|SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES||
Basis of Presentation
The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
We consider all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The carrying value of those investments approximates their fair market value due to their short maturity and liquidity. Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and amounts on deposit with financial institutions, which amounts may at times exceed federally insured limits. We have not experienced any losses on such accounts and we do not believe we are exposed to any significant credit risk.
Cash and cash equivalents were $1,291 and $161,215 at September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.
Derivatives and Hedging- Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity
In accordance with the provisions of ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging” the embedded beneficial conversion features in the Convertible Loan Notes (Note 6) are not considered to be indexed to our stock. As a result, these are required to be accounted for as a derivative financial liability and have been recognized as a liability on the balance sheets. The fair value of the derivative financial liability is determined using the Monte Carlo valuation model and is affected by changes in inputs to that model including the Company’s stock price, expected stock price volatility, the contractual term, and the risk-free interest rate. The derivative financial liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date and any changes in fair value is recognized as a component in other income (expenses) (Note 7).
We recognize revenue when it is realized or realizable and estimable in accordance with ASC 605, “Revenue Recognition.”
Research and Development Expenses
We follow ASC 730-10, “Research and Development,” and expense research and development costs when incurred. Accordingly, third-party research and development costs, including designing, prototyping and testing of product, are expensed when the contracted work has been performed or milestone results have been achieved. Research and development costs of $75,000 and $87,000 were incurred for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 and $225,000 and $281,076 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
Compensation expense related to stock options granted is measured at the grant date based on the estimated fair value of the award and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. Forfeitures are recognized as a reduction of stock-based compensation expense as they occur.
We follow ASC 850, “Related Party Disclosures,” for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.
Earnings per Share
We compute basic and diluted earnings per share amounts in accordance with ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share.” Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if preferred stock converted to common stock and warrants are exercised. Preferred stock and warrants are excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation if their effect is anti-dilutive.
As of September 30, 2018, the Company had 35,907,776 potential shares, options, and warrants that were excluded from our calculation of diluted earnings per share because their effect would have been anti-dilutive. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had 14,884,001 shares that were considered to be anti-dilutive.
Comprehensive Income (Loss)
Comprehensive income (loss) is defined as the change in equity during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources. The Company is required to record all components of comprehensive income (loss) in the financial statements in the period in which they are recognized. Net income (loss) and other comprehensive income (loss), are reported net of their related tax effect, to arrive at comprehensive income (loss). The Company had no other comprehensive income or loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
We have reviewed the FASB issued ASU accounting pronouncements and interpretations thereof that have effectiveness dates during the periods reported and in future periods. We have carefully considered the new pronouncements that alter previous generally accepted accounting principles and do not believe that any new or modified principles will have a material impact on the Company’s reported financial position or operations in the near term. The applicability of any standard is subject to the formal review of the Company’s financial management.
The entire disclosure for all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
