NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

March 31, 2016

(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, 2016, and the statements of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. 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.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The following is a summary of recent accounting pronouncements that are relevant to the Company:

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) intended to increase transparency and comparability among companies by requiring most leases to be included on the balance sheet and by expanding disclosure requirements. This is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted for all public business entities and all nonpublic business entities upon issuance. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this new guidance may have on its results of operations, cash flows, financial position and disclosures.

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Interest – Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30), Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. The amendments in ASU 2015-03 require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by this update. The provisions of ASU 2015-03 are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The guidance in this ASU is to be applied on a retrospective basis. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.

 

The FASB has issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. This ASU supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in FASB ASC 605 - Revenue Recognition and most industry-specific guidance throughout the Codification. The standard requires that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. On July 9, 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 from annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016 to annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. This ASU should be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the ASU recognized at the date of initial application. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations. 

 

 F-6 

 

 

The FASB has issued ASU 2014-12, Compensation - Stock Compensation (ASC Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period. This ASU requires that a performance target that affects vesting, and that could be achieved after the requisite service period, be treated as a performance condition. As such, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant date fair value of the award. This update further clarifies that compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual periods and interim periods within those annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015. Earlier adoption is permitted. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position and results of operations.

 

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 $22,381,690 for the period from inception (January 1, 2001) to March 31, 2016, and a net loss of $222,700 and $305,257 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern 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.

 

Given the reduced reliance on federal funding discussed in Note 2, the Company is committed to exploring possible acquisitions, partnerships, or other strategic transactions involving direct or indirect funding for the Company. Accordingly, the Company formed a committee comprised of Mark Willner, Chairman of the Company’s Business Advisory Board, Doug Freitag and Victor Keen to lead in this effort. Currently the Company is in conversations with several companies involving a possible affiliation or other strategic transaction.

 

Additionally, under the terms of the Golden State 4.75% Convertible Debenture due on December 31, 2016, 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 simultaneously exercise a percentage of warrants equal to the percentage of the principal being converted. The warrants are exercisable at $381.50 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 and provided that Golden State is able to sell the shares under Rule 144, Golden State is required to convert $85.71 of the 4.75% Convertible Debenture and exercise 857 warrants per month. Based upon the current stock price, the issued and outstanding shares as of March 31, 2016 and ignoring the impact of the Beneficial Ownership Limitations, the Company may receive up to $327,000 per month in funding for the duration of the debenture from Golden State as a result of warrant exercises. However, due to the Beneficial Ownership Limitations, the Company did not receive any advances from Golden State during the three months ended March 31, 2016. Such advances are recorded within warrant exercise advances on the balance sheets when received. 

 

The Company is in discussions with Golden State Equity Investors to modify the normal means by which we access funds. This would provide the Company with greater flexibility and control over the issuance of shares and not further limit our access to operating and growth capital.

 

Joint Development Agreement with Schott Defense

 

As part of our federal funding strategy we intend to effectively compete by forming interdisciplinary teams with potential strategic partners (large and small), academic and commercial laboratories, and systems integrators providing integrated data visualization solutions.  The first of these partnerships was reached in March 2014 when the Company signed a JDA with Schott, a federally focused subsidiary of Schott North America.  Schott is a world-class multi-billion dollar company with significant experience and success in partnering with federal agencies for development projects.  In addition, Schott is one of the world’s leaders in developing specialty glass for many applications, including display technology.  This partnership, coupled with the expertise of Doug Freitag, should facilitate the Company’s federal funding strategy and our ability to create the unique materials required to advance the CSpace technology. In December of 2015 Schott AG closed the development office, Schott Defense, in Washington, D.C. It is unclear how this may impact the JDA going forward. 

 

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

Note 2 – OCAST Grant

 

In July 2013, the Company was awarded a two year grant from OCAST. This was the second $300,000 grant received from OCAST. The first grant was completed in August 2012. This matching grant was for a total of $300,000 and commenced September 1, 2013. The Company received $5,122 in funding during the three-month period ended March 31, 2015. The funds were being used to support the development of the Company’s first Product Platform, which will be the basis for a family of products based on the Company’s CSpace® volumetric 3D display technology.

 

The grant was cancelled in March 2015 upon the resignation of Dr. Hakki Refai, the principal investigator under the grant.

10% Convertible Debentures to Directors due June 30, 2016

 

On June 24, 2013, the Company issued to Victor Keen and Martin Keating, Directors of the Company, (“Directors”) 10% convertible debentures in a principal amount of $15,000 each, due June 26, 2014 and subsequently extended to June 30, 2016. The Directors may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount of the debentures at an exercise price of $0.01 per share. Provided that the debentures are paid in full on or before the maturity date, no interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance of the principal amount. In the event that the debentures are not paid in full on or before the maturity date, interest shall accrue on the unpaid outstanding balance of the principal amount of the debentures from June 26, 2013, until paid, at the fixed rate of ten percent (10%) per annum. Accordingly, interest was being accrued under the terms of the debenture. On March 24, 2016, the Company issued to Mr. Keen and Mr. Keating 1,193,582 and 19,266 shares of its newly designated Series B Preferred, respectively, in accordance with Securities Purchase Agreements dated December 11, 2015, pursuant to which, as a result of the issuance of the Series B Preferred, all amounts owed under these convertible debenture were deemed satisfied, exchanged and converted. 

 

10% Convertible Debenture due Newton, O'Connor, Turner & Ketchum, due June 30, 2016

 

On December 20, 2012, the Company issued to Newton, O'Connor, Turner & Ketchum (“NOTK”) a 10% convertible debenture in a principal amount of $29,007, initially due September 30, 2013 and extended to June 30, 2016. NOTK may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount of the debenture at an exercise price of $0.02534 per share. The Company was indebted to NOTK for legal services performed for the Company and reimbursement of expenses in rendition of those services for the period ended December 31, 2012. The debenture was issued in settlement of the indebtedness. On March 24, 2016, the Company issued to NOTK 50,149 shares of its newly designated Series B Preferred in accordance with a Securities Purchase Agreement dated December 11, 2015, pursuant to which, as a result of the issuance of the Series B Preferred, all amounts owed under the 10% convertible debenture were deemed satisfied, exchanged and converted.

 

4.75% Convertible Debenture due December 31, 2016

 

On November 3, 2006, the Company issued to Golden State a 4.75% convertible debenture in a principal amount of $100,000, due December 31, 2014, subsequently extended to December 31, 2016 and warrants to buy 28,571 shares of the common stock at an exercise price of $381.50 per share. In connection with each conversion, Golden State is expected to simultaneously exercise a percentage of warrants equal to the percentage of the principal being converted. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, Golden State did not convert any of the $100,000 debenture into shares of common stock, or exercise warrants to purchase shares of common stock.

 

The conversion price for the 4.75% $100,000 convertible debenture is the lesser of (i) $140 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 pre-split price is below $0.70, 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.

10% Convertible Bridge Note due June 30, 2016

 

On September 11, 2012, the Company issued and sold to Victor F. Keen, a Director and an accredited investor a Convertible Bridge Note (the “Keen Bridge Note”) in the principal amount of $60,000. The sale of the Keen Bridge Note in the principal of $60,000 included a $10,000 OID. The Keen Bridge Note matured 90 days from the date of issuance and, other than the OID, the Keen Bridge Note did not carry interest. However, in the event the Keen Bridge Note is not paid on maturity, all past due amounts will accrue interest at 15% per annum. Upon maturity, the holders may elect to convert any or all of any portion of outstanding principal. On March 8, 2016, Mr. Keen agreed to extend the maturity of the Note from December 31, 2015 to June 30, 2016 and to waive, if any, existing or prior defaults under the Keen Bridge Note or the Keen SPA. On March 24, 2016, the Company issued to Mr. Keen 1,193,582 shares of its newly designated Series B Preferred in accordance with Securities Purchase Agreements dated December 11, 2015, pursuant to which, as a result of the issuance of the Series B Preferred, all amounts owed under this convertible debenture were deemed satisfied, exchanged and converted.

In the event of any (i) liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, or ii) sale, merger, consolidation, reorganization or other transaction that results in a change of control of the Company, each holder of a share of Series A Preferred shall be entitled to receive, subject to prior preferences and other rights of any class or series of stock of the Company senior to the Series A Preferred, but prior and in preference to any distribution of any of the assets or surplus funds of the Company to holders of Common Stock, or any other class or series of stock of the Company junior to the Series A Preferred, an amount equal to the Stated Value plus accrued and unpaid dividends (as adjusted for any stock dividends, combinations or splits with respect to such shares) (the “Preference Amount”). After such payment has been made to the holders of Series A Preferred of the full Preference Amount to which such holders shall be entitled, the remaining net assets of the Company available for distribution, if any, shall be distributed pro rata among the holders of Common Stock. In the event the funds or assets legally available for distribution to the holders of Series A Preferred are insufficient to pay the Preference Amount, then all funds or assets available for distribution to the holders of capital stock shall be paid to the holders of Series A Preferred pro rata based on the full Preference Amount to which they are entitled.

 

The Company may not declare, pay or set aside any dividends on shares of any class or series of capital stock of the Company (other than dividends on shares of Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock) unless the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock shall first receive, or simultaneously receive, a dividend on each outstanding share of Series A Preferred in an amount equal to the dividend per share that such holders would have received had they converted their shares of Series A Preferred into shares of Common Stock immediately prior to the record date for the declaration of the Common Stock dividend in an amount equal to the average VWAP during the 5 trading days prior to the date such dividend is due.  

 

Series B Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On March 22, 2016, 3DIcon Corporation, filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Oklahoma a Certificate of Designation (the “Certificate of Designation”), setting for the Preferences, Rights and Limitation of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred”). The Two Million (2,000,000) shares of Series B Preferred designated under the Certificate of Designation have a stated value of $1.00 per share (the “Stated Value”). Under the Certificate of Designation, the holders of the Series B Preferred have the following rights, preferences and privileges: 

 

The holders of Series B Preferred are not entitled to receive dividends but have voting rights equal to the number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock into which their Series B Preferred can be converted, whether or not the shares are available for issuance.

 

At the option of the holder, Series B Preferred may be converted in whole or in part, from time to time, into One Thousand Nine Hundred Fourteen (1,914) shares of Common Stock. The Series B Preferred Stock will automatically be converted into Common Stock if (i) at anytime the 5 day average VWAP of the Company’s Common Stock prior to such automatic conversion is equal to $0.10 or more; or (ii) the Company enters into a transaction for which the Company enters into a share exchange agreement or agreement and plan of merger, which agreement is executed within ninety (90) days after the date of the Certificate of Designation and pursuant to which the Company thereafter becomes a consolidated company with another entity, and the Company issues equity securities of the Company. Such automatic conversion would be converted by the same method described above for discretionary conversions.

Plan of Operation

 

Background:

 

3DIcon Corporation was incorporated on August 11, 1995, under the laws of the State of Oklahoma as First Keating Corporation. Our articles of incorporation were amended August 1, 2003 to change the name to 3DIcon Corporation. The initial focus of First Keating Corporation was to market and distribute books written by its founder, Martin Keating. During 2001, First Keating Corporation began to focus on the development of 360-degree holographic technology. The effective date of this transition was January 1, 2001. We accounted for this transition as reorganization and accordingly, restated its capital accounts as of January 1, 2001. At the inception on January 1, 2001, our primary activity was the raising of capital in order to pursue its goal of becoming a significant participant in the formation and commercialization of interactive, optical holography for the communications and entertainment industries.

 

In April 2004, we engaged the University of Oklahoma (the “University” or “OU”) to conduct a pilot study to determine the opportunity and feasibility for the creation of volumetric three dimensional display systems.

 

On July 15, 2005, we entered into a Sponsored Research Agreement (“SRA”) with the University, which expired on January 14, 2007. Under this agreement, the University conducted a research project entitled "Investigation of 3-Dimensional Display Technologies".

 

On February 23, 2007, we entered into an SRA with the University, which expired on March 31, 2010. Under this agreement, the University conducted a research project entitled "3-Dimensional Display Development".

 

In the fourth quarter of 2007 we announced the release of our first product, "Pixel Precision". On February 12, 2009, version 2.0 of Pixel Precision was released to expand capabilities and provide new compatibility with Texas Instrument's newly released DLP® Discovery 4000 kits.  This is a companion software application to the DMD Discovery line of products manufactured by Texas Instruments®. Further development of this product was ended in 2015.

 

In July 2013, the Company was awarded a two year grant from OCAST. This was the second $300,000 grant received from OCAST. The first grant was completed in August 2012. This matching grant was for a total of $300,000 and commenced September 1, 2013. The Company received $5,122 in funding during the three-month period ended March 31, 2015. The funds were being used to support the development of the Company’s first Product Platform, which will be the basis for a family of products based on the Company’s CSpace® volumetric 3D display technology.

 

The grant was cancelled in March 2015 upon the resignation of Dr. Hakki Refai, the principal investigator under the grant.

 

Overview of Business

 

3DIcon is a small public company that is further developing a patented volumetric 3D display technology that was developed by and with the University under an SRA. The development to date has resulted in multiple new technologies, two working laboratory prototypes (Lab Proto 1 and Lab Proto 2), and eight provisional patents; five of the eight provisional patents have been combined and converted to five utility patents. Under the SRA, the Company has obtained the exclusive worldwide marketing rights to these 3D display technologies.

 

On May 26, 2009, the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") approved the patent called "Volumetric Liquid Crystal Display" for rendering a three-dimensional image and converted it to US patent No. 7,537,345. On December 28, 2010, USPTO approved the patent called “Light Surface Display for Rendering a Three-Dimensional Image,” and issued the United States Patent No. 7,858,913.  On August 21, 2012, the USPTO approved a continuation patent called “3D Volumetric Display” and issued the US Patent No. 8,247,755. These patents describe the foundation of what we are calling our CSpace® technology (“CSpace”).

Volumetric

 

The Company plans to commercialize the CSpace volumetric 3D technology through a combination of government funded research and development contracts, joint development agreements with industry partners and technology licensing agreements with companies like Raytheon, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Siemens, and General Electric for high value applications in military planning, cyber data analysis, battlespace visualization, oil and gas exploration and medical imaging. Although we do not have any definitive agreements in place that provide for such funding, we believe that the Federal Government would be interested in entering into funded arrangements based on past and existing discussions our management have had with Federal Government Program Managers. Likewise, we believe that Industry would be interested in entering into joint development agreements that could ultimately lead to licensing agreements. For example, Raytheon, Boeing and Schott Defense have provided letters of support for government grants that we have applied for, indicating their interest in working with us on the specific project if the grant were to be awarded. We have no formal agreements or commitments from Boeing or Raytheon beyond these initial discussions. We have had similar interactions with a number of companies, such as Lockheed, Honeywell, General Electric, Florida Institute of Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC), Cleveland Clinic, ShuffleMaster, etc. regarding our CSpace technology.

 

The above commercialization plan depends on our ability to convince potential customers (Government and Industry) that products based on our technology will meet their requirements and that the technical risk in developing products based on our technology will be acceptable to these potential customers. We are targeting high value applications that typically require products to be customized to the customer’s application. Since we understand the capabilities and limitations of CSpace better than potential customers, it is not unusual for this type of customer to ask the technology developer (in this case 3DIcon) to do most or part of the product development for or with the customer in exchange for funding by the customer. In 2016, we plan to continue to solicit the Federal Government and Industry to enter into customer-funded development contracts to develop our technology for or with those customers. Our goal is to generate sufficient funding from such arrangements that would meet or exceed the incremental costs of developing product prototypes for or with customers. If we are successful in completing the initial product prototypes on a timely basis, it is possible that the Company could generate licensing revenues from our CSpace technology beginning in the fourth quarter of 2017. The Company believes that it has an experienced display industry and management team with a proven track record of successfully commercializing multiple display technologies to move our CSpace technology strategy forward.

 

In March of 2012, the Company implemented a new evolutionary, step-by-step commercialization strategy for the CSpace volumetric display technology. Under this strategy we are developing multiple staged prototypes with successively higher performance (brightness, resolution, and image size). Lab Proto 2 is a working prototype with significant improvements over Lab Proto 1 and was completed in October 2012. Our technical team increased the image size of Lab Proto 2 by a factor of eight (8x) and the brightness of the image by a factor of five (5x). Taken together with the 50 times higher brightness already achieved, Lab Proto 2 is 250 times (250x) brighter than Lab Proto 1.  Because of the larger image size and the much higher brightness, we achieved much higher effective resolution as well. Lab Proto 3, while not complete, is already 80 times brighter than Lab Proto 2 and more than 2,000 times brighter than Lab Proto 1.  Most of the engineering work (optics, electronics and software) is complete, and the focus is now on the image space materials.  

    

The goals for Lab Proto 3 are to develop a lower cost and more scalable image chamber material (specialty glass), to enhance imagine brightness by ten (10x) by utilizing a new scanning system, and to use that new material to construct an even larger image chamber than was demonstrated for Lab Proto 2.  Part of our Joint Development Agreement (“JDA”) with Schott Defense (“Schott”) and our efforts to secure federal funding are aimed at accelerating the process of securing a scalable material for CSpace’s image space. 

 

Delays have been incurred in the efforts to seek the best possible solution to the material required for the image space.  Our federal funding strategy and JDA with Schott are specifically targeted at securing this material, though they have failed to provide the necessary capital to date.

  

We believe that Lab Proto 3 will enable the Company to credibly engage with potential customers and secure customer funded development contracts to develop even larger and higher resolution product prototypes. If we are successful in securing customer funded development contracts, we anticipate the development of various product prototypes, the first of which we have been calling the Trade Show Prototype. It is likely that in exchange for funding of the TradeShow Prototype, our initial customer will require an exclusive license to the technology in a particular field of use (e.g. medical imaging). The Company believes that any such exclusive license will be based on a set period of time during product and/or market development and based on performance thereafter. Failure by the customer to meet agreed upon performance criteria would most likely result in the license becoming non-exclusive. Any such exclusive license agreement would preclude the Company from working with other customers in that field of use during the period of the exclusive license. The Company does not believe that this strategy for funding the Tradeshow Prototype will significantly impact the revenue potential of the technology given the number of potential applications (fields of use). If successfully developed, the Trade Show Prototype will be fully packaged and portable so that it can be used for trade shows and on-site customer demonstrations. We believe that the Trade Show Prototype will enable the Company to market and secure licensing agreements with large government contractors and large medical or industrial products companies.

Federal Funding Strategy

 

As funding has increased for the 3D field, the Company has implemented a federal funding strategy to augment its other capital raising efforts.  In December 2013, the Company secured the services of Doug Freitag, an expert in identifying and obtaining government grants of the type we are seeking. The initial targets for this strategy included: the Obama Administration’s multi-agency priorities of advanced manufacturing and information technology (e.g., Big Data Research and Development Initiative with over $200 million annually); the Department of Defense’s priorities to reduce the cost of developing, testing, and manufacturing new weapon systems, enhance training and operation of autonomous systems and accelerate data-to-decisions; and Federal Aviation Administration’s on-going priority to enhance air traffic control systems. As a result of feedback from various Federal Government Program Managers, the strategy has changed and now places increased emphasis on a growing need for new technologies to visualize cyber data, military planning, medical imaging data, data collected when screening for contraband and validation of 3D engineering designs prior to manufacturing by 3D printing. The strategy also places greater emphasis on Small Business Innovation Research Grants where funding continues to grow, competition is limited to other small businesses, 3DIcon can more easily be the project leader, and the cycle for awards from the date of submission can be much faster. Larger contracts will still be considered but include other partners and may require one of more partners to lead the projects if awarded. A pre-proposal titled “Glasses-Free 3D Volumetric Display for to Enhance Mission Analysis” was submitted to the Defense Intelligence Agency on November 26, 2014. A proposal titled “3D Volumetric Display of Neurological Data Provided by MRI Imaging” was submitted to the National institute of Health on December 5, 2014 and is under review. A proposal titled “Transforming Cyber Data into Human-Centered 3D Visualizations” was submitted to the Air Force on February 25, 2015. A pre-proposal titled “Glasses-Free 3D Volumetric Visualization of Critical Data to Enhance Decision Making” was submitted to the DOD Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office on March 20, 2015. These submissions, have failed to produce funding necessary to accelerate the development process, though the Company will continue to pursue federal funding on a selective basis.

 

Joint Development Agreement with Schott Defense

 

As part of our federal funding strategy we intend to effectively compete by forming interdisciplinary teams with potential strategic partners (large and small), academic and commercial laboratories, and systems integrators providing integrated data visualization solutions.  The first of these partnerships was reached in March 2014 when the Company signed a JDA with Schott, a federally focused subsidiary of Schott North America.  Schott is a world-class multi-billion dollar company with significant experience and success in partnering with federal agencies for development projects.  In addition, Schott is one of the world’s leaders in developing specialty glass for many applications, including display technology.  This partnership, coupled with the expertise of Doug Freitag, should facilitate the Company’s federal funding strategy and our ability to create the unique materials required to advance the CSpace technology. In December of 2015 Schott AG closed the development office, Schott Defense, in Washington, D.C. It is unclear how this may impact the JDA going forward.

 

Commercialization Strategy & Target Applications

 

The Company plans to commercialize the CSpace volumetric 3D technology through customer funded research and development contracts and technology licensing agreements with companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Siemens, and General Electric for high value applications like air traffic control, design visualization, and medical imaging. The Company plans to develop products for contract engineering and with joint development customers. At this time the Company does not have any commercialized products and does not plan to develop its own products based on the CSpace technology due to the high value / low volume nature of the best-fit initial applications for this technology. These applications include but are not limited to the following: 

 

  § Healthcare (diagnostics, surgical planning, training, telemedicine, biosurveillance);

 

  § Cyber Security Data Visualization;

 

  § Military (operational planning, training, modeling and simulation, battlespace awareness, damage assessment, autonomous piloting);

 

  § Physical Security (passenger, luggage & cargo screening);

 

  § Mining, Oil & Gas Exploration; or

 

  § Meteorological and Oceanographic data visualization.

 

In order to simplify internal development efforts on CSpace, software to control the initial laboratory prototype was created and later productized as "Pixel Precision" in 2007.

 

Competition

 

Based on our market research and competitive analysis to date, we have concluded that the CSpace volumetric technology is unique and advantaged versus other 3D technologies in that it can deliver both 1) a true 360 degree viewing experience for multiple simultaneous users, and 2) high image quality, high reliability and large image size. Rear projection 3D displays such as those from Zecotek, Setred, and EuroLCDs (formerly LC Tech LightSpace) do not provide a 360 degree viewing experience and are typically limited to one or two users. While rotating displays (also called swept volume) such as Perspecta from Optics For Hire (formerly Actuality, now licensed), Xigen (research only), Ray Modeler from Sony (research only), Felix 3D (research only), and the USC light field display (research only) do provide a true 360 degree viewing experience, they cannot deliver a large image, high image quality and reliability because the entire display is rotating at high speed. Early proof of concept work done on infrared active phosphor displays by 3D Display Laboratories proved to not be scalable due to limited phosphor persistence and vector scanning limitations. While holographic and light field displays show promise, they do not deliver a true 360 degree viewing experience and cost effective multiple user systems do not appear feasible due to current and expected pixel density, data bandwidth and compute power limitations.

Flat Screen 3D Strategy

 

Since March of 2012, the Company has been evaluating a number of second-generation, glasses-free flat screen 3D display technologies and the companies that are developing these technologies with the possibility of an acquisition of such a company in mind.  Our goal was to identify a new technology that could deliver significantly better performance (3D impact and image quality) than current large area multiple-viewer glasses-free 3D flat screen displays without compromising resolution and brightness, as do current displays.  The ideal company would also have a great technical team, a broad patent portfolio, and a credible technology roadmap to ensure that these competitive advantages are sustainable into the future. As a result of the above evaluation process, the Company previously entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent to acquire Dimension Technologies, Inc. (DTI) www.dti3d.com located in Rochester, NY. However, that Letter of Intent has since expired. Notwithstanding the expiration of the Letter of Intent, the Company’s interest in a potential acquisition of a small 3D flat screen display company remains. There can be no assurance that the Company will successfully raise adequate funds for such a transaction in the future.

  

Currently, we do not have any agreements in place that would allow entry into the flat screen segment of the glasses-free 3D display industry or digital signage industry and no assurances can be made that such an agreement will ever be consummated.  The Company is not actively seeking such acquisitions in the glasses-free 3D flat screen display segment at this time.

Beginning in 2007 the University, under an SRA with 3DIcon, undertook the development of the following three high potential 3D display technologies. The results of each project are summarized below.

 

  § I - Swept Volume Displays - We have successfully achieved the initial demonstration and proof of technology for this approach.

 

  § II - Static Volumetric Displays - This technology was ranked by the University as the best for further development.

 

  § III - Stacked Volume Displays - We also have investigated the technologies for developing innovative Stacked Volumetric Displays.

 

The Swept Volume Display is designed to be a 3D display system showing a volumetric image generated from an electronic medium. A proof-of-concept demonstration was achieved by the researchers around September 2007. The Swept Volume Display R&D entered into the subsequent second stage of improvement and development in 2008. Additional work on this particular approach has been deferred indefinitely because of the success and initial superiority of the CSpace technology.

 

Our implementation of a Static Volume Display (CSpace®) employs one or more Digital Micro-Mirror Devices (DMDs) and infra-red lasers to produce 3D images in advanced transparent nanotechnology materials, thereby enabling the creation, transmission and display of high resolution 3D images within a volume space, surrounded by glass or transparent screen. The initial investigation for the Static Volume system commenced in 2007. In September 2008, we built a laboratory prototype Static Volume Display using the CSpace technology and demonstrated the creation of true 3D images within a specified image space. New developments for eliminating the distortion occurred by the divergence of the constructed 3D image were presented at the SPIE Europe Security & Defense conference in Berlin, Germany in August 2009. Improvements for the optical systems utilized by CSpace with the latest achieved resolution were published in October 2009 in IEEE/OSA Journal of Display Technology titled "Static Volumetric Three-Dimensional Display" and can be found for a moderate fee at http://www.opticsinfobase.org. On February 15, 2010, at the SPIE Medical Imaging conference, we presented the latest software developments that allow reading Digital Imaging and Communication In Medicine ("DICOM") formats whether scanned by ultrasound devices, magnetic resonance imaging ("MRI"), or computed tomography ("CT") scanners. With this new software architecture, Static Volume 3D displays based on the CSpace technology would have the capability of displaying medical images.

 

On April 14, 2010, at the OSA Digital Holography and Three-Dimensional Imaging conference in Miami, FL, we presented an increase in brightness of the constructed 3D images.  On September 23, 2010, at the SPIE Europe Security & Defense conference in Toulouse, France, we presented new implementations to reduce flicker of the 3D Images constructed by CSpace display.  In November 2010, we published a new method of rendering 3D Images using a rotational-slicing technique at the Journal of the Society for Information Display and can be found for a moderate fee at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1889/JSID18.11.873/abstract. In December 2010, we published the utilization of new materials for CSpace image space at the Journal of the Society for Information Display and can be found for a moderate fee at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1889/JSID18.12.1065/abstract. In April 2011, New Developments That Allow CSpace To Perfectly Fit Applications Such As Air Traffic Control was published in the IEEE/OSA Journal of Display Technology and can be found for a moderate fee at http://www.opticsinfobase.org/jdt/abstract.cfm?uri=jdt-7-4-186. On April 25, 2011, we presented a new paper called “Multi-layer overlay display,” at the SPIE Defense & Security Conference in Orlando, FL. On May 17, 2013, we presented a new paper called ”CSpace High-Resolution Volumetric 3D Display,” at the SPIE Defense & Security in Baltimore, Maryland. On September 26, 2014 we were interviewed for an article on medical imaging by Medical Device Daily and can be found at http://www.medicaldevicedaily.com/servlet/com.accumedia.web.Dispatcher?next=mdd_currentIssue&issueId=23719&prodID=4&month=09&year=2014. On December 18, 2014, we co-authored a new publication called “Scalable Upconversion Medium for Static Volumetric Display” in the Journal of Display Technology and can be found for a moderate fee at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?reload=true&arnumber=6987226. On March 1, 2015 we published an overview on the applications for 3D Volumetric Displays in NASA Tech Briefs and can be found at http://www.techbriefs.com/component/content/article/27-ntb/features/application-briefs/21710. On February 27, 2015 we were interviewed for a Q/A article on 3D imaging by Medical Design Technology that can be found at http://www.mdtmag.com/blogs/2015/02/true-3d-imagesglasses-free. On March 24, 2015 we made a presentation called “Glasses-Free 3D Volumetric Display for Enhanced Decision Making” at the 2015 National Defense Industry Association Science & Engineering Technology Division Conference.

Regarding our continued efforts to improve the performance of the CSpace technology, we completed our second-generation prototype (Lab Proto 2) in October 2012. Our goals for Lab Proto 2 were to first improve image brightness, and then to improve resolution (increase the number of voxels or 3D pixels), and lastly to increase the size of the image. The image generated by Lab Proto 2 is approximately 250 times (250x) brighter than our first generation prototype and can now be viewed in normal room lighting. As a result of the increased brightness, resolution has also been improved. The estimated resolution of the second-generation prototype is approximately five times (5x) greater than the first generation prototype. The image size of Lab Proto 2 is approximately 8 times (8x) larger than our first generation prototype. We continue to develop a third-generation prototype (Lab Proto 3) with a larger image space, which we believe will enable the Company to credibly engage with potential customers and secure customer funded development contracts to develop even larger and higher resolution product prototypes, eventually leading to a trade show prototype that will be portable and package for display at trade shows or on-site customer demonstrations.

 

University of Oklahoma - Sponsored Research Agreement History

 

On December 1, 2010, the Company entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") with the University pursuant to which the University 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 1,685,714 shares of the Company's common stock (the "Shares"). As a result of the debt conversion, the University became the holder of approximately 8% of the outstanding common stock of the Company. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Shares were subject to a put option allowing the University to require the Company to purchase certain of the Shares upon the occurrence of certain events. In addition, the Shares were subject to a call option allowing the Company to require the University to sell to the Company the Shares then held by the University in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. The put options and the call options expired on November 30, 2014 and the Shares are no longer subject to such options.

 

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

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2016 COMPARED TO THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2015

 

Revenue

 

The Company received $-0- and $5,122 from the OCAST grant for the three months March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The OCAST grant was cancelled in March 2015 upon the resignation of the principal investigator.

 

Research and Development Expenses

 

The research and development expenses were $2,625 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, as compared to $42,909 for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The decrease was a result of the decrease in cost from the resignation of Dr. Hakki Refai and the related decrease in activity.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

Our general and administrative expenses were $219,011 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, as compared to $258,846 for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The decrease is due primarily to a decrease of $11,000 of legal fees incurred in 2016, a decrease in fees paid to consultants of $22,000, a decrease in salaries incurred in 2016, a decrease of $5,500 in securities filing fees in 2016, a decrease of $4,500 in marketing and public relations incurred in 2016 and an increase of $10,000 in accounting fees incurred in 2016.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $1,064 as compared to $8,624 for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The decrease is a result of the retirement of debentures in 2016.

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 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, 2015, 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 $1,435 at March 31, 2016.

 

We had negative working capital of $441,403 at March 31, 2016.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, we used $9,686 of cash for operating activities, a decrease of $153,752 or 94% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in the use of cash for operating activities was a result of the decrease in the net loss of approximately $83,000 and the decrease in stock and options issued for service of approximately $22,500 and the change in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in 2016 of approximately $86,000.

 

Cash used in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $-0-.

 

Cash provided by financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $-0-, a decrease of $131,700 or 100% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The decrease was the result of a decrease in funding under the terms of the convertible debentures from Golden State and the absence of new debentures issued in 2016.

 

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.

 

4.75% Convertible Debenture

 

On November 3, 2006, the Company issued to Golden State a 4.75% convertible debenture in a principal amount of $100,000, due December 2016 as a result of a maturity extension agreement received by the Company in March 2015, and warrants to buy 25,571 shares of the common stock at an exercise price of $381.50 per share. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, Golden State did not convert any of the $100,000 debenture into shares of common stock or exercise warrants to purchase shares of common stock.  

 

Director Debenture

 

On June 24, 2013, the Company issued to Victor Keen and Martin Keating, Directors of the Company, (“Directors”) 10% convertible debentures in a principal amount of $15,000 each, due June 26, 2014 and extended to June 30, 2016. The Directors may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount of the debentures at an exercise price of $0.01 per share. Provided that the debentures are paid in full on or before the maturity date, no interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance of the principal amount. In the event that the debentures are not paid in full on or before the maturity date, interest shall accrue on the unpaid outstanding balance of the principal amount of the debentures from June 26, 2013, until paid, at the fixed rate of ten percent (10%) per annum. On March 24, 2016, the Company issued to Mr. Keen and Mr. Keating 1,193,582 and 19,266 shares of its newly designated Series B Preferred, respectively, in accordance with Securities Purchase Agreements dated December 11, 2015, pursuant to which, as a result of the issuance of the Series B Preferred, all amounts owed under these convertible debenture are deemed satisfied, exchanged and converted. 

 

Newton, O'Connor, Turner & Ketchum 10% Convertible Debenture

 

On December 20, 2012, the Company issued to Newton, O'Connor, Turner & Ketchum (“NOTK”) a 10% convertible debenture in a principal amount of $29,007, initially due September 30, 2013 and extended to June 30, 2016.  NOTK may elect to convert all or any portion of the outstanding principal amount of the debenture at an exercise price of $0.02534 per share. The Company was indebted to NOTK for legal services performed for the Company and reimbursement of expenses in rendition of those services for the period ended December 31, 2012. The debenture was issued in settlement of the indebtedness.  On March 24, 2016, the Company issued to NOTK 50,149 shares of its newly designated Series B Preferred in accordance with a Securities Purchase Agreement dated December 11, 2015, pursuant to which, as a result of the issuance of the Series B Preferred, all amounts owed under the 10% convertible debenture are deemed satisfied, exchanged and converted.

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

 

Loan Agreements

 

On April, 16, 2016 the Company entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Agreement”) whereby the lender agreed to provide the Company a loan facility of up to $100,000. Under the terms of the Agreement the Company shall pay interest on the outstanding unpaid balance at the rate of 1.167% per month. The interest is due quarterly and the principal is due June 29, 2018. The lender has advanced $50,000 on the loan.

 

On April 26, 2016 the Company entered into a 9% promissory note with Golden State in the amount of $40,000. Under the terms of the note interest is payable monthly and the note is due November 1, 2016. 

 

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, 2016, 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.

 

PART II

 

Item 1.   Legal Proceedings.

 

We are not a party to any pending legal proceeding, nor is our property the subject of a pending legal proceeding, that is not in the ordinary course of business or otherwise material to the financial condition of our business. None of our directors, officers or affiliates is involved in a proceeding adverse to our business or has a material interest adverse to our business.
