AMERI100 reports POSITIve adjusted EBITDA
FOR The Second quarter of 2018

– Achieves Profitability Goals on Improved Revenue Mix and Cost Reduction Initiatives –

 

ATLANTA, GA., August 14, 2018 -- AMERI Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRH) (“Ameri100” or the “Company”), a specialized SAP® cloud, digital and enterprise services company, today reported its unaudited financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

Second Quarter 2018 vs. Second Quarter 2017

·Revenue of $11.1 million compared to $12.3 million;
·Gross profit of $2.4 million compared to $2.3 million;
·Gross margin of 21.6% compared to 19.0%;
·GAAP net (loss) of $(1.4) million compared to $(3.8) million;
·(Loss) per share of $(0.07) compared to $(0.26); and
·Adjusted EBITDA was $141,000 compared to $(603,000).

 

First Half of 2018 vs. First Half of 2017

·Revenue of $22.1 million compared to $24.6 million;
·Gross profit of $4.7 million compared to $5.6 million;
·Gross margin of 21.4% compared to 22.9%;
·GAAP net (loss) of $(3.5) million compared to $(5.0) million;
·(Loss) per share of $(0.19) compared to $(0.35); and
·Adjusted EBITDA was $30,000 compared to $231,000.

 

“Our second quarter results reflect solid solutions sales and operational execution that takes us across a critical threshold of achieving positive Adjusted EBITDA for both the quarter and for the first half of the year in-line with our profitability guidance,” stated Brent Kelton, Chief Executive Officer at Ameri100. “Gross margins increased by approximately 250 basis points year-over-year on lower revenue as we are deliberately shifting our sales towards high-margin solutions sales and de-emphasizing low-margin professional services revenue. As an example, during the quarter we secured wins in high-growth, high demand segments of the SAP services market, including our first healthcare sector win.

 

“Operationally, we reduced costs by approximately 25% as we continued to restructure and streamline our acquired entities in the quarter. Subsequent to the close of the quarter, we moved to deleverage our balance sheet and support our working capital needs through a private placement that gives us greater operational and financial flexibility with which to pursue solution sales growth.”

 

Concluded Mr. Kelton, “Looking ahead to the second-half of the fiscal year, with a more efficient cost structure, a services offering aligned with high growth segments of the SAP services market and a robust sales pipeline, we have a strong foundation for organic growth. With SAP migrations serving as a tailwind, and with a scalable platform and clean balance sheet, we are actively building a stable of target M&A opportunities to build scale in the fragmented SAP business services market and better realize the earnings power of our business model.”

 

 

 

Updated Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook

Based on 2018 second quarter and first half results and assuming a continued mix shift in favor of higher-margin solution sales, the Company now expects:

 

·Revenues to be comparable with fiscal 2017; and
·Positive adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), information containing non-GAAP financial measures for the Company are disclosed in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Management encourages readers to rely upon the GAAP numbers, but includes the non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental metrics to assist readers.

 

In this press release, the Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure "adjusted EBITDA." Company management uses this non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's performance. As the Company's core business is providing information technology services and products, Company management finds it useful to use "adjusted EBITDA", which does not include interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, preferred stock dividends, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, restructuring expenses and changes in estimates related to acquisitions. While we may have these types of items and charges in the future, Company management believes that they are not reflective of the day- to-day offering of its products and services and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate actions, without predictable trends, and that may obscure the trends and financial performance of the Company's core business. Company management believes the exclusion of the items described above from "adjusted EBITDA" is a very common measure utilized in the investment community and it helps Company management benchmark its operations and results with the industry.

 

The limitation associated with using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these measures exclude items that impact the Company's current period operating results. This limitation is best addressed by using these non-GAAP financial measures in combination with "net income (loss)", and "net income (loss) per diluted share" (the most comparable GAAP measures) because these non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect items that impact current period operating results and may be higher or lower than the most comparable GAAP measure.

AMERI HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JUNE 30, 2018

NOTE 1.
ORGANIZATION:

AMERI Holdings, Inc. (“AMERI”, the “Company”, “we” or “our”) is a fast-growing company that, through the operations of its eleven subsidiaries, provides SAP TM cloud and digital enterprise services to clients worldwide. Headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia, we typically go to market both vertically by industry and horizontally by product/technology specialties and provide our customers with a wide range of business and technology offerings. We work with customers, primarily within North America, to improve process, reduce costs and increase revenue through the judicious use of technology.
 
NOTE 2.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION:

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and Article 10 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Certain information and disclosure notes normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although we believe that the disclosures made are adequate to ensure the information presented is not misleading.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (which were of a normal, recurring nature) that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly our financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of and for the interim periods presented. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

Our comprehensive income (loss) consists of net income (loss) plus or minus any periodic currency translation adjustments.

The results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for any future period. The following information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

New Standards to Be Implemented

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)," which supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in “Revenue Recognition (Topic 605).” This ASU requires an entity to recognize revenue when goods are transferred or services are provided to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. This ASU also requires disclosures enabling users of financial statements to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), deferral of the Effective Date.” With the issuance of ASU 2015-14, the new revenue guidance ASU 2014-09 will be effective for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2018, using one of two prescribed retrospective methods. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, "Revenue from Contracts with Customer (Topic 606), Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing." The guidance is applicable from the date of applicability of ASU 2014-09. This ASU finalizes the amendments to the guidance on the new revenue standard on the identification of performance obligations and accounting for licenses of intellectual property. In December 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-20, “Technical Corrections and Improvements (Topic 606)” which is applicable from the date of applicability of ASU 2014-09. This guidance provides optional exemptions from the disclosure requirement for remaining performance obligations for specific situations in which an entity need not estimate variable consideration to recognize revenue. In May 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12, “Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients”. This amendment clarified certain aspects of Topic 606 and will be applicable from the date of applicability of ASU 2014-09. Based on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the foregoing updates, it does not anticipate such updates will have a material impact on its financial statements.
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)”. This new standard replaces the existing guidance on leases and requires the lessee to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with lease terms equal to or greater than twelve months. For finance leases, the lessee would recognize interest expense and amortization of the right-of-use asset, and for operating leases, the lessee would recognize total lease expense on a straight-line basis. This standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2018. Upon adoption, entities will be required to use a modified retrospective transition which provides for certain practical expedients. Entities are required to apply the new standard at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented. Early adoption of this new standard is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect this new standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. The Company does not expect the requirement to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for operating leases to have a material impact on the presentation of its consolidated statements of financial position.

On November 17, 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Restricted Cash, which is intended to reduce diversity in the presentation of restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. This new standard requires that restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents be included as components of total cash and cash equivalents as presented on the statement of cash flows. As a result, entities will no longer present transfers between cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-18 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017 including interim periods within those fiscal years, but earlier adoption is permitted.  The Company does not believe the adoption of this new standard will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. Under this new standard, goodwill impairment would be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit's carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying value of goodwill. This ASU eliminates existing guidance that requires an entity to determine goodwill impairment by calculating the implied fair value of goodwill by hypothetically assigning the fair value of a reporting unit to all of its assets and liabilities as if that reporting unit had been acquired in a business combination. This update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those periods. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment test performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. Based on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the foregoing update, it does not anticipate such update will have a material impact its financial statements.

Standards Implemented

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (ASU 2016-15), which clarifies how companies present and classify certain cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The company has implemented the above standard effective this quarter and has made the respective disclosures in Statement of Cash Flow.
 
NOTE 3.

Acquisition of Ameri Georgia
 
On November 20, 2015, we completed the acquisition of Bellsoft, Inc., a consulting company based in Lawrenceville, Georgia, which specializes in SAP software, business intelligence, data warehousing and other enterprise resource planning services. Following the acquisition, the name of Bellsoft, Inc. was changed to Ameri100 Georgia Inc. (“Ameri Georgia”). Ameri Georgia has operations in the United States, Canada and India.

The total purchase price of $9.9 million was allocated to net working capital of $4.6 million, intangibles of $1.8 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Ameri Georgia customers over a period of three years, and goodwill. The excess of total purchase price over the net working capital and intangibles allocations has been allocated to goodwill.

Acquisition of Bigtech Software Private Limited
 
On June 23, 2016, we entered into a definitive agreement to purchase Bigtech Software Private Limited (“Bigtech”), a pure-play SAP services company providing a wide range of SAP services including turnkey implementations, application management, training and basis ABAP support. Based in Bangalore, India, Bigtech offers SAP services to improve business operations at companies of all sizes and verticals.

The acquisition of Bigtech was effective as of July 1, 2016, and the total consideration for the acquisition of Bigtech was $850,000, consisting of:

(a)
A cash payment in the amount of $340,000 which was due within 90 days of closing and was paid on September 22, 2016;

Warrants for the purchase of 51,000 shares of our common stock (valued at approximately $250,000 based on the $6.51 closing price of our common stock on the closing date of the acquisition), with such warrants exercisable for two years; and
 
(c)
$255,000, which payable in cash earn-outs to the sellers of Bigtech, if Bigtech achieves certain pre-determined revenue and EBITDA targets in 2017 and 2018. As of August 7, 2018, Bigtech had achieved its earn-out targets and $182,941 in earn-out payments remain to be paid to the former shareholders of Bigtech.

Bigtech’s financial results are included in our condensed consolidated financial results starting July 1, 2016.  The Bigtech acquisition did not constitute a significant acquisition for the Company for purposes of Regulation S-X. The valuation of Bigtech was made on the basis of its projected revenues.

Acquisition of Virtuoso
 
On July 22, 2016, we acquired all of the outstanding membership interests of Virtuoso, L.L.C. (“Virtuoso”), a Kansas limited liability company, pursuant to the terms of an Agreement of Merger and Plan of Reorganization, by and among us, Virtuoso Acquisition Inc., Ameri100 Virtuoso Inc., Virtuoso and the sole member of Virtuoso (the “Sole Member”). Virtuoso is an SAP consulting firm specialized in providing services on SAP S/4 HANA finance, enterprise mobility and cloud migration and is based in Leawood, Kansas. In connection with the merger, Virtuoso’s name was changed to Ameri100 Virtuoso Inc. The Virtuoso acquisition did not constitute a significant acquisition for the Company for purposes of Regulation S-X.
 
The total purchase price of $1.8 million was allocated to intangibles of $0.9 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Virtuoso customers over a period of three years, and the balance was allocated to goodwill. The Virtuoso earn-out payments for 2016 amounted to $0.06 million in cash and 12,408 shares of common stock, which were delivered to the Sole Member during the twelve months ended December 31, 2017.

Acquisition of Ameri Arizona
 
On July 29, 2016, we acquired 100% of the membership interests of DC&M Partners, L.L.C. (“Ameri Arizona”), an Arizona limited liability company, pursuant to the terms of a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement by and among us, Ameri Arizona, all of the members of Ameri Arizona, Giri Devanur and Srinidhi “Dev” Devanur, our former President and Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice Chairman, respectively. In July 2017, the name of DC&M Partners, L.L.C. was changed to Ameri100 Arizona LLC. Ameri Arizona is an SAP consulting company headquartered in Chandler, Arizona. Ameri Arizona provides its clients with a wide range of information technology development, consultancy and management services with an emphasis on the design, build and rollout of SAP implementations and related products.
 
The aggregate purchase price for the acquisition of Ameri Arizona was $15.8 million, consisting of:
 
(a)
A cash payment in the amount of $3,000,000 at closing;
 
(b)
1,600,000 shares of our common stock (valued at approximately $10.4 million based on the $6.51 closing price of our common stock on the closing date of the acquisition), which were to be issued on July 29, 2018 or upon a change of control of our company (whichever occurred earlier). At the election of the former members of Ameri Arizona, in lieu of receiving shares of our common stock, each former member was entitled to receive a cash payment of $2.40 per share; and
 
(c)
Earn-out payments of $1,500,000 payable in cash each year to be paid, if earned, through the achievement of annual revenue and gross margin targets in 2017 and 2018.
 
The total purchase price of $15.8 million was allocated to intangibles of $5.4 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Ameri Arizona customers over a period of three years, and the balance was allocated to goodwill. In August 2018, the Company resolved the payment of all earn-out payments to the former members of Ameri Arizona pursuant to the Ameri Arizona membership interest purchase agreement, and the Company has no further payment obligations with respect to any Ameri Arizona earn-out. As of July 29, 2018, two former members of Ameri Arizona properly elected to receive an aggregate of $2,496,000 in cash in lieu of stock and such payment is due on or about September 28, 2018. On July 30, 2018, we issued 560,000 shares of common stock to the remaining former member of Ameri Arizona who had not elected to receive cash in lieu of stock. Such former member has asserted that he had elected to receive cash instead of stock, but the Company disputes the assertion and will vigorously defend any claims related thereto.
 
Acquisition of Ameri California

On March 10, 2017, we acquired 100% of the shares of ATCG Technology Solutions, Inc. (“Ameri California”), a Delaware corporation, pursuant to the terms of a Share Purchase Agreement among the Company, Ameri California, all of the stockholders of Ameri California (the “Stockholders”), and the Stockholders’ representative. In July 2017, the name of ATCG Technology Solutions, Inc. was changed to Ameri100 California Inc.

Ameri California specializes in providing SAP Hybris, SAP Success Factors and business intelligence services.
 
The aggregate purchase price for the acquisition of Ameri California was $8.8million, consisting of:
 
(a)
576,923 shares of our common stock, valued at approximately $3.8 million based on the closing price of our common stock on the closing date of the acquisition;
 
(b)
Unsecured promissory notes issued to certain of Ameri California’s selling stockholders for the aggregate amount of $3,750,000 (which notes bear interest at a rate of 6% per annum and mature on June 30, 2018);
 
(c)
Earn-out payments in shares of our common stock (up to an aggregate value of $1.2 million worth of shares) to be paid, if earned, in each of 2018 and 2019 based on certain revenue and earnings before interest taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) targets as specified in the purchase agreement. We have determined that the earn-out targets for each year have been fully achieved, and 283,344 shares of common stock were issued in 2018 in respect of the 2017 earn-out period and $605,000 worth of common stock will be issued in January 2019 in respect of the 2018 earn-out period; and
 
(d)
An additional cash payment of $0.06 million for cash that was left in Ameri California at closing.

The total purchase price of $8.8 million was allocated to intangibles of $3.75 million, taking into consideration projected revenue from the acquired list of Ameri California customers over a period of three years, and goodwill. The excess of total purchase price over the intangibles allocation has been allocated to goodwill.  For this acquisition, the net cash outflow in 2017 was $0.2 million.
 
In August 2018, we repaid all of the unsecured promissory notes issued to the Ameri California selling stockholders and we have no further payment obligations pursuant thereto. Our only remaining payment obligation with respect to our acquisition of Ameri California is the issuance of common stock in January 2019 in respect of the 2018 earn-out period.

NOTE 4.
REVENUE RECOGNITION:
 
We recognize revenue primarily through the provision of consulting services. We generate revenue by providing consulting services under written service contracts with our customers. The service contracts we enter generally fall into two categories: (1) time-and-materials contracts and (2) fixed-price contracts.

We consider amounts to be earned once evidence of an arrangement has been obtained, services are delivered, fees are fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. We establish billing terms at the time at which the project deliverables and milestones are agreed. Our standard payment terms are 60 days from invoice date.

When a customer enters into a time-and-materials or fixed-price (or a periodic retainer-based) contract, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with its evaluation of the deliverables in each contract. If the deliverables represent separate units of accounting, the Company then measures and allocates the consideration from the arrangement to the separate units, based on vendor specific objective evidence of the value for each deliverable.

The revenue under time and materials contracts is recognized as services are rendered and performed at contractually agreed upon rates. Revenue pursuant to fixed-price contracts is recognized under the proportional performance method of accounting. We routinely evaluate whether revenue and profitability should be recognized in the current period. We estimate the proportional performance on our fixed-price contracts on a monthly basis utilizing hours incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated hours to complete the project. This method is used because reasonably dependable estimates of costs and revenue earned can be made, based on historical experience and milestones identified in any particular contract. If we do not have a sufficient basis to measure progress toward completion, revenue is recognized upon completion of performance, subject to any warranty provisions or other project management assessments as to the status of work performed.

Estimates of total project costs are continuously monitored during the term of an engagement. There are situations where the number of hours to complete projects may exceed our original estimate, as a result of an increase in project scope, unforeseen events that arise, or the inability of the client or the delivery team to fulfill their responsibilities. Accordingly, recorded revenues and costs are subject to revision throughout the life of a project based on current information and historical trends. Such revisions may result in increases or decreases to revenue and income and are reflected in the consolidated financial statements in the periods in which they are first identified.

If our initial estimates of the resources required or the scope of work to be performed on a contract are inaccurate, or we do not manage the project properly within the planned time period, a provision for estimated losses on incomplete projects may be made. Any known or probable losses on projects are charged to operations in the period in which such losses are determined. A formal project review process takes place quarterly, although projects are continuously evaluated throughout the period. Management reviews the estimated total direct costs on each contract to determine if the estimated amounts are accurate, and estimates are adjusted as needed in the period identified. No losses were recognized on contracts during the six months ended June 30, 2018.
 
NOTE 5.
INTANGIBLE ASSETS:

The Company’s intangible assets primarily consists of the customer lists it acquired through various acquisitions.  We amortize our intangible assets that have finite lives using either the straight-line method or based on estimated future cash flows to approximate the pattern in which the economic benefit of the asset will be utilized. Amortization expense was $1.6 million and $1.5 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively. This amortization expense relates to customer lists which expire through 2022.
 
NOTE 6.
GOODWILL:

Goodwill represents the excess of the aggregate purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired in business combinations. The total value of the Company’s goodwill was $21.9 million as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017.

As per Company policy, goodwill impairment tests are conducted on an annual basis and any impairment is reflected in the Company’s Statements of Operations.

NOTE 8.
OTHER ITEMS:
 
The Company accrued an aggregate of approximately $0.6 million for payment of dividends on its Series A Preferred Stock due for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company has been unable to declare and pay such dividend due to a lack of available cash.

On June 22, 2018, we entered into an Amendment Agreement with Lone Star Value Investors, LP (“LSV”), pursuant to which we and LSV agreed to the amendment and restatement of the certificate of designations (the “Amendment”) for our Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred”) and the issuance of warrants (the “Amendment Warrants”) for the purchase of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock to holders of the Series A Preferred (the “Warrant Issuance”), provided that the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance are subject to approval by our stockholders at our 2018 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”).
 
The Amendment, which will be filed with the Delaware Secretary of State following stockholder approval, provides for, among other things:
 
(a)
the payment of the March 31, 2018 dividend payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred;
 
(b)
elimination of any prior default in respect of non-payment of accrued dividends through the filing effective date of the Amendment (the “Effective Date”);
 
(c)
payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred of dividends for all dividend periods from April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2020 at a rate of 2% per annum of the liquidation preference (the “Adjusted Rate”); and
 
(d)
commencing April 1, 2020, we will pay cash dividends per share at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted Rate multiplied by the liquidation preference; provided, however, dividends for periods ending after April 1, 2020 may be paid at the election of our Board of Directors in-kind through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred for up to four dividend periods in any consecutive 36-month period, determined on a rolling basis.
 
In addition, the Amendment revises the change of control definition to mean a change in control of at least 70% of the voting power of all shares of stock of the Company and clarifies that a change of control shall not be deemed to be a dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company. The Amendment also eliminates voting rights with respect to the authorization, creation or issuance of any securities ranking senior or equal to the Series A Preferred.
 
If our stockholders approve the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance at the 2018 Annual Meeting, promptly following the effectiveness of the Amendment, the Company will complete the Warrant Issuance to holders of the Series A Preferred at such time. The Amendment Warrants shall only be exercisable for cash, with an exercise price of $1.50 per share, for five years from the date of issuance. In the event that the closing price of our common stock is $2.00 or higher for ten trading days out of a fifteen consecutive trading day period, we shall have the option, in our sole discretion, to elect to accelerate the termination date of the Amendment Warrants to such date that is 30 days (or more, in our sole discretion) following the date of such election. Following such accelerated termination date, any unexercised Amendment Warrants shall automatically be canceled without any further obligations on the part of the Company or the holders of such Amendment Warrants. The 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on August 16, 2018.
 
NOTE 9.
BANK DEBT:

On July 1, 2016, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), with its wholly-owned subsidiaries Ameri and Partners Inc. and Ameri Georgia, as borrowers (the “Borrowers”), the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Linear Logics, Corp. and WinHire Inc. (dissolved in March 2017) serving as guarantors, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer, serving as a validity guarantor, and Sterling National Bank, N.A. (as lender and as agent, “Sterling”). The Company joined Ameri California, Virtuoso and Ameri Arizona as borrowers under the Loan Agreement following their respective acquisition.

Under the Loan Agreement, the Borrowers can borrow up to an aggregate of $10 million, which includes up to $8 million in principal for revolving loans (the "Revolving Loans") for general working capital purposes, up to $2 million in principal pursuant to a term loan (the "Term Loan") for the purpose of a permitted business acquisition and up to $200,000 for letters of credit. A portion of the proceeds of the Loan Agreement were also used to repay the November 20, 2015 credit facility that was entered into between the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary Ameri Georgia and Federal National Payables, Inc.

The maturity of the loans under the Loan Agreement are as follows:

Revolving Loan Maturity Date: July 1, 2019; provided, however, that the Revolving Loan Maturity Date will extend and renew automatically for successive one-year terms on each anniversary of the initial Revolving Loan Maturity Date (each an "Anniversary Date") thereafter, unless not less than sixty (60) days prior to any such Anniversary Date, written notice of non-renewal is given by either party to the other, in which case the Revolving Loan Maturity Date will be such next Anniversary Date.

Term Loan Maturity Date: The earliest of (a) the date following acceleration of the Term Loan and/or the Revolving Loans; (b) the Revolving Loan Maturity Date; or (c) July 1, 2019.

Interest under the Loan Agreement is payable monthly in arrears and accrues as follows:

(a)
in the case of Revolving Loans, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 2.00%;

(b)
in the case of the Term Loan, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 3.75%; and

(c)
in the case of other obligations of the Borrowers, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the greater of (A) 3.25% or (B) Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 3.75%.

The Loan Agreement also requires the payment of certain fees, including, but not limited to letter of credit fees and an unused Revolving Loans fee.

The Loan Agreement contains financial and other covenant requirements, including, but not limited to, financial covenants that require the Borrowers to not permit capital expenditures above $150,000 in any fiscal year, maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 2.00 to 1.00 and maintain certain debt to EBITDA ratios. The Loan Agreement also requires the Company and Borrowers to obtain Sterling's consent before making any permitted acquisitions.  The amounts borrowed by the Borrowers under the Loan Agreement are guaranteed by the guarantors, and the Loan Agreement is secured by substantially all of the Borrowers’ assets.
 
Interest paid on the Term Loan during the six months ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $61,656. Principal repaid on the Term Loan during the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $543,200. The short term and long-term outstanding balances on the Term Loan as of June 30, 2018 were $400,000 and $923,466, respectively. The outstanding balance of the Revolving Loans as of June 30, 2018 was $2,027,743.  On August 2, 2018, we repaid the Term Loan.

We are not in compliance with various covenants contained in the Loan Agreement with Sterling National Bank.  We received waivers from Sterling National Bank for our non-compliance with the Loan Agreement for the quarters ended March 31, 2017, June 30, 2017, September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2017 in exchange for the payment of a fee of $5,000 for each quarterly waiver. As a result of our ongoing non-compliance with covenants of the Loan Agreement, Sterling National Bank notified us that it would not provide any further waivers for such non-compliance and advised us to find a new lender.

On July 9, 2018, we received a Notice of Default and Acceleration of Obligations (the “Notice”) from Sterling National Bank. The Notice asserted events of default resulting from the Company’s failure to comply with certain financial covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement and the impaired financial condition of the Company. In the Notice, Sterling National Bank declares that all amounts due in respect of the loans shall be due and payable on August 31, 2018 (the “Termination Date”), and the Borrowers are required to pay Sterling National Bank all amounts due as obligations on or before the Termination Date. Until the Termination Date, Sterling National Bank will continue to fund the Revolving Loans to the Borrowers at its discretion; however, Sterling National Bank may decline to advance funds to the Borrowers at any time in its sole discretion. It is anticipated that, on the Termination Date, the financing commitments shall terminate and no further loans, advances or other extensions of credit will be made to or for the benefit of the Borrowers.
 
If the obligations are not satisfied by the Termination Date, all outstanding obligations will bear interest at the default rate under the Loan Agreement and Sterling National Bank may exercise any or all of its rights and remedies under the loan documents, including foreclosing on any and all collateral. While the Notice does not state that Sterling National Bank is presently exercising, or will exercise prior to the Termination Date, its rights and remedies available upon an event of default, it reserves its right to do so at any time in its sole discretion. The exercise of certain remedies may have a material adverse effect on the liquidity, financial condition and results of operations of the Company and could cause the Company to become bankrupt or insolvent.
 
We pledged substantially all of our assets as collateral under the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement is also supported by a validity guaranty from our former Chief Executive Officer. If Sterling National Bank accelerates the repayment of our loans, there is no assurance that we will have sufficient assets to repay the loans. A default under the Loan Agreement may also result in an event of default under the 2017 Notes (as defined below). We are currently looking for additional sources of financing, however there is no guarantee that we will have additional financing available to us.
 
Our Indian subsidiary Bigtech had a term loan of $9,682 and a line of credit for $324,899 as of June 30, 2018. The Bigtech line of credit is with an Indian bank, HDFC Bank Limited, and was entered into on September 3, 2015 for Bigtech’s working capital requirements. The line of credit is for up to $416,667 with an interest rate of 11.85% per annum and maturity in June 2020. The Bigtech term loan accrues interest at the rate of 10.30% per annum and matures in 2020. Both the term loan and the line of credit were already in place when the Company acquired Bigtech. Interest paid during the six months ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $731 for the term loan and $17,155 line of credit held by Bigtech.  On August 6, 2018, we repaid the Bigtech line of credit.
 
NOTE 10.
CONVERTIBLE NOTES:

On March 7, 2017, we completed the sale and issuance of 8% Convertible Unsecured Promissory Notes (the “2017 Notes”) for aggregate proceeds to us of $1.25 million from four accredited investors, including one of the Company’s then-directors, Dhruwa N. Rai, and David Luci, who became a director of the Company in February 2018. The 2017 Notes were issued pursuant to Securities Purchase Agreements between the Company and each investor. The 2017 Notes bear interest at 8% per annum until maturity in March 2020, with interest being paid annually on the first, second and third anniversaries of the issuance of the 2017 Notes beginning in March 2018. From and after an event of default and for so long as the event of default is continuing, the 2017 Notes will bear default interest at the rate of 10% per annum. The 2017 Notes can be prepaid by us at any time without penalty. As of June 30, 2018, we were not current in the payment of interest on one of the 2017 Notes; however, as of the date of this quarterly report, all interest payments due on the 2017 Notes have been paid in full.

The 2017 Notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal to $2.80. The holders of the 2017 Notes have the right, at their option, at any time and from time to time to convert, in part or in whole, the outstanding principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the 2017 Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price.
 
The 2017 Notes rank junior to our secured credit facility with Sterling National Bank. The 2017 Notes also include certain negative covenants including, without the investors’ approval, restrictions on dividends and other restricted payments and reclassification of its stock.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:

Operating Leases

The Company's principal facility is located in Suwanee, Georgia. The Company also leases office space in various locations with expiration dates between 2016 and 2021. The lease agreements often include leasehold improvement incentives, escalating lease payments, renewal provisions and other provisions which require the Company to pay taxes, insurance, maintenance costs, or defined rent increases. All of the Company's leases are accounted for as operating leases. Rent expense is recorded over the lease terms on a straight-line basis. Rent expense was $147,751 and $153,285 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The increase during the comparative periods is due to the addition of office space through the acquisition of Ameri Arizona, Bigtech and Ameri California.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT:

The group’s financial instruments consist primarily of cash and cash equivalent, accounts receivable, accounts payable, contingent consideration liability and accrued liabilities. The carrying amounts of accounts receivable, accounts payable, cash and cash equivalents and accrued liabilities are considered to be the same as their fair value, due to their short-term nature.

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or an exit price paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The current accounting guidance for fair value measurements defines a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures as follows:

Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2 inputs are quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument; and
Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs based on our own assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value.

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based upon the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table sets forth the financial assets, measured at fair value, by level within the fair value hierarchy as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017:

Contingent consideration pertaining to the acquisitions referred to in note 3 above as of June 30, 2018 has been classified under level 3 as the fair valuation of such contingent consideration has been done using one or more of the significant inputs which are not based on observable market data.

The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated using a discounted cash flow technique with significant inputs that are not observable in the market. The significant inputs not supported by market activity included our probability assessments of expected future cash flows related to the acquisitions during the earn-out period, appropriately discounted considering the uncertainties associated with the obligation, and calculated in accordance with the respective terms of the share purchase agreements.
 
NOTE 13.
NON-CONTROLLING INTEREST:

The subsidiaries of the Company are all direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, and no non-controlling interest is held by the Company as of June 30, 2018.

In prior periods when the Company held non-controlling interests in one of its subsidiaries ,the Company attributed relevant gains and losses to such non-controlling interests in each financial year. During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 the profit attributable to the holders of non-controlling interests amounted to $0 and $(11,872), respectively, as the Company no longer held any non-controlling interests following its 2017 fiscal year.
 
NOTE 14.
RESTRUCTURING AND STREAMLINING COSTS:

During the six ended June 30, 2018, the Company streamlined its operations by eliminating redundant positions across its acquired entities, which resulted in a restructuring charge of approximately $127,100.
 
NOTE 15.
SUBSEQUENT EVENTS:

Private Placement and Securities Purchase Agreement
 
On July 25, 2018, we entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Private Placement Purchase Agreement”) with certain institutional and accredited investors (collectively, the “Purchasers”) in connection with a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of shares of our common stock (“Common Stock”) and warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”). Pursuant to the Private Placement, we agreed to issue 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock or common stock equivalents with an initial per share purchase price of $1.20 and Private Placement Warrants to purchase 4,000,000 shares of common stock with an initial exercise price equal to $1.60 per share, subject to adjustment.  The Private Placement Warrants are immediately exercisable, subject to certain ownership limitations, and expire five years after the date of issuance.  On July 30, 2018, we issued 3,250,000 of the shares of Common Stock to the Purchasers, and 1,750,000 shares of Common Stock will be issued pursuant to pre-funded warrants, subject to adjustment. The aggregate gross proceeds received by us for the Private Placement were approximately $6,000,000, which we have used and are using for the repayment of certain indebtedness, past acquisition obligations and working capital purposes.
 
We must seek stockholder approval for the Private Placement by September 27, 2018. In the event our stockholders do not approve the Private Placement, we are required to seek stockholder approval again by November 15, 2018 and then every four months until the transaction is approved or until the Private Placement Warrants have terminated.
 
The per share purchase price (through the pre-funded warrants) and Private Placement Warrant exercise price will automatically be adjusted lower (the “Price Adjustment”), if applicable, to 80% (with respect to the purchase price of the shares) and 110% (with respect to the exercise price of the Private Placement Warrants) of the lowest of the average daily prices on the 6 trading days after the date that (i) a registration statement covering the resale of the securities being issued in the transaction is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and (ii) our stockholders approve the Private Placement transaction. If all the shares issuable pursuant to the Private Placement Purchase Agreement are not included in the registration statement, another similar adjustment to the per share purchase price and Private Placement Warrant exercise price will occur on the date that such shares may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933. Following any adjustment to the Private Placement Warrant exercise price, the number of shares that may be issued pursuant to a Private Placement Warrant will be proportionately increased. In no event will the purchase price or the Private Placement Warrant exercise price be less than $0.29 per share. In addition, the Private Placement Warrants have transaction-specific anti-dilution provisions.
 
The Private Placement was exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) pursuant to the exemption for transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D of the Securities Act and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws. Each of the Purchasers represented that it is either: (i) an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act or (ii) a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule 144A(a) under the Securities Act. The securities were offered without any general solicitation by the Company or its representatives.
 
Registration Rights Agreement
 
In connection with the Private Placement, we entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Purchasers, effective as of the closing of the Private Placement. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed to prepare and file a registration statement (the “Resale Registration Statement”) with the SEC by August 24, 2018 for purposes of registering the resale of the shares of Common Stock and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Private Placement Warrants. We also agreed to use our reasonable best efforts to cause this registration statement to be declared effective by the SEC by September 23, 2018 (October 23, 2018 in the event the registration statement is reviewed by the SEC). If we fail to meet the specified filing deadlines or keep the Resale Registration Statement effective, subject to certain permitted exceptions, we will be required to pay liquidated damages to the Purchasers. We also agreed, among other things, to indemnify the selling holders under the registration statements from certain liabilities and to pay all fees and expenses incident to our performance of or compliance with the Registration Rights Agreement.
 
Voting Agreement
 
For the benefit of the Purchasers, certain officers, directors and stockholders of the Company, owning approximately 40% of the outstanding number of Common Stock, entered into voting agreements, pursuant to which such stockholders will agree to vote all shares of Common Stock owned by them in favor of the Private Placement.
 
Placement Agent
 
A.G.P. / Alliance Global Partners (“AGP”) acted as exclusive placement agent for the issuance and sale of the securities in the Private Placement. We agreed to pay AGP an aggregate fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds received by us from the sale of the securities in the transaction, plus expenses. We also agreed to grant to AGP or its designees warrants to purchase up to 150,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Placement Agent Warrants”). The Placement Agent Warrants are exercisable on or after the later of (a) the effective date of the registration statement registering the Purchasers’ securities and (b) the date that stockholder approval is obtained and deemed effective, and the Placement Agent Warrants terminate on July 27, 2022. The Placement Agent Warrants have an exercise price of $1.32 per share. The terms of the Placement Agent Warrants are otherwise substantially similar to the terms of the Private Placement Warrants, except the Placement Agent Warrants have customary anti-dilution provisions and do not have the Price Adjustment mechanism. The Placement Agent Warrants and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Placement Agent Warrants will be issued in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as transactions not involving a public offering and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.
 
ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements (and notes thereto) included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. See "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" included elsewhere herein.

We use the terms "we," "our," "us," "AMERI" and "the Company" in this report to refer to AMERI Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.

Company History

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware in February 1994 as Spatializer Audio Laboratories, Inc., which was a shell company immediately prior to our completion of a “reverse merger” transaction on May 26, 2015, in which we caused Ameri100 Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and our newly created, wholly owned subsidiary, to be merged with and into Ameri and Partners Inc (“Ameri and Partners”), a Delaware corporation (the “Merger”).  On May 26, 2015, we completed the Merger, in which we caused Ameri100 Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and our newly created, wholly owned subsidiary, to be merged with and into Ameri and Partners (doing business as Ameri100), a Delaware corporation. As a result of the Merger, Ameri and Partners became our wholly owned operating subsidiary. The Merger was consummated under Delaware law, pursuant to an Agreement of Merger and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of May 26, 2015 (the “Merger Agreement”), and in connection with the Merger we changed our name to AMERI Holdings, Inc. We are headquartered in Suwanee, Georgia.

Overview

We specialize in delivering SAP cloud, digital and enterprise services to clients worldwide. Our SAP focus allows us to provide technological solutions to a broad and growing base of clients. Our model inverts the conventional global delivery model wherein offshore IT service providers are based abroad and maintain a minimal presence in the United States. With a strong SAP focus, our client partnerships anchor around SAP cloud and digital services. We pursue an acquisition strategy that seeks to disrupt the established business model of offshore IT service providers.

We generate revenue by providing consulting services under written service contracts with our customers. The service contracts we enter into generally fall into two categories: (1) time-and-materials contracts and (2) fixed-price contracts.
 
When a customer enters into a time-and-materials or fixed-price (or a periodic retainer-based) contract, the revenue is recognized in accordance with the deliverables of each contract. If the deliverables involve separate units of accounting, the consideration from the arrangement is measured and allocated to the separate units, based on vendor specific objective evidence of the value for each deliverable.
 
The revenue under time and materials contracts is recognized as services are rendered and performed at contractually agreed upon rates. Revenue pursuant to fixed-price contracts is recognized under the proportional performance method of accounting. We routinely evaluate whether revenue and profitability should be recognized in the current period. We estimate the proportional performance on fixed-price contracts on a monthly basis utilizing hours incurred to date as a percentage of total estimated hours to complete the project.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, sales to five major customers accounted for 40% and 41% of our total revenue, respectively. One of our customers contributed 13% of our revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018. For the comparable period in 2017, two customers each contributed 10% each of our revenue,.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, sales to five major customers accounted for 39% and 42% of our total revenue, respectively. Two of our customers contributed 12% and 11% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018. For the comparable period in 2017, two customers each contributed 10% each of our revenue.

We continue to explore strategic alternatives to improve the market position and profitability of our product and service offerings in the marketplace, generate additional liquidity for the Company, and enhance our valuation. We expect to pursue our goals during the next twelve months through organic growth and through other strategic alternatives. Some of these alternatives have included, and could continue to include, selective acquisitions. The Company has obtained financing and additional capital from the sale of equity and incurrence of indebtedness in the past, and continues to consider capital raising and financing from the sale of various types of equity and incurrence of indebtedness to provide capital for our business plans and operations in the future.
 
Matters that May or Are Currently Affecting Our Business

The main challenges and trends that could affect or are affecting our financial results include:
 
·
Our ability to raise additional capital, if and when  needed;

·
Our ability to enter into additional technology-management and consulting agreements, to diversify our client base and to expand the geographic areas we serve;

·
Our ability to attract competent, skilled professionals and on-demand technology partners for our operations at acceptable prices to manage our overhead;

·
Our ability to acquire other technology services companies and integrate them with our existing business; and

·
Our ability to control our costs of operation as we expand our organization and capabilities.

Revenues
 
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 decreased by $1.2 million, or 10%, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2017, mainly because we did not pursue certain low margin  professional services business during the three months ended June 30, 2018.
 
For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, sales to five major customers accounted for approximately 40% and 41% of our total revenue, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, one of our customer contributed 13% of our revenue, and for the three months ended June 30, 2017, two of our customers each contributed 10% of our revenue. We derived most of our revenues from our customers located in North America for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018 decreased by $2.5 million, or 10%, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017, mainly due to a large project in the six months of 2017 for which there was no comparable large project in the first six months ended June 30, 2018 and because we did not pursue certain low margin  professional services business.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, sales to five major customers accounted for 39% and 42% of our total revenue, respectively. Two of our customers contributed 12% and 11% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018. For the comparable period in 2017, two customers each contributed 10% of our revenue. We derived most of our revenues from our customers located in North America for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017.
 
Gross Margin

Our gross margin was 22% for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to 19% for the three months ended June 30, 2017.  The increase in gross margin was due to an increase in project-based revenue which carries higher margin in the three months ended June 30 2018 as compared to three months ended June 30 2017.
 
Our gross margin was 21% for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to 23% for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  The reduction in gross margin was due to the ending of a large project in 2017 which carried a higher margin.

Our target gross margins in future periods are anticipated to be in the range of 20% to 25% based on a mix of project revenues and professional service revenues. However, there is no assurance that we will achieve such anticipated gross margins.

Selling, General and Administration Expenses
 
Selling, general and administration (“SG&A”) expenses include all costs, including rent costs, which are not directly associated with revenue-generating activities, as well as the non-cash expense for stock-based compensation. These include employee costs, corporate costs and facilities costs. Employee costs include administrative salaries and related employee benefits, travel, recruiting and training costs. Corporate costs include reorganization costs, legal, accounting and outside consulting fees. Facilities costs primarily include rent and communications costs.

SG&A expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2018 were $2.6 million, as compared to $4.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017.  SG&A expenses, excluding stock-based compensation expenses decreased by approximately $700,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2018 as the Company continues to restructure and streamline its acquired entities.
 
SG&A expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $5.4 million, as compared to $7.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017.  SG&A expenses, excluding stock-based compensation expenses decreased by approximately $600,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2018 as the Company continues to restructure and streamline its acquired entities.

Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation and amortization expense amounted to $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30 2018 as compared to $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30 2017. We capitalized the customer lists acquired during various acquisitions, resulting in increased amortization costs. The customer lists from each acquisition are amortized over a period of 60 months.
 
Operating Loss
 
Our operating loss was $0.94 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $3.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017. The reduction in our operating loss was primarily driven by lower stock-based compensation expenses and continued reduction in our operating expenses.
 
Our operating loss was $2.31 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $4.14 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The reduction in our operating loss was primarily driven by lower stock-based compensation expenses and continued reduction in our operating expenses.

Interest Expense

Our interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $182,521 as compared to $164,343 for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Our interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $0.4 million as compared to $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increase was mainly due to the full year effect of interest expenses on promissory notes issued to former stockholders of Ameri California in March 2017.

Income Taxes

We recorded no income tax benefit or provision for the three months ended June 30, 2018 or June 30, 2017 or for the six months ended June 30, 2018 or June 30, 2017.

Acquisition Related Expenses

We had acquisition related expenditures of $0 and $0.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and for June 30, 2017, respectively and $0.01 million and $0.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and for June 30, 2017, respectively. These expenses included legal, professional services, valuation and due diligence services and other acquisition related fees incurred in connection with our acquisitions. The decrease was due to the decline in acquisition related activities in the three months and six months ended  June 30, 2018 as compared to June 30, 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash position was $0.9 million as of June 30, 2018, as compared to $4.9 million as of December 31, 2017, a decrease of $4 million primarily due to the use of funds towards working capital and earn-out payments.

Cash used for operating activities was $0.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and was primarily a result of net changes in working capital requirements. Cash used in investing activities was $1.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018. Cash used for financing activities was $2.6 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Private Placement

On July 25, 2018, we entered into the Private Placement Purchase Agreement with certain institutional and accredited investors for the Private Placement of Common Stock and Private Placement Warrants. Pursuant to the Private Placement, we agreed to issue 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock or common stock equivalents with an initial per share purchase price of $1.20 and Private Placement Warrants to purchase 4,000,000 shares of common stock with an initial exercise price equal to $1.60 per share, subject to adjustment.  The Private Placement Warrants are immediately exercisable, subject to certain ownership limitations, and expire five years after the date of issuance.  On July 30, 2018, we issued 3,250,000 of the shares of Common Stock to the Purchasers, and 1,750,000 shares of Common Stock will be issued pursuant to pre-funded warrants, subject to adjustment. The aggregate gross proceeds received by us for the Private Placement were approximately $6,000,000.

The per share purchase price (through the pre-funded warrants) and Private Placement Warrant exercise price will automatically be adjusted lower, if applicable, to 80% (with respect to the purchase price of the shares) and 110% (with respect to the exercise price of the Private Placement Warrants) of the lowest of the average daily prices on the 6 trading days after the date that (i) a registration statement covering the resale of the securities being issued in the transaction is declared effective by the SEC and (ii) our stockholders approve the Private Placement transaction. If all the shares issuable pursuant to the Private Placement Purchase Agreement are not included in the registration statement, another similar adjustment to the per share purchase price and Private Placement Warrant exercise price will occur on the date that such shares may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933. Following any adjustment to the Private Placement Warrant exercise price, the number of shares that may be issued pursuant to a Private Placement Warrant will be proportionately increased. In no event will the purchase price or the Private Placement Warrant exercise price be less than $0.29 per share. In addition, the Private Placement Warrants have transaction-specific anti-dilution provisions.
 
A.G.P. / Alliance Global Partners acted as exclusive placement agent for the issuance and sale of the securities in the Private Placement. We agreed to pay AGP an aggregate fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds received by us from the sale of the securities in the transaction, plus expenses. We also agreed to grant to AGP or its designees warrants to purchase up to 150,000 shares of Common Stock. The Placement Agent Warrants are exercisable on or after the later of (a) the effective date of the registration statement registering the Purchasers’ securities and (b) the date that stockholder approval is obtained and deemed effective, and the Placement Agent Warrants terminate on July 27, 2022. The Placement Agent Warrants have an exercise price of $1.32 per share. The terms of the Placement Agent Warrants are otherwise substantially similar to the terms of the Private Placement Warrants, except the Placement Agent Warrants have customary anti-dilution provisions and do not have the Price Adjustment mechanism.
 
Liquidity Concerns

We incurred recurring losses as a result of costs and expenses related to our selling, general and administration activities and acquisition strategy. As of June 30, 2018, we had negative working capital of $15.3 million and cash of $0.9 million. Our principal sources of cash have included bank borrowings, the private placement of common stock, warrants and convertible notes and the public offering of common stock and warrants. Our operating expenses are likely to continue to grow and, as a result, we will need to generate significant additional revenues to cover such expenses.
 
During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, we were unable to make payments in respect of certain outstanding notes, certain earn-out payments that were due and dividends on our Series A Preferred stock because of a lack of available cash. The aggregate gross proceeds received by the Company from the Private Placement on July 30, 2018 were approximately $6,000,000, and we have used a portion of such proceeds for the repayment of certain outstanding obligations. We are working to raise additional capital from which we will be able to pay other amounts owed; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise any capital or pay the amounts owed.

Our financial statements as of June 30, 2018 have been prepared under the assumption that we will continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to raise additional funding through the issuance of equity or debt securities, as well as to attain further operating efficiencies and, ultimately, to generate additional revenues. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. We can give no assurances that additional capital that we are able to obtain, if any, will be sufficient to meet our needs. The foregoing conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue our operations.
 
Available Credit Facility, Borrowings and Repayment of Debt

On July 1, 2016, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), with its wholly-owned subsidiaries Ameri and Partners Inc. and Ameri Georgia, as borrowers (the “Borrowers”), the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Linear Logics, Corp. and WinHire Inc. (dissolved in March 2017) serving as guarantors, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer, serving as a validity guarantor, and Sterling National Bank, N.A. (as lender and as agent, “Sterling”). The Company joined Ameri California, Virtuoso and Ameri Arizona as borrowers under the Loan Agreement following their respective acquisition.

Under the Loan Agreement, the Borrowers can borrow up to an aggregate of $10 million, which includes up to $8 million in principal for revolving loans (the "Revolving Loans") for general working capital purposes, up to $2 million in principal pursuant to a term loan (the "Term Loan") for the purpose of a permitted business acquisition and up to $200,000 for letters of credit. A portion of the proceeds of the Loan Agreement were also used to repay the November 20, 2015 credit facility that was entered into between the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary Ameri Georgia and Federal National Payables, Inc.

The maturity of the loans under the Loan Agreement are as follows:

Revolving Loan Maturity Date: July 1, 2019; provided, however, that the Revolving Loan Maturity Date will extend and renew automatically for successive one-year terms on each anniversary of the initial Revolving Loan Maturity Date (each an "Anniversary Date") thereafter, unless not less than sixty (60) days prior to any such Anniversary Date, written notice of non-renewal is given by either party to the other, in which case the Revolving Loan Maturity Date will be such next Anniversary Date.

Term Loan Maturity Date: The earliest of (a) the date following acceleration of the Term Loan and/or the Revolving Loans; (b) the Revolving Loan Maturity Date; or (c) July 1, 2019.

Interest under the Loan Agreement is payable monthly in arrears and accrues as follows:

(a)
in the case of Revolving Loans, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 2.00%;

(b)
in the case of the Term Loan, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 3.75%; and

(c)
in the case of other obligations of the Borrowers, a rate per annum equal to the sum of (i) the greater of (A) 3.25% or (B) Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus (ii) 3.75%.
 
The Loan Agreement also requires the payment of certain fees, including, but not limited to letter of credit fees and an unused Revolving Loans fee.

The Loan Agreement contains financial and other covenant requirements, including, but not limited to, financial covenants that require the Borrowers to not permit capital expenditures above $150,000 in any fiscal year, maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 2.00 to 1.00 and maintain certain debt to EBITDA ratios. The Loan Agreement also requires the Company and Borrowers to obtain Sterling's consent before making any permitted acquisitions.  The amounts borrowed by the Borrowers under the Loan Agreement are guaranteed by the guarantors, and the Loan Agreement is secured by substantially all of the Borrowers’ assets.

Interest paid on the Term Loan during the six months ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $61,656. Principal repaid on the Term Loan during the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $543,200. The short term and long-term outstanding balances on the Term Loan as of June 30, 2018 were $400,000 and $923,466, respectively. The outstanding balance of the Revolving Loans as of June 30, 2018 was $2,027,743.  On August 2, 2018, we repaid the Term Loan.

On July 9, 2018, we received a Notice of Default and Acceleration of Obligations from Sterling National Bank. The Notice asserted events of default resulting from the Company’s failure to comply with certain financial covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement and the impaired financial condition of the Company. In the Notice, Sterling National Bank declares that all amounts due in respect of the loans shall be due and payable on August 31, 2018, and the Borrowers are required to pay Sterling National Bank all amounts due as obligations on or before the Termination Date. Until the Termination Date, Sterling National Bank will continue to fund the Revolving Loans to the Borrowers at its discretion; however, Sterling National Bank may decline to advance funds to the Borrowers at any time in its sole discretion. It is anticipated that, on the Termination Date, the financing commitments shall terminate and no further loans, advances or other extensions of credit will be made to or for the benefit of the Borrowers.

If the obligations are not satisfied by the Termination Date, all outstanding obligations will bear interest at the default rate under the Loan Agreement and Sterling National Bank may exercise any or all of its rights and remedies under the loan documents, including foreclosing on any and all collateral. While the Notice does not state that Sterling National Bank is presently exercising, or will exercise prior to the Termination Date, its rights and remedies available upon an event of default, it reserves its right to do so at any time in its sole discretion. The exercise of certain remedies may have a material adverse effect on the liquidity, financial condition and results of operations of the Company and could cause the Company to become bankrupt or insolvent.
 
We pledged substantially all of our assets as collateral under the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement is also supported by a validity guaranty from our former Chief Executive Officer. If Sterling National Bank accelerates the repayment of our loans, there is no assurance that we will have sufficient assets to repay the loans. A default under the Loan Agreement may also result in an event of default under the 2017 Notes. We are currently looking for additional sources of financing, however there is no guarantee that we will have additional financing available to us.
 
Our Indian subsidiary Bigtech had a term loan of $9,682 and a line of credit for $324,899 as of June 30, 2018. The Bigtech line of credit is with an Indian bank, HDFC Bank Limited, and was entered into on September 3, 2015 for Bigtech’s working capital requirements. The line of credit is for up to $416,667 with an interest rate of 11.85% per annum and maturity in June 2020. The Bigtech term loan accrues interest at the rate of 10.30% per annum and matures in 2020. Both the term loan and the line of credit were already in place when the Company acquired Bigtech. Interest paid during the six months ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $731 for the term loan and $17,155 line of credit held by Bigtech. On August 6, 2018, we repaid the Bigtech line of credit.

On March 7, 2017, we completed the sale and issuance the 2017 Notes for aggregate proceeds to us of $1.25 million from four accredited investors, including one of the Company’s then-directors, Dhruwa N. Rai, and David Luci, who became a director of the Company in February 2018. The 2017 Notes were issued pursuant to Securities Purchase Agreements between the Company and each investor. The 2017 Notes bear interest at 8% per annum until maturity in March 2020, with interest being paid annually on the first, second and third anniversaries of the issuance of the 2017 Notes beginning in March 2018. From and after an event of default and for so long as the event of default is continuing, the 2017 Notes will bear default interest at the rate of 10% per annum. The 2017 Notes can be prepaid by us at any time without penalty. As of June 30, 2018, we were not current in the payment of interest on one of the 2017 Notes; however, as of the date of this quarterly report, all interest payments due on the 2017 Notes have been paid in full.

The 2017 Notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal to $2.80. The holders of the 2017 Notes have the right, at their option, at any time and from time to time to convert, in part or in whole, the outstanding principal amount and all accrued and unpaid interest under the 2017 Notes into shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price.
 
The 2017 Notes rank junior to our secured credit facility with Sterling National Bank. The 2017 Notes also include certain negative covenants including, without the investors’ approval, restrictions on dividends and other restricted payments and reclassification of its stock.
 
Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable for the period ended June 30, 2018 were $8 million as compared to $8.8 million as on December 31, 2017.

Accounts Payable

Accounts payable for the period ended June 30, 2018 were $4.9 million as compared to $5.3 million as on December 31, 2017.

Accrued Expenses

Accrued expenses for the period ended June 30, 2018 were $2.2 million as compared to $2.6 million as on December 31, 2017.
 
Operating Activities

Our largest source of operating cash flows is cash collections from our customers. Our primary uses of cash for operating activities are for personnel-related expenditures, leased facilities and taxes.

Off- Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Impact of Inflation

We do not believe that inflation had a significant impact on our results of operations for the periods presented. On an ongoing basis, we attempt to minimize any effects of inflation on our operating results by controlling operating costs and, whenever possible, seeking to ensure that billing rates reflect increases in costs due to inflation.

For all significant foreign operations, the functional currency is the local currency. Assets and liabilities of these operations are translated at the exchange rate in effect at each period end. Statements of Operations accounts are translated at the exchange rate prevailing as of the date of the transaction. The gains or losses resulting from such translation are reported under accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) as a separate component of equity. Realized gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are included in other income, net for the periods presented.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

See Note 2 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information.

Critical Accounting Policies
 
Revenue Recognition. We recognize revenue in accordance with the Accounting Standard Codification 605 “Revenue Recognition.” Revenue is recognized when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, (3) the seller’s price to buyer is fixed and determinable, and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. We recognize revenue from information technology services as the services are provided. Service revenues are recognized based on contracted hourly rates, as services are rendered or upon completion of specified contracted services and acceptance by the customer.
 
Stock-Based Compensation. Stock-based compensation expense for awards of equity instruments to employees and non-employee directors is determined based on the grant-date fair value of those awards. We recognize these compensation costs net of an estimated forfeiture rate over the requisite service period of the award. Forfeitures are estimated on the date of grant and revised if actual or expected forfeiture activity differs materially from original estimates.

Impairment. Long-lived assets, which include property, plant and equipment, and certain other assets to be held and used by us, are reviewed when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable based on estimated future cash flows. If this assessment indicates that the carrying values will not be recoverable, as determined based on undiscounted cash flows over the remaining useful lives, an impairment loss is recognized based on the fair value of the asset.

Income Taxes. We provide for income taxes utilizing the asset and liability method of accounting. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each balance sheet date, based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. If it is determined that it is more likely than not that future tax benefits associated with a deferred income tax asset will not be realized, a valuation allowance is provided. The effect on deferred income tax assets and liabilities of a change in the tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Tax benefits earned on employee stock awards in excess of recorded stock-based compensation expense are credited to additional paid-in capital. Our provision for income taxes also includes the impact of provisions established for uncertain income tax positions, as well as the related interest.
 
Accounts Receivable. We extend credit to clients based upon management’s assessment of their credit-worthiness on an unsecured basis. We provide an allowance for uncollectible accounts based on historical experience and management evaluation of trend analysis. We include any balances that are determined to be uncollectible in allowance for doubtful accounts.

Business Combination. We account for business combinations using the acquisition method, which requires the identification of the acquirer, the determination of the acquisition date and the allocation of the purchase price paid by the acquirer to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, including any contingent consideration and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree at their acquisition date fair values. Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired, including the amount assigned to identifiable intangible assets. Identifiable intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their useful lives. Acquisition-related costs are expensed in the periods in which the costs are incurred. The results of operations of acquired businesses are included in our consolidated financial statements from the acquisition date.

Goodwill and Purchased Intangibles. We evaluate goodwill and purchased intangible assets for impairment at least annually, or as circumstances warrant. Goodwill is evaluated at the reporting unit level by comparing the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount. For purchased intangible assets, if our annual qualitative assessment indicates possible impairment, we test the assets for impairment by comparing the fair value of such assets to their carrying value. In determining the fair value, we utilize various estimates and assumptions, including discount rates and projections of future cash flows. If an impairment is indicated, a write down to the implied fair value of goodwill or fair value of intangible asset is recorded.

Valuation of Contingent Earn-out Consideration. Acquisitions may include contingent consideration payments based on the achievement of certain future financial performance measures of the acquired company. Contingent consideration is required to be recognized at fair value as of the acquisition date. We estimate the fair value of these liabilities based on financial projections of the acquired companies and estimated probabilities of achievement. We believe our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, however, there is significant judgment involved. We evaluate, on a routine, periodic basis, the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration and changes in estimated fair value, subsequent to the initial fair value estimate at the time of the acquisition, will be reflected in income or expense in the consolidated statements of operations. Changes in the fair value of contingent consideration obligations may result from changes in discount periods and rates, changes in the timing and amount of revenue and/or earnings estimates and changes in probability assumptions with respect to the likelihood of achieving the various earn-out criteria. Any changes in the estimated fair value of contingent consideration may have a material impact on our operating results.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information

Factors that may cause actual results, goals, targets or objectives to differ materially from those contemplated, projected, forecasted, estimated, anticipated, planned or budgeted in such forward-looking statements include, among others, the following possibilities: (1) failure to obtain new customers or retain significant existing customers; (2) the loss of one or more key executives and/or employees; (3) changes in industry trends, such as a decline in the demand for Enterprise Resource Planning and Enterprise Performance Management solutions, custom development and system integration services and/or declines in industry-wide information technology spending, whether on a temporary or permanent basis and/or delays by customers in initiating new projects or existing project milestones; (4) inability to execute upon growth objectives, including new services and growth in entities acquired by our Company; (5) adverse developments and volatility involving geopolitical or technology market conditions; (6) unanticipated events or the occurrence of fluctuations or variability in the matters identified as delays in, or the failure of, our sales pipeline being converted to billable work and recorded as revenue; (8) termination by clients of their contracts with us or inability or unwillingness of clients to pay for our services, which may impact our accounting assumptions; (9) inability to recruit and retain professionals with the high level of information technology skills and experience needed to provide our services; (10) failure to expand outsourcing services to generate additional revenue; (11) any changes in ownership of the Company or otherwise that would result in a limitation of the net operating loss carry forward under applicable tax laws; (12) the failure of the marketplace to embrace advisory and product-based consulting services; (13) changes in our utilization levels; (14) competition in our markets; (15) our ability to grow and manage growth profitably; our ability to access additional capital; (16) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (17) the failure to fully integrate acquired businesses; and (18) poor performance of acquired businesses following the closing of the acquisition. In evaluating these statements, you should specifically consider various factors described above. These factors may cause our actual results to differ materially from those contemplated, projected, anticipated, planned or budgeted in any such forward-looking statements.
 
Although we believe that the expectations in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, growth, earnings per share or achievements. However, neither we nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of such statements.

ITEM 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Management's Report on Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and our management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our Company's disclosure controls and procedures. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Company's management, including our Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our company's disclosure controls and procedures are not yet effective as of the end of the period covered by this report as noted below in management's report on internal control over financial reporting. This is largely due to the fact that we are acquiring privately held companies as part of our growth strategy and our control procedures over all acquired subsidiaries will not be effective until such time as we are able to fully integrate the acquisition with our company and set processes and procedures for the acquired entities. We are working to improve and harmonize our financial reporting controls and procedures across all of our companies.  There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls over financial reporting.
 
Disclosure controls and procedures and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time period specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error or fraud. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected.
 
Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Our management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2018, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Our internal control over financial reporting includes maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions and dispositions of our assets; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures are made in accordance with authorizations of management and our directors; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements would be prevented or detected on a timely basis. As a result of this assessment, our management concluded that, as of June 30, 2018, our internal control over financial reporting was not yet effective in providing reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  This is largely due to the fact that we are acquiring privately held companies as part of our growth strategy and our control procedures over all acquired subsidiaries will not be effective until such time as we are able to fully integrate the acquisition with our company and set processes and procedures for the acquired entities.  We are working to improve and harmonize our financial reporting controls and procedures across all of our companies.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q does not include an attestation report of our independent auditors regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by our independent auditors pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit our company to provide only management's report in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

Internal control over financial reporting has inherent limitations which include but is not limited to the use of independent professionals for advice and guidance, interpretation of existing and/or changing rules and principles, segregation of management duties, scale of organization and personnel factors. Internal control over financial reporting is a process, which involves human diligence and compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from human failures. Internal control over financial reporting also can be circumvented by collusion or improper management override. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis, however these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process and it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There were changes to correct certain internal control inadequacies, due to the privately held nature of acquired subsidiaries in our internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during the period covered by this report that have not materially affected, or are not reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1.
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On May 1, 2018, MACT Holdings LLC, one of the former members of our subsidiary, Ameri Arizona, filed suit against us in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York seeking damages in an amount equal to such former member’s potion of accrued but unpaid earn-out payments of approximately $236,950 in respect of the 2017 earn-out period, plus attorneys’ fees and expenses.  All such amounts had been paid as of August 3, 2018. Such former member has also asserted that he had elected to receive cash instead of stock consideration of 560,000 shares of common stock issued to him on July 30, 2018, but the Company disputes the assertion and will vigorously defend any claims related thereto.
 
ITEM 1A.
RISK FACTORS

In addition to the information set forth under Item 1A of Part I to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, the information set forth at the end of Management's Discussion and Analysis entitled "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information," and updates noted below, you should consider that there are numerous and varied risks, known and unknown, that may prevent us from achieving our goals.  If any of these risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or results of operation may be materially and adversely affected.  In such case, the trading price of our common stock could decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment. These risk factors may not identify all risks that we face and our operations could also be affected by factors that are not presently known to us or that we currently consider to be immaterial to our operations.
 
Risk Factors Relating to Our Indebtedness

We have received a notice from our senior secured commercial lender for the termination of our revolving credit facility, which termination could significantly impair our operations and adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

On July 9, 2018, we received a Notice of Default and Acceleration of Obligations from Sterling National Bank. The Notice asserted events of default resulting from the Company’s failure to comply with certain financial covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement and the impaired financial condition of the Company. In the Notice, Sterling National Bank declares that all amounts due in respect of its loans shall be due and payable on August 31, 2018, and the Borrowers are required to pay Sterling National Bank all amounts due as obligations on or before the Termination Date. Until the Termination Date, Sterling National Bank will continue to fund the Revolving Loans to the Borrowers at its discretion; however, Sterling National Bank may decline to advance funds to the Borrowers at any time in its sole discretion. It is anticipated that, on the Termination Date, the financing commitments shall terminate and no further loans, advances or other extensions of credit will be made to or for the benefit of the Borrowers.
 
If the obligations are not satisfied by the Termination Date, all outstanding obligations will bear interest at the default rate under the Loan Agreement and Sterling National Bank may exercise any or all of its rights and remedies under the loan documents, including foreclosing on any and all collateral. While the Notice does not state that Sterling National Bank is presently exercising, or will exercise prior to the Termination Date, its rights and remedies available upon an event of default, it reserves its right to do so at any time in its sole discretion. The exercise of certain remedies may have a material adverse effect on the liquidity, financial condition and results of operations of the Company and could cause the Company to become bankrupt or insolvent.

Our level of indebtedness may make it difficult to repay our debt and may adversely affect our ability to obtain additional financing, use operating cash flow in other areas of our business or otherwise adversely affect our operations. We are currently looking for additional sources of financing, however there is no guarantee that we will have additional financing available to us.
 
ITEM 2.
UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS
 
During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, we did not engage in any unregistered sales of equity securities. On July 30, 2018, we completed a Private Placement of common stock and warrants.  See Note 15 to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2018 for additional information regarding the Private Placement.

ITEM 3.
DEFAULTS UPON SENIOR SECURITIES

During the quarter ended June 30, 2018, we were unable to make payments in respect of certain outstanding notes, certain earn-out payments that are due and dividends on our Series A Preferred stock because of a lack of available cash. The Company raised gross proceeds of $6,000,000 in the Private Placement, which were used for the repayment of certain indebtedness, past due obligations and working capital purposes, but the Company will need to raise additional capital to fully fund all of its obligations. The Company is working to raise capital from which it would be able to pay the amounts owed; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise any additional capital or pay the amounts owed.

On July 9, 2018, we received a Notice of Default and Acceleration of Obligations from Sterling National Bank. The Notice asserted events of default resulting from the Company’s failure to comply with certain financial covenants set forth in the Loan Agreement and the impaired financial condition of the Company. In the Notice, Sterling National Bank declares that all amounts due in respect of the loans shall be due and payable on August 31, 2018, and the Borrowers are required to pay Sterling National Bank all amounts due as obligations on or before the Termination Date. Until the Termination Date, Sterling National Bank will continue to fund the Revolving Loans to the Borrowers at its discretion; however, Sterling National Bank may decline to advance funds to the Borrowers at any time in its sole discretion. It is anticipated that, on the Termination Date, the financing commitments shall terminate and no further loans, advances or other extensions of credit will be made to or for the benefit of the Borrowers.
 
If the obligations are not satisfied by the Termination Date, all outstanding obligations will bear interest at the default rate under the Loan Agreement and Sterling National Bank may exercise any or all of its rights and remedies under the loan documents, including foreclosing on any and all collateral. While the Notice does not state that Sterling National Bank is presently exercising, or will exercise prior to the Termination Date, its rights and remedies available upon an event of default, it reserves its right to do so at any time in its sole discretion. The exercise of certain remedies may have a material adverse effect on the liquidity, financial condition and results of operations of the Company and could cause the Company to become bankrupt or insolvent.

The Company accrued an aggregate of approximately $0.6 million for payment of dividends on its Series A Preferred Stock due for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The Company has been unable to declare and pay such dividend due to a lack of available cash.

On June 22, 2018, we entered into an Amendment Agreement with LSV, pursuant to which we and LSV agreed to the amendment and restatement of the certificate of designations for our Series A Preferred and the issuance of the Amendment Warrants for the purchase of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock to holders of the Series A Preferred (the “Warrant Issuance”), provided that the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance are subject to approval by our stockholders at the 2018 Annual Meeting.
 
The Amendment, which will be filed with the Delaware Secretary of State following stockholder approval, provides for, among other things:
 
(a)
the payment of the March 31, 2018 dividend payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred;
 
(b)
elimination of any prior default in respect of non-payment of accrued dividends through the filing effective date of the Amendment;
 
(c)
payment in-kind in shares of Series A Preferred of dividends for all dividend periods from April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2020 at a rate of 2% per annum of the liquidation preference; and
 
(d)
commencing April 1, 2020, we will pay cash dividends per share at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted Rate multiplied by the liquidation preference; provided, however, dividends for periods ending after April 1, 2020 may be paid at the election of our Board of Directors in-kind through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred for up to four dividend periods in any consecutive 36-month period, determined on a rolling basis.
 
In addition, the Amendment revises the change of control definition to mean a change in control of at least 70% of the voting power of all shares of stock of the Company and clarifies that a change of control shall not be deemed to be a dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company. The Amendment also eliminates voting rights with respect to the authorization, creation or issuance of any securities ranking senior or equal to the Series A Preferred.
 
If our stockholders approve the Amendment and the Warrant Issuance at the 2018 Annual Meeting, promptly following the effectiveness of the Amendment, the Company will complete the Warrant Issuance to holders of the Series A Preferred at such time. The Amendment Warrants shall only be exercisable for cash, with an exercise price of $1.50 per share, for five years from the date of issuance. In the event that the closing price of our common stock is $2.00 or higher for ten trading days out of a fifteen consecutive trading day period, we shall have the option, in our sole discretion, to elect to accelerate the termination date of the Amendment Warrants to such date that is 30 days (or more, in our sole discretion) following the date of such election. Following such accelerated termination date, any unexercised Amendment Warrants shall automatically be canceled without any further obligations on the part of the Company or the holders of such Amendment Warrants. The 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on August 16, 2018.
