3DIcon CORPORATION

(A Development Stage Company)

 

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1 – Uncertainties and Use of Estimates

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying financial statements of 3DIcon Corporation (the “Company”) have been prepared without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's year-end audited financial statements and related footnotes included in the previously filed 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2012, and the statements of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, and the period from inception (January 1, 2001) to March 31, 2012, and cash flows for the three month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, and the period from inception (January 1, 2001) to March 31, 2012, have been included. The results of operations for interim periods may not be indicative of the results which may be realized for the full year.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from the estimates and assumptions used.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenues from software license fees are accounted for in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 985-605, “Software Revenue Recognition”.  The Company recognizes revenue when (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (ii) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable; and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Grant revenue is recognized when earned.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Based on management's assessment no new accounting standards, if adopted, would have a material impact on the accompanying financial statements.

 

Uncertainties

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.  The Company is in the development stage and has insufficient revenue and capital commitments to fund the development of its planned product and to pay operating expenses.

 

The Company has realized a cumulative net loss of $16,798,827 for the period from inception (January 1, 2001) to March 31, 2012, and a net loss of $377,707 and $356,608 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern during the next year depends on the successful completion of the Company's capital raising efforts to fund the development of its planned products.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Management plans to fund the future operations of the Company with existing cash, grants and investor funding. Under the terms of the Golden State debentures, as further described in Note 4, Golden State may advance an additional $378,787.  The additional advance would be available if the Company filed a registration statement; however, the Company does not plan to file such registration statement. In addition, pursuant to the 4.75% Convertible Debenture due in December 2014, beginning in November 2007, Golden State is obligated to submit conversion notices in an amount such that Golden State receives 1% of the outstanding shares of the Company every calendar quarter for a period of one year.  In connection with each conversion, Golden State is expected to exercise warrants equal to ten times the amount of principal converted.  The warrants are exercisable at $10.90 per share.  The number of warrants exercisable is subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations contained in the 4.75% Convertible Debenture (“the Beneficial Ownership Limitations”).  The Beneficial Ownership Limitations prevent Golden State from converting on the 4.75% Convertible Debenture or exercising warrants if such conversion or exercise would cause Golden State’s holdings to exceed 9.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock.  Subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitations, Golden State is required to convert $3,000 of the 4.75% Convertible Debenture and exercise 30,000 warrants per month.  Based upon our current stock price, our issued and outstanding shares as of March 31, 2012 and ignoring the impact of the Beneficial Ownership Limitations, the Company may receive up to $981,000 in funding from Golden State as a result of warrant exercises during the year ended December 31, 2012. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company received $364,780 in funding under the terms of the 4.75% Convertible Debenture (see Note 4). 

 

F-6
 

 

The Company was approved for a matching grant from Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (“OCAST”) on November 19, 2008 in the amount of approximately $300,000.  There remains $51,836 of grant funds to be provided through the end of the grant period, August 31, 2012.  (see Note 3)

 

Additionally, the Company is continuing to pursue financing through private offerings of debt or common stock.

 

Note 2 – Sponsored Research Agreement ("SRA") Common Stock Subject to Put Rights and Call Right

 

Since April 20, 2002, the Company has entered into a number of Sponsored Research Agreements with the University of Oklahoma (“OU”) as follows:

 

Phase I: “Pilot Study to Investigate Digital Holography”, April 20, 2004. The Company paid OU $14,116.

 

Phase II: “Investigation of 3-Dimensional Display Technologies”, April 15, 2005, as amended. The Company paid OU $528,843.

 

Phase III: “3-Dimensional Display Development”. The Company made partial payment to OU by issuing 4,264,707 shares with a market price of $290,000 on October 14, 2008 and final payment on December 1, 2010 in the amount of $525,481 of which $40,481 was in cash and 59 million shares of Company stock (the “Shares”). The Shares are subject to an OU ‘put’ right and a 3Dicon ‘call’ right.

 

OU “Put” Rights on the Shares

 

First “put” period: December 1, 2012 to November 31, 2013. If the Shares (held plus previously sold) are valued at less than $100,000 then OU can “put” one-tenth of the Shares for $50,000 plus accrued interest retroactive to December 1, 2012 less the value of sold shares.

 

Second “put” period: December 1, 2013 to November 31, 2014. If the Shares (held & previously sold) are valued at less than $970,000 then OU can “put” the remaining Shares for $485,000 plus accrued interest retroactive to December 1, 2012 less the value of shares previously sold or redeemed during the first “put”.

 

3DIcon “Call” Rights on the Shares

 

Commencing December 1, 2012, the Company shall have the right to “call” the Shares for an amount equal to $970,000 less the amount (if any) of prior Shares by OU including amounts “put” to 3DIcon.

 

The Company has presented the Shares outside of deficit in the mezzanine section of the balance sheets, as the Agreement includes put rights, which are not solely within the control of the Company.

 

The Agreement also amended the existing agreements between the Company and OU such that all intellectual property, including all inventions and or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, developed before July 28, 2008 by OU under the SRA is owned by OU. All intellectual property, including all inventions and/or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, developed jointly by the Company and OU at any time is jointly owned by the Company and OU. Finally, all intellectual property developed by the Company after July 28, 2008, including all inventions and or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, is owned by the Company.   

 

Note 3 – OCAST Grant

 

The Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology approved the Company’s application for funding of a matching grant titled 800 Million Voxels Volumetric Display, on November 19, 2008.  The two-year matching grant, totaling $299,932, had a start date of January 1, 2009.  The Company received approval for our no cost extension request for the first year of the contract. With the new modification, the first year ended on August 31, 2010.  The award is for a maximum of $149,940 for 2009 and the remainder for 2011.  The Company earned 52,649 and $30,000 from the grant during the three-month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively and $270,473 from inception to date.  The Company received approval for our no cost extension request for the second year of the contract and, with the new modification, the second year ends on August 31, 2012.

 

During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company charged operations $4,890 and $8,456, respectively, pursuant to the direct costs incurred and for the use of the OU lab facilities in regard to the OCAST grant.

6.25% Convertible Debenture due December 31, 2014

 

On November 21, 2007, the Company issued and sold a convertible note in the principal amount of $1,250,000 to Golden State (the "Debenture"). Pursuant to the terms of the Debenture, Golden State may, at its election, convert all or a part of the Debenture into shares of the Company's common stock at a conversion rate equal to the lesser of (i) $2.00 or (ii) 90% of the average of the five lowest volume weighted average prices during the twenty trading days prior to Golden State's election to convert, subject to adjustment as provided in the Debenture. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Debenture, the Company agreed to file a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion or redemption of the Debenture. The Company filed a registration statement covering the shares to be issued upon conversion of the Debenture. Included in the registration statement were 4.25 million shares issuable on the Debenture based on 2007 market prices and assuming full conversion of the convertible debenture. The registration statement became effective on January 4, 2008.

 

Golden State advanced $125,000 on the $1.25 million Debenture on November 9, 2007 and $746,213 in January 2008 at which time the Company placed 7,961,783 shares of common stock in escrow to be released as debentures are converted. As of September 30, 2011, Golden State has funded an aggregate of $871,213 on the Debenture. Golden State will be obligated to fund the Company for the remaining $378,787 in principal on the Debenture upon the effectiveness of a registration statement underlying the remaining unfunded principal balance on the Debenture. At this time, the Company has not filed a registration statement. At various dates during 2010, $274,438 of the Debenture was converted into 93,196,578 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.0027 to $0.004 based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally shares totaling 6,093,396 were issued in payment of $17,062 of accrued interest during 2010. At various dates during 2011, $157,331 of the Debenture was converted into 16,156,404 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.0059 to $0.0174 based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally $12,669 was added to the principle balance of the debenture in payment of accrued interest during 2011.

 

The conversion price for the $1.25 million Debenture is the lesser of (i) $2.00 or (ii) 90% of the average of the five lowest volume weighted average prices during the twenty (20) trading days prior to the conversion.  If Golden State elects to convert a portion of the debenture and, on the day that the election is made, the volume weighted average price is below $0.75, the Company shall have the right to prepay that portion of the debenture that Golden State elected to convert, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, at 135% of such amount.

 

In addition to standard default provisions concerning timeliness of payments, delivery and notifications, the Second Debenture will be in default if the common stock of the Company trades at a price per share of $0.21 or lower, regardless of whether the trading price subsequently is higher than $0.21 per share. The trading price was at $0.21 or lower on several occasions during and subsequent to the period ended March 31, 2012. On each of the occasions Golden State, by separate letter agreements, agreed that the occasions did not constitute a default and thereby waived the default provision for those occasions only.  (See Note 9 Subsequent Events) 

 

4.75% Convertible Debenture due November 3, 2011

 

 On November 3, 2006, the Company also issued to Golden State a 4.75% convertible debenture in a principal amount of $100,000, due 2011, and warrants to buy 1,000,000 shares of the common stock at an exercise price of $10.90 per share. Under the terms of the debenture, warrants are exercised in an amount equal to ten times the dollar amount of the debenture conversion. During 2010, Golden State converted $4,752 of the $100,000 debenture into 162,454,399 shares of common stock, exercised warrants to purchase 47,523 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share and advanced $251,489 against future exercises of warrants of which $300,000 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $-0- of unapplied advances at December 31, 2010. During 2011, Golden State converted $6,760 of the $100,000 debenture into 60,601,868, shares of common stock, exercised warrants to purchase 67,600 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally Golden Gate advanced $753,381 against future exercises of warrants of which $736,840 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $16,542 of unapplied advances at December 31, 2011. During 2012, Golden State converted $1,663 of the $100,000 debenture into 25,049,954 shares of common stock, exercised warrants to purchase 16,635 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally Golden Gate advanced $364,781 against future exercises of warrants of which $181,322 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $200,001 of unapplied advances at March 31, 2012.

 

The conversion price for the 4.75% $100,000 convertible debenture is the lesser of (i) $4.00 or (ii) 80% of the average of the five lowest volume weighted average prices during the twenty (20) trading days prior to the conversion. If Golden State elects to convert a portion of the debenture and, on the day that the election is made, the volume weighted average price is below $0.75, the Company shall have the right to prepay that portion of the debenture that Golden State elected to convert, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, at 135% of such amount.

Common stock and options issued for services and liabilities

 

During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, shares of common stock totaling 7,437,643, and 2,500,000, respectively were issued for consulting services for which the Company recognized $42,100 and $24,425 of expense, respectively.  Additionally, during the period ending March 31, 2012 and 2011, shares totaling 3,213,589 and 33,338,612, respectively were issued to consultants for previous services provided to the Company for which the accounts payable liability was reduced by $36,764 and 79,871, respectively.  Shares totaling 57,000,000, which are restricted under SEC Section 144, were issued in the first quarter of 2011 in payment of accrued salaries and payroll taxes totaling $460,405 due Martin Keating, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Hakki Refai, Chief Technology Officer and Judith Keating the Secretary of the Company. 

 

On March 13, 2012, 3DIcon Corporation entered into a one (1) year Agreement for At-Will Employment with Assignment of Inventions (“Employment Agreement”) with Mark Willner, pursuant to which Mr. Willner began serving as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Under the terms of the Employment Agreement, Mr. Willner is entitled to an annual base salary of $180,000, and, at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors, performance-based bonuses and/or salary increases. Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, the Company granted Mr. Willner five-year stock options to purchase two (2) million shares at a price equal to the average price of the five day period prior to March 19, 2012 (the “Strike Price”) which was $0.01. Furthermore, if Mr. Willner remains employed by the Company at the end of each quarter ending June 30, 2012, September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2012, he will receive additional stock options to purchase one (1) million shares at the $0.01 Strike Price. In addition, if the Company has achieved certain quarterly business objectives, Mr. Willner will receive, at the end of each such quarterly periods, a further grant of stock options to purchase one (1) million shares at the Strike Price. The estimated fair value of the two million options of $18,840, was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and was charged to operations in March 2012. The expected dividend yield of $-0- is based on the average annual dividend yield as of the grant date. Expected volatility of 163% is based on the historical volatility of the stock since July 25, 2007, the day the Company began trading on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board. The risk-free interest rate of 1.87% is based on the U.S. Treasury Constant Maturity rates as of the grant date. The expected life of the option of five years is based on historical exercise behavior and expected future experience.

 

The Employment Agreement may be terminated with or without reason by either the Company or Mr. Willner and at any time, upon sixty (60) days written notice. The terms of the Employment Agreement will remain effective for one (1) year and will automatically renew, subject to the same termination rights. Upon termination, the Company will pay any base pay, bonus and benefits that have been earned and are due as of the date of the termination.

Reverse Stock Split

 

On April 27, 2012, 3DIcon Corporation, an Oklahoma corporation filed an Amended Certificate of Incorporation to effect a 1-for-35 reverse split of the Company’s common stock.

On April 27, 2012, the effective date, every 35 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock were combined into one share of common stock. The Company did not issue any fractional shares in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record who otherwise would have been entitled to receive fractional shares will be entitled, upon surrender to our transfer agent of certificates representing such shares, cash in lieu thereof.

The trading price was at $0.21 or lower on several occasions during the period ended March 31, 2012 and subsequent to March 31, 2012.  On each of the occasions Golden State, by letter agreements, agreed that the occasions did not constitute a default and thereby waived the default provision for the occasions.

 

Subsequent to March 31, 2012 Golden State advanced $100,000 of warrant exercise advances on the 4.75% convertible debenture.

 

Common stock issued for services and liabilities

Plan of Operation

 

Background:

 

The Company initially engaged in the development of 360° volumetric imaging and display technology, specifically in the areas identified by the initial in-depth investigation conducted by the University. The identified areas are two major complementary areas of technology that comprise the spectrum of the solution and application (1) a means of recording 3D objects as digital holographic data elements (capture); and (2) a means of reconstructing and displaying the 3D images (display).

 

Based on the investigation as well as review of existing patents and technologies, it was concluded that the area of 3D image capture and recording had multiple solutions and technologies that adequately served the market. As a result, our focus narrowed to developing 3D display technologies, intellectual property protecting those technologies and products that incorporate those technologies. We also plan to 1) establish strategic partnerships with the owners or licensees of certain existing 3D recording technologies and 2) as appropriate integrate our technologies and/or products into existing industry specific system level products.

 

The 3D display technologies surveyed to date can be divided into two broad categories based on usage paradigm and implementation. The first category is flat panel-based 3D displays that includes current stereoscopic (glasses required) 3D TVs and emerging auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free) displays that are currently very expensive and low quality. The second category is 3D volumetric displays that afford users a 360-degree view unlike the flat panel displays in the first category. Our CSpace technology is in this second category and is a better fit and more advantaged for certain applications mentioned earlier. Volumetric 3D displays appear to offer many opportunities for further technology development and intellectual property creation by our staff and the University to which 3DIcon would have exclusive rights.

 

The research team at OU has been working to integrate open source image capture applications as well as to establish 3D image capture systems.

 

We continue to build intellectual property through our staff and the University, to which the Company has exclusive rights and engage in research and development in the area of 3D displays as well as certain related technologies.

 

The Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology approved the Company's application for funding of a matching grant titled "800 Million Voxels Volumetric Display," on November 19, 2008. The two-year matching grant, totaling $299,932, has a start date of January 1, 2009. We received approval for a no cost modification request, which extended the first year of the contract to August 31, 2010. In addition, the Company received approval for a second year no cost modification request, which extended the second year of the contract to August 31, 2012. In connection with the grant, the Company received (i) $35,139 during 2009; (ii) $96,362 during 2010; (iii) $86,323 during 2011; and $217,824 from inception to date.

 

Current Activities and Operations

 

The Company is developing the CSpace 3D volumetric display technology and plans to develop a Trade-Show Prototype (“TSP”), after the successful development of a 2nd generation proof-of-concept (laboratory prototype 2) through the Sponsored Research Agreement (the “SRA”) with the University of Oklahoma.  As currently envisioned, the TSP will be a single-color CSpace display featuring an 8”x8”x4” liquid image volume enclosed in a 15” glass dome, continuously viewable over 360’ and from the top in moderately-bright room lighting (satisfying the requirements of ISO 9241-303) without operational safety controls (e.g., goggles or stand-off barrier). The Company recently completed a technical evaluation of the CSpace 3D volumetric display technology and the TSP by outside technical experts including Dr. George Melnik, now a Senior Technical Advisor with the Company. These experts validated the viability of the CSpace technology and the technical feasibility of the TSP. Under Dr. Melnik’s direction, the Company is developing a second higher performance laboratory prototype that will further prove and de-risk the CSpace technology as well as pave the way for more rapid development of the TSP.

On June 13, 2011, the Company hired CEO Sidney Aroesty, with leadership and experience in building successful public companies, to evaluate the capabilities of the Company and to field the most capable management team to develop the TSP.   As part of this process, Dr. Brian Hoover, CEO of AOT, was retained from February through December 2011 as 3DIcon’s VP of Technology Development, to plan the technologies and other resources for the initial development and commercialization of CSpace.  As part of that effort, the Company engaged a team of consultants including an optical engineer, a system engineer, computer graphics specialists, and a mechanical engineer to develop a proposed TSP architecture, conduct computer-based modeling and simulation, design and construct a physical laser and materials test-bed at the OU Tulsa laboratory, develop an online program-management system, identify required resources, and help define potential commercialization paths.

 

On March 19, 2012 the Company announced that Sidney Aroesty would join the Board of Directors and appointed display industry veteran Mark Willner as CEO. Mr. Willner has 30 years of product development, product commercialization, sales, entrepreneurial, and executive experience in the display industry. 

 

Working closely with Mr. Willner and the Company’s Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Dr. Hakki Refai, will be Dr. George Melnik, 3DIcon’s new Senior Technical Advisor.  Dr. Melnik has had a long career in display technology commercialization, including positions at General Electric where he played a key role in the pioneering of active matrix displays (now used in everything from mobile phones to televisions) and at Phillips Electronics, where he was the technical lead in the development of the first scrolling color rear projection television system.

 

Progress on Research and Development Activities

 

The research team at OU filed two new patent applications in the first quarter of 2008 and converted one from a provisional to a utility filing.

 

Under the aegis of the SRA, the University has filed the following patent applications. The utility patents have been converted and consolidated from the previously filed provisional applications.

Further, we are taking steps to explore areas that may be related to assist in the protection of intellectual property assets. In addition, we have begun the process of applying for trademarks related to our 3D technologies.

 

The primary technical objective for 2012 is to develop higher performance next generation prototypes (laboratory and tradeshow) of the CSpace single-color display that will de-risk and further validate the CSpace technology. The work will primarily be done by the Company, professional consultants, and potential strategic partners:

 

I. Static Volumetric Display Technology (“CSpace®™”)

 

  · Design and construct a second generation laboratory prototype (Lab Proto 2)
  · Initial development of third generation laboratory / tradeshow prototypes with a strategic partner
  · Initial development and validation of improved CSpace architectures

  · Identification, evaluation & development support for higher efficiency materials & lasers

 

II. By-Product Technologies

 

  · Continue to generate revenue from the sales of our Pixel Precision™ DMD Control Software into DMD application development markets.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2012 COMPARED TO THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2011

 

Revenue

 

The Company earned $52,649 from the OCAST grant during the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

In January 2008 we launched our first software product Pixel Precision™. We appointed Digital Light Innovations for the sales and distribution of this product in March 2008.

 

We have earned income of $-0- and $3,000 before commissions and costs from the sales of Pixel Precision™ for the three-months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, respectively.

 

We expect sales of Pixel Precision™ to the installed and active user base of the earlier D1100 and D3000 systems in the near term and as companion product sales to D4000 systems. We expect that the revenue from this product to contribute to the operating expenses (general and administrative, research and development, interest) but do not expect the revenue generated in 2012 to cover the operating expenses.

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

The research and development expenses were $133,481 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $65,003 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The increase was a result of engaging outside research and development consultants.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

Our general and administrative expenses were $294,994 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $296,252 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The net decrease is due primarily to a $70,000 increase in consulting fees, $18,840 in options issued to the new CEO and a $52,000 decrease in legal fees incurred during the period, a decrease in accounting and auditing fees of $8,000, a $5,000 decrease in shareholder expense a various other administrative expense aggregating approximately $20,000.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $1,881 as compared to $28,353 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The net decrease was a result of a decrease in the amounts outstanding on our convertible debentures and a decrease in interest costs for the extension of the Newton, O'Connor, Turner & Ketchum 13% Convertible Debentures.

 

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Management remains focused on controlling cash expenses. We recognize our limited cash resources and plan our expenses accordingly. We intend to leverage stock-for-services wherever possible. The operating budget consists of the following expenses:

 

  · Research and development expenses pursuant to our SRA with the University. This includes development of an initial demonstrable prototype and a second prototype for static volume technology.
  · Acceleration of research and development through increased research personnel as well as other research agencies.
  · General and administrative expenses: salaries, insurance, investor related expenses, rent, travel, website, etc.
  · Hiring executive officers for technology, operations and finance.
  · Development, support and operational costs related to Pixel Precision™ software.
  · Professional fees for accounting and audit; legal services for securities and financing; patent research and protection.

 

Our independent registered public accountants, in their audit report accompanying our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern due to our status as a development stage organization with insufficient revenues to fund development and operating expenses.

 

We had net cash of $81,286 at March 31, 2012.

 

We had negative working capital of $740,860 at March 31, 2012.

 

5
 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we used $301,160 of cash for operating activities, an increase of $34,829 or 13% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in the use of cash for operating activities was a result of the reduction in accounts payable.

 

There was no cash used in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2012 or for the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

Cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $364,780, a decrease of $385,220 or 51% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The decrease was the result of warrant exercise advances from Golden State under the terms of our 4.75% convertible debenture.

 

We expect to fund the ongoing operations through the existing financing in place (see below); through raising additional funds as permitted by the terms of Golden State financing as well as reducing our monthly expenses.

 

Our ability to fund the operations of the Company is highly dependent on the underlying stock price of the Company.

 

Pursuant to the 6.25% Convertible Debenture now due in 2014, on November 21, 2007, the Company issued and sold a convertible note in the principal amount of $1,250,000 (the “Debenture”) to Golden State Equity Investors, Inc. f/k/a Golden Gate Investors (“Golden Gate”). Pursuant to the terms of the Debenture, Golden State may, at its election, convert all or a part of the Debenture into shares of the Company's common stock at a conversion rate equal to the lesser of (i) $2.00 or (ii) 90% of the average of the five lowest volume weighted average prices during the twenty trading days prior to Golden State's election to convert, subject to adjustment as provided in the Debenture. In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Debenture, the Company agreed to file a registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion or redemption of the Debenture. The Company filed a registration statement covering the shares to be issued upon conversion of the Debenture. Included in the registration statement were 4.25 million shares issuable on the Debenture based on 2007 market prices and assuming full conversion of the convertible debenture. The registration statement became effective on January 4, 2008.

 

Golden State advanced $125,000 on the $1.25 million Debenture on November 9, 2007 and $746,213 in January 2008 at which time the Company placed 7,961,783 shares of common stock in escrow to be released as debentures are converted. As of September 30, 2011, Golden State has funded an aggregate of $871,213 on the Debenture. Golden State will be obligated to fund the Company for the remaining $378,787 in principal on the Debenture upon the effectiveness of a registration statement underlying the remaining unfunded principal balance on the Debenture. At this time, the Company has not filed a registration statement. At various dates during 2009, $115,043, of the Debenture was converted into 12,124,828 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.007 to $0.01 based on the formula in the convertible debenture. At various dates during 2010, $274,438 of the Debenture was converted into 93,196,578 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.0027 to $0.004 based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Shares totaling 6,093,396 were issued in payment of $17,062 of accrued interest during 2010. At various dates during 2011, $157,331 of the Debenture was converted into 16,156,404 shares of common stock at prices ranging from $0.0059 to $0.0174 based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally $12,669 was added to the principle balance of the debenture in payment of accrued interest during 2011. The 4,310,446 shares remaining in escrow and reported as outstanding at December 31, 2010 were cancelled in the first quarter of 2011.

 

Pursuant to the 4.75% Convertible Debenture now due in 2014, beginning in November 2007, Golden State is obligated to submit conversion notices in an amount such that Golden State receives 1% of the outstanding shares of the Company every calendar quarter for a period of one year. In connection with each conversion, Golden State is expected to exercise warrants equal to 10 times the amount of principal converted. The warrants are exercisable at $10.90 per share. Beginning in November 2008, Golden State is required to convert $3,000 of the 4.75% Convertible Debenture and exercise 30,000 warrants per month. During 2009, Golden State converted $3,510 of the $100,000 debenture into 35,622,803 shares of common stock, exercised warrants to purchase 35,100 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share and the Company received $382,590 from the exercise of the warrants. During 2009, Golden State advanced $240,000 against future exercises of warrants and applied $4,181 of accrued interest due on the debenture to the advance account of which $336,170 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $48,511 of unapplied advances at December 31, 2009. During 2010, Golden State converted $4,752 of the $100,000 debenture into 162,454,399 shares of common stock, exercised warrants to purchase 47,523 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share and advanced $251,489 against future exercises of warrants of which $300,000 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $-0- of unapplied advances at December 31, 2010. During 2011, Golden State converted $6,760 of the $100,000 debenture into 60,601,868, shares of common stock and exercised warrants to purchase 67,600 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally Golden Gate advanced $753,381 against future exercises of warrants of which $736,840 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $16,542 of unapplied advances at December 31, 2011. During 2012, Golden State converted $1,663 of the $100,000 debenture into 25,049,954 shares of common stock and exercised warrants to purchase 16,635 shares of common stock at $10.90 per share based on the formula in the convertible debenture. Additionally Golden Gate advanced $364,781 against future exercises of warrants of which $181,322 was applied to the exercise of warrants leaving $200,001 of unapplied advances at March 31, 2012.

 

The Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology approved our application for funding of a matching grant titled 800 Million Voxels Volumetric Display, on November 19, 2008. The two-year matching grant, totaling $299,932, had a start date of January 1, 2009. We received approval for a no cost modification request, which extended the first year of the contract to August 31, 2010. In addition, the Company received approval for a second year no cost modification request, which extended the second year of the contract to August 31, 2012. In connection with the grant, the Company received (i) $35,139 during 2009; (ii) $96,362 during 2010; (iii) $86,323 during 2011; and $217,824 from inception to date.

On October 31, 2008 OU agreed to revise the payment terms under the SRA from a fixed monthly payment to a reimbursable cost payment basis effective September 1, 2008. As of September 30, 2008 the Company had a remaining obligation under the previous SRA payment schedule of $2,665,818 which included monthly payments due for December 2007 through August 31, 2008 of $861,131. The $1,804,687 balance of the remaining scheduled payment obligation was cancelled. Under the terms of the revised base payments schedule, the arrearages would be paid in nine monthly base installments from October 31, 2008 to June 30, 2009 of amounts ranging from $35,000 to $101,132 leaving a remaining balance after the base payments of $290,000. In addition to the monthly base payments, the Company agreed to make additional payments on the $861,131 arrearages based on a formula of 50% of funding in excess of $120,000 plus the base monthly payment. In the event funding did not provide for any additional payments, the remaining balance would be $290,000, which OU agreed to accept 4,264,707 shares of the Company's common stock based on the October 14, 2008 market price as reported on the OTC Bulletin Board of $0.068 per share as payment on June 30, 2009. The Company had the option to repurchase the shares at $0.068 per share by September 30, 2009 or at market value, but not less than $0.068 per share, if the repurchase occurred after September 30, 2009.

 

The Company was unable to meet the revised payment schedule and on May 18, 2009 the University agreed to revise the payment terms. Under the terms of the revised base payments schedule, the arrearages scheduled to be paid in nine monthly base installments from October 31, 2008 to June 30, 2009 of amounts ranging from $35,000 to $101,132, were deferred to a monthly payment schedule of July 2009 through February 2010. On February 19, 2010, the University agreed to modify the repayment plan to retire the outstanding debt of $525,481. Under the terms of the modified repayment plan the Company agreed to make payments to the University, not less than quarterly, in an amount equal to 22.5% of any funding received by the Company. The Company complied with the agreed upon payment schedule and on December 1, 2010 the Company entered into an agreement with OU pursuant to which OU agreed to convert all sums due to it from the Company in connection with its SRA with the Company, which as of December 1, 2010 amounted to approximately $485,000, into an aggregate of 59,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock. As a result of the debt conversion, OU became the holder of approximately 8% of the outstanding common stock of the Company. Pursuant to the agreement, the shares are subject to a put option allowing OU to require the Company to purchase certain of the shares upon the occurrence of certain events. In addition, the shares are subject to a call option allowing the Company to require OU to sell to the Company the shares then held by OU in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not engage in any off balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, revenues, and results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

Research and Development Costs

 

The Company expenses all research and development costs as incurred. Until we have developed a commercial product, all costs incurred in connection with the SRA with the University, as well as all other research and development costs incurred, will be expensed as incurred. After a commercial product has been developed, we will report costs incurred in producing products for sale as assets, but we will continue to expense costs incurred for further product research and development activities.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Since its inception 3DIcon has used its common stock or warrants to purchase its common stock as a means of compensating our employees and consultants. Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") guidance on accounting for share based payments requires us to estimate the value of securities used for compensation and to charge such amounts to expense over the periods benefited.

 

The estimated fair value at date of grant of options for our common stock is estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, as follows:  

 

The expected dividend yield is based on the average annual dividend yield as of the grant date. Expected volatility is based on the historical volatility of our stock. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury Constant Maturity rates as of the grant date. The expected life of the option is based on historical exercise behavior and expected future experience.

 

Subsequent Events

 

Debentures payable

 

In accordance with the terms of the Second Debenture an event of default occurs if the common stock of the Company trades at a price per share of $0.21 or lower. The trading price was at $0.21 or lower on several occasions during the period ended March 31, 2012 and subsequent to March 31, 2012.  On each of the occasions Golden State, by letter agreements, agreed that the occasions did not constitute a default and thereby waived the default provision for the occasions.

 

Subsequent to March 31, 2012 Golden State advanced $100,000 of warrant exercise advances on the 4.75% convertible debenture.

Common stock issued for services and liabilities

 

Subsequent to March 31, 2012 post-split shares of common stock totaling 102,041 were issued for consulting services for which the Company recognized $15,750 of expense. Additionally post-split shares totaling 1,005,724 we issued for accounts payable for which the Company reduced the accounts payable liability by $376,850.

 

Equity Incentive Stock Plan

 

In April 2012 the Company established the 3DIcon Corporation 2012 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2012 EIP"). The total number of shares of stock which may be purchased or granted directly by options, stock awards or restricted stock purchase offers, or purchased indirectly through exercise of options granted under the 2012 EIP shall not exceed five million (5,000,000) post-split shares.  The shares are included in a registration statement filed May 3, 2012. Post-split shares totaling 1,107,765 were issued from the 2012 EIP subsequent to March 31, 2012 for services rendered and to satisfy accounts payable to the Company. There are currently 3,892,235 shares available for issuance under the 2012 EIP.

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

On April 27, 2012, 3DIcon Corporation, an Oklahoma corporation filed an Amended Certificate of Incorporation to effect a 1-for-35 reverse split of the Company’s common stock. The reverse stock split was announced by Financial Industry Regulatory Authority on April 26, 2012 and became effective on April 27, 2012. As previously reported on the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed on October 20, 2011, this action followed a stockholder vote at the Company’s annual meeting of the stockholders of the Company, which vote authorized the Company’s Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s authorized, issued and outstanding common stock.

 

On April 27, 2012, the effective date, every 35 shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock were combined into one share of common stock. The Company did not issue any fractional shares in connection with the reverse stock split. Stockholders of record who otherwise would have been entitled to receive fractional shares will be entitled, upon surrender to our transfer agent of certificates representing such shares, cash in lieu thereof.

 

Civil Action Complaint

 

As previously disclosed, on April 2, 2012, the Company was served with a Summons and Complaint (the “Complaint”) for a civil action involving a billing dispute.  The Complaint was filed by Advanced Optical Technologies, Inc. (“AOT”) in the Second Judicial District Court of New Mexico, County of Bernalillo.  On May 11, 2012, the Company and AOT entered a settlement agreement pursuant to which the parties agreed to discontinue all legal proceedings and AOT agreed to take all legal action to withdraw the Complaint.  In connection therewith, the Company agreed to pay AOT $95,125.

 

Item 3.   Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Not Applicable.

 

Item 4.   Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") ) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report were effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.   During the most recent quarter ended March 31, 2012, there has been no change in our internal control over  financial  reporting  (as defined in Rule  13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected,  or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
