FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may be “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that express our intentions, beliefs, expectations, strategies, predictions or any other statements relating to our future activities or other future events or conditions. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “believe,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” and “would.” These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our business based in part on assumptions made by management. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may, and are likely to, differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements due to numerous factors, including those set forth in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, and our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and we disclaim any obligation to publicly update or release any revisions to these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as required by applicable law.

Iconic Brands, Inc. and Subsidiaries

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020

 (Unaudited)

 

1. ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

Iconic Brands, Inc., formerly Paw Spa, Inc. (“Iconic”), was incorporated in the State of Nevada on October 21, 2005. Effective December 31, 2016, Iconic closed on a May 15, 2015 agreement to acquire a 51% interest in BiVi LLC (“BiVi”), the brand owner of “BiVi 100 percent Sicilian Vodka,” and closed on a December 13, 2016 agreement to acquire a 51% interest in Bellissima Spirits LLC (“Bellissima”), the brand owner of Bellissima sparkling wines. These transactions involved entities under common control of Iconic's chief executive officer at such time and represented a change in reporting entity. The financial statements of Iconic have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the operations at BiVi and Bellissima from their inception.

 

BiVi was organized in Nevada on May 4, 2015. Bellissima was organized in Nevada on November 23, 2015.

 

Effective May 9, 2019, Iconic closed on a Share Exchange Agreement to acquire a 51% interest in Green Grow Farms, Inc. (“Green Grow”), an entity organized on February 28, 2019, to grow hemp for CBD extraction. Effective December 31, 2019, Iconic sold its 51% interest in Green Grow Farms, Inc. to Can B Corp (see Note 3).

 

On July 26, 2021, Iconic acquired 100% TopPop LLC (“TopPop”). TopPop is organized as a limited liability company in the State of New Jersey on September 5, 2019. TopPop’s primary operation is the manufacture and packaging of single-serve, shelf-stable, ready-to-freeze ice pops, both alcohols infused and non-alcoholic. TopPop began operations in December 2019 (See note 4).

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

(a) Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Iconic, its two 51% owned subsidiaries, BiVi and Bellissima, and its wholly owned subsidiaries, United Spirits, Inc. (see Note 5) and TopPop LLC (see Note 4) (collectively, the “Company”). All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

(b) Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

(c) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Generally accepted accounting principles require disclosing the fair value of financial instruments to the extent practicable for financial instruments which are recognized or unrecognized in the balance sheet. The fair value of the financial instruments disclosed herein is not necessarily representative of the amount that could be realized or settled, nor does the fair value amount consider the tax consequences of realization or settlement.

 

In assessing the fair value of financial instruments, the Company uses a variety of methods and assumptions, which are based on estimates of market conditions and risks existing at the time. For certain instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and notes payable, it was estimated that the carrying amount approximated fair value because of the short maturities of these instruments.

 

 
F-7

Table of Contents

 

(d) Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all liquid investments purchased with original maturities of ninety days or less to be cash equivalents.

 

(e) Accounts Receivable, Net of Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

The Company extends unsecured credit to customers in the ordinary course of business but mitigates risk by performing credit checks and by actively pursuing past due accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts is based on customer historical experience and the aging of the related accounts receivable. At September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the allowance for doubtful accounts was $84,019 and $83,617, respectively.

 

(f) Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market, with due consideration given to obsolescence and to slow moving items. Inventories at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 consists of cases of BiVi Vodka and cases of Bellissima sparkling wines purchased from our Italian suppliers and cases of alcoholic beverages and packaging materials relating to our Hooters line of products introduced in August 2019. TopPop inventory consists of packing materials to be in used in the production.

 

(g) Revenue Recognition

 

It is the Company’s policy that revenues from product sales are recognized in accordance with ASC 606 “Revenue Recognition.” Five basic steps must be followed before revenue can be recognized; (1) Identifying the contract(s) with a customer that creates enforceable rights and obligations; (2) Identifying the performance obligations in the contract, such as promising to transfer goods or services to a customer; (3) Determining the transaction price, meaning the amount of consideration in a contract to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring promised goods or services to a customer; (4) Allocating the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract, which requires the company to allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation on the basis of the relative standalone selling prices of each distinct good or services promised in the contract; and (5) Recognizing revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation by transferring a promised good or service to a customer. The amount of revenue recognized is the amount allocated to the satisfied performance obligation. Adoption of ASC 606 has not changed the timing and nature of the Company’s revenue recognition and there has been no material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

 

Our revenue (referred to in our financial statements as “sales”) consists primarily of the sale of wine and spirits imported for cash or otherwise agreed-upon credit terms along with ready to freeze products manufactured by us. Our customers consist primarily of retailers. Our revenue generating activities have a single performance obligation and are recognized at the point in time when control transfers and our obligation has been fulfilled, which is when the related goods are shipped or delivered to the customer, depending upon the method of distribution, and shipping terms. We have elected to treat shipping as a fulfillment activity. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for the sale of our product. The Company has no obligation to accept the return of products sold other than for replacement of damaged products. Other than quantity price discounts negotiated with customers prior to billing and delivery (which are reflected as a reduction in sales), the Company does not offer any sales incentives or other rebate arrangements to customers.  Revenue associated with manufacturing and packaging business is recognized at a point in time when obligations under the terms of a contact with a customer are satisfied.

  

(h) Shipping and Handling Costs

 

Shipping and handling costs to deliver product to customers are reported as operating expenses in the accompanying statements of operations. Shipping and handling costs to purchase inventory are capitalized and expensed to cost of sales when revenue is recognized on the sale of product to customers.

 

(i) Stock-Based Compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for at fair value in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation”. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, stock-based compensation was $1,238,502 and $537,800, respectively.

 

 
F-8

Table of Contents

 

(j) Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for under the assets and liability method. Current income taxes are provided in accordance with the laws of the respective taxing authorities. Deferred income taxes are provided for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is not more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized.

 

(k) Net Income (Loss) per Share

 

Basic net income (loss) per common share is computed on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period of the financial statements.

 

Diluted net income (loss) per common share is computed on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive securities (such as stock options, warrants, and convertible securities) outstanding. Dilutive securities having an anti-dilutive effect on diluted net income (loss) per share are excluded from the calculation.

 

(l) Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Effective January 1, 2019, we adopted ASU 2016-2 (Topic 842) which establishes a new lease accounting model for lessees. Under the new guidance, lessees are required to recognize right of use assets and liabilities for most leases having terms of 12 months or more. We adopted this new accounting guidance using the effective date transition method, which permits entities to apply the new lease standards using a modified retrospective transition approach at the date of adoption. As such, historical periods were continued to be measured and presented under the previous guidance while current and future periods are subject to this new accounting guidance.

 

Certain other accounting pronouncements have been issued by the FASB and other standard setting organizations which are not yet effective and have not yet been adopted by the Company. The impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations from adoption of these standards is not expected to be material.

 

(m) Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has sustained significant net losses which have resulted in an accumulated deficit at September 30, 2021 of $32,497,887 and has experienced periodic cash flow difficulties, all of which raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining additional working capital and attaining profitable operations. The management of the Company has developed a strategy which it believes will accomplish these objectives and which will enable the Company to continue operations for the coming year. However, there is no assurance that these objectives will be met. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

3. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS AND LOSS ON INVESTMENT IN AND RECEIVABLE FROM CAN B CORP.

 

Effective December 31, 2019, the Company sold its 51% equity interest in Green Grow Farms, Inc. (“Green Grow”) to Can B Corp. in exchange for 37,500,000 shares of Can B Corp. common stock and a Can B Corp. obligation to issue additional shares (“Additional Purchases Shares”) of Can B Corp. common stock to the Company on June 30, 2020 in such number so that the aggregate value of the aggregate shares issued to the Company equaled $1,000,000. We acquired this equity interest on May 9, 2019 in exchange for a $200,000 note payable to NY Farms Group Inc. and 2,000,000 shares of Company common stock valued at $1,250,000.

 

 
F-9

Table of Contents

 

Effective March 6, 2020, CANB effected a 1 share for 300 shares reverse stock split resulting in a reduction of the number of the Company’s shares of CANB common stock from 37,500,000 shares to 125,000 shares. On July 8, 2020, CANB delivered 418,714 additional shares of CANB common stock required under the December 31, 2019 agreement. The fair value of the 543,714 shares of CANB common stock at June 30, 2020 was $1,073,835 and the Company recognized an unrealized gain of $73,835 in the quarterly period ended June 30, 2020.

 

On July 29, 2020, the Company executed an exchange agreement with CANB and delivered the 543,714 shares of CANB common stock to CANB in exchange for CANB’s delivery of 1,000,000 shares of common stock to the Company. The July 29, 2020 closing price of CANB common stock was $0.95 per share. In the balance sheet as of September 30, 2020, the Company recorded treasury stock in the amount of $516,528. The Company recognized a loss of $557,307 from the Company’s investment in CANB common stock in the quarterly period ended September 30, 2020.

 

4. ACQUISITION OF TOPPOP

 

On July 26, 2021, the Company entered into an acquisition agreement (the “TopPop Acquisition Agreement”) with TopPop, and each of FrutaPop LLC (“Frutapop”), Innoaccel Investments LLC (“Innoaccel”) and Thomas Martin (“Martin” and, together with Frutapop and Innoaccel, the “TopPop Members”), pursuant to which the TopPop Members sold to the Company and the Company acquired, all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of TopPop.

 

TopPop is a brand owner and contract manufacturing and packaging company specializing in flexible packaging solutions in the food, beverage and health categories. Its first branded and contract products are alcohol-infused ice pops. Its manufacturing facility in Marlton, New Jersey is registered by the Federal Drug Administration and holds a Safe Quality Food certification.

 

Upon consummation of the acquisition contemplated by the TopPop Acquisition Agreement, the TopPop Members received, in the aggregate: (a) $3,995,500 in cash by transfer of immediately available funds, (b) 26,009,600shares of Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), which shares were valued in the aggregate at $10,143,744, or $0.39 per share, (c) $5,042,467 aggregate principal amount of promissory notes of the Company (the “Promissory Notes”) and (d) future additional cash payments as earnout consideration (the “Total Consideration”). The earn-out payments, if any, will be made (i) following the 12-month period commencing on August 1, 2021 (the “First Year”), in an amount (the “First Year Earn-out Amount”) equal to each TopPop Member’s pro rata portion of the excess, if any, of: (A) 1.96 times TopPop’s EBITDA for the First Year over (B) the aggregate amount of the Promissory Notes repaid in cash during the First Year; provided, however, no First Year Earn-out Amount shall be payable if (i)(A) does not exceed (i)(B); and (ii) following the 12-month period commencing on August 1, 2022 (the “Second Year”), in an amount (the “Second Year Earn-out Amount”) equal to each TopPop Member’s pro rata portion of the excess, if any, of: (A) 1.96 times TopPop’s EBITDA for the Second Year over (B) the aggregate amount of the Promissory Notes repaid in cash during the Second Year; provided, however, no Second Year Earn-out Amount shall be payable if (ii)(A) does not exceed (ii)(B). The earn-out payments shall be made, at the election of each TopPop Member, in cash or in shares of Common Stock or a combination thereof, less any reserve for possible indemnification payments, provided that not less than 45% of the value of each earn-out payment shall be paid in Common Stock. If paid in shares of Common Stock, such shares shall be valued at the then-prevailing market rate.

 

The Promissory Notes bear interest at the rate of 10% per annum and mature on July 26, 2022. The Promissory Notes are not subject to pre-payment penalties; however, the Company may not pre-pay any amount on any Promissory Note without pre-paying a pro-rata portion of all Promissory Notes. In connection with the Promissory Notes, the Company granted to the TopPop Members a security interest in all of the Company’s membership interests of TopPop pursuant to certain pledge agreements (the “Pledge Agreements”) with each of the TopPop Members, each dated July 26, 2021. The Promissory Notes are not convertible into equity securities of the Company.

 

The Company accounted for the Acquisition of TopPop as a business combination using the purchase method of accounting as prescribed in Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”) and ASC 820 – Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”). In accordance with ASC 805 and ASC 820, we used our best estimates and assumptions to accurately assign fair value to the tangible assets acquired, identifiable intangible assets and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition dates. Goodwill as of the acquisition date is measured as the excess of purchase consideration over the fair value of tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed.

9. CAPITAL STOCK

 

Preferred Stock

 

The one share of Series A Preferred Stock, which was issued to Richard DeCicco on September 10, 2009, entitles the holder to two votes for every share of Common Stock Deemed Outstanding and has no conversion or dividend rights.

 

On July 26, 2021, the Company entered into a securities exchange agreement dated as of July 26, 2021 (the “Series A Preferred Exchange Agreement”), with Mr. Richard DeCicco, who, at the time of execution and delivery of such agreement, was the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, chairman of the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) and the holder of the Company’s one issued and outstanding share of Series A Preferred Stock. Pursuant to the Series A Preferred Exchange Agreement, Mr. DeCicco exchanged his one share of Series A Preferred Stock for 25,600,000 shares of Common Stock. Upon such exchange, the Series A Preferred Stock, which previously gave Mr. DeCicco two votes for every one vote of the Company’s outstanding voting securities, was cancelled and all contractual (or similar) rights, preferences and obligations relating to such Series A Preferred Stock became null and void and of no further effect whatsoever.

Based on management’s present assessment, the Company has not yet determined that a deferred tax asset attributable to the future utilization of the net operating loss carryforward as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 will be realized. Accordingly, the Company has maintained a 100% valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset in the financial statements at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The Company will continue to review this valuation allowance and make adjustments as appropriate. 

 

Current United States income tax laws limit the amount of loss available to be offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs. Therefore, the amount available to offset future taxable income may be limited.

 

All tax years remain subject to examination by major taxing jurisdictions.
