     THE ALKALINE WATER COMPANY INC.
(FORMERLY GLOBAL LINES INC.)
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of presentation

The interim consolidated financial statements included herein, presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles and stated in U.S. dollars, have been prepared by the Company, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading.

These statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management, are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained therein. It is suggested that these condensed interim consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company for the period of inception (June 19, 2012) to March 31, 2013 and notes thereto included in the Company’s 8-K current report and all amendments. The Company follows the same accounting policies in the preparation of interim reports.

Results of operations for the interim period are not indicative of annual results.

Principles of consolidation

For the period from June 19, 2012 to March 31, 2013, the consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Alkaline Water Corp. (an Arizona Corporation) and Alkaline 88 LLC (formerly Alkaline 84, LLC) (an Arizona Limited Liability Company). For the period from April 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013, the consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (a Nevada Corporation), Alkaline Water Corp. (an Arizona Corporation) and Alkaline 84, LLC (an Arizona Limited Liability Company).

All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (a Nevada Corporation), Alkaline Water Corp. (an Arizona Corporation) and Alkaline 88, LLC (an Arizona Limited Liability Company) will be collectively referred herein to as the “Company”. Any reference herein to “The Alkaline Water Company Inc.”, the “Company”, “we”, “our” or “us” is intended to mean The Alkaline Water Company Inc., including the subsidiaries indicated above, unless otherwise indicated.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates.

Cash and cash equivalents

For the purpose of the statements of cash flows, all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. The carrying value of these investments approximates fair value.

Fixed assets

The Company records all property and equipment at cost less accumulated depreciation. Improvements are capitalized while repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets or the lease term, whichever is shorter. Depreciation periods are as follows for the relevant fixed assets:

Equipment 5 years

Revenue recognition

The Company recognizes revenue when all of the following conditions are satisfied: (1) there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement; (2) the product or service has been provided to the customer; (3) the amount to be paid by the customer is fixed or determinable; and (4) the collection of such amount is probable.


8

The Company records revenue when it is realizable and earned upon shipment of the finished products.

The Company does not accept returns due to the nature of the product. However, we will provide credit to our customers for damaged goods.

Fair Value Measurements

The valuation of our embedded derivatives and warrant derivatives are determined primarily by the multinomial distribution (Lattice) model. An embedded derivative is a derivative instrument that is embedded within another contract, which under the convertible note (the host contract) includes the right to convert the note by the holder, certain default redemption right premiums and a change of control premium (payable in cash if a fundamental change occurs). In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 815 “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities”, as amended, these embedded derivatives are marked-to-market each reporting period, with a corresponding non-cash gain or loss charged to the current period. A warrant derivative liability is also determined in accordance with ASC 815. Based on ASC 815, warrants which are determined to be classified as derivative liabilities are marked-to-market each reporting period, with a corresponding non-cash gain or loss charged to the current period. The practical effect of this has been that when our stock price increases so does our derivative liability resulting in a non-cash loss charge that reduces our earnings and earnings per share. When our stock price declines, we record a non-cash gain, increasing our earnings and earnings per share. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, there exists a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

Level 1   unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date.
   
Level 2 inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are directly observable for the asset or liability or indirectly observable through corroboration with observable market data.
   
Level 3 unobservable inputs for the asset or liability only used when there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date.

This hierarchy requires the Company to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value.

To determine the fair value of our embedded derivatives, management evaluates assumptions regarding the probability of certain future events. Other factors used to determine fair value include our period end stock price, historical stock volatility, risk free interest rate and derivative term. The fair value recorded for the derivative liability varies from period to period. This variability may result in the actual derivative liability for a period either above or below the estimates recorded on our consolidated financial statements, resulting in significant fluctuations in other income (expense) because of the corresponding non-cash gain or loss recorded.

The following table sets forth the fair value hierarchy within our financial assets and liabilities by level that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2013.

Total derivative liability $  404,075   $  -   $ -   $ 404,075  

Concentration

The Company has 3 major customers that together account for 51% (25%, 14% and 12%, respectively) of accounts receivable at December 31, 2013, and 2 customers that together account for 28% (18% and 10%, respectively) of the total revenues earned for the nine month period ended December 31, 2013.

The Company has 4 vendors that accounted for 80% (37%, 20%, 13% and 10%, respectively) of purchases for the nine month period ended December 31, 2013.

Earnings per share

The Company follows ASC Topic 260 to account for the earnings per share. Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per common share calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding. During periods when common stock equivalents, if any, are anti-dilutive they are not considered in the computation.

Recent pronouncements

The Company has evaluated all the recent accounting pronouncements through January 2014 and believes that none of them will have a material effect on our financial statements.

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability and/or acquisition and sale of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has limited operating history and, accordingly, has generated minimal revenues from operations. Since its inception, the Company has been engaged substantially in financing activities and developing its business plan and incurring startup costs and expenses. As a result, the Company incurred accumulated net losses from Inception (June 19, 2012) through the period ended December 31, 2013 of $(3,349,544). In addition, the Company’s development activities since inception have been financially sustained through debt and equity financing.

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to raise additional capital from the sale of common stock and, ultimately, the achievement of significant operating revenues. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

NOTE 3 – INVENTORY

Inventories consist of the following at:

    December 31,     March 31,  
    2013     2013  
Raw materials $  25,705   $  5,125  
Finished goods   61,476     2,448  
Totals $  87,181   $  7,573  

NOTE 4 – FIXED ASSETS

Fixed assets consisted of the following at:

    December 31,     March 31,  
    2013     2013  
Equipment $  327,228   $  39,897  
Less: accumulated depreciation   (27,687)   (1,814 )
Fixed assets, net $  299,541   $  38,083  


10

Depreciation expense for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2013 was $16,534 and $25,872, respectively.

NOTE 5 – EQUIPMENT DEPOSITS – RELATED PARTY

On February 27, 2013, we paid a $15,000 deposit on equipment that we are purchasing for approximately $146,000. During the nine months ended December 31, 2013, we paid an additional $131,000 for equipment that was completed, and applied the $146,000 of deposits to the purchase price. We also paid an additional $201,900 for more equipment. As of December 31, 2013, the total amount of deposits for equipment is $201,900. The equipment was manufactured by and purchased under an exclusive manufacturing contract from Water Engineering Solutions, LLC, an entity that is controlled and majority owned by Steven P. Nickolas and Richard A. Wright, for the production of our alkaline water.

NOTE 6 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

On November 7, 2013, we sold to certain institutional investors 10% Series B Convertible Preferred Shares which are subject to mandatory redemption and include down-round provisions that reduce the exercise price of a warrant and convertible instrument as required by ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging” if the Company either issues equity shares for a price that is lower than the exercise price of those instruments or issues new warrants or convertible instruments that have a lower exercise price. The Company evaluated whether its warrants and convertible debt instruments contain provisions that protect holders from declines in its stock price or otherwise could result in modification of either the exercise price or the shares to be issued under the respective warrant agreements. The Company determined that a portion of its outstanding warrants and conversion instruments contained such provisions thereby concluding they were not indexed to the Company’s own stock and therefore a derivative instrument.

The range of significant assumptions which the Company used to measure the fair value of warrant liabilities (a level 3 input) at December 31, 2013 is as follows:

    Warrant     Conversion feature  
             
Stock price $ 0.26   $ 0.26  
Term (Years)   1 to 5     1  
Volatility   138% - 306%     138% - 306%  
Exercise prices $ 0.55 To $ 0.25   $ $0.43  
Dividend yield   0%     0%  

The Company analyzed the warrants and conversion feature under ASC 815 to determine the derivative liability. The Company estimated the fair value of these derivatives using a multinomial distribution (Lattice) valuation model. The fair value of these warrant liabilities at December 31, 2013 was $ 224,042 and their conversion feature liability was $180,033. At November 7, 2013 the fair value of these warrant liabilities was $158,199 and the conversion feature liability was $341,801. The change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $95,925 was included in the consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended December 31, 2013.

The following table sets forth the fair value hierarchy within our financial assets and liabilities by level that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of November 7, 2013.

Derivative warrant liability $  341,801   $  -   $ -   $ 341,801  
Total derivative liability $  500,000   $  -   $ -   $   500,000  

The range of significant assumptions which the Company used to measure the fair value of warrant liabilities (a level 3 input) at November 7, 2013 is as follows:

    Warrant     Conversion feature  
             
Stock price $ 0.50   $ 0.50

NOTE 7 – PREFERRED SHARES SUBJECT TO MANDATORY REDEMPTION

Convertible preferred shares

On November 7, 2013, the Company sold to certain institutional investors an aggregate of 500 shares of our 10% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series B Preferred Stock”) at a stated value of $1,000 per share of Series B Preferred Stock for gross proceeds of $500,000. Additionally the investors also received Series A, Series B and Series C common stock purchase warrants. The Series A warrants will be exercisable into 1,162,791 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.55 per share, the Series B warrants will be exercisable into 1,162,791 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.43 per share and the Series C warrants will be exercisable into 1,162,791 shares our common stock at an exercise price of $0.55 per share. Holders of the Series B Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive cumulative dividends at the rate per share (as a percentage of the stated value per share) of 10% per annum, payable semi-annually. Each share of the Series B Preferred Stock will be convertible at the option of the holder thereof into that number of shares of common stock determined by dividing the stated value of such share of the Series B Preferred Stock by the conversion price of $0.43, subject to later adjustment. On November 4, 2013, we also entered into a registration rights agreement with the investors pursuant to which we are obligated to file a registration statement to register the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock and upon exercise of the Warrants.

Effective November 7, 2013, the Company issued Series A common stock purchase warrants to the placement agent and its designees as compensation for the services provided by the placement agent in connection with our private placement of 500.00028 shares of our 10% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, which was completed on November 7, 2013. The Series A warrants issued to the placement agent and its designees are exercisable into an aggregate of 116,279 shares of our common stock with an exercise price of $0.55 per share and have a term of exercise of five years. The Company issued the Series A warrants to six accredited investors and paid certain the transaction cost of $78,000. The issuance of the Series A warrants was exempt from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 506 promulgated thereunder. The Company recorded a debt discount cost of $500,000 and will amortize this cost over the mandatory redemption period. For the nine months ended December 31, 2013 the Company recorded $48,578 of amortization of the debt discount and deferred financing cost. The 10% Series B Preferred Stock included down-round provisions which reduce the exercise price of a warrant and convertible instrument as required by ASC 815 “Derivatives and Hedging”.

NOTE 8 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Preferred shares

On October 7, 2013, the Company amended its articles of incorporation to create 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock by filing a Certificate of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. The preferred stock may be divided into and issued in series, with such designations, rights, qualifications, preferences, limitations and terms as fixed and determined by our board of directors.

Grant of Series A Preferred stock

Effective October 8, 2013, the Company issued a total of 20,000,000 shares of non-convertible Series A Preferred Stock to Steven A. Nickolas and Richard A. Wright (10,000,000 shares to each), our directors and executive officers, in consideration for the past services, at a deemed value of $0.001 per share. The Company issued these shares to two U.S. Persons (as that term is defined in Regulation S of the Securities Act of 1933) and in issuing securities we relied on the registration exemption provided for in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933. The company valued these shares based on the cost considering the time and average billing rate of these individuals and recorded a $20,000 stock compensation cost for nine months ended December 31, 2013.

Common stock

We are authorized to issue 1,125,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock. On May 31, 2013, we effected a 15-for-1 forward stock split of our $0.001 par value common stock. All shares and per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the split discussed above.

Prior to the acquisition of Alkaline Water Corp., we had 109,500,000 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

On May 31, 2013, we issued 43,000,000 shares in exchange for a 100% interest in Alkaline Water Corp. For accounting purposes, the acquisition of Alkaline Water Corp. by The Alkaline Water Company Inc. has been recorded as a reverse acquisition of a company and recapitalization of Alkaline Water Corp. based on the factors demonstrating that Alkaline Water Corp. represents the accounting acquirer. Consequently, after the closing of this agreement we adopted the business of Alkaline Water Corp.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Alkaline 88, LLC.

As part of the acquisition, the former management of the Company agreed to cancel 75,000,000 shares of common stock.

Sale of restricted shares

Effective October 8, 2013, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,250,000 shares of our common stock to three investors in a non-brokered private placement, at a purchase price of $0.40 per share for gross proceeds of $500,000. In addition, the Company issued 1,250,000 units to a finder in connection with this private placement. Each unit consisted of one share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase, for a period of two years from issuance, one share of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share and one-half of one share purchase warrant, with each whole share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase, for a period of two years from issuance, one share of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.60 per share.

On May 31, 2013, the Company sold 1,312,500 units at $0.40 per share for total cash of $525,000. Each unit consisted of one share of common stock, one warrant which entitles the holder to purchase one share of common stock for a period of 2 years with an exercise price of $0.50 per share, and 1/2 warrant which entitles the holder to purchase 1/2 share of common stock for a period of 2 years with an exercise price of $0.60 per share.

On May 31, 2013, the Company converted principal amount of $225,000 and accrued interest of $4,870 into 574,675 units at $0.40 per share for total debt converted of $229,870. Each unit consisted of one share of common stock, one warrant which entitles the holder to purchase one share of common stock for a period of 2 years with an exercise price of $0.50 per share, and 1/2 warrant which entitles the holder to purchase 1/2 share of common stock for a period of 2 years with an exercise price of $0.60 per share.

NOTE 9 – OPTIONS AND WARRANTS

Stock Option Awards

Corporate Overview

Our company, The Alkaline Water Company Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on June 6, 2011 under the name “Global Lines Inc”. Our business model prior to the acquisition of Alkaline Water Corp. on May 31, 2013 was to provide chauffeuring and transportation services to residents within our local market, primarily providing transportation services such as private school student transport, sightseeing trips, and elderly transportation, and offering transportation to the airport and special event such as proms and weddings. However, as we had not successfully developed our service and had no source of revenue from our business plan, we determined to seek out a new business opportunity to increase value for our stockholders.

On February 20, 2013, The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (formerly Global Lines Inc) entered into a non-binding letter of intent with Alkaline 88, LLC (formerly Alkaline 84, LLC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alkaline Water Corp., for the acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding securities of the capital of Alkaline 88, LLC. Further to this letter of intent, on May 31, 2013, The Alkaline Water Company Inc. entered into a share exchange agreement with Alkaline Water Corp. and all of its stockholders, and as a result of the closing of this agreement on the same date, Alkaline Water Corp. became a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Alkaline Water Company Inc. Consequently, after the closing of this agreement we adopted the business of Alkaline Water Corp.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Alkaline 88, LLC.


16

Alkaline Water Corp. was incorporated in the State of Arizona on March 7, 2013, and it is the sole stockholder of Alkaline 88, LLC. Alkaline Water Corp. is the wholly-owned subsidiary of The Alkaline Water Company Inc., and Alkaline 88, LLC is Alkaline Water Corp.’s wholly-owned subsidiary.

Prior to the closing of the share exchange agreement, on May 30, 2013, our company effected a name change by merging with its wholly-owned Nevada subsidiary named “The Alkaline Water Company Inc.” with our company as the surviving corporation under the new name “The Alkaline Water Company Inc.” In addition, on May 30, 2013, our company effected a 15:1 forward stock split of our authorized and issued and outstanding common stock.

On October 7, 2013, we amended our articles of incorporation to create 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock by filing a Certificate of Amendment to Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. The preferred stock may be divided into and issued in series, with such designations, rights, qualifications, preferences, limitations and terms as fixed and determined by our board of directors. As a result, the aggregate number of shares that we have the authority to issue is 1,225,000,000, of which 1,125,000,000 shares are common stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share, and 100,000,000 shares are preferred stock, with a par value of $0.001 per share.

On October 8, 2013, we designated 20,000,000 shares of the authorized and unissued preferred stock of our company as “Series A Preferred Stock” by filing a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. The Series A Preferred Stock has 10 votes per share and is not convertible into shares of our common stock.

On November 5, 2013, we designated 1,000 shares of the authorized and unissued preferred stock of our company as “10% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock” by filing a Certificate of Designation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. The 10% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of our common stock at a price of $0.43 per share, subject to adjustment as provided for in the Certificate of Designation, and has, among other things, liquidation preferences, dividend rights, redemption rights and conversion rights.

The principal offices of our company are located at 7730 E Greenway Road, Ste. 203, Scottsdale, AZ 85260. Our telephone number is (480) 656-2423.

Principal Products

Our company offers retail consumers bottled alkaline water in three-liter and one-gallon volumes through our brand “Alkaline88”. Our product is produced through an electrolysis process that uses specialized electronic cells coated with a variety of rare earth minerals to produce our 8.8 pH drinking water without the use of any chemicals. Our product also incorporates 84 trace Himalayan salts.

The main reason consumers drink our product is for the perceived benefit that a proper pH balance helps fight disease and boosts the immune system and the perception that alkaline water helps to maintain a proper body pH and keeps cells young and hydrated.

Operations

Alkaline 88, LLC, our operating subsidiary, operates primarily as a marketing and distribution company. Alkaline 88, LLC has entered into exclusive arrangements with Water Engineering Solutions LLC, an entity that is controlled and owned by our President, Chief Executive Officer, director and majority stockholder Steven P. Nickolas and our Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and director Richard A. Wright, for the manufacture and production of our alkaline generating electrolysis system machines. Alkaline 88, LLC has entered into one-year agreement(s) with Arizona Bottled Water, LLC and White Water, LLC to act as our initial co-packers. Our branding is being coordinated through 602 Design, LLC and our component materials are readily available through multiple vendors. Our principal suppliers are Plastipack Packaging and Polyplastics Co.

Sample production and testing of our product began in late 2012. We have currently established initial contract manufacturing in Phoenix, Arizona and plan to establish other key manufacturing facilities throughout the United States to support the national distribution of our product.

Our product is currently at the introduction phase of its lifecycle. In March 2012 Alkaline 88, LLC did market research on the demand for a bulk alkaline product at the Natural Product Expo West in Anaheim, California. In January 2013, we began the formal launching of our product in Southern California and Arizona. Since then, we have begun to deliver product through approximately 600 retail outlets throughout the United States, primarily in the Southwest and Texas, through large national distributors (UNFI and KeHe). Our current stores include convenience stores, natural food products stores, large ethnic markets and national retailers. Currently, we sell all of our products to our retailers through brokers and distributors. Our larger retail clients bring the water in through their own warehouse distribution network. Our current retail clients are made up of a variety of the following; convenience stores, including 7-11’s; large national retailers, including Albertson’s, Fry’s and Smith’s, (both Kroger companies) and regional grocery chains such as Bashas’, Bristol Farms, Vallarta, Superior Foods, Brookshire’s and other companies throughout the United States.


17

In order to continue our expansion, we anticipate that we will be required, in most cases, to continue to give promotional deals throughout 2014 and in subsequent years on a quarterly basis ranging from a 5%-15% discount similar to all other beverage company promotional programs. It has been our experience that most of the retailers have requested some type of promotional introductory program which has included either a $0.25 -$0.50 per unit discount on an initial order; a buy one get one free program; or a free-fill program which includes 1-2 cases of free product per store location. Slotting has only been presented and negotiated in the larger national grocery chains and, in most cases, is offset by product sales. Our slotting fees with our current national retailers do not exceed $40,000 in the aggregate and are offset through product sales. In addition we participate in promotional activities of our distributors, these fees are not in excess of $100,000 and are offset through product sales.

Plan of Operations

In order for us to implement our business plan over the next twelve-month period, we have identified the following milestones that we expect to achieve:


18

We believe that cash flow from operations will not meet our present and near-term cash needs and thus we will require additional cash resources, including the sale of equity or debt securities, to meet our planned capital expenditures and working capital requirements for the next 12 months. We estimate that our capital needs over the next 12 months will be $2,000,000 to $5,000,000. We will require additional cash resources to achieve the milestones indicated above. If our own financial resources and future current cash-flows from operations are insufficient to satisfy our capital requirements, we may seek to sell additional equity or debt securities or obtain additional credit facilities. The sale of additional equity securities will result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness will result in increased debt service obligations and could require us to agree to operating and financial covenants that could restrict our operations or modify our plans to grow the business. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Any failure by us to raise additional funds on terms favorable to us, or at all, will limit our ability to expand our business operations and could harm our overall business prospects.

Distribution Method for Our Product

Our distribution network is a broker-distributor-retailer network, whereby brokers represent our products to distributors and retailers. Our target retail markets are: (a) chain and independent health food stores; (b) grocery stores; (c) convenience stores; (d) drug stores; and the mass retail market.

Currently our broker network consists of A&L Sales & Marketing, Savi Sales & Marketing, Co-Sales Company and Perimeter Sales & Merchandising.

National distribution is being arranged through our distributor network including, but not limited to, Santa Monica Distributing Company, Las Vegas Beer & Beverage Company, Alford Distributing, North Central Distributors, United Natural Foods (UNFI) and KeHE Distributors.

Our retail network currently consists of Albertson’s/SuperValu, Amazon.com, Bashas’, Bristol Farms, Superior Grocers, Kroger (Fry’s and Smith’s) and Vallarta Supermarkets.

Dependence on Few Customers

We have 3 major customers (consisting of UNFI, KeHe Distributors and Brookshire Grocery Company) that together account for 51% (25%, 14% and 12%, respectively) of accounts receivable at December 31, 2013, and 2 customers (consisting of Albertson and Superior Grocers) that together account for 38% (10% and 18%, respectively) of the total revenues earned for the nine month period ended December 31, 2013.

Marketing

We intend to market our product through our broker network and to avail ourselves to the promotional activities of other companies and competitors regarding the benefits of alkaline water. We anticipate that our initial marketing thrust will be to support the retailers and distribution network with point of sales displays and other marketing materials, strategically adding an extensive public relations program and other marketing as the markets dictate.

Competition

The beverage industry is extremely competitive. The principal areas of competition include pricing, packaging, development of new products and flavors, and marketing campaigns. Our product will be competing directly with a wide range of drinks produced by a relatively large number of manufacturers. Most of these brands have enjoyed broad, well-established national recognition for years, through well-funded ad and other marketing campaigns. In addition, companies manufacturing these products generally have far greater financial, marketing, and distribution resources than we have.


19

Important factors that will affect our ability to compete successfully include the continued public perception of the benefits of alkaline water, taste and flavor of our product, trade and consumer promotions, the development of new, unique and cutting edge products, attractive and unique packaging, branded product advertising, pricing, and the success of our distribution network.

We will also be competing to secure distributors who will agree to market our product over those of our competitors, provide stable and reliable distribution, and secure adequate shelf space in retail outlets. The extremely competitive pressures within the beverage categories could result in our product never even being introduced beyond what they can market locally themselves.

Our product will compete generally with all liquid refreshments, including bottled water and numerous specialty beverages, such as SoBe, Snapple, Arizona, Vitamin Water, Gatorade, and Powerade. We will compete directly with other alkaline water producers and brands focused on the emerging alkaline beverage market including Eternal, Essentia, Icelandic, Real Water, Aqua Hydrate, Mountain Valley, Qure, Penta, and Alka Power.

Products offered by our direct competitors are sold in various volumes and prices with prices ranging from approximately $1.39 for a half-liter bottle to $2.99 for a one-liter bottle, and volumes ranging from half-liter bottles to one-and-a half liter bottles. We currently offer our product in a three-liter bottle for an SRP of $3.99 and one-gallon bottle for an SRP of $4.99.

Intellectual Property

Where available, we intend to obtain trademark protection in the United States for a number of trademarks for slogans and product designs. We intend to aggressively assert our rights under trade secret, unfair competition, trademark and copyright laws to protect our intellectual property, including product design, product research and concepts and recognized trademarks. These rights are protected through the acquisition of patents and trademark registrations, the maintenance of trade secrets, the development of trade dress, and, where appropriate, litigation against those who are, in our opinion, infringing these rights.

While there can be no assurance that registered trademarks will protect our proprietary information, we intend to assert our intellectual property rights against any infringer. Although any assertion of our rights could result in a substantial cost to, and diversion of effort by, our company, management believes that the protection of our intellectual property rights will be a key component of our sales and operating strategy.

Seasonality of Business

The sales of our products are influenced to some extent by weather conditions in the markets in which we operate. Unusually cold or rainy weather during the summer months may have a temporary effect on the demand for our product and contribute to lower sales, which could have an adverse effect on our results of operations for such periods.

Research and Development Costs During the Last Two Years

Alkaline 88, LLC has worked with Water Engineering Solutions LLC, an entity that is controlled and majority-owned by Steven P. Nickolas and Richard A. Wright, on the research and development activities related to the development of our alkaline generating electrolysis system machines, a proprietary alkaline water system.

Government Regulation

The advertising, distribution, labeling, production, safety, sale, and transportation in the United States of our product will be subject to: the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; the Federal Trade Commission Act; the Lanham Act; state consumer protection laws; competition laws; federal, state and local workplace health and safety laws; various federal, state and local environmental protection laws; and various other federal, state and local statutes and regulations.

Legal requirements apply in many jurisdictions in the United States requiring that deposits or certain ecotaxes or fees be charged for the sale, marketing, and use of certain non-refillable beverage containers. The precise requirements imposed by these measures vary. Other types of statutes and regulations relating to beverage container deposits, recycling, ecotaxes and/or product stewardship also apply in various jurisdictions in the United States. We anticipate that additional, similar legal requirements may be proposed or enacted in the future at the local, state and federal levels in the United States.


20

Any third-party bottling facility that we may choose to utilize in the future and any other such operations will be subject to various environmental protection statutes and regulations, including those relating to the use of water resources and the discharge of wastewater. It will be our policy to comply with any and all such legal requirements. Compliance with these provisions has not had, and we do not expect such compliance to have, any material adverse effect on our capital expenditures, net income or competitive position.

Employees

In addition to Steven P. Nickolas, who is our President, Chief Executive Officer and Director, and Richard A. Wright, who is our Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Director, we currently employ 8 full time employees and 1 part time employee in marketing, accounting and administration. We also work with retail brokers in the United States who are paid on a contract basis. Our operations are overseen directly by management that engages our employees to carry on our business. Our management oversees all responsibilities in the areas of corporate administration, business development, and research. We intend to expand our current management to retain skilled directors, officers, and employees with experience relevant to our business focus. Our management’s relationships with manufacturers, distillers, development/research companies, bottling concerns, and certain retail customers will provide the foundation through which we expect to grow our business in the future. We believe that the skill-set of our management team will be a primary asset in the development of our brands and trademarks. We also plan to form an independent network of contract sales and regional managers, a promotional support team, and several market segment specialists who will be paid on a variable basis.

Going Concern

Our financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs and to allow us to continue as a going concern. As of December 31, 2013, we had an accumulated deficit of $(3,349,544). Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on our company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until we become profitable. If we are unable to obtain adequate capital, we could be forced to significantly curtail or cease operations.

On November 7, 2013, we sold to three institutional investors an aggregate of 500 shares of our 10% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock at a stated value of $1,000 per share and Series A, B and C common stock purchase warrants (each series being exercisable into an aggregate of 1,162,791 shares of our common stock) for gross proceeds of $500,000. In addition to the sale of these securities, we will need to raise additional funds to finance continuing operations. However, there are no assurances that we will be successful in raising additional funds. Without sufficient additional financing, it would be unlikely for us to continue as a going concern.

Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations.

    For the     Inception  
    nine     (June 19,  
    months     2012) to
    ended        
    December     December  
    31, 2013     31, 2012  
             
Net cash used in operating activities $  (1,089,912 ) $  (144,044 )
Net cash used in investing activities   (473,230 )   (66,524 )
Net cash provided by financing activities   1,522,000     210,568  
Net increase in cash and cash equivalents $  (42,142 ) $  -  

Operating activities

Net cash used in operating activities was $ 1,089,912 for the nine months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $144,044 used in operating activities from inception June 19, 2012 to December 31, 2012. The increase in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to net loss from operations and increase in accounts receivable and inventory.

Investing activities

Net cash used in investing activities was $473,230 for the nine months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $66,524 used in investing activities from inception June 19, 2012 to December 31, 2012. The increase in net cash used by investing activities was primarily from the equipment deposits to related parties.

Financing activities

Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was $1,522,000, as compared to $210,568 from inception June 19, 2012 to December 31, 2012. The increase of net cash provided by financing activities was mainly attributable to capital provided through sales of our common stock.

Cash Requirements

We believe that cash flow from operations will not meet our present and near-term cash needs and thus we will require additional cash resources, including the sale of equity or debt securities, to meet our planned capital expenditures and working capital requirements for the next 12 months. We estimate that our capital needs over the next 12 month will be $2,000,000 to $5,000,000. We will require additional cash resources to purchase equipment, increase the production of our products, implement our strategy to expand our sales and marketing initiatives and increase brand awareness. If our own financial resources and then current cash-flows from operations are insufficient to satisfy our capital requirements, we may seek to sell additional equity or debt securities or obtain additional credit facilities. The sale of additional equity securities will result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness will result in increased debt service obligations and could require us to agree to operating and financial covenants that could restrict our operations or modify our plans to grow the business. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Any failure by us to raise additional funds on terms favorable to us, or at all, will limit our ability to expand our business operations and could harm our overall business prospects.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
