Description of Business


The Company designs and distributes innovative and superior quality tools and accessories to the home improvement community and the building industry. The Company aspires to augment brand loyalty in part from the enlightened creativity of its end users throughout the global tool market industry. The Company holds exclusive licenses to develop, manufacture, market, and distribute various home improvement and construction product lines for both Do-it-Yourself (“DIY”) and professional trade markets under the TOUGHBUILT® brand name.


TOUGHBUILT® distributes products in the following categories, all designed and engineered in the United States and manufactured by third party vendors in China:


  tool belts, tool bags and other personal tool organizer products;
  complete line of knee pads for various construction applications; and
  job-site tools and material support products consisting of a full line of miter-saws and table saw stands, saw horses/job site tables and roller stands.


The Company believes that its product offerings combine the high quality and ruggedness required to withstand the rigors of use in the construction and DIY industries.


On November 14, 2018, the Company completed its initial public offering (“IPO”), pursuant to which it sold 2,670,000 Class A Units (“Class A Unit”), each Unit consisting of one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, one Series A Warrant to purchase one share of common stock (“Series A Warrant”) and one Series B Warrant to purchase one share of common stock (“Series B Warrant”) at a purchase price of $5.00 per Class A Unit. The Company received net proceeds from the IPO of $12,415,500 after deducting underwriting discounts and commission of $934,500.


Liquidity and Management Plan


In accordance with Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40), the Company’s management evaluates whether there are conditions or events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the condensed financial statements are issued.


As of September 30, 2018, the Company had cash on hand of $58,609. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company incurred a net loss of $7,137,615 and used $1,713,764 of cash in operations. At September 30, 2018, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $18,598,604 and does not expect to experience positive cash flows from operations in the near future as it continues expanding the organization to support planned sales growth while also continuing to invest in research and development of the Company’s products. The Company also expects to incur significant additional expenditures as a public company. Although it is difficult to predict the Company’s liquidity requirements, as of September 30, 2018, and further based upon the Company’s current operating plan and completion of its IPO, management believes that the Company will have sufficient cash to meet its projected operating requirements for at least the next 12 months following the issuance of these condensed financial statements.


Basis of Presentation


These interim condensed financial statements are unaudited and were prepared by the Company in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP) and with the SEC’s instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X.


The preparation of interim condensed financial statements requires management to make assumptions and estimates that impact the amounts reported. These interim condensed financial statements, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the interim periods ended September 30, 2018 and 2017; however, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in our audited annual financial statements, as included in the Company’s Registration Statement, have been condensed or omitted as permitted by GAAP. It is important to note that the Company’s results of operations and cash flows for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations and cash flows to be expected for a full fiscal year or any other interim period.
