NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Business Description – Business Activity: Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (the "Company") is a Colorado corporation incorporated on March 20, 2014. The Company is a cannabis consulting company providing services related to cost efficient cannabis cultivation technologies focusing on quality as well as safety, retail operations related to the delivery of cannabis related products, and other related business lines as described in our operating strategic vision outlined below.
The Company also intends to continue to expand its presence within the cannabis industry through acquisition of affiliated and unaffiliated synergistic businesses.
|1.||Liquidity and Capital Resources:|
Cash Flows – During the quarters ending September 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company primarily utilized cash and cash equivalents and profits from operations to fund its operations.

|2.||Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates:|
Basis of Presentation: The accompanying condensed balance sheet as of December 31, 2015, has been derived from audited financial statements. The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual audited financial statements and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial statements. In the opinion of management, such unaudited information includes all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation of this interim information. Operating results and cash flows for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that can be expected for the entire year. The information included in this report should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.
Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported therein. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, actual results reported in future periods may be based upon amounts that differ from these estimates.
Accounts receivable: The Company extends unsecured credit to its customers in the ordinary course of business. Accounts receivable related to licensing revenues are recorded at the time the milestone result in the funds being due being achieved, services are delivered and payment is reasonably assured.

The Company considers the securities to be liquid and convertible to cash in under a year. The Company has the ability and intent to liquidate any security that the Company holds to fund operations over the next twelve months, if necessary, and as such has classified all its marketable securities as short-term. Our investment securities at September 30, 2016 consist of available-for-sale instruments which include $16,000 of equity in publicly traded companies. All our available-for-sale securities are Level 1. Realized gains and losses on these securities will be included in “other income (expense)” in the consolidated statements of income using the specific identification method.

At any point, at the lenders sole discretion, before the due date this note can be converted into members interest in the borrow. This loan will convert into an investment and will not be repaid if the Company acquires the borrower.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments: The carrying amounts of cash and current assets and liabilities approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these items. These fair value estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect these estimates. Available for sale securities are recorded at current market value as of the date of this report.
Revenue recognition and related allowances: Revenue from licensing services is recognized when the obligations to the client are fulfilled which is determined when milestones in the contract are achieved. Revenue from seminar fees is related to one day seminars and is recognized as earned at the completion of the seminar. All revenue is measured at fair value.
Costs of Services Sold – Costs of services sold are comprised of direct salaries and related expenses incurred while supporting the implementation of licensing agreements and related services.
General & Administrative Expenses – General and administrative expense are comprised of all expenses not linked to the production or advertising of the Company’s services.
Advertising and Marketing Costs: Advertising and marketing costs are expensed as incurred and were $61,540 and $36,475 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Stock based compensation: The Company accounts for share-based payments pursuant to ASC 718, “Stock Compensation” and, accordingly, the Company records compensation expense for share-based awards based upon an assessment of the grant date fair value for stock and restricted stock awards using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.
Stock compensation expense for stock options is recognized over the vesting period of the award or expensed immediately under ASC 718 and EITF 96-18 when stock or options are awarded for previous or current service without further recourse. The Company issued stock options to contractors and external companies that had been providing services to the Company upon their termination of services. Under ASC 718 and EITF 96-18 these options were recognized as expense in the period issued because they were given as a form of payment for services already rendered with no recourse.
Share based expense paid to through direct stock grants is expensed as occurred. Since the Company’s stock has become publicly traded, the value is determined based on the number of shares issued and the trading value of the stock on the date of the transaction. Prior to the company’s stock being traded the Company used the most recent valuation. The company recognized $49,200 in expenses for stock based compensation to employees through direct stock grants of 120,000 shares in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016 and $79,725 in expenses from the issuance of 122,500 shares in the similar period ended September 30, 2015.
Income taxes: The Company has adopted SFAS No. 109 – “Accounting for Income Taxes”. ASC Topic 740 requires the use of the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the asset and liability method of ASC Topic 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (“we.” “us,” “our” or the "Company") was incorporated on March 20, 2014, in the State of Nevada. On May 1, 2014, we entered into an exclusive Technology License Agreement with Medicine Man Denver, Inc., f/k/a Medicine Man Production Corporation, a Colorado corporation (“Medicine Man Denver”) whereby Medicine Man Denver granted us a license to use all of their proprietary processes they have developed, implemented and practiced at its cannabis facilities relating to the commercial growth, cultivation, marketing and distribution of medical marijuana and recreational marijuana pursuant to relevant state laws and the right to use and to license such information, including trade secrets, skills and experience (present and future) (the “Medicine Man Denver License Agreement”).
We commenced our business on May 1, 2014 and currently generate revenues derived from licensing agreements with cannabis related entities, as well as sponsoring seminars offered to the cannabis industry and other business endeavors related to our core competencies. As of the date of this report we have or have had 45 fee generating clients in 14 different states.
We are currently a cannabis consulting company providing services related to cost efficient cannabis cultivation technologies focusing on quality as well as safety, retail operations related to the delivery of cannabis related products, and other related business lines as described in our operating strategic vision outlined hereinbelow.
One of the key components of our current business plan includes acquisition of unaffiliated and affiliated synergistic companies. As we have previously disclosed in our SEC filings, we intend to aggregate new business opportunities into our corporate fabric in a manner that does not diminish the various companies or brands we will be partnering with, but rather enhances it. Suitable candidates for consideration will have ongoing operations within similar or complementary segments of the cannabis industry, such as the Pono Publications and Success Nutrient acquisitions previously announced by us.
Our management believes that the selection and subsequent due diligence process will enable both the acquisition candidate and us to mutually benefit from the proposed transaction. This belief is supported by the following factors:
|·||consolidation of assets in order to allow us to qualify for listing on a national exchange. We believe this to be very important to our continued growth, as such listing is expected to offer us the opportunity to create relationships with institutions, investment banker and other sources of capital to facilitate our anticipated expansion;|
|·||where applicable, consolidation of marketing efforts in order to take advantage of cost savings strategies;|
|·||enhanced operating and reporting cost efficiencies that are expected to become available through the aggregation of these acquisitions; and|
|·||development of a full spectrum of products and services deliverable to the general cannabusiness marketplace through careful segmentation of the marketplace as a whole.|
Pono Publications and Success Nutrients, both Colorado corporations, are heavily involved in cultivation activities. More specifically, these acquisitions will also allow us to offer enhanced cultivation consulting as well as an extraordinary nutrient line that has been developed specifically for cannabis cultivation use. While we remain optimistic that we will successfully consummate these acquisitions, we are still engaged in performing our due diligence. As previously reported, we recently entered into a temporary operating agreement that should allow us to effectively bridge the time required to successfully complete these acquisitions while allowing all parties to begin to take advantage of common operating element advantages as well as enjoy compensation opportunities driven by this new relationship.
One of the new products developed in cooperation with this new partner referred to as Cultivation MAX, a service we will be launching shortly designed to increase the efficiency as well as yields of an existing cultivation operation in states where such operations are lawful wherein we will be able to achieve increased revenues for our client based upon the improvement of cultivation yields. Our clients will not have any obligation to provide additional compensation to us for ongoing operations unless they achieve improved cultivation outcomes. In addition to design and deployment revenue (nutrients included) we will receive for these services fees based upon the margin of improvement yields typical to our industry on a pre-agreed to performance metric reflected in grams per watt, pounds per light, or grams per square foot of flower canopy.
While no assurances can be provided, we believe our new cultivation performance metrics as achieved through this new partnership will provide extraordinary value to the industry as a whole for those able to recognize that cost of operations and quality will eventually define who thrives or just survives in this industry.
We have never been subject to any bankruptcy proceeding. Our executive offices are located at 4880 Havana Street, Suite 102 South, Denver, Colorado 80239, telephone (303) 371-0387. Our website address is www.medicinemantechnologies.com.
Results of Operations
Comparison of Results of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we generated revenues of $568,388, including consulting/licensing fees of $553,221, with the balance of fees arising from our participation in cannabis seminars, compared to revenue of $623,787 during the similar period in 2015, a decrease of $55,314. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease of $15,252 in revenue derived from seminar fees during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 due to our participation is less seminars. Based upon executed consulting agreements, we expect to recognize substantial deferred income in future quarters related to existing service agreements that have payment triggers based upon new state legislation in Oregon, California, Pennsylvania and Nevada.
Cost of services, consisting of expense related to delivery of services, was $264,825 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to $157,250 during the comparable period in 2015, an increase of $107,575. This increase was largely driven by a one-time payment of approximately $50,000 to another company to assist us with applications during a high production season. In addition, during the first quarter of 2016 we incurred extraordinary expenses working to develop our business in Hawaii.
Operating expenses during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, were $510,123, including general and administrative expense of $504,261, compared to operating expenses of $330,544 incurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2015, an increase of $179,157. Increased operating expenses included additional professional fees of $15,869 incurred during the relevant period in 2016 related to being a publicly traded company, $86,683 in increased travel, including costs associated with our business expansion into Hawaii and conference show costs, as well as $61,540 in advertising expense incurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared to advertising expenses of $12,107 during the corresponding period in 2015. Advertising expense increased because of there being more states who had approved or had pending legislation authorizing legalization of cannabis, either medical, recreational or both. We also incurred $49,200 in stock based compensation relating to shares issued for services during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016 (120,000 shares at $.41 per share) compared to $50,000 in stock based compensation related to shares issued for serviced during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 (50,000 shares at $1.00 per share) during the similar period in 2015. Overall, we spent additional funds to advance our brand and marketing presence, as well as beginning due diligence of potential acquisitions.
As a result, we generated net loss of $206,475 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 (approximately ($0.02) per share), compared to net income of $135,993 during the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
Comparison of Results of Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015
During the three months ended September 30, 2016, we generated revenues of $236,593, including consulting/licensing fees of $233,500, with the balance of fees arising from our participation in cannabis seminars, compared to revenue of $241,140 during the similar period in 2015, a decrease of $4,547. This nominal decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease of $28,047 in revenue derived from seminar fees during the three months ended September 30, 2016, due to our participation is less seminars. However, licensing fees increased by $27,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the similar period in 2015. Based upon executed consulting agreements, we expect to recognize substantial deferred income in future quarters related to existing service agreements that have payment triggers based upon new state legislation in Oregon, California, Pennsylvania and Nevada.
Cost of services, consisting of expense related to delivery of services, was $83,209 during the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to $35,603 during the comparable period in 2015, an increase of $47,606.
Operating expenses during the three months ended September 30, 2016, were $139,760, including general and administrative expense of $94,099, compared to operating expenses of $155,089 incurred during the three months ended September 30, 2015, including general and administrative expense of $149,443, a decrease of $15,329. Included in these expenses were decreases of $22,548 in travel related expenses due to the completion of our services in Hawaii, and a decrease of $19,107 in professional fees incurred during this period, offset by increased office costs of $14,518 arising from our beginning to pay compensation to our COO.
As a result, we generated net income of $18,752 during the three months ended September 30, 2016 (approximately $0.00 per share), compared to net income of $50,448 during the three months ended September 30, 2015 (approximately ($0.01 per share).
Liquidity and Capital Resources
At September 30, 2016, we had $91,948 in cash on hand.
Net cash used by operating activities was $320,198 during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016, compared to cash earned from operating activities of $131,547 for the similar period in 2015, a decrease of $451,745. We anticipate we will continue to generate negative cash flow from operations until we complete at least one of several potential acquisitions.
Between November 2014 and March 2015, we undertook a private offering of our Common Stock wherein we sold 270,000 shares of our Common Stock for gross proceeds of $270,000 ($1.00 per share) to 4 non-accredited and 23 “accredited” investors, as that term is defined under the Securities Act of 1933.
As we continue to focus on expanding our branding warehouse concept, we anticipated that we will begin to require infusion of additional capital even if we generate revenues from operations, of which there are no assurances. In response, in October 2016, we closed a private offering of convertible notes in the principal amount of $1,000,000. These notes accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum, with interest payable quarterly. The notes may be converted into Common Stock at the lower of $1.75 per share or 90% of a five day VWAP upon advance notice provided by the note holder. It is expected, though not assured, that this additional cash infusion will meet our cash requirements until we again start generating positive cash flow from operations, of which there can be no assurance. However, if we require additional capital and cannot generate profits from our operations or we elect to expand our operations we have no agreement with any third party to provide us the same and there can be no assurances that we will be able to raise any capital, either debt or equity on commercially reasonable terms, or at all. If we require additional capital and are unable to raise the same, it could have a material negative impact on our results of operations.
In October 2016, the Company modified the loan with Capital G Ltd. and issued an additional $110,000 loan toward the total $250,000 it has committed to make available to the group that owns Funk Sac. The Company has committed to extend an additional $40,000 once due diligence is completed which is expected to be by the end of the year.by October 15th, 2016 as part of its acquisition of this entity. However, if the Company terminates its plans to acquire this entity it is not required to loan the additional $40,000.
In October 2016, we closed a private offering of convertible notes in the principal amount of $1,000,000. These notes accrue interest at the rate of 12% per annum, with interest payable quarterly. The Notes may be converted into Common Stock at the election of the holder at a price equal to the lower of $1.75 per share or 90% of the five day VWAP upon advance notice provided by the note holder.
We have generated a total of ten new clients in the month of October, 2016, alone. These new clients include three new cultivation support and two new dispensary support licensing agreements with clients in Pennsylvania, two cultivation agreements in in Puerto Rico and one new general support services agreement with a Florida-based client. This fills our available capacities in Pennsylvania when added to our existing support commitments.
Although our operations are influenced by general economic conditions, we do not believe that inflation had a material effect on our results of operations during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We had no off-balance sheet arrangements as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
Critical Accounting Estimates
Our financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We continually evaluate the accounting policies and estimates used to prepare the condensed financial statements. The estimates are based on historical experience and assumptions believed to be reasonable under current facts and circumstances. Actual amounts and results could differ from these estimates made by management. Certain accounting policies that require significant management estimates and are deemed critical to our results of operations or financial position are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 in the Critical Accounting Policies section of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
