2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Principles of Consolidation


The Company evaluates the need to consolidate affiliates based on standards set forth in Accounting Standard Codification (“ASC”) 810 Consolidation.


The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiary, Immudyne PR and variable interest entities (VIE’s) in which the Company has been determined to be the primary beneficiary. The non-controlling interest in Immudyne PR represents the 21.8333% equity interest held by other members of the joint venture. All significant consolidated transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.


Variable Interest Entities


The Company follows ASC 810-10-15 guidance with respect to accounting for VIE’s. These entities do not have sufficient equity at risk to finance their activities without additional subordinated financial support from other parties or whose equity investors lack any of the characteristics of a controlling financial interest. A variable interest is an investment or other interest that will absorb portions of a VIE’s expected losses or receive portions of its expected residual returns and are contractual, ownership, or pecuniary in nature and that change with changes in the fair value of the entity’s net assets. A reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE and must consolidate it when that party has a variable interest, or combination of variable interests, that provides it with a controlling financial interest. A party is deemed to have a controlling financial interest if it meets both of the power and losses/benefits criteria. The power criterion is the ability to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact its economic performance. The losses/benefits criterion is the obligation to absorb losses from, or right to receive benefits from, the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The VIE model requires an ongoing reconsideration of whether a reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE due to changes in facts and circumstances.


As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company consolidated nine VIEs.


Immudyne PR as the primary beneficiary of Ace Account Management LLC, Innerwell Skincare LLC, MCD Merchants LLC, One Equity Research LLC, Inate Gems LLC, Retriever Health Products LLC, Spurs 5, LLC, Salus LLC and Huntley LLC which are qualified as VIEs. The assets and liabilities and revenues and expenses of these VIEs are included in the financial statements of Immudyne PR and further included in the consolidated financial statements. As of June 30, 2017, the VIEs had assets of $12,051, liabilities of $18,481, revenues of $1,507, and operating expenses of $1,519. As of December 31, 2016, the VIEs had assets of $10,306, liabilities of $5,748. The assets and liabilities include balances due from and due to the subsidiaries of Immudyne PR. Any inter-company receivables and payables are eliminated upon consolidation of the VIEs with Immudyne PR and Immudyne, Inc. No assets were pledged or given as collateral against any borrowings.


The Company utilizes third party entities to provide and increase credit card processing capacity and optimize corresponding rates and fees. A majority of these entities provide this service as independent contractors in exchange for a one percent (1%) fee of the net revenues processed and collected by such contractors from sales initiated by the Company. The VIEs consolidated in the Company’s financial statements are primarily contracted to provide credit card processing through one or more merchant banks. Upon receipt of funds by each VIE, the collection of receipts less any returns, chargebacks and other fees charged by such merchant bank is transferred to Immudyne PR.


Use of Estimates


The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Some of the more significant estimates required to be made by management include the determination of reserves for accounts receivable, returns and allowances, the accounting for derivatives, the valuation of inventory and stockholders’ equity based transactions. Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Derivative Liabilities 


Under ASC 815-40-05, Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to and Potentially Settled in a Company’s Own Stock, in the event the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unissued shares of common stock to satisfy obligations for stock options, warrants and other instruments potentially convertible into common stock, the fair value of these instruments should be reported as a derivative liability. Pursuant to the outstanding option, warrant and convertible debt agreements, there is currently no effective registration statement covering the shares of common stock underlying these agreements, which are currently subject to a cashless exercise whereby the holders, at their option, may surrender their options and warrants to the company in exchange for shares of common stock. The number of shares of common stock into which an option or a warrant would be exchangeable in such a cashless exercise depends on both the exercise price of the options or warrant and the market price of the common stock, each at or near the time of exercise. Because both of these factors are variable, it is possible that the Company could have insufficient authorized shares to satisfy a cashless exercise. In this scenario, if the Company were unable to obtain shareholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares, the Company could be obligated to settle such a cashless exercise with cash rather than by issuing shares of common stock. Further, ASC 815-40-05 requires that the Company record the potential settlement obligation at each reporting date using the current estimated fair value of these contracts, with any changes in fair value being recorded through our statement of operations. The Company will continue to report the potential settlement obligation as a derivative liability until such time as these contracts are exercised or expire or we are otherwise able to modify the warrant agreements to remove the provisions which require this treatment. The Company also plans to amend its Articles of Incorporation in the third quarter of 2017 to increase the number of shares of its authorized common stock after the approval by its shareholders.


Sequencing Policy


Under ASC 815-40-35, the Company has adopted a sequencing policy whereby, in the event that reclassification of contracts from equity to assets or liabilities is necessary pursuant to ASC 815 due to the Company’s inability to demonstrate it has sufficient authorized shares, shares will be allocated on the basis of the earliest issuance date of potentially dilutive instruments, with the earliest grants receiving the first allocation of authorized but unissued shares, and all future instruments being classified as a derivative liability, with the exception of instruments related to share-based compensation issued to employees or directors. 




At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, inventory consisted primarily of cosmetic and nutraceutical additives, and finished cosmetic products. Inventory is maintained in the Company’s leased Kentucky warehouse and third party warehouses in Pennsylvania and Louisiana.


Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or market with cost determined on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis. Management compares the cost of inventory with the net realizable value and an allowance is made for writing down inventory to market value, if lower. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company recorded an inventory reserve in the amount of $20,000. Inventory consists of the following:


      June 30,
    December 31,
  Raw materials   $ 31,752     $ 38,460  
  Finished products     95,696       121,810  
      $ 127,448     $ 160,270  

Revenue Recognition


The Company’s policy is to record revenue as earned when a firm commitment, indicating sales quantity and price exists, delivery has taken place and collectability is reasonably assured. The Company generally records sales of nutraceutical and cosmetic additives once the product is shipped to the customer, and for sales of finished cosmetic products once the customer places the order and the product is simultaneously shipped, but in limited cases if title does not pass until the product reaches the customer’s delivery site, then recognition of revenue is deferred until that time. Delivery is considered to have occurred when title and risk of loss have transferred to the customer. Provisions for discounts, returns, allowances, customer rebates and other adjustments are netted with gross sales. The Company accounts for such provisions during the same period in which the related revenues are earned. Customer discounts, returns and rebates approximated $50,000 and $1,050,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Customer discounts, returns and rebates approximated $12,000 and $620,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. There are no formal sales incentives offered to any of the Company’s customers. Volume discounts may be offered from time to time to customers purchasing large quantities on a per transaction basis.


Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2017 consisted of nutraceutical and cosmetic additives ($703,893) and finished cosmetic products ($827,987). Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2016 consists of nutraceutical and cosmetic additives ($528,220) and finished cosmetic products ($2,340,055).


Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2017 consisted of nutraceutical and cosmetic additives ($447,330) and finished cosmetic products ($660,088). Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016 consists of nutraceutical and cosmetic additives ($262,310) and finished cosmetic products ($964,937).


Accounts receivable


Accounts receivable are carried at original invoice amount less an estimate made for holdbacks and doubtful receivables based on a review of all outstanding amounts. Management determines the allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual customer receivables and considering a customer’s financial condition, credit history and current economic conditions and sets up an allowance for doubtful accounts when collection is uncertain. Customers’ accounts are written off when all attempts to collect have been exhausted. Recoveries of accounts receivable previously written off are recorded as income when received. At June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 the accounts receivable reserve was approximately $37,800 for both periods. As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the reserve for sales returns and allowances was approximately $6,000 and $50,500, respectively.




The guidance for disclosures about segments of an enterprise requires that a public business enterprise report financial and descriptive information about its operating segments. Generally, financial information is required to be reported on the basis used internally for evaluating segment performance and resource allocation. The Company manages its operations in two reportable segments for purposes of assessing performance and making operating decisions. Revenue is generated predominately in the United States, and all significant assets are held in the United States, or United States territories.


The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in the summary of significant accounting policies. The Company allocates resources and evaluates the performance of segments based on income or loss from operations, excluding interest, corporate expenses and other income (expenses).


A summary of the company’s reportable segments is as follows:

Income Taxes


The Company files Corporate Federal and State tax returns, while Immudyne PR, which was formed as a limited liability corporation, files a separate tax return with any tax liabilities or benefits passing through to its members.


The Company records current and deferred taxes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” This ASC requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company establishes a valuation allowance when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. The Company periodically assesses the value of its deferred tax asset, a majority of which has been generated by a history of net operating losses and determines the necessity for a valuation allowance. ASC 740 also provides a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Using this guidance, a company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position in its financial statements only if it is more likely-than-not (i.e., a likelihood of more than 50%) that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position.


The Company’s tax returns for all years since December 31, 2013, remain open to taxing authorities.


Stock-Based Compensation


The Company follows the provisions of ASC 718, “Share-Based Payment”. Under this guidance compensation cost generally is recognized at fair value on the date of the grant and amortized over the respective vesting periods. The fair value of options at the date of grant is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The expected option life is derived from assumed exercise rates based upon historical exercise patterns and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The expected volatility is based upon historical volatility of the Company’s shares using weekly price observations over an observation period that approximates the expected life of the options. The risk-free rate approximates the U.S. Treasury yield curve rate in effect at the time of grant for periods similar to the expected option life. Due to limited history of forfeitures, the estimated forfeiture rate included in the option valuation was zero.


Many of the assumptions require significant judgment and any changes could have a material impact in the determination of stock-based compensation expense.


Earnings (Loss) Per Share


Basic earnings (loss) per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period presented. The diluted earnings per share computation includes the effect, if any, of shares that would be issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, warrants, derivative liability and convertible debt, reduced by the number of shares which are assumed to be purchased by the Company from the resulting proceeds at the average market price during the period, when such amounts are dilutive to the earnings per share calculation.


The weighted average number of common stock equivalents not included in diluted income per share, because the effects are anti-dilutive, was 5,145,693 for the three months ended June 30, 2017.


Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 11,550,273 options and warrants for the six months ended June 30, 2017 have not been included in the loss per share calculation as the effects are anti-dilutive. Common stock equivalents comprising shares underlying 12,700,273 options and warrants for the six months ended June 30, 2016 have not been included in the loss per share calculations as the effects are anti-dilutive.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements 


In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. The new standard provides guidance about which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. This pronouncement is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 but early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance.


In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (“ASU 2016-15”). ASU 2016-15 addresses eight specific cash flow issues with the objective of reducing diversity in practice regarding how certain cash receipts and cash payments are presented in the statement of cash flows. The standard provides guidance on the classification of the following items: (1) debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, (2) settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, (3) contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, (4) proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, (5) proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, (6) distributions received from equity method investments, (7) beneficial interests in securitization transactions, and (8) separately identifiable cash flows. The Company is required to adopt ASU 2016-15 for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017 on a retrospective basis. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption of ASU 2016-15.


In February 2016, a pronouncement was issued that creates new accounting and reporting guidelines for leasing arrangements. The new guidance requires organizations that lease assets to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet related to the rights and obligations created by those leases, regardless of whether they are classified as finance or operating leases. Consistent with current guidance, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease primarily will depend on its classification as a finance or operating lease. The guidance also requires new disclosures to help financial statement users better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The new standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within that reporting period, with early application permitted. The new standard is to be applied using a modified retrospective approach. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of the new pronouncement on its consolidated financial statements. At this time, the adoption of this pronouncement is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements or related disclosures.


In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued accounting guidance, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers." The core principle of the new standard is for companies to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration (that is, payment) to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new standard also will result in enhanced disclosures about revenue, provide guidance for transactions that were not previously addressed comprehensively (for example, service revenue and contract modifications) and clarify guidance for multiple-element arrangements. The standard will be effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017. Accordingly, the Company will adopt this standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The Company does not expect it to have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows.


All other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption.


Noncontrolling Interests


The Company accounts for its less than 100% interest in Immudyne PR in accordance with ASC Topic 810, Consolidation, and accordingly the Company presents noncontrolling interests as a component of equity on its consolidated balance sheet and reports the noncontrolling interest’s share of the Immudyne PR net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests in the consolidated statement of operations.


Concentration of Credit Risk


The Company grants credit in the normal course of business to its customers. The Company periodically performs credit analysis and monitors the financial condition of its customers to reduce credit risk.


The Company monitors its positions with, and the credit quality of, the financial institutions with which it invests. The Company, at times, maintains balances in various operating accounts in excess of federally insured limits.


One customer in the nutraceutical and cosmetic additives division accounted for 35% and 17% of consolidated sales for the three month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. This customer accounted for 42% and 16% of consolidated sales for the six month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. This customer also accounted for 60% and 11% of the consolidated accounts receivable at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.


In the finished cosmetic products division, one credit card processor accounted for 20% of the consolidated accounts receivable at June 30, 2017. In the finished cosmetic products division, two credit card processors accounted for 35% and 32% of the consolidated accounts receivable at December 31, 2016.
