Note 1. The Company and basis of Presentation

Basis of Presentation


The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Loop Industries, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the "Company") have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended May 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending February 28, 2017.


The Company


Loop Holdings, Inc. was incorporated on March 11, 2010 under the laws of the State of Nevada, under the name "Radikal Phones Inc." We changed our name to "First American Group Inc." on October 7, 2010, and then we changed our name to our current name, "Loop Industries, Inc.", effective July 21, 2015.


On June 29, 2015, Loop Industries, Inc. entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Share Exchange Agreement"), by and among the Company, and the holders of common stock of Loop Holdings, Inc. Under the terms and conditions of the Share Exchange Agreement, the Company offered, sold and issued 23,257,500 shares of common stock in consideration for all the issued and outstanding shares in Loop Holdings. The effect of the issuance was that Loop Holdings shareholders held approximately 78.1% of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company upon consummation of the Share Exchange Agreement.


Pursuant to a Stock Redemption Agreement dated June 29, 2015 entered into commensurate with the share exchange, the Company redeemed 25,000,000 shares of First American Group common stock from two stockholders' for an aggregate redemption price of $16,000.


As the former owners and management of Loop industries have voting and operating control of the Company after the share exchange, the transaction has been accounted for as a recapitalization with the Loop deemed the acquiring company for accounting purposes, and the Company deemed the legal acquirer. No step-up in basis or intangible assets or goodwill was recorded and the aggregate cost of $60,571 representing the net liabilities assumed of $35,243, $16,000 cost of the redeemed shares and closing costs of $9,328 was reflected as a cost of the transaction in June 2015. The consolidated financial statements reflect the historical results of Loop Industries prior to the Share Exchange, and that of the combined company following the Share Exchange.


The Company engages in the designing, prototyping and building a closed loop plastics recycling business that leverages a proprietary de-polymerization technology.


All references to shares of common stock in this Report on Form 10-Q give retroactive effect to a one-for-four (1:4) reverse split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock, which reverse split took effect on the OTCQB on September 21, 2015.


Basis of Consolidation


These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP") and comprise the consolidated financial position and results of operations of Loop Industries Inc. and an operating division of 8198381 Canada Inc., (Loop Canada) a Canadian Company that is owned 100% by the majority shareholder of Loop Industries Inc. 


The Company determined due to the close association between the Company and the division of Loop Canada, the ongoing management of Loop Canada by the Company's majority stockholder, that the activities of Loop Canada are principally related to the Loop Industries, Inc., and the Company's right to receive the outputs from the activities of Loop Canada which could potentially be significant to the Company, Loop Canada is a variable interest entity (VIE) requiring consolidation with the Company. The Company determined that it is both the Primary beneficiary and provider of financial support to these Loop Canada operations.


Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.


Going Concern


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. As reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has no recurring source of revenue and during the three months ended May 31, 2016, the Company incurred a net loss of $1.0 Million and used cash in operations of $0.8 Million. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to raise additional funds and implement its business plan. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.


Management estimates that the current funds on hand will not be sufficient to continue operations through the next twelve months or for us to achieve our business plan to finalize the transition to our facilities from pilot scale to a full scale commercial manufacturing facility. Management is currently seeking additional funds, primarily through the issuance of debt and equity securities for cash to operate our business, and estimates that a significant amount of capital will be necessary to advance the development of our projects to the point at which they will become commercially viable.


No assurance can be given that any future financing will be available or, if available, that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to the Company. Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue restrictions on our operations, in the case of debt financing or cause substantial dilution for our stock holders, in case of equity financing. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on management's plans, which include further implementation of its business plan and continuing to raise funds through debt and/or equity raises.
