Note 6 – Fair Value Measurements

 

The Company has issued Variable Debentures which contained variable conversion rates based on unknown future prices of the Company’s common stock. This results in a conversion feature. The Company measures the conversion feature using the Black Scholes option pricing model using the following assumptions:

 

      Three months ended June 30,       Six months ended June 30,  
      2017       2016       2017       2016  
                                 
Expected term     8 months - 5 years       9 months - 3 years       8 months - 5 years       9 months - 3 years  
Exercise price     $0.0203-$0.28       $0.0659-$0.28       $0.0203-$0.28       $0.0659-$0.28  
Expected volatility     184%-201%       221%-276%       184%-276%       199%-276%  
Expected dividends     None       None       None       None  
Risk-free interest rate     1.05% to 1.79%       0.45% to 1.06%       0.45% to 1.79%       0.45% to 1.06%  
Forfeitures     None       None       None       None  

 

 

The time period over which the Company will be required to evaluate the fair value of the conversion feature is eight to twenty-four months or conversion.

 

The assumptions used in determining fair value represent management’s best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. As a result, if factors change, including changes in the market value of the Company’s common stock, managements’ assessment or significant fluctuations in the volatility of the trading market for the Company’s common stock, the Company’s fair value estimates could be materially different in the future.

 

The Company computes the fair value of the derivative liability at each reporting period and the change in the fair value is recorded as non-cash expense or non-cash income. The key component in the value of the derivative liability is the Company’s stock price, which is subject to significant fluctuation and is not under its control. The resulting effect on net loss is therefore subject to significant fluctuation and will continue to be so until the Company’s Variable Debentures, which the convertible feature is associated with, are converted into common stock or paid in full with cash. Assuming all other fair value inputs remain constant, the Company will record non-cash expense when its stock price increases and non-cash income when its stock price decreases.

 

The following table presents changes in the liabilities with significant unobservable inputs (level 3) for the six months ended June 30, 2017:

 

    Derivative  
    Liability  
Balance December 31, 2016   $ 1,927,752  
         
Issuance of convertible debt     4,327,488  
Settlements by debt extinguishment     (6,514,428 )
Change in estimated fair value     2,400,778  
         
Balance June 30, 2017   $ 2,141,590  

 

Accounting guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring the fair value of assets and liabilities using a hierarchy system, and defines required disclosures. It clarifies that fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants in the market in which the reporting entity transacts business.

 

The Company’s balance sheet contains derivative and warrant liabilities that are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. The three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosure of fair value is as follows:

 

Level 1: uses quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2: uses observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

 

Level 3: uses unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

 

The fair value of the Company’s recorded derivative liability is determined based on unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data, which require a Level 3 classification. A Black Scholes option pricing model was used to determine the fair value. The Company records derivative liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheets at fair value with changes in fair value recorded in the condensed consolidated statements of operation.
