ECO SCIENCE SOLUTIONS, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Three months ended April 30, 2020

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS

Organization and nature of business

The Company was incorporated in the state of Nevada on December 8, 2009 under the name Pristine Solutions, Inc. On January 8, 2014, the Company changed its name from Pristine Solutions, Inc. to Eco Science Solutions, Inc.  

During fiscal 2016 the Company changed its business focus to pursue eco-friendly consumer related technologies, software and applications.

On January 11, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") authorized the creation of 1,000 shares of Series A Voting Preferred Stock. The holder of the shares of the Series A Voting Preferred Stock has the right to vote those shares of the Series A Voting Preferred Stock regarding any matter or action that is required to be submitted to the shareholders of the Company for approval. The vote of each share of the Series A Voting Preferred Stock is equal to and counted as 10 times the votes of all of the shares of the Company's (i) common stock, and (ii) other voting preferred stock issued and outstanding on the date of each and every vote or consent of the shareholders of the Company regarding each and every matter submitted to the shareholders of the Company for approval.

On June 21, 2017, the Company acquired 100% of the shares of capital stock of Ga-Du Corporation (“Ga-Du”), at which time Ga-Du became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Concurrent with the transaction, Mr. John Lewis and Mr. Randall Overton joined the Board of directors of ESSI. Ga-Du offers a Financial Services Platform, as well as Inventory Control and Advisory Software Platforms, and Retail Inventory Control, bringing important enterprise technologies in-house and bringing ESSI an opportunity to expand the reach of its Herbo branding. Subsequently Ga-Du Corporation entered into an Assignment Agreement with G&L Enterprises, wherein G&L Enterprises assigned to Ga-Du Corporation, all of its rights, interest in, and obligations under a License and Master Marketing Agreement (LMMA) it entered into with Alliance Financial Network, Inc. ("AFN").

AFN provides financial and enterprise services to businesses and individuals, including the cannabis industry, on a programmatic or membership basis from which AFN derives fees and income from enrolling companies in their financial program and providing a range of services, with respect to which AFN and Ga-Du derive fees and income on a fee based schedule.

The primary focus of AFN is a mobile application known as eXPO™ electronic eXchange Portal which provides virtual financial and enterprise services to businesses and individuals that are challenged in the traditional banking systems, and/or require more intensive compliance than banks are willing, or able to perform and/or do not have the technical expertise or financial wherewithal in house to develop their own FinTech solutions, including accounting and enterprise management software. 

Following the closing of the SPA, Ga-Du is a wholly owned subsidiary of ESSI, bringing to ESSI a Financial Services Platform, and Inventory Control and Advisory Software Platforms, thus completing the ESSI product suite to benefit both consumer and professional customers of the Company.

With the acquisition of Ga-Du, ESSI's product suite expanded to include an enclosed ecosystem for business location, localized communications between consumers and business operators, on-topic social networking, inventory management / selection, payment facilitation and delivery arrangement. The Company's holistic commerce and content platform enables health, wellness and alternative medicine enthusiasts to easily locate, access, and connect with others to facilitate the research of and purchasing of eco-science friendly products.

ECO SCIENCE SOLUTIONS, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Three months ended April 30, 2020

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS (cont'd)

Organization and nature of business (cont'd)

During fiscal 2018 and 2019, as AFN focussed its efforts to expand its eXPOTM banking relationships to support next phase operations, the Company focussed on rolling out the Herbo Enterprise Software and building that user base.  The Herbo software provides a point of sale, bookkeeping and banking functions, inventory management and tracking, compliance and reporting, tax and accounting, payroll and HR, ecommerce and payment gateway services and CRM and customer loyalty functions all under one software suite. During fiscal 2020, the Company entered into various licensing contracts for the Herbo Enterprise Software and has commenced generating revenue from this segment of its operations. We expect revenues from our agreements with AFN to return during fiscal 2021.

Eco Science Solutions, Inc. is committed to becoming a vertically integrated provider of consumer and enterprise technology products and services, which assist consumers, companies, brands and entrepreneurs to effectively transact business, with compliance, in the combined multi-billion-dollar cannabis and CBD hemp industries. 

The Company's consumer initiatives are centered on education and connecting consumers with various cannabis and CBD hemp businesses.  Its enterprise initiatives are focused on developing technology and accounting solutions, coupled with data analytics to help businesses to be more effective in their abilities to connect, market, and sell to consumers.

Eco Science Solutions, Inc has technology and service relationships with those in farming, extraction, manufacturing and distribution in both the cannabis and CBD hemp industries.  Along with its subsidiary Ga-Du, ESSI is able to provide a 360-degree ecosystem for business location, localized communications between consumers and business operators, on-topic social networking, inventory management / selection, payment facilitation and cash management.

* Eco Science Solutions, Inc. is not in the business of growing, manufacturing, or distributing cannabis.

Financial Statements Presented

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 210 8-03 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.  Operating results for the three months ended April 30, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.  For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2019 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 7, 2020.

Principals of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Eco Science Solutions, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Ga-Du Corporation. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

ECO SCIENCE SOLUTIONS, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Three months ended April 30, 2020

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS (cont'd)

Going Concern

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated significant revenues to date and has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future.  As at April 30, 2020, the Company had a working capital deficit of $11,419,565 and an accumulated deficit of $73,221,029. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability to raise equity or debt financing, and the attainment of profitable operations from the Company's future business. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic could have an adverse impact on the Company going forward.  COVID-19 has caused significant disruptions to the global financial markets, which may severely impact the Company’s ability to raise additional capital and to pursue certain planned business activities. The Company may be required to cease operations if it is unable to finance its’ operations. The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve as of the date of this report and is highly uncertain and subject to change. Management is actively monitoring the situation but given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its operations or financial condition in the next 12 months. There are no assurances that the Company will be able to meet its obligations, raise funds or continue to implement its planned business objectives to obtain profitable operations.

The unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods shown. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

This summary of significant accounting policies is presented to assist in understanding the Company's consolidated financial statements.  These accounting policies conform to accounting principles, generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements. Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior period's consolidated financial statements to conform to the current period's presentation.

Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to long-lived assets and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company's estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

ECO SCIENCE SOLUTIONS, INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Three months ended April 30, 2020

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (cont'd)

Property and Equipment
 
Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation and amortization on property and equipment are determined using the straight-line method over the three to five year estimated useful lives of the assets.

Technology, licensing rights and software (Intangible assets)
 
Technology, licensing rights and software are recorded at cost and capitalized.  These costs are reviewed for impairment at a minimum of once per year or whenever events or changes in circumstances suggest a need for evaluation.  There is no impairment expense for the intangible assets in the three months ended April 30, 2020 or for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020.

Advertising and Marketing Costs
 
Advertising and marketing costs are expensed as incurred and were $1,590 during the three month period ended April 30, 2020 and $15,757 in the same period ended April 30, 2019. Advertising and marketing costs include ad placement and click through programs placed on a wide network of mediums acquired from advertising consolidators including Outbrain, MGID, Rev Content, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Google and others for the full scope of the Company's brands including the Herbo app and enterprise software for all platforms, GooglePlay, iOS, Android, as well as the corporate e-commence site and all the other underlying supporting social media platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Further the Company incurs other advertising expense in respect to its attendance at various venues to promote our business objectives.

Revenue Recognition

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606 — Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue from licensing agreements and contracts by applying the following steps: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to each performance obligation in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when each performance obligation is satisfied. For the comparative periods, revenue has not been adjusted and continues to be reported under ASC 605 — Revenue Recognition. Under ASC 605, revenue is recognized when the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) the performance of service has been rendered to a customer or delivery has occurred; (3) the amount of fee to be paid by a customer is fixed and determinable; and (4) the collectability of the fee is reasonably assured.

$20,226 has been recognized as revenue in the three months ended April 30, 2020, with $0 revenue in the same period ended April 30, 2019. Revenue generated under enterprise software licenses will be recorded in accordance with the terms of the individual Customer contracts.  We expect license fees will be recorded on a monthly basis over the term of the contract, activation fees will be earned upon completion of set up and installation of the enterprise software, and customization and/or professional consulting services will be earned as rendered.

While the Company has entered into an LMMA (re: Note 4) under which we are entitled to fee-based revenue on a profit-sharing basis from a financial services platform known as eXPOTM, the Company has determined that when recording its revenue, the monthly income is not clearly determinable until the fees are actually paid to the Company by AFN.  As at October 31, 2018 fees payable by AFN for the period May through October 2018 as reconciled in commission reports received from AFN have not been received by the Company. Subsequently the operations were suspended through August 2019, during which time AFN solidified its’ primary banking relationship and is now able to service and scale as needed with the client’s needs.

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (cont'd)

Revenue Recognition (cont’d)

While AFN re-commenced operating the eXPOTM platform during August 2019, Ga-Du does not yet have any additional revenue allocations.  Presently AFN is growing exclusively on a Member referral basis. We expect revenue from this agreement to resume during fiscal 2021.  The Company has determined to record its revenue in respect to the LMMA upon receipt until such time as the fee structure and reporting process become more easily determinable. Pursuant to AFN's revenue reports, the amount payable to Ga-Du Corporation is $28,431 (10% of net revenue generated by Colorado Business) at April 30, 2020 and January 31, 2020. The Company will record the revenue once we receive the proceeds.

Cost of Revenue
 
Costs of revenue consist of the direct expenses incurred to generate revenue. Such costs are recorded as incurred. Our cost of revenue will consist consists primarily of fees associated with the operation of our social media venues and fulfillment of specific customer advertising campaigns related to our downloadable apps. In the case of revenue earned by our wholly owned subsidiary, proceeds allocated to our revenue interest are net of associated costs. Costs of revenue associated with the sale of our enterprise software will include commissions and direct selling costs.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Share-Based Payments, using the fair value method. All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. Equity instruments issued to employees and the cost of the services received as consideration are measured and recognized based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued.

Convertible Debt and Beneficial Conversion Features
 
The Company evaluates embedded conversion features within convertible debt under ASC 815 "Derivatives and Hedging" to determine whether the embedded conversion feature(s) should be bifurcated from the host instrument and accounted for as a derivative at fair value with changes in fair value recorded in earnings. If the conversion feature does not require derivative treatment under ASC 815, the instrument is evaluated under ASC 470-20 "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" for consideration of any beneficial conversion features.

Stock Settled Debt
 
In certain instances, the Company will issue convertible notes which contain a provision in which the price of the conversion feature is priced at a fixed discount to the trading price of the Company's common shares as traded in the over-the-counter market.  In these instances, the Company records a liability, in addition to the principal amount of the convertible note, as stock-settled debt for the fixed value transferred to the convertible note holder from the fixed discount conversion feature.  As of April 30, 2020, and January 31, 2020, $248,432 for the value of the stock settled debt for certain convertible notes is included in the Convertible note, net account under balance sheet. (see Note 10).

Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

The Company computes net income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earning per Share.  ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing Diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements
 
The Company has reviewed other recently issued accounting pronouncements and plans to adopt those that are applicable to it. The Company does not expect the adoption of any other pronouncements to have an impact on its results of operations or financial position.

NOTE 4: LICENSE AND MASTER MARKETING AGREEMENT

During fiscal 2018 the Company’s subsidiary Ga-Du entered into an Assignment Agreement with G&L Enterprises, wherein G&L Enterprises assigned to Ga-Du Corporation, all of its rights, interest in, and obligations under a License and Master Marketing Agreement (LMMA) it entered into with Alliance Financial Network, Inc. ("AFN").

AFN provides financial and enterprise services to businesses and individuals, including the cannabis industry, on a programmatic or membership basis from which AFN derives fees and income from enrolling companies in their financial program and providing a range of services, with respect to which AFN and Ga-Du derive fees and income on a fee based schedule.

The primary focus of AFN is a mobile application known as eXPO™ electronic eXchange Portal which provides virtual financial and enterprise services to businesses and individuals that are challenged in the traditional banking systems, and/or require more intensive compliance than banks are willing, or able to perform and/or do not have the technical expertise or financial wherewithal in house to develop their own FinTech solutions, including accounting and enterprise management software.  One such industry is the cannabis industry where AFN establishes Membership relationships with businesses in this industry, following a full compliance audit on the business. These services utilize the Herbo suite of software to effectively track transactional data for eXPO™ users, providing Ga-Du a share of all Cannabis related revenues received by AFN regardless of the source of revenues through (i) membership fees; (ii) cash depository fees; (iii) merchant processing and credit card fees; (iv) transfer fees; and (v) advertising fees.

AFN’s services operate on a national level with sales in both cannabis and non-cannabis-based industries.  While revenues allocated to Ga-Du are currently governed on a territory by territory basis, Ga-Du and AFN are actively negotiating an amendment to the agreements to become all inclusive.

In exchange for the revenue split under the LMMA, as amended in March 2018, Ga-Du agreed to pay to AFN $405,000 in three tranches for operational expenses and business development.

Under the terms of the aforementioned agreements with respect to a beta trial for the AFN services focused solely on the State of Colorado during the period May through October 31, 2018, $28,431 is payable to Ga-Du from revenue generated by operations on the eXPOTM platform.

Description of Business

The Company was incorporated in the state of Nevada on December 8, 2009 under the name Pristine Solutions, Inc.  On February 14, 2014, the Company changed its name to Eco Science Solutions, Inc. ("ESSI")

With headquarters in Maui, Hawaii, Eco Science Solutions, Inc. is a bio and software technology-focused Company targeting the multibillion-dollar health and wellness industry. As consumers continue to take ownership of their health, wellness and alternative medicines they consume, there is a growing shift away from the sole dependence on large pharmaceutical companies and prescription drugs.  Thus, in 2020 and beyond, there will be a growing need for both established and new health and wellness businesses to address this increasing demand. In recent years the Company has changed the focus of its original strategy from App based revenue to revenue generated from several key operational areas, including the licensed Herbo Enterprise Software.  Herbo is a customizable, all-in-one business software (SaaS) and resource for businesses in the Cannabis and Hemp industries. Herbo provides the software, custom web development, operational training and support needed to plan and manage Marijuana or CBD businesses. The software has provided businesses with intelligence software for over 15 years, while offering seed-to-sale software solutions to the Cannabis and Hemp industries since 2010.

Cultivators, Processors, Manufacturers, Labs, Distributors, Transporters, Dispensaries, Retailers and Regulators, from seed-to-CPA are all target users of Herbo.

The Company intends to be a vertically integrated provider of consumer and enterprise technology products and services, which assist consumers, companies, brands and entrepreneurs to effectively transact business, with compliance, in the combined multi-billion-dollar cannabis and CBD hemp industries. 

The Company's consumer initiatives are currently centered on education and connecting consumers with various cannabis and CBD hemp businesses.  Its enterprise initiatives are focused on developing technology and accounting solutions, coupled with data analytics to help businesses to be more effective in their abilities to connect, market, and sell to consumers.

Over the past several years, ESSI has developed technology and service relationships with those in farming, extraction, manufacturing and distribution in both the cannabis and CBD hemp industries.  Along with its subsidiary Ga-Du, ESSI is now able to provide a 360-degree ecosystem for business location, localized communications between consumers and business operators, on-topic social networking, inventory management / selection, payment facilitation and cash management.

* Eco Science Solutions, Inc. is not in the business of growing, manufacturing, or distributing cannabis.

Current business overview

Our business operations commenced generating modest revenues subsequent to our fiscal year ended January 31, 2018 and up to the period ended October 31, 2018, when the initial phase of our eXPOTM beta revenue model testing were complete. Subsequently the operations were suspended through August 2019, during which time AFN solidified its’ primary banking relationship and is now able to service and scale as needed with the client’s needs. While AFN re-commenced operating the eXPOTM platform during August 2019, Ga-Du does not yet have any additional revenue allocations. Presently AFN is growing exclusively on a Member referral basis. We expect revenue from this agreement to resume during fiscal 2021. During fiscal 2020 we took steps to shift our focus to monetizing our Herbo branded apps and recently developed enterprise software to assist companies in the cannabis industry to simplify their processes, remain compliant, and enjoy steady growth. 

During fiscal 2020 the Company and Haiku Holdings LLC ("Haiku"), a company controlled by our CFO and board member, Mr. Mike Rountree, entered into a Trademark Licensing Agreement whereunder our Licensed Marks, including and incorporating Herbo, may be used by Haiku to facilitate business including lead generation and referral services. Subsequently our agreements with Haiku were expanded to include a Software Reseller Agreement with respect to the Herbo suite of enterprise software offerings owned by Haiku.  Under the terms of our Reseller agreements with Haiku we commenced generating revenues from licensing of the Herbo software during fiscal 2020 and continue to seek expansion of this growing area of operation during fiscal 2021.

Revenue recorded during the most recently completed three-month period relates directly to the licensing of the Herbo enterprise software to various customers. We entered into amendments to certain licensing and marketing agreements subsequent during fiscal 2019 which provide for fee-based income calculated retroactively between March and October 2018 as a result of certain beta trials with respect to the eXPOTM platform, as at January 31, 2020 and 2019, the amounts generated from this agreement have not been received by the Company and therefore while revenue has been generated, no revenue has been recorded in our financial statements.  We intend to record the revenue attributable to the Company of $28,431 upon receipt.

General and administrative expenses, exclusive of $1,590 (2019 - $15,757) expended on advertising and marketing in the three-month period ended April 30, 2020 of $128,781 ($438,410- 2019), include a gain related to management and consulting fees of $5,000 in the current three month period due to a credit related to certain prior accrued fees for consulting services in the amount of $90,000, as compared to $291,000 in the comparative three months ended April 30, 2019.  This decrease to management fees, aside from the current period credit for prior accrued fees, is a direct result of the departure of certain consultants during fiscal 2020, and the Company’s determination not to renew certain contracts on their expiry. The decline in advertising and marketing fees period over period is directly related to a reduction of advertising expenses paid to Yahoo as the Company has refocused its marketing efforts on its licensed Herbo enterprise software suite through a reseller agreement and curtailed its app marketing expenses during the current three-month period.  During the current three months the Company recorded costs of revenue of $13,522 compared to $Nil in the prior comparative three-month period as we were able to expand our customer base for our licensed Herbo Enterprise Software.  Legal, accounting and audit fees incurred in the three-month period ended April 30, 2020 of  $35,106 have also decreased substantially as compared to $77,714 in the prior comparative period as the Company's legal fees with respect to certain ongoing litigation declined in the current period as legal actions are moving to settlement.   The Company expended $35,052 on research, development and promotion in the current three months ended April 30, 2020 as we continued improvements to our licensed Herbo enterprise software as compared to $19,764 in the same three months ended April 30, 2019.  Office supplies and other general expenses remained relatively constant period over period and totaled $48,996 (2020) and $48,826 (2019), respectively.

The Company reduced its operating expenses by $323,796 over the respective three-month periods ended April 30, 2020 and 2019.

The Company recorded interest expense of $62,802 and $60,288 in respect of certain convertible notes and other loan agreements, respectively during the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019.  Interest income recorded in the three months ended April 30, 202 and 2019 totaled $Nil and $3,000, respectively.

The net loss in the comparative three month periods ended April 30, 2020 and 2019 totaled $172,947 and $511,455, respectively.

Plan of Operation

The Company changed the focus of its business at the close of fiscal 2016 to operate in the ecofriendly technology sector using social media sites and offering apps to generate advertising revenues and download fees. During fiscal 2017 the Company laid the groundwork for income generation from these services by investing in ongoing development of its applications, websites and visibility in both the local and global market.  The Company has invested heavily in advertising and research and development to allow its applications and ecommerce website visibility on a global stage. During fiscal 2018 we further added to our business portfolio with the acquisition of Ga-Du corporation and the entry into a licensing and marketing agreement that should see the Company generating revenues in fiscal 2019.  During fiscal 2019, the Company licensed the Herbo Enterprise Software suite and completed certain customization efforts, which has allowed the Company to commence generating revenue by way of sales of software licenses during fiscal 2020 and during the current three months ended April 30, 2020.  The Company's need for ongoing capital by way of loans, sale of equity and/or convertible notes is expected to continue during the current fiscal year until we can establish substantive revenues from operations. We have also had to rely heavily on loans from related parties in our most recently completed fiscal year as we work to have our shares returned for quotation to the OTCMarkets. There are no assurances additional capital will be available to the Company on acceptable terms or that this equity line will be available to us when needed.

Future funding could result in potentially dilutive issuances of equity securities, the incurrence of debt, contingent liabilities and/or amortization expenses related to goodwill and other intangible assets, which could materially adversely affect the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition. Any future funding might require the Company to obtain additional equity or debt financing, which might not be available on terms favorable to the Company, or at all, and such financing, if available, might be dilutive.

Going Concern

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated significant revenues to date and has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future.  As at April 30, 2020, the Company had a working capital deficit of $11,419,565 and an accumulated deficit of $73,221,029. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability to raise equity or debt financing, and the attainment of profitable operations from the Company's future business. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic could have an adverse impact on the Company going forward.  COVID-19 has caused significant disruptions to the global financial markets, which may severely impact the Company’s ability to raise additional capital and to pursue certain planned business activities. The Company may be required to cease operations if it is unable to finance its’ operations. The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve as of the date of this report and is highly uncertain and subject to change. Management is actively monitoring the situation but given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company is not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on its operations or financial condition in the next 12 months. There are no assurances that the Company will be able to meet its obligations, raise funds or continue to implement its planned business objectives to obtain profitable operations.

The unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods shown. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of April 30, 2020, the Company had total current assets of $55,072, and total current liabilities of $11,474,637 as compared to $59,310 in current assets and $11,307,033 in total current liabilities at the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020. The Company has limited financial resources available outside loans from its officers and directors and funds it has obtained through use of convertible notes and loans from related parties.  We have recently commenced generating revenue from the licensing of our Herbo Enterprise Software, however, these revenues are not yet sufficient to meet our ongoing operational overhead. While the Company entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement to sell up to 10,000,000 shares of our common stock (Ref: Note 12(b)) to the financial statements contained herein) we have been unable to obtain any funding under this agreement in the most recently completed fiscal year. There can be no guarantee the Company will receive proceeds from loans, related party advances or convertible notes sufficient to meet its ongoing operational overheads.  While we have generated modest revenue in fiscal 2020 and in the current quarter from the Herbo Enterprise Software, as well as $28,431 during fiscal 2019 relative to Ga-Du’s agreements with AFN, which will be recorded when received from our licensing partner, we do not yet have resources to meet our operational shortfalls.  Without realization of additional capital, it would be unlikely for the Company to continue as a going concern. As noted, additional working capital may be sought through additional debt or equity private placements, additional notes payable to banks or related parties (officers, directors or stockholders), or from other available funding sources at market rates of interest, or a combination of these. The ability to raise necessary financing will depend on many factors, including the nature and prospects of any business to be acquired and the economic and market conditions prevailing at the time financing is sought. During the most recently completed fiscal year management has obtained additional funding with success, however there is no guarantee we will be able to continue to obtain financing if and when required. The current economic downturn and ongoing impact of COVID-19 may make it difficult to find new capital sources for the Company should they be required. 

Cash flows from operating activities

During the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019 the Company used $117,080 and $199,332 of cash for operating activities respectively. The decrease in cash used in operating activities period over period is attributed to a reduction to the net loss reported in the three months ended April 30, 2020 as compared to the same three months in 2019. Current period results include an increase to related party payables of $63,225 as compared to $166,233 in the same three-month period in 2019, and a decrease to accounts payable of $12,275 in the current three months as compared to an increase of $162,784 in the period ended April 30, 2019.  This is primarily due to the settlement of certain prior accrued consulting fees at a discount to the originally recorded contract value.  The Company recorded a an increase to prepaid expenses of $15,000 and an increase to interest receivable during the three months ended April 30, 2019, with no comparable results during the current three months ended April 30, 2020.  Finally we recorded an decrease to accounts receivable in the current three months ended April 30, 2020 of $9,206 and an increase to related party receivables of $5,394 with no comparable results during the current three months ended April 30, 2019.

Cash flows from investing activities

During the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company used no cash for investing activities.

Cash flows from financing activities

During the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019 the Company repaid $5,000 and $Nil of notes payable.  Further during the current three months ended April 30, 2020 the Company received related party loans of $121,654 as compared to $200,258 in the prior comparative three months ended April 30, 2019.

Future Financings

We anticipate continuing to rely on related party and third-party loans and equity sales of our common shares and/or shares for services rendered in order to continue to fund our business operations in the event of ongoing operational shortfalls. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to our existing shareholders. There is no assurance that we will achieve any of additional sales of our equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund our research and development activities.

(4) On February 1, 2019, the lead plaintiff, Mr. Richard Raschke, a purported shareholder of the Company, filed an amended consolidated class action complaint against the Company, the Taylors, and Mr. Gannon Giguiere in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (the "Class Action"). The Class Action arises out of alleged materially false and misleading statements or omissions from SEC filings and/or public statements by or  on  behalf  of Company. The Class Action asserts claims against all defendants for violation of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Act"), violation of Section 20(a) of the Act against the Taylors and Giguiere and Violation of Section 20(b) against Mr. Giguiere. The Class Action seeks (1) certification of the purported class of plaintiffs, (2) compensatory damages in favor of the class and (3) an award of reasonable costs and expenses. Defendants have moved to stay this action.  By consent of the parties, the Court has agreed to suspend this matter pending resolution of the consolidated derivative action in Hawaii.

(5) Although the following lawsuit was not filed against the Company or any of its officers or directors, it nonetheless has a huge impact on the Company. On July 6, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") filed a Complaint against Gannon Giguiere ("Giguiere"), president of Phenix Ventures, LLC and the Company's largest outside funder. The Complaint alleges Mr. Giguiere's involvement in certain activities, of which the Company, its' officers, board members, and others directly involved with the Company, have no knowledge of. The Complaint seeks monetary and injunctive relief. On October 24, 2018, the Court granted the U.S. Government's motion to intervene in the proceedings and stay the action pending resolution of parallel criminal proceedings (described below). Pursuant to the Complaint being filed, the Company continues to seek funding elsewhere as it requires outside funding until it generates more consistent revenue. The Company previously filed an S-1 Registration Statement whereby Phenix would fund the Company in exchange for shares of common stock, and upon Put Notices; to date, there have been no Put Notices and no funds from Phenix Ventures have been distributed to the Company under the registration statement - no shares have been issued pursuant to the Registration Statement.

(6) On June 29, 2018, the United States Government filed an indictment as to Gannon Giguiere in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. In a Superseding Indictment, filed on January 25, 2019, the United States alleges that the defendant engaged in a scheme to manipulate the market for the common stock of two penny stock issuers, including ESSI.  The United States claims that Mr. Giguiere is guilty of (1) conspiracy to commit securities fraud and manipulative trading and (2) securities fraud.  On April 22, 2019, Mr. Giguiere entered a plea of not guilty to each of the counts against him in the Superseding Indictment.   On July 23, 2019, defendant entered into a Plea Agreement (the “Plea”) with the Government wherein defendant plead guilty to one charge of conspiracy.  Under the Plea, the Government agreed to dismiss and to not prosecute in the future, the remaining charges including, but not limited to, all charges relating to ESSI when defendant is sentenced.  The sentencing hearing is currently set for September 21, 2020.

(7) On September 10, 2018 the Company received a Letter of Summons and Notice of Complaint from Wendy Maguire, Vice President of Business Development for Ga Du Corporation, filed in the United States District Court from the Western District of Washington on September 4, 2018 and naming the Company, its subsidiary Ga Du Corporation and two of the Company's officers as Defendants. The Claims filed under the Complaint include payment of accrued and unpaid wages, legal fees and damages.  The Company has filed its Answer.  Plaintiff filed a Motion for Summary Judgment on March 14, 2019 on her statutory claim for unpaid wages and on her claim for breach of employment contract.  The motion has been fully briefed.  On May 13, 2020, plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment as to the personal liability of corporate officers of ESSI and Ga-Du under the Washington Wage Rebate Act was Granted. Corporate officers of ESSI  and its subsidiary Ga-Du are jointly and severally liable (along with ESSI and its wholly-owned subsidiary Ga-Du) for $240,000 in unpaid wages, another $240,000 in exemplary damages, attorney’s fees, and prejudgment interest. Defendants’ cross-motions regarding personal liability was denied.

The Company is vigorously defending all of the aforementioned lawsuits where the action has yet to be adjudicated, dismissed or judgement entered. The successful defense of any of the outstanding lawsuits is undeterminable at this time, as are the extent of any possible damages.

Other than as set out above, the Company knows of no material, existing or pending legal proceedings against it, nor is the Company involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation. There are no proceedings in which its director, officer or any affiliates, or any registered or beneficial shareholder, is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to its interest.
