Note 9 Derivative Liabilities
The Company applies the accounting standard that provides guidance for determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument, or embedded feature, is indexed to an entitys own stock. The standard applies to any freestanding financial instrument or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entitys own common stock.
The Company has estimated the fair value of these embedded conversion features to settle outstanding contracts using Black-Scholes using the following assumptions:
· Expected volatility is based primarily on historical volatility of the Company. Historical volatility was computed using weekly pricing observations for recent periods. The Company believes this method produces an estimate that is representative of our expectations of future volatility over the expected term of these warrants and embedded conversion features. The Company currently have no reason to believe that future volatility over the expected remaining life of these embedded conversion features is likely to differ materially from historical volatility.
· The expected life is based on the remaining term of the warrants and embedded conversion features.
· The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury securities consistent with the remaining term of the embedded conversion features.
During the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company issued an aggregate of $130,000 in principal of convertible notes payable at an interest rate of 8% (See Note 6). Such convertible notes contained embedded conversion features in the Companys own stock and have resulted in an initial derivative liability value of $73,000 and a debt discount of $73,000 being recorded by the Company.
During the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company recorded other income of $8,000, related to the change in fair value of the embedded conversion features which is included in change in fair value of derivative liabilities in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
