NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATIONAL AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
A. ORGANIZATION AND OPERATIONS
Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”, “our,” “Cyclone”) is the successor entity to the business of Cyclone Technologies LLLP (the “LLLP”), a limited liability limited partnership formed in Florida in September 2004. The LLLP was the original developer and intellectual property holder of the Cyclone engine technology. Initialed in 2016, the Company’s current business model, is to be primarily a research and development engineering company whose main purpose is to develop, commercialize, market and license its Cyclone engine technology. Engines and related systems will be outsourced for manufacturing but the company will invoice customers. Our prior business model also included engine manufacturing.
In 2012, the Company established Cyclone Performance LLC (“Cyclone Performance”) f/k/a Cyclone-TeamSteam USA, LLC. The purpose of Cyclone Performance is to build, test and run a vehicle utilizing the Company’s engine. At September 30, 2017 the company had a 95% controlling interest in Cyclone Performance.
B. PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its 95% owned subsidiary Cyclone Performance. All material inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated in the condensed consolidated financial statements
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to interim financial information and the requirements of Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the SEC. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete consolidated financial statements. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal journal entries, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and the results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods have been included. Complete financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2016, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as part of the Company’s Form 10-K.
The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2017.
The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in conformity with account principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The accounting principles utilized by the Company require the Company to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements, the reported amounts of revenues and expenses, cash flows and the related footnote disclosures during the periods. On an on-going basis, the Company reviews and evaluates its estimates and assumptions, including, but not limited to, those that relate to the realizable value of inventory, identifiable intangible assets and other long-lived assets, contracts, income taxes, derivative liabilities, and contingencies. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
Cash includes cash on hand and cash in banks. At September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company maintained cash and overdraft balances at one financial institution.
D. COMPUTATION OF INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE
Net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share is not presented as the conversion of the preferred stock and exercise of outstanding stock options and warrants would have an anti-dilutive effect. As of September 30, 2017 and 2016, total anti-dilutive shares amounted to approximately 15.8 and 14.7 million shares, respectively.
E. INCOME TAXES
Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method as stipulated by Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the 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 carry forwards. 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. Under ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities or a change in tax rate is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred tax assets are reduced to estimated amounts to be realized by the use of a valuation allowance. A valuation allowance is applied when in management’s view it is more likely than not (50%) that such deferred tax will not be utilized.
In the unlikely event that an uncertain tax position exists in which the Company could incur income taxes, the Company would evaluate whether there is a probability that the uncertain tax position taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities. Reserves for uncertain tax positions would be recorded if the Company determined it is probable that a position would not be sustained upon examination or if payment would have to be made to a taxing authority and the amount is reasonably estimated. As of December 31, 2016, and September 30, 2017, the Company does not believe it has any uncertain tax positions that would result in the Company having a liability to the taxing authorities. Interest related to the unrecognized tax benefits is recognized in the consolidated financial statements as a component of income taxes. The Company’s tax returns are subject to examination by the federal and state tax authorities for the years ended 2014 through 2016.
F. REVENUE RECOGNITION
The Company’s revenue recognition policies are in compliance with ASC 605, “Revenue Recognition – Multiple Element Arrangements”, and Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 104, Revenue Recognition. Revenue is recognized at the date of shipment of engines and systems, engine prototypes, engine designs or other deliverables to customers when a formal arrangement exists, the price is fixed or determinable, the delivery is completed, no other significant obligations of the Company exist and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue from contracts for multiple deliverables and milestone method recognition would be evaluated and allocated as appropriate. Payments received before all of the relevant criteria for revenue recognition will be satisfied are recorded as deferred revenue on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company does not allow its customers to return prototype products. Current contracts do not require the Company to provide any warranty assistance after the “deliverable” has been accepted.
It is the Company’s intention when it has royalty revenue from its contracts to record royalty revenue periodically when earned, as reported in sales statements from customers. The Company does not have any royalty revenue to date.
G. WARRANTY PROVISIONS
Current contracts do not require warranty assistance subsequent to acceptance of the “deliverable R&D prototype” by the customer. For products that the Company will sell in the future, warranty costs are anticipated to be borne by the manufacturing vendor.
Inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or market. Based on our revised R&D company business model, commencing in 2016, costs include material to develop a completed engine. In our former business model, costs included material, labor and allocated overhead to manufacture a completed engine.
Costs are periodically evaluated to determine if they have a net realizable value. If the net realizable value is lower than the carrying amount, a reserve is provided.
I. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” requires disclosures of information about the fair value of certain financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate the value. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and loans payable approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Inputs refer broadly to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk. Inputs may be observable or unobservable. Observable inputs are based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s own assumptions based on the best information available in the circumstances. The fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are defined as follows:
|Level 1||—||Inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.|
|Level 2||—||Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, as of the reporting date.|
|Level 3||—||Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability that reflect management’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability as of the reporting date.|
The summary of fair values and changing values of financial instruments as of January 1, 2017 (beginning of period) and September 30, 2017 (end of period) is as follows:
|Instrument||Beginning of Period||Change||End of Period||Level||Valuation Methodology|
|Derivative liabilities||$||754,000||$||408,397||$||1,162,397||3||Stochastic Process Forecasting Model|
Please refer to Note 16 for disclosure and assumptions used to calculate the fair value of the derivative liabilities.
J. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Research and development activities for product development are expensed as incurred. Costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 were $65,544, $162,462, $57,977 and $131,827, respectively.
K. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION
The Company applies the fair value method of ASC 718, “Share Based Payment”, in accounting for its stock based compensation. This standard states that compensation cost is measured at the grant date based on the value of the award and is recognized over the service period, which is usually the vesting period. The Company values stock based compensation at the market price for the Company’s common stock as of the date in which the obligation for payment of services is incurred.
L. COMMON STOCK OPTIONS AND PURCHASE WARRANTS
The Company accounts for common stock options and purchase warrants at fair value in accordance with ASC 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging”. The Black-Scholes option pricing valuation method (“BSM option pricing model”) is used to determine fair value of these warrants consistent with ASC 718, “Share Based Payment”. Use of this method requires that the Company make assumptions regarding stock volatility, dividend yields, expected term of the warrants and risk-free interest rates.
The Company accounts for transactions in which services are received from non-employees in exchange for equity instruments based on the fair value of the equity instruments exchanged, in accordance with ASC 505-50, “Equity Based payments to Non-employees”.
M. ORIGINAL ISSUE DEBT DISCOUNT
The original issue discount (OID) related to notes payable is amortized by the effective interest method over the repayment period of the notes. The unamortized OID is represented as a reduction of the amount of the notes payable.
N. PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT
Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed on the straight-line method, based on the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:
|Display equipment for trade shows||3|
|Leasehold improvements and furniture and fixtures||10 - 15|
Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred.
O. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG LIVED ASSETS
The Company continually evaluates the carrying value of intangible assets and other long-lived assets to determine whether there are any impairment losses. If indicators of impairment are present and future cash flows are not expected to be sufficient to recover the assets’ carrying amount, an impairment loss would be charged to expense in the period identified. To date, the Company has not recognized any impairment charges.
P. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
Recent FASB issuances:
Update 2017-03—Accounting Changes and Error Corrections (Topic 250) and Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to Staff Announcements at the September 22, 2016 and November 17, 2016 EITF Meetings (SEC Update). The Company is still in the process of evaluating the effect of adoption on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows and the effective date of application is 2018.
Update 2017-01—Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business
The Company is still in the process of evaluating the effect of adoption of theses Updates on its financial position, results of operations and cash flows and the effective date of application is 2018.
Modified in 2016- Revenue Recognition –ASC 606
In May 2014, and subsequently modified, the FASB issued ASC 606 Revenue from Contracts with Customers as guidance on the recognition of respective revenue from contracts Revenue recognition will depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. The principle sections of the guidance related to: 1. Determine if there is a contract. 2. Identify the performance obligations 3. Establish the contract price 4. Allocate the contract price to the various phases of the contract
The implementation guidance permits two methods: retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented, or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the guidance recognized at the date of initial application (the cumulative catch-up transition method). Commencing in 2018 the company will adopt the guidance and apply the cumulative catch-up transition method. The transition adjustment to be recorded to stockholders’ equity upon adoption of the new standard is not expected to be material.
Q. CONCENTRATION OF RISK
The Company does not have any off-balance sheet concentrations of credit risk. The Company expects cash and accounts receivable to be the two assets most likely to subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk. The Company’s policy is to maintain its cash with high credit quality financial institutions to limit its risk of loss exposure.
As of September 30, 2017, the Company maintained its cash in one quality financial institution. The Company has not experienced any losses in its bank accounts through September 30, 2017. The Company purchases raw material and components from multiple sources, none of which may be considered a principal or material supplier. If necessary, the Company could replace these suppliers with minimal effect on its business operations.
R. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
Accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and for hedging activities were codified by ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC Topic 815”). It requires that all derivatives be recognized in the balance sheet and measured at fair value. Gains or losses resulting from changes in the fair value of derivatives are recognized in earnings or recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) depending on the purpose of the derivatives and whether they qualify and have been designated for hedge accounting treatment. The Company has derivative liabilities pursuant to convertible debt and common stock warrants, and has recognized net expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company does not have any derivative instruments for which it has applied hedge accounting treatment.
NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN
As shown in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred substantial operating and other losses and expenses of approximately $1.5 million and $0.9 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 respectively. The cumulative deficit since inception is approximately $62.3 million. The Company has a working capital deficit at September 30, 2017 of approximately $4.9 million. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There is no guarantee whether the Company will be able to generate enough revenue and/or raise capital to support its operations. This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on management’s plans which include implementation of its business model to generate revenue from development contracts, licenses and product sales, and continuing to raise funds through debt or equity raises. The Company will also likely continue to rely upon related-party debt or equity financing.
The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties. The Company is currently raising working capital to fund its operations via private placements of debt, advance contract payments (deferred revenue), advances from and deferred payments to related parties and the timing of payment of accrued liabilities.
NOTE 3 – INVENTORY, NET
Inventory principally consists of raw material to develop an engine.
Inventory, net consists of
|September 30, 2017||December 31, 2016|
We provide estimated provisions for the realization, valuation and obsolescence of our inventories, including adjustments to market, based on various factors, including the age of such inventory and our management’s assessment of the need for such provisions.

|Equipment and computers||202,578||202,578|
|Net property and equipment||$||72,517||$||93,272|
Depreciation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 was $20,755 and $25,924, respectively.
NOTE 5 – PATENTS, TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS
Patents, trademarks and copyrights consist of legal fees paid to file and perfect these claims. The net balances as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 were $159,392 and $178,478, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and for the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company capitalized $0 and $0, respectively, of expenditures related to these assets. As of September 30, 2017, the Company had 15 patents issued on its technology both in the U.S. and internationally, and six trademarks in the U.S.
Patents, trademarks and copyrights are amortized over the life of the intellectual property which is 15 years. Amortization expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 were $19,086 and $26,316, respectively.
NOTE 6 – NOTES AND OTHER LOANS PAYABLE

NOTE 9 – STOCK TRANSACTIONS
The Company authorized an increase of Common Stock to 6 Billion shares in the last quarter of 2017. This is a requirement by debt covenants to cover old convertible debt. This is required as the stock price has fallen and shares have to be available at 4 times the conversion rate.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company:
|a-||Amortized (based on vesting) $2,568 of common stock options for employee services.|
|b-||Issued approximately 585.7 million shares of common stock pursuant to conversions of approximately $418,000 of notes payable, accrued liabilities and related interest|

NOTE 10 – STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANTS
A. COMMON STOCK OPTION
Per the employment contracts with certain officers, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the company issued 1,350,000 common stock options, valued at $1,260 (pursuant to the Black Scholes valuation model) that are exercisable into shares of common stock at an average exercise price of $.0009 and with a maturity life of 10 years. For the nine months year ended September 30, 2017, the amortization of stock options was $2,568 and the unamortized balance was $1,089.
A summary of the common stock options for the period from December 31, 2016 through September 30, 2017 follows:
|Number Outstanding||Weighted Avg. Exercise Price||Weighted Avg. Remaining Contractual Life (Years)|
|Balance, December 31, 2016||14,030,000||$||.0960||5.3|
|Balance, September 30 , 2017||15,380,000||$||.0878||5.0|
The vested and exercisable options at period end follows:
|Exercisable/ Vested Options Outstanding||Weighted Avg. Exercise Price||Weighted Avg. Remaining Contractual Life (Years)|
|Balance September 30 , 2017||14,930,000||$||.085||4.86|
|Additional vesting by December 31, 2017||450,000||.0024||9.0|
The fair value of new stock options, granted using the Black-Scholes option pricing model was calculated using the following assumptions:
|Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017||Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016|
|Risk free interest rate||1.5-1.62%||.71-.88%|
|Expected dividend yield||0||%||0||%|
|Average value per options and warrants||$ .0004-.0015||$ .0019-.0020|
Expected volatility is based on historical volatility of the Company’s common stock price. Short Term U.S. Treasury rates were utilized at the risk-free interest rate. The expected term of the options and warrants was calculated using the alternative simplified method newly codified as ASC 718 “Accounting for Stock Based Compensation,” which defined the expected life as the average of the contractual term of the options and warrants and the weighted average vesting period for all issuances.
B. COMMON STOCK WARRANTS
A summary of outstanding vested warrant activity for the period from December 31, 2016 to September 30, 2017 follows:
|Number Outstanding||Weighted Average Exercise Price||Weighted Average Remaining Contractual Life (Years)|
|Common Stock Warrants|
|Balance, December 31, 2016||500,000||$||.08||.67|
|Balance, September 30, 2017||-||$||-||-|
NOTE 11 – INCOME TAXES
A reconciliation of the differences between the effective income tax rates and the statutory federal tax rates for the Nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 are as follows:
September 30 , 2017
September 30, 2016
|Tax benefit at U.S. statutory rate||34||%||$||273,037||34||%||$||233,075|
|State taxes, net of federal benefit||4||%||32,122||4||%||27,421|
|Change in valuation allowance||(38||)%||$||(305,159||)||(38||)%||$||(260,496||)|
The tax effect of temporary differences that give rise to significant portions of the deferred tax assets and liabilities at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 consisted of the following:
|Deferred Tax Assets||September 30, 2017||December 31, 2016|
|Net Operating Loss Carry-forward||$||10,981,661||$||10,577,607|
|Deferred Tax Liabilities – Accrued Officers’ Salaries||(978,681||)||(900,306||)|
|Net Deferred Tax Assets||10,002,980||9,677,301|
|Total Net Deferred Tax Assets||$||-||$||-|
As of September 30, 2017, the Company had a net operating loss carry forward for income tax reporting purposes of approximately $23.6 million that may be offset against future taxable income through 2031. Current 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. No tax asset has been reported in the financial statements because the Company believes there is a 50% or greater chance the carry forwards will expire unused. Accordingly, the potential tax benefits of the loss carry forwards are offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.
NOTE 12- LEASE OBLIGATIONS
A. LEASE ON FACILITIES
The Company leases a 6,000-square foot warehouse and office facility located at 601 NE 26th Court in Pompano Beach, Florida.

NOTE 14 –CONSOLIDATED SUBSIDIARY
In 2012, the Company established a 100% owned subsidiary (renamed) Cyclone Performance LLC. The purpose of Cyclone Performance is to build, test and run a vehicle utilizing the Company’s engine. In the last quarter of 2012, the Company sold a 5% equity investment to an unrelated investor for $30,000. Subsequent to December 31, 2012, this 5% equity investment was acquired by a corporate officer of the Company. Losses of the subsidiary are currently fully borne by the Company, as there is no guarantee of future profits or positive cash flow of the subsidiary. As of September 30, 2017, the cumulative unallocated losses to the non-controlling interests of this subsidiary of $953 are to be recovered by the parent from future subsidiary profits if they materialize.
NOTE 15 – RECEIVABLES, DEFERRED REVENUE AND BACKLOG
As of September 30, 2017, total backlog for prototype engines to be delivered was $400,000 from the Combilift agreement, of which $100,000 has been paid and has been recorded as deferred revenue. In 2016, three (3) other customers advanced $206,950 as deposits towards payments on $355,000 of contracts for engines currently estimated to be delivered during 2018 and license deposits. In the third quarter of 2017, the company recognized $150,000 of deferred revenue from FSDS upon the delivery of the engine design and documentation (as per the contract).

FSDS has been placed under Danish government receivership and the Company has reached out to the Danish Ministry of Defense and other Danish military contractors to complete the contract.
NOTE 16 – DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
In the second quarter of 2017 we again entered into additional convertible debt agreements. The current convertible notes have conversion prices into common stock that ranged from a discount of 30% to 45% of the lowest closing prices in the 10 to 20 trading days prior to the conversion. Under provisions of ASC Topic 815-40, this conversion feature triggered derivative accounting treatment because the convertible note was convertible into an indeterminable number of shares of common stock. The fair value of the embedded conversion option was required to be presented as a derivative liability and adjusted to fair value at each reporting date, with changes in fair value reported in the condensed consolidated statements of operation.
In the Nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company recorded a $118,076 non-cash charge to interest expense (reflective of debt discount amortization), and a non-cash charge of $329,366 of derivative losses related to adjusting the derivative liability to fair value. At September 30, 2017, the derivative related fair value of debt and related convertible liabilities was $1,162,397.

Results of Operations
Three Months Ended September 30, 2017 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2016
Revenue. In the quarter ended September 30, 2017 the Company recognized $150,000 pursuant to delivery of engine design and building documentation from the FSDS contract and a $25,000 licenses fee from Phoenix Power Group. There were no revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

The majority of the variance was due to higher General and Administrative expenses of $49,750 (18%) from consulting and professional fees, and higher R&D expenses of $7,567 (13%) from reduced staffing allocations to WIP inventory. On August 1, 2017 the Company executed two one-time consulting payments in the amount of one hundred million shares each.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, cash decreased by $591. This is reflective of funds used by the net loss of $1,510,741 and recognition of $150,000 deferred revenue. This was offset by funds provided by debt proceeds of $154,650, higher accounts payable and accrued expenses of $698,255 and a net increase of $242,142 in related party notes payables and accrued expenses. Non-cash charges included a $70,934 loss recognized by settling debt with common stock and $447,443 of non-cash charges from fair value derivative accounting and derivative expense.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, cash increased by $1,387. This is reflective of funds used by the net loss of $900,126 and an increase of $84,007 in inventory (WIP labor and materials). This was offset by funds provided by higher accounts payable and accrued expenses of $251,250, an increase of $416,631 in related party payables, accrued expenses and notes payable, a $115,700 increase in customer contract deposits recorded in deferred revenue and $90,725 in note proceeds
Cash Flow Management Plan
As shown in the accompanying condensed financial statements, the Company incurred substantial operating losses and other for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of approximately $1.5 million. Cumulative losses since inception are approximately $62.3 million. The Company has a working capital deficit at September 30, 2017 of approximately $4.9 million. There is no guarantee whether the Company will be able to support its operations on a long-term basis. This raises doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If additional funds cannot be raised or otherwise generated, the Company may be forced to reduce staff, minimize its research and development activities, or in a worst-case scenario, shut-down operations.
Through early 2018, the company projects deposits on purchase orders. Sales prices for these engines were delayed until final purchase costs were received from our manufacturers and integrators.
An engine for the FSDS contract had been delivered in the third quarter and the final engine delivery is in waiting for the outcome of the FSDS reorganization. The remaining $75,000 balance of the contract is contractually required upon delivery.
IBES is negotiating to purchase 5 more beta site projects with anticipated additional revenue from sales of $80,000.
We anticipate delivering manufactured products thru our integrators and manufacturers by the second quarter of 2018. The Company has signed three contracts for deliverables and anticipates purchase orders for manufactured engines by end of the first quarter 2018
Additionally, we have potential contracts in various stages of negotiation that could generate another $2 million in revenue over the following 12 to 24 months. We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in closing these new contracts, but we are cautiously optimistic that these or other opportunities will materialize in the coming quarters.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, that would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements (as that term is defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of Regulation S-K) or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. As such, we are not exposed to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if we had engaged in those types of relationships.
ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
Not required for smaller reporting companies.
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
Conclusion Regarding the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We carried out an evaluation as required by paragraph (b) of Rule 13a-15 and 15d-15 of the Exchange Act, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our President (Chief Executive Officer) and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our financial disclosures, controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, as of September 30, 2017.
A material weakness can be defined as an insufficiency of internal controls that may result in a more than remote likelihood that a material misstatement will not be prevented, detected or corrected in a company’s financial statements.
Based upon that evaluation, our President (Chief Executive Officer) and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective, based on the following deficiencies:
|-||Weaknesses in Accounting and Finance Personnel: We have a small accounting staff and we do not have the robust employee resources and expertise needed to meet complex and intricate GAAP and SEC reporting requirements of a U.S. public company. Additionally, numerous adjustments and proposed adjustments have been noted by our auditors. This is deemed by management to be a material weakness in preparing financial statements.|
|-||We have written accounting policies and control procedures, but we do not have sufficient staff to implement the related controls. Management had determined that this lack of the implantation of segregation of duties, as required by our written procedures, represents a material weakness in our internal controls.|
|-||Internal control has as its core a basic tenant of segregation of duties. Due to our limited size and economic constraints, the Company is not able to segregate for control purposes various asset control and recording duties and functions to different employees. This lack of segregation of duties had been evaluated by management, and has been deemed to be a material control deficiency.|
The Company has determined that the above internal control weaknesses and deficiencies could result in a reasonable possibility for interim financial statements that a material misstatement will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the Company’s internal controls.
Management is currently evaluating what steps can be taken in order to address these material weaknesses. As a growing small business, the Company continuously devotes resources to the improvement of our internal control over financial reporting. Due to budget constraints, the staffing size, proficiency and specific expertise in the accounting department is below requirements for the operation. The Company is anticipating correcting deficiencies as funds become available.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting and Procedures.
There were no changes in internal control over financial reporting and procedures from the previous quarter.
