NOTES TO CONDENSED 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 2015, the Company transferred retail distribution activities, assets and obligations to a company owned by its former chief executive officer (see Note 13).
 
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.
 
Major customers. Microsoft, Sony, Valve and Nintendo accounted for 37%, 26%, 15% and 14%, respectively, of sales for the quarter ended January 31, 2016. Sony and Microsoft accounted for 28% and 26%, respectively, of accounts receivable as of January 31, 2016.

 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 quarters ended January 31, 2016 and 2015 sales of the Company’s Zumba Fitness games accounted for approximately 10% and 22% of net revenues, respectively.
 
The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company are unaudited, but in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim period. Accordingly, they do not include all information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The Company’s financial results are impacted by the seasonality of the retail selling season and the timing of the release of new titles. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire fiscal year. The balance sheet at October 31, 2015 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. These interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended October 31, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 10-K on January 29, 2015.
 
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. The Company has recognized revenue upon the shipment of its products when: (1) title and the risks and rewards of ownership are transferred; (2) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (3) there are no continuing obligations to the customer; and (4) the collection of related accounts receivable is probable. Certain products have been sold to customers with a street date (the earliest date these products may be resold by retailers). Revenue for sales of these products is not recognized prior to their street date. Some of the Company’s software products provide limited online features at no additional cost to the consumer. Generally, such features have been considered to be incidental to the Company’s overall product offerings and an inconsequential deliverable. Accordingly, the Company does not defer any revenue related to products containing these limited online features. However, in instances where online features or additional functionality is considered a substantive deliverable in addition to the software product, such characteristics will be taken into account when applying the Company’s revenue recognition policy.  While the Company has historically sold its products through two sales channels, retail and digital, in 2015, the Company transferred retail distribution activities, assets and obligations to a company owned by its former chief executive officer (see Note 13).

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
The Company generally sold its products to retailers and distributors on a no-return basis, although in certain instances, the Company provided price protection or other allowances on certain unsold products. Price protection, when granted and applicable, allows customers a partial credit against amounts they owe the Company with respect to merchandise unsold by them. Revenue is recognized, and accounts receivable is presented, net of estimates of these allowances.
 
The Company estimated potential future product price protection and other allowances related to current period product revenue. The Company analyzed historical experience, current sell through of retailer inventory of the Company’s products, current trends in the video game market, the overall economy, changes in customer demand and acceptance of the Company’s products and other related factors when evaluating the adequacy of price protection and other allowances.
 
Sales incentives or other consideration given by the Company to customers that were considered adjustments of the selling price of its products, such as rebates and product placement fees, were reflected as reductions of revenue. Sales incentives and other consideration that represent costs incurred by the Company for benefits received, such as the appearance of the Company’s products in a customer’s national circular ad, are reflected as selling and marketing expenses, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605-50, Customer Payments and Incentives.
 
In certain instances, customers and distributors provided the Company with cash advances on their orders. These advances are then applied against future sales to these customers. Advances were classified as advances from customers and deferred revenue in the accompanying balance sheets.
 
The Company’s software products are sold 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 the Company operates hosted online games in which players can play for free and purchase virtual goods for use in the games, it recognizes revenues from the sale of virtual goods as service revenues over the estimated period in which players use the game. It currently estimates these periods of use to be three to four months. The Company periodically assesses its estimates for this period of use and future increases or decreases in these estimates and adjusts recognized revenues prospectively. The Company also recognizes advertising revenue as ads are served. The Company has not earned significant revenue to date related to hosted online games or advertising.
 
The Company records revenue for distribution agreements where it is acting as an agent as defined by ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, Subtopic 45, Principal Agent Considerations, on a net basis. When the Company enters 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 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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.

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.

Extinguishment of Liabilities. During the three months ended January 31, 2015, the Company recognized a gain on extinguishment of liabilities of $526,000. 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 January 31, 2015.
 
Gain on asset sales, net. During the three months ended January 31, 2015, we recognized approximately $125,000 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.

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.

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 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.

3. FAIR VALUE
 
The fair value accounting framework provides a hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to estimates of fair value that gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs and the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs. Level 1 inputs are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access. Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs. Accordingly, the Company’s fair value estimates maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs, consistent with the characteristics of the asset or liability.

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 share of the Company’s common stock at an initial exercise price of $0.68 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 $0.68 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 $0.59 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 $0.68 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 by 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. During the year ended October 31, 2015, 46,561 Series A Preferred Shares were converted into common stock and $17,000 of remaining unamortized discounts were recognized as a deemed dividend. The Company may record additional deemed dividends for any unamortized discounts on its Series A Preferred Shares if such shares are converted.
 
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 8,823,537 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 6,302,525 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 periods 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, based on a conversion price of $1.40 per 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 Preferred Share is $140.00 and the initial conversion price is $1.40 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 $1.40 per shares. 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 $1.20 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 $1.40 per share (such sale and issuance, the “May Private Placement”).  An aggregate of 25,763 Series C Preferred Shares, 1,631,984 shares of common stock and 4,208,337 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 $1.20 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 $0.86, 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 $1.30 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 $1.40 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.
 
The Company 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. The Series C 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 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 net 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 1,683,333 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 Preferred D Shares is $1,000.00 per share and the initial conversion price is $100.00 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.

8. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENTS
 
Stock-based compensation expense in the three months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015 amounted to approximately $547,000 and $220,000 respectively. Stock-based compensation expense is recorded in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.

The value of stock option grants is amortized over the vesting period of, generally, one to three years. As of January 31, 2016, there was approximately $43,000 of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock option awards, which is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average vesting period of 0.5 year.

A summary of the Company’s restricted stock activity in the three months ended January 31, 2016 is presented below:

Weighted-Average Grant-Date Fair Value

    1,162,080     $ 1.22  
 
 The weighted-average fair value of restricted shares granted during the three months ended January 31, 2016 was $0.77. The total fair value of restricted stock vested during the three months ended January 31, 2016 was approximately $535,000.
 
The value of restricted stock grants are measured based on their fair value on the date of grant and amortized over the vesting period of, generally, six months to three years. As of January 31, 2016, there was approximately $1.1 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested restricted stock awards, which is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average vesting period of 0.7 years. The vesting period of 630,212 restricted shares is subject to acceleration upon the achievement of certain performance conditions related to financing or other corporate transactions.
  
9. INCOME TAXES
 
Due to the Company’s history of losses and uncertainty of future taxable income, a valuation allowance sufficient to fully offset net operating losses and other deferred tax assets has been established. The valuation allowance will be maintained until sufficient positive evidence exists to support a conclusion that a valuation allowance is not necessary. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015 differed from the expected U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to the change in the valuation allowance. Full conversion of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock will likely result in limitations on the utilization of the Company’s net operating loss carryforwards under IRS section 382.
 
10. LOSS PER SHARE
 
Shares of common stock issuable under convertible preferred stock, warrants and options and shares subject to restricted stock grants were not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per common share for the three months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, as the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.
 
The table below provides total potential shares outstanding, including those that are anti-dilutive, on January 31, 2016:

MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARY
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
Contingencies
 
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. The motion is currently pending. The Company cannot currently estimate a potential range of loss if the claim against the Company is successful.
 
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.
 
Commitments
 
The Company incurs rent expense under a short-term operating lease for administrative offices, which expires in fiscal 2016. Total rent expense amounted to approximately $6,000 and $90,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, including charges incurred upon vacating its previous administrative offices.
 
The Company has entered into employment agreements with key executives that contain severance terms and change of control provisions.
 
12. RELATED PARTIES
 
In January 2015, the Company entered into an agreement with Equity Stock Transfer for transfer agent services. A Board member of the Company is a co-founder and chief executive officer of Equity Stock Transfer. Fees under the agreement were approximately $2,000 in the three months ended January 31, 2016.

13. ASSIGNMENT OF ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

On July 31, 2015, the Company transferred to Zift Interactive LLC (“Zift”), a newly-formed subsidiary, certain rights under certain of its publishing licenses related to developing, publishing and distributing video game products through retail distribution for a term of one year. The Company transferred Zift to its former chief executive officer, Jesse Sutton. In exchange, the Company received Mr. Sutton’s resignation from the position of chief executive officer of the Company, including waiver of any severance payments and the execution of a separation agreement, together with his agreement to serve as a consultant to the Company. In addition, Zift will pay the Company a specified percent of its net revenue from retail sales on a quarterly basis.
 
In addition, the Company entered into a conveyance agreement with Zift under which it assigned to Zift certain assets used in the retail business and Zift agreed to assume and indemnify the Company for liabilities and claims related to the retail business, including customer claims for price protection and promotional allowances. The assets transferred to Zift included cash in an amount of $800,000, of which $400,000 was transferred immediately and the remaining $400,000 is payable by the Company in twelve equal consecutive monthly installments of $33,000 commencing August 1, 2015, and certain accounts receivable and inventory with an aggregate carrying value of approximately $87,000.  As of January 31, 2016, the Company had a payable of approximately $207,000 to Zift.
 
14. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

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 has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market and, at this time, the common stock will continue to trade on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “COOL”.
 
The Company has a period of 180 calendar days, or until August 30, 2016, to achieve compliance with the Rule. The Company will regain compliance with the Rule if, at any time before August 30, 2016, the closing bid price for the Company’s common stock is at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. In the event the Company does not regain compliance with the Rule by August 30, 2016, the Company may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period. To qualify, the Company would be required to meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The NASDAQ Capital Market, with the exception of the bid price requirement, and would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the bid price deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split, if necessary.

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.
 
Video Game Products
 
Net Revenues.  Our revenues are principally derived from sales of our video games. We provide video games primarily for the mass market and casual-game player. Our revenues are recognized net of estimated provisions for price protection and other allowances. When we act as an agent in the distribution of games developed by others, we recognize revenue net of the share of revenue due to the developer in the form of wholesale price, royalties and/or distribution fees.
 
Cost of Sales.  Cost of sales consists of product costs and amortization and impairment of capitalized software development costs and license fees. A significant component of our cost of sales of packaged games is product costs. Product costs are comprised primarily of manufacturing and packaging costs of the disc or cartridge media, royalties to the platform manufacturer and manufacturing and packaging costs of peripherals. 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.  Product research and development expenses have historically related principally to our cost of supervision of third party video game developers, testing new products, development of social games and conducting quality assurance evaluations during the development cycle that are not allocated to games for which technological feasibility has been established. Costs incurred have been primarily employee-related, may include equipment, and are not allocated to cost of sales. Ongoing research and development activities have been substantially reduced since fiscal 2014.
 
Selling and Marketing Expenses.  Our selling and marketing expenses previously consisted of advertising and promotion expenses, including television advertising, the cost of shipping products to customers, and related employee costs. Credits to retailers for trade advertising were components of these expenses. Following the transfer of retail distribution activities in July 2015, such expenses are now limited to selected activities 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.
 
 
-16-

 
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.
 
Seasonality and Variations in Interim Quarterly Results
 
Historically we sold products through two sales channels, retail and digital, we currently only sell digitally.  In the past, we would   experience generally higher sales in the first and fourth quarters of our fiscal year (ending January 31 and October 31, respectively) due to increased retail sales during the holiday season. Currently, we believe that we have little to no seasonality.

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.
 
Revenue Recognition.  We recognized revenue on the sale of packaged goods upon the shipment of our product when: (1) risks and rewards of ownership are transferred; (2) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (3) we have no continuing obligations to the customer; and (4) the collection of related accounts receivable is probable. Certain products are sold to customers with a street date (the earliest date these products may be resold by retailers). Revenue for sales of these products is not recognized prior to their street date. Some of our software products provide limited online features at no additional cost to the consumer. Generally, we have considered such features to be incidental to our overall product offerings and an inconsequential deliverable. Accordingly, we do not defer any revenue related to products containing these limited online features. However, in instances where online features or additional functionality is considered a substantive deliverable in addition to the software product, such characteristics will be taken into account when applying our revenue recognition policy. To date, we have not earned significant revenues from such features. In addition, some of 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.
 
Price Protection and Other Allowances.  We generally sold our products on a no-return basis, although in certain instances, we provide price protection or other allowances on certain unsold products in accordance with industry practices. Price protection, when granted and applicable, allows customers a partial credit with respect to merchandise unsold by them. Revenue is recognized net of estimates of these allowances. Sales incentives and other consideration that represent costs incurred by us for benefits received, such as the appearance of our products in a customer’s national circular advertisement, are generally reflected as selling and marketing expenses. We estimate potential future product price protection and other discounts related to current period product revenue.
 
Our provisions for price protection and other allowances fluctuate over periods as a result of a number of factors including analysis of historical experience, current sell-through of retailer inventory of our products, current trends in the interactive entertainment market, the overall economy, changes in customer demand and acceptance of our products and other related factors. Significant management judgments and estimates must be made and used in connection with establishing the allowance for returns and price protection in any accounting period.
 
 
-17-

 
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 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
 
Three months ended January 31, 2016 versus three months ended January 31, 2015

In 2015, the Company transferred to Zift Interactive LLC (“Zift”), a newly-formed subsidiary, certain rights under certain of its publishing licenses related to developing, publishing and distributing video game products through retail distribution for a term of one year. The Company transferred Zift to its former chief executive officer, Jesse Sutton. In exchange, the Company received Mr. Sutton’s resignation from the position of chief executive officer of the Company, including waiver of any severance payments and the execution of a separation agreement, together with his agreement to serve as a consultant to the Company. In addition, Zift will pay the Company a specified percent of its net revenue from retail sales on a quarterly basis. Approximately $133,000 was paid to Zift during the quarter ended January 31, 2016.
 
Net Revenues. Net revenues for the three months ended January 31, 2016 decreased 83% to approximately $591,000 from $3.5 million in the comparable quarter last year. The decrease was due to lower sales of Zumba titles, including a decrease in Zumba revenue from Europe. We did not release a new Zumba title in the current-year period. Overall Zumba sales accounted for 22% of revenues in the prior-year period. Additionally, there were no retail sales due to the transfer of the retail distribution channel to Zift.
 
Gross Profit. Gross profit for the three months ended January 31, 2016 decreased 61% to approximately $533,000 compared to a gross profit of $1.4 million in the same period last year. 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 sales was 90% for the three months ended January 31, 2016, compared to 39% for the three months ended January 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 three months ended January 31, 2016 increased 35% to approximately $35,000 compared to $26,000 in the same period last year.
 
Selling and Marketing Expenses. Total selling and marketing expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2016 decreased 95% to approximately $23,000 compared to approximately $440,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2015. The decrease is primarily due to lower personnel costs and other marketing and distribution activities related to our games generally.
 
General and Administrative Expenses. For the three-month period ended January 31, 2016, general and administrative expenses decreased 38% to approximately $1.1 million compared to $1.7 million for the three months ended January 31, 2015. The decrease reflects lower compensation costs, consulting and professional fees and related support expenses.
 
Operating loss. Operating loss for the three months ended January 31, 2016 decreased 37% to approximately $654,000, compared to an operating loss of approximately $1.0 million in the comparable period in 2015, primarily reflecting expense reductions in development and marketing activities.
 
Extinguishment of liabilities. During the three months ended January 31, 2015, we recognized a gain on extinguishment of liabilities of approximately $526,000. 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. During the three months ended January 31, 2015, we recognized approximately $125,000 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.

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 three months ended January 31, 2015, we recognized a loss of approximately $779,000 reflecting an increase in our stock price from the issuance date of the warrant to January 31, 2015.  We did not have any warrant liabilities during the three months ended January 31, 2016.
 
Income Taxes. In the three months ended January 31, 2016 and 2015, our income tax expense was not significant, representing primarily minimum state income taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of January 31, 2016, our cash and cash equivalents balance was $6.7 million and our working capital was approximately $5.7 million, compared to cash and equivalents of $17.1 million and working capital of $15.6 million at October 31, 2015.
 
In fiscal 2013, 2014 and 2015, we 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. We are evaluating various strategic alternatives to maximize company value including the acquisition of businesses that are not related to our existing video game operations. Additionally, the terms of the private placements restrict us from seeking funding from other sources as long as the preferred shares are outstanding, without the required consent of the holders of such shares.
 
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. We do not expect to maintain significant similar working capital balances in the foreseeable future or experience the variability in such balances previously associated with new releases and seasonal activities. Accordingly, current cash and working capital balances exceed expected working capital requirements for our current digital distribution activities over the foreseeable future. Our operating results may vary significantly from period to period and our ability to achieve future profitability or cash flows from operations is dependent on increased revenue.  We may be required to modify our plans, or seek outside sources of financing, and/or equity sales, if our operating plan and sales targets are not met. There can be no assurance that such funds will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. In the event that we are unable to negotiate alternative financing, or negotiate terms that are acceptable to us, we may be forced to modify our business plan materially, including making reductions in game development and other expenditures. Excess cash and working capital balances may be used in future development activities or investments in new businesses, which may also significantly affect our financial condition and operating results.
 
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, we completed a private placement of $6.0 million of units (the “December Units”) at a purchase price of $0.68 per December Unit, with each December Unit consisting of one share of our 0% Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) and a five year warrant (the “December Warrants”) to purchase one share of our common stock at an initial exercise price of $0.68 per share (such issuance and sale the “December Private Placement”). The December Warrants were subsequently exchanged for shares of our 0% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Shares”) and shares of our common stock.
  
The Series A Preferred Shares are convertible into shares of common stock based on a conversion calculation equal to the stated value of the of such Series A Preferred Shares ($0.68 per share), plus all accrued and unpaid dividends, if any, divided by the conversion price (initially $0.68 per share, subject to adjustment). In the event 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. Additionally, we are 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 converted” basis, subject to beneficial 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 $0.59 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 to such holders pursuant to such conversion would exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of common stock owned by the holder at such time, 4.99% of our outstanding common stock, subject to increase to 9.99%.
 
 
-20-


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 8,823,537 December Warrants, including those then held in escrow, for shares of common stock or Series B Preferred Shares. An aggregate of 6,302,525 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 $1.40 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 $1.40 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 $1.20 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 $1.40 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 ($1.20 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 $0.86.  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 $1.30 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, immediately, at a price of $1.40 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. We are 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.

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 1,683,330 shares of common stock in exchange for the cancellation of Series C Warrants to purchase 4,208,337 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 ($100.00 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 the 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.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk
 
Not applicable.
 
Item 4. 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 the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Rule 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.
 
While we believe our disclosure controls and procedures and our internal control over financial reporting are adequate, 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 the 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 condensed 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.
 
Subsequent to period end, 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.
 
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
 
Item 1. 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. The motion is currently pending. The Company cannot currently estimate a potential range of loss if the claim against the Company is successful.
 
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.
