|Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]
Note 1: Background
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of JanOne Inc., a Nevada corporation, and its subsidiaries (collectively the “Company” or “JanOne”).
The Company has three operating segments – Biotechnology, Recycling, and Technology.
During September 2019, JanOne, through its biotechnology segment, broadened its business perspectives to become a pharmaceutical company focused on finding treatments for conditions that cause severe pain and bringing to market drugs with non-addictive pain-relieving properties.
ARCA Recycling, Inc. (“ARCA Recycling”) is the Company’s Recycling segment and provides turnkey recycling services for electric utility energy efficiency programs in the United States. ARCA Canada Inc. (“ARCA Canada”) provides turnkey recycling services for electric utility energy efficiency programs in Canada. Customer Connexx, LLC (“Connexx”) provides call center services for ARCA Recycling and ARCA Canada. On February 19, 2021, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with (i) ARCA Affiliated Holdings Corporation, a Delaware corporation, (ii) ARCA Services Inc., a Delaware corporation, and (iii) Connexx Services Inc, a Delaware corporation (collectively, the “Buyers”), pursuant to which the Buyers agreed to acquire substantially all of the assets, and assume certain liabilities, of ARCA Recycling and Connexx (the “Disposition Transaction”). The principal of the Buyers is Virland A. Johnson, our Chief Financial Officer. On November 14, 2021, the parties entered into an amendment to the Purchase Agreement, which provided for the immediate termination of the transactions proposed by the Purchase Agreement and for an amendment for the Buyers to pay to us a “break fee.” The break fee was amended to an aggregate of $100,000, payable in two $50,000 installments: (i) the first of which is due to be paid on or around August 12, 2022 (the one-year anniversary of the Recycling Sale Agreement and which at the time of filing has not yet been paid) and (ii) the second of which is due to be paid not later than the last day of our next fiscal year, which is December 31, 2022. However, if, prior to the date on which either installment of the amended break fee is payable, we sell ARCA Recycling, ARCA Canada, and Connexx to an otherwise unaffiliated third party for an aggregate amount less than $25 million, then the Buyers will be relieved of their obligation to pay to us any not-yet-then-due installment of the break fee. Additionally, if, prior to the date on which the second installment of the amended break fee is payable, we have not sold ARCA Recycling, ARCA Canada, and Connexx to any third party, then the Buyers will be relieved of their obligation to pay to us the second installment of the break fee. Finally, if, prior to a date on which either installment of the amended break fee is due, we sell ARCA Recycling, ARCA Canada, and Connexx to the Buyers, then, the purchase price therefore will be reduced by an amount equivalent to any break fee that had been previously paid to us by the Buyers and the Buyers shall also be relieved of their obligation to pay to us any not-yet-due installment of the break fee.
GeoTraq Inc. (“GeoTraq”) was the Company’s Technology segment. The Company suspended all operations for GeoTraq during the year ended January 1, 2022. On May 24, 2022, the Company sold substantially all of the GeoTraq assets (see Note 24).
The Company reports on a 52- or 53-week fiscal year. The Company’s 2021 fiscal year (“2021”) ended on January 1, 2022, and the current fiscal year (“2022”) will end on December 31, 2022.
The Company currently faces a challenging competitive environment and is focused on improving its overall profitability, which includes managing expenses. The Company reported net income of approximately $10.7 million and a net loss of approximately $5.0 million for the 13 weeks ended July 2, 2022 and July 3, 2021, respectively, and net income of approximately $11.9 million and a net loss of approximately $4.5 million for the 26 weeks ended July 2, 2022 and July 3, 2021, respectively. In addition, as of July 2, 2022, the Company has total current assets of approximately $6.8 million and total current liabilities of approximately $18.9 million resulting in a net negative working capital of approximately $12.1 million.
The Company has available cash balances and funds available under an accounts receivable factoring program with Prestige Capital Finance, LLC (“Prestige Capital”) to provide sufficient liquidity to fund the entity’s operations and remodeling activities for at least the next twelve months. The Company expects to generate cash from operations for the remainder of fiscal year 2022, given its cost cutting measures in response to the revenue reductions resulting from the Coronavirus. However, depending on continued U.S. restrictions related to the coronavirus public health crisis, the Company cannot be certain its efforts will suffice. The agreement with Prestige Capital allows the Company to obtain advanced funding of 80% of an unpaid customer’s invoice amount within two days and the balance, less a mutually agreed upon fee, upon ultimate collection in cash of the invoice. The Company expects that it will be able to utilize the available funds under the accounts receivable factoring agreement to provide liquidity and to pursue acquisitions and other strategic transactions to expand and grow the business to enhance shareholder value. Management also regularly monitors capital market conditions to ensure no other conditions or events exist that may materially affect the Company’s financial conditions and liquidity and the Company may raise additional funds through borrowings or public or private sales of debt or equity securities, if necessary.
As of January 1, 2022, the Company had recorded a full impairment of the GeoTraq intangible asset. On May 24, 2022, the Company sold substantially all of the GeoTraq assets, as discussed in Note 24 below.
Based on the above, management has concluded that, as of July 2, 2022, the Company is not aware of, and did not identify, any other conditions or events that would cause the Company to not be able to continue business as a going concern for the next twelve months.
In December 2019, the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) surfaced in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization declared a global emergency on January 30, 2020, and most countries initiated travel restrictions limiting travel to other countries and lock-downs within their borders. While various vaccines have been introduced into the marketplace, the impacts of variant strains of the COVID-19 virus is still unknown. The widespread health crisis has adversely affected the global economy, resulting in an economic downturn that could impact demand for our products. To date, the outbreak had a material adverse impact on our operations. For example, several customers in our appliance recycling and appliance replacement business have previously suspended our ability to pick up and or replace their customers’ appliances, resulting in decreased revenues for both recycling and replacement business. The future impact of the outbreak is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted and there is no assurance that the outbreak will not have another material adverse impact on the future results of the Company. The extent of the impact, if any, will depend on future developments, including actions taken to contain the coronavirus. A key task for the Company in 2022 is to begin late-stage clinical development with its pharmaceutical product, JAN101. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted clinical trials, delaying recruitment in most non-COVID-19 clinical trials and even eliminating recruitment in some trials. While clinical sites have largely resumed conducting non-COVID-19 clinical trials, the backlog of subjects may adversely affect our ability to recruit for its trial, leading to longer and more expensive trials. In addition, the unknown effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines, particularly concerning variant strains of COVID-19, could lead to clinical sites terminating patient recruitment again during the course of the study.
