Introduction
 
Majesco Entertainment Company is an innovative developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment for consumers around the world. Building on more than 25 years of operating history, Majesco develops and publishes a wide range of video games on digital networks through its Midnight City label, including Nintendo’s DS, 3DS, Wii and WiiU, Sony’s PlayStation 3 and 4, or PS3 and PS4, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One and the personal computer, or PC. Majesco is headquartered in South Plainfield, New Jersey, and its common stock is traded on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “COOL”.
  
Although, historically, we have sold packaged console software to large retail chains, specialty retail stores, video game rental outlets and distributors and through digital distribution for platforms such as Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, or PSN, and Steam, and for mobile devices and online platforms, we now operate, almost exclusively a digital software distribution and licensing business.
 
On July 31, 2015, we transferred to Zift Interactive LLC (“Zift”), a newly-formed subsidiary, certain rights under certain of our publishing licenses related to developing, publishing, and distributing video game products through retail distribution for a term of one year. We then transferred Zift to our former chief executive officer, Jesse Sutton.
 
Our titles are targeted at various demographics at a range of various price points. Due to the larger budget requirements for developing and marketing premium console titles, we have focused on publishing lower-cost games targeting casual-game consumers and independent game developer fans. In some instances, our titles are based on licenses of well-known properties and, in other cases, original properties. We enter into agreements with content providers and video game development studios for the creation of video games sold domestically and internationally.
 
On December 1, 2016, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Agreement”) with Majesco Acquisition Corp., a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, PolarityTE, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Polarity”) and Dr. Denver Lough, the owner of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Polarity (the “Seller”). The closing is subject to various closing conditions.
 
Company Background
 
Our principal executive offices are located at 4041-T Hadley Road, South Plainfield, NJ 07080 and our telephone number is (732) 225-8910. Our web site address is www.majescoentertainment.com.
 
Majesco Holdings Inc. (formerly ConnectivCorp) was incorporated in 2004 under the laws of the State of Delaware. As a result of a merger, Majesco Sales Inc. became a wholly-owned subsidiary and the sole operating business of the Company, which changed its name to Majesco Entertainment Company.

Reverse stock-split
 
On July 27, 2016, Majesco Entertainment Company (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in order to effectuate a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, par value $0.001 per share on a one (1) for six (6) basis, effective on July 29, 2016 (the “Reverse Stock Split”).
 
The Reverse Stock Split was effective with The NASDAQ Capital Market (“NASDAQ”) at the open of business on August 1, 2016. The par value and other terms of the Company’s common stock were not affected by the Reverse Stock Split. The Company’s post-Reverse Stock Split common stock has a new CUSIP number, 560690 406. The Company’s transfer agent, Equity Stock Transfer LLC, acted as exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split.
 
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every six shares of the Company’s pre-Reverse Stock Split common stock will be combined and reclassified into one share of the Company’s common stock. No fractional shares of common stock were issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split.
 
All common share and per share amounts have been restated to show the effect of the Reverse Stock Split.
  
Industry Overview
 
The video game software market is comprised of two primary sectors: (i) dedicated console software for systems such as the Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, and handheld gaming systems, such as the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS. The majority of software for these platforms has historically been purchased in packaged form through retail outlets. However, in recent years an increasing amount of software has been made available digitally through online networks such as Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade (“XBLA”), and Sony’s PlayStation Network (“PSN”); and (ii) software for multipurpose devices such as personal computers (“PCs”) and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
 
Online and mobile digital games
 
We have released numerous games for digital distribution over various third party networks for dedicated game consoles or PC, such as Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Steam. We have released titles for various mobile platforms, including Apple’s iOS and Android. We have published our own digital games and served as a distributor for other developer’s products in return for a percentage of net revenues generated by the game. Some of the games are distributed under the label “Midnight City” which we established to provide services to the indie game development community.

Retail distribution.
 
Prior to July 2015, we derived the majority of revenues from the sale of games for dedicated game consoles through retail distribution. Specifically, we have generated a substantial amount of our revenues in this channel from two “hit” franchises, Cooking Mama and Zumba Fitness. These titles are late in their life cycle, and as a result, generated significantly reduced sales than early in their life cycle. We have also released a number of other titles, primarily for the casual game consumer on the Nintendo DS, Nintendo WII and Microsoft 360 Kinect. Retail distribution no longer constitutes any focus of our business.
 
Product Development
 
We primarily use third party development studios to develop our games. However, we may employ game-production and quality-assurance personnel to manage the creation of the game and its ultimate approval by the first party hardware manufacturer. We carefully select third parties to develop video games based on their capabilities, suitability, availability and cost. We typically have broad rights to commercially utilize products created by the third party developers we work with. Development contracts are structured to provide developers with incentives to provide timely and satisfactory performance by associating payments with the achievement of substantive development milestones, and by providing for the payment of royalties to them based on sales of the developed product, only after we recoup development costs.
 
The process for producing video games also involves working with platform manufacturers from the initial game concept phase through approval of the final product. During this process, we work closely with the developers and manufacturers to ensure that the title undergoes careful quality assurance testing. Each platform manufacturer requires that the software and a prototype of each title, together with all related artwork and documentation, be submitted for its pre-publication approval. This approval is generally discretionary.
  
Intellectual Property
 
Our business is dependent upon intellectual property rights in numerous respects. We typically own the copyright to our software code and content and register copyrights and trademarks in the United States as appropriate.
 
Platform Licenses
 
Hardware platform manufacturers require that publishers obtain a license from them to publish titles for their platforms. We currently have non-exclusive licenses from Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony for each of the popular console and handheld platforms. Each license generally extends for a term of between two (2) to four (4) years and is terminable under a variety of circumstances. Each license allows us to create one or more products for the applicable system, and requires us to pay a per-unit license fee and/or royalty payment from the title produced and may include other compensation or payment terms. All of the hardware manufacturers approve each of the titles we submit for approval on a title-by-title basis, at their discretion. We are also dependent on approvals from distributors for our video game software for PCs and mobile devices.
 
Licenses from Third Parties
 
While we develop original titles, most of our titles are based on rights, licenses and properties, including copyrights and trademarks, owned by third parties. Even our original titles may require rights to properties from third parties, such as rights to music or content. License agreements with third parties generally extend for a term of between two (2) to four (4) years, are limited to specific territories or platforms and are terminable under a variety of circumstances. Several of our licenses are exclusive within particular territories or platforms. The licensors often have strict approval and quality control rights. Typically, we are obligated to make minimum guaranteed royalty payments over the term of these licenses and advance payments against these guarantees, but other compensation or payment terms, such as milestone payments, are also common. From time to time, we may also license other technologies from third party developers for use in our products, which also are subject to royalties and other types of payment.
 
Customers
 
Customers of our packaged software have historically been national and regional retailers, specialty retailers and video game rental outlets. Sony, Microsoft and Valve accounted for 47%, 37%, and 13%, respectively, of sales for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2016. For the fiscal year ended 2015, our top three accounts were Microsoft (digital), GameStop and Alliance Distributors, which accounted for approximately 13%, 10% and 10% of our revenue, respectively. In fiscal 2015, we transferred our distribution activities related to packaged software and reduced our headcount and working capital requirements dramatically in order to focus on the download business, where games are downloaded from servers maintained by game companies, such as Valve, Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.  Accordingly, currently our customers are substantially users of games on those platforms. We continue to explore new distribution channels for our games.

Competition
 
We compete with many other first and third party publishers and developers within the video game industry.
 
Seasonality
 
The interactive entertainment business is highly seasonal, with sales typically higher during the peak holiday selling season during the fourth quarter of the calendar year. Traditionally, the majority of sales of our packaged software for this key selling period ship in our fiscal fourth and first quarters, which end on October 31 and January 31, respectively. Significant working capital was required to finance the manufacturing of inventory of products that shipped during these quarters. By contrast, our digital distribution activities are less subject to seasonality and do not require significant investments in inventory or accounts receivable during the holiday seasons.
 
Employees
 
We had four full-time employees as of October 31, 2016.
 
Available Information
 
We file annual, quarterly, and current reports, as well as proxy statements and other information with the Securities and Exchange Commission, available to the public free of charge over the Internet at our website at http://www.majescoent.com In addition, may materials we file with the SEC are available on the SEC’s website as www.SEC.GOV free of charge.
  
Item 1A.  Risk Factors.
 
Our business and operations are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties as described below. However, the risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties that we are unaware of, or that we may currently deem immaterial, may become important factors that could harm our business, financial condition or results of operations. If any of the following risks actually occur, our ebusiness, financial condition or results of operations could suffer.
 
Certain Risk Factors Relating to Polarity
 
 Rapid technological change could cause Polarity’s platform, PolarityTE, to become obsolete.
 
The technologies underlying Polarity’s platform, PolarityTE, are subject to rapid and profound technological change. Competition intensifies as technical advances in each field are made and become more widely known. Polarity can give no assurance that others will not develop processes with significant advantages over the processes that Polarity offers or is seeking to develop. Any such occurrence could have a material and adverse effect on Polarity’s business, results of operations and financial condition.
 
Polarity’s revenues will depend upon adequate reimbursement from public and private insurers and health systems.
 
Polarity’s success will depend on the extent to which reimbursement for the costs of its treatments will be available from third party payers, such as public and private insurers and health systems.  Government and other third party payers attempt to contain healthcare costs by limiting both coverage and the level of reimbursement of new treatments. Therefore, significant uncertainty usually exists as to the reimbursement status of new healthcare treatments. If Polarity is not successful in obtaining adequate reimbursement for its treatment from these third party payers, the market's acceptance of Polarity’s treatment could be adversely affected.  Inadequate reimbursement levels also likely would create downward price pressure on Polarity’s treatment.  Even if Polarity does succeed in obtaining widespread reimbursement for its treatment, future changes in reimbursement policies could have a negative impact on Polarity’s business, financial condition and results of operations.
  
To be commercially successful, Polarity must convince physicians that its treatments are safe and effective alternatives to existing treatments and that Polarity’s treatments should be used.
 
Polarity believes physicians will only adopt its treatment if they determine, based on experience, clinical data and published peer reviewed journal articles, that the use of Polarity’s treatment is a favorable alternative to conventional methods, including skin grating.  Physicians may be slow to change their medical treatment practices for the following reasons, among others: 
 
 
●   Lack of evidence supporting additional patient benefits and Polarity’s treatments over conventional methods;
●   Perceived liability risks generally associated with the use of new procedures; and
●   Limited availability of reimbursement from third party payers.
 
In addition, Polarity believes that recommendations for and support of its treatments by influential physicians are essential for market acceptance and adoption.  If Polarity does not receive this support or is unable to demonstrate favorable long-term clinical data, physicians and hospitals may not use Polarity’s treatment, which would significantly reduce Polarity’s ability to achieve revenue and would prevent Polarity from sustaining profitability.
 
 
-4-
 
Polarity’s ability to protect its intellectual property and proprietary technology through patents and other means is uncertain and may be inadequate, which could have a material and adverse effect on Polarity. 
 
Polarity’s success depends significantly on its ability to protect its proprietary rights to the technologies used in it treatment and PolarityTE platform.  Polarity relies on patent protection, as well as a combination of copyright, trade secret and trademark laws and nondisclosure, confidentiality and other contractual restrictions to protect its proprietary technology.  These legal means afford only limited protection and may not adequately protect Polarity’s rights or permit Polarity to gain or keep any competitive advantage.  In addition, Polarity’s pending patent applications include claims to material aspects of Polarity’s procedures that are not currently protected by issued patents.  The patent application process can be time consuming and expensive.  Polarity cannot ensure that any of its pending patent applications will result in issued patents.  Competitors may be able to design around Polarity’s patents or develop procedures that provide outcomes that are comparable or even superior to Polarity’s. Furthermore, the laws of foreign countries may not protect Polarity’s intellectual property rights to the same extent as do the laws of the United States.
 
The failure to obtain and maintain patents and/or protect Polarity’s intellectual property rights could have a material and adverse effect on Polarity’s business, results of operations, and financial condition.  Whether a patent is valid is a complex matter of science and law, and therefore Polarity cannot be certain that, if challenged, its patents would be upheld.  If one or more of those patents are invalidated, that could reduce or eliminate any competitive advantage Polarity might otherwise have had.
 
In the event a competitor infringes upon Polarity’s pending patent or other intellectual property rights, enforcing those rights may be costly, uncertain, difficult and time consuming. Even if successful, litigation to enforce or defend Polarity’s intellectual property rights could be expensive and time consuming and could divert Polarity’s management's attention. Further, bringing litigation to enforce Polarity’s patents subjects Polarity to the potential for counterclaims. In the event that one or more of our patents are challenged, a court or the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) may invalidate the patent(s) or determine that the patent(s) is not enforceable, which could harm Polarity’s competitive position. If the USPTO ultimately cancels or narrows the claim in any of Polarity’s patents through these proceedings, it could prevent or hinder Polarity from being able to enforce them against competitors. Such adverse decisions could negatively impact Polarity’s future, expected revenue.
 
Polarity may become subject to claims of infringement of the intellectual property rights of others, which could prohibit Polarity from developing its treatment, require Polarity to obtain licenses from third parties or to develop non-infringing alternatives, and subject Polarity to substantial monetary damages.
 
Third parties could assert that Polarity’s procedures infringe their patents or other intellectual property rights.  Whether a product infringes a patent or other intellectual property involves complex legal and factual issues, the determination of which is often uncertain.  Therefore, Polarity cannot be certain that it has not infringed the intellectual property rights of others.  Because patent applications may take years to issue, there also may be applications now pending of which Polarity is unaware that may later result in issued patents that Polarity’s procedure or processes infringe.  There also may be existing patents or pending patent applications of which Polarity is unaware that its procedures or processes may inadvertently infringe.
 
Any infringement claim could cause Polarity to incur significant costs, place significant strain on Polarity’s financial resources, divert management's attention from Polarity’s business and harm Polarity’s reputation.  If the relevant patents in such claim were upheld as valid and enforceable and Polarity was found to infringe, Polarity could be prohibited from utilizing any procedure that is found to infringe unless Polarity obtains licenses to use the technology covered by the patent or other intellectual property or is able to design around the patent or other intellectual property.  Polarity may be unable to obtain such a license on terms acceptable to it, if at all, and Polarity may not be able to redesign it’s processes to avoid infringement.  A court could also order Polarity to pay compensatory damages for such infringement, plus prejudgment interest and could, in addition, treble the compensatory damages and award attorney fees. These damages could be substantial and could harm Polarity’s reputation, business, financial condition and operating results.  
 
Polarity’s business is subject to continuing regulatory compliance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) and other authorities, which is costly and Polarity’s failure to comply could result in negative effects on its business.
 
The FDA has specific regulations governing tissue-based products, or HCT/Ps. The FDA has broad post-market and regulatory and enforcement powers.  The FDA's regulation of HCT/Ps includes requirements for registration and listing of products, donor screening and testing, processing and distribution (“Current Good Tissue Practices”), labeling, record keeping and adverse-reaction reporting, and inspection and enforcement.
 
Even if pre-market clearance or approval is obtained, the approval or clearance may place substantial restrictions on the indications for which the product may be marketed or to whom it may be marketed, may require warnings to accompany the product or impose additional restrictions on the sale and/or use of the product.  In addition, regulatory approval is subject to continuing compliance with regulatory standards, including the FDA's quality system regulations.
 
 
-5-
 
If Polarity fails to comply with the FDA regulations regarding its tissue regeneration processes, the FDA could take enforcement action, including, without limitation, any of the following sanctions:
 
 Untitled letters, warning letters, fines, injunctions, and civil penalties;
 Operating restrictions, partial suspension or total shutdown of procedure;
 Refusing requests for clearance or approval of new procedures;
 Withdrawing or suspending current applications for approval or approvals already granted; and
 Criminal prosecution.
 
It is likely that the FDA's regulation of HCT/Ps will continue to evolve in the future.  Complying with any such new regulatory requirements may entail significant time delays and expense, which could have a material adverse effect on Polarity’s business.
 
Polarity faces significant uncertainty in the industry due to government healthcare reform.
 
There have been and continue to be proposals by the Federal Government, State Governments, regulators and third party payers to control healthcare costs, and generally, to reform the healthcare system in the United States.  There are many programs and requirements for which the details have not yet been fully established or the consequences are not fully understood.  These proposals may affect aspects of Polarity’s business.  Polarity also cannot predict what further reform proposals, if any, will be adopted, when they will be adopted, or what impact they may have on Polarity.
 
 Oversight in the industry might affect the manner in which Polarity may compete in the marketplace.
 
There are laws and regulations that govern the means by which companies in the healthcare industry may market their treatments to healthcare professionals and may compete by discounting the prices of their treatments, including for example, the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, the federal False Claims Act, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, state law equivalents to these federal laws that are meant to protect against fraud and abuse and analogous laws in foreign countries. Violations of these laws are punishable by criminal and civil sanctions, including, but not limited to, in some instances civil and criminal penalties, damages, fines, exclusion from participation in federal and state healthcare programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. In addition, federal and state laws are also sometimes open to interpretation, and from time to time Polarity may find itself at a competitive disadvantage if Polarity’s interpretation differs from that of our competitors.
 
Polarity may have significant liability exposure and its insurance may not cover all potential claims.
 
Polarity is exposed to liability and other claims in the event that its treatment is alleged to have caused harm. Polarity may not be able to obtain insurance for the potential liability on acceptable terms with adequate coverage or at reasonable costs. Any potential product liability claims could exceed the amount of Polarity’s insurance coverage or may be excluded from coverage under the terms of the policy. Polarity’s insurance may not be renewed at a cost and level of coverage comparable to that then in effect.
 
If the NASDAQ Stock Market determines that the Merger with Polarity and the issuance of the Merger Consideration results in a change of control of the Company, the Company may be required to submit a new application under NASDAQ’s original listing standards and if such application is not approved, the Company’s common stock may be delisted from The NASDAQ Capital Market.
 
In connection with the Merger, the Company will issue 7,050 shares of Series E Preferred Stock, which are convertible into an aggregate of 7,050,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.   NASDAQ Rule 5110(a) provides that a Company must apply for initial listing in connection with a transaction whereby a company combines with a non-NASDAQ entity, resulting in a change of control of such company and potentially allowing the non-NASDAQ entity to effectively obtain NASDAQ listing.  In determining whether a change of control has occurred, NASDAQ considers all relevant factors including, changes in management, board of directors, voting power, ownership and financial structure of the Company.  If The NASDAQ Stock Market determines that a change of control does in fact result from the consummation of the Merger and the issuance of the Merger Consideration and an original listing application has not been approved prior to the consummation of Merger, the Company will be in violation of NASDAQ Rule 5110(a) and the Company’s common stock could be delisted from The NASDAQ Capital Market.

Certain Other Risk Factors
 
Our financial resources are limited and we will need to raise additional capital in the future to continue our business.
 
We do not expect to generate the level of revenues going forward that we have achieved in prior years from our video game business. This significantly reduced revenue will impact our needs for future capital. We cannot ensure that additional funding will be available or, if it is available, that it can be obtained on terms and conditions we will deem acceptable. Any additional funding derived from the sale of equity securities is likely to result in significant dilution to our existing stockholders. These matters involve risks and uncertainties that may prevent us from raising additional capital or may cause the terms upon which we raise additional capital, if additional capital is available, to be less favorable to us than would otherwise be the case. If we reach a point where we are unable to raise needed additional funds to continue as a going concern, we will be forced to cease our business activities and dissolve the Company. In such an event, we will need to satisfy various severances, contract termination, and other dissolution-related obligations.
 
We have experienced recent net losses and we may incur future net losses, which may cause a decrease in our stock price.
 
We incurred net losses of $4.6 million in fiscal 2016 and $3.8 million in fiscal 2015. We may not be able to generate revenues sufficient to offset our costs and may sustain net losses in future periods. Any such losses may have an adverse effect on our future operating prospects, liquidity and stock price.
 
We have experienced volatility in the price of our stock and are subject to volatility in the future.
 
The price of our common stock has experienced significant volatility. The high and low bid quotations for our common stock, as reported by the NASDAQ Capital Market, ranged between a high of $14.22 and a low of $3.03 during the past 24 months. The historic market price of our common stock may be higher or lower than the price paid for our shares and may not be indicative of future market prices, depending on many factors, some of which are beyond our control. In addition, as we have significantly reduced our video game operations, and are seeking strategic alternatives, we cannot predict the performance of our stock. The price of our stock may change dramatically in response to our success or failure to consummate a strategic transaction.
  
Substantial future sales of our common stock by us or by our existing stockholders could cause our stock price to fall.
 
Additional equity financings or other share issuances by us, including shares issued in connection with strategic alliances and corporate partnering transactions, could adversely affect the market price of our common stock. Sales by existing stockholders of a large number of shares of our common stock in the public market or the perception that additional sales could occur could cause the market price of our common stock to drop.
 
We may not be able to maintain our listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market.
 
Our common stock currently trades on the NASDAQ Capital Market. This market has continued listing requirements that we must continue to maintain to avoid delisting. The standards include, among others, a minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share and any of: (i) a minimum stockholders’ equity of $2.5 million; (ii) a market value of listed securities of $35 million; or (iii) net income from continuing operations of $500,000 in the most recently completed fiscal year or in the two of the last three fiscal years. Our results of operations and our fluctuating stock price directly impact our ability to satisfy these listing standards. In the event we are unable to maintain these listing standards, we may be subject to delisting.
 
A delisting from NASDAQ would result in our common stock being eligible for quotation on the Over-The-Counter market which is generally considered to be a less efficient system than listing on markets such as NASDAQ or other national exchanges because of lower trading volumes, transaction delays and reduced security analyst and news media coverage. These factors could contribute to lower prices and larger spreads in the bid and ask prices for our common stock. Additionally, trading of our common stock on the OTCBB may make us less desirable to institutional investors and may, therefore, limit our future equity funding options and could negatively affect the liquidity of our stock.

The rights of our common stockholders are limited by and subordinate to the rights of the holders of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and Series D Convertible Preferred Stock; these rights may have a negative effect on the value of shares of our common stock.
 
The holders of our outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, Series C Preferred Stock and Series D Preferred Stock have rights and preferences generally superior to those of the holders of common stock. The existence of these superior rights and preferences may have a negative effect on the value of shares of our common stock. These rights are more fully set forth in the certificates of designations governing these instruments, and include, but are not limited to:
 
 
the right to receive a liquidation preference, prior to any distribution of our assets to the holders of our common stock; and
 
 
the right to convert into shares of our common stock at the conversion price set forth in the certificates of designations governing the respective preferred stock, which may be adjusted as set forth therein.
  
A decrease in the popularity of our licensed brands and, correspondingly, the video games we publish based on those brands could negatively impact our revenues and financial position.
 
Certain games released in 2014 and 2015 were based upon popular licensed brands. A decrease in the popularity of our licensed properties would negatively impact our ability to sell games based upon such licenses and could lead to lower net sales, profitability, and/or an impairment of our licenses, which would negatively impact our profitability.
 
A weak global economic environment could result in increased volatility in our stock price.
 
Current uncertainty in global economic conditions poses a risk to the overall economy as consumers and retailers may defer or choose not to make purchases in response to tighter credit and negative financial news, which could negatively affect demand for our products. Additionally, due to the weak economic conditions and tightened credit environment, some of our retailers and customers may not have the same purchasing power, leading to lower purchases of our games for placement into distribution channels. Reduced consumer demand for our products could materially impact our operating results.
 
Termination or modification of our agreements with platform hardware manufacturers may adversely affect our business.
 
We are required to obtain a license in order to develop and distribute software for each of the manufacturers of video game hardware. We currently have licenses from: (i) Sony to develop products for PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4; (ii) from Nintendo to develop products for the DS, DSi, 3DS, Wii and WiiU; and (iii) from Microsoft to develop products for the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. These licenses must be periodically renewed, and if they are not, or if any of our licenses are terminated or adversely modified, we may not be able to distribute any of our games on that platform or we may be required to do so on less attractive terms.
 
Our platform licensors control the fee structures for online distribution of our games on their platforms.
 
Pursuant to the terms of certain publisher license agreements, platform licensors retain sole discretion to determine the fees to be charged for both base level and premium online services available via their online platforms. Each licensor’s ability to set royalty rates makes it challenging for us to predict our costs, and increased costs may negatively impact our operating margins. As a result of such varying fee structures, we may be unable to distribute our games in a cost-effective manner through such distribution channels.
 
Intellectual property claims may increase our costs or require us to cease selling affected products, which could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.
 
Development of original content, including publication and distribution, sometimes results in claims of intellectual property infringement. Although we make efforts to ensure our products do not violate the intellectual property rights of others, it is possible that third parties may still allege infringement. These claims and any litigation resulting from these claims may result in damage awards payable by us; could prevent us from selling the affected product; or require us to redesign the affected product to avoid infringement or obtain a license for future sales of the affected product.
 
Any of the foregoing could have an adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. Any litigation resulting from these claims could require us to incur substantial costs.

A reduced workforce presents additional risk to the effectiveness of our internal controls.
 
We have significantly reduced our workforce. A smaller workforce impacts our ability to continue to undertake our historic business which could have an impact on our ability to maintain internal controls including over financial reporting, and can affect the adequacy of our controls. We cannot be certain that our internal controls over financial reporting are or will remain effective. If we cannot adequately maintain the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting, we may be subject to liability and/or sanctions or investigation by regulatory authorities, such as the SEC. Any such action could adversely affect our financial results and the market price of our common stock.
  
Our reputation with consumers is critical to our success. Negative consumer perceptions about our brands, games, services and/or business practices may damage our business and any costs incurred in addressing consumer concerns may increase our operating expenses.
 
Individual consumers form our ultimate customer base, and consumer expectations regarding the quality, performance and integrity of our products and services are high. Consumers may be critical of our brands, games, services and/or business practices for a wide variety of reasons. These negative consumer reactions may not be foreseeable or within our control to manage effectively. Actions we take to address consumer concerns may be costly and, in any case, may not be successful. In addition, negative consumer sentiment about our business practices may result in inquiries or investigations from regulatory agencies and consumer groups, as well as litigation, which, regardless of their outcome, may be damaging to our reputation. Any of these may have a negative impact on our business.
 
If our games and services do not function as consumers expect, it may have a negative impact on our business.
 
If our games and services do not function as consumers expect, whether because they fail to function as advertised or otherwise, our sales may suffer. If our games and services do not function as consumers expect, it may negatively impact our business.
 
If we are unable to sustain traditional pricing levels for our titles, our business, financial condition, results of operations, profitability, cash flows or liquidity could suffer materially.
 
If we are unable to sustain traditional pricing levels for our titles, whether due to competitive pressure, because retailers elect to price these products at a lower price or otherwise, it could have a negative impact on our business. Further, we make provisions for retail inventory price protection based upon certain assumed lowest prices and if competitive pressures force us to lower our prices below those levels, it could similarly have a negative impact on our business.
 
Our industry is subject to rapid technological change, and if we do not adapt to, and appropriately allocate our new resources among, emerging technologies and business models, our business may be negatively impacted.
 
Technology changes rapidly in the interactive entertainment industry. We must continually anticipate and adapt our products to emerging technologies, delivery platforms and business models in order to stay competitive. When we choose to incorporate a new technology into a product or to develop a product for a new platform, operating system or media format, we often are required to make a substantial investment prior to the introduction of the product. If we invest in the development of interactive entertainment products incorporating a new technology or for a new platform that does not achieve significant commercial success, our revenues from those products likely will be lower than we anticipated and may not cover our development costs. Further, our competitors may adapt to an emerging technology or business model more quickly or effectively than we do, creating products that are technologically superior to ours, more appealing to consumers, or both. If, on the other hand, we elect not to pursue the development of products incorporating a new technology or for new platforms, or otherwise elect not to pursue a new business model, that achieves significant commercial success, it may have adverse consequences. It may take significant time and resources to shift product development resources to that technology, platform or business model, as the case may be, and may be more difficult to compete against existing products incorporating that technology or for that platform or against companies using that business model. Any failure to successfully adapt to, and appropriately allocate resources among, emerging technologies could negatively impact our business.

Competition within, and to, the interactive entertainment industry is intense, and competitors may succeed in reducing our sales.
 
Within the interactive entertainment industry, we compete with other publishers of interactive entertainment software developed for use on the PC, video game consoles and handheld, mobile and tablet devices or social networking sites, both within the United States and, increasingly, in international jurisdictions. Our competitors include very large corporations with significantly greater financial, marketing and product development resources than we have. A relatively small number of titles account for a significant portion of net revenues, and an even greater portion of net profit, in the interactive entertainment industry, and the availability of significant financial resources is a major competitive factor in the production of high-quality products and in the marketing of products that are ultimately well-received. Our larger competitors may be able to leverage their greater financial, technical, personnel and other resources to finance larger budgets for development and marketing and make higher offers to licensors and developers for commercially desirable properties as well as adopt more aggressive pricing policies to develop more commercially successful products for the PC or video game platforms than we do. In addition, competitors with large product lines and popular titles typically have greater leverage with retailers, distributors and other customers, who may be willing to promote titles with less consumer appeal in return for access to those competitors' more popular titles.
 
Increased consumer acceptance and availability of interactive entertainment developed for use by consumers on handheld, mobile and tablet devices or social networking sites or other online games, consumer acceptance and availability of technology which allows users to play games on televisions without consoles, or technological advances in online game software or the Internet could result in a decline in sales of our platform-based software.
  
Additionally, we compete with other forms of entertainment and leisure activities. For example, the overall growth in the use of the Internet and online services such as social networking sites by consumers may pose a competitive threat if consumers and potential consumers spend less of their available time using interactive entertainment software and more using the Internet, including those online services. Further, it is difficult to predict and prepare for rapid changes in consumer demand that could materially alter public preferences for different forms of entertainment and leisure activities. Failure to adequately identify and adapt to the competitive pressures described herein could negatively impact our business.
 
We may be involved in legal proceedings that may result in material adverse outcomes.
 
From time to time, we may be involved in claims, suits, government investigations, audits and proceedings arising from the ordinary course of our business, including actions with respect to intellectual property, competition and antitrust matters, privacy matters, tax matters, labor and employment matters, unclaimed property matters, compliance and commercial claims. Such claims, suits, government investigations, audits and proceedings are inherently uncertain and their results cannot be predicted with certainty. Regardless of the outcome, such legal proceedings can have an adverse impact on us because of legal costs, diversion of management resources and other factors. In addition, it is possible that a resolution of one or more such proceedings could result in substantial fines and penalties, criminal sanctions, consent decrees or orders preventing us from offering certain features, functionalities, products or services, requiring us to change our development process or other business practices.
 
Our products are subject to ratings by the Entertainment Software Rating Board in the U.S. and similar agencies in international jurisdictions. Our failure to obtain our target ratings for our products could negatively impact our business.
      
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (the "ESRB") is a self-regulatory body based in the United States that provides consumers of interactive entertainment software with ratings information, including information on the content in such software, such as violence, nudity or sexual content contained in software titles. The ESRB rating categories are "Early Childhood" (i.e., content is intended for young children), "Everyone" (i.e., content is generally suitable for all ages), "Everyone 10+" (i.e., content is generally suitable for ages 10 and up), "Teen" (i.e., content is generally suitable for ages 13 and up), "Mature" (i.e., content is generally suitable for ages 17 and up) and "Adults Only" (i.e., content is suitable for adults ages 18 and up). Certain countries other than the United States have also established content rating systems as prerequisites for product sales in those countries. In some countries, a company may be required to modify its products to comply with the requirements of the rating systems, which could delay or disrupt the release of any given product, or may prevent its sale altogether in certain territories. Further, if an agency re-rates one of our games for any reason, retailers could refuse to sell it and demand that we accept the return of any unsold or returned copies or consumers could demand a refund for copies purchased. If we are unable to obtain the ratings we have targeted for our products as a result of changes in a content rating organization's ratings standards or for other reasons, it could have a negative impact on our business.

Our business, products, and distribution are subject to increasing regulation of content in key territories. If we do not successfully respond to these regulations, our business, financial condition, results of operations, profitability, cash flows or liquidity could be materially adversely affected.
 
Legislation is continually being introduced, and litigation and regulatory enforcement actions are taking place, that may affect the way in which we, and other industry participants, may offer content and features, and distribute and advertise our products. For example, privacy laws and regulatory guidance in many countries impose various restrictions on online and mobile advertising, as well as the collection, storage and use of personally identifiable information. We may be required to modify certain of our product development processes or alter our marketing strategies to comply with such regulations, which could be costly or delay the release of our products. In addition, many foreign countries, such as China and Germany, have laws that permit governmental entities to restrict the content and/or advertising of interactive entertainment software or prohibit certain types of content. Further, legislation which attempts to restrict marketing or distribution of such products because of the content therein has been introduced at one time or another at the federal and state levels in the United States. There is on-going risk of enhanced regulation of interactive entertainment marketing, content or sales. These laws and regulations vary by territory and may be inconsistent with one another, imposing conflicting or uncertain restrictions. The adoption and enforcement of legislation which restricts the marketing, content or sales of our products in countries in which we do business may harm the sales of our products, as the products we are able to offer to our customers and the size of the potential market for our products may be limited. Failure to comply with any applicable legislation may also result in government-imposed fines or other penalties. Moreover, the increased public dialogue concerning interactive entertainment may have an adverse impact on our reputation and consumers' willingness to purchase our products.
  
Item 1B.  Unresolved Staff Comments.
 
None.
 
Item 2.  Properties.
 
We lease office space at 4041 T Hadley Road, South Plainfield, New Jersey at a cost of approximately $1,613 per month under a lease agreement that expires in March 2017.
 
Item 3.  Legal Proceedings.
 
On February 26, 2015, a complaint for patent infringement was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas by Richard Baker, an individual residing in Australia, against Microsoft, Nintendo, the Company and a number of other game publisher defendants. The complaint alleges that the Company’s Zumba Fitness Kinect game infringed plaintiff’s patents in motion tracking technology. The plaintiff is representing himself pro se in the litigation and is seeking monetary damages in the amount of $1.3 million. The Company, in conjunction with Microsoft, is defending itself against the claim and has certain third party indemnity rights from developers for costs incurred in the litigation. In August 2015, the defendants jointly moved to transfer the case to the Western District of Washington. On May 17, 2016, the Washington Court issued a scheduling order that provides that defendants leave to jointly file an early motion for summary judgement in June 2016.  On June 17, 2016, the defendants jointly filed a motion for summary judgment that stated that none of the defendants, including the Company, infringed upon the asserted patent.  On July 9, 2016, Mr. Baker opposed the motion. On July 15, 2016, the defendants jointly filed a reply.  The briefing on the motion is now closed.  The Court has not yet issued a decision or indicated if or when there will be oral argument on the motion.
 
In addition to the item above, the Company at times may be a party to claims and suits in the ordinary course of business. We record a liability when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss or range of loss can be reasonably estimated. The Company has not recorded a liability with respect to the matter above. While the Company believes that it has valid defenses with respect to the legal matter pending and intends to vigorously defend the matter above, given the uncertainty surrounding litigation and our inability to assess the likelihood of a favorable or unfavorable outcome, it is possible that the resolution of the matter could have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

Overview
 
Majesco Entertainment Company is an innovative developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment for consumers around the world. Building on more than 25 years of operating history, Majesco develops and publishes a wide range of video games on digital networks through its Midnight City label, including Nintendo’s DS, 3DS, Wii and WiiU, Sony’s PlayStation 3 and 4, or PS3 and PS4, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One and the personal computer, or PC. Although, historically, we have sold packaged software to large retail chains, specialty retail stores, video game rental outlets and distributors and through digital distribution for platforms such as Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, or PSN, and Steam, and for mobile devices and online platforms, we are now purposed to operate, almost exclusively, in our digital software business unit.
 
On December 1, 2016, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Agreement”) with Majesco Acquisition Corp., a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, PolarityTE, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Polarity”) and Dr. Denver Lough, the owner of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Polarity (the “Seller”). The closing is subject to various closing conditions.
 
Video Game Products
 
Net Revenues.  Our revenues are principally derived from sales of our video games.
 
Cost of Sales.  Cost of sales includes amortization and impairment of capitalized software development costs and license fees. Commencing upon the related product’s release, capitalized software development and intellectual property license costs are amortized to cost of sales.
 
Gross Profit.  Gross profit is the excess of net revenues over product costs and amortization and impairment of software development and license fees. Development and license fees incurred to produce video games are generally incurred up front and amortized to cost of sales. The recovery of these costs and total gross profit is dependent upon achieving a certain sales volume, which varies by title.
 
Product Research and Development Expenses.  Ongoing research and development activities have been substantially reduced since fiscal 2014.
 
Selling and Marketing Expenses.  Since July 2015, these activities are now limited to online and in social media.
 
General and Administrative Expenses.  General and administrative expenses primarily represent employee related costs, including stock compensation, for corporate executive and support staff, general office expenses, professional fees and various other overhead charges. Professional fees, including legal and accounting expenses, typically represent one of the largest components of our general and administrative expenses. These fees are partially attributable to our required activities as a publicly traded company, such as SEC filings, and corporate- and business-development initiatives.
 
Interest and Financing Costs.  Interest and financing costs were directly attributable to our factoring and our purchase-order financing arrangements. Such costs included commitment fees and fees based upon the value of customer invoices factored.
 
Income Taxes.  Income taxes consist of our provisions for income taxes, as affected by our net operating loss carryforwards. Future utilization of our net operating loss, or NOL, carryforwards may be subject to a substantial annual limitation due to the “change in ownership” provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. The annual limitation may result in the expiration of NOL carryforwards before utilization. Due to our history of losses, a valuation allowance sufficient to fully offset our NOL and other deferred tax assets has been established under current accounting pronouncements, and this valuation allowance will be maintained unless sufficient positive evidence develops to support its reversal.
 
Critical Accounting Estimates
 
Our discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP.
 
The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
 
We have identified the policies below as critical to our business operations and to the understanding of our financial results. The impact and any associated risks related to these policies on our business operations is discussed throughout management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations when such policies affect our reported and expected financial results.
 
 
-13-
 
Revenue Recognition. Our software products are sold exclusively as downloads of digital content for which the consumer takes possession of the digital content for a fee. Revenue from product downloads is generally recognized when the download is made available (assuming all other recognition criteria are met).
 
When we enter into license or distribution agreements that provide for multiple copies of games in exchange for guaranteed amounts, revenue is recognized in accordance with the terms of the agreements, generally upon delivery of a master copy, assuming our performance obligations are complete and all other recognition criteria are met, or as per-copy royalties are earned on sales of games.
  
Capitalized Software Development Costs and License Fees.  Software development costs include development fees, primarily in the form of milestone payments made to independent software developers. Software development costs are capitalized once technological feasibility of a product is established and management expects such costs to be recoverable against future revenues. For products where proven game engine technology exists, this may occur early in the development cycle. Technological feasibility is evaluated on a product-by-product basis. Amounts related to software development that are not capitalized are charged immediately to product research and development costs. Commencing upon a related product’s release, capitalized software development costs are amortized to cost of sales based upon the higher of (i) the ratio of current revenue to total projected revenue or (ii) straight-line charges over the expected marketable life of the product.
 
Prepaid license fees represent license fees to holders for the use of their intellectual property rights in the development of our products. Minimum guaranteed royalty payments for intellectual property licenses are initially recorded as an asset (capitalized license fees) and a current liability (accrued royalties payable) at the contractual amount upon execution of the contract or when specified milestones or events occur and when no significant performance commitment remains with the licensor. Licenses are expensed to cost of sales at the higher of (i) the contractual royalty rate based on actual sales or (ii) an effective rate based upon total projected revenue related to such license. Capitalized software development costs are classified as non-current if they relate to titles for which we estimate the release date to be more than one year from the balance sheet date.
 
The amortization period for capitalized software development costs and license fees is usually no longer than one year from the initial release of the product. If actual revenues or revised forecasted revenues fall below the initial forecasted revenue for a particular license, the charge to cost of sales may be larger than anticipated in any given quarter. The recoverability of capitalized software development costs and license fees is evaluated quarterly based on the expected performance of the specific products to which the costs relate.
 
When, in management’s estimate, future cash flows will not be sufficient to recover previously capitalized costs, we expense these capitalized costs to cost of sales - loss on impairment of capitalized software development costs and license fees - future releases, in the period such a determination is made. These expenses may be incurred prior to a game’s release. If a game is cancelled and never released to market, the amount is expensed to operating costs and expenses - loss on impairment of capitalized software development costs and license fees - cancelled games. If we were required to write off licenses or capitalized software development costs, due to changes in market conditions or product acceptance, our results of operations could be materially adversely affected.
 
License fees and milestone payments made to our third party developers are typically considered non-refundable advances against the total compensation they can earn based upon the sales performance of the products. Any additional royalty or other compensation earned beyond the milestone payments is expensed to cost of sales as incurred.
 
We expense as research and development costs associated with the development of mobile and social games when we cannot reliably project that future net cash flows from developed games will exceed related development costs. These games have not earned significant revenues to date and we are continuing to evaluate alternatives for future development and monetization.
 
Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation.  Stock-based compensation expense is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the vesting period. Determining the fair value of stock-based awards at the grant date requires judgment, including, in the case of stock option awards, estimating expected stock volatility. In addition, judgment is also required in estimating the amount of stock-based awards that are expected to be forfeited. If actual results differ significantly from these estimates, stock-based compensation expense and our results of operations could be materially impacted.
 
Accounting for Preferred Stock and Warrant transactions.  We issued units consisting of preferred shares and warrants and common stock and warrants and subsequently remeasured certain of those warrants. Determining the fair value of the securities in these transactions requires significant judgment, including adjustments to quoted share prices and expected stock volatility. Such estimates may significantly impact our results of operations and losses applicable to common stockholders.
 
Commitments and Contingencies. We record a liability for commitments and contingencies when the amount is both probable and reasonably estimable. We record associated legal fees as incurred. We accrued contingent liabilities for certain potential licensor and customer liabilities and claims that were transferred to Zift but may not be extinguished by such transaction.

Results of Operations
 
Year ended October 31, 2016 versus the year ended October 31, 2015
 
Net Revenues. Net revenues for the year ended October 31, 2016 decreased 77% to approximately $1.5 million from $6.7 million for the year ended October 31, 2015. The decrease was due to lower sales of Zumba titles. Additionally, there were no retail sales due to the transfer of the retail distribution channel to Zift in July 2015.
 
Gross Profit. Gross profit for the year ended October 30, 2016 decreased 62% to approximately $1.3 million compared to a gross profit of approximately $3.3 million for the year ended October 31, 2015. The decrease in gross profit reflects lower Zumba and other sales as discussed above, as well as the Company’s withdrawal from the packaged software business. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was 81% for the year ended October 31, 2016, compared to 49% for the year ended October 31, 2015. The increase in gross profit is due to the dramatically lower cost of sales associated with a digitally sold product.
 
Product Research and Development Expenses. Product research and development expenses for the year ended October 31, 2016 was approximately $90,000 compared to $174,000 for the year ended October 31, 2015. The decrease reflects the general reduction in this activity.
 
Selling and Marketing Expenses. Total selling and marketing expenses for the year ended October 31, 2016 decreased 98% to approximately $14,000 compared to approximately $771,000 for the year ended October 31, 2015. The decrease is primarily due to lower personnel costs and other marketing and distribution activities related to our switch to digital.
 
General and Administrative Expenses. For the year ended October 31, 2016, general and administrative expenses increased 13% to approximately $6.0 million compared to $5.4 million for the year ended October 31, 2015. The increase reflects a $1.7 million increase in stock based compensation partially offset by lower non-stock based compensation costs, consulting and professional fees and related support expenses. Stock based compensation increased, because during the third quarter of fiscal 2016, a total of 356,666 restricted shares and 347,010 stock options were granted, of which 177,084 restricted stock shares were granted with immediate vesting.
 
 Workforce Reduction. For the year ended October 31, 2015, we incurred workforce reduction costs of $0.8 million pertaining to severance costs, including primarily severance costs for finance and legal executives and other personnel.
 
Operating loss. Operating loss for the year ended October 31, 2016 increased 26% to approximately $4.9 million, compared to an operating loss of approximately $3.9 million for the year ended October 31, 2015, primarily reflecting a greater decrease in net revenues and gross profit than the expense reductions in development and marketing activities plus an increase in stock based compensation.
 
Extinguishment of liabilities. During the year ended October 31, 2015, we recognized a gain on extinguishment of liabilities of approximately $1.5 million. We determined that certain accounts payable balances and claims for license fees and services would never be paid because they were no longer being pursued for payment and had passed the statute of limitations.
 
Net gains on asset sales and other nonoperating gains. During the year ended October 31, 2015, we recognized approximately $198,000 in net gain from the sale of certain game rights and from the sale of office furniture and equipment upon the move to a smaller office. Additionally, we recognized $50,000 from the transfer of retail distribution activities to Zift, a company owned by our former chief executive officer.
 
Change in fair value of warrant liability. In our December 2014 private placement of units consisting of preferred stock and warrants, we issued warrants containing certain contingent settlement terms not indexed to our own stock. We accounted for the warrants as derivative liabilities and measured their fair value on a quarterly basis and recognized on a current basis any gains or losses. In the year ended October 31, 2015, we recognized a loss of approximately $1.5 million reflecting an increase in our stock price from the previous measurement date. In our April 19, 2016, equity offering, we issued warrants. We accounted for the warrants as derivative liabilities and measure their fair value on a quarterly basis and recognize on a current basis any gains or losses. In the year ended October 31, 2016, we recognized a gain of approximately $248,000 reflecting a decrease in our stock price from the previous measurement date.
 
Income Taxes. In the year ended October 31, 2016, our income tax expense was not significant, representing primarily minimum state income taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of October 31, 2016, our cash and cash equivalents balance was $6.5 million and our working capital was approximately $5.4 million, compared to cash and equivalents of $17.1 million and working capital of $15.6 million at October 31, 2015.
 
From fiscal 2013 through the present, we have experienced net cash outflows from operations, generally to fund operating losses due to declining revenues which we attribute to three factors: 1) the introduction of competing “freemium” games on competing handheld devices such as the Apple iPhone or iTouch, and Android powered devices; 2) a shift in game distribution from retail to digital downloads; and 3) a decline in the popularity of motion based fitness games including games we publish under the Zumba fitness brand. As a result of these factors we have reduced our operating expenses, including the reduction of game production and marketing personnel, and have eliminated substantially all of our new game development activities. In 2015, we transferred our retail distribution activities to Zift and transferred related assets and liabilities, including accounts receivable, inventory, customer credits and certain other liabilities.
 
On December 1, 2016, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Agreement”) with Majesco Acquisition Corp., a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, PolarityTE, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Polarity”) and Dr. Denver Lough, the owner of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Polarity (the “Seller”). The closing is subject to various closing conditions. We believe we have sufficient cash on hand to fund operations though the next year.
 
Private Placements
 
The private placements described below were completed in December 2014 and May 2015. A substantial portion of the proceeds of these offerings remained subject to escrow agreements until September 2015, pending the satisfaction of release conditions.
 
December 2014
 
On December 17, 2014, pursuant to subscription agreements (the “December Subscription Agreements”) entered into with certain accredited investors (the “December Investors”) the Company completed a private placement of $6.0 million of units (the “December Units”) at a purchase price of $0.68 per Unit, with each December Unit consisting of one share of the Company’s 0% Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (each a “Series A Preferred Share”) and a five-year warrant (each a “December Warrant”) to purchase one sixth of a share of the Company’s common stock at an initial exercise price of $4.08 per share (such issuance and sale, the “December Private Placement”). The December Warrants were subsequently exchanged for shares of the Company’s 0% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Shares”) and shares of the Company’s common stock (see below). The offering was made in reliance upon an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
 
The Series A Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Series A Preferred Share, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, on such Series A Preferred Share, as of such date of determination, divided by the conversion price. The stated value of each Preferred Share is $0.68 and the initial conversion price is $4.08 per share, each subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, combinations, subdivisions or other similar events. In addition, in the event the Company issues or sells, or is deemed to issue or sell, shares of its common stock at a per share price that is less than the conversion price then in effect, the conversion price shall be reduced to such lower price, subject to certain exceptions. Pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the 0% Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of Majesco Entertainment Company, the Company is prohibited from incurring debt or liens, or entering into new financing transactions without the consent of the lead investor (as defined in the December Subscription Agreements) as long as any of the Series A Preferred Shares are outstanding. The Series A Preferred Shares bear no dividends.
 
The holders of Series A Preferred Shares shall vote together with the holders of common stock on all matters on an as if converted basis, subject to certain conversion and ownership limitations, and shall not vote as a separate class. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the conversion price for purposes of calculating voting power shall in no event be lower than $3.54 per share. At no time may all or a portion of the Series A Preferred Shares be converted if the number of shares of common stock to be issued pursuant to such conversion would exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of common stock owned by the holder at such time, the number of shares of common stock which would result in such Holder beneficially owning (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act and the rules thereunder) more than 4.99% of all of the common stock outstanding at such time; provided, however, that the holder may waive the 4.99% limitation at which time he may not own beneficially own more than 9.99% of all the common stock outstanding at such time.

The proceeds of the offering and certificates representing the Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants were deposited into escrow accounts. Upon the closing of the December Private Placement, $1.0 million of the proceeds was released to us and $1.0 million of Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants, on a pro rata basis, was released to the investors. The remaining $5.0 million was released by the escrow agent to us and the corresponding $5.0 million of Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants were released to the investors in September 2015, in connection with amendments to the December Subscription Agreements.
 
On April 30, 2015, pursuant to warrant exchange agreements, the holders exchanged for cancellation 1,470,590 December Warrants, including those then held in escrow, for shares of common stock or Series B Preferred Shares. An aggregate of 1,050,421 shares of common stock, which amount includes the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, were issued or issuable in connection with the exchange agreements.
 
The Series B Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value ($140.00 per share) of the Series B Preferred Shares, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, divided by the conversion price (initially $8.40 per share, subject to adjustment). We are prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding, subject to increase, up to 9.99%.  Each holder is entitled to vote on all matters submitted to our stockholders on an “as converted basis”, subject to beneficial ownership limitations, based on a conversion price of $8.40 per share.  
 
May 2015
 
On May 15, 2015 (the “May Closing Date”), we closed the sale of $5.05 million of units (the “May Units”), pursuant to separate subscription agreements (the “May Subscription Agreements”) with accredited investors entered into on April 29, 2015, at a purchase price of $7.20 per May Unit.  Each May Unit consists of one share of the our common stock, provided that, if the issuance of any such shares would have resulted in the investor owning in excess of 4.99% of our issued and outstanding common stock, then such investor could elect to receive shares of our 0% Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Shares”), and a three-year warrant (the “May Warrants”) to purchase one share of the our common stock at an exercise price of $8.40 per share (such sale and issuance, the “May Private Placement”).  
 
The Series C Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Series C Preferred Shares ($120.00 per share), plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, divided by the conversion price ($7.20 per share, subject to adjustment).   In addition, in the event the we issue or sell, or are deemed to issue or sell, shares of our common stock at a per share price that is less than the conversion price then in effect, the conversion price shall be reduced to such lower price, subject to certain exceptions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, until such time as we obtain the required shareholder approval pursuant to the rules of The NASDAQ Stock Market, LLC, the conversion price of the Series C Preferred Shares shall not be adjusted to a per share price below $5.16.  We are prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Series C Preferred Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock subject to increase, up to 9.99%.  Each holder is entitled to vote on all matters submitted to our stockholders on an “as converted basis”, subject to the beneficial ownership limitation, based on a conversion price of $7.20 per share. The Series C Preferred Shares bear no interest and shall rank junior to our Series A Preferred Shares but senior to the Company’s Series B Preferred Shares.
 
The May Warrants are exercisable, at any time, following the date the May Warrants are issued, at a price of $8.40 per share, subject to adjustment, and expire three years from the date of issuance. The holders may, subject to certain limitations, exercise the May Warrants on a cashless basis. The Company is prohibited from effecting an exercise of any May Warrant to the extent that, as a result of any such exercise, the holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon exercise of such May Warrant, which beneficial ownership limitation may be increased by the holder up to, but not exceeding, 9.99%. 
 
The proceeds of the May Private Placement along with certificates evidencing the Series C Preferred Shares and Series C Warrants were deposited into an escrow accounts. On the May Closing Date, twenty percent (20%) of the proceeds of the May Private Placement ($1.01 million) and a corresponding number of Series C Preferred Shares and Series C Warrants were released to us and the investors, respectively.  The remaining eighty percent (80%) of the proceeds from the May Private Placement ($4.04 million) and the corresponding percentage of Series C Preferred Shares and Series C Warrants were released to us and the investors, respectively, in September 2015 in connection with amendments to the May Subscription Agreements.

September 2015
 
On September 25, 2015, we entered into amendment agreements to amend the terms of our subscription agreements for the private offerings closed December 17, 2014 and May 15, 2015 to provide for the consent of the lead investor in such offerings to release of all remaining escrowed funds to us ($5.0 million under the December Private Placement and $4.04 under the May Private Placement) upon the satisfaction of certain obligations, which we satisfied. Pursuant to the amendment agreements, we were, among other things, required to increase the size of its Board of Directors and appoint thereto, individuals deemed acceptable to the lead investor and approved by The NASDAQ Stock Market, LLC; appoint a new Chief Executive Officer and a new Chief Financial Officer and exchange the Series C Warrants, as described further below.  On September 30, 2015 we received $9.04 million in proceeds from the foregoing release of escrowed funds and the corresponding securities were released to the investors.
 
In accordance with the aforementioned escrow release conditions, we entered into exchange agreements with holders of our outstanding Series C Warrants pursuant to which each holder received .4 shares of our common stock for each 1 warrant share exchanged for cancellation.  At the election of any holder who would, as a result of receipt of the common stock hold in excess of certain beneficial ownership thresholds of our issued and outstanding common stock, such holder could receive shares of our newly designated 0% Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series D Preferred Shares”).  Pursuant to the foregoing exchanges, on September 25, 2015, we issued 0 shares of common stock and 168,333 Series D Preferred Shares convertible into 280,555 shares of common stock in exchange for the cancellation of Series C Warrants to purchase 701,390 shares of common stock. Certain of our officers and directors who held Series C Warrants participated in the exchange.
 
The Series D Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion ratio equal to the stated value ($1,000.00 per share) of such Series D Preferred Shares to be converted, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, divided by the conversion price ($600.00 per share, subject to adjustment). We are prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Series D Preferred Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding, subject to increase, up to, 9.99%. The Series D Preferred Shares bear no interest and rank senior to our common stock but junior to Series A Preferred Shares, Series B Preferred Shares and Series C Preferred Shares.
 
On October 15, 2015, our Board of Directors approved a revised version of the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of our 0% Series D Convertible Preferred Stock in order to remove any voting rights of the Series D Preferred Shares, except as otherwise required by law.
 
Dividends
 
On January 4, 2016, we declared a special cash dividend of an aggregate of $10.0 million to holders of record on January 14, 2016 of its outstanding shares of: (i) common stock (ii) Series A Preferred Shares; (iii) Series B Preferred Shares; (iv) Series C Preferred Shares and (v) Series D Preferred Shares.  The holders of record of the Company’s outstanding preferred stock participated in the dividend on an “as converted” basis.
 
April 2016 Registered Common Stock and Warrant Offering
 
On April 13, 2016, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain institutional investors providing for the issuance and sale by the Company of 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share at an offering price of $6.00 per share, for net proceeds of $1.4 million after deducting placement agent fees and expenses. In addition, the Company sold to purchasers of common stock in this offering, warrants to purchase 187,500 shares of its common stock. The common shares and the Warrant Shares were offered by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 22, 2015 and declared effective on December 7, 2015. The closing of the offering occurred on April 19, 2016.
 
Each Warrant is immediately exercisable for two years, but not thereafter, at an exercise price of $6.90 per share. Subject to limited exceptions, a holder of warrants will not have the right to exercise any portion of its warrants if the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of our common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such exercise.  The exercise price and number of warrants are subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
As of October 31, 2016, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Inflation
 
Our management currently believes that inflation has not had, and does not currently have, a material impact on continuing operations.
 
Cash Flows
 
Cash and cash equivalents were $6.5 million as of October 31, 2016 compared to $17.1 million at October 31, 2015 and working capital as of October 31, 2016 was $5.4 million compared to $15.6 million at October 31, 2015.
 
Operating Cash Flows. Our principal operating source of cash is revenue from distribution of our interactive entertainment products, net of royalty and revenue-share payments to licensors, developers and publishers. During fiscal 2015, we reduced our development and marketing activities and distributed a greater number of games published by others, compared to prior years. Accordingly, the portion of operating cash flows used for associated working capital requirements, including pre-release development and costs incurred to manufacture, sell and market our games has generally been reduced. We incurred $1.6 million of cash outflows from operations during the year ended October 31, 2015, primarily reflecting operating losses and the settlement in cash of certain outstanding royalty and customer-credit liabilities, partially offset by the liquidation of prior inventory balances and collection of accounts receivable. We incurred $1.8 million of cash outflows from operations during the year ended October 31, 2016, primarily reflecting current operating losses, partially offset by non-cash compensation expense.
  
Investing Cash Flows. Cash provided by investing activities in the year ended October 31, 2015 amounted to approximately $540,000, primarily reflecting proceeds from the sale of certain game rights and the collection of certain outstanding advances to GMS.
 
Financing Cash Flows. Net cash used in financing activities for the year ended October 31, 2016 amounted to approximately $8.8 million, mainly related to a payment of a $10.0 million special cash dividend, partially offset by an equity capital raise of approximately $1.4 million. Net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended October 31, 2015 reflects $10.9 million of net proceeds from private placements.
  
Item 7A.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
 As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information under this item, pursuant to Regulation S-K Item 305(e).
 
Item 8.  Financial Statements and Supplementary Data.
 
The financial statements required by Item 8 are submitted in a separate section of this report, beginning on Page F-1, are incorporated herein and made a part hereof.
 
Item 9.  Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure.
 
None.
 
Item 9A.  Controls and Procedures.
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.  Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e), as of the end of the period covered by this report.
 
In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.
 
No system of controls can prevent errors and fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. 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. Because of 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, within our Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur. Controls can also be circumvented by individual acts of some people, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with its policies or procedures. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Subject to the limitations above, management believes that the consolidated financial statements and other financial information contained in this report, fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented.
 
Based on the evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) were effective at a reasonable assurance level.
  
During the current period, we enhanced our internal control over financial reporting by employing an external firm on a contract services basis.  This firm specializes in providing finance and accounting functions for small companies, and the founders and senior managers are highly experienced former employees of national accounting firms.
 
Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.  Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP. Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:
 
 
pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect transactions involving our assets;
 
 
provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with the authorization of our management; and
 
provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, 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.
  
Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of October 31, 2016. In making this assessment, management used the framework set forth in the report entitled Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in 2013, or COSO. The COSO framework summarizes each of the components of a company’s internal control system, including (i) the control environment, (ii) risk assessment, (iii) control activities, (iv) information and communication, and (v) monitoring. Based on this evaluation, management determined that our system of internal control over financial reporting was effective as of October 31, 2016.
 
There were no changes to internal controls over financial reporting during the most recent quarter.
 
This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered independent public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered independent public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in the Annual Report on Form 10-K.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
The Board of Directors and Stockholders
Majesco Entertainment Company
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Majesco Entertainment Company and Subsidiary (the "Company") as of October 31, 2016 and 2015, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the years then ended. The financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Majesco Entertainment Company and Subsidiary as of October 31, 2016 and 2015, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARY
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
1.  PRINCIPAL BUSINESS ACTIVITY AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
The accompanying financial statements present the financial results of Majesco Entertainment Company and Majesco Europe Limited, its wholly-owned subsidiary, (together, “Majesco” or the “Company”) on a consolidated basis. Prior to the November 2014 sale of its equity investment, the Company had 50% of the voting control of GMS Entertainment Limited (“GMS”) and the right to appoint one-half of the directors of GMS. Accordingly, the Company accounted for GMS on the equity method as a corporate joint venture.
 
The Company is a provider of video game products primarily for the casual-game consumer and has published video games for interactive entertainment hardware platforms, including Nintendo’s DS, 3DS, Wii and WiiU, Sony’s PlayStation 3 and 4, or PS3 and PS4, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One and the personal computer, or PC. It has historically sold its products through two sales channels, retail and digital. It has sold packaged software to large retail chains, specialty retail stores, video game rental outlets and distributors and through digital distribution for platforms such as Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, or PSN, and Steam, and for mobile devices and online platforms. In July 2015, the Company transferred retail distribution activities, assets and obligations to a company owned by its former chief executive officer (see Note 15).
 
The Company’s video game titles are targeted at various demographics at a range of price points. Due to the larger budget requirements for developing and marketing premium console titles for core gamers, the Company has focused on publishing more lower-cost games targeting casual-game consumers and independent game developer fans. In some instances, the Company’s titles are based on licenses of well-known properties and, in other cases, original properties. The Company enters into agreements with content providers and video game development studios for the creation of our video games.
 
The Company’s operations involve similar products and customers worldwide. These products are developed and sold domestically and internationally. The Company is centrally managed and our chief operating decision makers, the chief executive and other officers, use consolidated and other financial information supplemented by sales information by product category, major product title and platform for making operational decisions and assessing financial performance. Accordingly, it operates in a single segment.
 
Reverse stock-split. On July 27, 2016, Majesco Entertainment Company (the “Company”) filed a certificate of amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Restated Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in order to effectuate a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, par value $0.001 per share on a one (1) for six (6) basis, effective on July 29, 2016 (the “Reverse Stock Split”).
 
The Reverse Stock Split was effective with The NASDAQ Capital Market (“NASDAQ”) at the open of business on August 1, 2016. The par value and other terms of Company’s common stock were not affected by the Reverse Stock Split. The Company’s post-Reverse Stock Split common stock has a new CUSIP number, 560690 406. The Company’s transfer agent, Equity Stock Transfer LLC, is acting as exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split.
 
As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every six shares of the Company’s pre-Reverse Stock Split common stock was combined and reclassified into one share of the Company’s common stock. No fractional shares of common stock were issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to a fractional share shall receive a cash payment in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the closing sale price of our common stock on the business day immediately preceding the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split as reported on NASDAQ by (ii) the number of shares of our common stock held by the stockholder that would otherwise have been exchanged for the fractional share interest.
 
All common share and per share amounts have been restated to show the effect of the Reverse Stock Split.
 
NASDAQ listing. On March 3, 2016, the Company was notified by The NASDAQ Stock Market, LLC (“Nasdaq”) that it was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Rule”) because the Company’s common stock failed to maintain a minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for the prior 30 consecutive business days. The notice had no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market.
 
The Company had a period of 180 calendar days, or until August 30, 2016, to achieve compliance with the Rule. The Company regained compliance with the Rule in August 2016 by effecting the Reverse Stock Split.
 
Major customers. Sony, Microsoft and Valve accounted for 47%, 37%, and 13%, respectively, of sales for the year ended October 31, 2016. Sony, Sidekick and Microsoft accounted for 41%, 25% and 20%, respectively, of accounts receivable as of October 31, 2016. Sales to GameStop represented approximately 10% of net revenues in 2015. In 2015, Alliance Distributors and Microsoft Corporation represented approximately 10% and 13% of total revenue, respectively. Sony, Microsoft, Valve and Nintendo accounted for 37%, 20%, 18% and 13% of total accounts receivable as of October 31, 2015, respectively.
 
Concentrations.  The Company develops and distributes video game software for proprietary platforms under licenses from Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft, which must be periodically renewed. The Company’s agreements with these manufacturers also grant them certain control over the Company’s products. In addition, for the years ended October 31, 2016 and 2015 sales of the Company’s Zumba Fitness games accounted for approximately 9% and 28% of net revenues, respectively.

2.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Principles of Consolidation.  The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary located in the United Kingdom. Significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
Revenue Recognition. Since July 2015 when retail distribution activities were transferred and retail sales ceased, the Company's software products are sold exclusively as downloads of digital content for which the consumer takes possession of the digital content for a fee. Revenue from product downloads is generally recognized when the download is made available (assuming all other recognition criteria are met).
 
Prior to July 2015, when the Company entered into license or distribution agreements that provided for multiple copies of games in exchange for guaranteed amounts, revenue was recognized in accordance with the terms of the agreements, generally upon delivery of a master copy, assuming our performance obligations were complete and all other recognition criteria were met, or as per-copy royalties are earned on sales of games.
 
Cash and cash equivalents.  Cash equivalents consist of highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase. At various times, the Company has deposits in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limit. The Company has not experienced any losses on these accounts.
 
Accounts and Other Receivables and Accounts Payable and Accrued Expenses. The carrying amounts of accounts and other receivables and accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value as these accounts are largely current and short term in nature.
 
Allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company recognizes an allowance for losses on accounts receivable for estimated probable losses. The allowance is based on historical experiences, current aging of accounts, and other expected future write-offs, including specific identifiable customer accounts considered at risk or uncollectible. Any related expense associated with an allowance for doubtful accounts is recognized as general and administrative expense.
 
Capitalized Software Development Costs and License Fees. Software development costs include fees in the form of milestone payments made to independent software developers and licensors. Software development costs are capitalized once technological feasibility of a product is established and management expects such costs to be recoverable against future revenues. For products where proven game engine technology exists, this may occur early in the development cycle. Technological feasibility is evaluated on a product-by-product basis. Amounts related to software development that are not capitalized are charged immediately to product research and development costs. Commencing upon a related product’s release, capitalized costs are amortized to cost of sales based upon the higher of (i) the ratio of current revenue to total projected revenue or (ii) straight-line charges over the expected marketable life of the product.
 
Prepaid license fees represent license fees to owners for the use of their intellectual property rights in the development of the Company’s products. Minimum guaranteed royalty payments for intellectual property licenses are initially recorded as an asset (prepaid license fees) and a current liability (accrued royalties payable) at the contractual amount upon execution of the contract or when specified milestones or events occur and when no significant performance remains with the licensor. Licenses are expensed to cost of sales at the higher of (i) the contractual royalty rate based on actual sales or (ii) an effective rate based upon total projected revenue related to such license. Capitalized software development costs and prepaid license fees are classified as non-current if they relate to titles for which the Company estimates the release date to be more than one year from the balance sheet date.
 
The amortization period for capitalized software development costs and prepaid license fees is usually no longer than one year from the initial release of the product. If actual revenues or revised forecasted revenues fall below the initial forecasted revenue for a particular license, the charge to cost of sales may be larger than anticipated in any given quarter. The recoverability of capitalized software development costs and prepaid license fees is evaluated quarterly based on the expected performance of the specific products to which the costs relate. When, in management’s estimate, future cash flows will not be sufficient to recover previously capitalized costs, the Company expenses these capitalized costs to “cost of sales-software development costs and license fees,” in the period such a determination is made. These expenses may be incurred prior to a game’s release for games that have been developed. If a game is cancelled prior to completion of development and never released to market, the amount is expensed to operating costs and expenses. If the Company was required to write off licenses, due to changes in market conditions or product acceptance, its results of operations could be materially adversely affected.

Costs of developing online free-to-play social games, including payments to third-party developers, are expensed as research and development expenses. Revenue from these games is largely dependent on players’ future purchasing behavior in the game and currently the Company cannot reliably project that future net cash flows from developed games will exceed related development costs.
 
Prepaid license fees and milestone payments made to the Company’s third party developers are typically considered non-refundable advances against the total compensation they can earn based upon the sales performance of the products. Any additional royalty or other compensation earned beyond the milestone payments is expensed to cost of sales as incurred.
 
Property and equipment.  Property and equipment is stated at cost. Depreciation and amortization is being provided for by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally five years. Amortization of leasehold improvements is provided for over the shorter of the term of the lease or the life of the asset.
 
Income taxes.  The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. The Company evaluates the potential for realization of deferred tax assets at each quarterly balance sheet date and records a valuation allowance for assets for which realization is not more likely than not.
 
Stock Based Compensation. The Company measures all stock-based compensation to employees using a fair value method and records such expense in general and administrative expenses. Compensation expense for stock options is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award, based on the fair value of the option on the date of grant.
 
The fair value for options issued is estimated at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The risk-free rate is derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of the grant. The volatility factor is determined based on the Company’s historical stock prices.
 
The value of restricted stock grants are measured based on the fair market value of the Company's common stock on the date of grant and amortized over the vesting period of, generally, six months to three years.
 
 Extinguishment of Liabilities. During the year ended October 31, 2015, the Company recognized a gain on extinguishment of liabilities of $1.5 million. The Company determined that certain accounts payable balances and claims for license fees and services would never be paid because they were no longer being pursued for payment and had passed the statute of limitations as of October 31, 2015.
 
Loss Per Share. Basic loss per share of common stock is computed by dividing net loss applicable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share excludes the potential impact of common stock options, unvested shares of restricted stock and outstanding common stock purchase warrants because their effect would be anti-dilutive.
 
Commitments and Contingencies.  We are subject to claims and litigation in the ordinary course of our business. We record a liability for commitments and contingencies when the amount is both probable and reasonably estimable.
 
Accounting for Warrants. The Company accounts for the issuance of common stock purchase warrants issued in connection with the equity offerings in accordance with the provisions of ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”).  The Company classifies as equity any contracts that (i) require physical settlement or net-share settlement or (ii) gives the Company a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in its own shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement).  The Company classifies as assets or liabilities any contracts that (i) require net-cash settlement (including a requirement to net-cash settle the contract if an event occurs and if that event is outside the control of the Company) or (ii) gives the counterparty a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement). In addition, Under ASC 815, registered common stock warrants that require the issuance of registered shares upon exercise and do not expressly preclude an implied right to cash settlement are accounted for as derivative liabilities.  The Company classifies these derivative warrant liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as a current liability.

Change in fair value of warrant liability. The Company assessed the classification of common stock purchase warrants as of the date of each offering and determined that such instruments met the criteria for liability classification. Accordingly, the Company classified the warrants as a liability at their fair value and adjusts the instruments to fair value at each reporting period. This liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until the warrants are exercised or expired, and any change in fair value is recognized as “change in the fair value of warrant liabilities” in the consolidated statements of operations. The fair value of the warrants has been estimated using a Black-Scholes valuation model (see Note 3).
 
Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities or the disclosure of gain or loss contingencies at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Among the more significant estimates included in these financial statements are price protection and customer allowances, the valuation of inventory, the recoverability of advance payments for capitalized software development costs and intellectual property licenses, and the valuation allowances for deferred tax benefits. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Other Nonoperating Gains, Net. In the year ended October 31, 2015, in connection with the expiration of its prior facilities lease and its relocation, the Company disposed of property and equipment with a net book value of $92 and received proceeds of $20 from the sale of certain of the property and equipment. The $72 loss on the disposals is included in other non-operating gains, net. In addition, the Company recorded a gain of $270 on the transfer of certain game rights.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements.
 
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") creating a new Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which broadly establishes new standards for the recognition of certain revenue and updates related disclosure requirements. The update becomes effective for the Company on November 1, 2018. The Company is reviewing the potential impact of the statement on its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.
 
In January 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. ASU No. 2016-01 requires equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income; simplifies the impairment assessment of equity investments without readily determinable fair values by requiring a qualitative assessment to identify impairment; eliminates the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet; requires public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes; requires an entity to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk when the entity has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments; requires separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial assets on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements and clarifies that an entity should evaluate the need for a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset related to available-for-sale securities in combination with the entity’s other deferred tax assets. ASU No. 2016-01 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that ASU No. 2016-01 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
 
In February 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) which supersedes FASB ASC Topic 840, Leases (Topic 840) and provides principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both lessees and lessors. The new standard requires lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. This classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, respectively. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than twelve months regardless of classification. Leases with a term of twelve months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases. The standard is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted upon issuance. When adopted, the Company does not expect this guidance to have a material impact on our financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations. The purpose of ASU No. 2016-08 is to clarify the implementation of guidance on principal versus agent considerations. For public entities, the amendments in ASU No. 2016-08 are effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company is currently assessing the impact of ASU No. 2016-08 on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
 
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. Under ASU No. 2016-09, companies will no longer record excess tax benefits and certain tax deficiencies in additional paid-in capital (“APIC”). Instead, they will record all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies as income tax expense or benefit in the income statement and the APIC pools will be eliminated. In addition, ASU No. 2016-09 eliminates the requirement that excess tax benefits be realized before companies can recognize them. ASU No. 2016-09 also requires companies to present excess tax benefits as an operating activity on the statement of cash flows rather than as a financing activity. Furthermore, ASU No. 2016-09 will increase the amount an employer can withhold to cover income taxes on awards and still qualify for the exception to liability classification for shares used to satisfy the employer’s statutory income tax withholding obligation. An employer with a statutory income tax withholding obligation will now be allowed to withhold shares with a fair value up to the amount of taxes owed using the maximum statutory tax rate in the employee’s applicable jurisdiction(s). ASU No. 2016-09 requires a company to classify the cash paid to a tax authority when shares are withheld to satisfy its statutory income tax withholding obligation as a financing activity on the statement of cash flows. Under current U.S. GAAP, it was not specified how these cash flows should be classified. In addition, companies will now have to elect whether to account for forfeitures on share-based payments by (1) recognizing forfeitures of awards as they occur or (2) estimating the number of awards expected to be forfeited and adjusting the estimate when it is likely to change, as is currently required. The amendments of this ASU are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted but all of the guidance must be adopted in the same period. The Company is currently assessing the impact that ASU No. 2016-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements.
 
In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The new guidance is an update to ASC 606 and provides clarity on: identifying performance obligations and licensing implementation. For public companies, ASU No. 2016-10 is effective for annual periods, including interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that ASU No. 2016-10 will have on its consolidated financial statements.
 
3. FAIR VALUE
 
In accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, financial instruments were measured at fair value using a three-level hierarchy which maximizes use of observable inputs and minimizes use of unobservable inputs:
 
 
Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments
 
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar instruments that are directly or indirectly observable in the market
 
Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs supported by little or no market activity.  Financial instruments whose values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, for which determination of fair value requires significant judgment or estimation.
 
Prior to the April 2015 exchange transaction described in Note 8, the Company had outstanding warrants, the December warrants, that contained re-pricing provisions for “down-round” issuances and other events not indexed to the Company’s own stock and were classified as liabilities in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. The Company recognized these warrants as liabilities at their fair value and re-measured them through the date of their exchange in April 2015. ASC 820,  Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures provides requirements for disclosure of liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis in periods subsequent to the initial recognition.
 
The Company uses Level 3 inputs for its valuation methodology for the warrant liabilities.  The estimated fair values were determined using a binomial option pricing model based on various assumptions.  The Company’s derivative liabilities are adjusted to reflect estimated fair value at each period end, with any decrease or increase in the estimated fair value being recorded in other income or expense accordingly, as adjustments to the fair value of derivative liabilities.  Various factors are considered in the pricing models the Company uses to value the warrants, including the Company’s current common stock price, the remaining life of the warrants, the volatility of the Company’s common stock price, and the risk-free interest rate.  In addition, as of the valuation dates, management assessed the probabilities of future financing and other re-pricing events in the binominal valuation models.

In connection with the April 19, 2016 common stock offering, the Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 187,500 shares of common stock.  These warrants are exercisable at $6.90 per share and expire on April 19, 2018. These warrants were analyzed and it was determined that they require liability treatment. Under ASC 815, registered common stock warrants that require the issuance of registered shares upon exercise and do not expressly preclude an implied right to cash settlement are accounted for as derivative liabilities.  The Company classifies these derivative warrant liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet as a current liability.
 
The fair value of these warrants at April 19, 2016 and October 31, 2016 was determined to be approximately $318,000 and $70,000, respectively, as calculated using Black-Scholes with the following assumptions: (1) stock price of $4.74 and $3.58, respectively; (2) a risk free rate of 0.77% and 0.75%, respectively; and (3) an expected volatility of 86% and 61%, respectively.
 
Financial instruments measured at fair value are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. At October 31, 2016, the warrant liability balance of $70,000 was classified as a Level 3 instrument.

Salaries and other compensation includes accrued payroll expense and estimated employer 401K plan liabilities.
 
7. SHORT-TERM FINANCING ARRANGEMENTS
 
Accounts receivable and inventory
 
Prior to July 31, 2015, the Company used a factor to approve credit and to collect the proceeds from a substantial portion of its sales. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company sold to the factor and the factor purchased from the Company, eligible accounts receivable.
 
The factor, in its sole discretion, determined whether or not it would accept the credit risk associated with a receivable. If the factor did not accept the credit risk on a receivable, the Company sold the accounts receivable to the factor while retaining the credit risk. In both cases, the Company surrendered all rights and control over the receivable to the factor. However, in cases where the Company retained the credit risk, the amount could be charged back to the Company in the case of non-payment by the customer. The factor was required to remit payments to the Company for the accounts receivable purchased from it, provided the customer did not have a valid dispute related to the invoice. The amount remitted to the Company by the factor equaled the invoiced amount, adjusted for allowances and discounts the Company provided to the customer, less factor charges.
 
The Company reviewed the collectability of accounts receivable for which it held the credit risk quarterly, based on a review of an aging of open invoices and payment history, to make a determination if any allowance for bad debts was necessary.
 
In addition, the Company could request that the factor provide it with cash advances based on its accounts receivable and inventory, up to a maximum amount.
 
Amounts to be paid to the Company by the factor for any accounts receivable were offset by any amounts previously advanced by the factor. The interest rate was prime plus 1.5%, annually, subject to a 5.5% floor. In certain circumstances, an additional 1.0% annually was charged for advances against inventory.
 
The Company also maintained purchase order financing, up to a maximum of $2,500, to provide funding for the manufacture of its products. In connection with these arrangements, the factor had a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets. The factor charged 0.5% of invoiced amounts, subject to certain minimum charges per invoice.
 
Inventory purchases
 
Prior to July 31, 2015, certain manufacturers required the Company to prepay or present letters of credit upon placing a purchase order for inventory. The Company had arrangements with a finance company which provided financing secured by the specific goods underlying the goods ordered from the manufacturer. The finance company made the required payment to the manufacturer at the time a purchase order is placed, and was entitled to demand payment from the Company when the goods are delivered. The Company paid a financing fee equal to 1.5% of the purchase order amount for each transaction, plus administrative fees. Additional charges of 0.05% per day (18% annualized) were incurred if the financing remained open for more than 30 days.
 
The agreements were terminated in the year ended October 31, 2015.

December Units and Series A Preferred Shares
 
On December 17, 2014, pursuant to subscription agreements (the “December Subscription Agreements”) entered into with certain accredited investors (the “December Investors”) the Company completed a private placement of $6.0 million of units (the “December Units”) at a purchase price of $0.68 per Unit, with each December Unit consisting of one share of the Company’s 0% Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (each a “Series A Preferred Share”) and a five-year warrant (each a “December Warrant”) to purchase one sixth of a share of the Company’s common stock at an initial exercise price of $4.08 per share (such issuance and sale, the “December Private Placement”). The December Warrants were subsequently exchanged for shares of the Company’s 0% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Shares”) and shares of the Company’s common stock (see below). The offering was made in reliance upon an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
 
The Series A Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Series A Preferred Share, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, on such Series A Preferred Share, as of such date of determination, divided by the conversion price. The stated value of each Preferred Share is $0.68 and the initial conversion price is $4.08 per share, each subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, combinations, subdivisions or other similar events. In addition, in the event the Company issues or sells, or is deemed to issue or sell, shares of its common stock at a per share price that is less than the conversion price then in effect, the conversion price shall be reduced to such lower price, subject to certain exceptions. Pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the 0% Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of Majesco Entertainment Company, the Company is prohibited from incurring debt or liens, or entering into new financing transactions without the consent of the lead investor (as defined in the December Subscription Agreements) as long as any of the Series A Preferred Shares are outstanding. The Series A Preferred Shares bear no dividends.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
The holders of Series A Preferred Shares shall vote together with the holders of common stock on all matters on an as if converted basis, subject to certain conversion and ownership limitations, and shall not vote as a separate class. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the conversion price for purposes of calculating voting power shall in no event be lower than $3.54 per share. At no time may all or a portion of the Series A Preferred Shares be converted if the number of shares of common stock to be issued pursuant to such conversion would exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of common stock owned by the holder at such time, the number of shares of common stock which would result in such Holder beneficially owning (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act and the rules thereunder) more than 4.99% of all of the common stock outstanding at such time; provided, however, that the holder may waive the 4.99% limitation at which time he may not own beneficially own more than 9.99% of all the common stock outstanding at such time.
 
Prior to the exchange transaction described below, the December Warrants were exercisable at any time at a price of $4.08 per share, subject to adjustment, and expired five years from the date of issuance. The holders could exercise the December Warrants for shares of common stock on a cashless basis if there was no effective registration statement or no current prospectus available for resale of the underlying shares of common stock. The December Warrants were subject to certain adjustments upon certain actions by the Company as outlined in the December Warrants, including, for twenty-four months following the initial issuance date, the issuance or sale, or deemed issuance or sale, by the Company of shares of its common stock at a per share price that is less than the exercise price then in effect.
 
The proceeds of the offering and certificates representing the Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants underlying the December Units issued in the offering were deposited into escrow accounts. Upon the closing of the December Private Placement on December 17, 2014 (such date, the “December Closing Date”), $1.0 million of the December Escrow Amount was released to the Company and $1.0 million of December Units to the December Investors, on a pro rata basis. Effective upon the approval of the Company’s stockholders on March 30, 2015, in one or multiple tranches, the remaining $5.0 million became eligible to be released to the Company and $5.0 million of December Units became eligible to be released to the December Investors from their respective escrow accounts, if either, (i) the lead investor has approved the release, (ii) the approval of the requisite number of December Investors has been obtained, (iii) the Company has executed definitive binding documents for certain transactions, as described in the December Subscription Agreements, and such transaction(s) are to close contemporaneously with the release, following approval by the Company’s stockholders or (iv) the following conditions are present: (a) nine months has elapsed from the December Closing Date and release is approved by each of the directors appointed at closing (being the non-continuing directors); (b) no subsequent release of the December Escrow Amount has been consummated; and (c) no more than $1.0 million is released (the “December Release Conditions”). In the event that on and as of the twelve month anniversary of the December Closing Date none of the December Release Conditions have been satisfied, $5.0 million would be returned on a pro rata basis to the December Investors, without interest or deduction, and $5,000 of December Units would be returned to the Company for cancellation. On September 25, 2015, the lead investor approved the release and the escrow agent released all funds and corresponding December Units remaining in escrow. 
 
The Company received net proceeds of $801,000 for the December Units released from escrow, net of offering costs, and has accounted for each of the Series A Preferred Shares released from escrow, the December Warrants released from escrow and the Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants remaining in escrow as freestanding instruments.
 
The Company has evaluated the guidance ASC 480-10 Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity and ASC 815-40 Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity to determine the appropriate classification of the instruments. Prior to the exchange described below, the exercise price of the released December Warrants could be adjusted downward if the Company issued securities at a price below the initial exercise price and in certain other circumstances outside the control of the Company and therefore contain contingent settlement terms not indexed solely to the Company’s own shares of common stock. Accordingly, $603,000 of proceeds were recorded as a derivative liability representing the fair value of the December Warrants released from escrow at issuance and $120,000 of offering costs allocated to the December Warrants were expensed. As a result of the allocations, described above, the Series A Preferred Shares released were deemed to have a beneficial conversion feature at issuance amounting to $397,000, which was recorded in stockholders’ equity and immediately charged as a dividend in determining net loss attributable to common stockholders.
 
The remaining net proceeds of $318,000 were allocated to the Series A Preferred Shares net of $79,000 of offering costs. The Series A Preferred Shares do not represent an unconditional obligation to be settled in a variable number of shares of common stock, are not redeemable and do not contain fixed or indexed conversion provisions similar to debt instruments. Accordingly, the Series A Preferred Shares are considered equity hosts and recorded in stockholders’ equity.

Upon stockholder approval in March 2015 of full conversion provisions of the escrowed December Warrants, the Company recorded a warrant liability and a discount on the Series A Preferred Shares amounting to $3,162, based on the estimated fair value of the warrants. In addition, upon shareholder approval of the full conversion provisions of the escrowed Series A Preferred Shares, the carrying value of such Series A Preferred Shares, net of proceeds remaining in escrow was reclassified from temporary equity to paid-in capital. The Company recorded a beneficial conversion feature and a discount on the Series A Preferred Shares amounting to $1.8 million, which was immediately recognized as a deemed dividend in determining net loss attributable to common shareholders.
  
In connection with the December Private Placement, the Company also entered into separate Registration Rights Agreements with each December Investor, (as amended on January 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015, the “December Registration Rights Agreement”). The Company agreed to use its best efforts to file by March 31, 2015 a registration statement covering the resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise or conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares and December Warrants and to maintain its effectiveness until all such securities have been sold or may be sold without restriction under Rule 144 of the Securities Act. In the event the Company fails to satisfy its obligations under the December Registration Rights Agreements, the Company is required to pay to the December Investors on a monthly basis an amount equal to 1% of the investors’ investment, up to a maximum of 12%. On March 31, 2015, the Company and the required holders of December Units amended the registration rights agreement to extend the filing deadline for the registration statement to June 30, 2015.
 
April 2015 Exchange and Series B Preferred Shares
 
On April 30, 2015, pursuant to warrant exchange agreements, the Company retired the 1,470,590 December Warrants issued in the December Private Placement, including those subject to the escrow conditions and those released from escrow, in exchange for shares of the Company's common stock, or shares of 0% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Shares”), in lieu of shares of common stock equal, on an as-converted basis, to the number of shares of common stock that would have otherwise been received by the holder, if such issuance would result in the recipient holder exceeding certain thresholds. An aggregate of 1,050,421 shares of common stock, which amount includes the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, were issuable in connection with the exchange agreements. The Company re-measured the fair value of the December Warrants through the date of their exchange and recorded related losses in its statement of operations. In the year ending October 31, 2015, the Company recorded a change in fair value of $1.5 million related to the increase in the fair value of the December Warrants during the period outstanding. Upon exchange, the contingent-conversion features of the December Warrants expired and the carrying value of the warrant liability of $5.3 million was reclassified to paid-in capital and allocated to the Series B Preferred Shares and the common shares distributed. Such Series B Shares and shares of common stock exchanged for the December Warrants are not held in escrow and as such are not subject to the December Release Conditions.
  
The Series B Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Series B Preferred Shares, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, on such Series B Preferred Shares, as of such date of determination, divided by the conversion price. The stated value of each Series B Preferred Share is $140.00 and the initial conversion price is $8.40 per share, each subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, combinations, subdivisions or other similar events. The Company is prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, which beneficial ownership limitation may be increased by the holder up to, but not exceeding, 9.99%.  Subject to such beneficial ownership limitations, each holder is entitled to vote on all matters submitted to stockholders of the Company on an as converted basis, based on a conversion price of $8.40 per share.  The Series B Preferred Shares rank junior to the Series A Preferred Shares and bear no dividends. All of the convertible preferred shares do not represent an unconditional obligation to be settled in a variable number of shares, are not redeemable and do not contain fixed or indexed conversion provisions similar to debt instruments. Accordingly, the convertible preferred shares are considered equity hosts and recorded in stockholders’ equity.

May 2015 Units and Series C Preferred Shares
 
On May 15, 2015 (the “May Closing Date”), the Company completed a private placement pursuant to separate subscription agreements (the “May Subscription Agreements”) with accredited investors (the “May Investors”) of $5,050 of units (the “May Units”), at a purchase price of $7.20 per Unit, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $5.0 million.  Each May Unit consists of one share of the Company’s common stock, provided that, if the issuance of any such shares of common stock would have resulted in the recipient May Investor owning in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, then such May Investor could elect to receive shares of the Company’s 0% Series C Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Shares”) in lieu of common stock that are, on an as converted basis, equal to one share of common stock for every May Unit purchased, and a three-year warrant (the “May Warrants”) to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $8.40 per share (such sale and issuance, the “May Private Placement”).  An aggregate of 25,763 Series C Preferred Shares, 271,997 shares of common stock and 701,390 May Warrants were issued under the May Units. The offering was made in reliance upon an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
 
The Series C Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Series C Preferred Shares, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, on such Series C Preferred Shares, as of such date of determination, divided by the conversion price.  The stated value of each Series C Preferred Share is $120.00 per share, and the initial conversion price is $7.20 per share, each subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, combinations, subdivisions or other similar events.  In addition, in the event the Company issues or sells, or is deemed to issue or sell, shares of common stock at a per share price that is less than the conversion price then in effect, the conversion price shall be reduced to such lower price, subject to certain exceptions and provided that the conversion price may not be reduced to less than $5.16, unless and until such time as the Company obtains shareholder approval to allow for a lower conversion price.  The Company is prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Series C Preferred Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such May Investor would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Shares, which beneficial ownership limitation may be increased by the holder up to, but not exceeding, 9.99%.  Subject to the beneficial ownership limitations discussed previously, each holder is entitled to vote on all matters submitted to stockholders of the Company, and shall have the number of votes equal to the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of such holder’s Series C Preferred Shares, based on a conversion price of $7.20 per share.  The Series C Preferred Shares bear no dividends and shall rank junior to the Company’s Series A Preferred Shares but senior to the Company’s Series B Preferred Shares.
 
The May Warrants are exercisable, at any time, following the date the May Warrants are issued, at a price of $8.40 per share, subject to adjustment, and expire three years from the date of issuance. The holders may, subject to certain limitations, exercise the May Warrants on a cashless basis. The Company is prohibited from effecting an exercise of any May Warrant to the extent that, as a result of any such exercise, the holder would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon exercise of such May Warrant, which beneficial ownership limitation may be increased by the holder up to, but not exceeding, 9.99%.  
  
In connection with the sale of the May Units, the Company also entered into separate registration rights agreements (the “May Registration Rights Agreement”) with each May Investor. The Company agreed to use its best efforts to file a registration statement to register the Shares and the common stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series C Preferred Shares, within thirty days following the May Closing Date, to cause such registration statement to be declared effective within ninety days of the filing day and to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement until all of such shares of common stock have been sold or are otherwise able to be sold pursuant to Rule 144 without restriction.  In the event the Company fails to satisfy its obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company is obligated to pay to the May Investors on a monthly basis, an amount equal to 1% of the May Investor’s investment, up to a maximum of 12%. Effective as of the original filing deadline of the registration statement, the Company obtained the requisite approval from the May Investors for the waiver of its obligations under the May Registration Rights Agreement.
 
The proceeds of the May Private Placement were deposited into an escrow account (the “May Escrow Amount”) with Signature Bank, as escrow agent (the “May Escrow Agent”) pursuant to an escrow agreement (the “May Escrow Agreement”), entered into by and between the Company, the lead investor (as defined in the May Subscription Agreements) and the May Escrow Agent, and certificates representing the May Warrants and a record of the Shares and Series C Preferred Shares, sold in the May Private Placement were deposited and recorded with the Company’s corporate secretary (the “May Securities Escrow Agent”) to be held in escrow. On the May Closing Date, twenty percent (20%) of the May Escrow Amount ($1.0 million) was released by the May Escrow Agent to the Company in exchange for the release of twenty percent (20%) of May Units by the May Securities Escrow Agent to the May Investors.  The remaining eighty percent (80%) of the May Escrow Amount ($4.0 million) was released by the May Escrow Agent to the Company and the corresponding percentage of May Units were released to the May Investors, under amendments to the May subscription agreements. On September 25, 2015, the lead investor approved the release and the May Escrow Agent and the May Securities Escrow Agent released all funds and May Units remaining in escrow.

Accordingly, the Series C Preferred Shares are considered equity hosts and recorded in stockholders’ equity. The May Warrants do not contain contingent settlement terms not indexed solely to the Company’s own shares of common stock and, accordingly, were also recorded in stockholders' equity. The Company allocated $2.0 million, $1.3 million and $1.8 million of gross proceeds to the Series C Preferred Stock, the common stock and the warrants, respectively, based on their relative fair values. The Company incurred $25,000 of offering expenses.
 
September 2015 Exchange and Series D Preferred Shares
 
On September 25, 2015, the Company entered into Amendment Agreements (the “Amendments”) which amended the terms of the December Subscription Agreements and May Subscription Agreements. Under the Amendments, the lead investors under the subscription agreements agreed to release all funds remaining held in escrow ($5.0 million under the December 17, 2014 closing and $4.0 million under the May 15, 2015 closing) upon the appointment of certain persons as officers and directors of the Company.
 
In connection with the Amendments, the Company also entered into Exchange Agreements with the holders of the May Warrants (the “September Exchange Agreements”) and authorized the issuance of .4 shares of common stock for each share of our Common Stock into which the May Warrants was then convertible, in exchange for cancellation of the May Warrants.  The Company agreed that holders of the May Warrants could exchange their May Warrants and receive either: (1) .4 shares of common stock for each share of common stock into which the May Warrant was exercisable immediately, or (2) at the election of any holder who would, as a result of receipt of the common stock hold in excess of 4.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock, shares of 0% Series D Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred D Shares”) exercisable for common stock on the same basis, but subject to 4.9% beneficial ownership blocker provisions which at the election of the holder, could be reduced to 2.49%. Under the agreement, the Company exchanged all of its May Warrants for an aggregate of 168,333 new shares of 0% Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, which upon full conversion on a fully-diluted basis, convert into 280,555 shares of newly issued common stock.
 
The Preferred D Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of such Preferred D Share, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, on such Preferred D Share, as of such date of determination, divided by the conversion price. The stated value of each Preferred D Share is $1,000.00 per share and the initial conversion price is $600.00 per share, each subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations, combinations, subdivisions or other similar events. The Company is prohibited from effecting a conversion of the Preferred D Shares to the extent that, as a result of such conversion, such investor would beneficially own more than 4.99% of the number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of common stock upon conversion of the Preferred D Shares. Upon 61 days written notice, the beneficial ownership limitation may be increased by the holder up to, but not exceeding, 9.99%. Except as otherwise required by law, holders of Series D Preferred Shares shall not have any voting rights. Pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the 0% Series D Convertible Preferred Stock, the Preferred D Shares bear no interest and shall rank senior to the Company’s other classes of capital stock. The Company accounted for the exchange as a redemption of the warrants and recorded the estimated fair value of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock issued, amounting to $1,969 with a charge to paid-in capital. As the value of the preferred shares issued was less than the value of the warrants redeemed, no excess value needed to be attributed and no portion of the redemption was deemed a dividend.
 
April 2016 Registered Common Stock and Warrant Offering
 
On April 13, 2016, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain institutional investors providing for the issuance and sale by the Company of 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share at an offering price of $6.00 per share, for net proceeds of $1.4 million after deducting placement agent fees and expenses. In addition, the Company sold to purchasers of common stock in this offering, warrants to purchase 187,500 shares of its common stock. The common shares and the warrant shares were offered by the Company pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which was initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 22, 2015 and declared effective on December 7, 2015. The closing of the offering occurred on April 19, 2016.
 
Each warrant is immediately exercisable for two years, but not thereafter, at an exercise price of $6.90 per share. Subject to limited exceptions, a holder of warrants will not have the right to exercise any portion of its warrants if the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of our common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such exercise.  The exercise price and number of warrants are subject to adjustment in the event of any stock dividends and splits, reverse stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction. The warrants require the issuance of registered shares upon exercise and do not expressly preclude an implied right to cash settlement by the holder.  The warrants were classified as liabilities and measured at fair value, with changes in fair value recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Operations in other expenses (income). The initial recognition of the warrants resulted in an allocation of the net proceeds from the offering to a warrant liability at fair value of approximately $318,000, with the remainder being attributable to the common stock sold in the offering.

Stock options are generally granted to employees or directors at exercise prices equal to the fair market value of the Company’s stock at the dates of grant. Stock options generally vest over one to three years and have a term of five to ten years. The total fair value of options granted during the year ended October 31, 2016 was approximately $1.2 million. The intrinsic value of options outstanding at October 31, 2016 was $0. The intrinsic value of options exercised during the fiscal years ended October 31, 2016 was $15,000.
