $ (7,172,984)   $  26,413,409


Our net cash used in operating activities of approximately $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 resulted from a net loss of $2.7 million, offset by a non-cash adjustment of $0.9 million and a net cash provided of $0.1 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities. Our net cash used in operating activities of $1.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 resulted from a net loss of $0.5 million and a net cash usage of $0.8 million from changes in operating assets and liabilities, offset by a non-cash adjustment of $0.2 million.

The net cash used in investing activities of $5.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 resulted from the acquisition of Mother Earth's Storehouse, collection on a note receivable, and purchases of property and equipment. The net cash used in investing activities of $14,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 resulted from the collection of a note receivable, and purchases of property and equipment.

The net cash provided by financing activities of $34,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 is due to proceeds received from the line of credit. The net cash provided by financing activities of $27.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 is due to proceeds received from the stock rights offering, partially offset by a principal payment of $2.0 million on the line of credit.

At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we did not have any material financial guarantees or other contractual commitments with vendors that are reasonably likely to have an adverse effect on liquidity.

Our cash balances are kept liquid to support our growing acquisition and infrastructure needs for operational expansion. Most of our cash and cash equivalents are concentrated in one financial institution and are generally in excess of the FDIC insurance limit. The Company has not experienced any losses on its cash and cash equivalents. The following table presents the Company's cash position as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.


                             June 30, 2022     December 31, 2021
Cash                       $    19,323,420   $        26,496,404

Percentage of total assets          57.12%                76.93%


The Company reported a net loss of $2.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The Company also had positive working capital of $19.0 million. The Company expects to continue incurring losses for the foreseeable future but we do not believe there are any substantial doubts about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to exercise considerable judgment with respect to establishing sound accounting policies and in making estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of our assets and liabilities, our recognition of revenues and expenses, and disclosure of commitments and contingencies at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements.

We base our estimates on our historical experience, knowledge of our business and industry, current and expected economic conditions, the attributes of our products, the regulatory environment, and in certain cases, the results of outside appraisals. We periodically re-evaluate our estimates and assumptions with respect to these judgments and modify our approach when circumstances indicate that modifications are necessary. These estimates and assumptions form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.

While we believe that the factors we evaluate provide us with a meaningful basis for establishing and applying sound accounting policies, we cannot guarantee that the results will always be accurate. Since the determination of these estimates requires the exercise of judgment, actual results could differ from such estimates.

There have been no material changes to the Company's critical accounting policies and estimates as compared to the critical accounting policies and estimates described in the 2021 Annual Report, which we believe are the most critical to our business and the understanding of our results of operations and affect the more significant judgments and estimates that we use in the preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Seasonality

We do not consider our business to be seasonal.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This report includes forward-looking statements including statements regarding retail expansion, the future demand for our products, the transition to vaporizer and other products, competition, the adequacy of our cash resources and our authorized Common Stock, and our continued ability to raise capital.

The words "believe," "may," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "should," "plan," "could," "target," "potential," "is likely," "will," "expect" and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs.

The results anticipated by any or all of these forward-looking statements might not occur. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements include our future common stock price, the timing of future Series D preferred stock exercises and stock sales, customer acceptance of our products, and proposed federal and state regulation. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new information, future events or otherwise.
