NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION, NATURE OF BUSINESS AND GOING CONCERN

 

(A) Description of Business

 

On May 30, 2006, Basanite, Inc. was organized as a Nevada corporation. Basanite and its wholly owned subsidiaries are herein referred to as the "Company", “we”, “our”, or “us”. Currently based in Pompano Beach, Florida, the Company intends to manufacture concrete-reinforcing products made from basalt fiber reinforced polymers (“BFRP”), such as its primary product BasaFlex. This UV-stable, chemical, acid and moisture resistant material is sustainable and environmentally friendly and has been engineered to replace steel as it never rusts, therefore, addressing the industry’s current corrosion issues.

 

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary created in 2018, Basanite Industries, LLC (“BI”) manufactures BasaFlex™, a basalt fiber reinforced polymer rebar. BFRP rebar is a stronger, lighter, sustainable, non-conductive and non-corrosive alternative for traditional steel rebar and wire mesh. BI leases a fully permitted and Underwriters Laboratories (“UL”) approved 36,900 square foot facility located in Pompano Beach, Florida, equipped with five customized Pultrusion machines. Each machine has two linear production lines (a total capacity of 10 manufacturing lines). BI’s operations team is currently in the processes of optimizing and scaling the manufacturing plant to produce 11,000 to 17,000 linear feet of BFRP rebar per line, per day, depending on the product mix. BI’s own fully equipped test lab is utilized to evaluate, validate and verify each product’s performance attributes.

 

The manufacture of concrete reinforcement products made from continuous basalt fiber creates substantial benefits for the construction industry, including but not limited to, the following:

 

BasaFlex™ never rusts – steel reinforcement products rust, causing time and repair costs down the road;
BasaFlex™ is sustainable; with a longer lifecycle – production of our products results in exceptionally low carbon footprint when compared with steel. The lack of corrosion allows the “lifespan” of concrete products to be significantly longer; and
BasaFlex™ has a lower final, in place cost – the physical nature of our products relative to steel (4X lighter, easily transportable, “coil-able”, safer and easier to use) reduces the all-in cost of reinforcement when all factors are considered.

 

(B) Liquidity and Management Plans

 

Since inception, the Company has incurred net operating losses and used cash in operations. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, the Company reported:

 

an accumulated deficit of $34,315,592 and $29,643,387;
a working capital deficiency of $2,615,036 and $1,901,875; and
cash used in operations of $920,915 and $2,799,499.

 

Losses have principally occurred as a result of the substantial resources required for product research and development and for marketing of the Company's products; including the general and administrative expenses associated with the organization.

 

At March 31, 2021, the Company had cash of $355,759 compared to $259,505 at December 31, 2020.

BASANITE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2021 AND 2020

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION, NATURE OF BUSINESS AND GOING CONCERN (CONTINUED)

 

We have historically satisfied our working capital requirements through the sale of restricted common stock and the issuance of warrants and promissory notes. Until we are able to internally generate positive cash flow, we will attempt to fund working capital requirements through third party financing, including through private placement of our securities as well as bridge loan arrangements. However, a number of factors continue to hinder the Company’s ability to attract new capital investment. We cannot provide any assurances that the required capital will be obtained or that the terms of such required capital may be acceptable to us. If we are unable to obtain adequate financing, we may reduce our operating activities to reduce our cash use until sufficient funding is secured.

 

These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effect on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of these uncertainties. Management believes that the actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plan provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

(A) Use of Estimates in Financial Statements

 

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

 

Stock-based compensation and stock awards related to convertible debt instruments are recognized based on the fair value of the awards granted. The fair value of each award or conversion feature is typically estimated on the grant date using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The Black-Scholes pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the fair value of the underlying common stock, the expected term of the option, the expected volatility of the price of our common stock, risk-free interest rates and the expected dividend yield of our common stock. The assumptions used to determine the fair value of the stock awards represent management’s best estimates. These estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. 

 

(B) Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Basanite, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Basanite Industries, LLC and Basalt America, LLC. All intercompany balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

(C) Cash

 

The Company considers all highly liquid temporary cash instruments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company places its cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash on deposit with financial institutions in the United States, which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company ("FDIC") up to $250,000. The Company's credit risk in the event of failure of these financial institutions is represented by the difference between the FDIC limit and the total amounts on deposit. Management monitors the financial institutions credit worthiness in conjunction with balances on deposit to minimize risk. The Company from time to time may have amounts on deposit in excess of the insured limits.

The Company’s inventories consist of raw materials, work in process and finished goods, both purchased and manufactured. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out basis. Raw materials inventory consists primarily of basalt fiber and other necessary elements to produce the basalt rebar. On a quarterly basis, the Company analyzes its inventory levels and records allowances for inventory that has become obsolete and inventory that has a cost basis in excess of the expected net realizable value.

 

The Company’s inventory at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was comprised of:

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

(G) Loss Per Share

 

The basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares during the period. The diluted loss per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net loss by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted for any potentially dilutive debt or equity.

 

The following are potentially dilutive shares not included in the loss per share computation:

Convertible shares    165,114,331    112,233,406 
     222,537,209    155,696,284 

 

(H) Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company recognizes compensation costs to employees under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. Under FASB ASC Topic 718, companies are required to measure the compensation costs of share-based compensation arrangements based on the grant-date fair value and recognize the costs in the financial statements over the period during which employees are required to provide services. Share based compensation arrangements include stock options, restricted share plans, performance-based awards, share appreciation rights and employee share purchase plans. As such, compensation cost is measured on the date of grant at their fair value. Such compensation amounts, if any, are amortized over the respective vesting periods of the grant.

 

The Company entered into a consulting agreement on July 9, 2020 for services in exchange for restricted common stock as compensation for the consulting services. The term of the agreement is for six months with the option for renewal quarterly. Upon execution of the agreement, 600,000 shares were due within 5 days of execution.

NOTE 3 – RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

There are several new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB. Each of these pronouncements, as applicable, has been or will be adopted by the Company. Management does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position or operating results, except as disclosed.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06, Debt – Debt with Conversion and other Options (Subtopic 70-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s instruments by removing major separation models required under current accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). ASU 2020-06 removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exceptions and also simplifies the diluted earnings per share calculation in certain areas. The standard is effective for public business entities, excluding entities eligible to be smaller reporting companies as defined by the SEC, for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. For all other entities, the standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 12, 2023. Early adoption is permitted but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and adoption must be as of the beginning of the Company’s annual fiscal year. The standard was adopted on January 1, 2021. By no longer recording embedded conversion features separately from the convertible debt instrument, and instead as a single liability, the Company’s financial statements will reflect a more simplified view of convertible debt instruments and cash interest expense that is more relevant than an imputed interest expense that results from the separation of conversion features previously required by U.S. GAAP. There was no material effect on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2021.

 

NOTE 4 – OPERATING LEASE

 

On January 18, 2019, the Company entered into an agreement to lease approximately 25,470 square feet of office and manufacturing space in Pompano Beach, Florida through March 2024. On March 25, 2019, the Company entered into an amendment to the agreement to increase the square footage of leased premises to 36,900 square feet, increasing the Company’s base rent obligation to be approximately $33,825 per month for one year and nine months, and increasing annually at a rate of three percent for the remainder of the lease term.

 

The right-of-use asset is composed of the sum of all remaining lease payments plus any initial direct cost and is amortized over the life of the expected lease term. For the expected term of the lease, the Company used the initial term of the five-year lease. If the Company does elect to exercise its option to extend the lease for another five years, that election will be treated as a lease modification and the lease will be reviewed for remeasurement.

 

The future minimum lease payments to be made under the operating lease as of March 31, 2021 are:

 

2021   $313,558 
2022    427,484 
2023    440,308 
2024    110,884 
Total minimum lease payments    1,292,234 
Discount    (259,780)

NOTE 4 – OPERATING LEASE (CONTINUED)

 

Operating lease liabilities are based on the net present value of the remaining lease payments over the remaining lease term.

As of March 31, 2021, the weighted-average remaining lease term is 3 years and the weighted-average discount rate used to determine the operating lease liability was 15.0%. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company expensed $106,919 and $107,589, respectively, for rent.

NOTE 6 – NOTES PAYABLE – CONVERTIBLE – RELATED PARTY (CONTINUED)

 

On August 3, 2020, the Company issued a secured convertible promissory note to certain investors in exchange for $1,000,000 bearing an interest rate of 20% per annum and payable in six months. The holder may convert the unpaid principal balance of the note into restricted common stock, of the Company at the conversion rate equal to the per share cash price paid for the shares by any third-party investor(s) with total proceeds to the Company of not less than $500,000 provided, however, in no event shall the conversion price ever be less than $0.01 per share. This note contains a negative covenant that requires the Company to obtain consent prior to incurring any additional equity or debt investments and is secured by all of the assets of the Company. The Richard A. LoRicco Sr. and Lucille M. LoRicco Irrevocable Insurance Trust DTD 4/28/95, Louis Demaio as Trustee (the “Trust”) is the holder of $750,000 of the principal amount of this note. The Trust was created by Richard A. LoRicco Sr. and Lucille M. LoRicco, who were the parents of Ronald J. LoRicco Sr., one of the members of the Company’s Board of Directors and is maintained by an independent trustee. Ronald J. LoRicco Sr. does not have voting or investment control of or power over the Trust but is an anticipated, partial beneficiary of the Trust. On February 12, 2021, the Company exchanged the original debt for the newly issued an amended and restated secured convertible promissory note to certain investors with a new principal balance of $1,610,005 bearing an interest rate of 20% per annum and fully payable in three months. This was accounted for as debt extinguishment and the new promissory note was recorded at fair value in accordance with ASC 470 “Debt”. The original principal of $1,000,000 and accrued interest of $110,005 calculated as of the date of amendment and restatement along with an additional advance of $500,000 determined the principal amount of the new note. In consideration of the additional advance and the extension of the maturity date of the original note, the Company issued to the noteholders 15,000,000 five-year common stock warrants with an exercise price of $0.20. The issuance of the warrants for the extension generated a loss on extinguishment of $3,686,136 for the fair value of the warrants issued. If prior to the maturity date, the Company consummates financing with proceeds of not less than $3,000,000, the noteholders, at their sole discretion, may elect to extend the maturity date by an additional six months such that the maturity date shall then be November 12, 2021. On May 12, 2021, the Company extended the debt and newly issued an amended and restated secured convertible promissory note to certain investors with a new principal balance of $1,689,746 bearing an interest rate of 20% per annum and fully payable in nine months. The original principal of $1,610,005 and accrued interest of $79,742 calculated as of the date of amendment and restatement determined the principal amount of the new note. In consideration of the additional advance and the extension of the maturity date of the original note, the Company issued to the noteholders 7,500,000 five-year common stock warrants with an exercise price of $0.35.

 

Interest expense for the Company’s convertible notes payable – related parties was $66,916 and $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively. Accrued interest for the Company’s convertible notes payable – related parties at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was $41,184 and $86,574, respectively, and is included in accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty about the severity and duration associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company considered furloughing or eliminating employees and taking other measures to reduce operating costs until there is more certainty about the short-term and long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation’s economy and the Company’s business. On May 1, 2020, the Company entered a promissory note agreement with its bank in exchange for $123,318 bearing an interest rate of 1.0% per annum. The loan was made pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the CARES Act after receiving confirmation from the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act requires that the funds be used to maintain the current number of employees as well as cover payroll-related costs, monthly mortgage or rent payments and utilities and not more than 40% can be expended on non-payroll-related costs. On January 4, 2021, the Small Business Administration forgave the promissory note of $123,318 and accrued interest of $825 issued under the Paycheck Protection Program.

Legal Matters

 

In the ordinary course of operations, the Company may become a party to legal proceedings. Based upon information currently available, management believes that such legal proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, cash flows, or results of operations except as provided below.

 

CalSTRS Judgement

 

On March 31, 2014, the Company received a “Notice of Default” letter from legal counsel representing the California State Teachers Retirement System (“CalSTRS”) (the landlord for the Company’s office space) alerting that the Company was in default of its lease for failure to pay monthly rent for the office space located at 2400 East Commercial Boulevard, Suite 612, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. The letter demanded immediate payment of $41,937 for rent past due as of April 1, 2014. The Company had indicated in writing its intention to cooperate with the landlord while trying to resolve the matter. On February 11, 2015, the landlord, through its attorneys, filed a motion for summary judgment. The motion asked for $376,424 in unpaid rent, recovery of abated rents and tenant improvements and $12,442 in attorney’s costs incurred by the landlord. On April 22, 2015, the motion for unpaid rent, recovery of abated rents and tenant improvements and attorney’s costs was granted by the Circuit Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County and the Company has reserved the entire judgement of $388,866. The total amount is accruing interest at the statutory rate of 4.75%. The accrued interest on the judgement at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 is $109,815 and $105,260, respectively.

 

RAW Materials Litigation

 

On or about August 28, 2018, Raw Energy Materials Corp. filed an action for declaratory relief and breach of contract in Broward County, Florida, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, titled Raw Energy Materials Corp. v. Rockstar Acquisitions, LLC, Paymeon, Inc. (now Basanite, Inc.), and Basalt America, LLC, CASE NO.: CACE 18-020596. An Amended Complaint was filed on or about December 19, 2018 adding Basanite Industries, LLC as a defendant, as well as an alleged claim under Florida Statute Section 501.201 and for injunction. The Company filed and has pending an amended counterclaim for breach of contract, fraud and civil conspiracy against Raw Energy affiliates, including Don Smith, Elina Jenkins, Global Energy Sciences, LLC, Yellow Turtle Design, LLC, as well as former business affiliates/associates to Don Smith, Richard Laurin and Robert Ludwig. The nature of the dispute is based on representations (or misrepresentations) the Company alleges were made to it, as well as breaches of the terms of a licensing agreement, related consulting and other agreements, and failures and refusals of plaintiff and Don Smith related entities to deliver equipment/machinery and goods paid for by the Company or its affiliates. As it became apparent that the subject license agreement was effectively worthless and moot to the Company, and the purported and promised trade secrets and intellectual property were essentially non-existent, the Company and Plaintiff agree to an order terminating that license agreement, which resulted in the agreed order dated January 28, 2019.

 

A mediation was scheduled on March 4, 2021 which resulted in an impasse. Negotiations were continued, and on April 14, 2021, Basanite, Inc. entered into a settlement and release agreement with RAW, LLC (“RAW”), Donald R. Smith, YellowTurtle Design LLC (“YellowTurtle”) and Elina B. Jenkins among others. The settlement agreement provides for, among other things, the following: (i) a dismissal of the legal action as to the above-referenced parties and their owners, agents, affiliated companies, successors and assigns, having Case Number 18-020596 (21) in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court in and for Broward County, Florida (the “Litigation”) upon the Company’s timely purchase of the shares as set forth in the next paragraph below and (ii) mutual general releases for the above-referenced parties relating to the Litigation upon the Company’s timely purchase of the shares as set forth in the next paragraph below.

Simultaneously with the execution of the settlement agreement settling the litigation in full and release of all claims among the parties, the Company entered into stock purchase agreements with both RAW and YellowTurtle to repurchase the 10,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock held by RAW for $1,212,121 and the 6,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock held by YellowTurtle for $787,879, or an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. If the purchase price is not paid on or before May 17, 2021, the purchase agreements and settlement agreement between the parties hereto shall become null and void, while RAW and YellowTurtle shall retain all of their above-referenced shares of common stock in the Company. On May 17, 2021, the settlement shares were purchased by a group of related and non-related investors which resulted in the closing of this legal action.

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Basanite and its wholly owned subsidiaries are herein referred to as the "Company", “we”, “our”, or “us”.

 

Overview

 

This overview provides a high-level discussion of our operating results and some of the trends that affect our business. We believe that an understanding of these trends is important to understand our financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. This summary is not intended to be exhaustive, nor is it intended to be a substitute for the detailed discussion and analysis provided elsewhere in this report, and our audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the Annual Report in Form-10-K for the period ended December 31, 2020 and filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021.

 

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Basanite Industries, LLC (“BI”) manufactures BasaFlex™, a basalt fiber reinforced polymer (“BFRP”) rebar. BFRP rebar is a stronger, lighter, sustainable, non-conductive and non-corrosive alternative for traditional steel rebar and wire mesh. BI leases a fully permitted and Underwriters Laboratories (“UL”) approved 36,900 square foot facility located in Pompano Beach, Florida, equipped with five customized Pultrusion machines. Each machine has two linear production lines (a total capacity of 10 manufacturing lines). BI’s operations team is currently in the processes of optimizing and scaling the manufacturing plant to produce 11,000 to 17,000 linear feet of BFRP rebar per line, per day, depending on the product mix. BI’s own fully equipped Test Lab is utilized to evaluate, validate and verify each product’s performance attributes.

 

The manufacture of concrete reinforcement products made from continuous basalt fiber creates substantial benefits for the construction industry, including but not limited to, the following:

 

BasaFlex™ never rusts – steel reinforcement products rust, causing time and repair costs down the road;
BasaFlex™ is sustainable; with a longer lifecycle – production of our products results in exceptionally low carbon footprint when compared with steel. The lack of corrosion allows the “lifespan” of concrete products to be significantly longer; and
BasaFlex™ has a lower final, in place cost – the physical nature of our products relative to steel (4X lighter, easily transportable, “coil-able”, safer and easier to use) reduces the all-in cost of reinforcement when all factors are considered.

We believe that macroeconomic factors are pressuring the construction industry to consider the use of alternative reinforcement materials for the following reasons: the increasing need for global infrastructure repair; recent design trends towards increasing the lifespan of projects and materials; and increasing consideration of the long-term costs and environmental impacts of material selections. We believe we are well positioned to benefit from this renewed focus, although it is difficult to determine at this point the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic to the construction industry.

 

Basanite Industries submitted its first round of BasaFlex™ (Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer) rebar products to the Structures and Materials Department of the University of Miami (UM), Miami, Florida, an industry accredited independent testing laboratory, to obtain a Certified Test Report which allows Basanite to participate in approved fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) applications, such as precast, architectural, flatwork and other non-structural engineered applications. On May 29th, 2020, a Certified Test Report was submitted to Basanite for engineering use. Basanite Industries has submitted a second round of BasaFlex™ rebars for additional testing, that will further certify and qualify BasaFlex™ for Federal and state government applications, to the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Basanite expects the results to be superior to the first round of testing.

 

In the middle of August of 2020, Basanite began initial manufacturing operations and commenced the manufacture of its initial stock of inventory of BasaFlex™, its proprietary basalt FRP. Also, during this timeframe, the Company filled key positions within its production facility and reached its primary goal of scaling to full capacity single shift operations. Basanite has begun selling across its complete product line and is currently working on securing larger orders for next year. The Company has also been preparing multiple test articles for customers who are now conducting testing for specific applications. Based on market demand, and subject to success in its fundraising efforts, Basanite is now working towards beginning two shift operations during the second quarter of 2021.

 

Management has also been recruiting key positions in the Company, focused initially on product development; driving sales growth; and expanding the Company’s market presence. Our hiring focused on key areas of excellence, including quality assurance; operations and other technical resources; engineering; and sales and marketing. Basanite has completed its initial hiring plan of recruiting and hiring the following key personnel for leadership positions, with over 140 years of industry experience combined:

 

  Vesna Stanic, PhD Director of Quality Assurance
  Brian Metrocavage Director of Technical Sales
  Bob Robbins Director of Business Development
  Jesus Escalona Structural / Civil Engineer
  Eduardo Acosta Structural / Civil Engineer
  Jorge Angulo Director of Operations

 

In 2020, Basanite contracted with an independent software company to develop BasaPro™, a design software specifically for use with BasaFlex™. This development effort has been completed and the software is operational. This allows both Basanite’s engineers and Basanite customer’s engineers to easily convert engineering designs for the use of BasaFlex™ in place of steel rebar in all types of concrete applications. It allows for both the conversion to BasaFlex™ from steel in existing concrete designs and, for original designs using BasaFlex™, and is based upon the application of ACI 440 and ACI 318 industry standards. The software is capable of showing all calculations and pictorial design work in conjunction with applicable building codes. This means Basanite can now communicate with the design community in their own language.

 

Basanite continues to receive multiple inquiries from a range of customers for its products, indicating very high levels of market interest for BasaFlex™. A significant number of these inquiries are for very large potential orders for new, multi-year construction projects. Based on our current manufacturing capacity, a number of these orders exceed our capability to deliver within the customer’s requested timeframe, and largely because of this, there is no guarantee that these orders will actually be received. To satisfy the high level of market interest, in particular with these larger customers, Basanite is planning to accelerate the expansion of the Pompano Beach facility. Our initial goal is to expand to 5 times our current capacity by Q3 of 2021, and ultimately to 7+ times our current capacity by the beginning of 2022. To accomplish this goal, Basanite has developed customized pultrusion equipment with significantly increased capacity in the same footprint as our current equipment. The brand-new technology system, name BasaMax™, has been specifically designed for the manufacture of BasaFlex™ using Basanite’s patent pending process. Two versions of this equipment have been designed, and these will not only offer double the capacity of our current equipment (per machine), but also each machine will run significantly faster. A prototype is currently undergoing preliminary testing in Pompano Beach. Based on a successful trial, Basanite is planning a two-phase plant expansion, eventually including 10 of these new machines. Our goal, subject to a successful raise of the needed funding, is to have this equipment installed and be fully operational in Q4 of 2021, and to reach our targeted capacity level by the summer of 2022.

In February 2021, the term of the existing $1 million loan provided by an entity related to one of the Board of Directors and one outsider was extended, and the amount of the loan increased to approximately $1.6 million. In May 2021, the term of the loan was extended once again, and the amount of the loan increased to approximately $1.7 million. However, a number of factors continue to hinder the Company's ability to attract new capital investment. Because the Company is currently experiencing a scarcity of working capital on top of funding needed for facility upgrades, the Company has temporarily scaled back operations and issued temporary furloughs to certain employees to conserve its cash. No assurances can be given that the Company will be successful in raising future capital.

 

Results of Operations

 

Revenue – The Company had $4,136 of revenues as a result of sales of finished goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $1,625 for the same period in the prior year. Revenues have been minimal as a result of the Company’s focus on the scaling of production and inventory.

 

Cost of goods sold – During the three months ended Mach 31, 2021, the Company had cost of sales of $1,316 compared to $619 in the same period in the prior year. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had a gross margin from operations in the amount of $2,820 compared to a gross margin in the amount of $1,006 in the same period of the prior year. The Company has small margins as they sold existing inventory while preparing for the scaling the manufacture of BasaFlex™.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Professional fees – During the three months ended March 31, 2021, professional fees were $113,732 compared to $109,858 for the same period in the prior year. The Company has increased fees as it relates to legal fees with the ongoing litigation, and new supplier and consulting agreements as it tries to secure relationships in the industry.

 

Payroll and payroll taxes – During the three months ended March 31, 2021, payroll and payroll taxes were $254,115 compared to $237,431 for the same period in the prior year.

 

Consulting – During the three months ended March 31, 2021, consulting fees were $113,250 compared to $17,063 in the prior year. The increase is due to additional consulting agreements: our CEO is currently compensated as a consultant; the previous CEO was compensated as an employee; and the Company has hired a capital markets consultant to assist in financial planning and fundraising.

 

General and administrative – During the three months ended March 31, 2021, general and administrative expenses were $583,770 compared to $217,953 for the same period in the prior year. The increase is largely due to an increase in stock-based compensation expense, as well as an increase in overall general and administrative costs, including but not limited to, supplies, computer and internet, travel, and other overhead costs.

 

Other Income

 

Gain on settlement of payable - During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had a gain of $24,485 compared to $70,817 for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in the current year is largely due to the writing off of fewer payables that had exceeded their statute of limitations for collection.

 

Loan forgiveness - During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had forgiveness of $124,143 compared to $0 for the same period in the prior year. The increase is due to the full forgiveness of the promissory note issued by the Small Business Administration under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) on May 1, 2020. Forgiveness of the note consisted of $123,318 in principal and $825 in accrued interest.

 

Other Expenses

 

Loss on Extinguishment of Debt - During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had a loss of $3,686,123 compared to $0 for the same period in the prior year.  For more information about the transaction refer to footnote 6 of the financial statements included in this Form 10-Q.

 

Interest expense - During the three months ended March 31, 2021, interest expense was $72,663 compared to $50,823 for the same period in the prior year. The increase is due to the overall increase of debt and the increase in interest rates.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Since inception, the Company has incurred net operating losses and used cash in operations. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $4,315,592. The Company has incurred general and administrative expenses associated with its product development and compliance while concurrently setting up the facility, beginning operations, and developing its business. The Company also continues incurring legal fees arising from ongoing litigation. We expect operating losses to continue in the short term and require additional financing for continued support of our BFRP manufacturing business until the Company can generate sufficient revenues to achieve positive cash flow. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We have historically satisfied our working capital requirements through the sale of restricted common stock and the issuance of warrants and promissory notes. We will continue our fundraising efforts until we have obtained positive cash flow to cover our expenses. No assurances can be given that the Company will be successful in raising future capital.

 

At March 31, 2021, the Company had cash of $355,759 compared to $259,505 at December 31, 2020.

 

Notwithstanding proceeds from the sale of our common stock this year, current working capital and projected sales revenue are insufficient to maintain our current operations. In order to scale up operations and reach the level of sales revenue sufficient to provide positive cash flow, the Company requires funding of both its expansion plan and its operating deficit through the scaling period. The Company will attempt to raise this capital through third party financing, including a private placement of our securities as well as bridge loan arrangements. We cannot provide any assurances that required capital will be obtained or that the terms of such required financing may be acceptable to us. If we are unable to obtain adequate financing, we may reduce our operating activities to reduce our cash use until sufficient funding is secured.

 

The coronavirus (“COVID-19”) that surfaced in December 2019 and spread throughout the world resulted in Basanite undergoing a 2-month operational shutdown early in the second quarter of 2019, with normal business operations resuming in June. A second coronavirus related event occurred in early February 2021, when two employees tested positive for coronavirus and the Company became concerned they had potentially exposed the others. Out of an abundance of caution, the Company temporarily shut down operations for one week and entered a 10-day quarantine period (during this time certain key employees remained active, working from home). The Company strictly followed CDC guidelines for required quarantining period and testing of all employees before re-opening. That being said, since the beginning of October 2020, COVID-19 has not materially impacted our operations or those of our third-party partners. However, the continued spread and variants of the virus could negatively impact the manufacturing, supply, distribution and sale of our products and our financial results in the future. The extent to which the coronavirus may impact our operations or those of our third-party partners will depend on future developments, which are uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence.

 

Cash Flows

 

Net cash used in operating activities amounted to $920,915 and $7,731 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. In the current period a loss was recorded related to the issuance of warrants at fair value issued as compensation for the extension of the maturity date of an amended note.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, net cash used for investing activities were $131,903 compared to $59,377 for the same period in the prior year. The increase is largely due to costs associated with the customization, installation, and verification and validation testing of the first BasaMaxTM prototype pultrusion machine.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had $1,149,072 net cash provided by financing activities. Proceeds of $213,500 from the sale of stock to investors and related parties for 2,050,000 restricted common shares issued; borrowing of $675,275 from the issuance of convertible and short-term notes payable, including from related parties; receipt of $300,000 for the future issuance of notes payable, including from related parties, represented as due to stockholders on the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows; less $35,000 from full repayment of a multiple convertible notes; less $4,703 of full repayment of notes payable.

 

We do not believe that our cash on hand as of March 31, 2021 will be sufficient to fund our current working capital requirements as we try to develop our fiber reinforced polymer rebar manufacturing business. We entered into promissory notes and issued restricted common shares in an effort to raise additional working capital. See Note 13 – Subsequent Events in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for more details. We will continue working towards securing more working capital. However, there is no assurance that we will be successful in securing working capital or, if we are, that the terms will be beneficial to our shareholders.

Risk Factors

 

Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risk factors included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021, before deciding whether to invest in the Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us, or that we currently deem immaterial, may also impair our business operations or our financial condition.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) that are designed to be effective in providing reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

The Company’s management, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) through March 31, 2020.

 

During our assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2020 management identified material weaknesses related to (i) the U.S. GAAP expertise and experience of our internal accounting personnel and (ii) a lack of segregation of duties within accounting functions. As a result of these material weaknesses, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of March 31, 2020.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, however, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.

 

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 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. – OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Legal Matters

 

In the ordinary course of operations, the Company may become a party to legal proceedings. Based upon information currently available, management believes that such legal proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, cash flows, or results of operations except as provided below.

 

CalSTRS Judgement

 

On March 31, 2014, the Company received a “Notice of Default” letter from legal counsel representing the California State Teachers Retirement System (“CalSTRS”) (the landlord for the Company’s office space) alerting that the Company was in default of its lease for failure to pay monthly rent for the office space located at 2400 East Commercial Boulevard, Suite 612, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. The letter demanded immediate payment of $41,937 for rent past due as of April 1, 2014. The Company had indicated in writing its intention to cooperate with the landlord while trying to resolve the matter. On February 11, 2015, the landlord, through its attorneys, filed a motion for summary judgment. The motion asked for $376,424 in unpaid rent, recovery of abated rents and tenant improvements and $12,442 in attorney’s costs incurred by the landlord. On April 22, 2015, the motion for unpaid rent, recovery of abated rents and tenant improvements and attorney’s costs was granted by the Circuit Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County and the Company has reserved the entire judgement of $388,866. The total amount is accruing interest at the statutory rate of 4.75%. The accrued interest on the judgement at March 31, 2021 is $109,815.

 

RAW Materials Litigation

 

On or about August 28, 2018, Raw Energy Materials Corp. filed an action for declaratory relief and breach of contract in Broward County, Florida, in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court, titled Raw Energy Materials Corp. v. Rockstar Acquisitions, LLC, Paymeon, Inc. (now Basanite, Inc.), and Basalt America, LLC, CASE NO.: CACE 18-020596. An Amended Complaint was filed on or about December 19, 2018 adding Basanite Industries, LLC as a defendant, as well as an alleged claim under Florida Statute Section 501.201 and for injunction. The Company filed and has pending an amended counterclaim for breach of contract, fraud and civil conspiracy against Raw Energy affiliates, including Don Smith, Elina Jenkins, Global Energy Sciences, LLC, Yellow Turtle Design, LLC, as well as former business affiliates/associates to Don Smith, Richard Laurin and Robert Ludwig. The nature of the dispute is based on representations (or misrepresentations) the Company alleges were made to it, as well as breaches of the terms of a licensing agreement, related consulting and other agreements, and failures and refusals of plaintiff and Don Smith related entities to deliver equipment/machinery and goods paid for by the Company or its affiliates. As it became apparent that the subject license agreement was effectively worthless and moot to the Company, and the purported and promised trade secrets and intellectual property were essentially non-existent, the Company and Plaintiff agree to an order terminating that license agreement, which resulted in the agreed order dated January 28, 2019.

 

A mediation was scheduled on March 4, 2021 which resulted in an impasse. Negotiations were continued, and on April 14, 2021, Basanite, Inc. entered into a settlement and release agreement with RAW, LLC (“RAW”), Donald R. Smith, YellowTurtle Design LLC (“YellowTurtle”) and Elina B. Jenkins among others. The settlement agreement provides for, among other things, the following: (i) a dismissal of the legal action as to the above-referenced parties and their owners, agents, affiliated companies, successors and assigns, having Case Number 18-020596 (21) in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court in and for Broward County, Florida (the “Litigation”) upon the Company’s timely purchase of the shares as set forth in the next paragraph below and (ii) mutual general releases for the above-referenced parties relating to the Litigation upon the Company’s timely purchase of the shares as set forth in the next paragraph below.

 

Simultaneously with the execution of the settlement agreement settling the litigation in full and release of all claims among the parties, the Company entered into stock purchase agreements with both RAW and YellowTurtle to repurchase the 10,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock held by RAW for $1,212,121 and the 6,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock held by YellowTurtle for $787,879, or an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000. If the purchase price is not paid on or before May 17, 2021, the purchase agreements and settlement agreement between the parties hereto shall become null and void, while RAW and YellowTurtle shall retain all of their above-referenced shares of common stock in the Company. On May 17, 2021, the settlement shares were purchased by a group of related and non-related investors which resulted in the closing of this legal action.

The foregoing description of the settlement agreement and purchase agreements do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the settlement agreement and purchase agreements, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, to the Report on Form 8-K filed April 19, 2021.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

 

On February 12, 2021 (the “Issuance Date”), the Company entered into an Amended and Restated 20% Secured Convertible Promissory Note (the “Restated Promissory Note”) with certain accredited investors (the “Holders”) for an aggregate of $1,610,004.54 in principal amount which cancelled and restated in its entirety the 20% Secured Convertible Promissory Note entered into by the Company and the same Holders on August 3, 2020 and is more fully described in Amendment No. 1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2020 (the “Original Promissory Note”).  On the Issuance Date, the Holders advanced the Company an additional $500,000 pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Restated Promissory Note (the “Additional Advance”).  Additionally, the accrued but unpaid interest through February 11, 2021 under the Original Promissory Note in the amount of $110,004.54 was added to the principal amount of the Restated Promissory Note The Restated Promissory Note has a maturity date of May 12, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”) and will continue to have an interest rate of 20% per annum.  Interest will be payable in cash at the Maturity Date.  If, prior to the Maturity Date, the Company consummates an equity financing, revenue sharing transaction, joint venture, or other similar type transaction (including any combination and/or multiple transactions  thereof) with total cash proceeds to the Company of not less than $3,000,000, the Agent (as defined below), at its sole discretion and by providing written notice to the Company, may elect to extend the Maturity Date of this Note by an additional six months such that the Maturity Date shall then be November 12, 2021. In connection with the issuance of the Restated Promissory Note and in consideration of the Additional Advance and the extension of the Maturity Date under the Original Promissory Note, on February 12, 2021 the Company issued to the Holders, on a pro rata basis, Common Stock Warrants to purchase up to an aggregate of 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at a per share exercise price of $0.20 (the “Warrants”).   Pursuant to the terms of the Restated Promissory Note, The Richard A. LoRicco Sr. and Lucille M. LoRicco Irrevocable Insurance Trust DTD 4/28/95, Louis Demaio as Trustee will serve as the agent for the benefit of the Holders (the “Agent”).
