Explanatory Note

This Amendment No. 1 to Medbox, Inc.’s Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, initially filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 11, 2014 (the “Original Filing”), includes restated condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 (the “Restated Financials”) and a revised Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, which has been amended to provide disclosure regarding the effect of the Restated Financials.

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company contained in the Original Filing have been restated to correct errors relating to (i) the timing of recognition of certain revenues for certain customer contracts prior to the period in which they were earned, (ii) recognition of investments from related parties as capital contributions, and (iii) improper capitalization of inventory costs. See Note 15 to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” of this report and the information set forth in “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” for additional information. The Company also has restated its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the quarterly periods ended March 30 and June 30, 2014 and the audited condensed consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 set forth in its General Form of Registration of Securities on Form 10 in connection herewith.

The Company has amended and restated in its entirety each item of the Original Filing that required a change to reflect this restatement and to include certain additional information. These items include Item 1 and Item 2 of Part I and Item 6 of Part II of this report. No other information included in the Original Filing is amended hereby.

Except as stated above, this Amendment speaks only as of November 11, 2014 (the “Original Filing Date”), and this filing has not been updated to reflect any events occurring after such date or to modify or update disclosures affected by other subsequent events. In particular, forward-looking statements included in this Amendment represent management’s views as of the Original Filing Date. Such forward-looking statements should not be assumed to be accurate as of any future date. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Company’s other filings made with the SEC subsequent to the Original Filing Date, together with any amendments to those filings.

As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed on December 30, 2014 and March 9, 2015, respectively, the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements previously included in the Original Filing, the Company’s audited condensed consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013 reported in the Company’s General Form of Registration of Securities on Form 10 and the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the quarterly periods ended March 31, and June 30, 2014 and 2013 should not be relied upon until restatements thereof have been filed with the SEC.

Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, this Form 10-Q/A includes new certifications by our principal executive officer and principal financial officer under Sections 302 and 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (RESTATED)

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Medbox, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements as well as the reported expenses during the reporting periods. The Company’s significant estimates and assumptions include the valuation of the Company’s common stock used in the valuation of goodwill, accounts receivable and note receivable collectability, inventory, advances on investments, the valuation of restricted stock and warrants received from customers, the amortization and recoverability of capitalized patent costs and useful lives of long-lived assets the derivative liability, and income tax expense. Some of these judgments can be subjective and complex, and, consequently, actual results may differ from these estimates. Although the Company believes that its estimates and assumptions are reasonable, they are based upon information available at the time the estimates and assumptions were made. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Concentrations of Credit Risk (Restated)

The Company maintains cash balances at several financial institutions in the Los Angeles, California area and Florida. Accounts at each institution are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company’s uninsured balances totaled $967,347 and $0, respectively. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and periodically evaluates the credit worthiness of the financial institutions and has determined the credit exposure to be negligible.

At September 30, 2014, one customer, represented 77.4% of outstanding receivables

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Pursuant to ASC No. 825, Financial Instruments, the Company is required to estimate the fair value of all financial instruments included on its balance sheets. The carrying value of cash, accounts receivable, other receivables, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expenses and notes payable, related party notes payable, customer deposits, provision for customer refunds and short term loans payable approximate their fair value due to the short period to maturity of these instruments. The Company’s marketable securities and related customer deposits require fair value measurement on a recurring basis as the Company has received advance payment of restricted stock in a publicly traded company for contracted services and received warrants for service provided to unrelated third party. The Company has no exposure to gain or loss on the increase or decrease in the value of the marketable securities received as a payment from customer as any shortfall in the ultimate liquidated value of the securities will be supplemented by additional restricted stock from the customer and any liquidation in excess above the Company’s billings will be returned to the customer. The securities received as a payment for services provided will be exposed to gains or losses following their initial evaluation as of the date the revenue was earned.

Warrants and other financial assets received as a payment for the services provided are recorded as “Marketable securities” under the current assets if they are expected to be realized within 12 months. The Company uses the Black-Scholes model to measure the value of the warrants. At each reporting date the Company will reevaluate the value of marketable securities and record any changes in value to other comprehensive income (loss) under “Unrealized gain or losses from marketable securities”.

Embedded derivative - The Company’s convertible notes payable include embedded features that require bifurcation and are accounted for as a separate embedded derivative (see Note 13). The Company has estimated the fair market value of the embedded derivative of the Notes as the difference between the fair market value of the Notes with the conversion feature and the fair market value of the Notes without the conversion feature associated with the embedded derivative, in both cases using relevant market data. In the case of the fair market value of the Notes with the conversion feature, a binomial lattice model was used utilizing a discount rate based on variable conversion probability. In the case of the fair market value of the Notes without the conversion feature associated with the embedded derivative, a discounted cash flow approach was used. The key valuation assumptions used consist of the price of the Company’s stock, a risk free interest rate based on the average yield of a one year Treasury note and expected volatility of the Company’s common stock all as of the measurement dates. The Company considers these inputs Level 3 assumptions.

A three-tier fair value hierarchy is used to prioritize the inputs in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 Quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 Significant unobservable inputs that cannot be corroborated by market data.

The assets or liability’s fair value measurement within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The following table provides a summary of the liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

Revenue Recognition (Restated)

The Company applies the revenue recognition provisions pursuant to ASC No. 605, Revenue Recognition, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue in financial statements filed with the SEC. The guidance outlines the basic criteria that must be met to recognize the revenue and provides guidance for disclosure related to revenue recognition policies.

Revenue is only recognized when the following four criteria are met: 1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, 2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, 3) sales price is fixed and determinable and 4) collectability is reasonably assured. For multi-year contracts with upfront payments made by customers, the upfront payments are recognized over the longer of the contract period or the customer relationship. For contracts that include multiple deliverables such as the build out of customer facilities, the Company recognizes revenue when a milestone is reached in the contract such as securing the location, delivery of dispensing machines or completion of the facility. The contract terms are broken down in specific milestones with specific attributable revenue to be earned upon successful completion of the milestone terms – ( e.g – if a milestone is completing construction on a client dispensary, the condition for the revenue to be recorded is after issuance of a certificate of occupancy for the newly completed facility). The Company will record a specified amount of revenue attributable to this milestone based on the contract). Equipment sales not associated with a consulting contract are recognized as the product is shipped and title passes. Advance payments from clients in advance of work performed are recorded as customer deposits on the balance sheet.

An allowance for bad debt is established for any customer when their balance is deemed as possibly uncollectible.

Provisions for estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are usually provided in the same period the related sales are recorded. The Company will at times allow customers to receive full refunds should regulatory events prevent the customer from being able to operate his contracted location. The provision for returns as well as an allowance for doubtful accounts is included in the Company’s balance sheet as determined by management.

Provisions for estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided in the same period the related sales are recorded. The Company will at times allow customers to get full refunds should political events prevent the customer from being able to operate his or her contracted location. The provision for returns as well as an allowance for bad debts will be included in the Company’s balance sheet should the Company deem such allowances justified.

Cost of Revenues (Restated)

Cost of revenue consists primarily of expenses associated with the delivery and distribution of our products and services. These include expenses related to the manufacture of our dispensary units, construction expense related to the customer dispensary, site selection and establishment of licensing requirements, and consulting expense for the continued management of the dispensary unit build out, server and security equipment, rent expense, energy and bandwidth costs, and support and maintenance costs prior to when the client moves in. We only begin capitalizing costs when we have obtained a license and a site for operation of a customer dispensary or cultivation center. The previously capitalized costs are charged to cost of revenue in the same period that the associated revenue is earned. In the case where it is determined that previously inventoried costs are in excess of the projected net realizable value of the sale of the licenses then the excess cost above net realizable value is written off to cost of revenues. In addition, cost of revenue related to our vaporizer line of products consists of direct procurement cost of the products along with costs associated with order fulfillment, shipping, inventory storage and inventory management costs.

Basic and Fully Diluted Net Income/Loss Per Share

Basic net income/loss per share is computed by dividing net income/loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net incomes per share include the effects of any outstanding options, warrants and other potentially dilutive securities. The Company did not consider any potentially dilutive common shares in the computation of diluted loss per share for the periods ending September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, due to the net loss, as they would have an anti-dilutive effect on EPS.

As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had 3,000,000 shares of Series A preferred stock outstanding with par value of $0.001 that could be converted into 15,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company also had 295,854 warrants to purchase common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2014.

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Bad Debts (Restated)

The Company is subject to credit risk as it extends credit to our customers for work performed as specified in individual contracts. The Company extends credit to its customers, mostly on an unsecured basis after performing certain credit analysis. Our typical terms require the customer to pay a portion of the contract price up front and the rest upon certain agreed milestones. The Company’s management periodically reviews the creditworthiness of its customers and provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a charge to operations and a credit to an allowance for doubtful accounts based on our assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Accounts still outstanding after the Company has used reasonable collection efforts are written off through a charge to the allowance for doubtful accounts. As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company’s management considered all accounts outstanding fully collectible.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Expenditures for major additions and improvements are capitalized and minor replacements, maintenance, and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. When property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is included in the results of operations for the respective period. Depreciation is provided over the estimated useful lives of the related assets using the straight-line method for financial statement purposes. The Company uses accelerated depreciation methods for tax purposes where appropriate. The estimated useful lives for significant property and equipment categories are as follows:

 

Vehicles 5 years
Furniture and Fixtures 5 years
Office equipment 3 years

Assets Held for Resale

During 2014, the Company has entered into various real estate purchase agreements to support the filing of retail dispensary or cultivation facility licenses in certain states and localities. The cost of the acquired real estate is included in Assets Held for Resale on the balance sheet. The Company intends to sell the real estate to a long term investor after the license is granted. Accordingly, the company does not depreciate assets held for resale.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740. The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The components of the deferred tax assets and liabilities are classified as current and non-current based on their characteristics. A valuation allowance is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations.

In addition, the Company’s management performs an evaluation of all uncertain income tax positions taken or expected to be taken in the course of preparing the Company’s income tax returns to determine whether the income tax positions meet a “more likely than not” standard of being sustained under examination by the applicable taxing authorizes. This evaluation is required to be performed for all open tax years, as defined by the various statutes of limitations, for federal and state purposes.

Commitments and Contingencies

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company’s management and its legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the nature of the guarantee would be disclosed.

NOTE 3 – ACQUISITION

On March 22, 2013, the Company entered into a purchase agreement for 100% of the issued and outstanding common stock of Vaporfection International Inc. (“VII”) owned by Vapor Systems International LLC. The Company closed the transaction on April 1, 2013. The Company issued 260,854 warrants to shareholders of VII allowing them to purchase one (1) share of Medbox common stock at $.001 per share beginning April 1, 2013. These warrants were valued for the Company’s accounting purposes at $4.47 per share which represented the fair value of the Company’s common stock as determined by the Company’s independent appraiser. In addition, the Company assumed certain liabilities and a 10% convertible note of VII in the aggregate amount of approximately $470,000. The total value of the acquisition was approximately $1,635,000 and has been allocated in accordance with ASC 805 as per the Company’s independent valuation as follows:

 

Machinery & Equipment

$ 70,000   

IP and related technology

  287,000   

Amortizable intangible assets:

Customer contracts and related relationships

  314,000   

Trade name, trademark, and domain name

  46,000   

Non-compete covenants

  23,000   

Goodwill

  895,000   
  

 

 

 

Total assets acquired

  1,635,000   

Fair value of liabilities assumed

  (469,000
  

 

 

 

Net fair value

$ 1,166,000   
  

 

 

 

The amortizable intangible assets have useful lives not exceeding ten years. No amounts have been allocated to in-process research and development and $895,000 was originally allocated to goodwill. In addition, from the date of acquisition through March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the liabilities assumed have been increased by approximately $10,000 and $195,000 respectively as they have been accrued or settled. No additional adjustments to Goodwill occurred in the six months ended September 30, 2014. Accordingly, $205,000 has also been allocated to goodwill. Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and is not deductible for tax purposes.

The number of warrants available to selling VII shareholders was increased by 130,427 shares in connection with a settlement with such former VII shareholders.

In addition to the above warrants, the purchase agreement and associated consulting contract with the prior management company of the business unit calls for additional shares of common stock to be issued in the event that the performance of the business unit exceeds $11,818,140 of accumulated EBITBA over the subsequent 4 year operating period. The performance payout is contingent upon future events and accordingly the Company has treated the obtainment of that performance provision as being remote and consequently has not assigned any future value to the purchase price.

NOTE 4 – INVESTMENTS

On February 8, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement with Bio-Tech Medical Software, Inc. (“Bio-Tech”) which would allow the Company to purchase 833,333 shares of common stock which would represent 25% of Bio-Tech’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock for $1,500,000. The Company advanced $600,000 upon execution of this agreement for the right to purchase with the remaining balance of $900,000 due and payable in installments at various dates by August 25, 2013. On June 26, 2013, the Company notified Bio-Tech that it was canceling the agreement.

On February 27, 2014, the Company signed a settlement agreement, and in connection therewith, a second amended and restated technology license agreement with Bio-Tech. Pursuant to the second amended and restated technology license agreement, the Company received full licensed right to biometric inventory tracking technology for the term of five years with no additional monies due. All stock transfer between companies was canceled and rescinded.

On June 5, 2014 the Company entered into a sale agreement with an affiliate company owned by the co-founder of the Company for the sale of all Bio-Tech rights and claims and a contribution for legal costs of $4,800 in exchange for the return of 30,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with a fair value of $604,800. These shares are treated as treasury stock and can be reissued.

On March 12, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement with three members of MedVend Holdings LLC (“MedVend”) whereby the Company would acquire 50% of their equity interest in MedVend. The purchase price of the equity interest was $4,100,000. The Company paid an advance of $300,000 upon execution of the contract for the right to purchase and another $300,000 was disbursed as an additional investment to MedVend. In May 2013, the three members of MedVend were named in a lawsuit by that entity’s minority shareholders alleging improper conveyance of the three members’ ownership interest in MedVend to the Company. Accordingly, also in May 2013, Medbox filed suit against MedVend and the three members of that entity that were involved in the transaction.

On June 5, 2014 the Company entered into a sale agreement with an affiliate company owned by the co-founder of the Company for the sale of all the MedVend rights and claims and a contribution for legal costs of $4,800 in exchange for 30,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with a fair value of $604,800. These shares are treated as treasury stock and can be reissued.

The shares of common stock received for the Bio-Tech and MedVend sales to the affiliate company are recorded as treasury stock at cost of $1,209,600 for 60,000 shares.

NOTE 13 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE AND DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

On July 21, 2014, as amended on September 19, 2014 and October 20, 2014, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement whereby the Company agreed to issue convertible debentures (“July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures”) in the aggregate principal amount of $3,500,000, in five tranches. The initial closing in the aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 occurred on July 21, 2014. The second closing in the amount of $1,000,000 occurred on August 26, 2014; the third of $500,000 on September 26, 2014. The fourth and fifth, each in the amount of $500,000, are to occur within 2 and 5 business days, respectively, of the effective date of the registration statement filed by the Company for the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures. The July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures bear interest at the rate of 10% per year. The debt is due July 21, 2015, with repayment, including accrued principal and accrued interest, beginning on the eleventh day of the fourth month after issuance and will continue on the eleventh day of each following 8 successive months thereafter.

Also on September 19, 2014, as amended on October 20, 2014, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement pursuant to which it agreed to issue convertible debentures (“September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2,500,000, in two tranches. The initial closing in the principal amount of $1,000,000 occurred on September 19, 2014. The second closing, of $1,500,000, is to occur within 2 days of the effective date of the registration statement filed by the Company for the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures. The September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures bear interest at the rate of 5% per year. The debt is due September 19, 2015, with repayment, including accrued principal and accrued interest, due in nine monthly installments, commencing the fourth month after issuance.

Both the July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures and September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures, share the following significant terms:

Conversion - All amounts are convertible at any time, in whole or in part, at the option of the holders into shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price, or Fixed Conversion Price, which is subject to adjustment as described below.

The Notes are initially convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at the initial Fixed Conversion Price of $11.75 per share. The Fixed Conversion Price is subject to adjustment for stock splits, combinations or similar events. If the Company makes any subsequent equity sales (subject to certain exceptions), under which an effective price per share that is lower than the Fixed Conversion Price, then the conversion price will be reduced to equal such price. The July 2014 Securities Purchase Agreement exempts any sales pursuant to the September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures from the July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures conversion price adjustments.

The Company may make payments on the debt in cash, prompting a 30% premium or, subject to certain conditions, in shares of common stock valued at 70% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the common stock for the 20 prior trading days. However, in the event the registration statement filed by the Company in connection with the respective purchase agreements is not effective within 120 days of the initial closing date under the July 2014 Purchase Agreement and 120 days of the initial closing date under the September 2014 Purchase Agreement, the July 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures’ and the September 2014 Purchase Agreement Debentures’, respectively, conversion rate will be, during the period commencing 120 days after the initial closing date until the registration statement is effective, equal to 63% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the common stock for the 20 prior trading days. If the aforementioned registration statement is not effective within 160 days of the initial closing date, each of the debentures’ conversion rate will be, during the period commencing 160 days after the initial closing date until the registration statement is effective, equal to 60% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the common stock for the 20 prior trading days.

In connection with each of the purchase agreements, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with the respective investors, pursuant to which the Company agreed to file a registration statement for the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of, or payable as principal and interest on, the respective debentures, within 45 days of the initial closing date under each agreement, and to have such registration statements declared effective within 120 days of the initial closing dates of each purchase agreement.

The $3.5 million principal amount of the Notes were issued net of $227,500 debt origination costs and $1.776 million initial fair value of the embedded derivative. The conversion feature of the notes meets the definition of a derivative under ASC 815 and requires bifurcation and is accounted for as a separate embedded derivative. Therefore, initially the embedded derivative was recorded on the balance sheet as a derivative liability at its estimated fair value of $1.776 million and created a discount on the Notes that will be amortized over the life of the Notes using the effective interest rate method. The fair value of the embedded derivative will be measured and recorded at fair value each subsequent reporting period and changes in fair value will be recognized in the statement of operations as a gain or loss on derivative. See Note 2 Fair value measure for additional information on the fair value and gains or losses on the embedded derivative.

NOTE 18 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company leases property for its day to day operations and has recently begun leasing facilities for possible retail dispensary locations and cultivation locations as part of the process of applying for retail dispensary and cultivation licenses.

Office Leases

On August 1, 2011, the Company entered into a lease agreement for office space located in West Hollywood, California through June 30, 2017 at a monthly rate of $14,397. Starting July 1, 2014, the monthly rent increased by 3% to $14,828 per month.

In addition, the Company leases office facilities located at West Hills, California and Scottsdale, Arizona from unrelated third parties at a monthly rate of $1,300 and $1,420. The West Hills lease is on a month to month basis. The Arizona lease is a non-auto renewing lease with the most current agreement covering the period from May 1, 2014 to October 31, 2014. The company terminated the West Hills and Scottsdale leases effective November 1, 2014.

On December 17, 2013 the Company’s subsidiary Vaporfection International Inc. entered into a 1 year non-cancelable office lease in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The lease started on January 1, 2014 at a monthly rate of $1,981. After December 31, 2014 the lease converts to a month to month basis.

The Company rents virtual offices/meeting spaces in Tokyo, New York, Toronto and Seattle on a month to month basis for an aggregate of approximately $390 per month. The payment is charged to rent expense as incurred.

Total rent expense under operating leases for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $53,114 and $48,069, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $156,716 and $91,983,.

Retail/Cultivation facility leases

The Company’s business model of acquiring retail dispensary and cultivation licenses has made it important to acquire real estate either through lease arrangements or through purchase agreements in order to secure a possible license. On May 8, 2014, the Company entered into a lease agreement for five years with a monthly payment of $7,400 in order to apply for a license and build-out of a location for a client. Also, on July 22, 2014 one of the Company’s subsidiaries Medbox Property Investments, Inc., entered into a new lease for a facility which will be used in the application process for both a dispensary and cultivation facility. The company paid an initial security deposit of $30,000 and the lease is payable monthly at a rate of $20,000 per month. The lease has a five year term, but is contingent upon license approval which allows for early termination of the lease after January 1, 2015 if the license is not granted.

The following table is a summary of our material contractual lease commitments as of September 30, 2014:

NOTE 18 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES, CONTINUED

 

Real Estate Commitments

As part of the changes in the Company’s business model, the Company entered in various real estate purchase agreements at various times in order to allow the filing of retail dispensary or cultivation facility licenses in certain states and localities. These purchase agreements generally provide for a period of due diligence and a termination clause in the event that the Company is unable to obtain a license for its client. The agreements generally also provide for some monthly payment from escrow in order to compensate the real estate owner for the passage of time until the sale transaction is complete. Most of these payment releases from escrow are nonrefundable but applicable towards the purchase price if the Company decides to proceed with the purchase. Subject to approval of the license for a dispensary or cultivation center, the Company intends to close on the real estate where purchase agreements have been signed, or to seek partners to replace the Company on each property purchased.

During the nine months period ended September 30, 2014 the Company paid $634,288 either by deposit into twelve escrow accounts or direct payments to sellers, to secure the purchase and/or extend the closing dates on real estate to be used for future retail/cultivation facilities with an aggregate purchase price of $23,030,000. The real estate purchase agreements have closing dates varying between December 1, 2014 and February 10, 2015.

During the second quarter of 2014 one of the Company’s subsidiaries entered into a real estate purchase agreement in Washington state. The purchase transaction was closed during the third quarter for a total purchase price of $399,594 partially financed by a promissory note for $249,000.

During July 2014 one of the real estate properties that MJ Property Investments, Inc. opened escrow on was foreclosed upon and the agreement was canceled and escrow money in the amount of $10,000 was reimbursed to the Company on July 28, 2014.

During July 2014, MJ Property Investments, Inc. allowed the escrows to expire on two agreements with an aggregate purchase price of $2,500,000 and forfeited $100,000 in earnest money due to unfavorable terms demanded by the sellers to extend the escrow and closing date.

A summary of open real estate purchase transactions as of September 30, 2014 is represented in the table below:

NOTE – 19 RESTATEMENT

On December 30, 2014, Medbox, Inc. (the “Registrant”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original 8-K”) disclosing its determination to (i) amend and restate its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013, the third and fourth quarters of 2013 and the first three quarters of 2014 and (ii) to examine the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year 2012 and the first two quarters of 2013 and, if necessary, to restate those also. Thereafter, management, together with its professional advisor, undertook a comprehensive review of revenue recognition for all periods from 2012 to the present.

Management and the outside professional advisor have completed the review of revenue recognition for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. Conclusions that relate to the periods being restated herein include:

 

  1) Revenue on some contracts with customers was recognized before all required criteria were met, resulting in an overstatement of revenue;

 

  2) Certain transactions with related parties in the amount of $810,000 during the year ended December 31, 2013 were improperly recorded as revenue instead of capital contributions; and,

 

  3) Certain inventory costs in 2013 were improperly capitalized resulting in an understatement of cost of sales. These are costs to seek licenses and locations that should have been recorded as expense prior to executing a contract with a customer, obtaining a license and closing on real estate to operate a dispensary or cultivation center.

The combined impacts of all adjustments to the applicable line items in our consolidated financial statements for the periods covered by this Form 10-Q/A are provided in the tables below.

Financial Statement Presentation. In addition to the restatement of our consolidated financial statements, we have also restated the following items to reflect certain changes noted above.

NOTE 20– SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

During the third quarter of 2014, the CEO of the Company and the Chairman of the Board, Mr. Guy Marsala received 20,000 shares from the founder and major shareholder of the Company out of his personal holdings to compensate for his superior performance. On October 24, 2014 the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors recommended that shares be returned to the founder and issued by the Company as part of the yearly RSU grant. In November 2014, Mr. Marsala returned 20,000 shares to founder and major shareholder and 20,000 additional shares were approved to increase Mr. Marsala’s first year RSU grant from 50,000 RSU’s to 70,000 RSU’s.

On October 17, 2014 the Company entered into an assignment agreement with its affiliate PVM International (PVMI) through which PVMI assigned all rights and titles for any opened escrow on real estate purchase agreements in San Diego in exchange for a related party notes payable from the Company. As of the signing date the agreement was valued at $190,400 which represented the value of escrow deposits paid by PVMI for eight different real estate agreements. Also on the date of the assignment agreement the Company paid $50,000 into an escrow account for PVMI. The escrow was related to one of the eight real estate purchase agreements that were part of the assignment.

As of October 30, 2014 the Company was unsuccessful in obtaining the license associated with one of the locations. As a result the Company canceled one agreement with a purchase price of $3,500,000 and received the earnest money refund in the amount of $60,000 out of initially $100,000 paid; $40,000 represents a non-refundable fee according to the agreement that the escrow would release to seller $10,000 on the first day of each month following the signing and additional $10,000 with signing on July 21, 2014.

On October 20, 2014 the Company received a $155,000 payment on the promissory note receivable from its Canadian partner plus accrued interest of $6,423.56. The full payment retired the note receivable.

Effective November 1, 2014 the Company terminated two leases from unrelated third parties for offices located in West Hills, California and Scottsdale, Arizona with monthly lease payments of $1,300 and $1,420. The West Hills lease was on a month to month basis. The Arizona lease term expired on October 31, 2014.

The Company utilized Dr. Bruce Consulting which is a related party and 100% owned by one of Company’s major shareholder and former Chief Executive Officer for management consulting and advisory service. The Company paid an additional $12,500 for consulting services in November 2014.

On October 13, 2014, Mr. Vincent Mehdizadeh resigned as an officer of the Company. Mr. Mehdizadeh will continue to serve as a consultant to the Company. In his new role, Mr. Mehdizadeh will provide consulting services and will have the title of Founder and Senior Advisor. In connection therewith, on October 13, 2014, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Mr. Mehdizadeh, pursuant to which the Company agreed to pay Mr. Mehdizadeh a monthly fee of $25,000 for consulting services to be performed by Mr. Mehdizadeh. The monthly consulting fee will be reduced to $12,500 per month if Mr. Mehdizadeh is engaged in trading any of the Company’s securities at any time within the preceding 30 day period. The consulting agreement has a two-year term, which term will automatically be extended for successive additional one-year terms, unless either party provides written notice to the other 90 days prior to the expiration of the initial term or any successive term, that Mr. Mehdizadeh’s agreement will not be extended.

As of filing date the Company issued 337,186 shares of common stock to two board members from a total grant of 346,875 awarded by the Compensation Committee to board members.

On October 16, 2014, Thomas Iwanski resigned as Chief Financial Officer, and C. Douglas (“Doug”) Mitchell was elected as Chief Financial Officer of the Company and Corporate Secretary.

Mr. Iwanski agreed to serve as a consultant to the Company for a transition period. The Company agreed to pay Mr. Iwanski $10,000 for services provided during the month of October 2014 and $200 per hour for consulting services rendered after October 31, 2014. The Company also agreed to issue Mr. Iwanski 100,000 Restricted Stock Units (“RSU’s”) for his service to the Company.

In connection with Mr. Mitchell’s election as Chief Financial Officer, on October 16, 2014, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Mitchell (the “Employment Agreement”). Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, the Company agreed to engage Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. Mitchell agreed to serve as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, for a two-year term, which term will automatically be extended for successive additional one-year terms, unless either party provides written notice to the other 90 days prior to the expiration of the initial term or any successive term, that the Employment Agreement will not be renewed. The Company agreed to pay Mr. Mitchell a salary of $190,000 per year and to pay Mr. Mitchell $2,500 per month for living expenses in the West Hollywood, California area.

Mr. Mitchell will also be entitled to an award of restricted stock units, to be issued within 90 days of the effective date of the Employment Agreement, under the Company’s Equity Incentive Plan, in the amount of 7,500 shares of common stock each calendar quarter Mr. Mitchell serves as Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

The Company may terminate the Employment Agreement with or without Cause (as defined in the Employment Agreement) upon written notice to Mr. Mitchell. In the event the Company terminates the Employment Agreement without Cause, Mr. Mitchell terminates the Employment Agreement with Good Reason (as defined in the Employment Agreement), or the Employment Agreement is not renewed as a result of notice to Mr. Mitchell provided 90 days prior to expiration of the initial or a renewal term, Mr. Mitchell will be entitled to payment of one-half his annual salary. Termination by the Company within 365 days of a Change of Control (as defined in the Employment Agreement) in the absence of Cause will conclusively be deemed a termination by the Company without Cause.

On October 22, 2014, Jennifer S. Love was elected to the board of directors of the Company. Ms. Love was also elected to serve as Chairperson of the Audit Committee.

Ms. Love, 52, has been Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer of Cablevision Services Corporation since August 2012. Previously, from 1987 to 2012, Ms. Love was with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, including as Assistant Director of the Security Division from July 2011 to June 2012. Ms. Love received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Jackson State University. Jennifer Love was granted 19,452 RSU’s for 2014. Her contract calls for grants of 100,000 RSU’s for each succeeding year of service beginning on April 1, 2015.

On October 19, 2014, the Company received the sixth (last) warrant for 33,333 shares of common stock as a payment for services provided to MJ Holdings. The warrant was initially valuated at $13,033 using the Black Scholes model.

On October 30, 2014, the Company appointed Tim Morrissey as V.P. and Director of Vaporfection International, Inc. Mr. Morrissey is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Head Choice Inc., which is involved in many facets of the vaporization industry including consultation, manufacturing, sales and distribution.

The Company plans to re-file an amendment to the Form S-1 it filed in connection with the July 2014 and September 2014 purchase agreements to include financial information from this Form 10-Q/A on or about November 14, 2014.

The registration rights agreement entered into in connection with the July 2014 purchase agreement requires the Company to have a Form S-1 declared effective on or before November 18, 2014. As noted above, it is expected the amended Form S-1 will not be effective until December 4, 2014. As a result of the delay in effectiveness for the Form S-1, the conversion rate for the common stock to be issued as repayment of the debentures issued pursuant to the July 2014 purchase agreement will be, during the period commencing 120 days after the initial closing date until to the registration statement is effective, reduced to 63% of the volume weighted average price for 20 days prior to the issuance from 70% of the volume weighted average price originally stipulated in the loan agreements. This reduction in the conversion rate will increase our interest expense beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014.

On November 10, 2014, the Los Angeles Regional Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) notified the Company that it is conducting an investigation pertaining to the Company and issued a subpoena to the Company for documents from December 1, 2011 to the present relating to the matters it is reviewing. The Company plans to cooperate fully with the SEC staff to complete the investigation on a timely basis.

The SEC said it is trying to determine whether there have been any violations of the Federal Securities Laws. It said further that the fact of the investigation does not mean that it has concluded that the Company or anyone else has broken the law or that it has a negative opinion of any person, entity or security.

Overview

We are a leading dispensary infrastructure and licensing specialist, patented technology provider, and partner to the cannabis industry. We offer our patented systems, software and consulting services to pharmacies, alternative medicine dispensaries and local governments in the U.S. and provide medicine-dispensing and compliance technology to clients who are involved in dispensing alternative medicine to end-users. Our systems provide control, accountability, and security. In addition, we provide business opportunities to interested entrepreneurs that want to get involved in the industry by allowing them to participate in the management functions of the dispensary, or being a member of the governing body of the dispensary’s corporate entity, or even own the real estate that houses the dispensary or cultivation facility. Since inception we have focused primarily on the medical marijuana marketplace. Our products and services are directed to help these facility operators gain greater control over these drugs while allowing dispensing in a more economical and controlled manner. In addition, in April of 2013, we purchased Vaporfection International, Inc. which has an award winning tabletop model vaporizer and is about to introduce a portable vaporizer.

We generate revenue from various sources including consulting services we provide to medical marijuana entrepreneurs, sale of our medicine dispensing technologies, the sale of licensing rights, the sale of management rights, the development and sale of geographic territories, referral fees and revenue sharing from real estate transactions with partners, revenue from providing monthly auditing and accountability support to dispensary operators and the sale of vaporizers and certain limited accessories. The continued success of our primary business will depend on states continuing to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes and, equally important, having such states and the individual localities in such states, to the extent required by the applicable state legislation, adopt a corresponding process to both license alternative medicine clinics for dispensing the medical marijuana and licensing cultivation facilities required to grow the plant. The success of our business will require a continuation of the current federal policy of not enforcing the federal prohibition on the use of marijuana in states that have legalized it.

Our current revenue model consists of the following income streams:

 

1. Consulting fee revenues. This revenue stream is a consistent component of our current and anticipated future revenues and is negotiated at the time of the contract. In jurisdictions where there is intense competition for a limited number of licenses, we believe the Medbox model, with its incorporated security measures, promotes a distinct advantage in the application selection process in the states where an applicant is graded on the ability to demonstrate compliance.

 

2. Revenues on dispensary unit and vaporizer sales. Medbox machines retail for approximately $50,000 for each machine set (including the POS system). In addition, many consulting contracts bundle the sale of the dispensary units within the scope of deliverables to be provided that might also include location build out costs Gross margins on our tabletop vaporizer sales and accessories are expected to initially average out to a net loss position due to initial higher manufacturing costs prior to the cost reduction process that we have undertaken. Our introduction of our portable miVape product in the second quarter of 2015 is expected to provide a cost effective product with industry standard margins while providing significant value to the customer.

Table of Contents
3. Other revenue includes sales of territory rights, sales/leases of management rights of newly awarded dispensary licenses, and sales/leases of management rights of newly acquired dispensary licenses and physical locations. We enter in transactions with clients who are interested in being granted the right to have us engage exclusively with them in certain territories (which we describe as territory rights), operating existing dispensary locations and buying previously issued dispensary licenses. Terms for each deal are varied and the sales arrangements typically include the delivery of our dispensing technology and dispensary location build-out. We will also seek to enter into contracts to assign exclusive management rights we have been granted by licensees under management rights agreements for retail, dispensary, or cultivation centers which we have facilitated the granting of licenses for.

 

4. Revenue from referral fees and revenue sharing from real estate transactions with partners. The Company expects to generate revenue from matching its clients with a real estate financing partner to facilitate property purchases and subsequent leasebacks to our clients at a premium to market rates due to the sensitive use (in particular, marijuana retail (sale for recreational purposes), dispensary (sale for medical purposes) and cultivation (marijuana growth and production of marijuana edibles) contemplated to be operated at the leased location. The Company currently has a real estate referral arrangement with MJ Holdings, entered into in May 2014, whereby MJ Holdings issues warrants to purchase shares of its common stock on a monthly basis to the Company during the term of the arrangement and the Company in turn refers industry specific real estate transactions to MJ Holdings in exchange for a 50/50 income sharing split. The agreement is not limited to any specific geographic area. The agreement has an initial 6 month term and will renew automatically for successive one month terms subject to the right of either party to terminate the agreement upon 5 days’ written notice.

 

5. Revenue from the matching of joint venture participants with soon to be licensed dispensaries. The Company expects to generate revenue from clients that wish to participate in the industry and have traditional business background, experience, and strong ties to the state in question where the application is being made. Fees vary in each market area.

 

6. Revenue from providing monthly compliance and accountability support to dispensary operators. The Company expects to generate revenue from providing monthly compliance and accountability support to dispensary operators. Such services will entail bi-weekly onsite reviews of client dispensaries to ensure regulatory compliance, transaction and taxation reporting transparency, and adherence to state licensing guidelines for licensing renewal purposes. Fees will vary in each market area. The Company expects to provide such services based upon internal standards we have established which we believe, if properly followed, will greatly aid the location licensee in its compliance with state and local laws concerning operations of the location. The Company will not require a specific license to provide such services

Comparison of the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

The Company reported a consolidated net loss of $3,796,532 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and $1,011,002 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The increase in net loss of $2,785,530 was primarily due to a few key factors related to the reduction in revenue and increase in operating expenses. Revenue was down for the current period partially due to delays in adoption of final regulations in certain states and delays in approving license applications. Additionally, the Company’s revenue model is significantly different in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to third quarter of 2013. This difference is mainly due to the fact that the Company is moving away from the business model of obtaining licenses for clients for a one-time upfront fee. The Company is in the process of modifying its business model to provide ongoing management and support services for clients so that the consulting contract would continue in perpetuity. During the transition period to a new business model, expenses to secure new contracts and licenses are incurred and revenue is deferred principally until new licenses are obtained and new dispensaries and cultivation centers begin operating.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company hired a new CEO and introduced a new stock compensation plan to attract new talent to the Board of Directors and the management team which added to operating costs including stock compensation expense of $1 million for the quarter. Other causes of operating expense increases were higher bad debt expense, increased public company expenses, higher insurance costs, and increases in sales and marketing expenses related to additional sales staffing, product promotion and lobbying cost increases.

Revenue

Total revenue consisted of revenue from consulting agreements, sale of locations and management rights and finder’s fees which are often bundled together in a single offering to clients and revenue from sales of vaporizers and accessories of the Company’s subsidiary Vaporfection International, Inc. (“VII”).

Consulting Revenue

Consulting revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased $40,455 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013, as there was no consulting revenue recognized in the corresponding period of the prior year.

Delivery of facilities

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013 resulted from the recognition of revenue due to the achievement of milestones and delivery of operating facilities to the clients in Arizona. There were no deliveries in the corresponding period in 2014.

A Company client obtained a provisional license in the state of Oregon but because of delays with local permits for interior build-outs the Company was not able to finalize the delivery of the facility to the client during the third quarter of 2014. The work on the Oregon location and delivery of the location to the client is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2015.

Sale of territories, related party

In the first six months of 2014, the Company entered into a sale for exclusive rights to place the Medbox patented dispensing systems in Denver, Colorado to a related party, for which the related party paid $500,000. This $500,000 is being recognized over the five year term of the agreement, with $25,192 recognized as revenue in the three months ended September 30, 2014.

There was no similar revenue in the comparable period of 2013.

VII-Product sales

In the third quarter of 2014, the Company sold $15,829 of vaporizer products and accessories through our VII operating subsidiary compared to $48,865 during three months ended September 30, 2013. We expect to be able to release our newest portable vaporizer product for general availability late in the second quarter of 2015. We expect the new vaporizer product to restore sales volumes for this product line in 2015.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the costs of revenue stayed fairly consistent at $1,813,562 as compared to $1,807,030 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. As noted in the table above, charges in the third quarter of 2013 for projects in Arizona and associated costs of construction and build outs for clients in the amount of $1,230,377 did not recur. Cost of VII product sold decreased due to lower sales than in the third quarter of 2013. During the third quarter of 2014, the Company recorded a re-valuation for slow moving, older models of vaporizer inventory, wrote off costs for an abandoned site and recorded expenses related to property in escrow.

Cost of inventory

Cost of inventory increased during the third quarter of 2014 to due to the costs associated with developing the new markets in San Diego, Illinois, Washington, Nevada and Oregon as compared to the same period of 2013 when the Company charged to the cost of inventory $264,925 for two locations sold.

Constructions and build-outs

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company reached milestones and delivered operating facilities to the clients in Arizona and incurred the related cost of revenue. There were no similar milestone achievements and deliveries in the corresponding period in 2014.

VII-Product cost

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, the cost of goods sold of VII was $45,512 compared to $73,252 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. Cost of goods sold includes costs associated with shipping and storing the product along with personnel assigned the function to manage the inventory. The reduction in VII product cost of $30,740 is due exclusively to reduction in VII sales.

Re-valuation of vaporizer inventory

During the third quarter of 2014 the Company wrote down slow moving, older models of vaporizer inventory with a charge to cost of revenue of $329,154.

Charge for abandoned site

During third quarter of 2014, one of the Company’s subsidiaries - MJ Property Investments, Inc. allowed the escrows to expire on two real estate purchase agreements with an aggregate purchase price of $2,500,000. As a result the Company forfeited $100,000 in earnest money due to unfavorable terms demanded by the sellers to extend the escrow and closing date.

Charges from escrow deposits

During 2014, the Company entered into numerous real estate contracts to secure locations in connection with the licensing process. The contracts allow the Company to demonstrate to licensing authorities that the locations are available for use as a dispensary or cultivation location. The contracts are generally structured with an escrow deposit, a deferred closing until a license is granted and periodic withdrawals from the deposit to compensate the seller for holding the property off the market in escrow during the pendency of the license application. The periodic transfers out of escrow to the seller are in some cases creditable towards the purchase price but in most cases represent charges in lieu of rent. The charges in lieu of rent and other non-refundable charges paid to property sellers have been recorded as expense in the statement of operations in the amount of $195,712 for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses consist of all other costs incurred during the period other than cost of revenue. The Company incurred $2,365,130 in operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $641,741 for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The increase of $1,723,389 was primarily due to introduction of the new stock based compensation plan. As noted above, during the third quarter of 2014, the Company introduced a new stock compensation plan to attract new talent to the Board of Directors and the management team which added $1,031,640 in stock compensation expense for the quarter. Other factors which contributed to the increase in operating expenses were increase in selling and marketing expenses of $228,068, increases in general and administrative expense of $430,291 and increases in research and development expenses of $33,390.

Sales and Marketing expenses

Sales and marketing expenses include public relations and promotion, lobbying, purchased advertising, travel and entertainment and outside services for sales and marketing consultants and sales lead generation. The Company incurred $319,204 and $91,136 in sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The expense increased by $228,068 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013. The expenses incurred during the three month periods ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 are summarized and described below.

Promotion and purchased advertising increased to $185,193 in the third quarter of 2014 from $17,668 in the third quarter of 2013 due to increased sales efforts in the markets where the Company applied or intended to apply for licenses on behalf of the clients and increased sales efforts related to launch of the new vaporizer model.

The Company incurred lobbying expenses in the second quarter of 2014 in the amount $18,500 in order to promote the Company in states/markets of interest and to participate in the development of new regulations. The Company utilized more lobbying firms in 2014 and reduced public relations expense in a focused effort to secure new licenses.

To perform day-to-day marketing operations, the Company uses independent contractors who are managed by a sales executive who is a Company employee. The employment of a sales executive in 2014 led to additional costs of $60,063 for the three months ended September 30, 2014. There were no similar costs in the third quarter of 2013. Better management and supervision of independent contractors and in-house expertise allowed the Company to reduce the cost of independent contractors by $24,757 to $23,540 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared with $48,297 for the same period of 2013.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company incurred increased expenses for meetings, conferences and trade shows in the amount of $11,047. This additional expense allowed the Company to promote its products and services to a broad range of possible clients at more specialized events. Other sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 consist mainly of employee benefit costs and other expenses. There were no similar expenses for the same period of 2013.

Research and development

Research and development consists of engineering costs for software enhancements to Medbox machines, additional research on vaporizers and patent related expenses. Our research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, were $61,623 and $28,233, respectively. Costs increased due to the Company’s investment in developing new tracking technologies for cultivation facilities that we intend to sell to clients as a package with their consulting agreements, upgrading the POS and software for the new generations of the dispensing machines and patent attorneys fees to manage and apply for patents to protect the Company’s intellectual property.

General and administrative

General and administrative expenses include costs associated with being a public company, legal, lobbying, accounting, payroll, consulting, rent and other costs. The Company’s general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased by $430,291 to $1,031,640 compared to $522,372 for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

The increase of $430,291 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to three months ended September 30, 2013 is primarily due to the increase in the bad debt expense in the amount of $123,600, increases in costs related to being a public company of $98,087, increase in employee and independent contractor costs of $110,795, increases in insurance costs of $43,469 slightly offset by the reductions in lobbying costs with of $21,791 and decrease in VII general and administrative costs.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company identified past due accounts receivable as doubtful for collection and recorded bad debt expense of $123,600. There were no similar events during the third quarter of 2013.

During the three months ended September 30, 2014 the Company incurred $116,490 in costs related to being a public company such as Securities and Exchange Commission counsel and filing fees, independent directors fees and expenses and investor relations costs which in aggregate increased by $98,087 compared to the same period of 2013.

Fund raising expense increased by $14,758 during the three months ended September 30, 2014 over 2013 due to additional efforts to raise additional capital for the Company’s planned growth.

Legal costs increased by $39,439 during the three months ended September 30, 2014 over 2013, as the Company dealt with more general corporate legal matters to form legal entities, defend legal actions and prepare the Company for growth.

During the third quarter of 2014 the Company did not utilize lobbying services related to the general matters which led to a reduction in general and administrative services by $21,791 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the same period of 2013. Some lobbying services were used and described above as a part of sales and marketing expenses.

Employee costs increased by $43,680 for the three months period ended September 2014 compared to the same period of 2013. The increase is mostly due to the employment of the new CEO which was partially offset by reduced costs due to the departure of the previous CEO.

Table of Contents

The increase in independent contractors cost from $30,004 in the third quarter of 2013 to $97,119 in 2014 was caused by additional contractors engaged to assist with operations management and accounting along with management consulting services provided by Dr. Bruce Consulting, a related party.

Insurance expense increased by $43,469 during the three months ended September 30, 2014 due to the introduction in 2014 of directors’ and officers’ insurance, product liability insurance and general business insurance. The Company did not have comparable insurance coverage during the same period of 2013.

As part of “Other expenses” presented in the table above the most significant change for three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to three months of September 30, 2013 was an increase of approximate $7,600 for additional expenses to enhance the corporate web page.

Stock based compensation

As noted above, during the third quarter of 2014, the Company introduced a new stock compensation plan to attract new talent to the Board of Directors and the management team which added $1 million in stock compensation expense for the quarter.

Other Income (Expense)

Other income for three months ending September 30, 2014 increased by $204,773 to $209,084 from $4,311 during the same period of 2013. The three months ended September 30, 2014 include a change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $548,315 related to the new convertible notes payable partially offset by the interest charge from the convertible notes payable in the amount of $347,473. The convertible notes payable funded in the third quarter of 2014 and, accordingly, there are no corresponding charges in the third quarter of 2013.

Net Loss

As a result of the above factors our net loss increased from a loss of $1,011,002 for three months ended September 30, 2013 to a net loss of $3,796,532 for three months ended September 30, 2014.

Comparison of the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013

Overview of Results

The Company reported a consolidated net loss of $6,802,926 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and $2,816,046 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase in net loss of $3,986,880 was primarily due to a few key factors related to the reduction in revenue and the increase in certain identified costs. Revenue was down for the current period as delays in adoption of final regulations in certain states and the ultimate timing of the application process in states with final regulations reduced and delayed the opportunity to apply for new licenses and consequently delayed the notice of the results of any license application made. Additionally, the Company’s revenue model is significantly different in 2014 as compared to 2013. This difference is mainly due to the fact that the Company is moving away from the business model of obtaining licenses for clients for a one-time upfront fee. The Company is in the process of modifying its business model to provide ongoing management and support services for clients so that the consulting contract would continue in perpetuity. During the transition period to a new business model, expenses to secure new contracts and licenses are incurred and revenue is deferred principally until new licenses are obtained and new dispensaries and cultivation centers begin operating.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company hired a new CEO and introduced a new stock compensation plan to attract new talent to the Board of Directors and the management team which added to operating costs including stock compensation expense of $1 million for the period. Other factors which contributed to the increase in operating expenses were increases in bad debt expense on certain accounts receivable, increases in research and development expenses that in comparable periods were often paid directly by an affiliate but now are paid directly by the Company, increases in sales and marketing expenses related to additional sales staffing, product promotion of vaporizers and lobbying cost increases to promote the Company in states/markets of interest and to participate in the development of new regulations.

The Company’s subsidiary VII was acquired on April 1, 2013. Accordingly, the VII expenses did not exist for the first quarter of 2013. Therefore, the results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 are not comparable to the same period of 2014. For ease of review, the VII expenses are presented as a separate item.

Revenue

Revenue consisted of Medbox system sales, sale of locations, finder’s fees, sale of the territory rights and consulting service fees, which are often bundled together in a single offering to clients and revenue from sales of vaporizers and accessories of the Company’s subsidiary VII. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded net revenue of $524,192 compared to $1,844,376 for the same period of 2013, resulting in a reduction of $1,320,184.

Consulting Revenue

The consulting revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 decreased by $438,494 to $112,152 compared to $550,646 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The decline in revenue is due to delays in adopting final regulations in the San Diego, Illinois, Washington, Nevada and Oregon markets which delayed processing of applications and market development.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company applied for licenses on behalf of its clients in the States of Nevada and Illinois.

The Company’s revenue model is significantly different in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to third quarter of 2013, which is mainly due to the fact that the Company had previously adopted a business model of obtaining licenses for its clients for a fixed upfront fee. The Company is currently in the process of modifying its consulting engagements by providing ongoing management and support services for its clients pursuant to consulting contract that continue in perpetuity. The impact of this change is that during the transition period to our new business model, expenses to secure new contracts and licenses are incurred and revenue is deferred principally until new licenses are obtained and new dispensaries and cultivation centers begin operating.

Delivery of facilities

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was due to recognition in the third quarter of revenue due to the achievement of milestones and delivery to the clients of the facilities in Arizona.

The Company obtained a provisional license in the State of Oregon but because of delays with the city permits for interior build-outs could not finalize the delivery of the facility to the client within the quarter.

Sale of locations and management rights

The Company sold management rights for an Arizona location for $175,000.

Sale of territories, related party

In the first six months of 2014, the Company entered into a sale for exclusive rights to place the Medbox patented dispensing systems in Denver, Colorado to the same related party mentioned above in the management rights sale to a related party, for which the related party paid $500,000. This $500,000 is being recognized over the five year term of the agreement, with $50,110 recognized as revenue in the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

There was no similar revenue in the comparable period of 2013.

Finder fee

During the second quarter of 2014 the Company entered into an agreement with MJ Holdings, Inc., a publicly traded company that provides real estate financing and related solutions to licensed marijuana operators. Medbox will market MJ Holdings’ real estate financial products and offerings to its consulting clients and will direct all incoming real estate related opportunities to MJ Holdings (for details see also note to financial statements, Note 11 – Marketable securities and customer deposits). The revenue recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from this agreement was $190,132. There was no similar revenue in 2013.

VII-Product sales

In the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company sold $56,798 worth of vaporizer products and accessories through our VII operating subsidiary. As previously mentioned, a comparison to the same period of 2013 is impracticable due to the fact that there was no VII activity for the first quarter of 2013. We expect to be able to release our newest portable vaporizer product for general availability in the second quarter of 2015. We expect the new vaporizer product to restore sales volume for this subsidiary.

Table of Contents

Construction and build-outs

The Company did not have any sales which would have associated charges to cost of revenue for any construction and build-out costs for the first nine months of 2014 due to delays in adopting final regulations in states in which the Company intends to submit applications and the timing of application submittals for other states and accordingly revenue and related costs of revenue were not recognized. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company reached milestones on contracts and recorded costs of $1,640,919 related to revenue.

Re-valuation of vaporizer inventory

During the third quarter of 2014 the Company wrote down slow moving, older models of vaporizer inventory with a charge to cost of revenue of $329,154.

Charge for abandoned site

During the third quarter of 2014, one of the Company’s subsidiaries, MJ Property Investments, Inc., allowed the escrows to expire on two real estate purchase agreements with an aggregate purchase price of $2,500,000. As a result the Company forfeited $100,000 in earnest money due to unfavorable terms demanded by the sellers to extend the escrow and closing date.

Charges from escrow deposits

During 2014, the Company entered into numerous real estate contracts to secure locations during the licensing process. The contracts allow the Company to demonstrate to licensing authorities that the locations are available for use as a dispensary or cultivation location. The contracts are generally structured with an escrow deposit, a deferred closing until a license is granted and periodic withdrawals from the deposit to compensate the seller for holding the property off the market in escrow during the pendency of the license application. The periodic transfers out of escrow to the seller are in some cases creditable towards the purchase price but in most cases represent charges in lieu of rent. The charges in lieu of rent and other non-refundable charges paid to property sellers have been recorded as expense of $195,712 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 in the statement of operations.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company incurred $140,248 in marketing and sales expenses related to VII activity. As previously mentioned the comparison to the same period of 2013 is impracticable due to the fact that there was no VII activity for the first quarter of 2013. The Company increased its VII sales and marketing expenses due to the fact we expect to launch a new product to the market in the fourth quarter of 2014. The Company expects additional increases in sales and marketing expenses for this business for the rest of the year.

Promotion and purchased advertising increased to $179,879 in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 from $18,053 for the same period in 2013 due to increased sales efforts in the markets where the Company applied or intended to apply for licenses on behalf of clients and increased sales efforts related to launch of the new vaporizer model.

During the first nine months of 2013 the Company incurred a one-time expense of $113,614 for sales and marketing support and lead generation for Kind Clinics, a related party.

The Company reported an increase in lobbying expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 in the amount $111,285 in order to promote the Company in the states/markets of interest. The Company utilized more lobbying firms in 2014 and reduced public relations expense in a focused effort to secure new licenses. In addition, this strategy led to savings of $46,141 in public relations expenses during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the same period of 2013.

To perform day-to-day marketing operations, the Company uses independent contractors who are managed by a sales executive who is a Company employee. The employment of a sales executive in 2014 led to additional costs of $99,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. There were no similar costs in the third quarter of 2013. Better management and supervision of independent contractors and in-house expertise allowed the Company to reduce the cost of independent contractors and outside services during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company increased the expenses for meetings, conferences and trade shows by $45,203 compared to the same period of 2013. This additional expense allowed the Company to promote its products and services to a broad range of possible clients at more specialized events, to become informed about competitors and their products and to receive general and specific knowledge of the industry.

Research and development

Research and development consists of engineering work done on the software enhancements of the Medbox, additional research on vaporizers and patent related expenses. Our research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 were $136,656 and $46,733, respectively. The increase of $89,923 is due to the Company’s additional investment in developing new tracking technologies for cultivation facilities that we intend to sell to clients as a package with their consulting agreements, upgrading the POS and software for the new generations of the dispensing machines and patent attorneys fees to manage and apply for patents to protect the Company’s intellectual property.

General and administrative

General and administrative expenses include costs of being a public company, legal, lobbying, accounting, payroll, consulting, rent and other costs. The Company’s general and administrative expenses increased by $275,237 to $2,151,742 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $1,876,505 for the nine months period ended September 30, 2013.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company incurred $143,076 of general and administrative expenses related to its subsidiary VII. As previously mentioned a comparison to the same period of 2013 is impracticable due to the fact that there was no VII activity for the first quarter of 2013. The Company has been successful in reducing general and administrative costs for VII as part of Medbox, with expenses declining to an average of $47,592 per quarter in 2014.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company incurred additional costs of $245,354 related to being a public company such as Securities and Exchange Commission counsel and filing fees, independent director’s fees and expenses and investor relations costs.

Fund raising consulting expenses decreased by $117,742 during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 even though the Company made additional efforts to raise additional capital for the Company’s planned growth. This decrease is due to the fact that in 2013, the Company discontinued the service of the previously engaged firms with which the Company had unfavorable pricing terms.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company identified past due accounts receivable as doubtful for collection and recorded bad debt expense of $148,600. There were no similar events during the nine months ended September 30,2013.

Legal costs declined by $99,697 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 to $266,383 compared to $366,080 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. This is mostly due to the fact that the Company incurred expenses in the amount of $265,037 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 in legal cost related primarily to the lawsuit on the behalf of the Company’s Arizona clients. The Arizona matter was finalized in 2013. This reduction was offset by the increased general legal expenses related to the general corporate matters incurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

The Company reduced lobbying services related to general matters during the first nine months of 2014. This led to a reduction in general and administrative services by $100,099 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 to $22,700 from $122,799 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Some lobbying services were used and were classified above as a part of sales and marketing expenses.

The decrease of $43,152 in professional accounting service expense to $117,158 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $160,310 for the same period of 2013 is caused by engaging employees and independent contractors instead of sourcing outside firms for accounting services. At the same time this led to an increase in the Company’s expenses related to the independent contractors of $138,540.

Employee costs increased by $14,468. The increase is mostly due to the employment of the new CEO which was partially offset by reduced costs due to the departure of the previous CEO. Partially offsetting the cost increase was the departure of an executive employee saving $17,700 and the reclassification of another employee’s services to cost of revenue starting 2014.The Company expects that its employee related costs will increase during 2014 as we add additional management talent and build out our infrastructure to take advantage of market opportunities

A significant reduction of general and administrative expenses of $12,500 per month for the first six months of 2014 is due to the reduction in the fees from $25,000 to $12,500, paid for management consulting to Vincent Chase, Inc., a related party company. This led to savings of $75,000 in the costs incurred for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the same period of 2013. Starting July 1, 2014, the monthly charge was returned to $25,000. Effective October 1, 2014 Vincent Chase Inc., agreed to reduce the fee to $12,500 per month.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company paid $61,019 in consulting fees to Kind Clinics a related party owned by one of its founders and shareholders. There were no such expenses during the same period of 2014.

Insurance expense increased by $106,969 during the nine months ended September 30, 2014. This was due to the introduction in 2014 of the directors’ and officers’ insurance program, product liability insurance and general business insurance. There were no such expenses during the same period of 2013.

Rent expense during the nine months ended September, 2014 increased by $64,733 to $156,716 compared to $91,983 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. This change is due to the fact that the Company increased its leased office space which led to a monthly rent increase from $5,303 to $14,396 starting June 2013. Starting July 2014 the rent was increased an additional 3% to $14,828. Also during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 the Company incurred an additional $10,688 as a part of total rent expense for our Arizona office. There was no such rent expense during the same period of 2013.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company made donations in the amount of $33,300 compared to $20,800 for the same period of 2013.

As part of “Other expenses” presented in the table above the most significant change for nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to nine months ended September 30, 2013 was an increase of approximately $21,000 for additional expenses to enhance the corporate web page.

Stock based compensation

As noted above, during the third quarter of 2014, the Company introduced a new stock compensation plan to attract new talent to the Board of Directors and the management team which added $1 million in stock compensation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Other Income (Expense)

Other income for the nine months ending September 30, 2014 increased by $236,121 to $234,237 from the loss of $1,884 for the same period of 2013. The nine months ended September 30, 2014 include a change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $548,315 related to the new convertible notes payable partially offset by the interest charge from the convertible notes payable in the amount of $347,473. The convertible notes payable funded in the third quarter of 2014 and, accordingly, there are no corresponding charges in 2013.

Cash Flows – Operating Activities

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, cash flows used in operating activities were $4,651,146, consisting primarily of the net loss for the first nine months of 2014 of $6,252,926, reduced for non-cash adjustments of depreciation and amortization of $59,364, the establishment of a non-cash bad debt provision of $60,000, amortization of a debt discount of $216,224, and stock based compensation of $1,031,640 and increased for the non-cash adjustments of gain from fair value adjustment of derivative liability of $548,315, fair value of marketable securities received as payment for services of $190,132 and profit on the sale of the investments of $9,600. An additional component of cash used in operating activities was an increase in prepaid expenses and other assets of $896,954 related primarily to net deposits paid into escrow accounts of $634,288, deferred loan costs of $196,250 related to convertible notes payable and the balance of the advance funding of $77,645 for the Company’s annual director and officers insurance policy. These operating uses of cash were offset by an decrease in inventory of $110,788, and a net decrease of accounts receivable of $213,424, increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $907,684 due to the timing and deferral of the payment of trade payables and the overall increase in operating costs. In addition, customer deposits and deferred revenue provided net cash during the period of $807,347 and $390,311, respectively, primarily due to the increase in customer deposits collected on contracts prior to work being completed and revenue recognized.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013 cash flows used in operating activities were $3,042,891, consisting primarily of the net loss for the first nine months of 2013 of $2,816,046, as well as the increase in inventories of $135,888, increase in notes receivables from a client of the Company of $55,000, a decrease in deferred revenue of $783,899, and net increase of prepaid expenses of $177,287. The use of the cash flows from operating activities was offset by the non-cash depreciation adjustment of $41,375 and a reduction in accounts receivable with $598,906. In addition, customer deposits provided net cash during the period of $517,675.

Cash Flows – Investing Activities

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, cash flows used in investing activities were $713,759, consisting of the purchase of one property held for resale for $399,594, intangible assets additions for a domain name and patent costs of $166,183, purchases of fixed assets of $32,982 and increases in the balances of notes receivable of $115,000. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, cash flows used in investing activities were $1,388,485, consisting of $1,200,000 in advances for investments and purchase of property and equipment of $188,485.

Cash Flows – Financing Activities

During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, cash flows provided by financing activities were $6,547,344, consisting of $2,442,859 of proceeds from issuance of common stock, $3,500,000 of proceeds from issuance of convertible notes payable, net proceeds from related party notes payable of $379,880 and net proceeds from short term notes of $299,605, offset by payments on a note payable of $75,000 which we acquired as a part of the VII purchase. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, cash flows provided by financing activities were $3,504,775, which consisted of $3,541,090 of proceeds from issuance of common stock, contributions of capital from a related party of $810,000, $150,000 of proceeds from issuance of notes payable less net payments on the related party notes payable of $934,035 and payments of $62,280 on a long term loan.

Future Liquidity and Cash Flows

Management believes that the Company’s cash balances on hand, cash flows expected to be generated from operations, proceeds from current and future expected debt issuances and proceeds from future share capital issuances will be sufficient to fund the Company’s net cash requirements through September, 2015. However, in order to execute the Company’s long-term growth strategy, which may include selected acquisitions of businesses that may bolster the expansion of the Company’s management services business, and purchases of real estate which would be used as a basis for acquiring retail dispensary and cultivation facilities in regulated markets, the Company will need to raise additional funds through public or private equity offerings, debt financings, or other means.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company closed two convertible notes payable agreements with accredited investors which yielded $3.5 million in funding for the Company. In accordance with the same convertible notes payable agreements, we anticipate receiving an additional $250,000 from the same accredited investors in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The Company plans to re-file an amendment to the Form S-1 it filed in connection with the July 2014 and September 2014 purchase agreements to include financial information from this Form 10-Q/A on or about March 2015. The Company expects that the amended Form S-1 will become effective 20 days following the filing of this amendment, pending any comment from the SEC.

Our backlog includes 12 provisional licenses subject to final approval by governmental authorities which may or may not release new licenses in accordance with their own stated timelines. If final licenses are granted, we will receive additional funding from customers in 2015.

After the form S-1 is declared effective, the Company is planning to conduct a road show to raise additional equity capital. The Company will continue to execute on its business model by attempting to raise additional capital through the sales of debt or equity securities or other means, however there is no guarantee that such financing will be available on terms acceptable to the Company, or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate debt or equity financing, it may be forced to slow or reduce the scope of operations and expansion, and its business would be materially affected.

Our primary source of liquidity is cash flows from operations of the Company’s main subsidiary, Prescription Vending Machines, Inc. (DBA – MDS). Our MDS portion of our overall business model related to our existing consulting business relies significantly on the know-how of our management team and its staff to be successful in acquiring licenses and business locations for our clients, in addition to constructing client locations and the sale of our Medbox machines. Since a majority of the revenue from this business is related to services we provide, the timing of receiving the cash has a significant effect on our cash flows. In addition, our overall profitability is impacted by the number of consulting contracts we are able to secure as well as on the avoidance of significant legal and outside professional costs that can be incurred in the process of fulfilling our obligations under each consulting contract. In the case of our MDS consulting business we make milestone payments to our Medbox machine supplier based on where the machines are in the procuring process. This arrangement requires periodic cash outlays, but avoids large disbursements at any one time helping to smooth our cash outflows.

A change in the business model in acquiring retail dispensary and cultivation licenses has made it important to acquire real estate either through lease arrangements or purchase in order to secure a license. This has required the Company to spend cash for earnest deposits on various real estate location opportunities during the quarter and thereafter. The Company intends to find a partner for the acquisition of the various locations so that the Company can apply for more licenses, however, the timing of those partnerships may require the Company to acquire ownership of the underlining real estate for a period of time. This process requires significant cash outlay for the earnest money that has ranged from $10,000 to $100,000 per property.

The Company entered into an assignment agreement with its affiliate PVM International (PVMI) through which PVMI assigned all rights and titles for any opened escrow on real estate purchase agreements in San Diego in exchange for a reimbursement of the amounts paid into aforementioned escrows by PMVI. As of October 17, 2014 the agreement was valued at $190,400 which represented the value of escrow deposits paid by PVMI for eight different real estate agreements. Also based on the assignment agreement the Company advanced to PVMI $75,000 on July 21, 2014 and paid for PVMI into an escrow account $50,000 on October 17, 2014.

In addition, our VII subsidiary has cash demands for the completion of its portable vaporizer product and the follow-on production costs for the new product which we expect to release in the second quarter of 2015. These additional investments along with continued investment into the operating cost of this business will continue to be a net user of cash until Vaporfection’s cash requirements can be re-evaluated after the expected launch of the new portable vaporizer next year.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this report, our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Based on their evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2014, to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is (a) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (b) accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure due to the need for more enhanced and formalized documentation regarding the financial statement closing and review process to ensure that the application of the Company’s accounting policies and the presentation of disclosures in the notes to the financial statements is adequate.

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company hired a new full time CFO. The Company anticipates that the new CFO will assist the Company in the identification of required key controls, the necessary steps required for procedures to ensure the appropriate communication and review of inputs necessary for the financial statement closing process, as well as for the appropriate presentation of disclosures within the financial statements.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

On May 22, 2013, Medbox initiated litigation in the United States District Court in the District of Arizona against three shareholders of MedVend Holdings LLC (“Medvend”). The lawsuit alleges fraud and related claims arising out of a contemplated transaction during the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The litigation is pending and Medbox has sought cancellation of the agreement entered into for an approximate 50% ownership stake in MedVend due to a fraudulent sale of the stock since the shareholders did not have the power or authority to sell their ownership stake in MedVend, and their attempted sale also violated written representations they made. On November 19, 2013 this matter was transferred to United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. MedVend recently joined the suit pursuant to a consolidation order executed by a new judge assigned to the matter. In the litigation, the selling shareholder defendants seek alternatively to have the transaction performed, or to have it unwound and seek damages. Medbox has denied liability with respect to any and all such counterclaims. A new litigation schedule was recently issued setting trial for September 2015.On June 5, 2014, the Company entered into and closed a purchase and sale agreement (the “Medvend PSA”) with PVM International, Inc. (“PVMI”) concerning this matter. Pursuant to the Medvend PSA, the Company sold to PVMI the Company’s rights and claims attributable to or controlled by the Company as a result of the Company’s transactions with those three certain stockholders of Medvend, known as Kaplan, Tartaglia and Kovan, in exchange for the return by PVMI to the Company of 30,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Medvend Rights and Claims”). PVMI is owned by Vincent Mehdizadeh, the Company’s largest stockholder. The Company will have the right, under the Medvend PSA, to purchase from PVMI, at any time, the Medvend Rights and Claims, for the consideration provided by PVMI, plus the sum of any of PVMI’s reasonable expenditures incurred in pursuit of the Medvend Rights and Claims.

On or about September 17, 2014, some but not all of the holders of certain warrants for the Company’s common stock issued in connection with the Company’s 2013 purchase of Vaporfection International, Inc. filed suit against the Company in Circuit Court in Palm Beach County, Florida. The warrant holder plaintiffs contend that they are or were entitled to, in effect, a doubling of their number of shares of common stock subject to their warrants due to the dividend for stockholders announced by the Company in December 2013. The Company had been in negotiations with the warrant holders regarding this matter prior to the lawsuit being filed, and believed that an agreement in principle had been reached, subject to execution of final documentation. The Company is proceeding as planned with finalizing documentation in accordance with this agreement in principle with all non-plaintiff warrant holders while it evaluates its options with respect to the plaintiff warrant holders. A settlement overture was made by the plaintiffs to the Company post-filing, and most of the plaintiffs have now settled. If the matter with the plaintiffs is not resolved by settlement with the three remaining plaintiffs, then management intends to vigorously litigate the matter.

In addition to the above, we may, be subject to various claims and legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business from time to time. We are not currently a party to any pending legal proceedings that we believe will have a material adverse effect on our business or financial condition.
